The Voice UK 4: Top 8

Not sure if I like this format of The Voice UK. I mean, we've spent so much time with the Blinds, Battle, and Knockouts, and we get just three (3) live shows in total and with this week, we lost half of the contestants. I don't know. Maybe it's working for them at that side of the world, but it's a bit too fast for my taste. Then again, what do I know right?

Next week is the Finale, but before that.. on with the show!

08. Vikesh Champaneri
Don't Leave Me This Way
No matter how good he sounded vocally, I just couldn't take him seriously. He looked lost performing as if he was asked from the audience to perform on stage. 3

07. Emmanuel Nwamadi
A Whiter Shade of Pale
Boring. 4

06. Lucy O'Byrne
O Mio Babbino Caro
Vocally, this was much better than her performance last week, but that didn't change the fact that her genre isn't my cup of tea. 5

05. Karis Thomas
Say Something
I had reservations with the song choice as I felt that there's nothing else she could do to make her performance sound less karaoke, but the quality and how she added texture to her voice was a pleasant surprise. 7

04. Joe Woolford
Was I really expecting for the Nick Jonas song? Haha. As usual, his pitch was uneven at the beginning, but as soon as the chorus hit, his vocals soared. 7

03. Stevie McCrorie
Bleeding Love
This was a step to the right direction. The song choice and its arrangement was, by far, his most interesting - although hardly fresh - his phrasing was awesome, and his vocals were, once again, top notch. I didn't understand the deal with those bagpipes, but I digress. Haha. 7.5

02. Sasha Simone
Say You Love Me
Very nice. She connected well with the material, her voice sounded divine on the song, her choices with the melody were spot on, and she was glowing - literally? - during her performance. 8

01. Sheena McHugh
Simple: Sheena looked and sounded like she was debuting a song written for her. This was awesome! Her stage presence was impressive, her vocals were on point, and she just looked like a legitimate star. 8
