The Voice Recap: Which of the Top 13 Contestants Sounded Lucky… and Un-?

Monday’s episode of The Voice was both extra special and completely ordinary the former because the contestants were performing songs that changed their lives the latter because at the end of the day all they were really trying to do was as usual remain in the running to win. Which of the Top 13 sounded like safe bets to advance Read on and we’ll discuss the hell out of the performances. the voic itabastolatop 13 performances Kique Team Gwen Superstition Grade B+ | Since it was Kique’s highschool band teacher who introduced the 19yearold to Stevie Wonder’s hit he should probably go back and thank him because he sounded damn good on the number strong soulful and confident. His coach said that he’d not only nailed it he’d made it his own and snarky as I tend to be I had to agree.

Bryce Leatherwood Team Blake Amarillo by Morning Grade B+ | If you aim at the king George Strait in this case you’d better not miss Bryce told us before taking a bite of the classic on which he’d cut his teeth. And by God he didn’t miss. Blake’s country boy turned out a not perfect but still damn fine rendition and what just might’ve been my favorite of his performances to date. Definitely won’t need the Instant Save Tuesday! Devix Team Camila R U Mine Grade A | In rehearsal Devix sounded like he was made to sing the Arctic Monkeys song that had made him really consider being a vocalist. And on stage oh yeah! [Bleep] yeah even! This was a total rockgod moment for Devix. He sounded amazing and looked utterly at home in the spotlight. Unless you hate altrock I have a feeling that by the time he was done you were as obsessed with him as I am. Beyond wicked!

Rowan Grace Team Blake The Winner Takes It All Grade C | In rehearsal the 17yearold shared that she’d performed ABBA songs for her parents as a youngster. Well as an even younger youngster. I wasn’t sure doing so here was such a hot idea though. As much as I want to like her honest I do this was just… What’s the word A mess. Pitchy yelly just all over the place. Not quite a disaster but to my ears pretty close to it. Of course I could be totally wrong the coaches had only praise for Rowan. The Voice Recap Kique Parijita Bastola Top 13 PerformancesOmar Jose Cardona Team Legend In the Name of Love Grade A+ | After explaining that Bebe RexhaMartin Garrix’s song had set him down a better path away from isolating himself and just partying Omar stepped up to the mic and reminded me in no uncertain terms why I’d been so high on him previously. A much much better song selection than we’d heard from him lately it allowed his vocals to soar in a way that was… sheesh. It felt freaking impossible! Not good not great astonishing!

Alyssa Witrado Team Gwen Dreaming of You Grade D | Singing the Selena hit that once made her realize how much she missed her late grandfather Gwen’s MiniMe delivered a roadkillflat performance that was punctuated by the most hand gestures we’d seen since Morgan Myles a couple of weeks ago. At least after this Rowan’s performance didn’t seem so bad by comparison. Alyssa even received a smidgen of gentle constructive criticism from Camila and you know how rare criticism is on this show!.The Voice Recap Kique Parijita Bastola Top 13 Performancesbodie Team Blake I’m Gonna Be 500 Miles Grade A | Oo I just knew this was gonna be amazing from the minute the fan fave told us that he wanted to as his coach would put it bodieize The Proclaimers’ hit that made him think of his wife and their life together. He started it off slow and thoughtful then built up to a chorus that sounded gloriously passionate rather than just cheerful like the original. No way bodie isn’t going all the way to the Finals. Dude’s a star and a half!

Kim Cruse Team Legend Always On My Mind Grade A+ | The Texas powerhouse hoped to surprise viewers by doing a country song and one that she’d come to appreciate on a new level after her grandmother’s passing. I don’t know if I’d say I was surprised Kim could sing the phone book and sound amazing. But Lord she did indeed sound divine here! She took us to church and delivered a take on Willie Nelson that was hearttugging and soulstirring to the nth. The Voice Recap Kique Parijita Bastola Top 13 PerformancesBrayden Lape Team Blake Come Over Grade C+ | Singing the Sam Hunt version of the Kenny Chesney number that made him fall in love with singing the 16yearold was more of a shrug than a highfive. He was a little pitchy and so laidback he might as well have been lying down. You have a future in country music his coach assured him. I wasn’t superduper sure that he had much of one in this contest however. Knowing that Brayden has been better this was a lackluster disappointment.

Eric Who Team Camila Can’t Help Falling in Love Grade C | Hoping to show America his softer side Eric dove into the Elvis ballad that he said he started singing differently after he fell in love for the first time. And soft it certainly was. Unfortunately without his usual flashy stage persona we were left to notice once again that he’s an OKatbest singer. Sweet fella fun to watch but is he an Omar Devix or bodie Alas no. Morgan Myles Team Camila If I Were a Boy Grade A+ | Feeling like Beyonce’s smash told the story of how much easier her own path as a country singer would’ve been were she a guy Morgan absolutely ripped into the song with a forcefulness and fire that almost dared you to deny how good great she is. Arguably her best performance so far. Utterly electric!

The Voice Recap Kique Parijita Bastola Top 13 PerformancesParijita Bastola Team Legend All I Ask Grade A | Performing the Adele song with which she scored first place in a Nepalese singing competition the teenager so far my pick to win Season 22 delivered another in an unbroken string of stunning performances. The kid just sings like a total pro with as much control as emotion. What else can you say about a contestant who can not only take on an Adele song but rise to the monumental challenge that it presents She’s awesome. Justin Aaron Team Gwen Break Every Chain Grade A+ | In rehearsal Justin explained that Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s song helped lift him out of an awful depression. In that case his coach wanted him to go for it and cry. Instead he had to have made a lotta viewers cry. The onechair turn poured so much intensity into his performance he all but roared. You took it to the next level Gwen exclaimed. If you ask me he even took it to the level after that too. Superpowered!
