‘The Voice’ Semifinals Were Full Of Amazing Duets. But Who Will Be The Top 4?
Reading Time: 4 minutes
We’ve made it to The Voice semifinals and in just a week will be crowned The Voice Season 16 winner. Tonight’s solos consisted of some great feedback from the coaches and four duets to none other than The Beatles. So who made their presence known during the semifinal show? Let’s get into tonight’s performances.
Andrew Sevener (Team Blake)
Starting off the show with a ton of energy was Team Blake’s, Andrew. He performed to the song Long-Haired Country Boy and made a huge impression on the coaches. Every single one of them commented on how that was Andrew’s best performance. Blake even said that he represented what country music fans love because of his authenticity.
Shawn Sounds (Team John) and Kim Cherry (Team Blake) perform a duet to Eleanor Rigby
Gyth Rigdon (Team Blake)
Since nearly the beginning of the competition, Blake has been saying that Gyth will be in the finale, so now it’s time to see if tonight’s performance will get him there. He performed to God Bless The USA. While Kelly and John believed that wasn’t his best vocal performance due to the song, they commended him on it being successfully performed and full of passion. His coach, Blake, disagreed saying it was his best performance and welcomed him to the finale. Will Blake be right?
Kim Cherry (Team Blake)
Last week Kelly told Kim that although she loved the rapping, she wanted to just hear her sing, and it looks like she took that advice! Kim performed to the song Together Again and showed a softer side than previous performances. John pointed out how multi-talented Kim is to be able to sing, rap & play multiple instruments, while her coach Blake said that she couldn’t have done better on this performance.
Maelyn Jarmon (Team Team) and Rod Stokes (Team Kelly) performed to the song Yesterday and received a standing ovation from all coaches.
Carter Lloyd Horne (Team Blake), “Take Me to Church”
Carter said he had over 200 requests to perform the song Take Me to Church, so he took his fans’ advice. While the coaches seemed to love this genre for Carter, they all agreed that he struggled to find his pitch at the beginning of the song. However, they encouraged him and said it happens to every singer, even at the Grammys and Kelly said not to let it bring him down.
Gyth Rigdon (Team Blake) and Dexter Roberts (Team Blake) perform to the song Hey Jude.
Maelyn Jarmon (Team John)
Leaving a lasting impression on the semi-finals was Maelyn. Her performance of Stay by Rhianna left Adam telling her that he believes she should win the show because she embodies that the show is about. She is definitely a front-runner in the competition so we’ll see if this proves to be true in tomorrow’s results.
Andrew Sevener and Carter Lloyd Horne (Team Blake) perform to Help
Dexter Roberts (Team Blake)
Dexter performed to the song Here Without You. Kelly mentioned that it was smart to go slightly out of the country genre given that there are so many country artists in the semifinals and Blake completely agreed with her. Blake even went as far to say that Dexter’s voice is one of his favorite country voices that he’s ever heard.
Shawn Sounds (Team John)
Ending the show on a strong note is Team John’s Shawn Sounds. His performance to A Song for You was so strong that Adam told him that he felt that Shawn just taught everyone how to sing. Kelly told him that was her favorite performance. Will it be enough to bring him into the finals tomorrow night? We’ll find out soon!
That’s it for tonight. Let us know who you predict the top four finalist will be in the comments below!
