The Voice 2013’s Top 6 contestants got two chances to impress America last night, which meant double the listening pleasure for us. The competition is getting stiff and at this point, everyone is winner in our eyes. But when it came to last night’s performances, we found a few that stood out above the rest.
Team Christina Aguilera’s Jacquie Lee was given a huge order with the song “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin, while her teammate Matthew Schuler attempted to show us a softer, soulful side by singing “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge. Team Blake Shelton’s lone soldier Cole Vosbury once again proved why he’s still in the competition with his take on the 1977 Hall & Oates hit “Rich Girl,” and his emotional dedication song choice of “Better Man,” by James Morrison.
Team Adam Levine, however, stood out from the rest last night with his three singers showing tons of diversity and range. Will Champlin showed passion with his rendition of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and James Wolpert showed serious creativity with his bluegrass version of “Fell In Love With a Girl.” But last night, we gave the best performances to Jamaican powerhouse Tessanne Chin.
Not only was the stunning singer able to take a simplistic song like Bob Marley’s socially conscious “Redemption Song” and make it new, but her vocals on Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” definitely broke the “Katy Perry curse” that most contestants struggle to break through.
