Honestly, it IS not even close. Outperformed maybe, but that doesn't mean he would get outvoted. I honestly can't see an outcome where Kenzie doesn't win at this point.

Him not being on Team Blake makes him lose some of his voting edge since Blake won't rally his country crowd in Kenzie's favor, which is why I think that if one of the other heavy hitters like Corey, Rachel, Zania, or Cam (with Blake's full support) does well enough they could pull a win over him.  Out of all of those the person that probably has the most chance is Cam if Blake really puts all of his support on him.

he's already doing that by giving Kenzie high praises after every performance. The Hoot also had competition in S17, and he wasn't on Team Blake, yet he still handily won.

I think you've got it wrong.  Kelly has a larger, more active fanbase than Blake.  Country is the genre of choice at TV and prior to Kelly joining the show Blake probably had a fan advantage across all genres but since Kelly arrived she's won the majority of head to head battles with Blake (and everyone else) with "winning" country singers.  Kelly brings a larger, more balanced, multi-genre fan base to the voting than Blake.  Blake has won more times than Kelly because he's been there 13 more seasons not because he's more popular or a better coach.

Ah haven't seen that season, this is the first season I've watched since S15 lmao.  Yea that's fair, if Blake wants to win he definitely needs to start considering Kenzie as a huge threat to him getting votes and throwing all of his support on Cam.

I haven't seen this show in some time so my assumptions could definitely be outdated but I thought Blake was the one who's had a lot of control of the country votes.  The last season I've seen, 15, was when Kelly beat Blake with a country artist but I attributed that more to Chevel being a lot better than Blake's 2 country artists more than Kelly being more popular but others have mentioned that other people have won with country artists in later seasons.  I agree on the country being the genre of choice point and that Kenzie has enough talent to win though.

1. Cam Anthony - wow! He nailed that, proof you can still have a huge moment with an overdone song, everything was spot on and I loved all of his choices, very good presence, nothing but praise. Tbh, I expected him to do well but not this well, dang!

2. Savanna Woods - amazing, probably my favourite of the season, I think it took her some time to find her footing but when she did, my God, did she soar, so different than anything we see usually and so excellent. Head and shoulders above others in th 4-way

3. Zania Alake - the same issue as Savanna in the beginning, ending was excellent and the arrangement is cool, she is just simply less my style and not as unique as Savanna

4. Rachel Mac - very interesting, some off moments but she connected well and the arrangement really allowed her to have a moment

5. Kenzie Wheeler - so effortlessly powerful, like damn, nice range but still looks kinda awkward and his song choice really limited him in having a cover me up moment, probably should be higher than Rachel but it's just due to prefence

6. Gihanna Zoe - she was good and it did feel like a unique take on the song, maybe she didn't have enough time to build it but it just didn't come together as well as it should've for a vocalist like her

7. Zae Romo - tbh, the first time he impressed me, I think the arrangement suited him, he had some cool moments and choices towards the end

8. Anna Grace - loved how connected she was and it was a cool, unique take on a song, maybe just not the most interesting, nothing wrong with it but simply didn't blow me away like those above her

9. Rio Doyle - she did the best she could've with the song, cool tone, nice presence but they really didn't even give her a fighting chance against Zania

10. Devan Blake Jones - I wouldn't say bad but his lane is filled with great talent this year and he just doesn't compare

11. Carolina Rial - too big of a song for her and too little time for her to build it, at least she was tasteful in her choices this time around

12. Emma Caroline - nice tone, it got worse towards the end, both the presence and the vocals, some nice moments, but many off moments too

13. Avery Roberson - cool deep tone, unlike Kenzie he had a pefect song choice for this setting but just... yikes, it only got worse towards the end

14. Connor Christian - yikess, I'm sorry.. saying anything after such an obvious bus is beyond unnecessary

RIP me

1. Savanna (So happy we have someone like her this season. Juliet vibes)

2. Cam (This was crazy. The scatting was overkill)


Fantastic

3. Gihanna (Tone and song choice :wub:)

4. Zania (The beginning was a bit off but everything else was so good that I have to put it here)

5. Anna (This is the first time I paid attention to the lyrics of this song, so props)

 

Really solid

6. Rachel (This was great, but this night was so stacked omg)

7. Zae (Not sure how to feel about the arrangement but it was a really good vocal)

8. Kenzie (Hate the song choice but he sang the hell out of it)

 

Ok

9. Carolina (Her best performance, for sure. She doesn't need the vocal tricks to stand out. That said, this had its iffy moments)

10. Rio (Bad song choice aside, I thought this was pretty decent)

 

Meh

11. Devan (This went off the rails on the second half)

12. Emma (Far from great. A bit messy)

 

Nope

13. Avery (Hot mess)

14. Connor (TPTB was brutal here, lmao)

Wow

1. Anna Grace - Seems to be an unpopular opinion, but Anna had my fav KO of the episode. She kept me enamored from beginning to end. I felt every word she sang and this is her best vocal performance by FAR.

2. Cam Anthony - He did amazing as expected. Definitely one to watch out for once lives come. That a capella opening is *chef's kiss*.

3. Zania Alake - Here's another singer that made me feel every word! She WANTED to be that person's woman.

 

Great

4. Savanna Woods - Savanna is my favorite contestant this season. I wish I could've liked this as much as I wanted to. I still loved it, but not as much as the 3 above.

5. Gihanna Zoë - FINALLY! She was one of my pre-season favorites based off her IG covers and this is her first truly excellent performance imo.

6. Zae Romeo - Strange arrangement, but I didn't hate it? His vocals are amazing though. Much better than his battle.

 

Good

7. Kenzie Wheeler - Very strong performance. He sang the hell out of that song.

8. Rachel Mac - Girl did good, but she got overshadowed by all the other great performances this episode. Props to her improvement though! The ending was incredible.

 

Decent

9. Carolina Rial - I mean, she's a terrific vocalist, but it's hard to not sound screechy on this song's chorus. Her audition is still her best.

10. Rio Doyle - She actually sounded pretty good, the song/performance just went nowhere.

 

Meh

11. Emma Caroline - She was messier than Devan but her tone was more pleasant to my ears.

12. Devan Blake Jones - Key is way too high. His falsetto is just not strong enough to sell the high parts. He could learn a thing or two from D.R. King.

13. Avery Roberson - Poor Avery, he looked and sounded so defeated.

 

Trainwreck

14. Connor Christian - Must I say anything?

1. Gihanna: Gorgeous tone, and some amazing belts.

2. Zania: She came to slay, and she did. She began off with a bit of power, and gradually increased, before slaying the hell out of everyone. I can't find a critique for this one.

3. Rachel: Like Gihanna, I can't say she was vocally flawless, but she sure was captivating. 

4. Carolina: Some of the notes she hit in her knockout were NOT easy notes to hit, that's for sure. She also held her runs back, and that's good.

5. Savanna: Perfect song choice. It perfectly works with her voice, and if she won the 4-way KO, I would not be disappointed.

6. Zae: Very beautiful runs throughout, and he really steered the song in whatever direction he wanted it to go in.

7. Cam: Vocally perfect. I have nothing against him as a singer, because he is GOOD. However, I'm not as drawn to his performances as the 6 above him.

8. Anna: Such a ethereal and peaceful tone, but sometimes, she adds her falsetto in where it doesn't belong. "Sink me iiiinnnn the river" is a good example of that.

9. Kenzie: Country and guitars annoy me, but I understand the appeal.

10. Rio: She sounded nice at some points, but her deep and mysterious voice only works on songs that are deep and mysterious.

11. Emma: No confidence at all, but she does have a nice tone.

12: Devan: Lovely outfit, but not the best singing I'm afraid. The falsetto seemed screechy at some points, and his regular voice isn't a treat to listen to either.

13: Avery: Yeah, he can do much better. He had bad moments.

14: Connor: Eek

Ok I thought that since FloorWax is doing the ranking for the top 20, I decided to do this one, so we're both doing spreadsheets. Now, a few people had lists that didn't have 14 people, so they weren't counted. Meanwhile the rest were. Ok, it's time. I'll update this every 5 new people. There are currently 16 lists, so each point number was divided by 16 to get the average.

 

1st place gets 14 points, 2nd gets 13, 3rd gets 12, and so on...

 

1st: Cam with 200 points or an average of 12.5 points

2nd: Zania with 194 points or an average of 12.13 points

3rd: Savanna with 174 points or an average of 10.88 points

4th: Anna with 165 points or an average of 10.31 points

5th: Gihanna with 158 points or an average of 9.88 points

6th: Rachel with 157 points or an average of 9.81 points

7th: Zae with 142 points or an average of 8.88 points

8th: Kenzie with 119 points or an average of 7.44 points

9th: Carolina with 110 points or an average of 6.88 points

10th: Rio with 73 points or an average of 4.56 points

11th: Emma with 61 points or an average of 3.81 points

12th: Devan with 58 points or an average of 3.63 points

13th: Avery with 51 points or an average of 3.19 points

14th: Connor with 18 points or an average of 1.13 points

I'm late, BUT:

 

AMAZING:

1. Zae Romeo: I'm shocked people ranked him so low (really? CAROLINA above him?). I'm totally in love with his KO. It was a huge step up from his other performances IMO.

2. Zania Alake: She kills it every time and she killed it yet again. Total icon.

3. Rachel Mac: I had goosebumps throughout her whole performance! Even though Zae gave my favorite performance, I think Rachel's improvement was just as impressive. I hope Rachel continues to pick up steam throughout the lives, I would love for her to totally surprise us and win the whole thing.

4. Kenzie Wheeler: This was easily my favorite performance of his. Do I think he's the best vocalist this season? Do I think he deserves to win? No, not really. But he did a great job in his KO.

5. Cam Anthony: I docked him a bit because this song is such an obnoxiously cliche singing-show song, but he obviously killed it! Poor Connor didn't stand a chance.

 

GREAT:

6. Savanna Woods: This girl is way too good to have ended up in the 4-way KO. She steamrolled everyone else she was up against.

7. Gihanna Zoe: I love Gihanna, but this wasn't my favorite performance of hers.

 

MEH:

8. Emma Caroline: I hated this performance upon first listen, but after relistening, she actually did pretty okay. Her tone is so beautiful that I wouldn't mind if she wont the 4-way.

9. Anna Grace: I hate this song so much, so it definitely clouded my judgement, but even with my hatred of the song aside, I think she had a good amount of weak moments.

10. Devan Blake Jones: I really like Devan, but compared to everyone else in the competition, he doesn't stand much of a chance.

 

SHOULD'VE BEEN MONTAGED:

11. Rio Doyle: I was rooting for Rio so hard, but man... All I can say about this KO is that I'm mad hers got aired first because I have to skip through it every time I replay Zania...

12. Carolina: She butchered this song IMO. In particular, the last 30~ seconds of this song is such an amazing moment to show rawness and vulnerability, but she just sounded nasally and weak. I didn't connect at all.

13. Conor: This was so so so bad, but at least he didn't have a moment like Avery's failed attempt at falsetto.

14: Avery: Yikes. I actually feel really bad that a 4 chair turn like him couldn't win in either round, but after a performance like this, I can't act surprised...

1. Cam Anthony (The best performance of the Knockout)

2. Anna Grace (Beautiful Performance, I got Chills. I hope she pass the playoffs)

3. Carolina Rial (Powerful and worthy of a winner of 4-way knockout)

4. Savanna Woods (She killed it)

5. Emma Caroline ( This might be unpopular but her tone was so appealing to hear. No shock If she win 4-way knockout) 

6. Gihanna Zoe (Emotional and outstanding)

7. Rachel Mac (She is clearly a dark horse) 

8. Zae Romeo (He got his momentum back)

9. Zania Alake (She killed the song)

10. Devan Blake Jones (This is the first time I liked him, His best performance till date)

11. Kenzie Wheeler (This is his better performance than battles) 

12. Rio Doyle (She was good, but she was against a diva)

13. Avery Roberson (I was not expecting that he didn't deliver the performance as same as his blinds.)

14. Connor Christian (Seriously! It was all over the place)

 

 

- The 4-way knockout is so hard to predict this time. All three girls were outstanding but Devan also gave solid performance and Nick's fan base would help him to win, but I really hope that one of the girls will move on.
