Let the live shows begin!! This week, The Voice begins the whittling down process in pursuit of another winner. The Final 12 will sing for your votes on Monday, November 20th at 8:00 PM with the results being revealed on Tuesday, November 21st – all on NBC, of course.

On the Results Show, 10 will be voted through to the next live show, while the Bottom Two will perform for the viewing audience for the dreaded Instant Save on Twitter. Crazy. Do the producers think everyone sits in front of their TV in real time anymore? During the holiday season?

Anyway, I do wish all the singers the very best of luck. Comments are now open for business.

About Masterclass Lady

  1. I gotta do a play-by-play cause I’m old, and I live by the three second rule; if I don’t say it out loud or write it down within three seconds, it’s gone forever.

    So far, I liked Red, and Jon (while I’m not crazy about his falsetto, I love his natural voice, he has a fifties vibe to his voice)


  2. Ummm! I am now a HUGE fan of Chloe, Wow!


  3. Red was decent. He needs to be careful to mind his singing while he is doing the star walk thing. (and get that hat!)

    Chloe is growing on me. She used to have a wicked vibrato thing that sounded like a goat to me, so tonight was a improvement for her.

    I still like the young girl, Addison I believe, it is. Very nice voice, good musical taste and a very nice well balance young lady. Very impressive for 16. I like Sara Bareilles but I wouldn’t have chosen that song. She sang well though.

    The kid with the hair ought to do some Stray Cats. He’s got his star power machine all tuned up.


  4. I didn’t know the song that Red sang, at this point for him, song choice is going to be crucial, as there are a lot of really good contestants and it looks like it will go week by week voting, for whoever shines. Lol, yes, a few has their star power turned up.

    I have no clear winner at this point, if I had to guess who will be going home, I would say Delta Dawn girl.


  5. I agree Vonnie. Song choice and too much band were my main issues with Red. Every song you choose needs to be something your fans can’t live without a copy of. I think he is a contender if he plays the game right.

    I still don’t care for “Delta Dawn” girl but They are pushing her pretty hard. I have a song choice for her though. I believe it was the Georgia Satellites and this may not be the title but the hook was “Don’t gimme no lines and keep your hands to yourself.” A song for our times!

    I’m getting tired of the outrageous lies the judges tell. Blake’s gal that is trying to break into country music who did Midnight “Train to Georgia” didn’t pull it off. If she had gone with a straight cover it would have been better, musically anyway, but it sounded disjointed as if she couldn’t find the melody. They gave her a standing O and Blake went on about how beautiful it was. I like the lady and I hope she can actually break into country music but that wasn’t beautiful.

    The last lady, Janice I believe, also a very nice lady and has appeared to be a force in the earlier rounds. I hope she has great success given what she has been through Again, while not as off as the previously mentioned singer, she wasn’t as good as she has previously been and didn’t rise to the level of the praise.

    I don’t know about who will win or loose but I still like the young girl.


  6. Addison was the best of the night for me.


  7. That’s what I think as well, Idol Girl. There is some depth in that young woman. Nice tone and very mature control to her vocals. Hanging out at her Dad’s record shop hasn’t hurt her either. She is the only one in the top 10, currently #9, on iTunes.

    The Country chart is interesting with Keisha Renee at #6 I believe and Red all the way down to 22. Didn’t see that coming.


  8. I’m guessing Mark and Lindsey for the coveted Mirror Ball. What say you?


  9. I’m a little shocked that Red didn’t chart higher, song choice?

    Here we go…


  10. Gene,

    Yes! The over praising has been an ongoing issue since the Idol days, except for Simon. I always appreciated his unwavering opinion and usually agreed with him. I like Keisha’s voice, but am not sure about the country lane?!? Definitely sounds more R&B to me.


  11. Thinking the shocker in the bottom three tonight will be Red…


  12. Yeah, song choice. I’m really surprised that Red would chose a “just ok” song, given his history.

    A contestant needs to record something that the fans want to buy, I have several from over the years in my collection and sometimes when I do a random shuffle these songs will play and I’m reminded how good some of these contestants that didn’t make it were or I wonder who on earth that was. A few of them were bought just to support a contestant that I liked but most were because I liked their take on the song.

    I picked up Addison’s track this morning and the iTunes version is very nice.


  13. I didn’t realize that Jordan Fisher, the kid that won DWTS, was from her in the Birmingham area and in fact, lives between two of my brothers. Small world. He is an incredible dancer but I didn’t support his win because he’s a professional.


  14. I am really shocked that Jon went home…again, song choice! I didn’t think that song did anything to showcase his voice. While I felt his voice had a fifties doowoop vibe, a Jackson 5 song wasn’t what I was thinking for his voice.

    I don’t know if I’ve said this before or not but I HATE THE INSTANT SAVE. Just call it as it is, the person with the least votes. Because you know the person who received the least votes sometimes ends up being saved and the one who was saved by people taking their time to vote for them ends up going home. Rant over…

    Gene that’s cool about the dancing guy living close to your brothers…you hit on the very reason I quit watching, him being a professional. Between Jennifer Gray and a few of the gymnasts winning the show, the two left feet-er’s don’t have a chance and seem to just be added fluff; and while I loved Derek, he seemed to get the cream of the crop while dancers like Tony got the fluff.

    Geepies, I seem to be in rant mode this morning…more coffee, I need more coffee, and a nap, yes, more coffee and a nap and I will be as good as new!


  15. I thought that Shianne would go home. With better coaching she might be pretty good but it’s kind of sad to see her dressed up like Mariah Carey and trying to sing songs that are way over her head.

    My second choice would be beard guy. He has a great tone to his voice but his changes to the songs don’t work. I’m thinking a 60’s war, more specifically draft protest song, wasn’t his best choice.

    Jon was one of the better singers in the competition but not really in my lane. If he was going to do a Jackson 5 song it would have worked better for me if he had kept the tempo and left of the star walk routine. He also chose to change his whole look that was part of his persona for sing for your life night.

    Maybe they all learned a lesson about being better prepared to save themselves on Tuesday night. That’s you too Red.

    Yeah, the professional dancer contestants on DWTS are a turn off. They usually have some level of plausible deniability that they are pros like Baby was an actress who played a kid in a dance contest. This kid had singer, dancer, actor listed as his profession on his Wiki page. Maybe not his doing. Mark Ballis’ partner has developed a unique performance style from playing the violin / fiddle while “dancing” about the stage but it is all self taught and it might be like calling Mic Jagger a dancer to call her one. She was outstanding. Frankie (Malcolm) Muniz was the guy you were looking for. Zero previous experience, great pairing with Witney, great attitude, strong work ethic, strong start with improvement all along. They were fun to watch and turned in at least one of the most memorable performances of the season. He was a great contestant and they were a great couple. He came in third.



  16. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone 🦃🍁


  17. My only problem with Keisha is her authenticity as a country singer. Trying to turn “Midnight Train to Georgia” into a country song reinforced that concern.
