Top 10 Knockout/Cross battle of All Time

Recommended Posts

I'll be honest, this thread is inspired by the top 10 audition and I'm a big fan of knockout round lol. Including cross battle cause there's no knockout that season. Season 6 is an exception cause there were battle round 2 instead of knockout. Can be personal preference cause why not haha. 

 

This is my top 10 :

Brynn Cartelli - Here Comes Goodbye

Chloe Kohanski - Landslide

Emily Luther - Glitter in The Air

Amanda Brown - Paris (Oh La La) 

Toia Jones - Crazy in Love (robbed queen still hurts) 

Maelyn Jarmon - Mad World

Jean Kelley - Chandelier

Chevel Shepherd - Travelin Soldier

Kyla Jade - You Don't Own Me

Hannah Huston - House of The Rising Sun

I loved everyone in team Blake that season, but it sucks that Michael was cut so early, I would have picked him over Dave in that moment, even tho Stuck on You is also one of my favorite performances. I wanted to see Michael sing some Eric Clapton or some SRV.

The studio version was so good. Shame they didn´t show the whole perfomance. I still think that the KO montage hurt his chances of getting a PV.

Agree with you on that. I listened to the studio version a while back and it just makes me more sad he didn't go farther.

I'm pretty sure Blake was planning to save whichever between Michael and Dave didn't get the PV alongside Kirk Jay; he didn't expect Chris to get the PV over either of them and had to pick in the moment and country generally does slightly better than blues with the public. 

 

My top KOs (most recent season to oldest)

  • Toneisha Harris - "Diamonds"
  • Max Boyle - "when the party's over"
  • Michael Lee - "Whipping Post"
  • Jackie Foster - "Bring Me to Life"
  • Chloe Kohanski - "Landslide" 
  • Joe Maye - "Earned It"

  • Toia Jones - "Crazy in Love"
  • Taylor Phelan - "Rather Be"

  • Cole Vosbury - "Let Her Go"
  • Michelle Chamuel - "Raise Your Glass"
