The Voice Australia 5: Top 16

So the live shows starts tonight and the top 16 will battle it out on who will stay on their team. Yup, the franchise is sticking on that format.

So yeah, all of them are performing tonight and then each coach will choose one (1) artist to instantly save for next week’s live show anf then the remaining three (3)’s fate of the team will be decided by the public.

Now onto the performances.

TEAM JESSIE

4. BRIANNA HOLM
Samson

– It was an okay take for me. Her vocals were fine for most part and the hrasing sounded gorgeous. 7

3. JACK PELLOW
Blame It On Me

– This is hands down Jack’s best performance to date. He looked like he was having fun. His voice sounded solid and the beauty of his tone in his voice is more evident that ever. 7.5

2. MIKAELA DEAN
Take Me Home

– It was a fantastic rendition and how she managed to take this song to a more vocal bombast without failing to hit the right notes is remarkable. This is a nice improvement from her chaotic performance last week. 8

1. ELLEN REED
Ghost

– Ellen keeps on impressing me and this is another solid vocal performance from her. She looked very comfortable, her vocals sounded fantastic and her dynamics were impeccable. 8

Mikaela Dean

TEAM RONAN

4. GEORGIA WIGGINS
Hide Away

– There is something mismatch to this performance and I have been a believer of Georgia since day 1 but this is such a disappointment for me. The song choice is too on the nose that she sounded almost like the original but how she drops her verses is a bit uncomfortable for me. 6

3. EMAD YOUNAN
Vincent

– I expected this to be a homerun from Emad but part of it sounded lazy. The whole performance just didn’t connect. 6

2. TASH LOCKHART
Be The One

– I didn’t expect this from Tash but she was able to deliver such solid performance. Her vocals were strong and sounded really good. 7.5

1. MITCH GARDNER
Down Under

– It just came down on how put together this performance from Mitch. His tone sounded terrific than what I expectect and his vocals were almost spot on. Good job! 7.5

TEAM MADDEN

4. LANE SINCLAIR
Video Games

– I may get a flak about this but there is something disconnected for me in this performnce. While she sounded good, I was just left cold after. 6.5

3. LEXI CLARK
Rumour Has It

– While the song choice is tired already, Lexi worked on the material to her best of ability. The dynamics were impressive albeit some parts that came off too showboating. 6.5

2. ANDREW LOADSMAN
Say Something

– Andrew is a serious once he mangae to come up something as strong as his blinds. While I thought he did bring something with this song choice, it just didn’t really connect for me. Vocals were still outstanding and the rich tone is still superb but I needed him to make a stronger case on why he should be the front runner. 7

1. AALIYAH WARREN
Welcome To The Black Parade

– The genius arramgement is screaming all sorts of best performance of the night. While still good, Aaliyah’s performance lacks dynamics albeit some really good vocals happening here! 7

TEAM DELTA

4. ADAM LADELL
Imagine

– Am I the only one who didn’t connect with this performance? Probably I would have wanted a slower arrangement but I digress. The staging is good though. 6

3. ELLE MURPHY
Somebody To Love

– I didn’t expect Elle to do well with this performance. She showed comfort, confidence and her vocals were her strongest to date. 7

2. KIM SHEEHY
Heart’s A Mess

– That staging is fantastic backed up with Kim’s solid vocal performance! Great job! 7.5

1. ALFIE ARCURI
Pillowtalk

– The smoothness in his vocals is one of his strongest point but the way he navigated his verses tonight is quite impeccable. Solid phrasing. Great vocals! 8
