Voice Madness

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With 18 seasons, and it being off season..I thought it might be fun to take a look back at some of the best Voice performances..and in a March Madness format (since we didn't get that tournament either..) Hopefully there is a lot of participation. 

 

Couple of notes

  • Instead of "North" "South" "East" and "West" regions, The coaches with the most performances will be the bracket side. They are: Adam, Blake, Xtina, Usher
  • I put a limit of 3 performances per contestant for a few reasons. Biggest one is I'm hoping to get performances that represented the show..not just a few contestants.
  • These are all LIVE performances. This type of thing might be fun to do with Blinds as well - but it's not fair to compare blinds to live.
  • One original made the cut
  • It took a little time for me to come up with this - and I tried my best to include the best performances based on sales/reviews/viewer response (IE..what did this performance lead to on the show). And since I've been watching the show since season 3 (regularly since season 4)..I've got a lot of knowledge of the performances. But like March Madness - I'm sure people will disagree. I probably left out performances I shouldn't have..and I'm sure there will be disagreement over seed placement too. (That being said, there were a few performances I intended to put in, but were no longer available anywhere online. So..if one of your favorite performances is missing - that might be the reason) 
  • On this...it was hard. 🙂 There were so many amazing performances, once I started thinking of them all I was way over 64..so..don't take offense if your favorite is a lower seed. It was very difficult to place all of these performances. 
  • Like what is supposed to happen in the March Madness tournament, I created the seeds by first ranking all of the performances. So, the four #1s were the top 4 performances. And like the tournament, I placed seeds like an S curve. So in the same bracket, of what I ranked as the best #1, will have the worst #2 (and best #3, and worst #4 etc..) Adam had the most performances, so his bracket will have the overall #1, Usher had the least amount of the four, so he got the weakest #1. 

 

Interestingly, my #1 seeds were easy. I'll post the seeds before creating the bracket to begin. 

 

My plan is to post "verses" videos (#1 faces #16..etc) and have people vote, so we have a group decision over the best performance of all time. Hopefully this is fun for everyone. 

 

In my next post, I'll reveal the Performances and seeds.

Voted. The only iconic performances for me in this group are Matthew's Hallelujah, Kimberly's What's Up and Chris B's Rhythm Nation.

Christina vs. Laith is the only one I really struggled with, but I did manage to eventually make up my mind and vote.

Voted.  Some really good performances here.  Wasn't as easy to decide as I thought it might be.

Tessanne vs Maelyn and Chris vs Katie are the only ones I didn't really NEED to watch again to decide who to vote for, but I rewatched all of them again to be 100% sure since all pairs had at least one performances I haven't seen in a REALLY long time.

 

Even still some were really hard to decide. I'm looking froward to seeing what happens.

I just looked over the next three "teams" and I already see multiple matches that are going to hurt to choose between performers, but I think I know how I'm going to handle most of the remaining top 64.

 

but putting Amber vs. Alisan, Jacquie vs. Rose, and Juliet vs.Josh should all qualify as "cruel and unusual punishment"

the way the snake seeding works actually ends up with Maelyn and Tessanne being the closest two performances in the ranking.

 

imo, they’re hard to rank anyway. Two vocalists that are essentially flawless..and if I didn’t put a limit on performances it’s likely all of their live performances would

have made it on the list..but these two performances are Marley “great, but not their best...” I’m not voting (because I did the ranking), but it’s super close for me.

 

was literally the difference of one note for me that put Tessanne above Maelyn

The difficult ones are Tessane VS Maelyn , Kymberli VS Chris and Katie VS Chris but I had to give it to Tessane , Chris B and Chris J due to their supperior vocals

Then vote!

 

I'm excited for this album drop. I’ve wanted Taylor to give folk a try since “Safe and Sound.” (Plus Bon Iver...) she’s a great writer, hoping for a more adult sound with this.

Results:

 

First of all, participation was amazing. We had 37 votes! We almost had two major upsets, but overnight votes changed things. Funny enough for any college basketball fans - our one major upset was the 5/12 seed. Katie Kadan defeated Chris Jamison..which is where you often see the upset during March Madness. 

 

Winners.....

#1 Seed: Matthew Schuler - Hallelujah 

#2 Seed: Kimberly Nichole - What’s Up 

#3 Seed: Chloe Kohanski - Total Eclipse of the Heart 

#4 Seed: Danielle Bradbery - Please Remember Me 

#12 Seed: Katie Kadan - I’m Going Down 

#6 Seed: Addison Agen - A Case of You 

#7 Seed: Christina Grimmie - Hold On, We’re Going Home 

#9 Seed: Maelyn Jarmon - Hallelujah

 

Which means, when #TeamAdam bracket faces off again , it will be...

#1 Seed: Matthew Schuler - Hallelujah vs. #9 Seed: Maelyn Jarmon - Hallelujah

#2 Seed Kimerbly Nichole - What's Up vs. #7 Seed: Christina Grimmie - Hold On, We're Going Home

#3 Seed Chloe Kohanski - Total Eclipse of the Heart vs. #6 Seed: Addison Agen - A Case of You

#4 Seed: Danielle Bradbery - Please Remember Me vs. #12 Seed: Katie Kadan

 

A lot of interesting matchups there..

We have a battle of the same song and #1 vs. #2 from the same season

 

I'll be posting the #TeamChristina Bracket soon..

 Its obvious that people voted for their favs no matter how good the others were , I don't know what IDFs see in Maelyn , Tessanne was way better than her and also in Sawyer VS Addison people voted for Addison while Sawyer was the clear winner and That's why I won't be surprised if Maelyn beats Mathew even though Mathew's version of Hallelujah is one the best performance in the Voice's history

This was even more easy I don't even need to watch all of these performances cz I have seen all of them alot of times before , the only match up that I watched was JOSH VS DANIELLE . 

The most easiest was JORDAN VS addison , JORDAN slayed her but after seeing the results of #Team Adam I doubt that he will be able to beat Addison
