Team Blake is Down to Four Country Artists After Knockout Rounds – The Voice Recap [VIDEOS]
Danielle Bradbery Vs. Taylor Beck
Danielle Bradbery, the youngest in the competition, was paired against Taylor Beck. Both are young, new singers and Blake wanted to see who stood out more. It wasn’t much of a contest. Danielle blew everyone away with her natural talent, singing ‘Jesus Take the Wheel,’ making Carrie Underwood proud.
Holly Tucker Vs. Luke Edgemon
Holly Tucker put her own spin on Tim McGraw’s ‘Live Like You Were Dying,’ while Luke Edgemon, who Blake picked up with his steal, did his thing with Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream.’ This wasn’t much of choice for Blake either. Holly outsang Luke hands down!
Grace Askew Vs. The Swon Brothers
This pairing was a little closer to call. Grace Askew showed her unique soulful, country voice with ‘I Can’t Stand the Rain.’ While the Swon Brothers went with Dobie Gray’s ‘Drift Away.’ I thought Blake may pick Grace because she was so unique, but he went with the brothers, making them the first duo to make the live shows, since the first season.
Savannah Berry Vs. Justin Rivers
This pairing was a surprise for me from Team Blake. Although Savannah Berry and Justin Rivers should have swapped songs, since she sang Justin Bieber’s ‘As Long As You Love Me’ while Justin went with Miley Cyrus’ ‘The Climb,’ I thought Blake would choose Savannah. The coaches all loved one note from Justin. ONE NOTE! There’s so much more to a song than one note, and I thought Savannah was way better than Justin. This is one time I thought Blake made a big mistake. I guess only time will tell, but I predict Justin going home early.
Cathia Vs. Ryan Innes
The surprise of the night however, came from Usher’s pairing of Cathia, who he stole from Shakira and Ryan Innes. Cathia sang ‘Mr. Know it All,’ her first English song, while Ryan went with a song that represents where he is in his life ‘I Don’t Want To Be.’ I thought Ryan would move on hands down. I picked him to win the whole show. But Usher shockingly went with Cathia, again all because of ONE NOTE!
The live rounds begin next Monday on NBC, starting at 8pm.
