Moving into tonight’s The Voice results show, it is pretty clear that two artists are both sitting pretty.
New The Voice video! – Be sure to check out our take on last night’s performance show in the video at the bottom of this article! Remember that if you do want more information, you can subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube. Meanwhile, be sure to check out our full The Voice playlist for more.
The official iTunes results are now in from overnight, and they do give us an inkling as to what many voters out there liked in terms of performances. For more, look below…
Likely Safe – You have to include Kirk Jay and Sarah Grace here above the pack. They both currently have songs in the top 5 (as of around noon Pacific time) and, to go along with that, their performances were extremely well-received. While we know that Sarah’s take on “Amazing Grace” was reasonably controversial, we found it to be fantastic and also feel like it’s a good road map for other contestants. If you want to do well on this show, do original arrangements of songs. Viewers are almost always going to prefer these when they are looking to add to their iTunes collection.
We’re also going to go ahead and throw in here MaKenzie Thomas as someone else who is probably feeling good about moving forward. Her Celine Dion cover is in the top 20, and when you consider that she also closed out the show, there’s another reason for confidence with her.
Reasonably safe – Let’s look here at Kymberli Joye and Chevel Shepherd here first, given that their two covers were both within the top 30. It’s hard to imagine at this point that they’d be going home when there are still ten people left, but in this category we don’t like to offer up too many assurances.
We’re also going to throw in here Kennedy Holmes, whose “Me Too” is currently sitting at #48. Upbeat songs from The Voice rarely dominate iTunes, so this is good placement, all things considered. We also think that her dance moves and general personality still make this a winning performance.
In danger – There are four artists we see facing some trouble tonight — Dave Fenley (currently at #51), Chris Kroeze (#64), and then both DeAndre Nico and Reagan Strange outside the top 100. What’s strange about Reagan (pun intended) is that she’s done really well in streams, but not anywhere near as strong on iTunes. DeAndre’s likely in the most danger because he’s needed the #VoiceSave before; if we had to pick two artists who will likely be heading home tonight, we’ll say DeAndre and Dave. While Dave did perform better on iTunes than the other three, we could see Reagan or Chris outperforming him in a #VoiceSave competition.
