if a contestant is likely to be referred to as a “screamer” by white grandmas on Facebook, then she’s more than likely going to end up being my snowflake

Now I’m interested  

Gracee, Joanna, Taryn all deserved better....

Idk if I "look for" a snowflake, rather than hearing/seeing them perform and being like "oh yas....I like him/her/them"

That said I usually ADORE when people flip songs (or sing one of my favorite songs) that immediately grabs my attention. Zan is one of my biggest snowflakes of all time and she's the perfect example for that. So is Chloé with "my future". Heck, this season JD was literally one of the more "meh" received contestants and it was one of the auditions I was looking for based on song choice. Obviously how they do with it affects the extent of which I support them but they do get points for singing one of my fav songs lol

Anyways, I feel like I enjoy who I enjoy. Usually it's from a similar genre each season (pop/indie/singer-songwriter, r&b/soul, alternative rock, country females) but there have been multiple exceptions, Sundance comes to mind. Their personality and vibe also play a huge part in who are my snowflakes because that's the way they catch ur attention on TV.

On top of the obvious (tone, artistry and decent vocals...) I also really appreciate a fresh song selection and the ability to surprise (Alisan going from Joni Mitchell to Janis Joplin, Pia’s KO this season...)

Definitely, I think that's the biggest factor to enjoy someone on the long run (I'd say Rose in recent history but there are many others)

I have brought this example multiple times (because I’m still salty about it) but Hannah might have been in my Top 5 favorite contestants ever with different song choices. On the other hand I don’t think I would have enjoyed Rose as much if she sang the typical diva songs.

I appreciate a strong vocalist who can sing on pitch anytime, even if they were bland(See Kenzie and Dana this season)

But that's only part of it.

 

They have to bring something different or at least a tone that connects with the song. I don't want someone who just sings words. They can be a country, R&B/Soul, pop singer, etc. Just bring something new to the table or at least something to believe you in the song's message. 

 

Obviously I'll have a bias to Indie/Alt/Folk girls(sometimes some boys too) but they also need to sing on pitch or else everything is turned off for me(Pitch is the most important in a vocal.)

 

So I guess like:

1. PITCH, PITCH, PITCH, sing on key or GTFO. I don't care how stylistic you are or if you are choosing one of my favorite songs, or an underrated masterpiece. Know how to sing or get lost.

2. Tone/Believability. An appealing or different tone is always welcome, I don't want a boring sound coming from your voice. 

3. Style/Genres/Arrangement - I don't really care on your type of style(unless if its cringe bro-country or hip-hop/rap) But being able to be your own artist and switch up your songs can go a long way for me.

Edit: Of course this includes emotion as well, if I wasn't clear enough.

 

Everything else is just bias preference(that's okay of course) I wouldn't mind listening to a old senior rocking it out, or a young pop kid belting, as long as you have the at least the Top 2 of my list.

 

Personality - To be honest, if you were an a**hole but had one of the best voices I heard, it would be hard for me to like or vote for you. However if you were against someone who had no sense of pitch and was the nicest person to exist, I'll have no choice but to vote for you. That may make me look like a b****, but I go for talent over all else.

After looking through my snowflakes...

 

Tone: A tone that I’m not a fan of will probably prevent me from enjoying a contestant, but a good tone isn’t enough for me to consider a contestant a snowflake. A lot of my snowflakes have, what I consider, some of the best tones in Voice history (Lauren, Addison, Chevel, etc.) However, without some other factors, I doubt I would still consider them snowflakes. ❌

 

Sing on pitch: Yes, this is incredibly important. However, if I become super invested in a contestant, a few pitchy performances won’t prevent them from being my snowflake (see Reagan. :giggle:✔️ 
 

Brings the house down: This is a tricky one for me. I have snowflakes that have a more subtle approach, but I have others that lay it all out vocally (namely Keisha and Hannah in some performances.) Given the fact that showstopper performances aren’t a requirement for me, I’m going to say no, they do not determine whether a contestant is a snowflake. ❌

 

Storytelling ability/emoting: YES. This is probably the choice I am most confident about. In order for me to really enjoy a contestant, I want to be able to feel something and connect to at least one of their performances. ✨ ✔️✔️
 

Flips songs: It’s cool to see a contestant do this, but will it decide whether or not they are a snowflake? No, especially since some new arrangements don’t work out so well. 😬 ❌

 

Good instrumental skills: Again, it’s cool to see, but it’s not a deciding factor. ❌

 

Appealing personality/attitude: Yes, definitely (though a certain snowflake of mine has been testing this.) If I can’t stand the contestant, they won’t be able to reach snowflake level of favoritism. ✔️
 

Good-looking: No, I judge on vocals and personality. If I think they look attractive, then that’s just a bonus. ❌

 

Preferred music genres: For the most part, yes. I’m open to having contestants who are outside of my preferred genres become my snowflake though, so I’m gonna say no, it’s not a deciding factor. ❌

 

Gender: No. ❌

 

Age: I tend to gravitate towards the younger contestants, but I’m open to having people of any age as my snowflakes. 😊 ❌

Someone with an appealing tone, can sing on pitch, conveys emotion, people in my preferred music genres, and something I probably only subconsciously look for- a good personality.

 

Sid Kingsley from last season had a great personality so following him on his socials was pretty fun. This season, I LOVE Savanna's "DGAF" attitude and high confidence that doesn't come off as arrogance.
