amanda was the best singer in the competition... terry was so unoriginal and did nothing with those last 2 songs ,,, trevyn is so over the top and many times strays from the melody, cassidee is meh ,,, nicolas is good but amanda was better.. was a ]]mess...

It would be interesting to see how much of an impact having the "extra points" for being in the Top 10 on itunes made.  From an eariler post, the top 4 seemed to be the top sellers.

Finally Melanie was eliminated. She was so boring

I can't believe Amanda Brown was eliminated. I would have thought Terri and Melanie - but hey what do I know. I cheered for Cody and Dez, and we all know what happen to them. Oh well. At least I have Adam and Blake :)

the real stars of these shows are the judges. the contestants are just supporting acts. lol

I don't know- there aren't too many rock stars like Amanda. I think she's AWESOME, and I'll buy anything she puts out, but I wonder at how much support she'll really get. I knew Melanie was in trouble last night, and I do *not* think she has a future ahead of her. At all. We only really need 1 Fiona Apple...

why there always a contestant i cant stand .. and always do good??? people like TREVIN and CHRISTOPHER from x factor..:(

My wish came true!  Team Adam eliminated.  Now Xtina doesn't have to feel so bad.  Melanie will have a career niche being a quirky indie singer.  She's appealing if not a little too dark for her age.  But I like her fine.  I don't think "The Voice" is something she could have won anyway.

As for Amanda, I never really like her, despite her vocal range.  There's something rehearsed and inauthentic about her "rocker" act.  She was more convincing when she sang "Stars" than any of her "I'm gonna rock this thang" performances.

Moreover, I'm happy that Trevin outlasted her which speaks volumes for Cee Lo's instinct.  Almost everyone here thinks he's a fool for preferring Trevin.  Ha!  Who's laughing now?

Boo. America sucks at picking vocalists.

I guess America chose the one they think needs it more. Both Amanda and Melanie have a future ahead of them. I will buy their stuff. I like Nicholas David and admit I was torn with these six as they were good. My ears tell me Trevin will win.

LOls another sausage fest on the Voice. Will Cassadee take down all the guys and win?  She is probably the only one with a chance now.

Watching Amanda I thought she was technically proficient and probably the best singer but hard to connect with on an emotional level. I still don't know who she is musically except for being  extremely talented. I'm not surprised she was in the bottom but I did think Nick and Melanie were going to go before she did. I think Nick's fans felt more of a heart connection to him and pulled him up into the final four. Surprised Terry has so many fans he's kinda boring.

With this new format, it's possible the only one judge could be left with his/her own contestants going against each other. Weird.

Good Grief, the worst contestants (besides Nick) are in the  top 4.  Sure they are good singers...for a choir or karaoke; otherwise, not so much.  Whomever voted for Cassadee, Trevin or Terry really are tone deaf and dumber than rocks.

I am so disappointed. How can anyone think ND is better than AB? Come on America.... open your ears. I hope Adam will help AB get a chance to make some real music for her fans to enjoy.

So, I drift in and out on The Voice from season to season, but given precedent, is there any way Trevin doesn't win this thing?

She looks absolutely devastated. Oh well..at least we got to hear tons more performances from everyone this year compared to the first 2 seasons.

@IdleTime Trevin still can't sing. His voice is far too weak for the songs he chooses, and people only like him because he sounds like he manages to hit big notes. He's a vocal gymnast that would have McKayla Maroney giving him "that" look. Very few singers from these realty competitions manage to have any career, and you know why? They are hardly marketable for anything outside of the realty competition world, and because once they get out into the industry people realize how they pale in comparison to current singers/entertainers (the latter being the more important in today's current music scene). He's okay at his best, and dismal any other time. Nick has a better understanding of music, but he isn't everyone's cup of tea - even he has some stylistic choices in his phrasing and melody that leaves me dumbfounded.

The too long, don't read version: He can't singer either; most contestants on these shows don't have the talent to make it as a recording artist.

@digitalpunkdiva   Who gives a flip about 'who she is muscially?'  What does that even mean and why does that even matter, Xtina, Jr.??

Klope62

@LinBrand I like it though. It adds an element that will force judges to stop trying to use horrible strategies and actually pick good contestants with good talents; taking away that guarantee they used to have,. I think/hope next season we see much less fodder since they won't be able to only rely on one contestant. Christina openly stated many times she was passing up good singers because of her "strategy" and look where it got her. Haha.

@Penni Fields Amanda is like every other cookie cutter diva out there. And even if Nicholas isn't your taste, he's at least DIFFERENT from what we normally see, andin a good way. He connects with the audience in a way that Amanda couldn't. Nicholas seems like a MUSICIAN. Amanda seems like a poser. There's no denying that she can sing, but her stage presence is too calculated and fake (especially those "sexy" side glances) and it detracts from her voice.

The final four may not be the best singers of the bunch, but when they sing it's not just about hitting the notes. It's about the emotional connection to the song and the audience. You can see it in their eyes. 

Amanda, however, always looks like someone who has spent too much time practicing in front of the mirror.

"Trevin still can't sing".

Everyone's entitled to an opinion.  But that one I have to scratch my head.  He might not be the most formed and experienced singer.  He's only 18.  But to say he can't sing?  Grabs popcorn indeed.

ArchieSue

@Klope62 @ArchieSue Yeah but I think the show really wants her to win since she is doing extremely well on itunes. Plus she seem to be the most current of the 4 left but weird shit has happen on this show. I thought Juliet was going to win last season and look what happened. lols.

Klope62
Klope62 moderator

@ArchieSue Oh wait, no. My mind hasn't rationalized that Trevin is still there yet.

digitalpunkdiva
digitalpunkdiva

@lkim65 @digitalpunkdiva Simply put for you she did not develop a large enough fanbase with an emotional connection to pull her up over less talented performers. Who she is musically determines marketability, direction and opportunity.  She is always going to be able to work in the industry but to break out she has to have fans that will pay to see her.

@Klope62 @LinBrand  Xtina screwed up when she let Deb go, that was the end for her. Plus Xtina just wants mini-clones of herself which was stupid. I kind of wanted Xtina to steal Domo because she was so much fun to watch.  Oh well.....the season is almost over.

@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 He fits the mold of non-descript, non-threatening, inspirational soul/R&B singers who win and proceed to do...well, not much.

@Izikiel @IdleTime Once again, I didn't accuse anyone of being a racist. The word I used was "prejudice". One can be prejudiced against Trevin for multiple reasons other than him being Black. One can dislike him for being overweight, effeminate (in manner or in singing tone), a foreigner with some developing country's accent, or for his melismatic singing, and on and on.

All of these can be labeled as prejudices. If you insist that when I said "prejudice" I mean, and only mean, racist, then you have an issue that I can't help you with. As if Trevin's only attribute is that he is black?

Secondly, I wouldn't care to reply if someone says "I hope Trevin get eliminated because I can't stand a fat, homely, melismatic, gay black singer". That is their prerogative. But saying that "he can't sing" or exhibiting irrational hate on a seemingly sweet and shy singing contestant is suspect to me. Even so, I only posed it as a question not an accusation or insinuation. For instance, I accept some  people do not care for high pitch singing, labeling it as "screechy". It's deafening to their ear. Okay fine. But criticizing Trevin for his "screechiness" then lauding Amanda for her kettle whistling last note on "Dream On" is I don't think being honest about what it is really about Trevin that they don't like.

And that was my one and only point and I'm done explaining.

@IdleTime This will be my last comment on this thread. I never said that any other contestant could fill a role in today's industry, thank you very much. In fact, I don't vote - I merely surf back and forth for some entertainment.

"That's a crock of doo doo." Because, you know, you know exactly how people vote and can say so with such assurance. Now that, my friend, is "doo doo."

For the rest of my comments, refer to @KavitTuralSumud and @Mikhail XO (Thank you both)

Edit: I did mean to say Ad hominem, and I made some other grammar mistakes. Sorry >_<

@IdleTime Don't play coy, you are quite aware of what you did because you followed the same pattern twice.  You mention the race of both contestants and then cutely mention at the end 'oh but see I obliterated your argument, so now what's left for you to disagree with me except for x attributes I ascribed to the contestants?' you are such a troll.

IdleTime

lol.  when did I ever use the "R" word?  as if racism is the only form of prejudice?  but hey if the shoes fit.

@IdleTime I flagged your comment because its pretty brazen of you to come here and insinuate multiple times that people who don't support your screechy contestant are being racist by showing their 'true prejudices' or their 'root biases' (cleverly worded ad hominem attacks against other posters).

IdleTime
IdleTime

First, which contestant on this show has a "role to be filled that isn't already taken"?  What 18 y.o. powerhouse R&B singer on the horizon in the industry do you know of?  Secondly, are you voting and rooting for contestants on these shows due to what is needed in the market?  Really?  Seriously?  That's a crock of doo doo if you ask me.  Viewers root for performers that they are connected with.  And I personally don't care who or what anyone prefers: a big overweight black male R&B belter or a white girl-next-door who tells stories in a more intimate way.  We all have our tastes and biases.  But to criticize Trevin on the basis that "he can't sing" is to camouflage what the root biases are.

Izikiel

@IdleTime @Izikiel I suppose my comment did not post. These are my main points: Trevin doesn't have a role to be filled that isn't already taken. The market is too saturated with R&B and Soul singers that do what he does much, but much better. P and J&J are different artists in terms of genre, and so I don't compare them on singing alone. I don't care for the undertone of that last comment of yours, it's a petty ad-hoc in the guise of a commentary on voter preference.

IdleTime

@Izikiel @IdleTime Becoming a star apparently has very little to do with singing ability.  Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez vs. Phillip Phillips.  Most would say that J & J can sing circles around P.  Who's proven to be most likely the star now?  I'm wary of ppl picking on Trevin -- apparently for his singing ability -- when singers like Dez are getting passes.  What are their true prejudices here?

Izikiel
Izikiel

@IdleTime You're right. He can sing. Everyone can technically sing, but not everyone does it well. He's consistently mediocre. Yes it's my opinion, but seeing as many of these so-called artists don't tend to survive the brutal process of becoming a "star" I believe that it's an opinion shared by many if not most.

@Mikhail XO @KavitTuralSumud @Klope62 @ArchieSue @LinBrand Oye, we are such agreement this season :). She was pimped out once and she took advantage of it but then decided to follow it up with a Florence song which didn't help her at all.  She gave him a pretty good indicator of where she could go and then tried to shove her into 'generic black diva' territory. For all the people whining about her 'inauthenticity' out front in a crowd, I didn't see it---what I saw was a contestant stymied by her previous years as a backup singer. Cassadee Poop (I love that nickname) apparently ftw.

@Klope62 @Mikhail XO @ArchieSue @LinBrand I really think she thought Dimples would carry her through.  Adam Levine is really the one to blame for Amanda Brown. He really should have honed her in a specific genre and gave her a musical identity in the way that Dia Frampton did.
