“The Voice” Recap: Who Didn’t Make the Final Four

Filed under : Celebrity News

Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown were the ones ousted from “The Voice” last night, a week before the semi-finals. One, for me, was a certainty to go; the other, perhaps more of a surprise.

I’ll miss Melanie’s ditzy costume ensembles but not her vocals so much. But then, I don’t know, because on the results show we were treated to her smoky, jazzy best on Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” that she performed with fellow “distinct” vocalist Nicholas David. And I remembered I really had liked her in the past. This was one of her most memorable performances, and that, perhaps, is no bad way to leave the competition.

I was a lot more surprised to see Amanda Brown ousted. I thought she did pretty well but I do like a rocker chick. Her “natural woman” song choice perhaps didn’t help her, but we’ll never know if that’s what did for her in the end.

So here we are, just a few weeks away from finding out who wins “The Voice” 2012. It’s still pretty open. Terry’s now the man rocker left in the competition (since no one’s letting Cassadee rock it out) but I hope we don’t get a repeat of his nasal sound that we got last night on his duet with Trevin. Cassadee has a strong pop-punk fan base and she’s even a little bit country (more so, if Blake gets his way). Trevin…well, Trevin has heart, man. He knows how to pull at an audience emotionally. I’m a bit tired of his sentimentality, to be honest, but he knows how to push buttons. Nicholas is often forgotten, but he’s probably the most original artist of the bunch.

So who are you betting will make it in to the final two next week in probably the unkindest cut of all?

    I’m not sure how I feel about the eliminations last night simply because I think one of them isn’t justified other than that there just weren’t enough votes. You just never know with The Voice. The elimination that surprised me the most was Amanda Brown. I always thought that she would go all the way because she has so much versatility and a real stage presence. I’ll admit that I saw Melanie’s elimination coming for some time now. She may be a unique artist but I’ve been bored by her for a few weeks now. It’s going to be boring without Amanda around: she really represented the rock genre well but I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll see of her.
