Top 3 Power Rankings: Who Will Win The Voice 2014?

| May 14, 2014 at 7:30 AM EDT
The Voice - Season 6

The Voice 2014 Top 3 were decided Tuesday night, and while I’m not surprised at the Top 3, I am surprised at the apparent order. I did not expect Christina Grimmie to have to be put into the Top 3 by America. She’s so much better than at least Jake Worthington. All that being said, […]

The Voice 2014 Top 5 took on two songs each Monday night and the battle for the spots in the finals raged on. As always, I’ll be reviewing each performance and assuaging the letter grade I think each one deserves. Kristen Merlin, “Gunpowder and Lead.” Good song choice. Well, I mean I wish she looked […]

The Voice 2014 Top 5 were announced last night with a shocking triple elimination that sent home three people who shouldn’t have gone home. I’m really not understanding this season of The Voice, but I’m going to try to figure out which of the Top 5 has what it takes to win this and fade […]

The Voice 2014 Top 8 took the stage Monday night. I think, so anyway. Because I may or may not have fallen asleep in the middle of it all. OK, I’m joking. I did not actually fall asleep. But I bet a lot of people did. It was an incredibly boring night. As always, I’ll […]

The Voice 2014 Top 10 took to the stage and the thing that stood out the most to me were song choices. I didn’t understand a lot of them. But luckily, most of the singers are solid, so they made it work for the most part. As always, I’ll be reviewing each performance and assigning […]

The Voice 2014 Top 10 Power Rankings

The Voice - Season 6

We’re already down to The Voice 2014 Top 10 and we’ve said goodbye to T.J. Wilkins and Dani Moz. America decided that Tess Boyer should be saved (who else is shocked she was even at risk of going home?) so the power rankings for the Top 10 are going to be interesting. Let’s get to […]

the-voice-2014-christina-grimme1

The Voice 2014 live shows kicked off Monday night with 12 pretty fantastic performances. I’ll be reviewing each performance and assigning the letter grade I think each one deserves. Bria Kelly, “Rolling in the Deep.” Adele. Really? Whatever, it was at least an edgier version of the song than I’m used to hearing, so I […]
