bring tuesday sound Season 22’s top 16 results reveal — the first live results reveal of the season — featured few surprises in the first half of the episode. In fact, if I may gloat about it, I correctly predicted 10 of the top 12 contestants, although the John Legend team voted in a slightly different order.
It wasn’t until the time came to fill the last spot in the top 13 – singled out among the remaining four contestants via a real-time, public vote instant save – that it became unpredictable.
So, at the start of the night, host Carson Daly explained that based on Monday’s top-16 performance, two vote-getters from each team would advance, after which each coach would save a third artist.For Team Blake, America voted for alternative singer-songwriter Bodie and country heartthrob Brayden Rapp, as I expected, though when Blake Shelton then chose to save teen pop star Rowan Grace instead It’s kind of surprising when it’s not “directly in the middle” of country singer Bryce Leatherwood, who Blake had been so Definitely going into the top 13. But Blake revealed that he strategically made that decision based on “who already passed,” so he probably thought Bryce and Braden would cancel each other out in future votes. Or, maybe, just maybe, Blake is simply convinced that (spoiler alert) Bryce can win an instant save.
For Team Legend, America voted right with well-deserved teen diva Parijita Bastola (as I predicted) and rock performer Omar José Cardona (John was right about that result; I was wrong). John then saves “The Velvet Powerhouse”, Kim Cruse of course – since I assume America will vote for Kim’s dynamite Aretha Franklin cover, Team Legend’s top three lineup basically ends up as I predicted.
As for Team Gwen, Americans voted for new-school song designer Kiqué (who seemed shocked, but of course I wasn’t) and old-school soul musician Justin Aaron, as I said. When Gwen Stefani rescued her beloved mini-me “muffins,” it was no surprise that 19-year-old pop star Alyssa Witrado — despite her recent Stolen contestant Kevin Hawkins, with whom she clearly has a less-than-solid relationship, had a stronger vocal performance on Monday.
All that’s left is new coach Camila Cabello and her team.America (and I) chose country rock badass Morgan Myles and cool cat Devix, and rightly so, though I’m glad (and not surprised) that Camila saved Dynamite performer Eric Who, aka self-proclaimed star eric of the showMy heart goes out to former frontrunner Kate Kalvach whose performance on Monday was derailed by technical issues that were in no way her fault and handled like a true pro .
But it’s not over for Kate — or for Bryce, Kevin or Legends’ Sasha Hurtado — as they sing about redemption and a top-13 wildcard position, they’re all in Sing a tune of your choice. I think Bryce’s choice of “Let Me Take It Easy”—a Billy Clinton song rather than a Chris Isaac song, which would have been more interesting—was an odd choice for a song that saved me. It’s hardly a vocal display, and the mood is almost defeatist, as if he’s looking forward to coming home.I think this, combined with the fact that he sang in unfavorable first place, means that Bryce Will go home. but(spoiler alert) I should never underestimate the show’s loyal country/Blake fan base. “I don’t feel too much pressure on putting Bryce in this situation,” Blake asserted.
Sasha’s cover of Sia’s “Elastic Heart” is a great battle song, and her trainer John told her, “I love that you chose this song about resilience!” It was a tricky song, very long, and Sasha It was obviously hard to keep up at times, but as her confidence grew, she really made it at the end. It may not have been enough to save Sasha from being eliminated, but John praised her for “never being afraid of the moment – you always come out.”
So it seems like it’s all going to come down to Kevin and Kate.it seem Anyway, that.
Kevin’s choice to do Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” was a risky one, even though it’s on-brand…but man, did he ever pull it off! It was the most exciting performance of the night, the whole vibe.obviously kevin really wantedThis win, he’s getting deeper and deeper into the groove as he uses his nimble falsetto and draws crowds like a real star. The crowd loved it, and even all four coaches gave him a standing ovation. “Wow, the room is explode’ exclaims Gwen, who must have guessed in hindsight that she decided to save the undercooked Alyssa instead of the seasoned Kevin. “That’s incredible. Everyone is blown away by you. I can’t even talk, it’s so loud in here now! “
Kate came last – the best instant save position in history – although Miley Cyrus’ 2010 film theme “When I Look at You” might not have been the best fight song choice, and Kate’s performance wasn’t as good as Kevin’s As bold or fiery, there was no doubt that Kate had the best voice of the night. With a crisp and melodious tone, this time, her redemption performance was done in one go. “Kate, my God! Everyone is freaking out. I’m choked up. Everyone Choked up,” Camilla gushed. “You’ve got one of the best voices you’ve had all season. Later, Camilla even declared that Kate has “one of my favorite voices.”
But obviously the United States disagrees, and domestic voters “stand directly in the middle” to support… Of course, Bryce. Bryce was actually the weakest of the four, but that kind of disappointment seems to happen every season on Blake’s teams; maybe this one wasn’t so unpredictable after all.With Blake gone, it will be interesting to see if the average country singer does as well and makes it through with ease sound After season 23.
But in the meantime, the top 13 contestants from season 22 — including Bryce — will be competing again next Monday. See you later.
