Season 4 knockouts nights one and two, were kinda frustrating for me. As has been the majority of Season 4 of The Voice. However I’ll still be running down each knockout performance.
Check out the Season 3 Knockouts post to find out how the knockouts work.
I love that in this 2 night part of The Voice, that both nights we get 2 hours of The Voice!!! Everyone gets to shine, whether they win or lose. So here we go…..
Knockut Rounds Night 1
A Knockout Between: Amber Carrington Vs Midas Whale
Amber Carrington’s Song Choice was: I’m With You
Midas Whale’s Song Choice was: Higher Ground
Loved Amber’s rendition of the Svril song. Thought that she performed it very well. midas Fail seeya! If they had maybe done the Red Hot Chili Peppers version of the song, it might have been better. However they suck in general in my opinion.
Amber won, Midas Whale lost.

A Knockout Between: Amy Whitcomb Vs Caroline Glaser
Amy Whitcomb’s Song Choice was: House Of The Rising Sun
Caroline Glaser’s Song Choice was: Little Talks
I know OptimusSolo loves Caroline as a singer, but I thought Amy did a knockout job. I really enjoyed her performance more then Caroline’s. It’s is gonna be interesting to see where Caroline goes from here and with what song.
Caroline won, and sadly Amy lost

A Knockout Between: Judith Hill Vs Orlando Dixon
Judith Hill’s Song Choice was: Always On My Mind
Orlando Dixon’s Song Choice was: All My Life
Judith versus Orlando, well Judith hands down. Orlando tore the K-Ci & Jojo song to shit. I love that song, but Orlando totally screwed the pooch on it. Judith was amazing as always, and again I’m interested to see where her singing goes from here.
Judith won, and Orlando lost the knockout

A Knockout Between: Warren Stone Vs Sarah Simmons
Warren Stone’s Song Choice was: (I just) Died In Your Arms
Sarah Simmons’s Song Choice was: Wild Horses
UGH Adam! I get that the coaches want to challenge people and all that, but yikes Warren is not an 80s pop singer. I thought that Warren was struggling with the song, and it was slightly out of key. Or at least I heard him not singing it properly. Sarah again was amazing.
Sarah was the winner, and Warren was the loser.

A Knockout Between: Garrett Gardner Vs Tawnya Reynolds
Garrett Gardner’s Song Choice was: Alex Clare’s Too Close
Tawnya Reynolds’s Song Choice was: Hell On Heels
Wow I can’t believe Shakira paired these two! Garrett rocked it like usual, and Tawnya was damn good as well… It’s sad to see her go. I’ve heard many other people singing the Alex Clare song, and by far Garrett has done it the best in my opinion.
Garrett won, and sadly Tawnya lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Kris Thomas Vs Mary Miranda
Kris Thomas’s Song Choice was: What A Wonderful World
Mary Miranda’s Song Choice was: Every Breath You Take
Mary picked the wrong song. She can’t sing Sting! Kris was awesome, and it’ll be interesting to see what other songs he’ll be challenged with.
Kris was the winner, Mary was the loser.

A Knockout Between: Karina Iglesias Vs Monique Abbadie
Karina Iglesias‘s Song Choice was: Are You Gonna Go My Way
Monique Abbadie‘s Song Choice was: The Power Of Love
I just wasn’t impressed with Karina this time around. I guess it’s th fact that I don’t think anyone besides Lenny Kravitz can sing Are You Gonna Go my Way very well. It’s sad to see Monique go, as she sung the better song this time around.
Karina won, Monique lost!

A Knockout Between: Sasha Allen Vs Shawna P.
Sasha Allen’s Song Choice was: At Last
Shawna P’s Song Choice was: Maybe I’m Amazed
Sasha was amaing, and Shawna was amazing! Both performances I thought were spot on. It was hard for me to see Shawna go, because she has loads of talent. I do like Sasha as well though, and At Last was the perfect choice for her.
Sasha won, and Shawna P lost this knockout.

Knockout Rounds Night 2
The Knockouts night 2! Team Blake Vs Team Usher! Let’s Go!!!!
A Knockout Between: Savannah Berry Vs Justin Rivers
Savannah Berry’s Song Choice was: As Long As You Love Me
Justin Rivers’s Song Choice was: The Climb
Why Blake WHY!!!???? These two should not have been paired up, and I know OptimusSolo will be sad seeing Savannah go. Justin I felt didn’t sing the song choice that great. Once again it goes to sometimes men shouldn’t sing women songs, and vice versa. Sacannah whyyyyy are you denying your country roots, ugh a Bieber choice yuk!
Justin won, Savannah lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Holly Tucker Vs Luke Edgemon
Holly Tucker’s Song Choice was: Live Like You Were Dying
Luke Edgemon’s Song Choice was: Teenage Dream
Holly was amazing! Once again it goes to show ya what songs both guys and girls can sing. On the flip side of that coin, Luyke shouldn’t have sung Teenage Dream, holy crap was that bad!!!!!
Holly won, and Luke lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Danielle Bradberry Vs Taylor Beckham
Danielle Bradberry’s Song Choice was: Jesus Take the Wheel
Taylor Beckham’s Song Choice was: Russian Roulette
Well well, it looks like OptimusSolo will be raging over this. Danielle is easily the winner in my eyes. Her song choice was great for her vocals. I don’t think Taylor knows what kind of artist she wants to be. She sounded like a cross between Adele and Gaga….. I didn’t care for her performance this time. Danielle based on this performance alone could win the whole show!
Danielle won, Taylor lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Grace Askew Vs The Swon Brothers
Grace Askew’s Song Choice was: I Can’t Stand The Rain
The Swon Brothers’ Song Choice was: Drift Away
The Swon Brothers were amazing! Grace was great, but there were little things here and there that I noticed, that she didn’t do that well. I agree with whichever coach said that Colton needs to sing more.
The Swons are swinning, and Grace bowed out as the loser of this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Josiah Hawley Vs Jess Kellner
Josiah Hawley’s Song Choice was: Back To Black
Jess Kellner’s Song Choice was: You Give Me Something
I understand that this song had emotional attachment for Jess, but wow was I so not feeling it. Josiah was the better singer, and performer here!
Josiah won, and Jess lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Audrey Karrasch Vs Michelle Chamuel
Audrey Karrasch’s Song Choice was: How to Love
Michelle Chamuel’s Song Choice was: Raise Your Glass
I know Michelle is on my team and everything, but I wasn’t impressed with either song at all.
michelle won, and Audrey lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: C. Perkins Vs VEDO
C Perkins’ Song Choice was: She Ain’t You
VEDO’s Song Choice was: (Everything I Do) I Do It For You
I gotta give it to VEDO here, his song choice fit him so well. Especially with his mom watching from Heaven. I really enjoyed his singing, and I thought that was something I’d never say or type. C. Perkins just didn’t do anything for me at all.
VEDO won, and C. Perkins lost this knockout.

A Knockout Between: Cathia Vs Ryan Innes
Cathia’s Song Choice was: Mr. Know It All
Ryan Innes’s Song Choice was: I Don’t Wanna Be
I understand Ryan went too high, and couldn’t recover, but I still think he was better then Cat-tea-ah. She sucks in both English and Spanish singing, at least in my opinion.
Cathia won, and Ryan lost this knockout.

Knockouts Week Final Thoughts:
The knockouts weren’t as enraging for me as the battles were. Sure there were performers that I wanting to stay, but I get that it is win or go home. I think that with the teams the coaches have now, that it will be very interesting to see what happens in the live playoffs.

The Live Playoffs Are Coming!
