“I don’t know what America is thinking”

Delivered on Tuesday the sound The first 13 results that determined the top 10 finishers of the season are shown. Earlier in the evening, host Carson Daly explained that voting would be based on the nine contestants Monday’s 13 Best ArtistsAfter that, the remaining four singers will compete for the last spot through instant singing and real-time audience audio.

On Monday I predicted that Eric, from Camilla’s team, would be among the four finalists, having relaxed his usual stage presence and getting lost in the shuffle as a result; Gwen’s Alyssa Vitrato, who really didn’t need to make the top 13; And up-and-coming group Gwen member Kiqué played it safe this week with a cute karaoke cover of Stevie Wonder. I was right about all three.

However, pop singer Rowan Grace of Team Blake believed she had missed her ABBA cover and assumed she would be in danger. But I should have taken into account Blake Shelton’s widespread popularity among believers the voiceVisitors. Rowan survived, making Blake the only coach of the season to place all four direct qualifying semifinalists in the top 10. If you’re doing the math, Blake’s cast in Season 22 is now 40%. Man is simply unstoppable – that is, until he stops himself and retires the sound Next year. I’m curious to see how the show’s voting patterns will change if Blake stays the same in Season 24.

But… again This is the season Season one of Contender 22 did just that No Camilla’s alternative rocker Devex killed the Arctic Monkeys song on Monday, worried about being at risk this week – a the voice First! — and in the process, he established himself as the new pioneer. John Legend asked DeVix “RU mine?” It’s “the perfect song for who you are as an artist and a singer”; Proud coach Camila Cabello said, “I’m out Super star This!”; and former and current DJ KROQ the voice Host Carson Daly agreed, telling Davis, “Thank you for bringing rock ‘n’ roll back. the sound – A sound and a feeling we’ve been missing for a while! “

But it seems the voice The audience didn’t miss a rock band at this show – or at least they didn’t miss Britrock. Oh right. Here’s hoping Devix covers Franz Ferdinand, The Crips, Muse of Kasabian Banger next week.

But there was still hope that Devex would be around next week, and when it came time to sing Save, he did well with a great rendition of the Anglophilic Killers’ “When I Was Young.” This performance was less dark, menacing, treading the path of the previous night – it was anthemic, upbeat, gospel and solid stadium-worthy – and it seemed not to have lost it all.

“Listen, I don’t know what America was thinking when it didn’t vote for you yesterday,” Camilla grumbled. “America, you can redeem yourself now. Set yourself free! … America, you are making a huge mistake if you let Devix go. Want to hear his voice in a song? Hear his voice in a very emotional song. You do No Will you release that sound! “

But Devix faced stiff competition this season from another maverick of indie rock, Gigi. “I will do No You want to make that call,” Carson admitted.

At least between Eric and Alyssa it seemed clear that America didn’t need to call. First Eric sang… “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus. Oops. People like Eric whyMy princess? Eric was a talented showman, and ArtistWhen she looked absolutely gorgeous with pastel hair as the solo star of “The Eric Who Show,” she was a sight to behold. I don’t know why she felt compelled to leave the brand this week with her exciting story choices and fashion department, but she really did sabotage herself. And he felt he was not on his own terms. When Shivering sang “The Climb” to Miley, “My faith is shaking,” it was true, and when he ended his song with “I Love You All,” he clearly knew “The Eric Who Show” was over. A shame.

As for teenage pop star Alyssa, Billie Eilish’s age-appropriate hit “Ocean Eyes” is actually one of her strongest performances — certainly better than Monday’s thin, semi-ridiculous Selena cover — more vulnerable, more relatable and more. It suits her soft voice. But it was still an undercooked and inconsistent performance, indicating that it was better to wait for the test. the sound In a couple of seasons.

Returning to the topic of redemption, KK hoped for compensation to himhimself, because after performing some of the season’s left-field inventive performances (a serious iteration of Outcast’s Hey Ya! So Gigi allowed lamenting on weekends Fifty Shades of Grey “I deserve it” theme – He deserves it, all right. It was 50 Degrees awesome – lots of confidence and catchy vocals.

“KK is clearly going through America. Correct? Gwen pleaded with Stephanie. He has Malehuman voice … I feel this is wrong, America. We need to push the cake forward.

So, after a commercial break and a five-minute voting period, America considered Camila and Gwen’s plea and saved… Kiqué. I can’t argue with that decision, and I’m glad Kiqué got a reprieve. But the devil Get started I was on the bottom four to begin with – not when he came out of his shell and started breaking mold.

“Davix, no matter what happens tonight, I think you’re a huge talent,” Camilla assured the 28-year-old rock queen before she learned her fate. “I love listening to your songs in my car. I think you are a talented musician. You should have done this. Thank you for being so vulnerable and open to me.”

Hopefully this won’t be the last we hear from Devix. Meanwhile, the top 10 will do battle next Monday, and Kiqué will learn from this week’s close call and return to taking risks and flipping the script — or Kiqué-fying — with some unconventional song choices. I’ll see you later.
