With all four finalists performing for the last time on Monday’s episode of “The Voice,” do you still believe Sawyer Fredericks is the overwhelming favorite to win? The champion will be crowned Tuesday evening on the results show for the NBC reality program. Whether you agree or disagree that Fredericks will prevail, why are you not taking part in our “Voice” predictions contest. This is your only remaining chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate and a place of honor on our leaderboards by predicting what will happen.
As more and more people like you have been voting over the weekend, Fredericks is still your top choice collectively, But his support has slipped a little bit. As of Saturday, he was a 1/4 favorite with 80% predicting him to prevail. He now has 74% of the top votes and is a 4/11 favorite. It certainly isn’t much of a change but might suggest a slight chink in the armor.
And what about the others in the Top 4 for the eighth season finale? According to our official Gold Derby odds, four-time winning coach Blake Shelton has former country star Meghan Linsey in second place with 9/2 odds. The other Team Pharrell artist Koryn Hawthorne is in the third spot at 16/1. Adam Levine, a coach who has prevailed twice, has Joshua Davis in last place at 50/1.That means pop star Christina Aguilera had yet another season without a winner after the ouster of India Carney last week.
Now that the race is almost at the finish line, 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 for Tuesday night’s finale. (Read more about this key factor for making your predictions HERE.)
For the final performance show of the season on Monday:
Meghan Linsey performed “Change My Mind” (self-penned), “Freeway of Love” (Aretha Franklin), and “When a Man Loves a Woman” (Percy Sledge).
Sawyer Fredericks sang “Summer Breeze” (Seals and Crofts), “Please” (Ray LaMontagne), and “Old Man” (Neil Young).
Joshua Davis performed “The Workingman’s Hymn” (self-penned), “Hallelujah” (Leonard Cohen), and “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” (Paul Simon).
When making your predictions this week, remember that coming out on top in our contest doesn’t just mean answering all of this 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.
For last week’s prediction contest, Sunhound tied with 24 other people with 100% perfect scores. Because he had the best score of 2,420, he was declared our champ of that large group. He won 420 points on a 200-point bet when Carney had 21/10 odds to be eliminated. He also earned 2,000 points on a 500-point bet that Hawthorne would be in the bottom at 4/1 odds. If he is eligible as per our contest rules, he will be awarded a $100 Amazon gift card.
Our overall leader for this eighth season of “The Voice” is still Denton Davidson. He missed one of the two answers last week, but has correctly picked 12 out of 16 answers this year. His current score is 75% accuracy, so he is still on pace to be our champ. Jason Nolette is in second place at 69 and then Sunhound at 63%.
