On tonight’s episode of The Voice, we were blessed by an appearance from this week’s mentor, Shania Twain. (She even got her own chair during the show!) Tonight we also got to watch performances from the Top 12 as the battle it out for the viewers votes for the results show tomorrow night!
First up tonight we have Jesse Larson, from Team Adam, performing “Make You Feel My Love.”
It is such a vulnerable and amazing performance. This is definitely the type of music that Jesse should be singing; not that he can’t sing more upbeat songs, because he has definitely proven that he can do that as well.
Next up, also from Team Adam, we have Mark Isaiah performing “One Dance.”
I am actually really digging this rendition of the song, and love that Mark made it his own. Adam shares that even though he knew what Mark was performing tonight, he was still blown away by it.
From Team Alicia, we have Stephanie Rice performing “White Flag.”
Alicia saved Stephanie last week during the live playoffs, and it was a decision that I do not completely agree with, and this performance just kind of added to that. There are moments in the song that were great, but the performance as a whole, I was not blown away by. But Shania Twain seemed to love it, so maybe it’s different actually hearing it live.
Troy Ramey, from Team Gwen is up next performing “Free Fallin’.”
The first few notes of the song I felt were a little too low, but as the song progressed, the performance got better. This rendition of the song is something that we are not completely used to, but it was beautifully sung.
Next up is Aliyah Moulden, from Team Blake, performing “Heat Wave.”
For someone so young, Aliyah has such a strong and powerful voice. I absolutely love watching her perform. Coach Blake and Shania give her a standing ovation at the end of the performance.
Chris Blue, from Team Alicia, is next performing “Love and Happiness.”
Overall, it is a great performance. Chris continuously performs with so much energy during every single song and it is so fun to watch.
Lauren Duski is next, from Team Blake, performing “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good.”
I really enjoyed Lauren’s performance last week, and this week is no different. She continues to impress the coaches and the viewers with each of her performances. She is a must for next week.
Up next, from Team Adam, we have Lilli Passero, who was given the task to perform “Man, I Feel Like a Woman”
I was really hoping that someone would perform a Shania Twain song, and it is crazy that Adam picked Lilli to be that person. Truthfully, I was not totally impressed by this performance. It was good, but it could have been a lot better. I think that Lauren ,or even Brennley,might have been a better choice to sing a Shania Twain song.
From Team Gwen, we have Brennley Brown, performing “Long, Long Time.”
Brennley continues to surprise me every week with her performances. This was one of my favorites from tonight. Shania praised her for how much emotion she put into the performance.
TSoul, from Team Blake, is next performing “Always on my Mind.”
It was a great performance from TSoul, and Blake shared that he was a proud coach after this performance. It’s cool to see TSoul perform something completely different from last week’s performance and still perform it so effortlessly.
Next, from Team Gwen, is Hunter Plake performing “Somebody That I Used to Know.”
Hunter definitely put his own spin into this song, and I actually kind of like it. It matches his style, and he sang it really good. I was impressed, and the coaches were too.
The final performance of the night goes to Vanessa Ferguson, from Team Alicia, performing “A Song For You.”
Another great performance to end the show. I do not think that Vanessa gets enough praise, I am very impressed by how effortlessly she sings these songs week after week. It would be great to see her back next week.
That’s it for the Top 12 performances!
Be sure to vote for your favorites as one artist will be eliminated tomorrow night!
