    Some feedback (taping 1): Casme vs. Tamara: -All the sources loved Tamara and spoke positively about Casme -Casme had a strong performance, although some high notes felt a bit "thin" -Kelly praised her "unique" take on the song -Tamara was praised by all the coaches for her personality and her connection to her song. Gwen pointed out her "quirkiness" -Tamara added some lyrics/ad libs -John said her "body was connected" to the performance, which made all the difference DeSz vs. Sid -DeSz had a strong performance according to all sources -Coaches commented that DeSz kept on outdoing herself -Apparently there was a nice key change in there that "solidified" her strong performance -Sid was very strong and gritty and "gave DeSz a run for her money" -Kelly felt stupid for pairing them (of course) -Blake's steal pitch was about how John let him go before and he shouldn't trust him again, plus Blake apparently "never" steals contestants in KOs that weren't originally his (a wiki check kills that immediately lol). Sid chose Blake Carter vs. Chloe -Gwen screamed "My baby!" at Carter when he began. -Carter sang his song apparently a few semitones higher than the original (???) -Carter was pretty good overall, but one source said it didn't really feel special -The coaches loved Chloe's performance and were genuinely stunned that she was able to perform the way she did. -Gwen was surprised at how much Chloe had improved from her rehearsal and asked Chloe how she got even better/Chloe said something about believing in herself, etc. -John picked Chloe as the winner and said that he didn't expect to use his steal on her. Ben vs. Worth the Wait -Mixed feedback for Ben from the sources - someone said he messed up a part, another said he was generic -The coaches repeated and repeated how "consistent" his vocals were. John used the word "boring" in his feedback but it was taken out of context and the coaches kept poking fun at him -WTW started acapella, transitioned to a slow version, and ended with a hoedown/upbeat version of the song -Coaches stated it was their best performance yet. Kelly praised each member individually -Sources generally liked WTW overall -More than one source said they groaned when Gwen stole Ben. Gwen said she wanted her "country moment" and said she was initially saving her steal for someone else. Marisa vs. Tanner -Marisa played her own version of If I Could Turn Back Time on a keyboard -John and Blake were talking to Marisa up until the literal moment that her song began. -Marisa apparently started rough with unusual/weird vocals but she recovered fully by the end -Sources were mixed on Tanner, a few though he was good, another one said he made the song sound like bro country -Marisa gave a speech to the coaches about how she her performance showed off her "true artistry," etc. She also name dropped that she knows the woman who wrote the song. -Kelly had a tough time picking -When Kelly picked Tanner, apparently the hype guy commented something about Marisa's facial expression but the audience didn't see it. -Marisa was "visibly shook" and on the verge of tears. Apparently she described that she felt *dagger motion to the heart*. She said she was heartbroken. -Gwen apparently commented that she had been saving her steal for Marisa. Cami vs. John -Based on the "spooky" "dark" description that a source gave, I think it's fair to assume she did the Annie Lennox version? -Everyone loved it, the coaches loved it, Kelly implied she'd steal. -One source described it as the "best knockout pairing they'd ever seen" -John nailed his performance. -Literally just positive stuff for both so I'll just end it here.

    Taping 2 (there were only 2 people that gave detailed info..) Jim vs. JusJon -Yes, he cried. And yes, he actually did a great job according to the sources. -All the coaches picked Jim -JusJon "didn't do a bad job" Payge vs. Ryan -Payge received a standing ovation from all the coaches after her performance, and she was shaking after. -They talked about Payge having an "out of body" experience -The coaches loved Ryan as well -One of the coaches said that they'd wished the KO occurred earlier (to steal) -John commented that Payge gave one of the "best performances he'd seen on the show" Bailey vs. Lauren -Kelly said that they both needed to get "out of their heads"' -Lauren was shakier than Bailey. She looked very nervous -One source said "Lauren took her out by the metaphorical ponytail and beat her like a drum" -Kelly picked Bailey, Gwen and Blake picked Lauren Joseph vs. Van -Joseph was "pitchy" according to a source, but the head voice/falsetto part was nice. Kelly said he was "choppy" but stilled picked him over Van. -Van: "It was... something." Blake thought Van was "distracting with his staging" (?) -Gwen said Van's song was "weird" for the setting. -John actually picked Van over Joseph The 4-Way KO -Apparently it took a long time to set up and some people were talking about how attractive Ryan was. -Not much feedback here other than everyone was good? Ian vs. James -Ian did "better than expected" -James made the unusual song choice "work" according to a source -John picked James because of his "range" -Gwen and Kelly picked Ian, but Kelly had a lot of praise for James -Apparently James was mad but neither source actually saw what happened/if he stormed off a certain way or anything. Kelsie vs. Madeline -Kelsie did the "go down" lyric. Blake commented on the fact that she left the lyric in afterward. Gwen thought the song was "wrong for the setting" -A source said "she gave 200%" -The same source said Madeline was "good except one part" -All the coaches commented on Madeline's "connection to the song" -Kelly, as always, took "forever to decide" but Kelsie was "so great about [losing]"

    TPTB don’t care because Gwen doesn’t care. She’s not naturally competitive like Adam or Kelly, she’s not trying to leave the show without the humiliation of never winning like Xtina. She’s perfectly happy to wear quirky outfits and get paid to hang out with “Blakey”.

    Payge isn’t even remotely a diva. Just because she’s Black, that doesn’t make her a diva. Her style is very different then Tamara or Desz

    Updated teams. We know Carter, Emmalee, and Worth the Wait are the final contestants for Gwen, Kelly, and Blake, respectively. The source for taping 8 believed that the male/possibly James was the final one for John but they didn't 100% recall. With this info, we can conclude that taping 6 consisted of 1 contestant for Kelly, Gwen, and John each. TEAM KELLY (9/10) Marisa Corvo Skylar Mayton DeSz Eli Zamora Madeline Consoer Kelsie Watts TBA (male, sang opera) Tanner Gomes Emmalee TEAM GWEN (9/10) Liam St. John Lauren Frihauf Payge Turner Tori Miller Chloe Hogan Van Andrew Ryan Berg Lain Roy Carter Rubin TEAM JOHN (9/10) Sid Kingsley Tamara Jade Rio Souma John Holiday Cami Clune Julia Cooper Casme TBA (female country singer) TBA (male from CA, possibly James Pyle) TEAM BLAKE (10/10) Taryn Papa Ben Allen Sam Stacy Ian Flanigan John Sullivan Joseph Soul Payton Lamar JusJon Jim Ranger Worth the Wait

    Voting has officially ended, and results are in. Thank you so much for all of the participation. (Almost 70 votes for the finale!) I had a blast making this thread and game, and I'm thinking of doing one for The Voice Blinds. I also hope people enjoyed looking back at past performances, or seeing them for the first time. I have to say, that was one of the most fun elements for me. Like - I know Josh Kaufman was eliminated early, but he was one where..I forgot how great he was. (And again, all performances that made the top 64 were outstanding). Although I was a little surprised (although - maybe I shouldn't have been), at the Finale, the top 2 performances are undeniably fantastic. Maelyn is one of the best and most consistent singers to ever appear on this show. She's technically brilliant, and her voice is stunning. She delivered night after night. The only thing I'd ever be critical of is that her season didn't give us enough performances from her. Ironically, when I first heard Maelyn, she reminded me of Amber. Again, one of the most talented vocalists to ever appear on this show. When she was on..she was special. And she was certainly "on" for her performance of "Sad." So..Results are in..and the winner is...... Undeniably one of the best performances in Voice history. And an excellent representation of what is still one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) Voice season's in history. (And for those who haven't heard it, look up the studio...it is stunning.)

    So here's some feedback I compiled from the battles (in order): A lot of sources for taping 1, very few for 2 & 3 - each line refers to one source's opinion/feedback or at least some combo of multiple with the same feedback. Taping One: Bailey Rae vs. Sid Kingsley -Sid was more interesting, but the source preferred BAiley -surprised Bailey won -Sid was more solid -Bailey started pitchy, Sid "tried too hard" DeSz vs. Joseph Soul -Desz "destroyed" Joseph -DeSz > Joseph, Joseph had nerves -All the coaches picked DeSz Worth the Wait vs. Taryn Papa -Taryn > WTW; Mia (youngest) "carried WTW" -"Very Good" with Blake comparing Mia to Danielle and Taryn to Cassadee -Kelly and Blake apparently thought Taryn didn't show off her voice as much as she could have -Kelly and Gwen chose Worth the Wait, John chose Taryn Payge Turner vs. Lauren Frihauf -Payge was "elegant, perfect" and Lauren was "at her level" -"favorite battle by far" -"both were emotional; Payge connected more" -"really pretty" -Kelly and Blake picked Payge, John said he couldn't pick between the two Tamara Jade vs. Olivia Reyes -"Tamara was pitchy but had potential, Olivia was more controlled" -"equal, but Tamara was the obvious choice" -Kelly and Blake picked Tamara Marisa Corvo vs. Ryan Gallagher -"Marisa ate him all the way up and left no crumbs" -"Ryan was controlled, but Marisa was powerful and emotional and turned him into a background singer" -"Marisa KILLED IT!" -Coaches unanimously picked Marisa, but Kelly apparently still had a hard time choosing. What else is new? Ian Flanigan vs. Aaron Scott -"Pretty boring" -coaches couldn't hear Aaron's identity, while Ian's was clear -unanimously picked Ian Taping Two: Carter Rubin vs. Larriah Jackson -"Even battle" -Blake and John picked Larriah, but apparently said it was super close -"Very strong by both" John Holiday vs. Julia Cooper - SONG WAS SUMMER SOFT BY STEVIE WONDER -John edged out Julia, but Julia did great -Gwen and Blake picked John, Kelly picked Julia. John didn't hesitate at all to pick John. Jim Ranger vs. John Sullivan - SONG WAS GOOD AS YOU BY KANE BROWN -John did well and had nice moments, but Jim "won that hands down" -Coaches unanimously picked Jim Chloe Hogan vs. Lain Roy - SONG WAS ADORE YOU BY HARRY STYLES -Blake and John pointed out several issues with Lain -Gwen was torn; Chloe was better but not perfect -"Lain was a mess... strained... weak for a lot... pitch was off..." -song was pitched down 1-2 semi-tones, which was still too high for Lain but solid enough for Chloe" -Blake said Lain "didn't meet expectations" -John said Lain was "less under control, while Chloe exceeded expectations" -Gwen pretty much admitted Lain was her #1 and Chloe was middle tier for her, but Chloe rose up to the occasion -Song choice smh Tanner Gomes vs. Skylar Mayton -John loved it -one of the sources didn't like this lol -Not much feedback was provided for this one, other than Kelly took a long time as usual Cami Clune vs. James Pyle -Sources generally thought this was a good, even battle -Kelly and Gwen said that they would've fought to steal James if they still had their steals. Taping Three: JusJon vs. Payton Lamar -The coaches all agreed that JusJon was the winner Van Andrew vs. Tori Miller -The coaches all agreed that Van was the winner Madeline Consoer vs. Eli Zamora -A bizarre pairing with a bizarre song choice, but they did pretty well -Coaches were split -some of the song was sung in Spanish Casme vs. Rio Souma -"AMAZING" -Kelly said Casme had the "full package" and was a "star" -Apparently the coaches said it was their favorite battle Ben Allen vs. Sam Stacy -"Decent" -That's it that's the feedback lol Kelsie Watts vs. Emmalee -"Kelsie KILLED it" -Emmalee was good, but Kelsie was better -John and Blake picked Emmalee Ryan Berg vs. Liam St. John -Good battle -Liam had some killer notes but all the coaches chose Ryan (all expressed that they liked Liam!)

    Remember when IDF thought that Jake was going to win season 17? . Well, we were right but we picked the wrong Jake .

    Crackpot Theory #2: Worth the Wait is Blake's real TCO for the season, and a bus is headed for Jim on the Playoffs to ensure the girls get the PV. *In MatPat's voice* but HEY, IT'S JUST A THEORY! A VOICE THEORY!

    I can answer that in one word: misogyny mi·sog·y·ny /məˈsäjənē/ noun: 1. dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women. -------------------------------------------------- It's just a reflection of the mainstream country genre. Country radio in particular. I could make a argument that format essentially hates women. This is the current top 20 on Country radio. 2 females, 18 males. To be clear, this is typical of the gender mix on country radio.

    Literally all coaches use their saves and steals early on, I don't know what you're on about lmao Also, Kelly is also known for going with her heart and you seem to praise her, not saying that you shouldn't though Gwen's team isn't even that week

    Casme, Chloe, and Larriah exist, too I feel like we might be sleeping on Casme in particular. From what little info we had on her blind and battle (literally 1 source each) - there was literally only praise. The coaches even said her battle was their favorite overall with only a few left to go. 6 AA women this season and we're stuck talking about just DeSz and Tamara simply bc they're 4-chairs... I mean props to them because obviously they're phenomenal but if we're hyping up the love to female AA contestants, you have Payge, Casme, Chloe, and Larriah to talk about as well!

    Yeah, she gave up her teen girl for Tanner. It’s only one report, but it was mentioned that Skylar was decent. Kelly’s pecking order is... 1. Male country singer 2. Teen girl 3. AA Diva 4. Non-country male . . . . 100. White adult female, regardless of genre

    It's hard to say whether or not Gwen made good decisions unless you actually saw the battles. I'm just reporting what I was told - and what I was told was that in pretty much each case, the judges all chose the person that Gwen eventually selected in pretty much every case, so her decisions should probably be the least controversial? I get that a lot of fan favorites from Team Gwen were eliminated (Liam was my #1 this season, sadly - but Kelly, John, and Blake apparently all chose Ryan over him, Lain got criticism from the coaches, and Payge and Lauren definitely had breakout moments with their battle and Gwen picked Payge) but that doesn't mean her team's trash now. Y'all just haven't identified an early favorite on her team and that's fine. I prefer her current KO lineup over Blake's easily, but that's just me lol. I can't say for certain whether my preference will hold up until next month when the show airs. I'll compile everything and make a separate post hopefully tomorrow with specific feedback to give y'all some more insight. Taping 1 has A LOT of feedback/opinions to sort through (Thankfully! Shoutout to all the sources!) and just a couple for tapings 2 and 3.

    No, but here are a few spoilers that will drive people crazy: The chairs are still red. The battle lights are still blue. Gwen is still a blonde. And Blake is still a sasquatch.

    Hi everyone, I just created an account here, but I have been watching this forum and the show since season 8, exactly when xtina was training Kimberly Nichole on the HOTRS song, since then I have been obsessed with the show until today, and thanks to those who collect and provide us with valuable information about spoilers Ps: I'm from Peru and team Gwen forever, even if a win from her is unlikely

    It seems like Team Blake will be a battle between Jim and Taryn for all we know. Watch them both get eliminated before lives do to IDF´s predicition skills
