Throughout the live shows, 16-year-old Sawyer Fredericks has been the frontrunner to win “The Voice.” If that happens on Tuesday, it will also mean a first victory for his coach Pharrell Williams, who joined the NBC reality program last year. Whether you agree or disagree that Fredericks will prevail, 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 the results for this week’s finale.
The rise of Fredericks has been steady in terms of your predictions, but he hasn’t always been your overwhelming favorite to win. Look at the chart above with the blue line to see that he had a lowly status of only 38% picking him when the live shows started in early April. He then had a huge peak the following week up to 90%, and then a steep drop as the artists began to be better known. Since then, however, he has been moving up the charts to his current frontrunner status with 80% on his side.
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 results show. (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 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%.
And now it’s time to make your picks for one last chance at glory this season.
