Now that “The Voice” enters its final month of this eighth season, who are you predicting to be the winner? Will it be the young 16-year-old contender who has led your rankings for weeks — Sawyer Fredericks for coach Pharrell Williams? If you believe it is him or someone else, 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.
Based on our official Gold Derby odds — which are calculated on predictions from people just like you — Fredericks is the overwhelming frontrunner with 8/11 odds and 57% of the current vote.
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 on Tuesday, May 5, to predict the results for the Top 6 week. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting which two artists will be eliminated next time.
Keep in mind that things are getting even tighter among just six 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, Taloson and Radzie tied with the only perfect scores. Because Taloson had the better point score of 4,500 to 4,450 for Radzie, he was declared our champ. He won 3,400 points on a 200-point bet that both Corey Kent White (14/1) and Hannah Kirby (3/1) would be eliminated. He won another 1,100 points when Carney was a 11/2 bet to be in the bottom three.
Taloson (real name Kevin Jacobsen) was eligible as per our contest rules, so he has been awarded a $100 Amazon gift card.
Just like many of our large number of Users, Jacobsen is also picking Fredericks to be the champ for this season. He says, “I am almost positive that Sawyer Fredericks will win this season of ‘The Voice.’ He has the underdog appeal of a young guy just singing classic songs in a raw, simple style and America is loving him. He is absolutely tearing up the iTunes charts, rocketing to the top 10 every single week, which gives him the bonus. No other contestant this year has done that every week. However, it’s possible that America could gradually fall out of love with him if he changes his performances too much, but I don’t see that happening.”
As for another possibility, he adds, “Personally speaking I would love for Kimberly Nichole to win. She has a flair for the dramatic with a guttural soul/rock edge that I love. I think on a pure level she’s one of the best contestants ‘The Voice’ has ever had. I would prefer Kimberly to win, but I think Sawyer’s fan base will help him win out in the end.”
Our overall leader for this eighth season of “The Voice” is still Denton Davidson (see above chart). He missed one answer this past week (choosing Hawthorne over White), but has correctly picked 11 out of 12 answers this year. His current score is 92% accuracy, so he is still on pace to be our champ.
