For the entirety of this 10th season on “The Voice,” contender Hannah Huston has been solidly consistent and never in danger of elimination. Does she have what it takes to defy the odds and stronger contestants to actually win the championship? Her coach Pharrell Williams, who is departing the show after this week, mentored the winning artist in Sawyer Fredericks last spring.
We’ve got Huston in fourth place in our power rankings to win the top prize on Tuesday. She is going up against Adam Wakefield for coach Blake Shelton, Laith Al-Saadi for coach Adam Levine, and Alisan Porter for coach Christina Aguilera. Take our poll at the bottom of this article and tell us which of these four artists you predict as champion. Click each of the artist names in this paragraph to see their profiles.
Pros: Huston represents everyone who is working a 9 to 5 job that secretly dreams of being a rock star. She’s a pre-school teacher who never performed for large crowds before auditioning for the NBC reality program. This is what this show is all about, right? Not to mention, she has delivered fantastic performances over the last two weeks and momentum might be on her side.
Cons: Although Huston has always lingered in the middle of the pack, she has never been a top seller on iTunes. There are also times when her inexperience shows – and competing in a finale with three seasoned musicians could be more than she can handle at this point.
Her song choices so far this season have been “Unaware” by Allen Stone (blind audition), “Elastic Heart'” by Sia (battle round), “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals (knockout round), “Ain’t No Way” by Aretha Franklin (live round one), “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” by Etta James (top 12), “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt (top 11), “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele (top 10), “Say You Love Me” by Jessie Ware (top 9), and “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge (top 8).
