The Voice Season 13 is close to its conclusion, and after a double elimination last week, it became clear to the final eight contestants that they needed to up their game if they wanted to make it to finale night.
It is getting more difficult to benchmark the contestants given that the weaker competitors are out of the competitive loop.
Adam Cunningham (Team Adam) – "I’m Already There”
Adam shocked audiences last week by managing to escape the bottom three, and you could tell it instilled some confidence in him after circling the drain for so long.
Adam was told he could choose his songs, and that gave him yet another boost. It’s a real shame when some acts lose out on points because of terrible song choices.
His performance was an excellent portrayal of his talents, and proved he still has a lot left to give the competition. He should make it to next week.
Davon Fleming (Team Jennifer) – “Gravity”
Davon is one of the only competitors this season who can flawlessly execute the high notes, so it seemed odd that he went with a John Mayer song.
Maybe he wanted to show off a different side to his voice, and it worked. Everything about the performance was different from his previous ones, and that’s a good thing.
Red Marlow (Team Blake) – “Go Rest High On That Mountain”
Red has got to be one of the most consistent performers in the history of the series. His latest take on a Vince Gill classic was littered with set pieces that added to the whole performance in a positive way.
From the country vocals to the brilliant intonation, it was one of the best of the night.
Keisha Renee (Team Blake) – “What Hurts the Most”
Keisha took to the stage and owned it in winning fashion with a number that did not seem to belong to a specific genre, but it showed off her vocal prowess.
She took the feedback from Rascal Flatts to heart and that’s about all the coaches could ask for at this stage.
Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake) – “I Want to Know What Love Is”
For someone who has been killing it every week, this performance was not all that. Chloe has been receptive to feedback all season long, but it seems like she forgot the memo that you can’t try and replicate performances like the one Hunter Plake did on Season 12.
She was still one of the better performers on the night, but it was a disappointment.
Noah Mac (Team Jennifer) – “River”
Where did this performance even come from? Like, Noah has been decent and all, but this one blew me away. It was infectious, enthralling and exciting all at the same time.
If he does not make it to the final, there will likely be a whole lot of people going crazy.
Addison Agen (Team Adam) – “Both Sides Now”
In a strange twist of fate, much of the middling performers emerged as the top performers during Monday night’s telecast. Addison emerged from the pack in a big way with a Joni Mitchell classic.
She put her own spin on it, and it worked in her favor.
Brooke Simpson (Team Miley) – “Faithfully”
Leave it to Brooke to make us tear up at the close of the episode. Brook went with a Journey classic, and what she delivered was somewhat extraordinary.
Will this last-minute change of pace secure her some more votes?
