Tonight was really underwhelming. I can’t see any of tonight’s battle winners winning the show, but you never know what kind of support Blake will get from his country-loving fans. To me, though, it’s all about Team Adam and Team Shakira.
Justin v. Savannah – Battle of the bad song choices. Really bizarre song choices. I don’t get it. I wonder if Blake chose Justin because Adam stupidly ditched Warren and there are now votes up for grabs from viewers who like cute, male country singers. Or, it just could be because Savannah did not sing well. Of course, he didn’t sing well either. Warren’s kicking himself for choosing Adam.
Josiah v. Jess - Josiah’s song choice and arrangement made no sense. And he didn’t sing that well. He brings the pretty, and I guess that’s what Usher “heard.” I would have gone with Jess.
Holly v. Luke – I thought she was okay. She doesn’t have the strongest voice, and I think a little more power would work better for this song. I thought Luke was just okay. I didn’t really dig the arrangement.
Audrey v. Michelle - The nerd deservedly beat the beauty.
Danielle v. Taylor – I didn’t understand why Blake stole Taylor. I still don’t. I would have picked Danielle, too. Danielle bugs me, though. She seems phony. I don’t believe her when she says that she had never performed before The Voice. I believe that she never performed on tv. But that’s it.
C v. Vedo – I would have gone with Vedo, too.
Grace v. The Swon Brothers - I would have gone with Grace. I though her vocal was more interesting. The Swon Brothers were not remotely original and not particularly special.
Cathia v. Ryan – Cathia didn’t do much for me. Ryan is more my type of singer, but I didn’t think he was that great. I probably would have gone with Ryan, especially since I think Cathia would have a problem competing for votes with the other female pop contestants.
