Tonight’s the moment of truth for the four finalists on “The Voice”. They’ll each turn in final performances that they hope garners the votes from America that’ll make them the champion.
Jeffery Austin’s powerful vocals are drawing lofty comparisons.
“He’s right in that vein of people like Sam Smith and Adele,” says Yahoo! Music managing editor Lyndsey Parker.
The parallel is different for Team Blake’s Emily Ann Roberts.
“She’s like the Carrie Underwood of The Voice,” Parker says. “She’s got a playful spunky side that came out during the ‘9 to 5’ performance that showed she can really entertain.”
That’s what fellow Team Blake finalist Barrett Baber’s been doing for years in Arkansas. Baber left full time teaching behind to give his music career one major push.
All of the finalists will have to go big in chasing Team Adam’s Jordan Smith.
“I’d actually say ‘Somebody to Love’ might be one of the best performances in the history of ‘The Voice'” Parker says. “He was just singing his face off. He really was. It was like some face melting vocals there.”
His iTunes-topping rendition last week cemented his status as the front-runner, but it’s the performances the finalists make tonight that will determine who wins.
“The Voice” airs tonight at 7 p.m. and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Tomorrow night’s show will also feature live performances from Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott and Coldplay, among others.
