With so many reality TV shows and singing competition shows, it’s easier to dismiss the latest season of NBC’s The Voice. But this has been arguably their best season yet. The addition of Shakira and Usher have added vitality and excitement to the show. You can feel Shakira and Usher’s sincere love for their teammates and the comedic chemistry between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton has never been better.
They’re down to the Final 5 but there are three singers who not only could win the show, all three could sign with a label today and be topping the charts tomorrow. Here’s a spotlight of the Final 3.
“AIN’T NO WAY” SASHA ALLEN
Sasha Allen is in the mold of Whitney Houston. She’s has incredible power yet maintains a soft soulful attitude before the big crescendos. She’s a mom from NYC who was a backup singer for Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Usher, and Alicia Keys. After being stolen from Adam’s team, Shakira has fallen in love with Sasha’s amazing talent. Here’s a version of Sasha’s mom’s favorite song.
“CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND” MICHELLE CHAMUEL
The dark horse has become the favorite. When you first look at the sprite singer with the signature Elvis Costello glasses, you see a shy, demure woman. But once Michelle hits the stage, be prepared for a dynamo of intense vocal ability. She won our hearts with her quirky moves on I Kissed A Girl but her subtle and powerful performance of the overplayed True Colors showed the world she has a HUGE future in music. She was originally in a band called Ella Riot before joining the 4th season of The Voice.
“GRANDPA” DANIELLE BRADBURY
Only 16 years old, Danielle Bradbery said that her first live performance EVER was on The Voice. This adorably cute teenager has a current country pop voice and style that will easily translate into a major country music career. Imagine a softer Taylor Swift with a voice that rivals Leann Rimes, Danielle is Blake Shelton’s best shot at winning back-to-back titles. Here’s a homespun remake from The Judds.
