  1. 1. Cami - my favorite contestant of all time 2. Ryleigh - iconic vibrato, style, and personality 3. Julia - such a unique and beautiful voice, I think she would have made it farther if she hadn't been in the same season as Cami 4. Anna - I might be the only person who loved her blind and battle as much as her other performances 5. Joanna - love her, is she indie though? 6. Zan - fantastic vocalist, I just never got invested in her for some reason
  2. Megan Danielle Madeline Consoer Larriah Jackson Michael Williams Hello Sunday (unpopular, but Mama Knows Best was freaking amazing)

  4. I haven't watched every season yet (no Maelyn, Addison, Danielle, etc) so this may change: Cami Clune Cassadee Pope Brynn Cartelli Kat Hammock Rose Short Christina Grimmie Megan Danielle Ryleigh Modig Gihanna Zoe Emily Ann Roberts HM Kyla Jade Katie Kadan Allegra Miles Anna Grace Livia Faith Julia Cooper Jaclyn Lovey
  5. Honestly, it's pretty much Cam > Gihanna > everyone else, but here goes: 1. Cam A near-flawless performance. He came to slay, as usual. 2. Gihanna This song was either going to be a capital-m Moment for her or a huge fail, and I'm so glad it was the former! She killed this. 3. Pia Super strong, if not as exciting as she needed to be. She was awesome in the trio performance, though 4. Victor This should have been a slam dunk, but it was just fine. 5. Kenzie A little pitchy and disappointing, but only compared to how strong he's been before this. Definitely enough to get him the PV (even though it should be Gihanna) 6. Corey Shakier than usual, and the song choice didn't allow for as much emotion. Still, he leaves it all on the stage, and that counts for something 7. Rachel A few impressive moments, but messy overall. 8. Dana Yikes. She deserved the PV last week, so I hoped she would get it now, but this wasn't it. 9. Jordan Vocally he was better than Dana and Rachel, but I totally forgot about him, which might be worse
  6. Snowflake Cam Anthony Fantastic all around Gihanna Zoe Corey Ward Dana Monique Amazing vocalist (so-so performer) Kenzie Wheeler Great at some point Jordan Matthew Young (in the POs) Victor Solomon (only in his blind - I hope they give him gospel this time around!) Good Rachel Mac - She's had an amazing growth arc, but so has Gihanna, and I like Gihanna's tone much more Pia Renee Should have been here Ryleigh Modig! Anna Grace
  7. Ryleigh: pov >> Use Somebody > It Will Rain > driver`s license > when the party`s over Pete: Can`t Find My Way Home > Have A Little Faith In Me > Before You Go > We Belong >>>>> Speechless Jose: At this Moment > Talking to the Moon > Superstition > You Say Zae: Falling > Electric Love >>> Rewrite the Stars >>>>>> When I Look at You Zania: If I Were Your Woman > Emotions > Sweet Love >>>>>>>>>>> Dangerous Woman Devan: Stuck with U >> Hard Place > Sign of the Times >> Shape of My Heart Andrew: I Won`t Give Up > Adore You >> Gravity >>> Put Your Records On Anna: Let Her Go > If I Die Young > my future > You Know I`m No Good
  8. Yikes 17. Devan: Picked an absurdly easy song and still couldn't stay on pitch. Even if I weren't mad about Savanna this would be dead last. 16. Zania: A mess, so disappointing. 15. Andrew: Poor Andrew got bussed with the song choice, and those high notes didn't help. 14. Zae: Rough all around. Decent 13. Jose: Just meh. 12. Pete: Solid as always, but a little karaoke. 11. Victor: I think he was solid vocally but I couldn't hear him? Anyway, good performance but he still hasn't lived up to the promise of his blind 10. Pia: Great vocal, but a little boring. She didn't have a moment, and she needed to Good 9. Rachel Mac: I wasn't a fan of all of her choices, but this was good. Not as polished as her KO though 8. Corey: Had a few rough parts, but when he was good, he was great 7. Ryleigh: I love her tone, and the song was perfect for her, but some parts still felt a little off? Anyway, the best Team Legend performance by a mile Beautiful 6. Kenzie: This wasn't the most exciting song for him, but even so his vocals are undeniable. That tone! 5. Gihanna: She lost control a little at the end, but the beginning was so good, she's still in my top 5 of the night. Her growth arc is so underrated. 4. Jordan: I can't believe I'm ranking Jordan so high. The song choice was perfect, his performance was controlled and passionate. His experience is definitely shining through! 3. Anna Grace: Gorgeous, haunting, and controlled. Exactly what I've been wanting from her. SLAYED 2. Cam: His worst performance so far, but that's just a testament to how good he is. He slayed this. 1. Dana: QUEEN.

  12. I'll vote for the best performance, with some consideration to body of work. So most likely Savanna or Carolina, but I'm open to being surprised by Emma or Devan.
  13. Great: 1. Corey: He's so emotionally connected it's scary. If it weren't for Kenzie and the country vote, I'd put money on him being in the finale. 2. Pia: Super controlled, gorgeous performance, and of course emotional. This was a breakout for her. 3. Dana: She killed it, as always. Maybe not her most exciting performance, but her worst is better than most people's best. 4. Ryleigh: She didn't sound quite as good as she did in rehearsal, and it wasn't the song I'd pick for her, but her head voice vibrato is so lovely. She deserved the triple steal. Decent: 5. Victor: There was nothing wrong with this performance, but he's losing frontrunner status to me. He's just not bringing it the way he should at this stage. 6: Ciana: I liked this performance more than other people, it seems. It certainly wasn't perfect, but she swung for the fences and showed a lot of potential. She deserved to lose to Pia, but she also deserved a steal way more than Andrew imo. 7. Jordan: His vocals were good, but he weirdly wasn't connecting with the song at all, even though he had a very personal and sad story to go along with it. I wish Ethan had given Blake a reason to pick him, because he's a much more interesting performer overall. Decent performance and terrible song choice: 8. Pete: This song was so wrong for him, it was almost comical, but he did a fine job considering. 9. Ethan: This reminded me of his blind - it didn't showcase the best (read: deepest) parts of his voice, and his inexperience showed. A huge disappointment after his Battle performance. Not quite there: 10. Andrew: Super pitchy and whispery at the beginning, but then he almost redeemed himself with the high notes. 11. Gean: He seemed really nervous, which caused some pitch problems, and the song didn't go anywhere. His tone is so unique, but based on this performance he deserved to go home. 12. Keegan: Extremely pitchy and off the whole time. He has a nice tone, but I still think Nick should have stolen Durell.

  15. Team Kelly Ryleigh vs Gean Corey vs Savanna Anna Grace vs Ainae Gihanna vs Halley Kenzie vs JD (Kenzie was great, but JD was so outclassed it was just awkward) This is definitely the strongest bunch of battles! Some were stronger than others, but none were complete misfires Team John Zania vs Durell Victor vs Deion Rio vs Carolina Pia vs Christine *Still mad that we didn't see Ciana vs Denisha! It probably would be last on Team John, but it couldn't possibly have been worse than Raine vs Andrew Team Nick Dana vs Devan Rachel vs Bradley Jose vs Awari Lindsay vs Zae Raine vs Andrew Team Blake Ethan vs Avery Cam vs Emma Pete vs Savanna (might be higher if it weren't shortclipped!) Connor vs Aaron Jordan vs Keegan

  17. This was a weird night. I hated almost all of the song choices 1. Pete Mroz vs. Savanna Chestnut. Very pretty! Not super memorable, but it was a good song choice and they sounded good together, which is more than I can say for any of the other battles. I personally like Savanna's tone better, and I wonder if they shortclipped to cut her more impressive moments. But from what we saw Pete was the winner. 2. Victor vs. Deion. They both did a meh job compared to their blinds (although the choreo was adorable). The song choice really favored Deion, but Victor had more power and control. It also looks like Deion had pitch issues that were corrected by the producers. Kind of disappointing overall, but only because they both had such great auditions. 3. Rachel vs. Bradley. Super solid. They both stepped it up from blinds. Rachel still does a little too much vibrato for my taste, but if she keeps stepping it up each week, she could go far. 4. Anna Grace vs Ainae. The song was too low and mature for them (why would you pair two ethereal singers and then not give them an ethereal song?), but I thought they both did a great job with what they were given. Ainae clearly connected to the song a little more, but Anna Grace was more impressive vocally. 5. Kenzie vs. JD. Kenzie had the best individual performance by a landslide. He'll probably win the whole thing. JD did fine, but the mismatch made the battle awkward - he was clearly cannon fodder. 6. Rio vs Carolina. Carolina started a little shaky, then got a lot better by the end. Rio was great throughout. I'm surprised either of them did as well as they did - the song choice was super weird and the arrangement was terrible. 7. Raine vs Andrew. Well, this was a head-scratcher. If Nick was determined to pick Raine no matter how badly she did, then why did he pick a song that is so clearly in Andrew's pocket? I'm shocked they didn't montage this. Anyway, I like Raine, but Andrew clearly won, and deserved the steal.
  18. From the seasons I've seen: S17: Team Gwen - Rose Short vs Jessie Lawrence "Can't Feel My Face" Team Legend - Katie Kadan vs Destiny Rayne "Tiny Dancer" S18: Team Nick - Allegra Miles vs Michael Williams "How Will I Know" Team Kelly - Micah Iverson vs Gigi Hess "Someone You Loved" Team Kelly - Megan Danielle vs Samantha Howell "Top of the World" S19: Team Gwen - Payge Turner vs Lauren Frihauf "If the World Was Ending" Team Gwen - Carter Rubin vs Larriah Jackson "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" S20 (so far): Team Kelly - Ryleigh Modig vs Gean Garcia "pov" Team Blake - Ethan Lively vs Avery Roberson "Just Got Started Lovin' You" Out of these, my favorites are Allegra vs Michael and Payge vs Lauren. Also, Gwen and Kelly have the best battles!
  19. Great 1. Corey vs Savanna: The only ones who had real chemistry tonight. They sounded like a duo. Good 2. Zania vs Durell: They were good! Not a super memorable battle, but they both had beautiful vocals. Nick should have stolen Durell. Meh 3. Cam vs Emma: Their harmony sounded good in parts, but Cam is just so much stronger, it was a little awkward. A super weird choice for a save. 4. Gihanna v Halley: The song choice was weird for both of them, but Gihanna ended up killing it. Halley was pretty off - it sounded like she was much better in rehearsals. Her whistle note was beautiful, though. Weird AF 5. Zae vs Lindsay: I guess this is an unpopular opinion, but I didn't like Lindsay's performance at all - I felt like she was screaming. I could barely hear Zae, but thought he deserved the win. 6. Jordan vs Keegan: Truly bizarre song choice for both of them, but Jordan still sounded great. Keegan's high notes were good, but he sounded thin overall. I'm surprised Nick decided to steal him. Unjustly montaged Ciana vs Denisha: Seriously? I don't care how bad it was - it couldn't have been worse/weirder than Keegan vs Jordan. At least release the full performance on YouTube!
  20. I'm a new viewer, and only now catching up on previous seasons. But here are my favorites: S20 (so far): Cam "Lay Me Down" / Ryleigh and Gean "pov" S19: Cami "Skinny Love" / Carter "You Say" S18: Allegra and Michael "How Will I Know"
  21. Great Ryleigh vs. Gean - This battle blew me away. It's hard for a female vocalist to live up to Ariana, and Ryleigh killed it. Gean was also amazing and deserved the steal. Ethan vs. Avery - This was disgustingly charming. Avery is the better vocalist but Ethan is a better performer, and the song played to his strengths. Ethan took it for me, but they were both great, and I was surprised Blake didn't pick Avery for strategic purposes. Good Dana vs Devan - Dana was fantastic, and Devan acquitted himself well against her. I don't know if he was the best strategic choice for the four-way Knockout, but he certainly earned it in terms of his hard work. Connor vs Aaron - Connor surprised me in this one. They were both good vocally, but Connor left it all on the stage and gave the better performance. Their version was fun overall, but not as great as Levi's performance in S18 Not quite there Awari vs Jose - This was a truly bizarre song choice. It didn't really suit either of them, and Carter murdered this song literally three months ago. They both seemed nervous and had pitch issues, but I would have gone with Awari. His tone is more appealing, and he has more room to grow. Pia vs Christine - These two had completely different styles and didn't mesh at all. I also don't think the song choice was great - Brandy's tone is more ethereal than either of them. But Pia outsung Christine for sure.
  22. Team John: Victor vs Deion "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by The Temptations Ciana vs Carolina "Rain on Me" by Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga Pia vs Christine "Come See About Me" by The Supremes Rio vs Denisha "Stay" by Rihanna and Mikky Ekko Zania vs Durell "A Whole New World" by Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle Team Kelly: Kenzie vs JD "Hurt" by Johnny Cash Corey vs Savanna W "Just Give Me a Reason" by Pink and Nate Ruess Anna vs Ryleigh "Lovely" by Billie Eilish and Khalid Gihanna vs Ainae "Have You Ever" by Brandy Halley vs Gean "Lucky" by Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz Team Nick: Dana vs Awari "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner and Ike Turner Lindsay vs Raine "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" by James Brown Zae vs Andrew "Story of My Life" by One Direction Jose vs Devan Rachel vs Bradley "I Run to You" by Lady Antebellum Team Blake: Cam vs Keegan "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars Pete vs Aaron "Amazed" by Lonestar Emma vs Savanna C "Girl Crush" by Little Big Town Avery vs Ethan "Die a Happy Man" by Thomas Rhett Jordan vs Connor "Fire and Rain" by James Taylor
  23. Personal taste and strategy are pretty different for me! But here's who I would have picked with both in mind (and assuming I wouldn't get all of them): Episode 1: Kenzie, Cam, Corey, Victor Episode 2: Carolina, Zae Episode 3: Ryleigh, Ciana, Durell, Avery Episode 4: Gihanna, Deion Episode 5: Anna Episode 6: none I also loved Raine, Halley, and Savanna C's performances, but I'm not sure how far they'll go in the show. I might have turned for them if my team wasn't filling up.
