Tonight on The Voice finale, we’re getting a chance to hear all of the final four contestants perform their original songs on live TV! These are songs that hopefully there will be a lot of support for, especially since we’re really pulling for one of them to actually become something big.
For the sake of this article, we’re talking about Maelyn Jarmon and her original song entitled “Wait For You.” We know that she is the favorite to potentially win the whole season at the end of the day, and this is the sort of performance that could either help her get there or cause her a little bit of a setback. We’re going to be basing this article off of some of what we’ve heard in our official iTunes recording.

One of the first things that is striking about ‘Wait for You” as a song is that it has such a striking, contemporary rock/pop sounds. We were expecting Maelyn to be almost a little bit more of Sara Bareilles than Florence Welch, but there is something about her sound here that is enchanting. She’s got some great runs in the chorus, and this doesn’t sound exactly like anything that is on the radio right now.
Perhaps the thing that we’re the most excited about here, though, is that this actually feels like something different and with that, something refreshing. That’s been a lot of her performances all season, and we also like that this song is a little bit upbeat given that she has done a lot of ballads this season. This will stand out a little bit more in her musical repertoire because of that and we’re certainly stoked to see what she does after the show because of this.
Will Maelyn win The Voice with this?
We do think that she’s got a great choice of pulling that off, but one of the things that she’s gotta watch out for is simply that a lot of Team Blake’s people are likely to vote towards a single candidate in order for them to be the champion. That is a pretty steep mountain to climb and it’s something that she probably should be aware of through the finale results tomorrow night. Maelyn has a lot going for her in terms of a great voice and an ability to connect with a song, and while we think that she really should win, we don’t want to forget here that we’ve seen plenty of finales on The Voice already where the right person doesn’t necessarily win.
