Audra McLaughlin sang Broken Wing by Martina McBride-- Audra started out slow, soft, and unsure. As her confidence picked up and the song went on, Audra's voice grew stronger and stronger. I actually loved this performance and I feel like this is going to be a hard choice for Blake. He said the same thing after hearing Audra sing.
Ryan Whyte Maloney sang Second Chance by Shinedown-- This was a strong performance. Ryan has a high vocal range for a guy, and he has tons of control considering this. He also picked a tough song so he gets extra points for that. Usher and Shakira both thought that Ryan nailed this performance. Blake seemed to like Ryan, but at the same time, he seemed nervous about whether or not he would advance him.
Madilyn Paige sang Clarity by Zedd feat. Foxes-- Madilyn's performance was the weakest out of the bunch. It's too bad cause she is talented, but she is also young and not as developed as some of the other contestants. Madilyn also picked a tough song, it was bigger than her, and there were lots of pitch issues in this performance. Adam was right on when he told Madilyn that she needed to let go more.
Jake Worthington sang Anywhere With You by Barefoot Blue Jean Night-- Jake may not have the best voice, but his performance skills have grown immensely. His voice isn't a slouch either, he has a solid vocal. I also feel like Blake really relates to Jake being that he is a country artist. Shakira called him a star, and Adam was excited to see how far he has come, these are both very true comments.
Sisaundra Lewis sang New York State of Mind by Billy Joel-- Sisaundra is someone who I look forward to seeing every week. I love how she performed this song, every note and run was total perfection, and I think she is a favorite to win this whole competition this year. She shut this down, she's the only person in my opinion who is a shoe in for this final three.
Totally forgot to write the results: Sisaundra, Audra, and Jake
Ryan and Madilyn's journey ends here....
I think ultimately Blake made the right choices.
