The Voice season 13 continues Monday night (Dec 4) as The Top 10 take the stage for your votes.
In last week’s power list, I had Janice Freeman ranked fourth! And now she’s gone. Up until her untimely demise, I believed she had a shot for the final. But as some of you pointed older, female singers often struggle on singing shows. are often cut early.
Here’s how I rank the Top 10. How would you rate them? Reminder: This week, the Bottom 3 contestants sing for the insta-save. TWO will be eliminated.
- Chloe Kohanski – Team Blake – There are better vocalists remaining in the competition (Keisha, Brooke, Davon), but Chloe’s ability to connect to a song and convey emotion has made her a fan and iTunes favorite.
- Addison Agen – Team Adam – And right behind Chloe is sixteen year old Addison. With her beautiful tone and mature phrasing, she makes every song she sings her own. At the moment, she’s running neck-in-neck with her fellow indie singer, Chloe
- Red Marlow – Team Blake – Red was the other singer, besides Chloe and Addison to hit the iTunes Top 10. There are more original and skilled vocalists in this bunch. But being a country singer on Team Blake Shelton brings an automatic fan base. He’ll probably make the final.
- Noah Mac – Team Jennifer – Right now, Noah is my personal favorite. His musicality and ability to arrange stunning covers should have him sailing into the final. But he may land a bit too far on the quirky side. If Noah tackles a hit song this week and nails it, his single could end up in the iTunes Top 10. Where it belongs.
- Keisha Renee – Team Blake – I expect Keisha to make it to at least next week’s bloodbath. Heck, if she pulls off a great song in at the right time, she might even make the final. Choosing to cover country songs with Blake Shelton as her coach was a shrewd decision, setting her apart from the rest of the season’s R&B singers.
- Shi’Ann Jones – Team Jennifer – Fifteen year old Shi’Ann Jones is a gifted vocalist a few years away from being ready for competition. Regardless, she has people! She doesn’t rank high on iTunes. Her performances are flawed. And she sings early in the lineup. Still, she manages to avoid the bottom 2. That’s why, once again, I’m ranking Shi’Ann No. 6.
- Brooke Simpson Team Miley – Brooke’s strong clear tone and amazing range are impressive. But somehow, her personality isn’t coming through on TV? And by all accounts, she’s warm and funny behind the scenes. Her social media game is on point too. It may be enough to carry her through at least to the blood bath.
- Davon Fleming – Team Jennifer – Davon’s gift is putting his own spin on big female diva songs. It’s working out pretty well for him so far. But can flipping female R&B songs carry him to the final? Maybe it’s time to break out a big old fashioned gospel tune.
- Ashland Craft – Team Miley – I don’t like the songs Miley is choosing for Ashland. Or maybe I’m just not digging Ashland’s vibe. Her raspy tone and range are pretty great. But I’d appreciate her more is she went in a singer/songwriter direction, rather than country corn. Regardless, she must be doing something right, considering she’s avoided the bottom so far. Her luck, however, may run out this week.
- Adam Cunningham – Team Adam – Adam will probably land in the bottom again, and with two leaving the competition on Tuesday, his third third time in the bottom may be his last.
Join us tonight at 8 pm ET when The Top 10 perform on The Voice, airing live on NBC.
