'The Voice' season 15: Here are the top contestants of each team
There seems to be a set of promising contestants this season, but sadly there can be just one winner at the end of the day
'The Voice' season 15 just wrapped up its knockout rounds and is now heading to the live shows, with each coach — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Clarkson — having six contestants, who are top-notch performers and prodigies, in their team.
There seems to be a set of promising contestants this season, but sadly there can be just one winner at the end of the day. With all that said and done, we still have to wait till next week to witness the live shows. So, here is a small list of who, according to me, are the top contestants in each team this season.
Kelly Clarkson - Kymberli Joye
If you have been watching Joye's performance from the blind auditions, you can easily notice how she has progressed for the better, starting off with the performance of her rendition of Whitney Houston's 'Run to You'. Her performance was just so flawless she wowed both Clarkson and Hudson. Choosing Clarkson as her coach might have been a good decision for her.
In the knockouts, she performed Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey’s 'The Middle'. Her bold voice complimented her amazing stage presence and blew everyone's mind, making her performance flawless. She had a Whitney Houston tone in her voice. When compared with the other five members of Clarkson's team Joye stands out mainly because of her vocal range and capability to take any range she wants to. Her bold voice is something quite hard to find among the other members of the team.
Jennifer Hudson - Kennedy Holmes
The first thing one might think is, "why is Sandy Redd missing from this list?" Well, if you had to look at her Battles and knockout performances, she hasn't been fairing that well. Especially with her song selection for the knockouts - Ariana Grande's song just wasn't her cup of tea. But Holmes, on the other hand, has been rocking her performances from day 1 in the blind auditions.
After being the first contestant to receive a four-chair turn she did every performance justice, especially her knockouts. She showed off her incredible range with her rendition of Pink's 'What About Us', leaving everyone astonished. Her stage presence also stood out. You could find the emotion she tried to portray with each song she sang. Not just Hudson, but every other judge also thought she had the highest chance of winning. Though she is the youngest contestant on the show, she is right now the front-runner, not just for Hudson's team but the entire competition.
Adam Levine - Tyke James
Apart from being a heart-throb with his looks, James is an even bigger heart-throb when it comes to his voice. His voice complimented the song really well with regards to his rendition of Johnny Cash’s 'Ring of Fire'. His low tone voice with gravel was something that brought the judges to the edge of their seats.
His performance brought out the best of his personality and emotions and was nothing short of flawless. Though Levine has four-chair receiver Deandre Nico on his team, according to me, James has a higher chance of winning the competition, if he continues to improve his raspy and soulful voice. Even during the knockouts when Levine decided to keep James, he said, "Tyke is just a force. He’s got it. Whatever it is, he’s got it."
Blake Shelton - Dave Fenley
If you watched Fenley's knockout performance, you would surely have become a fan of his voice if you weren't already. Fenley chose to perform Lionel Richie's 'Stuck on You' and his husky voice just added to the effect of the song. With each note hit perfectly, he didn't miss a beat.
Shelton does have good performers in his team, but none of them are front-runners like Fenley. And after his performance, Levine said he has a chance of winning, which gets him the top spot on Shelton's list. If Shelton continues to help Fenley improve his vocals, there's no doubt he has a great chance of grabbing the trophy this season.
