  1. Sydney was so robbed. I'm still mad she lost her battle AND got montaged. I didn't hate her and Madi's studio of Riptide, but I think a slower and more emotional song would've fit them so much better.
  2. Apart from Nick Hagelin, Jamal Corrie, Alex Kandel, and Sam Behymer, who else was pretty widely disliked on the Voice?
  3. LMFAO NOT SAM I think she was the absolute peak of the indie girl cursive "we have bäñânæs and ävåćadöęš" voice trend taken to its max. Her audition has the same energy as Halsey singing in the mall that one time.
  4. Her studio was amazing! It was absolutely the live that was terrible lol.
  5. After relistening to Nick Hagelin's audition for a 10th time, I have officially decided that I actually like it a lot and will not tolerate any slander of that performance in particular (any other performance of his is fair game). I'm so sorry guys
  6. Why does Carter have more votes than India? I have literally no recollection of India's performance, but there was no way it was worse than Carter's
  7. I actually liked Nick's audition a bit It was really "unique voice battle fodder" tier, a la someone like Jamal Corrie or Mark Atlas. The fact that he got multiple turns though and made it through multiple rounds of the lives.... His voice is so strange and awkward that I uh don't think it's meant for music. There's maybe a single song his voice would've sounded not terrible on and it just happened to be Electric Feel, which he got in his battle. His entire run on the show still amazes me. Anyways, on the topic of people who shouldn't have gotten chair turns, anyone remember Alex Kandel from Season 9, where Gwen and Adam idiotically turned after 0.5 seconds before realizing that she was terrible? I remember Gwen very clearly looking happy after realizing Adam also turned and Adam very clearly breathing a sigh of relief after Alex didn't pick him. They both gave her tons of criticism and Adam didn't even give a single reason for her to pick him, only for her to get montaged and eliminated in the battles.
  8. Yeah after seeing what happened to Julia Cooper last season on the Voice, I knew Casey was getting the boot.
  9. If Rachel flops and gives a performance on par with her audition and Dana kills a power ballad and has the pimp spot, then Dana will get it. If Rachel doesn't flop, she'll probably get it, since she has a bigger fanbase.
  10. Rachel is amazing and killed it and is easily my second favorite in the competition (her performance of Rainbow was SO GOOD), but everyone on Team Nick knew that PV spot belonged to Queen Dana
  11. Not necessarily robbed, but I’ll never forgive Zania getting bussed. There were zero reasons for that woman to be singing Ariana Grand.
  12. AMAZING: 1. Dana Monique: She won the night BY FAR. Amazing song choice, amazing energy, amazing everything. Dana has had plenty of amazing performances, and this was somehow better than all of them. 10/10 2. Rachel Mac: I hate ranking Team Nick members so high, but Rachel also killed it. Gracee was definitely shaking after that performance. I love her redemption arc and will be voting for her throughout this whole thing! 9/10 3. Cam Anthony: He hasn't had a single bad performance. I personally liked his battle and KO a little more, but just by a smidge. 8/10 GREAT: 4. Pia Renee: Her performance got a lot of hate here for some reason, but I personally don't agree? I think she had a lot of beautiful moments and I personally preferred this to her KO. She was definitely deserving of the praise she got from the coaches. 8/10 5. Victor Solomon: Another one that IDF hated, but I personally loved. It's true that he got bandzilla'd, but I personally don't want to fault him for that since he still sounded great to me despite that. 8/10 6. Ryleigh Modig: Overall really solid. Perfect song choice great execution, no complaints at all. 8/10 7. Jordan Matthew Young: I LOVED the second half of this performance. I'm only putting him a bit low because I didn't really like the beginning. It was definitely one of his best performances though! 7.5/10 8. Anna Grace: I didn't love her battle or KO, so I was really happy for her to do so amazing this time around. I'm just a little bit bored of all the pop songs from her and I really want her to do something a little more folk-sy because she would kill it. 7.5/10 GOOD: 9. Corey Ward: This was a pretty par for the course performance for him. It wasn't a breakout moment by any means, but he didn't flop, which is what matters most at this point in the show. 7/10 10. Gihanna Zoe: Another solid performance. I was so happy when I heard the song choice, and although she didn't quite live up to what I was hoping for, it definitely wasn't a flop. 6.5/10 11. Joe Figueroa Jr.: He had his fair share of pitchy moments, but his beautiful moments overpowered the bad ones in my mind. I think he looked at the bus, spread out his arms, and charged into it head on. He definitely made a nice thud before going home, but definitely got bussed. Still the best one out of Team Nick's mediocre trio though. 6.5/10 MEH: 12. Kenzie Wheeler: This was easily my least favorite from him. I thought he had a lot of weak moments in the first half and the second half was a lot better, but I still don't think he's deserving of being a frontrunner by any means. 6/10 13. Devan Blake Jones: He was pretty smart in picking a pretty safe song and not swinging too hard like he did in his KO, but somehow he still dropped the ball? It wasn't a total flop IMO, but it definitely wasn't great either. 5.5/10 BAD: 14. Pete Mroz: I thought this performance was really boring, especially after some of the other ones we had that night. He's easily the weakest one on Team Blake in my eyes. 5/10 15. Andrew Marshall: Poor Andrew literally got Jaclyn'ed, especially after following Dana. 4/10 16. Zae Romeo: His KO was my favorite performance of the season, but this was so bad.... Total flop. 3/10 17. Zania Alake: I loved Zania so much pre-lives and she was probably one of my top 5 going into this, but she definitely got bussed... This just wasn't it. 1/10
  13. I'm so mad that she got so much hate for that. Sa'Rayah absolutely killed her KO. I ADORED the arrangement, especially with the early on key change. I'll forever associate Halloween with her slayage and with that crazy KO night as a whole. Michael definitely did great in his KO too, and his improvement was super impressive, but I definitely get why Alicia chose Sa'Rayah over him.
  14. Happy Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, whether you're a member of the AAPI community or not!! If anyone has a favorite AAPI Voice alum, let's give them some recognition here!! (BONUS POINTS IF THEY NEVER GOT MONTAGED!)
  15. This doesn't surprise me unfortunately, especially given how messy her YT cover was (if that was her best take than I can't imagine what it was like in person...). Honestly though, no matter what she did, she probably had no chance against a powerhouse like Mandi, so I guess she probably did the right thing in the situation.
  16. To anyone that saw Anaya Cheyenne's KO: Did she attempt any whistle notes (and did she hit them?) Did she flop? (Also how much better was Mandi than her?) Anaya was my favorite in the auditions and battles that season, but after listening to her Praying performance on Youtube, I can see how she might've dropped the ball on stage.
  17. Late response, but I don't see Nick having a questionable pick?? Probably Dana, but maybe Rachel, will get the PV (the only discrepancy with like a 0.00001% chance of happening would be if Jose somehow blew the roof off the building with a heavy-hitting Christian song and won over Minivan's heart, but what more can he do since he's already done "You Say" and "Break Every Chain"?). Nick would easily save the remaining Dana or Rachel over Andrew or Jose. Nick has an extremely personal connection with Dana it seems (based on the clips of him and her interacting in the battle rehearsals) and he should feel lucky to have her on his team. Nick also clearly loves Rachel, as he picked her over Zae and consistently hypes her up. Nick already eliminated Andrew once and I don't think Andrew has the capability of a showstopping performance, so I think he's DOA. Nick doesn't seem too attached to Jose. From what the spoilers describe, he BARELY picked Jose over Raine and I have a feeling he probably regrets that decision. Nick is easily swayed by the other coaches and with Kelly and John rooting against Jose in the KOs and Blake likely favoring Rachel to Jose, I see Nick being swayed into picking Rachel if she ends up not getting the PV. The real questionable decision will probably be from John. Kelly CAN'T make a questionable decision, since she has the strongest team and none of them are bad choices. I think Blake's team is probably pretty set too, with Cam getting the PV and Pete getting saved by Blake. As for John, who's known for bad decisions, I can see Ryleigh or Zania killing it tomorrow, but him picking Pia or Victor over them due to favoritism, even if they give bad performances.
  18. S17 had mystifying battles so please do! The battles were so great that season, but why would they put all the good battles on later tapings
  19. I would say Rachel, since I'm worried about her abilities to perform live and against the nerves (we've seen her flop before so I hope it doesn't happen again), but Rachel is on an extremely uncompetitive team and she would probably have to get hit by a plane or break COVID guidelines for her spot to be taken by Jose or Andrew. I think Ryleigh could easily get bussed, but will make the best of what song she gets given. I'm most afraid that Gihanna or Zania will give a monotonous and/or unimpressive performance that won't resonate with voters.
  20. Agree 100% about Jose and Zae!! Anyways, my thoughts: Overrated: Anything by Allegra, especially Chandelier Anna Grace's KO (If I Die Young) Bradley and Rachel's battle (Your Song). It was good, but was it REALLY the best battle of the season and the only standing ovation worthy one??? The battles were pretty awful this year, but Zania vs Durrel, Rio vs Carolina, and Cam vs Emma were all better... Most of Emily Ann's most popular performances, like I Hope You Dance, Cowboy Take Me Away, and She's Got You (I preferred Keisha Renee, Destinee Quinn, and Charity Bowden and Josette Diaz's battle montage/studio recording to all of those 3 performances respectively). Tayler Green's KO of Time After Time (Micah won and it wasn't even a difficult decision?) Most performances by Kelsea Johnson (None of her performances just ever stood out to me? Sharane easily won in the KOs). Underrated: Anything by Jon Mero, especially his battle (I Wish It Would Rain) and the short clip of his KO (Blame It On The Boogie). Denisha Dalton's audition (Pillowtalk) Jackie Verna and Stephanie Skipper's battle (These Dreams) Anatalia Villaranda and Missy Robertson's battle (Tightrope) Halle Tomlinson's audition (and her battle against Belle Jewel, who was also underrated). Her performance of New York State of Mind (esp the studio) >>>> Steve Knill's audition (How did he only get a single turn and then get thrown away immediately in the battles????) Jules's audition (Ain't No Rest For the Wicked). Can't believe she got basically no love from IDF. Lilli Passero, One Up, Zach Seabaugh, Samuel Wilco, Autumn Turner, and Madeline Consoer just in general.
  21. I'll call the NBC tipline and let them know I spotted Kenzie at a superspreader party with everyone's favorite Voice alum M*rgan W*llen
  22. Gihanna's odds of beating Kenzie are about the same as Daniel Passino's were for beating Alisan Porter in the KOs in Season 10. I'm 100% team Gihanna though.
  23. I'm strongly biased due to my hate of (most) Maroon 5 songs, so I'll stay out of this conversation
  24. Totally random note but Alena D'amico illegally(?) recording and then publicly posting her battle that ended up getting montaged was such an interesting move. RAHDA also pointlessly recorded her KO, but not her battle. I'm still mad that RADHA and Foushee's battle has never resurfaced, because they're both two of my faves and I bet they killed that song.
