All week long “The Voice” fans have been making their Gold Derby predictions for who they think will win Season 16 and who’ll be eliminated next, and things are not looking good for Celia Babini of Team John Legend. Following her fan-chosen performance of Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper‘s “Shallow” during Monday’s Top 13 episode, this 18-year-old from New York, New York has 11/20 odds of being one of this week’s five eliminated artists. Do you agree or disagree with our readers’ racetrack odds? There’s still time to make or update your picks before Tuesday’s results show.
“I miss you. You’re the best,” Adam Levine said to his former artist after her dramatic pit fall into the crowd. “But I’m happy that you’re with this guy [John] over here, because he’s pretty awesome too. I’m just happy you’re on this show, because you deserve to be here. I love watching every time you perform, I can’t wait to see what you’re gonna do. I’m a huge fan of yours. It just sucks that we didn’t get to keep working together. We’re gonna kinda keep working together through John. We’re gonna talk about you all the time.”
John told his quirky singer-songwriter, “Celia, when I first talked to you about doing this song you were like a little concerned because it’s a lot of pressure. This song just won an Oscar and Lady Gaga is one of the best singers in the world. What I talked to you about was making it your own and you really did that. From the visual performance to the vocal performance, you really did make it your own. I didn’t see her rehearse the little stage dive thing, so it was a surprise for me, too. She’s really diving into the deep end!”
Last week Team Legend was lucky enough to get two artists voted into the Top 13 by America’s vote: Maelyn Jarmon and Shawn Sounds. For his save John went with Celia after previously raving about her performance in the Top 24 round. John’s three eliminated artists last week were Jacob Maxwell, Jimmy Mowery and Lisa Ramey.
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “Because the song is a true duet it was a little weird when she opened with the Bradley part, but the gear-switch to the Gaga parts were an improvement. Still I think the song was too big for her voice which doesn’t really hold notes as well as she needed it to.”
