Season 19: Desz - Can We Talk

Season 18: CammWess - Say Something

Season 17: Rose Short - God's Country

Season 16: Maelyn Jarmon - The Scientist

Season 15: SandyRedd - River

Season 14: Kyla Jade - You Don't Own Me

Season 13: Chloe Kohanski - Landslide

 

A lot of powerhouses here, even though RnB/Soul isn't my favorite genre. They just tend to be the ones that have that ONE (or more) performance that just blows the roof off.

The other ones require more thought, but there is one I'm confident in:

Season 19: Cami Clune - "Skinny Love"

 

For the rest of the seasons, I didn't rank / rate the performances so it's harder. Additionally, I've only really had a snowflake for two seasons in recent memory: Season 18 w Allegra and 19 w Cami. Additionally, the fact that Cami's BA is by far my favorite performance of hers makes it easier. In previous seasons, there are just tons of great performances that I haven't rated so it's hard for me to sift through and find my favorite.

Is battle/duet to be included here? Or solo performance only?

My overall favorites each season. Some seasons (S9-S14) are mostly factored in by replay-ability. I have favorites for the other seasons too but S9 is definitely where I started to feel the show shift into what it is now so I usually place that one as the cutoff mark. Maybe it's because I joined IDF that season lol

 

S19: DeSz - Can We Talk

S18: Zan Fiskum - Blowin' in the Wind

S17: Katie Kadan - I'm Goin' Down (so many options this season...)

S16: Maelyn Jarmon - Fields of Gold

S15: SandyRedd - River

S14: WILKES - One Headlight

S13: Noah Mac - Electric Love (so so so so so so so so so many options, but this is a sentimental favorite lol)

S12: Vanessa Ferguson - If I Were Your Woman (so so so so so so so so many options once again... this is definitely the one I keep coming back to)

S11: Top Model Tyra Banks GIF - TopModel TyraBanks Savage - Discover & Share GIFs

S10: Katie Basden - Gypsy

S9: Amy Vachal - A Sunday Kind of Love

I love how literally everyone so far in this thread mentioned SandyRedd's "River" as the best of S15.

My hype for her faded extremely quickly after her audition. I thought she fairly lost her KO, and I would have preferred Patrique to be saved in the playoffs. But her audition was a damn concert.

She was consistently wronged on the show lol. Easily one of the top 5 auditions of all time and while she never topped it, she gave consistently strong performances. And then she lost to a girl who didn’t even turn a chair in blinds. Like of all the robberies this show’s given us, her elimination was preposterous.

Even though I didn´t care for Sandy by that point, that did suck. And I always thought the Comeback Stage was a sham. And people were whining and calling the show rigged when Lyneea got eliminated by DeAndre, and I´m like " She wasn´t even supposed to be on the lives in the first place".

I wasn’t a fan of her live performances, but the fact that she placed 13th in the Top 13 when you have contestants like Reagan or Dave in the competition is disgusting.
