NBC’s ‘The Voice’ rankings: Michelle Chamuel passes Danielle Bradbery

The VoiceFor the first time since the second week of the live shows on “The Voice,” we have a shake-up at the top of the charts. Thanks to a certain contestant with glasses and her social media-savvy mentor, someone new is now topping our contestant rankings. Granted, we also have to add that this is in no way a definitive list right about now, because things can and typically do change when it comes to this show at the drop of a hat. One great performance on Monday by someone else, and we could be looking at a very different chart come next weekend.

What are we basing our analysis of the final five on? It’s really a series of things. Performance quality is once again at the top of the list, since a stellar performance will make-or-break you in this competition. However, you also have to remember that coaches have fans, and your history and personality are going to win you over people to go along with it.

5. Sasha Allen (last week: 6) – Sasha had a pretty good week. Unfortunately, we still see her on the outside looking in. Her body of work has the weakest iTunes sales of the remaining acts, and while she has stepped it up as of late, the early stages of the live shows found her around the middle of the pack.

4. The Swon Brothers (3) – If we’re being honest, have the Swon boys really been that great ever since their George Jones tribute? They’ve definitely dealt with a lot this season courtesy of what happened in their home state of Oklahoma, but we really cannot sit here and say that they are more deserving of making the top three than any of the artists we have listed.

3. Amber Carrington (4) – Amber’s success is somewhat hampered by the sole fact that there are two other country artists in the top four. But what Adam Levine has done really well with her is prove time and time again that you do not need to just sing traditional country songs to be a powerful country artists, and it has at least differentiated her long enough for her to still be in this competition.

2. Danielle Bradbery (1) – This is where the competition gets interesting to us since we think that Danielle and Michelle are the two best singers on the show by a pretty wide margin. While she’s finally not #1 on the list, we still think that she has the most-popular coach in Blake Shelton, and it will take an Olympic effort by Michelle to keep her from winning.

1. Michelle Chamuel (2) – Luckily for Michelle, she’s putting in the effort. Usher did a very smart thing in getting Taylor Swift on board to support her, and her “I Knew You Were Trouble” remains one of the most-memorable performances of the entire season. If she can continue to perform so effortlessly, and show off every side of her personality, she’s got a great shot at this.
