The Voice 3 – The Final Top 3 – iTunes Rankings, Poll Results, Predictions!

The Voice voting methodology changes a little for final, and it’s a tad bit confusing.

The iTunes voting procedures have been altered. There will be NO iTunes bonus for contestants who hit the Top 10. BUT, EVERY iTUNES VOTE FROM THE LIVE ROUNDS INCLUDING PRIOR BONUSES will count as votes. EVERY song you download from a finalist (up to 10 votes for each eligible song) will count as a vote for your contestant:

For the sake of clarity, the Cumulative iTunes Vote Total will include iTunes downloads of eligible songs from the live performance episodes, up to a limit of ten (10) downloads per eligible song per valid iTunes account, beginning at the opening of the voting window for the November 12 episode and continuing until the close of the voting window for the finale, and will include downloads occurring during and outside the applicable voting windows for the performance episodes airing on November 12 through December 17, 2012.

You got that? You can read more at The Voice Online.

Here are this week’s iTunes rankings, including songs from prior weeks, since they count:

Top 12 iTunes Rankings (All Songs in the Top 100)

1. Cassadee Pope – Cry
5.  Terry McDermott – Broken Wing
6. Cassadee Pope – Over You
12. Terry McDermott – I Want to Know What Love Is
14. Nicholas David – Great Balls of Fire/Fire
24. Cassadee Pope – Stupid Boy
29. Terry McDermott and Blake Shelton – Dude Looks Like a Lady
35. Nicholas David and Cee Lo Green – Play that Funky Music White Boy
38. Blake Shelton and Cassadee Pope – Steve McQueen
43. Nicholas David – Lean on Me
73. Terry McDermott – Let it Be

Cassadee – 4 songs Top 100, 3 songs Top 25, 2 songs Top 10, 1 song Top 4
Terry – 4 songs Top 100, 2 songs Top 25, 2 songs Top 10, 0 songs Top 4
Nicholas – 3 songs Top 100, 1 song Top 25, 0 songs Top 10, 0 songs Top 4

Cassadee outranks everyone as far as iTunes is concerned. If iTunes counts for a significant portion of the votes, or if the vote totals are close, Cassadee’s iTunes dominance could win her the crown over Terry. I don’t even think Nicholas is a factor.

Check out the rough estimate from prior weeks.  I’m not counting recurrents here–ie songs from prior weeks that stayed high on the charts. I suspect Cassadee prevailed there as well.

Look. Cassadee is at the top of the favorite performance list…and at the bottom. Her “Steve McQueen” performance with Blake only ranked at 38. No matter, her iTunes ranking overall have been dominant. I think she’s in an excellent position to take it all tonight. If Terry wins, we’ll know it was due to the Power of the Penis…
