@DesertFox @MyTryst @mr9900 OMG yes. This is the correct answer, in my opinion. No other person has taken so much potential and crapped the bed so thoroughly. She was rumored to have even had the producers behind her. There was no reason she shouldn't have made it to the finale over Luke Friend. But she just couldn't get it together.

I have no idea why they're styling him like a 90s alternative rock singer on that cover.

@gladysjeffrey I agree with you completely. I don't like this twist at all.


Strangely enough. I also thought Luke Wade would win this season when I first heard his voice. Then I switched to James David Carter. And now I have no idea. I want Matt McAndrew to win (great comparison with John Denver! They could be long lost relatives, haha), but given how sporadic the voting has been this season, you never really know. But I'd put all my money behind Matt if I were a betting man (which, thankfully, I'm not haha).

@matthewtodd1212 For The Voice, yes, I always do the recaps. :) 


I also do Survivor, The X Factor UK, and a bunch of other shows. Hell, I have Agents of SHIELD and The Flash to do tonight before I can even think about bed.

I don't know why they show these suspense-killing vote totals on the screen. It's not like anyone is going to catch Ryan in the next 90 seconds.

We should probably put up some kind of disclaimer so people know for the future. But don't worry about it.

@matthewtodd1212 Oh I definitely think Sugar is only still here because of Pharrell. I love her, but I can't pretend she wouldn't be eliminated if Pharrell hadn't saved her twice. America just doesn't seem to like her that much, if iTunes rankings are any indication. And her old-fashioned song choices haven't really helped. She could do current songs in a classic style, but Pharrell gives her old-fashioned songs which does nothing to help her sound relevant. It's unfortunate, because I really like Sugar. But I'm thinking this is it for her tonight.

@Jay Styles Pretty much. And it wouldn't surprise me if he ended up winning on the strength of that backstory. This would be a far better twist if it came at an earlier point than the finale. And if it allowed people from the Top 20 who didn't make the Top 12 to have a shot. But if America didn't vote for you the first time, and didn't save you with the Instant Save, then I don't see the particular point in bringing them back. At least with the Top 20, you could make the case that if it were 100% America's vote and not 66.5% America / 33.5% Coaches, that people like Ricky Manning or Elyjuh Rene would have made it in.

@Idolwild At top 3, America votes to bring back a previously eliminated Top 12 contestant, and it becomes a Final 4.

@Jay Styles I love how the Top 10 is comprised of the songs sung tonight, but by the original artists instead of by The Voice contestants. As if the originals got a big boost. That said, I'm all about Matt sitting pretty at No. 19.

Also, have there been any other contestants in this show's history that were eliminated before the Top 12 that you think could have won?

At least a quarter of this Top 12 is comprised of the wrong people.

@tonytan3457 The ones who go early have the advantage on the app. I wouldn't put too much stock in it though, since people will start voting like crazy now that they've seen Ricky go. Can't really explain Jean being so low though, other than that the competition is thick on Team Pharrell, I guess. Either that, or she's just not connecting with people, for whatever reason.
