Here’s the thing about The Voice: some seasons I give up on the show immediately if there isn’t a contestant I really, really like.
The Top 12 performed Monday night. Hopefully, tonight, it’s Troy Ramey who gets the boot and doesn’t make the Top 11.
Troy’s coach Gwen Stefani and guest coach Shania Twain both poked Troy about messing too much with Tom Petty’s original Free Fallin’ melody since it’s such a beloved hit.
When contestants take on a big song, it either has to be better than the original (which is very rare) or offer a fresh, cool new take.
This version of Free Fallin’ doesn’t do either.
If the YouTube views are any indication, my three favourite Voice artists are going to make it far this season.
As of Tuesday morning (at 7:42 a.m. to exact) here’s the views from last night’s performances:
Chris Blue (Love and Happiness) 148,999
Hunter Plake (Somebody That I Used to Know) 131,665
Stephanie Rice (White Flag) 96,500
(Compare those numbers to Troy’s Free Fallin’ 77,257) – Sarah
