The Voice season 11 LIVE finals continue on Monday. And here is another power list! I’ve ranked all 11 finalists from Team Adam Levine, Team Alicia Keys, Team Miley Cyrus and Team Blake Shelton according to their relative strength at this stage of the game. Also, check out the photo gallery at the end of the post.
11. Aaron Gibson – Team Miley – Aaron laid a dud last week with an obscure Father John Misty cover. He’s going to have to step it up this week in order to stick around. Unfortunately for him he’s competing against similar singers, Brendan Fletcher and Austin Allsup.
10. Courtney Harrell – Team Blake – Other than “River Deep Mountain High” in the Knockouts, Courtney has not managed to distinguish herself from the pack. I’ll be surprised if she makes it to the semifinals.
9. Darby Walker – Team Miley – Miley! Viewers don’t seem to be buying the mini-mi routine you’ve got going with Darby Walker. Maybe allow the young singer to be herself?
8. Austin Allsup – Team Blake – Austin’s odd southern rock take on an Aretha Franklin song last week, the singer is one of the season’s best performers. Outstanding performances could land him higher on the list in the coming weeks.
7. Sundance Head – Team Blake – This former American Idol contestant has one of the best voices in the competition and is also an entertaining performer.
6. Josh Gallagher – Team Adam – Josh has the kind of emotional, pop country voice that typically does really really well on The Voice. He could be a dark horse.
5. Brendan Fletcher – Team Adam – Brendan flew under the radar in the early rounds, but seems to be coming into his own during the lives. If Brendan keeps up the momentum, he has a shot at the finals.
4. Christian Cuevas – Team Alicia – When Christian emotionally connects to a song, like he did on “Superstar” a few weeks ago, he’s very very good. Otherwise, he’s cornball city. Dig deep Christian.
3. Billy Gilman – Team Adam – Billy has an AMAZING vocal range…that he relies on way too much. Yes Billy. We get that you can hit the high notes. But show us subtle too. You may want to study a few of Adam Lambert’s American Idol performances.
2. Wé McDonald – Team Alicia – Wé’s burnished alto is unlike anything we’ve every heard on The Voice before. She’s definitely a contender to win.
1. Ali Caldwell – Team Miley – Ali gets this week’s #1 spot after last week’s incredible performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Did I Ever Love You.” She has recently emerged as a true contender.
Join us tonight for The Voice 11 Top 12 performances beginning at 8 pm ET. Right here.
