The playoff circular concluded on “The Words” this week and today the Top 12 are established to handle off beginning November 20 for an opportunity to move forward one step closer to becoming the growing season 13 champion. Instructors Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton each have three performers left over. It’s now out of the hands of the instructors as all the singers will need the stage Monday to remain competitive for votes from viewers at home for the first time.
In prior months we’ve seen clear frontrunners emerge as early as the blind auditions and retain that momentum all the way through the finale. But Season 13 has such a depth in talent that it is becoming too near call. It’s truly any artist’s season to reduce. Gold Derby is now offering live blog coverage for each and every episode, including all of the recent playoff rounds on Monday, November 13, Wednesday, November 14 and Wed, November 15.
Below I did so my best to separate these singers predicated on who I really believe has the early on momentum, definitely not who I really believe will succeed. I required memorable occasions, iTunes chart reports and the communal media following of every artist under consideration to build this week’s electric power rankings of the Top 12. Who do you consider will succeed Season 13? Audio off in the comments
1. Noah Apple pc (Team Jennifer)
Had anyone told me after the blind auditions that I would ever consider putting this season’s young heartthrob near the top of any power search rankings I would have insisted only plagiarism may be the reason. But the reality is that kid has created memorable occasions and absolutely dominates iTunes. His Twitter following has exploded and even though it’s hard to trust someone like Noah could earn “The Speech,” I must respect his ability to draw in fans. So when those results shows are made the decision by Twitter saves, you better believe that Noah is the previous artist anyone would want to face off against. So for the present time, I believe Noah gets the momentum everyone should be seeking to steal.
2. Addison Agen (Team Adam)
The complex consistency of Addison’s voice offers her such a natural potential to emote lyrics. Sure, there were constant comparisons to Adele, but Addison’s ability stands on its own. With each performance you can view her self-confidence build and she captivates the audience without a need to overpower them. Her stage presence doesn’t hurt and I believe she could be evenly marketable to fans of pop, country and heart and soul.
3. Keisha Renee (Team Blake)
Probably one of the most interesting stories this season is that of Keisha Renee. After growing up singing in a gospel choir in Inglewood, California she went on to become background performer for Nicki Minaj. None of that feels like the typical way of someone with her hope a dreams of becoming a country superstar. Blake is obsessed with the thought of her vocals soaring over country radio and his support will need her a long way. Add to that the fact that she’s the largest communal media pursuing of any contestant thus far and some great shows under her belt and you have yourself an designer poised going the distance.
4. Jon Mero (Team Adam)
There is absolutely no all-around entertainer this year that can compare with Jon. He sings, dances and codes the stage in a manner that is similar to Season 12 success, Chris Blue. Although I found his early performances to be interesting, I will say that that I came across him to be significantly less than genuine. That all modified when he sent his spine-tingling playoff performance of “WHENEVER WE Were Young.” Now the sky is the limit for him and with the right coaching he could be another threat to win.
5. Brooke Simpson (Team Miley)
In writing, I’m not sure anyone this year fits the account of an “Voice” winner around Brooke. The pop powerhouse was plucked from obscurity and has absolutely wowed the mentors at every change. She’s likable and with each performance she seems to become even well informed on level. I’m not certain she has found the perfect tune for her tone of voice yet, however when she will expect fireworks.
6. Chloe Kohanski (Team Blake)
With her performance of “Landslide” in the knockouts, Chloe probably had the largest moment of the growing season. Weeks later, her recording of that music continues to be charting on iTunes. Her raspy, rock-tinged tone is able to deliver gut-wrenching lyrics to efficiency. But besides that standout performance, she’s kind of stayed in the center of the load up. Perfect tune choice will be key on her behalf, because her words isn’t as big as the majority of her competitors.
7. Adam Cunningham (Team Adam)
When I first noticed Cunningham sing I thought to myself, “he is going to earn ‘The Voice.'” The soulful country designer is obviously a threat and he’s one of the best this series has ever produced. He was a match made in heaven for Blake, but regrettably he was transferred along to Team Adam. While I believe Levine’s stock travelled up with this force in country on his team, Cunningham’s stock went down when he lost Blake as his coach. But this may perfectly be the first country victor that is not from Team Blake.
8. Davon Fleming (Team Jennifer)
Davon is like a male version of his coach, Jennifer, which makes them the perfect match. They both have big voices. They both love Whitney Houston. They both were brought up in the chapel. But Davon appears to have a bit of an wall structure up when he sings. He can hit many of these amazing records, but there is a passion that isn’t translating to the audience. If he could work through those issues, there aren’t many in the competition that can contend with his vocal gymnastics.
9. Janice Freeman (Team Miley)
Janice is a total wildcard and I feel like I always count her out and then she comes roaring onto the stage and demonstrates me wrong. Could that happen all season? Possibly. She’s the most brutal diva of the season and she contains nothing when she performs. I really do consider her audience may be limited, which explains why she ranks lower than she would if this series was actually about an artist’s speech alone.
10. Red Marlow (Team Blake)
Red comes with an old-school country tone of voice that his mentor, Blake, is in love with. And he really is a good singer. But viewing him on level sometimes has felt like watching paint dry. I’d favor to listen to his record than watch him perform, and he’s not going to gain unless he comes out of his shell somewhat. But I’m nearly certain his traditional country crooning will get him at least halfway through the growing season.
11. Shi’Ann Jones (Team Jennifer)
I think I love Shi’Ann more than most people this season which is the sole reason I’ve her toward the bottom. It’s because I could see the probable of this 16-year old diva-in-training and her speech is outstanding. She just doesn’t really learn how to put a full song together from starting to end. That being said, she actually is fun to watch and she reminds me of Aaliyah Moulden from Season 12, who was simply never considered a danger in the first rounds but finished up making it all the way to third place.
12. Ashland Build (Team Miley)
Ashland is a superb artist and the fact that I have her in previous place right now only speaks to the amount of talent this year. I really like her gritty, bad-ass country vixen vibe. I don’t necessarily think Miley chooses great songs on her behalf though. Of course, if I’m being genuine, I would have preferred either Moriah Formica or Karli Webster in Ashland’s place, which is why she ranks last on my list. But she’s plenty of time to show me wrong.
