JOSH KAUFMAN, Season 6 (Team Usher)

ZCgOArI.png

Ah, my soul man Josh! He's one of the two Snowflakes™ that managed to win the whole shebang, and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving artist. To be honest, it hurts a little that he barely made it to the Top 20 of this rankdown, considering he's the most technical and skilled male artist that ever graced the Voice stage. Yes, I know Jordan Smith exists, but considering his more dynamic range, vocal dexterity and the amount of texture and grit his voice has, I think Josh's voice is just unparalleled. Another thing he has over his competition: emotiveness. No one can imbue a song with so much ache and passion like Josh can. It's a travesty that Josh was overlooked for years and years with talent of that magnitude, so I owe a debt of gratitude to The Voice for discovering him and putting him in the spotlight where he belongs. 

Josh holds two distinctions in Voice history:  he was the first stolen contestant to win the show, as well as the artist who clinched the only victory for his coach, Usher, which is a pairing that I didn't think would work as amazingly as it did. I absolutely love the direction Usher went with Josh on the show..... Stay With Me in particular was a stroke of genius and cemented his status as a Season 6 frontrunner. And let's not forget the double whammy of All of Me and Love Runs Out during Semifinals night..... I honestly think that pretty much sealed the deal for Josh's victory. BTW, how stupid was Adam this season for dropping Josh in the second round of battles when he could have had a dream team of Josh, Kat and Grimmie? Imbecile! 

Oh, here's a random not-so-fun fact I just remembered: I was actually hospitalized with a bad case of amoebiasis during the Season 6 Quarterfinals week. Josh's gorgeous rendition of I Can't Make You Love Me gave me respite from the incredibly painful stomach cramps I had to endure that week.

Post-Voice, Josh's journey was a pretty eventful one. He was part of the short-lived but well-received Voice Tour 2014, landed the lead role in a Broadway production of Pippin, went for a long while stuck in the useless Voice winners contract, bounced back from that by recording a gorgeous self-titled indie EP that remains one of my faves to this very day, successfully crowdfunded an experimental EP on Patreon, became a livestream musician on FB for a bit, and started a podcast called PARE (Philosophy. Art. Religion. Ethics.). Oh, and did I mention that he did all of these while supporting his adorable family of 5? We stan a hustler snowflake!

Unfortunately, a possibly life-altering medical condition befell Josh recently. He had to undergo eye surgery on his right eye due to a detached retina. What this means for Josh and his future music plans remains to be seen. I can only hope he can get through this challenge with the proper mindset and support. Whatever happens, I'll be here patiently, waiting for his next project. Keep on keeping on Josh! ❤️ 

FAVORITE PERFORMANCE: Love Runs Out (Semifinals)

Cassadee Pope is officially the last member of the Top 15.  This means Hannah Houston has been eliminated.  Anyone can do the final write up.

We still have to crown a winner.  Each ranker will have to  send me a ranking (1-15).  You must include a minimum of 100 words on your Top 5 and bottom 5.  You must also at least comment on the other 5.  

 

The public can also send me rankings (it will not be done through surveymonkey this time as apparently the Ranking option is now a paid feature!).  The public can choose to comment if they wish, but its not required. Their totals will be averaged with mine and included in a Public ranking.  I will give 2 weeks for this.  You have until Sunday August 1st at 11:59 PM to submit your rankings and write ups.

Probably a long shot but to soften the blow in case it's unanimous. :dead:

lmao I would have voted the same too. 🙈

 

Ugh so sad for Hannah going out  like this. :broken: (Although Cassadee is deserving to make the finals too.)

Oooh yess that game went by so flawlessly for her. It was always going to be tough for The Voice one to match - as her taste is quite different from some other rankers.

Ooh yeah I don't think I'll ever top that. Part of why I'm scared to do a DWTS rankdown again as I'll be destined to flop :dead:
