How would you arrange it? Bekah taking on Taylor's part and harmonizing with Josh, while Caleb, who has the lowest voice, takes on Bon Iver's?


not entirely sure, but we can for sure count on GNT to arrange it!

Girl Named Tom - “Lover, Please Stay” by Nothing But Thieves

Gymani - “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker

Hailey Mia - “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver

Jeremy Rosado - “Give You Blue” by Allen Stone


Joshua Vacanti - “Paris (Ooh La La)” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, yes I will keep suggesting this song until he does some effin' rock.


Jershika Maple - “Holy Water” - We the Kingdom


Holly Forbes - “River” by Joni Mitchell

Jim and Sasha - “Song of Trouble” by CARM and Sufjan Stevens (Father and Son by Cat Stevens is too obvious for being on the right track.)


Lana Scott - A hoedown-styled rearrangement of a 2010s pop song would be really fun. Maybe “Story Of My Life” by One Direction? Gimme something out of left field! (Or at least don’t just sing Carrie Underwood next week.)

Paris Winningham - “Bright Lights” by Gary Clark Jr.

Wendy Moten - “Bed of Roses” by Bon Jovi

Girl Named Tom - 500 Miles by Peter, Paul and Mary.  Man, in looking for 1 girl-2 guy groups who straddle down that folksy alt lane GNT holds down. We see Echosmith (contemporary) and Peter, Paul and Mary (old school); the temptation is to give them Echosmith's "Bright" since "Cool Kids" doesn't fit their vibe as much. But "Bright" is lighter fare and might not work in a competition setting. Civil Wars with "Barton Hollow" would be good, but only the Taylor-driven "Safe and Sound" was done on the show; that could also work. Peter, Paul and Mommy are waayy better for GNT's old school folksy harmonizing fare. 500 Miles is one of the most meaningful songs out there and will hit every baby boomer watching this show straight in the heart. Moment song potential for them.


Gymani - Best Thing I Never Had by Beyonce. She's covered this song. Look, this isn't a voting song, but this is the real her, and let's not pander anymore. If nothing else, she can sing it better than The Keys.




Hailey Mia - Make It Real by The Jets. I was tempted to give her Willow's "Meet Me At Our Spot" as part of THE ANXIETY for super-current fare, but obviously that's not going to fly with the audience. "Ocean Eyes" is a good one. I mean, we've heard "You Say" by Lauren Daigle, as well, which will definitely cement her a spot next week. But I wanted something that evoked something from the simpler time (70s-80s), some soulful adult contemporary that would appeal to the boomers. The Jets did this really well in the late 80s, and Liz Wolfgramm was like 15-16 when she sang this song so it's age appropriate.  If Hailey can take on Liz Wolfgramm hear it would work well.


Jeremy Rosado - This Woman's Work by Maxwell. True by Spandau Ballet (or You by Lloyd for its contemporary interpolation). I mean, lord, this guy is going to belt every female diva out there or wanna-be female diva like Rascal Flatts. But let's go back to the basics, or its contemporary aspect. But let's not kid ourselves, he'll probably do Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" or something. Ok, found Maxwell for him. Let's live off the false.


Joshua Vacanti - Africa by Toto (or Weezer version). Let's go Joshua swell up towards the chorus here.


Jershika Maple - Silver Springs by Fleetwood Mac. One of the best songs in the Fleetwood Mac catalog; if Jershika can show the same sort of vulnerability as Stevie Nicks here, it's a moment. 


Holly Forbes - For Your Eyes Only By Sheena Easton. Cheesy as all hell, but it was a James Bond song in 1981 (movie of the same name), and it's a belting song. Was gonna give it to Ryleigh, but let's give it to Holly now. 


Jim and Sasha - Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel. I was going to give them "Take It Easy by Eagles" for the unintentional hilarity, but if they want a moment encapsulating that folksiness, this is definitely one of their better bets. Simon and Garfunkel are legends in the 60s game.


Lana Scott - Take Me Home, Country Roads (Judy Collins version). Judy Collins has one of the more tasteful girl versions of the song out there, and I know Lana Scott's from Virginia, but there is a West Virginia reference out there. It will ingratiate herself with the audience more. Bonus points if she can do the medley of Take Me Home, Country Roads/Leaving on a Jet Plane that Collins did, but Jim and Sasha already did "Leaving On a Jet Plane".


Paris Winningham - Both Sides of The Story by Phil Collins. I'm not sure if Paris can evoke the storytelling aspect of Phil in this song, which touches on poverty, racial issues and homelessness even in the early 90s, and maybe it's too heavy on the Voice, but I'm pushing this on him.


Wendy Moten - The new Adele song (Easy On Me). Let's go.

I wouldn't like that song for Wendy. She and Adele have very different tones, idk how it would work.


With that said, Wendy is Wendy, she can handle any song from any genre that they throw at her.

I don't think anyone should sing the new Adele song :ph34rwave:


Well, next week is fan week, so it wouldn't be surprising to see someone cover it (probably Holly or Jeremy)
