The Voice season 13 Live Finals kicked off Monday night (Nov 19). Thirteen finalists took the stage for YOUR votes. Which ones were your favorites? It’s time to vote in the POLLS!.
Actually, there wasn’t one performance that totally blew me away tonight. And if I’m being honest–I don’t have a favorite contestant yet. The performances that seemed to really stand out were from Kirk Jay, Sarah Grace, MacKenzie Thomas and Kennedy Holmes. Kymberli Joye was a personal favorite.
I am intrigued and impressed by Sarah Grace’s musicality and look forward to more from her. I appreciate Chris Kroeze’s versatility. And I hope Comeback Stage artist Lynnea Moore sticks around for a bit so we can get to know her.
I love the beginning of the finals when there’s so much music, the coaches barely have time to speak afterward. Heh.
I wonder if the viewing audience will understand that the rules have changed and they need to stream Apple Music to vote, rather than download. Not counting downloads is dumb and will keep songs from charting high. Watching the charts is half the fun of performance night! But I suspect that The Voice cut some type of deal with Apple to promote Apple Music. Downloads are quickly making way for streams. I can’t even remember the last time I downloaded a song. Buying CDs is ancient history.
NOTE: The online Vote Window closes at 7 am ET. The iTunes voting window closes at 9 am. 30 seconds of a song counts as a FULL STREAM. And instead of the Top 10 chart bonus, this season the MOST STREAMED ARTIST OF THE NIGHT will have their stream totals multiplied by 5.
Anyway. Here are the chart standings at 5 am:
13. Kirk Jay – I’m Already There
22. Tyke James – Everything I Do I Do For You (!!!)
26. Reagan Strange – You Say
38. Chevel Shepherd – Little White Church
61. Chris Kroeze – Let it Be
84. Kennedy Holmes – Wind Beneath My Wings
118. Sarah Grace – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
147. Deandre Nico – I Can Only Imagine
(The rest charted outside the Top 200)
