Advertisements No one asked, but here is my opinion. Maybe it is just me, but the talent pool seemed pretty thin. I am not hearing what the judges hear. Generally I always think The Voice has a much better talent pool than Idol. Alisa Ermolaev (“Russian Stripper No. 2”) - I agreed with the judges here. She was just not good. At all. Saveria - She was the one Katy wanted but no one else did. And Katy knocked things over and stormed around. Potential was there, but yeah she wasn't ready. Hunter (The Comeback) - Just silliness. Camryn Lee Smith sang “Big White Room”. She seemed weak during the low parts but sounded good when she belted it out. Douglas Kiker sang “Bless the Broken Road”. Sigh. I hate the fakeness of this show. Making him go warm up in front of other people was just dumb. And his 'aw shucks' was just over the top. I thought he was terrible but they let him through. Francisco Martin sang “Alaska” and then “Tyra”. I thought both were bad. And he seemed over the top with his nervousness. They let him through but I wouldn't have. Nick Merrico sang “You Say”. What an unlike-able guy! Sheesh. He is so full of himself. I wouldn't have let him through based on his cockiness alone. Plus, he ghosted them last season. If I was judging, he gone! Arthur Gunn sang “Girl From the North Country” and then “Have You Ever Seen the Rain”. First song was awful. He did a much better job with his second. Louis Knight sang “Change”. Ehh. I am not a fan of the original songs. Sing something I know! lol.I wasn't gushing over him like they were. Sam was the final singer and she sang “Rise Up”. Backstory suckered them in here. She can sing, but was she any better than anyone in previous seasons?
