Girl Named Tom Makes History as The First Trio in ‘The Voice’ Finale
Girl Named Tom has made waves throughout this season of The Voice. They came into the competition and impressed both the coaches and audience in their four-chair turn audition. Girl Named Tom arrived on The Voice sounding like a professional group and now might leave the show as one.
This group has repeatedly been safe throughout every round of the competition and has made it onto the iTunes chart. Their performances from the live playoffs have gotten them some online traction, but each week they’ve done progressively better. Their performance of “River” by Joni Mitchell peaked on the chart at No. 1 two days after their performance. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these iTunes rating could be very telling for this sibling trio.
At the beginning of this season, many fans were curious about how a group could audition for this series. The Voice has always welcomed duos and trios into their competition. Fans of the series typically don’t remember these groups because they’re not known for making it very far.
Girl Named Tom is officially the first trio in The Voice history to compete in the finale. If my predictions are right, this sibling trio will surpass their new title and earn a way larger honor.
The History of Groups On The Voice
It’s not a new phenomenon for groups to audition and make it onto The Voice. Groups audition for this show all the time, it’s just rare for them to make it as far as Girl Named Tom has this season.
The last trio to make it far in The Voice was Worth The Wait in season 19. Worth The Wait is a family trio that auditioned singing “When Will I Be Loved” by Linda Ronstadt. Their amazing harmonies got them a four chair turn. This mother and two-daughter trio went on to nail each performance in the competition. Unfortunately, they did not make it into the Top 9 on their season of The Voice.
Before Worth The Wait, the trio group The Bundys had been the trio to make it the furthest in the competition. In season 16, The Bundy’s auditioned for the show singing “Closer to Fine” by Indigo Girls. This sibling group is composed of Megan, Katey, and Ryan Bundy. They were on Team Kelly and were eliminated from the competition during the battle rounds.
Other than those trios, the groups on the series have mostly been duos. If you’re linking duos and trios in the same category, technically The Swon Brothers from Team Blake in season four are still the most successful to date. They are the first duo to make it the furthest in the competition. They went all the way to the finale and ended in third place of their season.
