The Blind Auditions and Battle Rounds are over on The Voice
season 4, and with 32 contestants left, the Knockout Rounds will cut
that number in half. Each coach will pit two of their singers against
each other, each with their own song, and then pick one winner and one
If I had to pick the weakest team of eight, it would have to be Usher. Is anyone excited about Audrey or Jess? Did C. Perkins really deserve a steal? Would Vedo and Josiah Hawley still be here if Vedo's mom hadn't died or Josiah didn't look like a supermodel? Here's Usher's team.
C. Perkins (stolen)
The benefit of being in the worst team is that everyone has a chance to win in the Knockout Tounds.DEFINITELY SAFE: Ryan Innes
I want to pick two singers, but I just can't. Ryan is the only person on Team Usher who has shown the skill and talent to be a serious contender on this show.DEFINITELY OUT: C. Perkins, Jess Kellner, Audrey Karrasch
To be perfectly honest, I'm not even sure who these people are. Apparently they're all still on Team Usher, but they're such forgettable, unimpressive singers that taking them to the Live Playoffs would be embarrassing.THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK: Cathia, Josiah Hawley, Vedo, Michelle Chamuel
If Usher wants to play strategically, keeping Cathia around to steal Shakira's voters would be a smart move. Josiah is great eye candy, and as Dez Duron proved, you can ride that train pretty far. I don't think Vedo is particularly great, but his story is touching and I feel like Usher sees a lot of himself in Vedo. Finally, Michelle is the weird Internet favorite, so if Usher is looking for a diverse team, she'd be a great choice.MY PREDICTIONRyan Innes
is the only sure thing. I think Usher may want to go for the most diverse team possible, so I'll add Spanish-language singer Cathia
, good-looking Josiah Hawley
and oddball Michelle Chamuel
. That's a foursome that won't be in danger of splitting votes because they'll all cater to a different segment of the audience.
What do you think about Team Usher on The Voice season 4? Which four contestants will survive the Knockout Rounds?
