The Voice Season 5: The Top 5 Give it a Go

James Wolpert performed With or Without You by U2-- O-M-G! I love this song. I love that James didn't sound like Bono singing that song because it made the performance stronger. His voice soared on the important parts. Adam said he was proud. Blake said that's one of his favorite songs too and Blake felt he needed a moment like that in the competition and said it's possible he dug himself out of the whole from being in the bottom 2 last week.

Will Champlin performed Carry On by F.U.N.-- Adam made an awesome song choice for Will. I loved Will's performance! It was so real and so authentic and he just went for it. You could tell that Will was really into the song choice. I loved the high note at the end. Adam said he is really proud of him and he could tell he felt good about it. Cee Lo said I'm pleased you felt so swaggy up there. I love anthems like that. Blake said letting your heart open up is gonna go a long way in this competition.

Jacquie Lee performed Angel by Sara McLachlan-- Christina made a little bit of a mistake choosing this I think. I found it a little slow and boring for Jacquie. Christina said she was blown away. She loved the dynamic she displayed and thought it was her best performance. Cee Lo enjoyed the sincerity of it all.

Cole Vosbury performed Shameless by Garth Brooks (written by Billy Joel)-- Loved this vocal, loved that the song was a mix between country and rock and roll and soul. It was perfect. Blake said he did an incredible job. Blake said that Cole suggested doing the song Shameless. Cee Lo said you perform every song like it's yours and that's what's special about you. You're a bonafied rock star.

Tessanne Chin performed Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel-- Wow, what a vocal, she may have just stamped her performance in the finals. Adam said I don't know what to say, that was crazy. Adam said knowing what's going on in your life, that's probably the most flawless and graceful performance I've ever heard on this show. Blake said, it's hard to argue with what Adam just said, you're an incredible singer.  

My predictions for the top three: Tessanne Chin, Cole Vosbury, and Will Champlin over James Wolpert by a sliver.
