Brought on Tuesday the voice The top 13 show results, determining the all-important top 10 of the season. Earlier in the evening, host Carson Daly explained that nine contestants would be voted off, based on Monday’s top 13 performancesAfter which the remaining four singers will compete for the final spot in a real-time, audience-voted, instant save sing-off.

On Monday, I predicted that the bottom four would include Team Camilla’s Eric Hu, who drastically reduced his usual colorful and flamboyant stage presence and was consequently lost in the shuffle; Team Gwen’s Alyssa Vitrado, who really shouldn’t have made the top 13; And Team Gwen’s truly most promising and unique team member, Kiku, who disappointingly played a very safe and straightforward Stevie Wonder karaoke cover this week. And I was right about all three.

However, I also assumed that Tim Blake’s pop singer Rowan Grace, who I thought really screwed up with her ABBA cover, would also be at risk. But I should have factored in Blake Shelton’s massive popularity among my followers VoiceSpectator Rowan survived — making Blake the only coach of the season to have all four of his live playoff semifinalists finish in the top 10. If you do the math, that means Team Blake now comprises 40% of Season 22. The man is simply unstoppable – that is, until he stops himself and retires the voice Next year. I’ll be curious to see how the show’s voting pattern changes if Blake is no longer variable in season 24.

But… back this Season. A season 22 contestant I absolutely am no Anxiety will be in jeopardy this week for Tim Camilla’s husky alt-rocker Davies, who on Monday thrillingly killed an arctic monkey song – a Voice First! – and in the process has seemingly established itself as an exciting new pioneer. John legendarily told Davis that “RU MINE?” were “the right songs for who you are as an artist and vocalist”; “You went,” boasted coach Camila Cabello superstar This one!”; Even former KROQ DJs and current Voice Host Carson Daly expressed his approval, telling Davis, “Thank you for introducing rock ‘n’ roll. the voice – A sound and feeling we’ve missed for a while!

But apparently Voice The audience didn’t miss the rock at this show — or at least they didn’t miss the Britrock. Well good. And here I was expecting Devix to cover a Franz Ferdinand, Cribbs, Muse or Kasabian banger next week.

But there was still hope that Davies would turn up next week, and when it came time to sing for Save, he stuck to what he does best, rather than the dark and menacing and stomp-less number of the previous night in the Anglophile Killer’s performance of “When You Were Young.” There was – it was anthemic, joyful, evangelical, definitely stadium-worthy – and it seemed all was not lost.

“Listen, I don’t know what America was thinking when they didn’t vote for you yesterday,” Camila grumbled. “America, you can redeem yourself now. acquit yourself! … America, you are making a big mistake letting Davies go. You want to hear that voice of his in a ballad. You really want to hear that voice of hers in an emotional song. you do no Want to let this voice go!”

But Devix had some tough competition from this season’s other supercool indie-rock maverick, Kikuer. “I will no want to make this call,” Carson admitted.

At least it seemed clear that America wouldn’t have to make the call between Eric and Alyssa. First, Eric sang… “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus. A. More like Eric why, in the Emirates? Eric is a consummate showman, one the entertainer, and when he was his absolutely fabulous pastel-haired self, the one-man star of “The Eric Who Show,” he was a blast to watch. I’m not sure why she felt compelled to go so off-brand this week with her sappy ballad choices and fashion meanderings, but she really did sabotage herself. And I felt he didn’t go out on his own terms. When he shakily sang Miley’s “The Climb” line, “My faith shakes,” it really felt like it, and when he ended his song with “I Love Yall,” it was clear that he was “The Eric Who Show” knew. ” was over. And it was a shame.

As for teenage pop star Alyssa, she battled it out with Billie Eilish’s age-appropriate “Ocean Eyes,” and it was actually one of her strongest performances — certainly better than Monday’s volatile, near-blasphemous Selena cover — more vulnerable and connected, and A lot more. Her thin voice is appropriate. But it was still an undercooked and disjointed performance, indicating that she would be better off waiting for the audition. the voice In one or two seasons.

Back to redemption, Kiku was hoping to be redeemed himAs himself, after pulling off some of the season’s most creative, left-field performances (outkast’s “Hey Ya!” and a radical remake of Harry Styles’ “As It Was”), he stumbled into a simple and old-fashioned bump on Monday. performance. So, Kiku let it go howl at the weekend Fifty Shades of Grey The theme is “earned” – and he earned it, all right. It was 50 Shades of awesome — a very self-assured and sexy vocal.

“Of course, Kiku is passing through America. right?” Gwen Stefani begged. “I want to remind everyone that this is a 19-year-old boy; he has a peopleVOICE … I think it’s a mistake, America. We have to push Kiku.”

And so, after a commercial break and a five-minute voting window, America considers Camila and Gwen’s appeal and saves… Kiku. I really couldn’t argue with this decision, and I’m glad Kiku found a remedy. But Devix should have never Was in the bottom four to begin with — not when he was just breaking out of his shell and starting to break the mold.

“Devix, no matter what happens tonight, I just think you’re a huge talent,” Camila assured the 28-year-old Queens rocker before learning her fate. “I want to listen to your music in my car. I just think you are a talented musician. You were meant to do it. Thank you for being vulnerable and open with me.”

Hopefully this isn’t the last we hear from Devix. In the meantime, the Top 10 will compete next Monday, and hopefully Kiku learns from this week’s close call and goes back to taking chances and script-flipping – or Kiku-fying – some more out-of-the-box song choices. See you then.
