The Voice Season 17-Top 8 Semi-finals


Recommended Posts

The semi-finalists will perform twice tonight. They’ll each perform and they are paired up and will perform a classic 80s song.


Katie Kadan from Team John is our first artist of the night and she’s going to perform Lady Marmelade by LaBelle. Kelly says she is so fun to watch and she loves to watch her perform and she has a voice that captivates everyone. Gwen says that was her favorite Katie performance so far because she was just watching her and she’s such a character. John says everything Katie sings she makes it sound like it’s her song. John says she owns every performance.


Kat Hammock from Team Blake is next and she is going to sing Somewhere Only We Know by Keane. Kelly says everyone thinks of The Voice as a show for a big huge singer, but she has such a unique quiet voice and she’s so glad she’s on the show. Gwen says she hopes Kat learns how gifted she is and she’s so unique and she needs to make records because she can have a whole career after this. Blake says that was easily her most powerful vocal performance of the show so far. Her voice is pure and innocent and her voice can make you happy and break your heart at the same time. Blake says he’s going to see it through with her because she needs to be making records.


We’re going to kick-off our duets with Ricky Duran from Team Blake and Will Bremen from Team John and they are going to perform Your Love by The Outfield. Ricky is excited to sing with Will because of the energy he brings to the stage, and Will hopes he can keep up with Ricky because he kills on the guitar.     


Next up is Marybeth Byrd from Team John and she’s going to sing Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. Blake says that’s a tough vocal to tackle and she did a great job. Her journey on the show has been amazing to her, but he likes the country stuff personally. John says he almost didn’t recognize. He thought she got in the character so well and he also thought it was her best vocal performance and he thinks America lit a fire under her.


Hello Sunday from Team Kelly is ready to perform next and they are going to sing Don’t You Worry “Bout a Thing by Steve Wonder. John says they do so many inventive things together and it makes them both better. It was a fantastic performance. Kelly says they did so well and she’s so proud of them. Kelly says this was the perfect song at the perfect time and they just nailed it.


Our next duet is Marybeth Byrd from Team Blake and Jake Hoot from Team Kelly and they are going to sing Up Where We Belong by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. Jake says Marybeth’s voice has a soft fierceness about her, and Marybeth says Jake’s voice has an awesome growl.


The next artist is Ricky Duran from Team Blake and he is going to sing Let It Be by The Beatles. Blake says he told him to use everything he had left in the gas tank and Blake says he just gave the vocal performance of the season.


Will Bremen from Team John is our next artist and he’s going to perform Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars. John says he wore his suit in honor of Will’s hair for the extra motivation. John says Will impresses him every week and his stage presence is so electric and magnetic and it’s so much fun to work with him and watch him.


The next duet is Rose Short from Team Gwen and Katie Kadan from Team John and they are going to sing Express Yourself by Madonna. They are both 80s babies and they are excited to perform together.


Our final duet is Hello Sunday from Team Kelly and Kat Hammock from Team Blake and they are going so perform We Belong by Pat Benatar, and none of them have sung an 80s song yet.


Rose Short from Team Gwen is up next and she’s going to sing I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner. Gwen and Rose are crying and Kelly says Rose is a gift and she’s so blessed. That was so good. Gwen says that was so moving.


Our final artist of the night is Jake Hoot from Team Kelly and he’s going to perform Desperado by The Eagles. John says every week Jake is so consistently excellent and his voice feels like home and he hits the high notes like it’s nothing to him. He’s such an excellent singer and it was a joy to listen to that performance. Kelly says he is an incredibly gifted singer and she loves the story that matters and this song had a story and he delivered it.
