The Voice finals continue tonight (May 7) with the Top 10 and here’s a quick power list of where I believe the contestants stand right now. After the contestants sing, TWO contestants will be sent home on Tuesday night.
10. Christiana Danielle – Team Alicia Keys – Christiana landed in the bottom 2 last week. She was lucky to be up against Sharane Calister– a weak Instant Save opponent. While her jazzy arrangements are daring, they don’t always work. With two singers going home this week, she’ll have to step it up to stick around.
9. Rayshun Lamarr – Team Adam Levine – Rayshun has been in the bottom two before, and with the competition heating up, he could land there again.
8. Jackie Verna – Team Adam Levine – Jackie’s performances have been inconsistent throughout the competition. Her survival this week depends on choosing the right song to highlight her delicate country twang.
7. Jackie Foster – Team Alicia Keys – As this season’s big voiced rocker girl, Jackie is riding in her own land. She should make it into next week’s bloodbath if she chooses her song well.
6. Kaleb Lee – Team Kelly Clarkson – Kaleb is a decent country crooner, but his performances are mostly unremarkable. Last week, he performed an upbeat Travis Tritt song, T-R-O-U-B-L-E and barely worked the stage. Having said that, as a male country singer, he’ll probably be safe this week.
5. Kyla Jade – Team Blake Shelton – Kyla consistently delivers great performances of soul classics, but she’s a very old fashioned singer. I can’t imagine her making it past next week’s blood bath.
4. Spensha Baker – Team Blake Shelton – Spensha closed last week’s show with a spectacular rendition of Little Big Town’s “Better Man.” If I had my way, she’d make the final.
3. Brynn Cartelli – Team Kelly Clarkson – Barely 15 years old, Brynn could make Kelly Clarkson a first time winner. She didn’t hit the Top 10 last week with Britton and Pryor, but host Carson Daly mentioned that her cover of “You and I” was most streamed of all the Top 11 performances.
2. Britton Buchanan – Team Alicia Keys – Young Britton is a compelling vocalist who commands the stage. It’s hard to imagine the finals without him.
1. Pryor Baird – Team Blake Shelton – Pryor rose to the top of the iTunes chart last week with a Bob Seeger classic. As a retro southern rocker and Team Blake member, he seems to be a sure thing for the finals.
