With Kanard Thomas and Ciera Dumas left, only one can move on in The Comeback Stage. So who does Bebe choose? Let’s watch their performances and see!
Ciera made an impression on The Voice viewers this past week after singing Chloe Kohanski. And we didn’t hate it! She starts by talking to Bebe about her backstory. Ciera began singing when she lead worship in her church. She then moved to Nashville wanting to jump-start her music career, but it wasn’t until she auditioned for The Voice that she really found that fire to pursue music for real.
This week, Ciera is singing “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt, the first song she ever sang. The song is much more mellow than “I Wish I Didn’t Love You Last Week.” And to be honest, I prefer the more rough, gritty Ciera we saw before. This didn’t have the same impact for me as her other performances. She did it well and hit the notes, but failed to bring it home. I was bummed too, because she was my favorite going into the Finale!
Kanard is the only artist remaining who failed to turn a chair this season. He’s made it through all the rounds on The Comeback Stage to make it to the Finale! Kanard says that this is his dream come true. He has a 10-year-old who is so excited for him and “already thinks he’s famous.” Kanard wants to be a role model for his son by moving on from his Blind Audition and continuing moving forward.
For the Finale, Kanard decided to sing “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo. And this song choice is perfect! He shows off his unique tone and soulfulness. It’s a song that I used to slow dance to in middle school so it has a lot of sentimental value and he did it justice. Kanard even had the epic moment where the music cut out right before the chorus. This is an artist who knows what he’s doing!
The Comeback Stage Winner Is…
Kanard Thomas! I didn’t want to beat around the bush here, Kanard earned this win. Even watching Bebe in the Lay’s Recording Lounge, you knew this was probably how it would pan out. She’s been a fan since day one. And for good reason, honestly! Kanard is definitely a talented singer.
Now, Kanard will compete against an artist who was eliminated in the Live Cross-Battles next week. But we still don’t know who that will be! I’m hoping it’s either LB Crew, Andrew Jannakos, or The Bundys. We won’t find out until it all goes down Tuesday night, April 30th, on The Voice! That night, we will live vote for one artist to join the Top 13.
