Monday's performances by this year's Top 5 contenders on "The Voice" prove it will be a real battle to be in the finals next week. Will India Carney be able to escape elimination for a third straight week? Or will it be Joshua Davis once again trying to stop the axe? Who will win this year and who will be eliminated this week? Whatever your choices, why are you not taking part in our "Voice" predictions contest. You could win a $100 Amazon gift certificate and a place of honor on our leaderboards by predicting each week's results.
In terms of their coaches, Christina Aguilera would continue her streak of never having the winning artist if Carney is done. Adam Levine has won twice before but has Davis close to the chopping block. Four-time winning coach Blake Shelton has his only remaining contender in Linsey. And Grammy-winning Producer of the Year Pharrell Williams still has both Hawthorne and Fredericks in an attempt to triumph for his first time as a coach.
Do you have what it takes to be the best among the most fervent fans of "The Voice"? You have until 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET this Tuesday to predict the results for the Top 5 week. It's fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting which artist will be eliminated this time.
Here is a summary of Monday's performances:
Joshua Davis sang "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt and "When I Paint My Masterpiece" by Bob Dylan.
India Carney sang "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles and "Earth Song" by Michael Jackson.
Sawyer Fredericks performed "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield and "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri.
Keep in mind that the race is tightening up with just five possible winners. So, you shouldn't only consider their performances on Monday but also their social media followings. Those numbers can tell you who may do well in the popular vote each week. (Read more about this key factor for making your predictions HERE.)
When making your predictions this week, remember that coming out on top in our contest doesn't just mean answering the week's questions correctly. You also have to use your big bets (500 points and 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points. As we use those point totals to break ties when more than one user tops our leaderboard with the same number of correct answers, don't take them for granted.
In last week's prediction contest, Erik10101 tied with Eeric and James for the only 100% perfect scores. Because Erik10101 had the better point score of 11,400, he was declared our champ. He won 10,000 points on a 500-point bet when Kimberly Nichole was a 20/1 long shot to be eliminated. He also won 700 points on a 200-point bet when Carney was 7/2 to be in the bottom. Because he was eligible as per our contest rules, he was awarded a $100 Amazon gift card.
Our overall leader for this eighth season of "The Voice" is still Denton Davidson. He missed both answers this past week, but has correctly picked 11 out of 14 answers this year. His current score is 79% accuracy, so he is still on pace to be our champ. Jason Nolette is in second place at 71%, and then Ngo Khang at 64%.
