TO VOTE IN THE INSTANT SAVE: NO MORE TWITTER. Vote via The Voice Official Phone App or Online via nbc.om/VoiceSave.
Cali Wilson – The Chain by Fleetwood Mac – She starts off seeming defeated, but becomes more and more defiant as the performance progresses. Her voice cracks a bunch. She should have displayed that kind of fire last night. I’m not surprised she hit the bottom. I love her tone, but her performance last night was so laid back, it was snoozy. There was no way to make a mark with that performance. John loved the fire behind the song choice. Blake is sure his decisions were correct. Her performance proves she deserves to stay, he says.
Max Boyle – Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran – Hm. Like last night, he’s having some pitch problems. It’s a jittery performance. John calls him a gifted and tasteful singer. Kelly is SUPER SHOCKED. Take it as an opportunity, she says. PLEASE AMERICA VOTE MAX! She pleads.
Joana Martinez – Superwoman by Alicia Keys – Joana is back in her element tonight. She’s performing last and delivering a solid performance. She may have this. John loves her big powerful range. Gwen calls her performance mind blowing. “She is so fearless at her age,” says Gwen. “I am so honored to be your coach.”
Yep. Joana has this.
Cali tells Blake that being mentored by him was a dream. He helped her confidence. Max calls Kelly “so cool.” YOU’RE NOT LEAVING! Kelly yells. Bad news Kel. Yes he is. Joana thanks both Gwen and Blake for being awesome coaches. Blake implores Cali to stick with it. He promises she’s doing “what you were born to do.” Kelly says again, she’s shocked Max is in the bottom. She would die to do a duet with him. She invites him to perform with her at her upcoming Las Vegas residency! I bet she follows up on that! Gwen calls Joana “mind blowing.” and says “I need to get your autograph.” She considers Joana her and Blake’s “little girl.”
America INSTANTLY SAVED. Joana Martinez. Cali Wilson and Max Boyle are ELIMINATED.
Next week is Fan Week.
Dang. Max Boyle was my favorite and he is no more. He oversang last night, but his performance had its moments. I’m scratching my head over Shane Q not landing in the Bottom 3. I wonder if Kelly’s big pep talk and freaking out cause OMG YOU KEPT YOUR EYES OPEN (whoopdee do) transformed him into an underdog. But I gotta say. Joana Martinez did what she had to do in that instant save. Her performance WAS the best of the three. Max should have performed a big emotional ballad. Don’t sing easy peasy pop songs when your LIFE is on the line…
