The Voice season 21 continues with LIVE shows. On Monday (Nov 29), the Top 10 performed for viewer votes (Read our Recap). Tomorrow night (Nov 30), 7 acts will be declared safe. Then, the bottom 3 vote getters will perform for the Instant Save wildcard. The winner joins the The Top 7 to make a Top 8, which will move on to next week’s competition.
Tonight ended up an interesting night of performances, with singers performing songs outside of their typical genres. Artists took risks that didn’t always pay off. Some didn’t really take risks at all.

Holly Forbes bravely dove into a disco number. Vocally, she was up to the challenge. But her out of the box song choice may confuse some fans. Plus, she performed first. She could be in trouble this week. Plus, it dawned on me this week that Jim & Sasha Allen are clearly Ariana’s favorites. It’s evident in how she interacts with the duo. SHE LOVES THEM. She’s constantly crying over the duo. This, despite Holly singing rings around them every week. Holly came into the competition a front runner, but not any more.
Kelly Clarkson wanted to push Jeremy Rosado out of his comfort zone. But I’m not convinced his uptempo song choice helped him this week. He loves ballads…and so does The Voice audience. He also could wind up in the bottom 3.
Jershika Maple did a great job with covering Paramore–a pop/rock song way outside of what she’s used to signing. Wendy Moten stayed in familiar country territory, but she performed a masterful take on Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” And that’s with a bunch of broken bones after a nasty fall last week. She’s in it to win it, clearly.
The studio performance of “Viva La Vida” by Girl Named Tom is sublime. Listen now if you haven’t already. But while their harmonies were beautiful, the trio had pitch problems during their solos. That Coldplay song is deceptively hard to sing live.
Lana Scott didn’t take any huge risks this week, but she acquitted herself well contrifying a Katy Perry song for Team Blake. She’s sticking around this week. Joshua Vacanti, Paris Winningham and Hailey Mia also delivered fan-pleasing performances.
