The Voice 2016 iTunes Charts: Alisan Porter Leads at #6, Laith Al-Saadi at #11
The Voice Top 10 performance show was last night, and as a result, we got some of the best chart showings of the season for multiple artists, particularly Team Christina’s Alisan Porter and Team Adam’s Laith Al-Saadi.
The highest-charting artist on the Top 100 singles chart is Alisan, who ranks at No. 6 with her powerful rendition of Patti Griffin’s “Let Him Fly”, a song performed in memory of a boyfriend she lost in her youth. Not far behind is Laith, whose smoky, bluesy version of B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone” took him to the No. 11 spot, in one of his best chart performances yet on the iTunes Top 100 singles.
Just five spots removed from Laith is Team Blake’s country rocker Adam Wakefield, who lands at No. 16 with his take on the Ray Charles classic “I Got a Woman”. He sold well enough to just barely keep ahead of fellow Team Blake artist Mary Sarah, who ranks at No. 18 with the iconic Tammy Wynette ballad “Stand By Your Man”.
Team Pharrell also managed to break the Top 30, as Hannah Huston comes in at No. 23 with Adele’s “Rolling In the Deep”. Team Christina’s Bryan Bautista just barely missed out on the Top 30 with his version of “Promise” by Romeo Santos featuring Usher, which lands him at No. 35. This was enough to keep ahead of Paxton Ingram, who went from ranking at No. 18 last week to coming in at No. 37 this week with Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”. That said, Paxton’s showstopping rendition of “Break Every Chain” by Tasha Cobbs from last week remains on the Top 100 singles chart at No. 83, making him the only artist this week with two songs in the Top 100.
Things get pretty grim for the remaining contestants from here: Team Christina’s Nick Hagelin delivered one of his weakest chart performances yet, as his version of Michael Jackson’s “I Can’t Help It” lands at No. 91. Team Adam’s Shalyah Fearing is close behind at No. 92 with Emeli Sande’s “My Kind of Love”. And, last but not least, Team Pharrell’s Daniel Passino has fallen out of the Top 100 altogether, and damn near misses out on the Top 200: his version of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing” comes in at No. 188, which doesn’t exactly bode well for his chances of advancing to the Top 9. Of course, with the Instant Save still in play, his Twitter fans could easily save him again. So not all hope is lost for Daniel fans. Still, this isn’t exactly an encouraging sign. But hey, Paxton Ingram went from not charting in the Top 100 at all one week, to being declared a frontrunner with “Break Every Chain” the next, so anything is possible.
