The Voice (U.S. Season 8) Top 6 Instant Save Performance Personal Rankings


#TeamChristina, both Kimberly Nichole and India Carney, is in the Bottom 2, WHERE THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO BE IN!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!?

And worst of all: KIMBERLY WAS ELIMINATED!! WHAT THE F*CK!? A standout performer, gone in an instant!? Not to be disrespectful to India, but Team Xtina’s chances of winning in this season drastically decreased. And I was really hoping Christina would win this season! Without a seasoned performer, she just again, might lose.

Why did it have to be based largely on iTunes downloads, anyway? It is not the most accurate gauge of an artist’s flexibility and prominence. People’s musical preferences change over time; and so must artist’s musical abilities. Let’s just see if this season’s The Voice Season 8 winner will still be prominent after a couple of years. Hah! Sure, it’s called The Voice, in the sense that the vocals are given much focus. But once the artists expire their contracts with The Voice and get out in the real music business, vocals alone are not enough to sell records.

I couldn’t help but reflect, the earlier seasons of American Idol had a better voting system.

*sigh* Anyway, in modern singing competitions, it is the runners-up who outshine the winners of these shows. Cue:

…Avery Wilson…

…and Jacquie Lee.

The Voice (U.S. Season 8) Top 6 Personal Rankings

We are getting close to the finale and I do hope this will turn out to be an amazing season for The Voice (U.S.A.). With an awesome pool of talent, it gets difficult to pick favorites! But anyway, here are my personal picks from the remaining Top 6 artists:

6. Sawyer Fredericks – “Take Me to the River”

I’m not used to seeing Sawyer perform an upbeat song; well, not that upbeat, but probably upbeat for his usual style. He did have a very strong vocal delivery on this song. However, with a song like this, you really have to groove it. There were times when I thought he would attempt to dance, but he did not. I guess it just was not his style to sing and groove / sing and dance. Good thing there were dancers in his performance, or else it would have looked awkward.

5. Koryn Hawthorne – “Dream On”

Oh my goodness! This was an amazing delivery! Really strong, powerful, edgy, and it had a great build-up; although not much at the end. There were also some words that were difficult to understand, but dang! That was one awesome vocal!

4. Joshua Davis – “Desire”

Awesome performance! Not enough to really stand out, but still very good! He deserves to go on! Plus, I really love his soft, whispery tone. I said it before, and I will say it again: I love to have a voice made up of Joshua’s manly and soft tones with Rob Taylor’s falsetto and deep bass.
