Good news, Cee-Lo is coming back. Good news part two, Usher and Shakira will be back in Season 6. Bad news, we have to put up with Xtina.

Re: The Voice 4

Why don't we just give Judith Hill the crown now the way all these judges and even the damn host are drooling over her!

Re: The Voice 4

Danielle Bradbery beats her in iTunes sales and the coaches drool over her even more. And Bradbery is far less deserving.

The Swon Brothers may join my group of people I wouldn't mind seeing win.

Amber Carrington (Who's singing as I type this) is even more confusing. She has trouble hitting notes and has no personality, yet she's always toward the top in iTunes sales.

Edit: Likely eliminations are pretty obvious this week: Kris Thomas and Josiah Hawley

I think the Swon Brothers are going to be the only males in the final 8.

Re: The Voice 4

Another mediocre episode. Disappointing! None of the performances really stood out for me, but again Michelle Chamuel and Judith Hill did the best I think. It seemed like Danielle Bradbery and Amber Carrington did especially poor last night, just couldn't hit the notes that they were supposed to. I've liked Danielle in the past, and I like the song that she sang tonight, she just didn't do that well. Yet the judges, even Usher the Negative Nancy, didn't have anything bad to say.

I feel like there's a complete disconnect this season between the judges, the voters, and my own preferences. None of these three have been aligning and it's a bit frustrating to watch.

Re: The Voice 4

I think Sarah Simmons was great this episode, but it's true all the other performances weren't so hot. Michelle Chamuel and the Swon Brothers were good, Sasha Allen and Judith Hill were decent, the rest were pretty weak.

The iTunes sales chart confirms my suspicions about who is probably going home tonight. All the men who are not the Swon Brothers are way behind everything else. They're even behind some of the other performers' singles from previous weeks.

And Danielle Bradbery for some reason is the top selling again, even though she somehow managed to out-bland herself.

Re: The Voice 4

Swon Brothers, Danielle and Judith probably have the best chance of getting a proper career out of this. They're all talented and easy to package for marketing, though Judith could use some more personality. Michelle would be very difficult to market effectively, and the others really just don't have enough of a presence.

Re: The Voice 4

Judith could use any kind of personality. They made a big deal about how critics are saying she's riding MJ's coat tails and how wrong people are about her, but it's not that all. She is cold, emotionless, and besides snippets of last night, it doesn't seem like this would be life changing for her. She's not the package that is easy to market.

Vin Diesel is high on something, Michelle just looks embarrassed to be stuck with him.

She is uniquely attractive, multi-ethnic, sings like a beast, sang with MJ (they could do some sort of remix thing sampling their songs together), looks the part of a pop diva, etc. She should hire an image consultant like, right now, to help push whatever image is going to sell for her.

Re: The Voice 4

Sarah Simmonds is absolutely wrecking "Somebody That I Used To Know." One of my favorite songs and it just got ruined on national TV.

Re: The Voice 4

I think the Swon Brothers, Sasha Allen and Michelle Chamuel all had fantastic performances today.

Based on my ratings of their four songs in the live round:

Sasha Allen 37/40
Michelle Chamuel 34/40
Judith Hill 33/40
Swon Brothers 30/40
Sarah Simmons 28/40
Amber Carrington 24/40
Holly Tucker 23/40
Danielle Bradbery 16/40

And Danielle Bradbery is going to win. *sigh*

I'm going to go ten-vote Sasha Allen, Michelle Chamuel and the Swons.

I think Amber Carrington, Holly Tucker and Sarah Simmons are most vulnerable this week, but would not be surprised to see the Swons or Sasha Allen go either.

First verse sounded a little rough, did she screw up the lyrics or something? It was off. It wasn't bad though, just not an especially great fit for her. Adam might have been setting her up to take the fall this week since she probably doesn't have much chance at winning.

Re: The Voice 4

They really butchered many songs this week. I am not a fan of country music so none of Blake's singers have been interesting to me thus far. Sarah's rock growl just doesn't fit with Somebody That I Used To Know. Michelle's Grenade... hate to say this but Amy did it much better on The Sing-Off.

Re: The Voice 4

I noticed the audio quality was overall a lot better this week. Sounds like they might be doing some live processing on the vocals now to really pump up the wow factor.

I thought everything was great this week really. 'Somebody...' was a bit of a weak spot, but everyone was in good form, particularly considering how comparably weak this season has been as a whole.

Re: The Voice 4

Last night wasn't bad. Michelle Chamuel continues to be the only performer that really captivates me. I thought that Judith Hill and Danielle Bradbery had good performances as well. The rest didn't really catch my attention, though they weren't terrible. At the bottom of my list are Amber Carrington, Holly Tucker, and Sarah Simmons.

The Swon brothers are strange for me. They aren't bad by any means, but I don't really understand why they are popular. I enjoy country music, so it's not that. They just choose really boring songs and we usually hear their background singers more than them. They seem like nice guys but their performances are not interesting to me. I'm really surprised they've made it so far.

It's been a weird season.
