The Voice US 8: Meet the Top 12

This is probably the strongest crop of artists the voice US had built to date. I mean, we saw some talented and strong artists being let go left and right but the remaining people are still strong. Nothing to take away from the previous seasons but this season is pretty damn solid all in all. I just hope they are also translating well to the audience.

Season 8 could be the season where Pharrell and Christina could get their first crown especially with Pharrell having the early front runner and itunes topper, Sawyer Fredericks, plus he still has two belting, young divas on his team. With Christina, her three people were pretty solid as well and were looking as they could really take on any song any moment of time. We could also expect Blake to give a good fight because in his side, he has the perfect formula for another win. Corey Kent White is good looking, a guitar playing young guy, and his genre is.. well, country! With Adam, he had the potential dark horse of the competition and even if his team is weaker than his usual, he has his ways of making moments. Case in point: Chris Jamison & Matt McAndrew of Season 7, Christina Grimmie of Season 6.

Now here is the usual rundown of who made it to this season’s top 12. I also included their best performance to date and some song suggestions that I think would be perfect for them.
