The Voice Australia – The Fourth Showdown – The Boys Were Weak
It was Team Delta and Team Joel to have the last of their singers up for the showdown and there were few standout performances. Celia Davey will go through from Delta’s team as will Lyric McFarland from Joel’s but after that it is anyone’s guess.
Team Delta started strongly with competition front runner Celia Davey sing a Joni Mitchell, and you know she is a star when it was irritating when they cut to shots of the judges during the song.
Tim Morrison sang Learn To Fly the former had a a stage persona but his vocals well all over the shop. He may have been having issues hearing as he kept of fidling with his earpieces. But Seal and Delta both stood up and cheered and Joel thought he killed it and it was his best performance on the show.
Nathan Allgood sang When I Was Your Man. It was not pitch perfect but he has a lovely voice. Seal thought his voice was better than Bruno Mars, however Joel did not think he was not a star yet. Joel said he was on a tough team.
Ben Goldstein sang Waiting in Vain, reggae was a bold choice. I don’t know why the judges keep on saying to him I think you know who you are. What that has to do with how well you sing? Maybe it means they don’t have to talk about his actual voice.
It was time for Team Joel and first up was Michael Stangel. He has a compelling back story with his heart and brain tumour but regardless of the heart wrenching story is voice is not the worst in the competition. He sang Home, which was not the greatest song choice. And song choice is crucial in this competition. He may have been saved in the battle rounds but he is a strong chance of making it to the live shows.
Kathy Hinch singing Bleeding Love. This was The X Factor UK Leona Lewis’s winning single. Is reality TV starting to eat itself. She is one of the few pop divas in the competition along with Caterina Torres and she hit some amazing high notes but the judges were concerned she did not connect with the audience.
Ricky and Delta were not enthusiastic, but Seal said could not take his eyes off her and Joel thought she did the best she had ever done.
Lyric McFarland sang Let’s Stay Together and she brought the house down however it will be great to see her sing a more contemporary R&B song. Ricky thought it was perfection.
Super cool, well at least in his mind, Danny Ross was sing All Along The Watch Tower. He has an interesting voice but not sure he is the most likeable of contestants. He is just so super serious. Joel said you are out of your mind in the best way possible and he would take that as a compliment. He is the most likely contender to shit bag reality TV and the show after he is eliminated.
The Voice Australia results show on tonight at 7.30pm.
