'The Voice' season 15: Here are our top picks from each team after the Top 13 Live Playoffs
After a close look at all of Monday's performances from the Top 13 Live Playoffs, here are the top performers of the day from each team
'The Voice' season 15 had their second round of Live Playoffs. This week's theme was 'Dedication' and it featured some really emotional performances from the contestants. Apart from the amazing performances that we witnessed Monday night, it was revealed two more contestants will be sent home at the end of Tuesday night's episode.
After a close look at all of Monday's performances from the Top 13 Live Playoffs, here are the top performers of the day from each team, who, according to me, have the highest chances of advancing to the next round - the frontrunners for the Top 11.
Team Hudson - Kennedy Holmes
Performing 'Wind Beneath My Wings' for America’s votes, Kennedy Holmes, is undoubtedly the top performer from Jennifer Hudson's team. Being one of the youngest contestants in the competition has not stopped her from showing what a powerful voice she has. She dedicated her performance to her parents who mean everything to her and have supported her along this journey.
Holmes is definitely the front-runner, not just for Team Hudson but the entire competition, and has the highest chances of winning this season. Though she seems young, during her performance, she radiates much potential and vocal strength. After her performance, Hudson revealed how proud she was to have Holmes on her team and that her parents are definitely proud to have her as their daughter. There is star quality written all over her.
Team Clarkson - Chevel Shepherd
Being the only female country singer in the competition, Chevel Shepherd is surely the front-runner in Kelly Clarkson's team and Clarkson seems to know that as well. Shepherd performed 'Little White Church' by Little Big Town, dedicating it to her father. Her performance definitely was lively, bold, and full of spirit. She even rocked the country look with the fringe pants and belt buckle.
Her performance nothing less than magnificent and Clarkson seems to agree to that too. By the end of her performance, Shepherd had all the judges to their feet. She might be the key to Clarkson winning this season. The audience enjoyed her performance and went wild. This was by far Shepherd's best performance since the blind auditions.
Team Levine - DeAndre Nico
When it comes to Adam Levine's team, he does seem to have some strong contestants at hand. But, the one that stood out to among everyone was DeAndre Nico. Singing his rendition of 'I Can Only Imagine' by Mercy Me, Nico's performance was dedicated to his girlfriend who recently suffered a miscarriage during the Knockouts.
Though he seemed a bit disheveled at the beginning of his performance, by the end, Nico buckled up and showed some brilliant range. He showed that he can sing anything he wants if he puts his heart and soul into it. He is, for sure, the front-runner in Team Adam. Though last week Tyke James stood out, this week Nico beat him to it and it is safe to say that Nico will be saved from elimination.
The best performer from Blake Shelton's team was undoubtedly Kirk Jay. He brought out his best during this performance. Performing 'I'm Already There' Jay dedicated his performance to his mother who has never seen him perform live. She was in the audience during his performance for the first time ever. He is such a brilliant vocalist so much so that he will be known even after the competition for sure.
Jay has a sure shot of making it big in the country genre and the judges also agree to that. By the end of his performance, all the four judges were up on their feet for him. If he continues to give such stunning performances, there is nothing that can stop him from stealing the trophy this season.
