  1. Hmm... first could be Payge? The whole series is a page-turner! Second could be Lain. IDF getting invested in their favorites before they get eliminated in the battles.
  2. Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith, I think. I'm super interested in hearing his flipped version!
  3. That's disappointing, but, I wish him all the best after the show. He garnered a lot of fans during his time, way more than I would have thought when I first read the spoilers results.
  4. Yeah, if Ryan broke protocol then that’s disappointing but the Voice would be justified. But, like what CDH4 said above, the Voice could have just stated that upfront and there wouldn’t be this mystery at all. Since they didn’t (maybe they are drafting something up now), it does seem even more suspicious. I didn’t heed too much attention to this earlier in the week, but I noticed that the Voice Twitter reposted Taryn’s, Julia’s, and Larriah’s knockouts but NOT Ryan’s throughout all of last week. This kind of makes me think this wasn’t a last minute decision, and the producers were already moving for this to happen earlier in the week (without telling Ryan since he was still posting). Their reasoning for that is still unknown. I’ll still be following him afterwards because his voice moved me so much, but yeah, this is definitely an awkward situation.
  5. I'm just holding out hope that he was DQed because he got a record deal. I know he (and Marisa) mentioned that if they make the lives, they can't release music for another year. (I'm not sure if that's actually true or not lol). But, we know that he was planning on holding an IG live event earlier today to 'spread cheer'... so what if this is all connected? Maybe Ryan is moving on to bigger and better things. Or this could just be just my optimist brain trying to rationalize everything... I'm so sad we didn't get to hear his duet with Kelly.
  6. Yeah I think Ian has a chance for the PV. Because Jim's song doesn't really have a moment.
  7. Hero really is a big risk, big reward song. He could easily get drowned out trying to match the soaring vocals, or he could propel himself even higher. We'll see tonight! EDIT: I remember Sharane S14 had momentum going after getting the PV and then tanked in Hero, so...
  8. I think Desz will be fine, it's a popular song and Desz can pull it off consistently. Worked for Britton in S14 too.
  9. I think this is a solid choice to cross over to the viewers that see him as only able to sing opera. Plus, I love that he took inspiration from this beautiful duet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyLYdd-GjJ8
  10. Julia - hands to myself taryn - I hope you’re happy now larriah - sweet love
  11. Carter - hero, Mariah Carey version damn this is a big song so could go either way
  12. Ryan is doing Perfect symphony version! He has a cover of that on YouTube.
  13. Seriously, I know what you mean. BB22 was a complete snoozefest. When the most exciting thing is the postgame drama of who follows and no longer follows who (looking at you, Davonne and Kevin ), you know the season sucked. Anyways, I feel really bad for Marisa because it sounds like she's been through a lot up until this point, but I hope she learns and grows from this.
  14. I honestly don't remember the details, but I think she had mentioned that Taylor was difficult to work with, and that she was superior in the battle and should have won. Thinking about it, this completely pales in comparison to the reactions from newer contestants (b/c she didn't like go for the coach's throat or anything). But probably in the context of that time, it was rarer to speak out against decisions made on the Voice. The only other early Voice saltiness that I remember was the guys trashing Erin Martin on the Walk Like an Egyptian battle.
  15. So much shade, but: all of their battle partners went off on tirades against the Voice after their elimination (Marisa, Rizzi, Amanda, Jake).
  16. Also, now that I’m reliving this again lol, Tessanne’s reaction to meeting Celine Dion and then DUETING with her at the finale was amazing. Recent seasons could never.
  17. Yes, S5 is my favorite as well! So many contestants had their own moments to shine where it felt like they could have taken it all: James Wolpert’s A Case of You, Matthew’s Hallelujah, Will’s At Last, and of course Tessanne. Everyone was so good in their own way.
  18. I wasn’t like tracking Facebook reacts or comments or anything like that during that time. So this is from what I remember about the general hype each contestant had, as well as the iTunes rankings each week. I think iTunes was a pretty good representation of minivan’s support that season BECAUSE that season lacked strong country contestants (S5 being the last time Blake missed out on the finale IIRC). So minivan had to find other genres to support, and honestly that made the season super fluid. I feel like minivan always respected Tessanne but they had other favorites (Matthew, Will, and Jacquie to an extent) until Tessanne basically commanded their attention at the most crucial time.
  19. Great find, his tone is so pure on this one!
  20. So for Season 5, Tessanne was honestly an interesting case. Minivan definitely liked Matthew Schuler at the start of lives, and IIRC Will Champlin got a ton of support with At Last. (Jacquie was also popular but I’d say she was more of an online/younger fan base favorite rather than minivan.) Anyways, Tessanne was always considered a solid vocalist but she was pretty middle of the road for most of the lives on iTunes and in hype (Matthew especially, but also Jacquie, and Will all had a lot of support). Part of that I think was a stretch of weeks where Tessanne did reggae (solidly, but possibly harder to connect with the audience). After Matthew’s voice started declining, the competition was blown wide open. Tessanne only surged to the top in the semifinals when she nailed Bridge Over Troubled Water, and then it was smooth sailing from there. Tessanne is one of my favorite contestants (and vocalists) ever, so I remember these weeks pretty vividly haha.
  21. On his IG stories, Sid’s going on a hilarious crusade to get people not to vote for Ian or Jim. He cracks me up, so please add me!
