The Voice US 10: Top 9


It was surprisingly a solid night for the show. Almost every one gave a good to outstanding performance.

I’m hopeful that the bloodbath of eliminations for next week will be filled with stellar performances.

On to the rankings..

[9] NICK HAGELIN
Hold On, We’re Going Home
Team CHRISTINA

– His tone is the usual thin one but surprisingly this is way better than his previous performances. There are some parts that sounded pretty here. 5

[8] ALISAN PORTER
Cryin’
Team CHRISTINA

– When she started screaming, it felt like she was showboating. Then I lost it. 5

[7] PAXTON INGRAM
I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Team BLAKE

– My concern with Paxton is that you can’t really identify the kind of artists he wants to be. The song choices are in the range of Celine Dion to Whitney Houston to Selena Gonez to name a few and I am a bit confused. This wasn’t bad but I guess he hit his one trick stride during Top 11. 6

[6] SHALYAH FEARING
A Change Is Gonna Come
Team ADAM

– Control. Still, the technicals are what is killing Shalyah. She sounded decent but there is no deptness to this that will elevate her to something memorable and outstanding. 6.5

[5] ADAM WAKEFIELD
Love Has No Pride
Team BLAKE

– Solid but it is the expected showing from Adam. But there is no denying that this sounded fantastic with his pitch and tone on point. I just wanted more connection from him and yes, something unexpected. 7.5

[4] LAITH AL- SAADI
We’ve Got Tonight
Team ADAM

– I actually like this. His tone complimented the song and it has that build up that is solid and good. His tone is decent and the performance is quite lovely. 8

[3] HANNAH HUSTON
Say You Love Me
Team PHARRELL

– It took a while before she builds it up. Her tone is simply gorgeous. The vocals were outstanding and the transition is flawless. Lovely! 8

[2] MARY SARAH
My Church
Team BLAKE

– Where did this come from? There’s just that fire and passion and confidence from Mary that is oozing naturally. Her tone sounded wonderful and the performance is almost pitch perfect! Great job. 8.5

[1] BRYAN BAUTISTA
1 + 1
Team CHRISTINA

– Welcome back Bryan! This was outstanding and I hope it is enough for him to gain back the momentum and gain more fans. The overall performance is simply stellar. 9
