The Voice Recap: Cole Vosbury OWNS Top 12

by at . Comments

The Voice's top 12 gave it their all on Monday night, after last week saw eight of the final 20 cut loose before our eyes. The margin for error is slim to none.

It remains to be seen if voters will deliver surprises (a la the Dancing With the Stars results show), but some decisions will be easier than others.

Who shone brightest and who will be sweating bullets when the votes are tallied Tuesday night? Let's break down all of last night's Top 12 performances!

Cole Vosbury took on a smooth, crooning, gem like "Adorn" by Miguel and still managed to pull it off as a white guy with a beard. Pretty terrific.

Matthew Schuler sang "Hallelujah," the real credit for which goes to Leonard Cohen for penning it, and Jeff Buckley for covering it. Still, he was solid.

Kat Robichaud is an animal on stage, in the best way. Prowling around like there's no tomorrow and leaving nothing in the bag. A real contender.

Tessanne Chin is as talented as any women on The Voice in its five seasons, but this performance seemed a bit safe by her standards. Is she coasting?

James Wolpert nailed "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers, if not for his vocals than with his performance, which left not a drop of energy in the tank.

Jacquie Lee put her unique spin on U2's "Love Is Blindness," which proved an amazing song choice for her, even if the judges weren't thrilled.

Austin Jenckes rocked Travis Tritt's "It's A Great Day To Be Alive" and surely won a few votes in the process. You had to smile at his latest effort.

Caroline Pennell taking on the hit by Avicii made for solid performance with some interesting changes. Can that and her popularity keep her safe?

Josh Logan covered MJ's "Man In The Mirror," and while he nailed the impression, he may have leaned too much on the backup singers, and lack the star power.

Jonny Gray said that "Another Day In Paradise" reminded him of childhood, and halfway through, he channeled that emotion that made you believe it.

Will Champlin did not seem to have the range to take this Imagine Dragons song where it needed to go, although he was still very much listenable.

Ray Boudreaux sang a John Legend tune that while perfectly pleasant and well-performed, didn't show off his true potential, in the eyes of some.

Which performers punched their tickets to next week? Who do you think should go home on the results show? Which coach has the best team remaining?
