In a beautiful twist of irony Michelle Chamuel from Season 4 of ‘The Voice‘ returned to the show last night to sing her new song “Going Down Singing” and that’s exactly what happened to Cole Vosbury and his coach Blake Shelton. And then there were three….
Last night’s semifinal elimination of Season 5 of ‘The Voice’ has left many people with mixed emotions. Overall, it’d be hard to describe the show as a success. I found myself changing the channel during the show, which is something that I never do. Perhaps the worst part was the obvious outcome of the eliminations. If you read our article on ‘The Voice’ yesterday after the semifinal performances we said the following: Jacquie Lee and Tessanne Chin were locks and it would come down to Will Champlain and Cole Vosbury after an easy elimination of James Wolpert. Clearly, the masses love the girls so they’re happy they’ll be in the finals, BUT the show is pathetically predictable.
I hate to say it, but Will Champlain has zero chance to win this season. Being our favorite, we’re obviously disappointed, but do we have a right to be? Will is the most versatile of the three. Overall, he’s the best musician/vocalist without a question, but the show is called ‘The Voice’ and ultimately it’s all about the voice. Don’t get me wrong, Champlain is a terrific vocalist, but Tessanne and Jacquie Lee are out of this world. They’re also clearly right up the alley for the show’s audience.
So who wins? Well, it’s between Tessanne Chin and Jacquie Lee. Tessanne was #1 on the iTunes download chart last week, which leads me to think that she has the following to get it done. She’s also unique and has a spunky personality with helps her. I’ll take Tessanne for the win and be bitter that Will doesn’t have a chance to win. This could be my last season watching the show.
