8:00 p.m. — “Previously on ‘The Voice’!” In the 10th episode, viewers watched the second round of knockouts play out, with Usher helping each of the four coaches prepare their artists for the big stage. So far the 10 knockout winners have been Tamara Jade (Team Legend), Payge Turner (Team Gwen), Worth the Wait (Team Blake), DeSz (Team Kelly), Jim Ranger (Team Blake), Bailey Rae (Team Legend), Ian Flanigan (Team Blake), Joseph Soul (Team Gwen), Madeline Consoer (Team Kelly) and Carter Rubin (Team Gwen). As for the steals, Gwen used hers on Ben Allen, Blake used his on Sid Kingsley, John used his on Chloé Hogan, and Kelly’s still remains in tact.
8:15 p.m. — The first knockout of the night is Tanner Gomes vs. Marisa Corvo on Team Kelly. Marisa is singing “If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher, a song penned by Marisa’s friend, Oscar-nominee Diane Warren. That’s quite a friend to have in your corner! Usher told Marisa to take this opportunity to show the world who she is by changing the melody a little bit. Tanner will be singing “Real Good Man” by Tim McGraw, hoping to show his fun side. Usher coaches him how to give off a bit of attitude and Kelly is looking for which artist doesn’t sound like an imitation of the original. Marisa is performing first and she’s wisely singing from behind the keyboard to show her musicianship. She is has nice clarity to her voice and she is able to switch between head voice and high belts effortlessly. That was a HUGE moment for Marisa! Tanner is up next and he has a solid country voice, but he doesn’t have the confidence to pull off the sexy image he’s going for. This sounds like a clear win for Marisa to me. Kelly disagrees and has decided Tanner is the winner of this knockout. Wow! For as shocked as I am by that result, I can understand Kelly’s intuition. Tanner probably has a better shot at winning. Unfortunately, Marisa has been eliminated.
8:35 p.m. — The next knockout is John Holiday vs. Cami Clune on Team Legend. Cami will be singing Annie Lennox‘s version of “I Put a Spell on You.” John wants to make the arrangement more haunting to modernize it. John will be singing “All By Myself” by Celine Dion. Usher can’t believe John can sing such high notes, but he thinks there should be more emotion. J. Legend tells J. Holiday to ask himself what Aretha Franklin would do with this Celine song? Cami is on stage first and I do love the way they arranged this song. It’s sexy and dark, but she sounds good too. Go ahead Cami! John is up next with this torch ballad and, I get it, the man can hit some ridiculous notes. But just because you can do something doesn’t always mean you should. Absolutely painful screeching that’s being applauded as vocals to aspire to. I refuse to co-sign, but the coaches give him a standing O. John decides John Holiday has won this knockout. Kelly decides to steal Cami so she’ll remain in the competition as well!
8:45 p.m. — It’s time for the four-way knockout. Performing for Team Kelly is Ryan Gallagher singing “Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli. For Team Gwen is Larriah Jackson, taking on Adele’s “One and Only.” Over on Team Legend, Julia Cooper is singing “Wish You Were Gay” by Billie Eilish. And for Team Blake, Taryn Papa will sing “Cry” by Faith Hill. Voting is currently open using “The Voice” app or on Google assist.
8:50 p.m. — Taryn is performing first and she actually sounds a lot like Hill. She has that classic 90’s country sound and I think audiences will respond to her. She overextended a bit towards the end, slightly struggling with the high notes, but overall Taryn gave a solid performance. Julia is up next and she’s banking more on artistry than vocals, similar to Eilish who has won a few Grammys perfecting that. She sounds fine, but this is a terrible song choice for a four-way knockout. It’s one of those songs that is cool on an album, but this is a singing competition. Julia blew it.
8:59 p.m. — Larriah is up next for Team Gwen and for being the youngest in this group, she’s incredibly poised. I don’t think she’s quite ready for the big time, but there’s a lot of potential here. Ryan is up last for Team Kelly and I have to say it’s a little refreshing to hear some opera on “The Voice” stage! He’s sort of got that sexy, smoldering look about him and I think audiences will respond. I think this four-way knockout comes down to Taryn and Ryan and I’m giving Ryan the advantage for being the only male in the lineup and singing a genre we don’t hear much of on this program. Who do you think will prevail in this four-way knockout?
