Kennedy Holmes What About Us
The Voice season 15 Knockouts continue tonight with coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton and Carson Daly as host. We’re live blogging all the performances and results here.
Coaches have paired up the remaining 32 team members who will each perform songs of their own choosing. The coach chooses the winner, who advances to the Live Playoffs. The loser is eliminated OR can be stolen by a fellow coach. As far as the other coaches are concerned: Adam has used his Steal and his Save, Kelly and Blake have a Save remaining, and Jennifer still has a Steal. There are 12 more performances to go. Nine of those singers will advance to next week’s Playoffs.
What About Us by Pink – She’s only 13. She’s been singing, dancing, doing gymnastics and musical theater. Yes. She is an overachiever, and incredibly poised and mature for her age. Also, Kennedy is a four chair turn. Jennifer sees herself in Kennedy. Interesting, her Blind Audition was montaged. Jennifer thinks Kennedy is maybe TOO polished. Be vulnerable, she says.Kennedy’s tone is to DIE FOR. It’s thick and low, but she can still hit the high notes. But Jennifer has a point about vulnerability. Kennedy’s got the poise of a pageant princess. She needs to let that go.She’s got it in her, I’m sure. Definitely the clear winner here.
Kelly notes that Anthony sounds “identical” to Jim Croce, which isn’t really a compliment. “Pink is going to be so proud,” she says to Kennedy. Adam calls Anthony the coolest 15 year old he knows. “That’s what makes you so special.” Adam calls it impossible to choose. Blake notes that Kennedy is the flashier vocalist. He’d “take her all the way.” Jennifer pretends like it’s a REALLY HARD DECISION. Right. Jennifer Chooses Kennedy. Anthony is Eliminated. He was nothing but cannon fodder. Sad.
