    No worries! I was trying to find info and it seemed so confusing. Vaughn is a fan fave cause of the preview, but there's a few contestants who apparently get cut I'd personally pick over him if there was a wildcard thing happening. Thanks! 

    Yeah, right now the closest thing to the wikdcard is the coach’s save for one of their bottom 4 in the first round of lives. 🙁

    Had a feeling that being the Instant Save wasn't a big hindrance for Toneisha! Congrats to her on 2nd 🙂

     

    In The Voice Australia season 3, Anja Nissen needed a wild card/save to get the 5th spot in the finale (1 contestant per coach as well) and she ended up winning the competition over everyone that got saved by the public. :haha: Would've been interesting to see it happen over here as well.

    I wonder if Toneisha was running second in votes the whole time. Why couldn't they have just given Todd Sudds in the Bucket :/

  3. Okay! Listened to all of the originals: 

     

    I liked them all!

     

    Toneisha: Slow pop ballad, with a really tasteful build. Liked it quite a bit, it was great.

     

    Thunderstorm: Fits his voice incredibly well. And his voice is stunning. I do wish the chorus was something other than "Oh Sedona" repeated like 5x though

     

    Micah: This is probably my personal favorite! Liked the song a lot, though it's probably not the best vote-getter of the bunch.

     

    Cammwess: Least favorite of the bunch, and probably the worst one for the competition. I still liked it fine though! It's not terrible or anything

     

    Todd: This was really good too. I like Todd's voice, and a emotional, country-ish ballad was the perfect song for him.

    According to Todd,  Monday night will only have originals and solos. Coach duets and group numbers will be on Tuesday. Additional guest artists are still a possibility. 

    Kinda glad about this. Coach duets are generally awful :w00twave:

    Kyla had the best Top 12, Top 10 and Semifinal performances. She even slayed the "This is Me" song despite being the first to perform and charted on iTunes even higher than Brynn. She could have been the first black powerhouse vocalist to win The Voice but she was clearly bussed by being given songs which deprived her of showcasing the magic she had on those three preceding performances. That country original song "The Last Tear" which was obviously a Garth Brooks hit (Leave the Light On), was certainly TPTB's way of sabotaging Kyla and Blake to prevent Blake from winning again after his Chloe victory on Season 13.

    If only Kyla would be so lucky for the song to be a hit :haha:. They'd never use a song that was actually recognizable because it would create real controversy. But the song was way too awful to ever be more than an unreleased torture device to be thrust on some poor unsuspecting vocal contestant 

  6. Since there has been some discussion on this, I'll add a few things. I'll try to separate out my points for clarity.

     

    So, first: The entire concept of the "bus" relies on an assumption of competence with TPTB. Or more, that they're not incompetent. I think this has to be valid. TPTB know what they're doing. They know what they want and the best ways to get there. It doesn't always work out but they aren't idiots. They know their audience (probably even better than we do), how a song will be received, and what the implications are.

     

    Kyla was hit by the bus. Hard. I remember seeing/hearing her songs and instantly realizing she had 0% chance of winning. IIRC she also performed both of her solos in the first half of the show. Even IF it wasn't intentional, based on pure negligence, the songs she was given made it certain she couldn't win. I don't think Brynn being given a "boring" (not bad though!) song in bloodbath in the first position is a sign she had an insurmountable lead either. For one, it's clear that going first is not the "death spot" anyway (Kyla went first t10). Instead, I think Brynn just had a high floor with the largest devoted fanbase. I think she was always getting 1st or 2nd in the finale because of this. Kyla relied almost entirely on casual votes. 

     

    And yeah, of course when an artist gets bamboozled, their fans aren't pleased. But there's a difference between resenting the treatment and just being unhappy with the results. Whatever happened with Kyla doesn't take away from Brynn's win. But it still feels awful that Kyla wasn't even provided the opportunity to have good performances (or at least good studios 🤡).
