This week was the Top 12 Live Performances, and then the results from that. I do have to say that I’m losing interest in Season 4 of The Voice. Last year I was gung ho with every new show. However this year I find myself watching the show after it airs and online at NBC’s website. I dunno what it is, but as S4 continues on I’m just not into it. Below are the Top 12 Performances and Results with my opinions on each.
There were several non competition performances, you can find them below as well.
Robin Thicke Feat T.I. and Pharrell – Blurred Lines
Blake along with his team sang Play Something Country
Lady Antebellum – Goodbye Town
Adam along with his team sang Lovesong
Top 12 Live Performances:
Sarah Simmons sang The Story
Even though I’ve never heard the song before, I liked Sarah’s performance of it. I find it very interesting as to the song choices that are given to her. Sometimes in the case of Angel I think wow that really fits her, and in other cases I think… hmmmm strange song choice.
Judith Hill sang You’ve Got A Friend
This song fits judith’s voice like a glove, and it was just such a powerful performance. I absolutely loved it. As was stated in the latest GCR Special, I’m beggining to think that judith is hit or miss. Of course as always depending on the song choices.
Amber Carrington sang I’m Gonna Love You Through It
I found that Amber was screaming a little too much. That along with the fact that I’m not familiar with the song prevented me from really enjoying this performance.
Holly Tucker sang A Broken Wing
WOW Holly keeps knockin’ em right outta the park!!!! Loved the performance, and she’s just amazing!!!!
The Swon Brothers sang Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes
The Swons hit their stride here. Granted I love their rendition of Drift Away, but the point of a duo is they both sing. I found that they accomplished this here.
Danielle Bradberry sang Wasted
People better watch out for Danielle she most likely will take this thing all the way. The one thing I’ll say that I don’t much care for is how Carson stresses everytime that SHE IS THE YOUNGEST PERSON IN THE COMPETITION…. we get it she’s only 16. Shut up about that already.
Garrett Gardner sang I Want It That Way
Shakira sent Garrett to his execution! While I enjoyed the rock performance of a BSB song, there were soooo many other songs that Shakira could have chosen for him to sing. So that he could show off his diversity and all that.
Kris Thomas sang I’ll Be There
Meh, Kris did a good job, but I just wasn’t feeling it.
Sasha Allen sang Alone
So does this song have some sort of emotional connection for Sasha? She sang it wonderfully, except the fact of the entire performance she was either crying or about to burst into tears. You can’t sing well with salty tears sliding down your face can you?
Josiah Hawley sang The Man Who Can’t Be Moved
Again I just wasn’t into the song. Josiah can sing don’t get me wrong, but I just wasn’t feeling it with this performance.
VEDO sang Rock With You
This actually started the night off… and no, just no… Bye Bye VEDO go back to whereever it is you came from. Because lets face it you are no Usher or michael Jackson.
Michelle Chamuel sang Call Your Girlfriend
Michelle’s songs are just like Judith’s for me… One week she can be amazing and another week she can just be meh. This was a meh week for me.
On Results night there were moments of meh and outrage! I’ll say right now I wasn’t actively voting up until 10am eastern Tuesday morning. I voted for the following artists by phone, on Facebook, and on the NBC Website. Sasha, Garrett, Holly, Amber, Kris, and Danielle.
As the night went on I had a bit of dread in my heart, because Carson would never say Garrett’s name as being saved. Sadly this came true, because at the end of the night Garrett was one of the two eliminated. The other one was VEDO, and I’m fine with that. I just feel all kinds of disconnected wit The Voice Season 4. As stated above there isn’t the excitement for me, as there was in Season 3.
