‘The Voice’s “The Comeback Stage” Finale Recap
The time has come! With the Live Shows on the horizon, the end of The Voice‘s digital companion series, “The Comeback Stage” is here. In the Finale, the three remaining artists will be fighting for the final two spots. Fifth coach Kelsea Ballerini will be choosing these finalists. Then, the two finalists will compete for a spot in the Live Shows! The winner gets to join the team of their choice in the Top 13.
But who will have a chance to come back? Watch here for “The Comeback Stage” Finale, where Kelsea chooses the final two artists:
Lynnea chose “In My Blood” by Shawn Mendes for her Finale song on “The Comeback Stage.” While the first clip scared me, she more than made up for it at the end of her rehearsal. Kelsea complimented the “tenderness” she sang with but encouraged her to keep that throughout the whole song. When it came to her performance, she sounded vulnerable but strong. Lynnea is clearly talented and made the song her own without losing the melody. She also brought the emotion this time around! Such a different vibe than her original Blind Audition. Kelsea complimented her, saying “that was beautiful!”
Wyatt was up next! Kelsea started by taking his mic stand away in the rehearsal, saying he needed to “not think about what [his] body is doing.” For this performance, Wyatt is singing Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is.” Kelsea was clearly feeling his song choice, dancing along to the beat. His movements looked awkward and forced to me. And his voice is not strong enough to make up for that. I do think this song is a better fit than his past two performances, but he’s still not up to par. Kelsea applauded his effort though and said, “I love it so much!”
Ayanna has been a standout on “The Comeback Stage” since the beginning. She first appeared on The Voice‘s season premiere and was the first member of Team Kelsea. Now, she is singing “I Put a Spell On You” by “Screamin’ Jay” Hawkins and she is going in for the kill! In my opinion, this is her best performance to date. Kelsea and the pianist seemed to agree too! Kelsea said she got goosebumps and didn’t really give any criticism from her rehearsal. When the time came, she performed perfectly. She adds just the right amount of runs and has control over her voice. From this, I think Ayanna is the one to beat.
Kelsea Chooses Finalists
Kelsea says that “these three artists are no joke amazing” after their performances. She talks about the hard decision ahead of her. Then, when she has to tell the artists who will be moving on, she reiterates that. But in the end, she chose to move forward with Lynnea and Ayanna. I think she made the right decision here! Wyatt had made progress since his Blind Audition, but wasn’t on the level of the other aritsts on “The Comeback Stage.”
Tune in to the Live Playoffs on Tuesday to vote in real-time and see which artist will be joining the Top 13!
