Well, The Voice took a nasty turn last week when they voted out one of the most talented vocalists to ever appear on this show, India Carney, in favor of Koryn Hawthorne.
Look, I harbour no animosity toward Koryn. She is a passionate, if not “over the top” vocalist that everyone feels is the next best thing. But, if you listen – really listen – her voice is a technical nightmare. If she is not strangling her vocal sound, she is screaming at the top of her lungs and, yet, that is supposed to move me?
If someone doesn’t take hold of this young lady and liberate her vocal sound, she will have none left sooner than later. She is RUINING her vocal cords. It is excruciating to hear week after week.
Everyone decided that India’s vibrato was a problem and, yet, the growling vocal texture coming from Koryn’s mouth was perfectly acceptable. At least India worked to correct her problem and still it wasn’t enough.
Okay, end of rant. Time to move on to the Finals – which, at this point, is just filler because we know Sawyer Fredericks is the winner, correct? He has been stomping all over the iTunes Charts – it is actually quite funny to see on a daily basis. Good for him! He is a unique entity on this show and then only true original singer left in this competition.
The Voice Season 8 Top 4 Performance Show airs on Monday, May 18th at 8:00 PM on NBC.
I wish I could garner more excitement for this Finals but, with the exception of Sawyer, all of my favourites have exited the NBC building. What about you? Are you excited with the Final 4?
