The Voice US 10: Top 12

At some point of tonight’s episode, I am thinking if we really had the right final 12 people but then I digress. Tonight was a mixed bag for me. The usual artists delivered while some were either settled with terrible song choices or was just really underwhelming.

Nonetheless, here is how I rank the Top 12:

[12] NICK HAGELIN
Mine Would Be You
Team CHRISTINA

– His vocals faded away in the background, I’m starting to wo der if he moved forward only because of his good looks. Nick needs to find a song that will suit him more than him trying to fit in the song. 5

[11] PAXTON INGRAM
Hands To Myself
Team BLAKE

– It’s an interesting song choice and I like that Paxton is entertaining the audience with this upbeat vibe he has going on but his vocals were just really inconsistent with most of the time, I find the performance more on the annoying side na. 5

[10] DANIEL PASSINO
Human Nature
Team PHARRELL

– It’s so cheesy, I suddenly had lactose intolerance. 5

[9] MARY SARAH
So Small
Team BLAKE

– I have been pointing out how Mary Sarah is sounding like Carrie but then once she took this Carrie song, she fails miserably. Her high notes was sharp. She hit a couple of flat notes and somehow she got me uninterested with her. Probably if she took the song to a more intimate level, that would highlight her generic but capable voice. 5.5

[8] OWEN DANOFF
7 Years
Team ADAM

– Owen is a good storyteller and on paper, this should be a homerun but somehow it just didn’t work. His vocals were shaky. His performance is bland and on the edge of boredom – if not – already a snoozefest. 6

[7] LAITH AL-SAADI
Born Under A Bad Sign
Team ADAM

– Nothing really bad about this but thag tone of his is keeping me off track. It just for me isn’t an appealing sound. And probably it is with the song choice too. I just wasn’t got excited. 6

[6] BRYAN BAUTISTA
Kiss From A Rose
Team CHRISTINA

– Christina, where’s the guy who sang “Sorry”? This was in no way a bad performance but it just suck out the things that made Bryan one of the dark horse of the competition. 6.5

[5] EMILY KEENER
Lilac Wine
Team PHARRELL

– While not great, it wasn’t bad too. The vocals were fine albeit some sleepy moments but I digress. 7

[4] SHALYAH FEARING
Up To The Mountain
Team ADAM

– Control. Shalyah could’ve been that dark horse if only Adam could coach her the right techniques and essential in having a flawless vocal performance. While not bad, there are parts that made this performance a bit off. 7

[3] HANNAH HUSTON
Something’s Got A Hold On Me
Team PHARRELL

– The consistency of Hannah is quite a pleasure to watch and this showed a more upbeat side of her and it proved that she can do versatility. Now if only she is singing something more contemporary because she’s been doing classics that I feel like the younger audience isn’t connecting with her yet. 7.5

[2] ADAM WAKEFIELD
Soul Shine
Team BLAKE

– Woah! Adam is really something rare that I enjoy listening too. His vocals here is gorgeous. His control is lovely and the phrasing is just wonderful. 8

[1] ALISAN PORTER
Stone Cold
Team CHRISTINA

– Great! Finally something that she had control on vocally with great nuances and right amount of power. Her ad libs sounded gorgeous and it didn’t felt like she was showboating. 8.5
