Video Beat - THREE OF THE BEST 'THE VOICE' VOICES REMAIN

Enough can't be said about Katie Kaden and Jake Hoot. Both are deserving of winning the title. Their voices and the songs they chose are memorable. The direction they would like to take is clear given they immediately know who they were as vocalists. They never searched or deviated from the type of talent they are. Many of the other contestants lack their experience and searched to find out who they are as a talent. That advantage complimented by their maturity makes them head and shoulders above the others

 

 

THE VOICE VOTERS ALMOST GOT IT SPOT ON

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

What can you say when the got it right and that's exactly what happened in this week's The Voice semifinals. There is no doubt (sorry Gwen) that Jake Hoot and Kate Kaden are but far the best voices in the contest, the point being that the voters recognized that and they were the first two to be announced to qualify for the finals.

Rose Short continues to be a contender as she had to fight to advance to the finals by having to participate in the bottom three sing-off. After waiting several minutes for the voters to conduct the instant save, she survived, which is a good song for her to consider performing... Gloria Gaynor could be watching

When we select who we feel are the best voices it is not biased but based on continually remembering a song that a contestant sang without recognizing who it was... and that's where Short came up LONG (pun intended).

Almost all of Kaden and Hoot's performances are rememberable but Short's performance got stronger as the competition progressed. At the beginning she sang alright but noting worth noting. She began her stretch run for the title when she sang a song of her choosing "I Turn to You" in the Live Performances.

This was Short's coming out as identifying the type of material she would like to do and she did it well, thus she is making a statement that she is in it to win it. From that point on she has been singing BAD ASS.

Short's performance even surprised her coach Gwen Stefani. Evidently it also exposed that a coach can get it wrong when they choose material that is not what is preferred by the contestant.

Hey.... I hate to do this but we have to go back to the infamous Simon Cowell as in his SIMON SAYS opinion that a song choice is of major importance or... GOLDEN as we prefer to identify it.

In our previous report we praised the improvement of Joanna Martinez and the duo Hello Sunday. The two 14-year-old singers survived but Martinez sang songs that were way over her head and vocal capacity and was knocked out. Her overreach was singing Christina Aguilera's "Impossible" which is too big and powerful a song for her voice. The lyrics are a bit too much for her limited life experience being only 15-years-old.

That song choice placed her in the bottom three when she sang "Somebody That I Used To Know" that again, was a poor choice and her performance was not moving. However the experience she received from participating in the competition will serve her well in her career.

Hello Sunday did well for two female vocalists that met only two years ago at a camp. At the time each thought she was a better singer than the other. Eventually they teamed up and the duo was created.

They can hold their head up high by having done so well in a contest that auditioned thousands of singers. They made it through to the Live Shows and gained a wealth of experience while meeting some very influential people along the way. Should they stay together they could be an interesting talent to watch for in their development.

Enough can't be said about Kaden and Hoot. Both are deserving of winning the title. Their QUALITY voices and the songs they chose are memorable. The direction they would like to take is clear given they immediately know who they are as vocalists. They never searched or deviated from the type of talent they are. That advantage complimented by their maturity makes them head and shoulders above the others. Many of the other contestants lack their experience and searched to find out who they are as a talent.

The strange thing is Short has been coming on so strong these past few weeks that should she continue getting stronger and continues to make good song choices she could be a surprising winner. To put it bluntly, Short has been kicking some major ass lately.

The bottom line is... should Hoot or Kaden fail to win the competition then their should be an investigation into the production of the show. There have been signs of tampering with some results this season being questionable therefore The Voice may have caught the "American Idol Titanic Sinking Ship Disease." Stay tuned...

Simon says... don't forget the lyrics.
