The Voice 7: The Knockouts Part 1

The Battle Round is finally done - yes, I don't review them for the most part - and The Knockout Round is here. I'm still not particularly fond of this stage of the competition as I feel like some of the pairings are a little unfair, but I digress. Tonight, there were a couple of great good performances, and one decision that's totally annoying.

Oh, and Taylor Swift was actually a good mentor no?

On with the show!


Bryana Salaz
Heart Attack
Tough song. She started off way behind the melody, but it all off towards the end. Some of the notes she was hitting was pretty impressive. Oh, and she somehow reminds me of Jacquie Lee.

Sugar Jones
Love On Top
Her vocals were mostly on point with a couple of interesting phrasing choices, but her growls were distracting and they were oddly placed.

WINNER: Bryana Salaz
STEAL: Sugar Jones (Team Pharrell)



James David Carter
You've Got A Friend
He's country and I didn't really mind. There's an effortlessness in his delivery that I liked and the choices he made with the melody were lovely.

As Long As You Love Me
Pedestrian version of a Justin Bieber song. Yes, of a Justin Bieber song! Ha.

WINER: James David Carter



Danica Shirey
Saving All My Love For You
Hated the song, but she sang it beautifully. She showcased range, dynamics, and control.

Katriz Trinidad
The arrangement sounded choppy, but her vocals were strong and commanded attention. She needs to work on her diction though.

WINNER: Danica Shirey



How Do I Live
Ok. Yes, he sounded great with fantastic vocal control, but this was too dated and boring for my taste. When will you sing something more modern that this?

Toia Jones
Crazy In Love
CRAZY! This was really entertaining, her vocals were spot on, and she looked confident on that stage.

WINNER: Damien Lawson



Jessie Pitts
Your Song
Her tone's annoyingly affected. I don't know. It's pleasant, but nothing special.

Tanner Linford
Calling All Angels
Seriously? How did he even get to this point? His pitch was all over the place.

WINNER: NO ONE Jessie Pitts



Luke Wade
Rich Girl
It started really strong. His tone sounded good and fits the song perfectly. Plus, it seemed quirky but not so much. Ha.

Taylor Phelan
Rather Be
Awesome song choice. Uneven vocals. Weird stage presence.

WINNER: Luke Wade
STEAL: Taylor Phelan (Team Adam)
