The final three contenders competing on “The Voice” have been determined: country singer Craig Wayne Boyd, pop vocalist Chris Jamison, and rocker/pop artist Matt McAndrew. Fans of the NBC reality program voted over the previous day and eliminated Damien Lawson and Taylor John Williams from the top five Tuesday night.
Boyd, Jamison, and McAndrew will now face off next Monday for the championship of this seventh season.
McAndrew was at the top of our most recent leaderboard with 14/5 odds (see chart at left). Boyd was next at 4/1, but Williams should have survived with 5/1 odds. Much longer shots were Lawson at 11/2 and especially Jamison at 13/2.
It looks likes one of the winning coaches for this season will be Adam Levine (winner of the first and fifth seasons) or Blake Shelton (champ for the second, third, and fourth seasons). Newcomers Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams seem to be out of it but could still have a last gasp effort.
That is due to a unique twist for this year. Lawson and Williams sang on Tuesday night along with seven other recently-departed contestants. One of those artists will be chosen over the next few hours to be a “wild card” contender that will compete next Monday with the other top three.
For their song selections Tuesday night:
Reagan James (Team Blake) sang “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae.
Sugar Joans (Team Pharrell) sang “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse.
Jessie Pitts (Team Blake) sang “Zombie” by The Cranberries.
DaNica Shirey (Team Pharrell) sang “Without You” by Badfinger.
Ryan Sill (Team Gwen) sang “Marry Me” by Train.
Luke Wade (Team Pharrell) sang “Have a Little Faith in Me” by John Hiatt.
Taylor John Williams (Team Gwen) sang “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak.
The name of the “wild card” winner will be announced by host Carson Daly on Wednesday’s “Today” show. Once we have that name, our new predictions center event will open for you to make your picks for the seventh season champion.
