Have you noticed how many amazing talents are competing to be ‘The Voice’ this season? Carson Daly, the show’s host and producer, did. The show changed up its format this week; it will send only one home tomorrow instead of its traditional two. The top six performed two songs: one their coach selected and the second, their own pick.
Usher delivered the night’s best surprise during his rehearsal with his sole remaining artist, Michelle Chamuel. While Michelle worked to master her song choice, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” guess who walked into the studio? Taylor Swift. Can you imagine singing an artist’s song to that artist? As Usher said, “Things like that happen when you’re on Team Usher!”
You can’t argue- Usher’s coaching strategy was brilliant! When the artist who sang the song gives approval and enjoyed it…what other assurances do you need to succeed? Michelle’s got it all: Power. Style. Presence. We’re confident saying Michelle isn’t going anywhere tomorrow night.
Sasha Allen not only looked gorgeous, but she delivered a powerhouse rendition of “Ain’t No Way” by Aretha Franklin. Shakira showed Sasha can sing anything when she chose Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.” Now, that’s a great, bad-ass song. She worked the stage and became “Sasha Fierce” when she ripped her dress off to reveal a little black number. Hopefully, she nabbed your votes. She deserves it.
Our show favorite, Amber Carrington had a great night. Adam took her famous versatility to the next level when he chose 1990s rock anthem, “I’ll Remember You” by Skid Row. Amber selected a song that screams country, Patsy Kline’s “Crazy.” Both performances were solid perfection. Please vote! She needs to stay another few weeks.
Team Blake had the most to prove Monday night with three artists still in the running: the Swon Brothers, Danielle Bradbery and Holly Tucker.
To be honest, we haven’t been a real fan of the Swon Brothers. They’re goofy, light-hearted and of course, talented. They are the only duo to make it this far in the history of the show, so that says something. But, last night- they had their best performances to date: Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel” and a 1969 classic, “Okie from Muskogee.” The question is- do you want to see them in the next round?
Blake went back to Pam Tillis collection of hits and selected “Shake The Sugar Tree” for fan-favorite Danielle Bradbery. She chose Sara Evans’ “A Little Bit Stronger” but, struggled a bit during rehearsal. Do you think she nailed it on stage? She did. She’ll be back next week.
Holly Tucker’s song choices were good, she picked “My Wish” by the Rascal Flatts and Blake selected “When God-Fearin’ Women Get The Blues” to show her sassy side. Her Martina McBride performance left us and the coaches wanting more from her.
Tell us what you think? We’re predicting tomorrow night will be Holly’s last and Danielle and Michelle are clearly the front-runners with Sasha Fierce not far behind!
