Marybeth Byrd The Voice Top 8
Season 17 of “The Voice” is almost over, and it’s time for the Top 8 performance show on Monday. The Top 8 artists perform in front of coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani on Monday, December 9, 2019, with the results following on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.
Three artists were automatically moved on to the finale. The two artists with the fewest votes were immediately eliminated and the middle three contended for the remaining spot in the next finale via the Instant Save.. This week’s theme is “80’s Week.” The artists will perform duets of songs from the 80’s.
Marybeth Byrd – Team John Legend – Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood – John wonders if Marybeth got in trouble last week because she strayed from country. YA THINK JOHN? YA THINK? Marybeth explains that she loves all kinds of music, but in her Arkansas hometown, country is huge. I agree with John, but Before He Cheats? Really? John wants America to see her “sassy” side. Hm. A Brandi Carlile cover or similar would have been a smart choice. There are even better Carrie Underwood songs. Sigh. This is OK, but it’s not going to get Marybeth across the finish line. She’s a really good singer, but John isn’t picking the right songs for her. Blake notes the song was hard to sing. “Personally” he likes the country stuff better. He should have been her coach. John calls it her best vocal performance so far. Stream
