  1. I was gonna say Loren but I was beat to it! Loren really has thrived because of her exposure on the Voice. While Loren may never be an A List musical star, what she is now is a singer who makes a more than comfortable living. She tours with famous musician David Foster, (Fun Fact: married to Kathrine McPhee from American Idol too!), and is featured several times on his most recent album and sings at event after event for large organizations. And her Knockout was credited as a large reason why she was picked for her getting to sing Never Enough. I also would like nominate Kathrine Ho kinda? She sings Yellow by Coldplay in Mandarin in Crazy Rich Asians and now has a solid career as a bilingual singer, but I feel this might have happened in regardless of her appearance on The Voice, not because of it
  2. ooooooooo I love the idea of this! Upward Trajectory- Rod Stokes (I liked GYTH of all people more than him going into the battles, but after he was served at the alter by Adam to Maelyn, yet still killed it he quickly became my favorite country guy of S16, come Semi Finals I wanted a Rod/Maelyn Final 2) Andrew Sevner (Least favorite contestant on Team Blake going into battles, but week after week proved to be one of the much better country guys of the season!) Franc West (I thought he was a waste of a chair based on his blind, but he really did show up each round and give better and better performances and I ended really liking him) Kim Cherry (When she was leaked as the Sneak Peek for S16, i was like dear lord what have we gotten ourselves into. While I didn't love her in the end i just think literally performance after her blind was miles better especially Here) Lisa Ramey (I thought her blind was so boring, just a string of belts with no meaning behind them, but when she sang in The Joke....... wow one of my fave battles to this day. In the end I wanted her to take John's last spot over Celia def and maybe even Shawn which is unpopular I know) Chris Jamison (I thought he was just kinda bland, I wanted Adam to save Mia > Taylor P > Chris but he really did step it up and his originals is easily one of the best to come from the show) Jackie Verna (At the time, I thought her blind was so weird because it almost felt like she had two voices she sang with, but each song after that I slowly fell in love till she ended up being my second favorite of the whole season!) Downward- Mary Sarah (girl I mean come on. Her blind was one of the best ever, so clear and spot on and while I wouldn't say anything was AWFUL per say just she never even got close to her blind) Celia Babini (Every season i make my ideal top 12 and I had her as my 3rd fave of the season, shameful I know, and I actually still liked her battle, but her lives man were rough! If Celia from the blinds had stuck around I would still be a fan, and i don't hate her, she just lost all my admiration Korin Bukowski (So Korin is actually the reason I ever started watching The Voice, i was auditioning for a local version of the Color Purple and I really wanted to show my voice on an unexpected song bc we had to sing a new song and one from the show and I liked Cecelia and the Satellite covers and I watched Korin's and I've loved the show since. and All I Want is to this day one of my fave covers on the show period. but her lives were awful which pains me to say)
  3. I voted Rose but I was in the audience when Rose sang her instant save so I'm biased. Sisaundra held the crown before Rose though for me
  4. This one made me so sad because I thought she was good in the blinds, phenomenal in the battles, so i was thinking she could have a great growth arc then Stay happened.......
  5. I'm sorry no one has mentioned Reagan James Fancy? I considered shoving my chop sticks in my ears to make it stop
  6. I'm so sorry! I'll fix it right away

  8. Interesting note Kim Cruse was on the Terrell Show (lots of singing clips in there so listen there if you want to hear some better quality videos of her) but she apparently won an online singing competition. I couldn’t find many details about it, but apparently “thousands” from all around the world would send in videos of themselves singing and Kim was the winner! I wonder if that will help or hurt her chances if she’s on the show or even if she brings it up at all
  9. Hi everyone, it's been a while but with everything going on in the world, I thought it was important to step back and educate myself on A LOT of issues. One of my favorite topics pre update was the topic of what songs contestants were gonna sing if they had gone through to the next round and it never got renewed after the update :(. But that is why I am here. I remember very few of the actual songs so please comment them and I will add them! I actually also found 3 of my own too to add so if you ever find any please comment and I will update!

  10. I just realized that I didn't talk about the last auditions I thought they were all good, though I wouldn't place any of them on my final team My Final Team- 1. Stellar Perry 2. Johnny Manuel 3. Elyse Sene 4. Caleb Jago-Ward 5. Janie Gordon 6. Jesse Teinaki 7. Despina Savva 8. Xy Latu 9. Masha Mnjoyan 10. Roxanne Lebrasse 12. Jonathon Welch 12. Jimi the Kween And boy are these battle pairings weird! I kept expecting one pairing and another one would happen. Like Xy vs Natalie vs Wolf? What is that? I expected Wolf to face Josh and Adam, Natalie to take on Stephanie, and Xy to take on Elyse
  11. What do you guys think of the teams so far? My team breakdown Kelly- Fourth Weakest by miles, there's very few standouts. Alex is a double block, but simple, Masha is great vocally, not very personalble and is getting lots of flack for already winning in Armenia, Chris has a standout because of his story as Guy's brother, but I thought he was meh, and Mark just didn't do it for me Ranking: Masha/Alex > Mark > Chris > Bo'Ness/Lyric > Ella/Emma >>>>>> Suma George- Second His team is pretty good actually. He has a number of unique and interesting contestants, but none of them scream winner at me. I fear Caleb will have his personality (that I actually like) bite him in the rear, Angela is a little on the older side, but pretty good, Roxanne is good, plus inspiring story always helps Ranking: Caleb > Clarissa > Anglea/Roxanne > Despina > Siala/Jonathon/Nathan >> Virginia/Sebastian/Ricky >> Andy D. Delta- Third Her team is strange to me. Really good beginning, but then the second half is all fodder. Stellar, Janie, and Jesse are all contenders with Matt G is a dark horse, so she's not out but so much her team has been seen a million different times Ranking: Stellar >> Janie/Jesse > Matt G/Claudia > Matt E/Graeme > Maddy/Emmagen/Elisha/Callum Guy- First Is this a surprise? He just keeps getting the best contestants like Johnny, Adam, Xy, Elyse or even the standout stories even if they're weaker singers like Buhku/Natalie. Even the 'fodder' on Team Guy is stronger than most of the fodder on the others teams Ranking: Xy/Adam/Johnny/Elyse > Timothy > Luke/Stephanie/Jimi > Bukhu > Josh/Kirby/Natalie
  12. 1. Elyse Sene (A-): Damn this was goooood. Plus the way she broke down, but was so excited. Easily a favorite 2. Clarissa Spata (B+): Really good too! I'm personally not an opera fan so sometimes it can seem a bit long, but she is sooo good 3. Graeme Isaako (B): Rock solid, I thought he sounded a little too much like MJ, so it came across as more of an impersonation then genuine, but I'm excited for him 4. Nathan Issac (C+): Not bad by any means, it's just not a huge vocal showcase song so it was fine but not great My team 1. Stellar Perry 2. Johnny Manuel 3. Elyse Sene 4. Caleb Jago-Ward 5. Janie Gordon 6. Xy Latu 7. Despina Savva 8. Jesse Teinaki 9. Masha Mnjoyan 10. Roxanne Lebrasse 11. Jonathon Welch Standby For Last Spot - Jimi the Kween - Luke Biscan - Angela Fabian - Clarissa Spata
  13. Yeah just to add on to this bit, not only does the Voice Australia page hate him, but it seems that he’s hated period. On his personal Instagram most posts have comments turned off and the ones that do have only positive comments and then there it’s locked from more comments
  14. I thought last night was really good! I would rank the new auditions as: 1. Johnny Manuel (A) He and Stellar are favorite by MILES 2. Claudia Harrison (B) I thought her voice was really pretty, but a little lacking in horsepower. I think she might be paired up with Janie, and I think Janie would eat her whole 3. Lyric McFarland (B-) She kinda reminded me of Toneshia from this last season of the Voice US, really good voice, kinda bland 4. Bo'Ness (C+) Fairly good, I don't know the original but I didn't like it all that much 5. Emma Mylott (C-) This song is fun, sexy, and sassy and I felt she sucked all of those things out of the song. Her voice wasn't bad, it just made a really exciting song, rather lackluster 6. Andy Dexterity (C-) There just wasn’t enough singing My Team 1. Stellar Perry (Delta) 2. Johnny Manuel (Guy) 3. Caleb Jago Ward (George) 4. Janie Gordon (Delta) 5. Despina Savva (George) 6. Xy Latu (Guy) 7. Roxanne LeBrasse (George) 8. Jesse Teinaki (Delta) 9. Masha Mnjoyan (Kelly) 10. Jimi the Kween (Guy) Fighting For Last Spots in No Order - Lyric McFarland - Adam Ludewig - Luke Biscan - Matt Gresham - Matt Evans - Alex Weybury - Angela Fabian
  15. 1. Masha Mnjoyan (A-) I really liked her, though it is a crazy overdone song. Especially after especially after Jake Zyrus’s version I don’t think anyone can compete (it’s not even auto tuned!!) 2. Matt Gresham (B) Really solid, though I feel we’ve heard his exact voice a lot of times 3. Matt Evans (B) Inconsistent but really interesting. I really look forward to his upcoming performances 4. Kirby Burgess (B-) I agreed with Guy and Boy’s notes at the end about how theatrical it was, but she has a great voice 5. Siala Robson (C-) Ik I am in the minority and kudos to her for doing an original, but thought that song was stupid. I felt I could hear that song on every wannabe SoundCloud rapper’s account 6. Emmagen Rain (D) I personally have trouble with young kid singers because they’re so green. Then she picked a song all about being angry and she has nothing to connect it too. Worst performance of the auditions so far
