The Voice - Season 12

The Voice kicks off its 12th season on Monday, February 27th, 2017 on NBC and as per usual, they will start with the blind auditions, which usually takes up the first 5-6 episodes. Then, those who make it through the blind auditions (which will take place in various cities across the United States) will move on to the Battle rounds, then the knockout rounds. In these two rounds, singers can be stolen from one coach by another as they fill out their roster of 20 singers, who will then go on to the Live Shows. This is where the action really heats up as singers will be voted on by fans, who can either vote on social media and by purchasing songs by the artists on iTunes. This process will be continued until a winner is crowned, and that winner will receive $100,000 and a record deal. There will also be a slew of special performances throughout the season. You will definitely be seeing performances by the coaches, and many other special guests will be dropping by.

Show Recap – The Voice

The Voice wrapped up its 12th season this week in another entertaining finale. A singer that has been one of the favorites all season capitalized on his talent to win it all. It was a happy ending but one that many people had expected.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Brennley Brown and Hunter Plake were both eliminated as Jesse Larson won the Instant Save. Prior to that, Vanessa Ferguson and TSoul were both eliminated.

What Happened This Week

For this week’s two-part finale, there were a slew of non-competition performances, 12 in all, with the remaining singers doing duets with the likes of Cee Lo Green, Rascal Flatts and Alessia Cara, while Jennifer Hudson did a solo song for the final performance as she will be a coach on The Voice next season.

For the competition, each of the four remaining singers would do a solo song, a duet with their coach and an original song. Coming in fourth place was Jesse Larson, who was the final representative for Adam’s team. While Aliyah Moulden would come in third place for Blake’s team. Blake, who has been a winning coach on The Voice a total of five times so far, had two singers in the final four, but he wouldn’t claim his sixth win as Lauren Duski would come in second place. That meant it was a win for Chris Blue, who represented Alicia’s team. Alicia joined Christina Aguilera as the second female coach to win The Voice after she won in Season 10. It was also a fitting win for Chris, who was the best singer in the competition all season long and if he hadn’t won on The Voice, you would have heard from him somehow. He is a true powerhouse who can do a lot of different styles and it’ll be interesting to watch his career grow. Chris also did a powerful rendition of “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. with Usher, who was a former coach on The Voice, and that showed that he could handle his own with a proven superstar.

The Voice should be back this September with Blake and Adam as coaches, along with Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus, who will return after a one-year hiatus. It was fun to watch Blake and Miley go at each other last season, real or fake, so it should be another entertaining season of The Voice.

Previous Recaps

Show Recap – The Voice

It was a tough week for Adam Levine’s team on The Voice this week. His squad competed hard but they ended up losing two singers. That includes one that had been in danger for a couple weeks now. 

What Happened Heading Into This Week

For the second week in a row, Mark Isaiah won the Instant Save as he stayed in the competition over Stephanie Rice, winning 59% of the vote.

What Happened This Week

The iTunes bonus multiplier went to Lauren Duski and Hunter Plake this week, as they finished #9 and #10, respectively. The bottom three consisted of Vanessa Ferguson, Lilli Passero and once again, Mark Isaiah. That means the trio went into Tuesday’s episode fighting for the Instant Save, and Lilli sang “Stormy Weather”, notably sang by Lena Horne, but it was also recorded by a lot of legends over the years. Mark went with Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”, and Vanessa chose “For Once In My Life” by Stevie Wonder (again, also recorded by a lot of singers over the years). For the non-competition performances, Blake sang his own song, “Every Time I Hear That Song”, while Maren Morris did “I Could Use A Love Song” and Charlie Puth sang “Attention”.

Mark finally bowed out as he won 18% of the vote, while Lilli made it interesting by winning 38% of the vote. However, Vanessa would stay in the competition by winning 44% of the vote to claim the Instant Save.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Chris Blue still stands above the rest after his rousing rendition of “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars, and again, regardless of whether or not he wins this, you’re going to know his name for a long time. TSoul also had a good week as he did “At This Moment” by Billy Vera and the Beaters, and Brennley Brown did as well after he sang “Anyway” by Martina McBride. Credit should also go to Aliyah Moulden, who sang “Jealous” by Labrinth, and it is a song about one of his parents leaving his family when he was four. Aliyah, who is only 15, lost her father and could barely finish the song without crying, but she got through it. Hopefully, Aliyah can use that performance to propel herself through the remaining episodes of The Voice, which heads into the semifinals next week.

It was a cutthroat week on The Voice but one singer managed to survive. The crooner escaped elimination once again via the Instant Save on The Voice. Still, the field has been whittled down to the Top 10.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week came down to Troy Ramey and Mark Isaiah for the Instant Save, and Mark won out to eliminate Troy.

What Happened This Week

The iTunes vote multiplier once again came into effect, and two singers picked it up as Lauren Duski finished third to receive the bonus, while Hunter Plake finished seventh. They made it through, along with TSoul, Lilli Passero, Vanessa Ferguson, Jesse Larson, Brennley Brown and Chris Blue. That sent Stephanie Rice and Mark Isaiah to the bottom two.

Outside of the competition, Gwen and her team covered “Fix You” by Coldplay, while Alicia and her team sang “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin. There was also a performance by Season 10 winner Alisan Porter, who did her debut single, “Deep Water”.

When it came time for the Instant Save performances, Stephanie did “Issues” by Julia Michaels, while Mark countered with “7 Years” by Lukas Graham. Once again, Mark managed to stave off elimination as Stephanie went home, even though many felt her performance was much better.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

It was a very good week for most of the singers on The Voice, but the favorites should still be Chris Blue, who did “When A Man Loves A Woman” by Percy Sledge and Brennley Brown, who did “River” by Joni Mitchell. There was also an argument that Vanessa Ferguson should have been in the bottom two with Mark after her rendition of “Diamonds” by Rihanna, but Stephanie got a bout of bad luck to get stuck there, and then shouldn’t have been eliminated. But that’s how the game goes sometimes.

Next week, iTunes bonus multiplier will once again be in full effect, but the big change comes for the Instant Save as three singers will go into the bottom, and then two singers will leave as The Voice is quickly wrapping up its season. There are only three weeks left with two episodes in each week, so things are about to start moving very fast, and no singer remaining in the competition can afford to have a poor week.

The second week of the Live Playoffs happened this week on The Voice in what was an emotional evening all around. It evening included a heartfelt tribute to a former contestant.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

The Top 24 was cut down to the Top 12 last week as the Live Playoffs got underway. 

What Happened This Week

On Monday, the Top12 performed and they were advised by Shania Twain, who also sat in as a judge. Brennley Brown reached #7 on iTunes, so he received the bonus multiplier, while nine other singers went through due to the public vote. Those singers were Jesse Larson, Stephanie Rice, Aliyah Moulden, Chris Blue, Lauren Duski, Lilli Passero, TSoul, Hunter Plake and Vanessa Ferguson. That meant Troy Ramey and Mark Isaiah would have to square off on Tuesday night in the Instant Save performances. Here, Troy went with “Drift Away” by Dobie Gray (although most people remember Uncle Kracker’s 2003 version), while ark countered with “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars. In the end, it would be Troy that was eliminated, which now brings the field down to 11 singers remaining.

There was a poignant moment on Tuesday as well as Adam and his team did a tribute to Christina Grimmie, a singer who was on Adam’s team back in Season 6. She was murdered in a shooting in Orlando in June, so Adam and his team sang “Hey Jude” by the Beatles, and the Christina Grimmie Foundation was also announced as it will benefit those affected by gun violence, as well as breast cancer.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Three performances seemed to stand out, starting with Brennley, who got the iTunes bonus multiplier for his rendition of “Long, Long Time” by Linda Ronstadt, while Vanessa did “A Song For You” by Leon Russell. However, the best of the best is Chris, who did “Love and Happiness” by Al Green. It doesn’t matter if he wins The Voice this season or not, it looks like Chris is destined for big things in the music industry. But he can’t afford to take his foot off the gas this season as it does look good on your resume to win The Voice, which will be back at the same time next week with the Top 11 performance and results episodes.

The Live Playoffs took place this week on The Voice, making it a very entertaining episode. It was just as wild as many hoped it would be.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

The Top 20 was set as each coach had five singers to take to the Live Playoffs, which is when the action really starts to heat up on The Voice. 

What Happened This Week

For the Live Playoffs, the Top 20 would be joined by four Coach Comeback artists who were eliminated earlier in the show. From there, the results were voted on in real-time by Twitter and The Voice app.

Twelve singers took to the stage on Monday night, and six were sent hom as Casi Joy, Felicia Temple, Aaliyah Rose, Anatalia Villaranda, Jack Cassidy and Ashley Levin failed to make the cut. That means TSoul, Aliyah Moulden, Lauren Duski, Chris Blue, Vanessa Ferguson and Stephanie Rice will go to the Top 12. TSoul and Stephanie were the choices of Blake and Alicia, respectively, while the rest got in via the public vote.

On Tuesday night, the second group of 12 performed, and the following were eliminated: Johnny Gates, Quizz Swanigan, JChosen, Johnny Hayes, Hanna Eyre and Josh West. Troy Ramey made it through, as did Brennley Brown, Hunter Plake, Mark Isaiah, Lilli Passero and Jesse Larson. Troy was Gwen’s choice to stay on, and Mark was Adam’s choice.

None of the Coach Comeback artists managed to make it to the Top 12.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Aliyah had a great week as she sang “Mercy” by Duffy, while Lauren Duski matched her on the opening night of the Live Playoffs with her rendition of “Someone Else’s Star” by Davis Daniel. Chris Blue sounded smooth as he did “Love On The Brain” by Rihanna, and Stephanie Rice was also strong with “Every Breath You Take” by The Police on what was a very good first night.

On the second night, Brennley Brown did a great version of “Fly” by Maddie and Tae, and she might be the overall favorite right now. It was a bit of a shock to see Quizz eliminated after his version of “My Girl” by The Temptations, and he didn’t even get saved by Gwen, who might have made a mistake in taking Troy, who sang “A Case Of You” by Joni Mitchell. Overall, the second night was a bit of a letdown, but we’re now at the Top 12 on The Voice.

Bet on The Voice at BetDSI

On this week’s episode of The voice, the Top 20 was set. Now we’ll head into the Live Playoffs, which is getting into the business end of the season. It’s where the cream rises to the top.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week featured two episodes of Knockout rounds with six singers going home, but three were stolen and live to perform another day.

What Happened This Week

Blake had two Knockout rounds left on his plate as Lauren took out Andrea, while Aliyah defeated Carolina. Adam also had two Knockouts to deal with as Jesse edged out Davina, and Mark defeated Malik. Alicia took Vanessa over Jack, but she wasn’t done yet as Gwen still had two Knockouts herself. First, JChosen won out over Brandon, while Troy defeated Stephanie in the last performance of the night.  But Alicia stepped in to steal Stephanie and fill out her team. That means all four coaches have their five singers to take into the Live Playoffs.

The second episode was called “Road To The Live Shows”, which basically means it was a recap episode that went all the way back to the blind auditions. It focused largely on the Top 20 singers that are left in the competition and unseen footage as well.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Here is where it starts to get interesting on The Voice as the best of the best made it (for the most part, anyway). You could look at someone like Quizz, who at 13, is the youngest singer to ever make it to the Top 20 and he has a lot of promise. He was almost done when he lost to Chris in the first episode of the Knockout rounds, but Gwen used her steal on him because she sees his potential. Gwen also used a steal on 15-year-old Brennley in the Battle rounds and she has paid off, making it to this point. Chris is another singer to watch (he should arguably be the favorite), along with Casi and Lilli as we head into the Live Playoffs, which will be both episodes next week. The 20 singers will be split up over the two episodes, and the results will be voted on by Twitter and The Voice app. Four singers will be going home each night as the stakes are getting higher and higher on The Voice, which doesn’t have much time left now.

The Voice kicked off this week with two of the three Knockout Rounds. This is where the show starts to get intense as the field gets cut down. This week, we saw a number of singers get stolen by another coach as we keep our eye on the Live Playoffs and the Top 12.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week featured the final two rounds of the Battle Rounds, in which coaches tried to bolster their team ahead of the Knockout Rounds.

What Happened This Week

Monday’s episode featured six rounds (the difference between the Battles and the Knockouts is, in the Battles, singers do a duet; for the Knockouts, each singer does their own song), and four artists saw their dream ended as Autum lost to Hanna, and Johnny Hayes lost to Jost West, both on Adam’s team. On Gwen’s team, Hunter defeated Johnny Gates, and on Blake’s team, Casi got the better of Felicia. Two singers got stolen as Quizz lost to Chris on Alicia’s team, but but he wound up on Gwen’s team. Lilli lost to Ashley, once again on Alicia’s team, but she ended up on Adam’s team after a challenge from Blake as well.

Tuesday’s episode had three rounds of the Knockout stage, and two singers were eliminated as Dawson lost to Anatalia on Alicia’s team, and Enid lost to TSoul on Blake’s team. However, Blake got one singer back as he stole Aaliyah, who lost to Brennley on Gwen’s team.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

There were probably a few questions to be asked as Hanna over Autumn caused a bit of a stir on the internet, and Adam’s decision to keep Josh over Johnny Hayes, and Ashley over Lilli was also a strange decision. Tuesday’s episode was pretty much right on in terms of who should have been stolen, and who should have been eliminated, but surely someone will have questioned those decisions as well.

Next week will feature one more episode of the Knockout Rounds, followed by an episode called “Road To The Live Shows”, which will likely be a retrospective look back at the season so far. Then the real fun starts with two rounds of the Live Playoffs, and then the Top 12 starts by the end of April. We’re getting close to the business end of the season on The Voice, and all singers will have to find another gear because one bad night, and their dream will come to a screeching halt.

Bet on The Voice at BetDSI

The Blind Auditions portion of The Voice are done, which means it’s time to move into the second phase of the show. All four coaches are stocked with 12 singers to go into the Battle Rounds with.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week’s pair of episodes were simply a continuation of the Blind Auditions as the coaches filled out their teams.

What Happened This Week

There were three episodes this week, and in the first episode, there was only one singer who was wanted by all four coaches. 32-year-old Valerie Ponzio shook them up with her cover of “Ring Of Fire” by Johnny Cash, and she ended up going to Blake. The teenagers continued to get the coaches going as three of them made it in on Monday, led by 15-year-old Hanna Eyre, who sang “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift and she was wanted by Adam, Gwen and Blake, and Hanna chose Adam.

There were nine performances on Tuesday, compared to 13 on Monday, and no singer was wanted by all four coaches. Everyone needed two more singers to fill their team, and Alicia’s team wasn’t complete until the very last performance as 26-year-old Chris Blue went with ”The Tracks Of My Tears” by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. This marked the end of the Blind Auditions, although on Wednesday, there was a recap episode for this round, along with a little sneak peek of what is to come in the Battle Rounds, of which there are four slated so far. 

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

There are a lot of talented singers going into the Battle Rounds, and Alicia has a whole slew of them on her team. Felicia Temple, Chris Blue, Quizz Swanigan and Lilli Passero were all thought to be near the top of the list for this round, so she will have something to work with here. Blake also has a couple of blue-chippers in Casi Joy and TSoul, and you should always consider singers from Blake’s team to win it all, considering he has been the winning coach five times. But the Battle Rounds is where the action starts to heat up as coaches can steal singers from opposing coaches, so a singer that is a poor fit for one coach might just flourish under another coach. This is what makes this part of The Voice arguably the most interesting of the season.

Bet on The Voice at BetDSI

The Voice continued with their blind auditions this week as the judges are still filling out their teams. This is the fun part of the show as we get to see a number of unique auditions before we head to the Battle Rounds.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week was a three-episode premiere for The Voice’s 12th season, with four hours in total as the blind auditions got underway.

What Happened This Week

Monday’s episode was two hours long with 11 performances, and two singers failed to make the cut: Ericka Corban and Griffin Tucker. Only two singers was wanted by all four coaches, and that was Troy Ramey, who picked Gwen’s team, and Josh West, who went with Adam. It was a big night for Adam, who got Josh, along with Kawan DeBose, Taylor Alexander and Gaby Borromeo. Alicia picked up two more for hear team in Jack Cassidy (whose uncle is David Cassidy and his grandmother is Shirley Jones, both from The Partridge Family) and Missy Robertson. Gwen got Troy and Aaliyah Rose, while Blake picked up Micah Tryba.

Tuesday’s episode was the standard hour, and none of the six singers got buzzes from all four coaches, and only one was eliminated as Paul Adrian didn’t make the cut. Adam got Malik Davage for his team, while Alicia added Lauryn Judd. Blake got Josh Hoyer, while Gwen added Johnny Gates and Caroline Sky.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

So far, it looks like the teenagers are preparing to take over as there have been 11 chosen so far. The youngest is 13-year-old Quizz Swanigan, who made his mark singing “Who’s Lovin’ You”, a Motown staple that was recorded by lots of different singers, but the most famous version from the Jackson 5 and notably, a 10-year-old (almost 11) Michael Jackson. At the other end of the spectrum, 40-year-old Josh Hoyer was the final singer to get in on Tuesday as he sang “Oh Girl” by The Chi-Lites, and he could be excellent pick-up for Blake, whom Josh picked over Gwen. Hoyer is also the frontman for Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal, a funk/soul band which has released albums and toured in the past. This could give him a huge edge going forward.

Next week’s episodes will wrap up the blind auditions before going on to the Battle Round, which are slated for four episodes, tentatively, but there could be more. But right now, the focus is on the kids on The Voice, and it’ll be interesting to see if they continue that trend next week as the blind auditions come to an end.

Champion

The Season 11 winner was Sundance Head, who hails from Porter, Texas and defeated Billy Gilman of Hope Valley, Rhode Island. Head, whose birth name is Jason, made it to the semifinals on the sixth season of American Idol, but he sealed the deal here against Gilman, who was the favorite for most of the 11th season of The Voice. Gilman was thought to have the edge as he had already released albums as a child country artist, but Head got consistently better throughout the season and he came out on top. Head is the son of Roy Head, who had a hit in 1965 with “Treat Her Right”. Sundance got his country background from his father, but like Roy, he can move into other genres as well.

The winning coach was Shelton, who won for the fifth time, while Levine was the runner-up. Shelton’s five wins leads all of the coaches, while Levine has won three times, and Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams and Usher all have one win apiece on The Voice.
