Get Your Recap of ‘The Voice’ and Watch the Top 6 Perform Here
If you missed any of the performances on the Monday (June 3rd) episode of Season 4 of ‘The Voice,’ we’ve got it here for you. The show has the field narrowed down to the Top 6, with three coaches on the verge of elimination. That is, everyone but Blake Shelton, who has three team members in the top half dozen. Here’s a recap.
Each contestant took the stage twice, performing one song chosen by their coach and one of their own choosing. Based on America’s vote, only one contestant will be eliminated this week, instead of the usual two.
Amber Carrington: Coach Adam Levine picked the Skid Row power ballad ‘I Remember You’ for Amber, and she put a country spin on it. Adam said he wanted Carrington’s performance to spotlight what he heard that made him the only coach to choose Amber in the first place. Her song choice was ‘Crazy’ by Patsy Cline. For one song being an 80’s rock tune and the other being a country classic, both performances were eerily similar.

Danielle Bradbery: Bradbery, coached by Blake Shelton, sang the Pam Tillis classic ‘Shake the Sugar Tree’ as the song chosen by her coach. She decided on Sara Evans’ ‘A Little Bit Stronger’. The first song was a very conservative performance, but Danielle seemed more relaxed and managed to let loose more for her Sara Evans cover.

The Swon Brothers: Blake picked ‘Wagon Wheel’ for the Brothers, and they were terrific at showing off the one advantage they have over anyone else in the competition: they can harmonize. Their second song was the Merle Haggard classic ‘Okie From Muskogee’, done with a Swon Brothers twist. Both songs warranted the Swon Brothers surviving the cut this week.

Holly Tucker: Tucker has been fantastic in the past couple of weeks, and may have emerged as a favorite in the competition. Blake Shelton got Holly’s final 6 performances started with Martina McBride‘s ‘When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues,’ and she delivered an excellent performance. Tucker’s choice was Rascal Flatts‘ ‘My Wish.’ As you can see, Holly hit two very different ends of country music style with these songs, and ought to feel confident that she will make the cut to the top 5.

Michelle Chamuel: Michelle sang an heartfelt rendition of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, as her coach Usher requested. In an attempt to show her mainstream appeal by singing Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. Despite the fact that Chamuel seemed to struggle to keep up with the song at first before settling in, she got a positive critique from Swift herself, who was a guest on the show. Swift gave props to Michelle for her emotional delivery of her song.

Sasha Allen: The lone remaining Shakira team member was given Carrie Underwood’s ‘Before He Cheats’, and it was really good. But she nailed Aretha Franklin’s ‘Ain’t No Way’, seemingly setting herself apart from the competition with what could be considered the best performance of the night.
