The Voice May 13, 2019 Top 8 Performances Revealed (Recap)
Hey, The Voice fans. Tonight, May 13, 2019, the top 8 contestants surely did perform for America’s vote. They performed both solos and duets this time. Of course, all the coaches: Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton were on hand.
Only four contestants will move on after tomorrow’s night’s results show. So, this was a big night. Tonight’s performances show was previously taped. So, it wasn’t LIVE.
Andrew Sevener from Team Blake kicked off the performances by singing, “Long Haired Country Boy.” Afterwards, Kelly said, “I feel like I was at a concert. I could tell what your record would sound like. A Cool rocked out version.” John said, “You owned the song and the stage.” Adam said, “It was your best performance.” Blake just said, “Wow, I don’t know where that came from, but it’s good that just happened at this moment. You represent what country fans love. You’re authentic.”
Next, Kim Cherry from Team Blake and Shawn Sounds from team John Legend hit the stage to perform a duet. They sang, “Eleanor Rigby.” There were no judges’ comments for the duet performances, probably due to time constraints.
After that, Gyth Rigdon from Team Blake hit the stage to sing, “God Bless the USA.” Afterwards, Kelly told Gyth, “You can’t critique the song. It was not my favorite vocal from you. I love the song choice.” John said, “Good song choice on the day of the British invasion. I agree. It wasn’t your greatest, but I loved the power and emotion.” Blake disagreed with the others saying, “It was far and away your best vocal performance. Welcome to the finale.”
Next, Kim Cherry from Team Blake hit the stage to sing, “Together Again.” Afterwards, Kelly told Kim, “Thank you for singing. You would be so good on Broadway. You have a huge voice.” John said, “It’s super cool that you’re wearing orange.” He also mentioned her many talents of playing the sax, piano and rapping. Blake said, “Let there will never be a question ever again that you are not a great singer. You couldn’t have done better.”
From there, Rod Stokes from Team Kelly and Maelyn Jarmom from Team Legend arrived on stage to do deliver a duet performance of the song ,”Yesterday.”
Next, Carter Lloyd Horne from Team Blake hit the stage to sing, “Take me to church.” Afterwards, Kelly told Carter, “It’s a cool genre, but the song was pitchy. Don’t get down on yourself.” John said, “You couldn’t find the key at the beginning. It’s okay. You’re a great singer.” Blake said, “None of us ever want that to happen, but you did recover, and you have a fan base.”
After that, Rod Stokes from Team Kelly hopped on stage to sing, “Go Rest High on that Mountain.” Afterwards, John told Rod, “It was lovely. Not technically your best, but it was very strong emotionally.” Adam said, “It was a good thing for you to do this song. It gave us a different look into who you are as a singer. I’m a huge fan.”
Blake said, “I love how connected you were to the song. The emotion can invade what happens technically, but emotion wins every time.” Kelly said, “You are in sync. You have a natural ability to move people.”
Next, Gyth Rigdon and Dexter Roberts from Team Blake arrived on stage to sing a duet for the song, “Hey Jude.” Again, no judges’ comments for the duets.
Right after that, Maelyn Jarmon from Team John Legend got on stage to sing, “Stay.” Afterwards, Adam told Maelyn, “You were amazing. You should win The Voice. You embody what the show is about. You’re the best singer we have right now.”
Blake said, “It’s hard to find new, great things to say about you. Your control, your poise. You’re spot on every time.” Kelly said, “I loved the lack of control on purpose. You played characters. It was my favorite performance.” John said,”You took risks, and you nailed it.”
Next, another duet performance featured Carter Lloyd Horne and Andrew Sevener from Team Blake. They sang, “Help.”
Right after that, Dexter Roberts from team Blake showed up on stage to sing, “Here without You.” Afterwards, Kelly told Dexter, “I love your voice. I thought it was smart to step outside of the country genre.” Blake said, “It was a good choice. Your voice is one of my favorites. It cuts through so good.”
After that, Shawn Sounds from Team John Legend closed out the night of performances by singing, “A Song for You.” Afterwards, Adam told Shawn, “Thank you for putting on a singing clinic for everybody here tonight. It was the craziest performance of the night. Heartfelt.” Kelly said, “You came out and just sang your tail off.” John said, “You gave the best two performances of the show.”
