  5. I’m so happy and proud for him. I’m sure this is something he has struggled with this for years so the fact that he’s comfortable sharing this now speaks volumes. I’ll always love and support him. I’ll never know his experience but I’m just so proud of him in this moment.

  10. I’m actually crying I’m so proud of him. It must have been so hard for him dealing with all those rumors when he was young so the fact that he is comfortable enough now. I’m just so proud of my baby right now. His religious upbringing must have made it so hard not to mention his father and brother. I’m so proud of my porkchop.

  16. Talking to Tu’Kala interview! Here’s the podcast version! His mom starting teaching him how to sing. She says he “took it and he ran.” This was funny because a) he ran with it = he went along with it. b) he ran, meaning he did riffs and runs. He said that sometimes in the music industry (alluding to his own past), people try to mould you musically and how you express yourself, but Blake and the show gave him freedom to explore and discover his artistry. He says this a lot, so I’m really happy for him. Feeling Good was the performance he was most worried about because it’s such an important song and because of learning that iconic scat (especially in a week!) He plays piano by ear and he said he wants to learn how to read music. (Bruh, he has developed his musical ear to be PHENOMENAL and so creative. I’m astonished that he can’t read music! ) The Voice experience in 1 word: transformative. He would take an instrument if he could choose one item to take to a deserted island. Probably a trombone because it’s loud enough to get someone’s attention nearby.

  26. ROUND 1: And So It Begins... 40. Christine Cain (Team Legend) Explanation: Kicking off this series of rankings is the artist who originated the "Welcome to Team Legend" song. Christine was the fourth contestant we met in the premiere of the blinds, and she turned two chairs with her rendition of Harry Styles' "Watermelon Sugar." Though I'm not a huge fan of her take on the song, I'll admit I was probably a bit too harsh on it initially - it's a creative twist and she made it work for her, and the risk of flipping a popular pop song and making it more of soulful R&B tune paid off. Though either Kelly or John would have been a good fit for a coach, I wasn't surprised that Christine went to Team Legend since he's a tad more similar of a musical lane. In the battles, Christine was paired with Pia Renee on a Brandy song, and Brandy was their battle round advisor - no pressure there, right? Unfortunately, the two artists did two different vocal stylings on the song, which resulted in it feeling messy in spots (a shame, since both Pia and Christine have solid voices in their own rights). After John chose to advance Pia, Christine was eliminated from the show as by the time their battle filmed there were no steals left and John had already used his save. Best of luck to Christine with her post-show career. Hint: Begin at the beginning. (Christine was the first audition filmed of the first taping and the first Team Legend contestant aired this season.) Genre: R&B Favorite Performance: Watermelon Sugar (blind audition) 39. JD Casper (Team Kelly) Explanation: JD Casper's a male Americana artist, which normally is right up my alley - I just don't think that this was the sort of show where he would have been able to properly showcase his talents. He did tackle one of my favorite songs in the blinds, and while I liked it more than most of IDF I'll admit that the higher parts were not his best. Kelly, however, had been waiting for him to go higher, so she turned - and by that point in the taping process, as the only coach with spots left, JD ended up defaulting to Team Kelly. The suitcase drum was interesting, and it was brought out again for JD's battle against Kenzie Wheeler. Vocally, JD was better here, but he got overshadowed by Kenzie, who was in his element on a classic country song. I'm curious how JD would've handled the knockouts or not performing with the suitcase drum, but as he was eliminated after the battle rounds I don't have a good answer for that question. Wishing JD success now that the show's done. Hint: Don't be a fish out of water. (This is both a nod to the definitely-not-about-actual-fishing battle song and JD's time in the Navy.) Genre: Singer-Songwriter/Country Favorite Performance: Fishin' In The Dark (battle) 38. Devan Blake Jones (Team Nick) Explanation: Coming in at number thirty-eight is the first contestant I feel genuinely kinda bad about putting this low. Devan's blind was an acoustic version of H.E.R.'s "Hard Place" and showed off an easy-to-listen-to tone, decent runs, and an impressive falsetto right at the end (honestly, I was just as shocked as Carson when he hit those last few notes). Nick ended up being the only coach to turn, but considering Devan's intro package he mentioned being excited about the chance to work with Nick I think there's a pretty good chance he would've gone with Nick regardless of having options. Cut to the battle rounds and Devan immediately getting sacrificed to Dana Monique, which understandably made him nervous - Nick noted during the battle rehearsal Devan needed to work on his confidence. During the actual battle, Devan stepped it up confidence-wise and had a few relatively minor pitch issues (side note, that jacket might be one of a few pieces of clothing from the season I would 100% rock if I owned it). Though Nick ultimately chose to advance Dana over Devan, he also chose to use his save to advance Devan to the 4-way Knockout. In the 4-way Knockout, Devan picked a helluva song with Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times" as it's taken out several other artists over the years. It started off just fine, but kind of went off the rails towards the end; that said, he had great stage presence which definitely helped sell the performance. Despite IDF not expecting him to win the 4-way KO, Devan got the last laugh there and ended up becoming the fifth Team Nick representative in the playoffs. Having to tackle a 90s boy band song as a solo artist is a big ask, especially when the band is as iconic as the Backstreet Boys, but Devan had several solid moments throughout; unfortunately, there were also several shaky moments. Though Devan did not advance beyond the top 17, he certainly had a very good run all things considered. The main reason he's as low as he is is because of two back-to-back performances that were shaky, but with the difficulty of those two songs I'll admit that navigating them and making it through in one piece is impressive. Hoping for the best for him career-wise. Hint: Having a coach that stuck with you can sometimes work out. (Devan's battle song was "Stuck With U" and he was a one chair turn on Team Nick that turned into both Nick's battle save and the 4-way Knockout winner.) Genre: R&B/Pop Favorite Performance: Stuck With U (battle) 37. Denisha Dalton (Team Legend) Explanation: The second-highest spot in this set goes to someone I wish we'd gotten to see more of this season. Denisha's take on the song she close for her blind audition was really cool, but some parts of it felt just a tad over-stylized for me, especially towards the end. She ended up getting turns from everyone but Nick, and though I would've liked to see how Kelly or Blake may have handled her Denisha chose to complete Team Legend. Sadly, this was the last of Denisha we got to see in full, as her battle round against Ciana Pelekai was montaged and she was left without a steal or save. I wanted to put her a few spots higher, but I didn't feel it was fair to have her out of the first tier without more than 90 seconds of vocals to base my judgement off of. Sending good vibes to whatever Denisha decides to do next with her musical career. Hint: Three seasons, three chairs. ( Denisha was the first contestant since season 17 to get a Kelly-John-Blake three-chair turn.) Genre: Pop/R&B Favorite Performance: Pillowtalk (blind audition) 36. Halley Greg (Team Kelly) Explanation: Rounding out the last spot in the first set is the most controversial member of this set. IDF please don't cancel me but if y'all want to then I understand I tried to get into Halley - I really, really did. I really loved her tone in her mid-tones and though I wasn't initially super crazy about the arrangement she used for her blind audition, it grew on me after a few re-listens. However, there's one thing that relegated her to the bottom five instead of bumping her up a tier: her whistle register. I just could not for the life of me get into it (and not for lack of trying either). Halley defaulted to Team Kelly and was subsequently placed against Gihanna Zoë in the battle rounds. What followed was the single most "what the f***" song choice of the battle rounds, with "Thinking Out Loud" - it was a song that didn't suit either Halley or Gihanna. The ladies did the best they could with the song choice, but their harmonies didn't mesh all that well, in my opinion. After the decision made in favor of advancing Gihanna, Halley was eliminated. Keeping an eye out for more news on Halley's musical pursuits post-show and wishing her well. Hint: A little birdie told me... ( Halley's blind song was "I'm Like a Bird" I literally couldn't come up with another clue after spending hours on this one, oops.) Genre: Indie/Alternative Favorite Performance: I'm Like A Bird (blind audition) (One quick note before all y'all drag me in this thread: I had the absolute worst time putting together this part of the ranking. To be honest, all of them could have and likely would have been higher in almost any other season, but given how nuts season 20 was talent wise, picking people for the first five in my ranking was actually way harder for me than putting together my top ten. This isn't a knock on this group vocally - it's just my opinion.)

  29. RANKINGS ROUND 10 - IT'S THE END OF THE ROAD 4. Taryn Papa (Team Blake) Explanation: In fourth place lands the contestant who was arguably the most excited to be a part of the Season 19 cast. Taryn had been auditioning for the show for a while (I don't remember the exact number of times off the top of my head) and her persistence eventually landed her a spot in the blind audition lineup for the show. Good female country rep, especially good adult female country rep, is hard to come by on the show. Taryn, as evidenced by her pre-show work, is a very capable vocalist, and was strong enough audition wise not only to get three chairs to turn but also deemed good enough for Blake to use his only block on her. Since Taryn had a history with Blake's Nashville Ole Red location, it was unsurprising that she picked Blake as her coach. For her battle, she got paired with Blake's country trio on an uptempo song; because it was more uptempo than her blind, I was a tiny bit concerned for Taryn despite knowing she was capable of high energy performances. Luckily, Taryn's battle performance pushed all my doubts to the side. Though Taryn was the solo standout from the battle, she lost to Worth the Wait. Luckily for her, Blake saved her and she moved on to the 4-way Knockout. It was in the 4-way Knockout that Taryn chose to tackle a "big ask" Faith Hill song. Unfortunately, the vocal wasn't as good as Taryn had previously shown she was capable of being; there were some parts where her vocals were strained and pitch issues popped up. Though it later came out that there were smoke inhalation issues due to California wildfires, it seems like Taryn was the most blatantly affected by this of the 4-way Knockout participants. Fast forward to the playoffs and the person IDF expected to win the 4-way Knockout gets DQ'd; thus, Taryn was crowned the 4-way Knockout winner and got to perform in the top 17. Taryn's reaction to winning the 4-way Knockout showed she clearly didn't expect to win, but she put on her best performance face and went back out to do her playoffs song. I didn't think her playoffs song was the best showcase for her voice personally, but the original artist of the song reposted Taryn's performance and she managed to get radio airplay for her cover of the song, so it worked out well enough at the end of the day. Taryn's performance wasn't enough to get her beyond the playoffs, but considering I didn't even expect her to make the playoffs in the first place I'm happy she got one last performance on the show. Now that she's off the show, Taryn is back performing at Ole Red, released her own merch, and recently celebrated eight years in Nashville. Crossing my fingers for more good things in her future. Hint: This contestant lives in a hotbed for their musical genre of choice. (Taryn lives in Nashville, which is widely considered the home base of country music) Montage/Leak: She was not montaged at any point and her audition was leaked. Genre: Country Favorite Performance: Little White Church (battle round) 3. Sid Kingsley (Team Legend --> Team Kelly --> Team Blake) Explanation: The bronze medal on the list goes to someone whose voice grew on me over time. As the last male artist to be ranked, the "scruffy guy with a soulful voice" thing that Sid has in spades continues to be one of my favorite types of male artist on the show. Pre-season during the spoilers I wasn't 100% sold on Sid since I wasn't sure how his voice would translate to the show, but I joined his fan thread shortly before his audition aired I think, it was either the day before or morning of if my memory serves me correctly. Gwen hit the nail on the head when she said Sid sounds like a guy who's been making records forever, despite Sid not being much for singing in front of others until relatively recently. Kelly, the only coach that didn't turn, admitted she wanted another level of vulnerability from Sid's blind; Blake rose to Sid's defense and said had Kelly turned, those last puzzle pieces would've clicked. In any case, Sid picked John as his initial coach and moved onto the battles, where he got pitted against Bailey Rae on the singing show staple "Tennessee Whiskey." Despite the song being more in Bailey's wheelhouse, Sid also nailed his vocals; watching back and seeing Kelly go nuts over her button when Sid has a solo part, I'm not surprised John picked Bailey over Sid in the battle since it allowed both of the artists to stay on the show post-battle. Kelly stole Sid after he lost the battle, and decided to pit him against Desz in the Knockouts. In his Knockout, Sid went with the Foy Vance version of "Make It Rain" and killed it - in any other KO matchup on Team Kelly, he likely would have won. Since he got paired against Desz, who also killed it (more on that later), he ended up losing that Knockout but earned a double-steal. After choosing John originally, Sid moved to Team Blake for the playoffs (the choice his mom wanted him to make in the first place). In the playoffs, Sid got a song choice he later admitted he wasn't thrilled about, but the Leon Bridges number still turned out fine considering Sid didn't know the song before it was assigned to him. Was it enough to move him out of the playoffs? Sadly, the answer was no, something that bummed out a good portion of IDF, but at least Sid got to end on a decent note and he was on the show long enough to showcase his saxophone skills on the top 20 performance, so it was a decent run overall. Post-show life for Sid has included getting married and posting covers, including a Tracy Chapman cover you can listen to here. Hint: This contestant is the only contestant to have worked with the majority of the panel. ( Sid was coached by John, Kelly, and Blake during his run on the show.) Montage/Leak: He was not montaged or leaked at any point. Genre: Folk/Soul Favorite Performance: Make It Rain (knockout) 2. Cami Clune (Team Legend -> Team Kelly) Explanation: Finishing as runner-up on this list is an IDF "it girl" and all-around excellent vocalist. Cami's tone is intoxicating, and her audition is probably my favorite from Season 19's overall talent pool. The way her voice worked the song had an almost elastic quality to hit with how she stretched some syllables out and molded the song to work for her. It's little wonder that she got all four judges vying for her - or at least, she would have had Kelly not blocked Blake. She got a standing ovation from the not-blocked judges and Blake going "my name is Blocked Shelton" is a whole-ass mood. Though I would've loved to see what Gwen would've done with Cami, Cami picked John and was placed with James Pyle. Their harmonies were phenomenal, but I didn't feel like the battle allowed either Cami or James to fully shine as artists. Luckily, Cami won the battle and got to move on the Knockouts. It was the Knockout round where Cami had another "moment" - it was also the moment I looked at John and wondered why he'd ever risk sending her or John Holiday home. Cami's rendition of "I Put A Spell On You" was a darker, spookier take on the song rather than a more forceful and dramatic version that's the "standard" that comes to mind when the song gets mentioned in singing competitions, but the version Cami did was absolutely perfect for her voice. Thankfully, Kelly still had her steal left and took Cami through to the lives after she lost the Knockout. Though Team Kelly opened the playoffs, Cami was the closer for the team and lucked out because by that point, production had mostly figured out the sound mix and her version of "Never Tear Us Apart" was considered one of the stronger Team Kelly performances of the night. Going into the results, I was nervous for Cami as a knockout steal on Team Kelly had only ever advanced via public vote and I wasn't sure Cami would get it. Though I was right about not getting the vote, Kelly chose Cami for her coach save and Cami advanced, much to my (and most of IDF's) relief. For the semifinals, Cami was tasked with covering Brandi Carlile's "The Joke" and she did what she could with the number, but it was a step back from her previous two performances. Cami then ended up in the Instant Save and got to do Billie Eilish's "when the party's over" which was great, but not quite enough to win her the save. Since the show, Cami has released covers of her audition and knockout - check the latter out here. Hint: This contestant's audition has one difference from the others in this group. (Cami's audition was the only one that didn't open or close an episode.) Montage/Leak: She was not montaged at any point and her battle and knockout were both leaked. Genre: Indie/Alternative/Pop Favorite Performance: I Put A Spell On You (knockout) 1. Desz (Team Kelly) Explanation: There is one thing that, for me, trumps both female country and soulful scruffy artists - and that's good alto representation. As a woman that cannot hit a note higher than an F5 to save my life, getting female artists on the show with that stronger lower register gives me a big old serotonin boost, and Desz fits that perfectly. Desz was the last artist we met in episode 3 of the blinds, but man, that wait was absolutely worth it. The deeper tones at the start were rich and smooth, the higher bit at the end was solid, and not a note or run was misplaced or out of tune throughout. I graded two auditions as "A"s - one was Cami's, and Desz got the other. After ending the episode on a cliff hanger, it was revealed that Desz opted to join Team Kelly. For her battle round, Desz was paired with Joseph Soul - both were good, but unlike her partner Desz had no nerves impacting her performance, which ultimately led to her being victorious. Desz was then matched up with Kelly's stolen artist, Sid Kingsley. While Sid was great, Desz undeniably knocked this one out of the park and tbh Kelly screwed up by pairing them together. She nailed every single one of the runs she did, showed off her range nicely, and got the crowd and coaches jamming out. Kelly ultimately chose to advance Desz as part of her playoffs team, and said team was chosen to open the show. Desz ended up opening the playoffs with a Tina Turner song that may have tanked a less experienced vocalist; though not quite at her knockout's level, Desz did great with it and advanced via public vote to the semifinals with little issue. She went back to 90s R&B for the semis and though En Vogue is a big ask, Desz abso-flippin-loutely crushed it, including the high note towards the end. Unsurprisingly, she got the public vote into the finale. Here, Desz was stronger on her original song, which had a gospel edge she hadn't got to utilize while still being soulful and powerful. Though I liked her take on her cover song, going for Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" was a bit of a head-scratcher and a small step back from her semifinals performance. That said, Desz was still fantastic, so no complaints here. For the finale coach duet, Kelly and Desz went the Chaka Khan route and were the strongest duet of the night that is scientific fact and I will not be taking criticism. Considering how consistent Desz was over the course of the season, I was confident she could finish at least third; thus, I was just as disappointed as Kelly when she ultimately came in fourth. After her run on the show, Desz did several Instagram lives about Season 20 of The Voice throughout the course of the season. Wishing all the best to Desz with her musical career. Hint: This contestant sang with or against another member of this group at some point.. (Desz' knockout partner was Sid.) Montage/Leak: She was not montaged at any point and her battle was leaked. Genre: R&B Favorite Performance: Can We Talk (knockout)
