Re: The Voice 4

My prediction for top 3 in the finals are:

Michelle Chamuel
Karina Iglesias
Judith Hill (I think her connection to MJ will bite her in the end, people will skip voting for her either because they think she's safe from elimination or that she didn't have to work hard and hence shouldn't win)

Strangely, none of the guys impress me this time round.

Is it a new mic they're using? I notice everyone's voices sounded a little different in weird way, a little hoarser and breaths are throatier and more audible.. way easier to hear when they go off pitch.
Carson did say on Monday night that this year's live performances will be "stripped down" to give us a more "authentic" performance or something like that, so maybe that is what we are hearing.

Re: The Voice 4

So apparently the online voting method went down last night and never came back. I wonder how much that will skew the outcome for Tuesday's performers. The other voting methods were intact, but website clicking would seem like it'd be the source of the most votes.

I don't think she's anything special to begin with. I think her whole MJ connection wins her some votes. She doesn't emote, the music is a job to her, she has no emotional connection to it.

Re: The Voice 4

I think Judith is too good to win The Voice, if that makes sense. Her talent will get her far in the voting, but eventually the voters will turn on her.

A bit surprised it was Sarah Simmons who had to get saved tonight, which means she won't be making it to the end.

Re: The Voice 4

Interesting that the vast majority of votes weren't counted, but that it didn't change the outcome (or so they say). After watching all of this week's performances the only real standouts for me are Michelle Chamuel and Judith Hill. Danielle Bradbery is pretty good as well, though that seems to come down to song choice quite a bit for her.

Re: The Voice 4

All four of the performances I liked advanced, and three of them by popular vote. (Michelle Chamuel, Judith Hill, Garett Gardner, Sasha Allen).

But I'm befuddled by Amber Carrington and Danielle Bradbery being the two highest selling on iTunes. They were two of the blandest performances to my ears.

Yeah, I don't really understand it either. As I said before, with Danielle Bradbery I think it might be more about song choice. I really love the song she performed and now I've gone back and listened to the original, even though I didn't think her performance of it was necessarily the most amazing. Amber Carrington I don't get at all, as I'm sure you could tell from my comments earlier in the thread about her. I don't even remember what song she sang. She's just so dang forgettable.

I also think that the four you pointed out are definitely my favorites to win, and I think have a very good shot at making it far. I'm not sure why Garett Gardner wasn't saved by the vote though, I thought he was very good and he has that "bad boy" look to him that teenage girls seem to love. Oh well, hopefully he has a better song choice next time.

And I love how for every performance this past week the coaches basically said the same thing, "I chose a song that will show their soft, intimate side." They all wanted to show us "a different side" to their singers. That's great, except when it becomes every performance.

I can't believe the other coaches hadn't heard the song Fishin' in the Dark. I don't even listen to much country and I have known that song my whole life. I can sing all of the lyrics and I don't even know how or when I learned them.

By the way, I still don't understand Usher's attachment to Josiah. The dude is boring and always has a smug look on his face. I understand why he made it this far but I wouldn't have saved him. Usher seems to think he will be a hit somehow. The guy has some great skill for finding talent, but I'm not seeing it in that one.

Re: The Voice 4

Once again, Sasha Allen blows me away and gets a lukewarm response, then Danielle Bradbery sings a technically competent bland performance that sounds like something played on the speaker at CVS and gets buried in hyperbole. I'm genuinely concerned about the stability of the fabric of the universe right now.

I'm not sure what Garrett Gardner was thinking with his song choice. Maybe he thought because McKenzie pulled off a One Direction song last season that he could do it with the Backstreet Boys?

Re: The Voice 4

My understanding is that Shakira chose that song for him, Garrett didn't necessarily have much choice in the matter. But yeah that was weird.

The only performance that I truly enjoyed was Judith Hill's. Maybe I'm over this show or something, because I really found most of the performances to be terribly bland.

Re: The Voice 4

Judith's ego is way too big for this show. Tonight, for example, they are singing a mellow song as a team with Adam and then she starts barking and bellowing. If she wins, I won't quit the show, but I will be disappointed.

The audience will probably get tired of her. Awesome from the start, technically proficient, but can't really get better or offer any surprises. I don't expect her to win, and she's not selling that great on iTunes so far if that's any indicator.

So Tuesday's round of voter eliminations was no surprise. I knew Garrett was gone for sure. Vedo being voted through last week and being ousted this week makes me think Usher's singers will whittle down to just Michelle pretty quickly.

Blake and Adam have been known to collaborate with their singers for what song to choose. They made a pretty big deal about The Swon Brothers picking a George Jones song for Monday. During season two, the snippets with Blake made it appear that Jermaine Paul was picking all his own songs. I think there was a singer on Adam's team one year where the song wasn't working so they just tossed it and picked a new one.

Maybe it's the editing, but it appears that Shakira and Usher are picking the songs and that's the final say.

Re: The Voice 4

For me, the three that continuously stand out are Sasha Allen, Judith Hill and Michell Chamuel. The rest are technically competent but bland. Far weaker crop than last year.

Even if Shakira somehow thought her growling rocker should sing a boy band song, why that one? One whose melody sounds super-weird if it's not sung by at least two different people.

Re: The Voice 4

I may be biased because of my love of Amy Whitcomb's voice, but I agree that this year's top 16 singers are technically competent but very bland. In fact, I tuned out after Judith Hill's performance. I still feel Amy should have at least been in the top 16 :P

These are pretty much my feelings as well. Michelle is my favorite, then Judith, then everyone else is just okay after that.
