The Voice Recap: A Surprise Guest Appears
The Top 11 performed on the latest episode of The Voice, and Gwen Stefani made a surprise appearance.
During the commercials, she started taking pictures with Blake, and it was all then shown on live TV. Yes, it all took place during a split screen, so there really is no hiding from the cameras.
Back to the performances. There were some real shockers, and we have all the details below!
Janice Freeman – “Shine” by Collective Soul
Janice’s performances have been a bit all over the place throughout the season, and this one was no different. One second she can have the best voice around, and then she starts shouting, and it ruins the whole thing.
Shaky performances are not good because they can be a sign that the person is just too nervous to own a song, and that could be her ultimate undoing.
Red Marlowe – “The Dance” by Garth Brooks
Red likes to show off his country voice, but this was not the best song to do it. The performance was average at best, and he struggled to hit some of the lower notes, and that’s a bit alarming.
As a whole, it was decent because it was just the low notes he struggled with, but it should be a cautionary tale for him to choose the right song in the future.
Shi’Ann Jones – “Listen” by Beyoncé
Performing a Beyoncé is no easy feat, but this was a surprisingly convincing rendition. There were shaky vocals here and there, but for the most part, it was solid, and it should keep her fighting in the competition for another week.
Adam Cunningham – “American Girl” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
With the instant save saving Adam last week, the artist had to switch things up this week to garner some more votes. Thankfully, he delivered a rendition that was one of his best to date.
He really went back to the drawing board because he knew it was time to fix his vocals.
Brooke Simpson – “What About Us” by Pink
This should have been another excellent performance for Brooke, but there were some issues, and it was difficult to hear any of the vocals. This will not bode well when it comes to voting.
Davon Fleming – “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston
Who would have thought Davon would go with a Whitney song and make the judges putty in his hands? It was a phenomenal rendition that immediately put him up the food chain.
Ashland Craft – “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band
Ashland went all out for her latest performance, and you could tell she had taken all the feedback on board. The whole package was great, and she should have no trouble staying in the competition.
Addison Agen – “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell
Changing a song up is part of the game, and Addison did just that during the live show and it benefited her. With some high notes thrown in for good measure, it was one of her best performances yet.
Keisha Renee – “It Matters to Me” by Faith Hill
Keisha’s performance left a lot to be desired. Her vocals to date have been astounding, but this song was not the best one to show them off. Generally, she is one of the best of the night, but this was her worst night of the season.
Noah Mac – “Electric Love” by BØRNS
Woah! Noah turned in a stunning rendition that practically saw him parading across the stage! Everything about this was something you would expect from a recording artist, so that’s pretty good. If he winds up in danger tonight, then there will be trouble.
Chloe Kohanski – “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler
Chloe saved the best for last. Her performance defined the whole night and proved it was time for the others to step it up or go home.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Chloe just set the bar,” said Blake after hearing it.
Okay, so that’s a wrap on the Top 11 performances!
Who do you think will go home?
