Ricky Duran Finale Performance
The Top 4 performed on Monday, December 12, 2019, with the results following on Tuesday, December 17, 2019. Four singers from Team Blake Shelton, Team Kelly Clarkson, Team John Legend and Team Gwen Stefani, which one will be winner on the Voice season 17?
Team Blake Shelton – A Woman Like Her by Ricky Duran (written by Charles Kelley, Eric Paslay & Laura Jeanne Veltz) – Ricky thinks the song is an authentic representation of who he wants to be. He compares the storytelling to something Dyland would do. Blake mentions the country writers on the song. He’s just hinting!
As a woman, I find these lyrics kind of condescending. Men looking for their manic pixie dream is not my thing. But the melody is beautiful. Ricky shines on songs that allow him to connect. In that regard, this song is a good pick for him. Ricky reminds Kelly of Bruce Springsteen. “Such a perfect song,” she says. John is jealous he wasn’t pitched the song. He thinks it will be the most streamed original song of the night. Wow. Blake believes it’s the best performance of his entire run. Naw, that was Let it Be last week. Blake begs America to vote for Ricky. Fun fact: Charles Kelley is a member of Lady Antebellum, performing tomorrow

Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry – Blake picked the song without asking Ricky. Oop. But he’s perfect for it! The studio version is pretty rockin, and they manage to transfer the fun on stage. Ricky plays the Chuck Berry solo! Stream
Ricky Duran – Team Blake Shelton – Runnin’ Down a Dream by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers – Blake says everybody wants to know about Ricky. The singer loved having a No. 2 song. Blake praises Ricky as a great guitar player and singer. Blake loves the song pick for the Ricky, because it’s his story right now. Ricky’s mom’s dying wish for him was to reach his musical dreams. Blake instructs: You have to get mad at the song! He has a point. Ricky needs a fire lit under him. This isn’t really a singer’s song. It’s a great song, but the melody doesn’t really go anywhere. It’s all about that driving guitar riff. The best part of the song, when he plays lead guitar! Great performance, but not so much a showcase for his vocals. Kelly calls it her favorite finale. She likes that everybody has their own niche. John thinks it’s cool to have classic rock on the show, he calls the performance “vital, vibrant.” Blake says, “You never let any of us down.” Blake says he was nervous about hitting the high notes, but he got the job done!

I’ve never wanted a Monday/Tuesday to hurry up and get here so much. He deserves this whole experience, Ricky, so take it all in. He has achieved an outstanding accomplishment with hard work, talent, and dedication (and lack of sleep ), and there’s plenty more rewards coming his way in the future.

Beverly Mae As someone who heard the Beatles sing that song for the first time…you brought me back to my youth (hippie) and how innocent and hopeful we were back then. I feel blessed to have experienced the music at that time. You had me sobbing. A great musician is one that can yank your heart right out of your body. You did that…
I can’t wait for you to come out with an album. I hope you make one that is as diverse as you. You are amazing! Thanks for reminding me of my roots.
Heather Masshardt Whitner So excited for you! Good luck!!!! You’ve got this! You have come so far and no matter what happens this week you ate a winner! You have such a great future ahead of you, love Ricky Duran finale performance tonight
