The Voice Australia – Another Four Gone
It is starting to be a little like Lord Of The Flies or Survivor, in reality TV terms, as the teams have to keep on eating their own. Tonight it was Team Delta who went first with Rachael Leahcar getting the highest public vote making her safe, and then Delta had to pick either Danni, Viktoria or Glenn. She went with her backing singer Glenn Cunningham. Viktoria and Danni must have been thrilled because that relationship makes it such and even playing field. He can sing but there is no star quality and people wanting to vote for the older guy will be dialling the phone for Darren Percival.
Next it was Team Seal’s turn and Karise Eden scored the highest number of votes ensuring she was through to the next round. Seal then dumped Chris Sebastian, and Emma Louise Birdsall taking with him the strongest vocalist Fatai V. A tough choice but a good choice. Still I think it sucks that Emma Louise is out and Glenn Cunningham is still in.
Anyhow tonight it was Team Keith and Team Joel’s turn to show the viewer their talents.
Team Joel – Prinnie Stevens – Forever
Prinnie managed multiple fashion crimes all in the one outfit tonight with her palm tree leggings, a sequin tank top, and the studded fluro jacket. Prinnie always gives a professional performance with good singing and movement but it never hits any heights or as the coaches might say there were no moments. I can’t see her getting through next week.
Team Keith – Diana Rouvas – I Can’t Make You Love Me
Well Diana’s breasts were a surprise packet tonight. For such a petite singer she was in danger of giving a nipple slip. She has a great voice and it would appear Ricki-Lee who mentored with Team Seal does too.
Not sure what Karise, Fatai V, and Emma Louise Birdsall would make of that….
Diana was very intense when singing this song and at some points she looked like she looked like a cat bringing up a furball but she is still one of my favourite performers and wish she would get the media loving that some of the other ones do. Yes Rachael and Karise I am looking at you.
Team Joel – Lakyn Heperi – Friday on My Mind
His so called charisma is by-passing me. Last performance his discomfort was put down to not having his guitar, however he had it tonight and there were not a lot of improvement. Seal thought it was not the nerves that made him butcher The Cure classic. However it does not matter what he does it is likely he will get through.
Team Keith – Britanny Cairns – Walking In A Straight Line
She sang it well, however her performance was very much like she would do at Hillsong. Delta called her out saying she was wanting her to perform more, and the audience started booing. Joel told the audience to shut up, and said they were there to teach them. Which was kind of ironic considering there was no negativity from the judges on the first live show…
Team Keith – Adam Martin – Romeo and Juliette
Seriously Adam Martin has far more charisma then Lakyn Heperi in my opinion. I have a Dires Strait’s phobia but his rendition was good. He and Lakyn’s followers must be split as both of the singers have many similarities.
Team Joel – Sarah De Bono – How Will I Know
One of the stand outs on Team Joel, and she looks like a younger version of Grace from Will and Grace. She nailed the song.
Joel gushed “I am so proud of you – you don’t need me anymore”. Which does make you wonder who will get recording contracts out of this show.
Team Keith – Darren Percival – I Believe (When I Fall In Love)
Well he knocked it out of the ball park. His voting demographic the over 30 year old woman will be going bonkers over this attention grabbing performance. Just when you thought it could not get any better it did with its gospel type feel.
Team Joel – Ben Hazelwood – I’m With You
Did his brother commit suicide? As they are always eluding to it but nothing is ever said, and the lyrics to this song would certainly point in that direction. Ben who was formerly on New Zealand Idol is a nice little singer, but I cannot see him staying in the competition after this week.
Predictions on who will go from Team Keith are Adam Martin and Brittany Murphy, and Prinnie and Ben will leave from Team Joel’s team.
Who do you think will make it through to the next round?
