Who Will Win in The Voice?
I live The Voice better amongst the other singing competition shows we have these days. At least in The Voice, contestants are chosen not by their looks when they audition but with their God-given talent in singing; hence the title of the show. The judges don't see them until they turn their chairs to see who's singing. So, contestants make their impression from the sound of their voice and that's more hard to do because you have to convince a judge to make him or her turn to you.
I have missed season one so I am following the succeeding seasons. This season 3, the remaining 4 contestants, namely: Terry McDermott, Cassadee Pope, Nicholas David and Trevin Hunte.
The performance few nights ago was so intense. My favorite is Terry, Trevin and Cassedee who took the stage and nailed their songs like a pro! But I say, Terry is so remarkable on his rendition of Journey's I Want To Know What Love Is. He sang it bare with only a piano and a cello as accompaniment. In his rehearsal, while jamming with the band with audio technica, guitars, piano and drums, his coach Blake Shelton decided to make him sing without the accompaniment of the other band instruments. It would bring out the passion and tenderness of his voice. Terry even quipped that in that arrangement, there was nowhere to hide. He was out in the open. Come singing night, he seriouly nailed it and I had goose-bumps. His voice is simply on the spot.
Trevin is another favorite of mine. He took the stage and owned it when he sang Jennifer Hudson's version of the song, And I Am Telling You. Oh my, he has a natural high-pitch voice and I am sure that he made the 2 Jennifers who sang that song very, very proud. America is proud of him.
Cassadee is another show stealer with her rendition of I'm With You is so amazing. I wish I have a voice like hers. She just soars and soars and soars!
Now, I don't care who will win because 3 of my bets are in the top 4. Go guys!!!
