Tonight (May 14) The Voice Top 8 will become a Top 4.  Now that viewers have voted for their favorites, 3 will automatically advance to the finals. The bottom 2 will be automatically eliminated. Singers in 4th, 5th and 6th place will sing for the Instant Save. Coaches Kelly Clarkson and John Legend, who have one and two team members remaining, respectively, hope to advance a singer in the finals. Blake Shelton with 5 team members in the Top 8 is likely not sweating it. Adam Levine, who lost all his team members in the Cross Battles, probably could have stayed home!

  8. Kim Cherry – Team Blake Shelton 1.96%

Which 5 singers SHOULD Advance to the Top 4? (Choose 4)

The SHOULD poll: Both Rod and Shawn along with Dexter and Maelyn. That sounds about right to me.

  2. Dexter Roberts – Team Blake Shelton 18.41%
  3. Rod Stokes – Team Kelly Clarkson 17.61%

The Voice Season 18 Top 8 – Grade the Episode

You all graded last night’s episode a B-. 

  • B 44.44%
  • C 30.56%
  • A 12.15%
  • D 6.6%
  • F 6.25%

Prediction: Maelyn Jarmon, Dexter Roberts and Gyth Rigdon automatically advance to the finals. Rod Stokes, Shawn Sounds and Andrew Sevener battle for the fourth spot. Either Rod or Shawn win it. I’m going to pick Rod. But I won’t be surprised if Shawn nabs it. Kim Cherry and Carter Lloyd Horne are eliminated.
