The Voice 9: Live PlayOffs (2)

So last night was a pretty decent start for live shows albeit some uncontrolled nerves that shook up some performances. Tonight, the Live PlayOffs continue with Team Pharrell & Team Blake taking centerstage.

Pharrell’s team is a diverse one so I am excited with how this will turn out. Of course we all know Pharrell in past seasons chooses the most dated song choices but basing on the song spoilers, we had a variety of choices this time. Thank God! Oh, his wildcard choice is Celeste Betton by the way.

As for Blake. Yep, it’s a country team! I cannot even fathom that he almost got a whole team of country singers. If not only for Ivonne Acero and his wildcard choice, Nadjah Nicole.. this will be one countrified Team Blake! Lol. So I am really afraid for the chances of Nadjah and especially Ivonne for the Top 12.

Anyway, here is how the night 2 of the PlayOffs went on:

TEAM PHARRELL

6. DARIUS SCOTT
Love Lockdown

– Darius started fine but once he picked up, everything just fell all over the place. Such a shame. 5

5. CELESTE BETTON
Something In The Water

– Celeste can sing but her delivery of this Carrie Underwood tune is a bit of disappointing. Her vocals were a bit shaky. Her depth is quite uneven that it didn’t give us that impact to wow. 6

4. MARK HOOD
What Do You Mean

– Just like Darius, Mark started really well. I mean it was a gorgeous beginning but then he decided in his best interest todo some unnecessary runs and ad libs that felt too much on this Bieber ditty. 6

3. RILEY BIEDERER
Should’ve Been Us

– There’s something beautiful on her delivery that I adore. Her tone is quite lovely though the vocals were not perfect. She hit some good glory notes. 7

2. EVAN MCKEEL
Overjoyed

– It didn’t felt like the gorgeousness of his acapella version during the Blinds, but I must say, Evan still was able to hit all the right notes. His phrasing is gorgeous. His voice is simply lovely. I must agree with Gwen though, he needs to let go more and be natural. 7.5

1. MADI DAVIS
Songbird

– Fantastic! Simple, honest and stunning vocals. 8

TEAM BLAKE

6. NADJAH NICOLE
Upside Down

– Dated, cheesy, underwhelming. Why did Blake saddled her with such song choice?! Sigh. 5

5. MORGAN FRAZIER
Lips Of An Angel

– This wasn’t even bad at all but it was forgettable. 6

4. EMILY ANN ROBERTS
In The Garden

– The vocals were weaker than her usual but this will sell pretty good to the usual viewers of the show. But I thought this wasn’t as good as the usual performance of Emily. 6.5

3. IVONNE ACERO
One Of Us

– The vocals are not perfect but his dynamics and voca choices were decently good. Her pitch is beautiful and she’s more comfortable than ever. Great job! 7

2. BARRETT BABER
I Drive Your Truck

– Nothing can deny that Barrett can deliver quite well. His vocals were gorgeous and his pitch is spot on. He also has some good stage charisma that easily appeals. 7

1. ZACH SEABAUGH
Brand New Girlfriend

– Say what you want about Zach but he just realy delivery a confident, comfortable and solid performance. That gyration is an added touch as he showed that he is ready for this. Sure the vocals were just decent but it was a fun little performance from a good looking Zach. 7.5
