Last night on The Voice 2012 America apparently had a fairly easy job in voting. The previous night’s performances had been a mixed bag, with Tony Lucca, Juliet, Mathai and Jamar clear standouts. But would America realize it?
As the results were announced, Team Adam and Team Cee Lo discovered which three of their number were safe. The others had to sing for their survival.
Mathai, Tony Lucca and Pip got through easy for Team Adam.Joining them in safety for another week were Juliet Simms, Jamar Rogers and James Massone for Team Cee Lo.
America knew what it was doing with those votes! So then the remaining singers had to perform again. Here’s how they did:
First up, Kim Yarbrough sang “Spotlight” and she was great. I wish she had sung this in the performance show. I loved the emotion she put into it but it would have been nice to see her move around a little.
Next, Karla Davis sang “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and she didn’t make me love her with this song. It was a little pitchy but Adam seemed to get into it. He had his eyes closed and everything!
Katrina Parker was next with “Don’t Speak.” This was another contestant who did tons better on the elimination show than the performance show, even though it wasn’t a very original version.
Hers was the best of the three songs and everyone agreed so Katrina was saved and Kim and Karla were sent on their way.
Then it was time for Cee Lo’s singers to sing for survival.
Tony Vincent went first, singing “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This.” It was a laid back and much more comfortable performance than the previos night but it wasn’t anything to get excited about.
Chessa sang “All By Myself” next and made a good start but then I don’t know what happened. She seemed to get over excited and in the process she lost the nice tone she had had at the beginning.
Erin Martin was pretty disappointing with “Your Song.” I love he song and know it quite well so I was cringing at all the bum notes. There were plenty.
Cee Lo was torn between his mind saying choose Tony and his heart saying choose Chessa but in the end he went with his heart. So Chessa went through and Tony Vincent and Erin Martin went home.
So what’s your view? Did the judges (and the voters) make the right decisions?
