The competition is fierce on The Voice Season 3, and sadly, that means some of our favorites won't make it to the Top 2.

Last night, we all ugly-cried as Team Adam’s Amanda Brown was voted off. Throughout the competition, the rocker has impressed and surprised us with interesting song choices, impeccable delivery, and killer stage presence. We know that this isn't the last we'll see of her, and to celebrate her talent, here are our Top 5 reasons she should have won The Voice Season 3.

5) She’s a cross-genre gem

Though Amanda grew up singing gospel music, she refuses to be confined to that or any other single genre. The singer is inspired by bands like Radiohead and chose a multitude of tunes outside of her original wheelhouse.   

4) She’s with the right coach.

Amanda started out on Team Cee Lo, but he did not have complete faith in her — he paired her against Trevin Hunte in the battle rounds, assuming she was not strong enough to win. While the Lady Killer was partially correct — as she did lose that battle — he was wrong to not believe in her. Adam Levine stole her right away and supported her completely, and that definitely paid off! Amanda made it all the way to the Top 6 and was the only stolen contestant left in the competition on Dec. 4.

3) Her look stands out

Each week, Amanda’s outfits got sexier and more dazzling. We loved the backless, sparkling top she wore during her performance of “Dream On,” the breathtaking gown she wore during her Florence + the Machine performance is already on our holiday wish list, and the girl even knows how to rock red leather! She can do no wrong.

2) She can wail like no other

Did anyone else's jaw drop when Amanda hit that crazy wail during “Dream On”? Any woman — or person, for that matter — who can produce that sound is destined for greatness.

1) She has a sound we’ve never heard before

And speaking of sound, Amanda’s is like no other. Because she tackles all sorts of songs, she often brings us unexpected covers. Her rendition of “Dream On” was the first we’d ever heard by a woman, and all of her interpretations put entirely new spins on classic songs. Her creativity and marketability made her a clear front-runner this season, and we can't wait to see what she does next.

Do you think Amanda should have won? Weigh in below!
