The Voice US 10: Top 11

What is happening?! I am starting to think that this could end up to be a dud season to be honest. The competition is just boring me now to be honest. I don’t know. I am starting to feel disconnect and unexcited about the season.

Anyway, here is how I rank the top 11.

[11] NICK HAGELIN
Your Body Is A Wonderland
Team CHRISTINA

– Yikes. It’s official, Nick is such a cute guy. That’s it. 4

[10] DANIEL PASSINO
Time After Time
Team PHARRELL

– Stop all this cheesy breezy karaoke-ness. 4.5

[9] SHALYAH FEARING
The Climb
Team ADAM

– Seriously Adam? After going up to the mountain last week, you made her sing about her “climb”?! What’s for next week? Going the distance? Haha. Look, the song choices were just on the nose for me but more than that Shalyah’s technique is really flawed that I wish Adam would concentrate in helping her that. Her vocal control is ridicuously non-existent. 5

[8] OWEN DANOFF
Fire & Rain
Team ADAM

– I had high hopes from Owen and then I fell asleep. 5

[7] BRYAN BAUTISTA
Just The Way You Are
Team CHRISTINA

– Why Christina, why?! I appreciate the idea of making it his own but instead of making this contemporary song go to the next level of awesomeness, Bryan got stacked to this retro vibe going on with the Bruno Mars ditty that I personally think didn’t really work at all. I miss Bryan and how he effortlessly nails his performances prior the live shows. Bring it back!!! 5.5

[6] ADAM WAKEFIELD
Lights
Team BLAKE

– Did I prematurely declare him as a dark horse last week when suddenly he gave a decent but very disconnected performance tonight? Vocally it was still good but then I felt cold after watching his performance. 6

[5] MARY SARAH
Johnny & June
Team BLAKE

– Decent but I am not sure if Blake is really giving her the right song choices that will highlight her vocal techniques and how potentially would place her in the competition. Because right now? She is a decent, generic but forgettable country singer from Team Blake. 6

[4] ALISAN PORTER
Stay With Me Baby
Team CHRISTINA

– Yikes. After her solid performance last week, Alisan delivered a very disconnected yet vocally strong performance. I think it is due to her not really wanting this song to sing but she suck it up although I could really feel how she didn’t really connect to this. 6.5

[3] LAITH AL-SAADI
Make It Rain
Team ADAM

– Woah! The bluesy-jazzy feel backed up with that grit and beautifully phrased verses from Laith just saved the whole night of underwhelming performances. I didn’t expect this from him. 8

[2] PAXTON INGRAM
Break Every Chain
Team BLAKE

– Interesting. I am so ready to write him off but then again what do I know when he survived last week’s elimination despite some poor itunes rankings and performing early. But then he turned it around this week and delivered this passionate vocal performance. No it wasn’t perfect but I am pleased. 8

[1] HANNAH HUSTON
I Can’t Make You Love Me
Team PHARRELL

– While I thought it could be better if she took it more in a tender, intimate version, for what is worth, this is still a solid, beautifully phrased and gorgeously sang performance. 8.5
