Who would've won? Jordan Vs Sawyer

Jordan for sure. Even if you don't like him, you still can't deny that he is a superior vocalist. The man dominated the itunes #1 spot multiple times. 

 

Sawyer is great too and would be unstoppable behind his guitar, but not everyone fall for it. He won because of his distinctive style. Taking the guitar away from him, he would go downfall at some point. Although he also dominated the itunes chart during his season, he had no #1.

How would Sawyer compete with that? 

P.S. Jordan's iTunes numbers were insane. He alone sold more than the entire s5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12 casts. I Was looking at the old threads (via archive) and found these few lists (credit = @HelenaHandbasket and a couple others).

 

This was Helena's entire post.

 

I took the data for Kworb's top 2000 digital songs since August 2013 and pulled out all the Voice entries to see how they stacked up. I may have missed a couple. For reference Adele's Hello is number 1

screenshot of a post "shai" posted. I Included only first 22 names.

This means Jordan's sales were almost the same as Matt's, Sawyer's, and Lauren's combined.

 

 

Also, Look at the names below him. 🤯

Of course hello had way more sales overall, but it's still a big accomplishment. He actually knocked Hello down from the first spot three times.

 

 

P.S. Jordan would've been TCO on any season considering that Roma Downey loves him. He wasn't given as many pimp spots as other winners, but he was surely the most "Hyped" contestant ever (deservingly so).

 

Normally males with big voices don't win, but I think the "Shock Factor" really helped him. The way he said, "Obviously my voice is different, I get called ma'am on the phone all the time. But I've learned that being different is what makes me special. It's my gift, it's ok to be different, and it's ok to be yourself because you're made that way." I think it really moved minivan a lot.

No one can compete with Jordan. Imagine How other contestants must have felt when Jordan was performing "Somebody To Love." That was brutal. 😂

Btw, I love Sawyer as well.

 

I don't think he could go one on one against Jordan in the KOs, but in the lives, he would also be a vote magnet. Of course Jordan would've still won, but Sawyer is def the only one who can give him competition voting wise.

Sawyer's voice with guitar is very powerful that he got appeals even from one of the most obscure songs ever.

 

Jordan on the other hand is a very pro vocalist, so I went with Jordan
