I think it's more likely that Cam is above Rachel because BK voted against Rachel and for Cam in one of the games, though it was on a performance-by-performance basis. I'll predict

 

1. Gihanna Zoë (BK interacting with her on instagram will help him decide this one, since the top 2 are tight)

2. Cam Anthony

3. Carolina Rial

4. Rachel Mac

5. Anna Grace

Cam follows him, though. 🧐

I have very similar thoughts to you on Anna:

- I thought her blind was a bit messy.

- I thought her battle was good! I thought she deserved her win over Ainae.

- I thought her KO was excellent!

- I thought her PO was her best performance; there were no runs that felt out of place like in her previous performances (really there was only one extra frill in her KO performance to me, but that breaks the tie b/w the two for me).

I agree on all this. She truly improved each round! ☺️

Even though I put Carolina as an option for the spot, I was expecting it to go to Anna or Rachel - this, as usual, was well-written (whether or not I agree with the ranking TBD, of course 😉).

:thumbsup:

Why was this clue lowkey genius? 🤣🤣
Nobody got the reason right, ahah.  

I think Anna is such a creative vocalist with hella interesting runs and a cool approach to her voice. That creativity definitely factors in and fosters that genreless quality. 
 

But because of that and because Billie Eilish is one of her favourite artists, I don’t think My Future was the best for her. Some of the runs she did were very creative and definitely unique to her. But there were also moments where it felt like imitation of style to me. (Some of the flips and holding vibrato) But because her and Billie have different approaches to their voices, the imitation didn’t work smoothly.
I think doing a song by someone she listens to a lot could have hindered her ability to be creative and change things up in a way that suited her and the song both. 
 

But other than that, Anna delivered us flawless vocals every time and I felt really involved in her performances. She has a tone that makes you listen because it cuts through all the noise. 🎶🖤

I’m glad you liked the reasoning. :haha: No one could get it lol. 😂

 

Yeah, I agree. That’s a good way to put it. 😊

 

Yeah, I’d say she was fine in the more intimate parts, but the tempo change of where things got rough imo. 😬

 

:thumbsup:

I voted for both during the finale though. 🙃 

 

We’ll see… 🤔 

Buuuuuut, you did vote for Cam against Rachel in the finale as well... I do recall you saying that "I Hope You Dance" was one of the best finale performances though.... who knows....

Hmm good point... I do think though that Gihanna consistently interacting on both IDF and Instagram could still tip it in her favor (plus, I'm hoping we continue our streak of having the same favorite contestants :haha:)

My top 5 is literally identical to Bk's just switch Carolina with Corey. Anna OR Ryleigh would be in my top 5 (just one tho). 

That’s awesome! :w00tbounce: I wonder how closely our Top 5 placements will align. 👀

#5. Anna Grace (Team Kelly -> Team Blake)

2021-TheVoice-S20-ANNA-GRACE-450X450-KO.jpg?impolicy=nbc_com&imwidth=340&imdensity=1
Wow, time really does fly by. I feel like it was just yesterday when I was working on JD’s write-up and now I’m already working on the first member of my Top 5! 😮 Kicking off my Top 5 is the genreless queen Anna Grace, who is the last four chair turn to be ranked and the last Knockout steal to be ranked. Anna was someone that I loved pre-season. She had a ton of amazing Instagram covers that gave us a taste of her voice, which I immediately fell in love with. Her voice reminded me of a mix between Julia and Cami’s, two contestants that placed in my Top 5 last season. The one thing that really separates Anna from those two, and Ryleigh, an indie pop girl from this season, is that she is practically genreless (this is what the clue referred to. 😉) The genre of a song does not matter and she does not excel or do poorly with a specific genre. She excels when she is given a song that she can connect to and insert her own emotions into. We got a great taste of this during her run on the show and while some people might have been disappointed by her run on the show, I absolutely loved it. I think a big issue with Anna was that she was constantly getting hyped up on here (I think her fan thread had the most fans before the season started), so when she didn’t deliver as people expected her to, everyone kind of just threw her to the curb :( (I’m telling you, some people on here really need to be loyal to their favs because it pays off-) Anna sang Billie Eilish’s “my future” for her audition and did a solid job with it. Was it my favorite rendition of the song? No, but it was still a good performance. Anna was really solid in the slower parts of the song, which really allowed her to show off the beautiful qualities of her voice. The tempo change is what caused things to get a bit shaky though. The runs were a bit shaky, but overall, the execution was still solid. This wasn’t Anna’s best and I think she knew that, but I loved her mindset. She was open to the (constructive) criticism and was happy that the coaches believed in her, which is a good mindset to have (I hope she wasn’t too upset by IDF’s comments *flashbacks to that iconic picture of the IDF tab on her computer* :giggle:) My issue is when these people say she didn’t deserve four chairs when we all know that they wouldn’t even make it past the initial casting call if they tried to audition (sorry, but I had to say it… #endofrant) Anyway, I forgot to mention that Anna is a Brynn stan too, so she was bound to at least make my Top 10 after that. 👀 We were also introduced to her touching story (which they proceeded to mention in every pre-performance package…), which just made me fall in love with her even more. Anna went with Kelly, which I would say was a good choice because she already seemed invested and interested in helping Anna grow on the show. Anna was paired with Ainae in the Battles (an odd pairing lol) and they sang an Amy Winehouse song, which was the complete opposite of Anna’s blind. I was interested in seeing how Anna would tackle this song and to summarize my thoughts, she slayed. The improvement from her blind was evident in her vocals and stage presence. This battle has been on repeat ever since Ainae’s write-up motivated me to get back into watching it. 🤪 This is an unpopular preference on here, but I preferred Anna. Her parts and vocal choices intrigued me more and are part of the reason why I loved the battle so much! Anna’s outfit was so fun too. It was perfect for her and suited the vibe of the song well. Plus, the color was so cute. :haha: Like I mentioned before, Anna’s improvement from her blind to her battle was tremendous. She maneuvered the stage with so much confidence and all the runs and tricks she did with her voice were executed perfectly. This performance really made me consider Anna as a contender for my Top 5 (yes, I think about these things that early lol) and I was honestly surprised to see that not too many on here were into it (oh how that changed the round after :giggle:) The homecoming queen and Kelly agreed with me and chose Anna, and Ainae ended up going home, which I was a bit upset by, especially since all they needed to do was re-film the scene… Anyway (all my thoughts on *that* are in Ainae’s write-up), Anna moved on to the Knockouts and this is where she really started to impress people. Anna sang “If I Die Young,” a country song, which her fan thread had been begging for pre-season lol, and killed it. This performance was perfect. Anna looked gorgeous in that red dress and the arrangement was so beautiful. It truly allowed her to capitalize on the emotion of the song, which is her strength. There was also a part in the performance where she did some belting (I think that’s what it was, I’m no expert lol) and I have never heard her sound stronger. This performance is what truly showed her vast improvement and the fact that she did it all with a country song is what really introduced the idea of her being “genreless.” Also, this performance got Queen Gih’s approval with her ICONIC head nod near Anna’s slayage moment. 🤩 Anna was not chosen as the winner, which is understandable since Gihanna gave another amazing performance (which I’ll talk about in detail whenever she is ranked), but Blake stole her (thank goodness) and she moved on to the lives. In the Playoffs, Anna gave my favorite performance of hers and to think that this was one of her first live performances is just crazy. :haha: Anna sang “Let Her Go” (or should I say “Let HIM Go”) and did amazing once again! Simply put, this was one of the best performances of the night. Anna’s outfit was gorgeous (the stylists did her justice, that’s for sure!) This performance is one of the few that trapped me in a whole emotional vibe throughout the whole thing (and still does lol.) I was entranced by her vocal choices, which she executed perfectly, despite facing many doubters that said she wasn’t going to do well live (ah, wrong once again… :giggle:) Anna mentioned in an interview that Kelly said something encouraging to her right before she performed and that that made her feel more comfortable on the stage. That was so sweet to hear and just proves once again that Kelly is one of the best coaches in the show’s history. Blake said some nice things too, which apparently to some people on here indicated that she was going to get Blake’s save. :huh: I didn’t get my hopes up and thank goodness I didn’t, because I would have been really disappointed the following night when she not only did not receive Blake’s save, but could not even secure a spot in the Instant Save. :( This was upsetting, especially after her amazing performance, but at the same time, the entirety of Team Blake did amazing on Playoffs performance night, so there really was no wrong choice. Anna would have sung “Don’t Know Why” by Norah Jones for her Instant Save song, which she would have slayed (fun fact: her original clue was “I don’t know why this contestant was eliminated that night” in reference to this.) Also, what’s really funny is that when I saw her flawless results show outfit, I predicted that she would sing “Don’t Know Why” in the Instant Save and I was right, except she didn’t actually get to sing it… What really hurts though is that Anna was going to sing the worship song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” in the Semis, which was a HIGHLY requested song in her fan thread (yeah, it still hurts…) Even though Anna’s Voice journey ended a bit too early for my liking, I am still proud of how far she’s come since her audition. She improved so much over the course of the competition and I think that is evident in the reception of her performances on IDF. Anna also seems like a really fun person in general, and would probably fit right in with all the passionate singing competition fans on here. I am so excited to see what avenues she will take with her post show career, since she really is genreless (yes, I have to rub the clue reasoning into  everyone’s faces once again :yes:)
Clue: Sometimes less is more. (a reference to the term “genreLESS,” which I, and she, used in an interview to describe her “genre.” The “more” part comes from the fact that being genreless actually allowed her to explore more genres on the show than a person with a clearly defined musical genre.) 

 

 

Feel free to share your thoughts down below! I will be posting the clue for #4 once everyone has gotten a chance to view this write-up and respond.

I love her, and im a huge fan, but I wasn't the biggest fan of her run. Blinds/battles weren't my faves but I didn't hate the performances. Her knockout and playoffs.....geez those were something else. I'd rank her in my 6-10 batch, just because I love her style and voice, but I was more impressed by others being more consistent throughout. She has some insane covers that if y'all haven't checked out yet, y'all should.

I think this was the case for most Anna fans. I actually really liked her battle, so I’ll disagree there, but yes, her KO and POs performances were insanely good! ☺️

Yes, I agree with this!

Another reason is because Demi Lovato is someone Carolina is really inspired by and looks up to. And she sang Demi’s song, Anyone. 

(This one is definitely just me overthinking, but also, Demi has a song called “It’s okay not to be okay.” I’m aware that this reason is likely a stretch. 🤣

I'm still confident on Gihanna, Cam, and Rachel being the Top 3, so Carolina by default.

We’ll see. Carolina is the only fan thread contestant left. 👀

I think you absolutely nailed it. I've seen Carolina post about Grace a good bit, and Carolina planned to sing the same song that Grace did previous to that. 

 

And BK.... we need to have a talk about ranking Carolina this low :no:
