Tonight on “The Voice,” we had what was easily the most crowded show in the history of the franchise through 11 seasons. Because of the Presidential election, we were forced into a situation where the entirety of the Live Playoffs were shoved into one night, and the coaches didn’t have much of an opportunity to share any feedback.
Take a look below at our taken on some of the performances from Team Adam, who were the final group to have a chance to hit the stage tonight.
Brendan Fletcher – We’ve thought for most of the season that he’s been a little bit forgettable, but we did really enjoy what he brought to this vocally. The problem is that the show gave him one of the most-forgettable placements, so we felt that ultimately, that did not bode well for his future.
Simone Gundy – She did as much with “Diamonds” as she possibly could given that this song is really hard to do on a singing show with a cut-off run time.
Josh Halverson – This was good, but after hearing Austin Allsup and Sundance Head, not to mention seeing the two advance to the next round, we really didn’t feel any need or interest in getting another country singer in there. How many of them do we really need? Our answer: Not this many.
Riley Elmore – Riley took on a Frank Sinatra performance that could’ve felt a whole lot like karaoke, and he NAILED it vocally. We do think he needs the stage presence to match the voice, but with time he could get there.
Billy Gilman – No surprise that Billy gets the pimp spot tonight given the attention that’s been given to him.
Results – Well, this was somewhat predictable: America saved the country singer in Josh and the former country singer in Billy; meanwhile, Adam himself saved Brendan. These three were deserving, but we do think Riley had a ton of upside.
