The Voice iTunes Charts: Adam Wakefield Leads at #8, Alisan Porter Close Behind at #9
The Voice 2016 is in full swing, as the Top 12 performed for your votes last night. For the first time this season, we have multiple artists charting in the Top 10 on iTunes, which seems to suggest we’ve got ourselves a closer competition than expected.
Team Blake’s country rocker Adam Wakefield leads at No. 8 with his terrific version of “Soulshine” by The Allman Brothers Band. However, Team Christina’s Alisan Porter is very close behind, ranking at No. 9 with her stunning version of “Stone Cold” by Demi Lovato. From there, it’s a steep drop to the next charting performer, as Emily Keener is the only other artist to chart in the Top 30, scoring a placement at No. 27 with her take on Jeff Buckley’s “Lilac Wine”. This makes her the highest charting member of Team Pharrell altogether. That said, her fellow teammate isn’t too far behind, as Hannah Huston ranks at No. 41 with Christina Aguilera’s “Something’s Got a Hold On Me”. Nick Hagelin ranks just one position below Huston, coming in at No. 42 with his version of Blake Shelton’s “Mine Would Be You”, which ended up being one of the more emotional, poignant performances of last night’s show, considering he dedicated the ballad to his wife.
Team Adam finally makes an appearance in the mid-40s, in a very close grouping that keeps all three artists in the Top 50: show-closer Shalyah Fearing leads at No. 45 with the Kelly Clarkson version of “Up to the Mountain” by Patti Griffin. She’s followed close behind by Laith Al-Saadi at No. 46 with the Albert King classic “Born Under a Bad Sign”. Owen Danoff rounded things off for Team Adam at No. 48 with his take on the Lukas Graham hit “7 Years”.
From there, it’s a random jumble of artists in the lower end of the Top 100: Team Christina’s Bryan Bautista lands at No. 72 with “Kiss From A Rose”, just ahead of Team Pharrell’s Daniel Passino, who ranks at No. 80 with “Human Nature”. Mary Sarah is eight positions lower, coming in at No. 88 with Carrie Underwood’s “So Small”. However, she wasn’t the lowest ranking member of Team Blake, as Paxton Ingram barely charted in the Top 200. His version of Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself” came in at a disappointing No. 166. So it looks like America has already made up its mind about which artists they want to stay. That said, it could be that many of Paxton’s fans vote through more traditional means, which could offset the poor iTunes performance. However, I wouldn’t hold my breath on the singer avoiding a Bottom 3 placement, unfortunately.
