Miley Cyrus is the final coach to take whittle her team of six down to three in preparation for the live shows, and it it's a complicated process for the singer and coach because her group of six were very strong.
But Miley also had to take into consideration the fact that voting was opening when the live shows kicked off and that she needed people who would strike a chord with the public.
As much as The Voice is a show about people with the best singing technique advancing to the next stage, it is also a popularity contest, and if your contestant is not popular, it makes things dicey.
Brooke Simpson - “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”
Brooke wanted to choose her song for herself, and it became clear that she should get to do that for the whole season because her performance was extraordinary. From the quiet opening, right up to the epic conclusion, she owned that stage.
Thankfully, she advanced to the next stage, and we are pleased about it.
Karli Webster - “Coat of Many Colors”
Unlike most of the other artists who have appeared on the show via a comeback, Karli had an excellent song that paired up well with her voice. While her performance was excellent, it was difficult to set it apart from Brooke's and that Miley decided it was best to cut her losses with the performer.
This stage is not the best because some of the better singers slip through the cracks, but that's just the name of the game.
Adam Pearce - “Love Hurts”
Miley wanted Adam to succeed, and that's why she gave him this song. She thought it was time to let audiences see the real him, but he still seemed like a bit of a nervous wreck.
His singing was great, but without that charisma to get audiences on side, it was not worth the risk to take him any further.
Ashland Craft - “When I Think About Cheatin'”
Ashland worried about going for the high notes, but Miley was not one to let that slide and pushed her act to perform to the best of her ability. She secured the high note, and that was enough for Miley to keep her in the process.
Moriah Formica - “World Without You”
Moriah wanted to make it to the live shows, so she cranked up the volume, but her voice sounded shaky throughout the whole performance, and it proved that she was not the right one to advance. Miley let her go.
Janice Freeman - “Fall for You”
Janice had her work cut out for her with that song choice, but it was a thrilling rendition that made everyone happy. Yes, she got through!
So, that means we have 12 people hitting up the stage next week for the first live show of the season.
Let's recap who is advancing...
- Team Adam: Addison Agen, Jon Mero, Adam Cunningham
- Team Miley: Brooke Simpson, Janice Freeman, Ashland Craft
- Team Jennifer: Davon Fleming, Shi’Ann Jones, Noah Mac
- Team Blake: Keisha Renee, Red Marlow, Chloe Kohanski
