On Monday’s episode of “The Voice,” the Top 8 artists coached by Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton performed. The goal for each contestant was to stream the most songs on Apple Music/iTunes by Tuesday at 7 a.m ET/4 a.m. PT so that they reaped the benefit of a five-times vote multiplier.
We can report that Maelyn Jarmon from Team John Legend registered enough sales to have earned this bonus for the second week running for her performance of “Stay” by Rihanna. And her Top 13 ( “The Scientist”) and Top 24 (“Fallingwater”) songs are still in the top 100. Of Maelyn’s competition, six other artists made the top 100. (See the full list of songs and where they ranked below.)
Of these, only one cracked the Top 10 with Gyth Rigdon coming in at #9 for his rendition of the rousing “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood. This Team Blake Shelton artist is likely to be among the top three vote-getters who are sure to move on to the next round of the competition. But who will join him and Maelyn?
It looks like a battle between Dexter Roberts, who is also being coached by Blake, and John’s other artist Shawn Sounds. Shawn might have the edge to get the guaranteed third slot as his performance from last week (“A House is Not a Home” by Luther Vandross) is still selling.
Conversely, we are all but certain that Carter Lloyd Horne will number among the four artists eliminated on May 14 as his cover of “Take Me To Church” by Hozier did not even make the top 200. Also likely to face instant elimination when the vote count is revealed by Carson Daly is the only woman on Team Blake, Kim Cherry.
These results would leave Kelly Clarkson’s lone artist, Rod Stokes, and Blake’s other act, Andrew Sevener, in the Instant Save.
