The Voice Recap: Who Survived Night 2 of the Knockouts?
Night 2 of the Knockouts brought more of the same.
By that, we mean some downright awful decisions from the coaches, some more input from Mariah Carey, and some sub-par singing.
Hey, the show has been going for over seven years, so it was only a matter of time before the bar for talent had to be lowered.
But who survived the three Knockouts on Tuesday night?
Team Jennifer: Franc West singing “Call Out My Name” vs. Tyshawn Colquitt singing “Pillowtalk”
Jennifer was open and honest about putting these two together because they sound so similar. It’s survival of the fittest at this stage of the game, so it made sense.
Mariah wanted Franc to dial it back because he was essentially following the original version of his Weeknd cover, and it was repetitive.
The musical powerhouse also told Tyshawn to start quiet and get progressively louder as the performance goes on.
Franc took the advice on board, and it worked in his favor. His performance oozed confidence, but the same could not be said for Tyshawn’s.
Basically, he fell apart after the first verse, and never quite recovered.
Jennifer stuck to her guns and kept Franc.
Team Kelly: Abby Cates singing “Because of You” vs. Claire DeJean singing “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”
Abby’s nerves continued to get the best of her, so she went with a Kelly song that was switched up by the original performer of the song.
As for Claire, they were worried she was rushing through the performance and told her to take baby steps with it.
Abby dominated her Knockout, and the nerves seemed to subside early on which was a huge positive. Claire turned in a decent performance, but it was no match for the one Abby performed before her.
Kelly kept Abby, and Claire was sent home.
Team Blake: Dave Fenley singing “Stuck On You” vs. Kameron Marlowe singing “I Shot the Sheriff”
Mariah had only positive vibes to send at Dave and Kameron. She felt they were strong vocally, and that they were ticking all of the boxes.
Dave managed to sing from the heart during his performance, and wowed the coaches, while Kameron languished like he already felt his time on the show was over.
However, Adam stepped in to give Kameron another chance.
