The first week of results shows on The Voice
season 4 were fairly easy to predict, with Vedo and Garrett Gardner
going home. For the second week, however, things are slightly more
difficult. Between performances, order, iTunes, and previous songs,
there's a lot of information to process.
Recap: Watch the Top 10 Performances>>
The women dominated the iTunes charts this week. Danielle Bradbery cracked the Top 10, meaning her iTunes votes will be multiplied by 10. Michelle Chamuel did very well, getting into the Top 15 on iTunes, while Holly Tucker and Sarah Simmons both reached the Top 50. Other downloads in the Top 70 were The Swon Brothers, Sasha Allen and Judith Hill.
Here are my picks for how the Top 10 will do on The Voice
and who's going home this week.Who's Safe?Danielle Bradbery
is still the clear frontrunner, topping the iTunes charts again and becoming the first singer of The Voice
season 4 to crack the top 10 and get her iTunes votes multiplied by 10. Last season during thing Top 10 Cassadee Pope and Melanie Martinez achieved this landmark, so the game is basically done as Danielle is destined to win.
The final two show-stopping performances by Michelle Chamuel
and Sarah Simmons
were also tops on iTunes, so they should be safe.Who's in the Middle?Holly Tucker
performed first, but her large iTunes numbers suggest she had an impact with fans. I will also give an edge to early favorites like Judith Hill
and Sasha Allen
, plus fan favorites The Swon Brothers
. However, all four of these contestants need to be on their toes because any of them could be in trouble.Who's in Danger?
This leaves the three singers who weren't in the Top 70 on iTunes. Kris Thomas
remains a mystery to me, mostly regarding how he's lasted this long. Josiah Hawley
is hot, but with an early, forgettable performance and no love on iTunes, being good-looking isn't good enough. As for Amber Carrington
, I actually think she's in pretty good shape, but the lack of iTunes downloads gives me pause.My Predictions
Just like last week, I'm going to predict that two guys are going home, one from Team Shakira and one from Team Usher. Yup, I'm going with Kris Thomas
and Josiah Hawley
. If this happens, then The Voice
is basically American Idol
, with the men being slaughtered at the start, leaving a field of all women. The elimination of Kris and Josiah would leave The Swon Brothers as the only men left, competing against seven strong women.
What do you think of the Top 10? Does iTunes dictate the results? Are the men (and Shakira and Usher's teams) doomed? Is there any reason to continue with this season since its obvious Danielle Bradbery is going to win?
