Once again, the strongest voices from Season 9 of The Voice compete head-to-head with the hope of advancing to the next round.  

Known as the Knockout Rounds, this phase of the show is the singer’s last hope to achieve a spot in the live shows -aka the Play Offs -which begin next  week. 

I am still ecstatic that one of my favorites – Braiden Sunshine – is still involved in this production. His Knockout performance – and I mean this literally and figuratively – was exceptional. This young man is equipped with some serious vocal and performing skills, is charismatic and – most important – possesses  a skilled technical foundation to his vocal delivery. I was doing the happy dance here after his “Feelin’ Good” performance. It would have been hard for anyone to beat the star power he brought to this performance. 

Tune in to The Voice on NBC on Monday, November 2nd at 8:00 PM for the last episode of the Knockout Rounds, followed by Tuesday November 3rd’s show at 9:00 PM highlighting the journey of the Top 20 Finalists.

And don’t forget to stop by the comments section below this article and share your thoughts.  

In case you missed it, here is Braiden’s performance from last week!   And don’t forget to download Braiden’s “Feelin Good” Studio version on iTunes or, if you wish, you can stream it on Apple Music.
