That other reality television talent show, The Voice, is down to the final eight contestants – Team Adam’s Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown; Team Xtina’s Dez Duron; Team Blake’s Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope; and Team Cee Lo’s Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David, and Cody Belew.
Last night, the final elite eight took to the stage to sing their bleeding hearts out for America. Team Adam’s Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown delivered captivating and ridiculously powerful performances, while Team Xtina’s sole survivor, Dez Duron, slipped below-the-radar with a lounge in Las Vegas performance. Team Blake’s Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope delivered singer/songwriter vibes that could count in their favour, and Team Cee Lo’s Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David, and Cody Belew took on some of the biggest songs on the planet.
Let’s crumble that cookie, shall we?
Amanda Brown is one of the front runners in the competition, and many polls point to her as the most popular contestant of the bunch. She is, after all, one of our favourites in the competition too!
Melanie Martinez’s survival depends on song choice at this point in the competition, but she’s luckily doing a great job at keeping those nasty elimination votes at bay.
Dez Duron will, unfortunately, not win the competition. His looks are currently pulling him through the rough spots (like last night) and carrying him week after week. His elimination and Team Xtina’s elimination might be imminent, however.
Terry McDermott’s singer/songwriter vibe makes him one of the best in the competition. There’s no doubt in our minds that he will reach the finale.
Cassadee Pope’s vocals are still not completely there, but her beauty and performance quality will keep her in the competition for a bit longer.
Trevin Hunte’s big voiced Motown extravaganza could bore audiences at home, and could make Trevin be eliminated prematurely.
Nicholas David’s off-kilter and throwback vibe bodes well with the home audience. He could take it all if he keeps up his eccentric performances.
Cody Belew’s big voiced performances will most probably see him go very, very far in this competition. If he is able to stay consistent throughout, he might be one of the finalists.
