The Voice US 10: Knockouts (2)

The Voice US Season 10
Knockouts part 2 is on its way and we all know that last night, 3 STEALS were already used so it is impossible for an hour show to have a steal moment. This felt like a fodder episode. Lol.

Anyway, Miley Cyrus is actully not bad as a mentor as what I picture her to be, so I am actually excited to see the dynamics she will bring next season together with Alicia Keys.

Now on to the night.

ADAM WAKEFIELD
Bring It On Home To Me
Team BLAKE
WINNER (vs. Peyton Parker)

– Adam reminds me of Cole Vosbury before and I wouldn’t be surprise if Blake goes on a smart, risky move of making Adam sing something R&B to surprise everyone and skyrocket Adam to the final 12. His take on this Sam Cooke tune is solid with right grit and consistent vocal points. 7

PEYTON PARKER
Travelin’ Soldier
Team BLAKE
ELIMINATED (vs. Adam Wakefield)

– Yikes. She wasn’t that much connected with her material. More so, some of her notes were off pitch. 5

MOUSHUMI
New Americana
Team PHARRELL
WINNER (vs. Nick Hagelin)

– Moushumi keeps giving me this interest on her and the song choice was something current and probably a good one for her. It shows some of her lovely tone – a bit under pitch – but I’m impressed. 7

NICK HAGELIN
Lost Without U
Team PHARRELL
ELIMINATE (vs. Moushumi)

– The work on his falsettos is a bit messy as it goes off key some time. I wish he didn’t use the guitar because I felt it was just useless. The vocals weren’t consistent but there are parts where Nick sounded beautiful. Not topping the duet of Adam-Chris during the S7 Finale nor Robin Thicke’s original but this is decent. 6.5

MAYA SMITH
No One
Team CHRISTINA
ELIMINATED (vs. Tamar Davis)

– While this was solid in parts, it felt quite limited for Maya. Her vocals were fine but the overall impact of the song is quite forgettable. 7

TAMAR DAVIS
Lay Me Down
Team CHRISTINA
WINNER (vs. Maya Smith)

– Solid but I need more tender moments from her. Something that just doesn’t speak “diva”. Probably a more risky choices on her melody and liberties? We will see. 7.5
