    Funny, I was just thinking about that the other night and I think the answer is Simon Cowell and the fact the AI contestants had recording contracts and a record company that pushed them. Cowell was a record company person long before he was a judge and you got to admit he has a knack for turning people in to recording stars. All the AI kids, Susan Boyle, New Direction and even that girl group from The US X Factor that are still around.

    I don't think THE VOICE has any record company affiliation that takes and markets their contestants into hit recording artists.

    As for this season, I always start to lose interest once they go live - and every year I am amazed at how many singers I think are amazing are let go and others that I think are mediocre make it to the live shows.

    I don't think any that are left really stand out.

    I think (thanks to corporate synergy) the show has an affiliation with Universal Music Group.

    No surprises for me at all last night. Thought those 3 would be in the bottom and thought Ryan would save himself.

    I would have been happy if all 3 of them had gone home.

    Blake only has one person left - but I think it is the person who could win the whole thing.

    Agreed. He's been a frontrunner for me for a while. But I think Danica put herself as a favorite as well. I could see it coming down to those 2.

    Danica may not even crack the top 5. Country Dude, Harry Potter, TSA Guy, Amish boy will all be top 5. She is fighting for 5th spot against Bald Pretty Boy and One Eye White Soul Dude imo. KD Lang boy is toast.

    Top 3 will be Matt, Craig and probably Damien with winner either Matt or Craig. Imo.

    I was thinking Damien might go tonight along with Luke & Ryan. Then Danica could be final 3 with Matt & Craig, but this is my first time watching so I may be out of touch with the votes.

    My personal rankings:

    Craig (not his best last night, but still my favorite)
    Matt
    Damian (Matt and Damian are tied for me)
    Chris
    Danica

    Bottom 3
    Taylor - blah
    Luke - double blah
    Ryan - triple blah

    I predict final 3 will be Craig, Matt and Damian...

    Adam has three very strong contestants but I think one of them goes tonight. It could very well be Damian. I had never been sold on Chris but I think he kind of knocked it out of the park last night.

    DaNica is still my vote for the best overall pure singer but I am not 100% Pharrell did her any favors with the Heart song. Maybe I was just overly critical because I am such a huge Heart Fan. He really did no favors for Luke either giving him the Simply Red song.

    Although I think DaNica has been consistently the best singer Matt is not far behind and is probably who I am rooting for most.

    Strange that Craig is a lot of people pick to win and he had to be saved twice to even get this far. I think Gwen should get big props for cleaning him up. I think it upped his appeal immensely.

    There will be a "bottom 4" tonight. So 4 will go through from "America's vote" and 4 will "sing for the save" with only one of that group joining the top 5.

    Spoilerizing this as it's iTunes results heavy in its analysis

    If you went with a pure top five from last night without the "instant save" you would likely get Matt, Damien, Chris, Taylor, and Craig as hands down top 5. But as it is, one of those 5 is going to be on the short end of the stick singing for his life. Matt is the only 100 percent lock safe. I would say Craig is too but he is being out charted (last night only) by the other four - but iTunes isn't 100 percent predictive and I think he will get a lot of votes from the other methods. So while it would be a shocker if Craig wound up in "bottom 4" it's not out of the realm.

    Matt, Taylor, and Damien all get top 10 iTunes bonus which is huge. Matt is top dog sitting at number 2 on iTunes top 100 (plus he even has two other songs from prior weeks still in to 100 - which doesn't count as votes for this week but is very predictive of popularity). Chris peaked at 12 last night, and Craig plateaued at 14. But Craig has outperformed Chris by far in prior weeks, and has the Blake/country vote in his pocket.

    Danica, Luke, and Ryan are not getting anywhere close to the numbers the other 5 guys are getting.

    Gun to my head I will say that Chris ends up being the one singing for his life, and he will easily get the instant save over Danica, Luke, and Ryan unless he really tanks his performance and Danica hits a home run

    Danica has a wonderful voice but even so she has very little chance of post-show success. Not enough star power, not enough sexy. She would need the ability to write great original material of her own to perform, or have someone do it for her

    Just finished watching the show from Mon night. Agreed that Matt killed it. And I thought Damien and Taylor did very well. Didn't like Danica or Craig this week. Craig should make it through based on past performances though. Think Ryan is just barely there and should be gone. Chris is kind of hit or miss for me, as is Luke. I liked Chris this week, but not so much for Luke.

    If 4 move on, I predict Matt, Damien, Taylor and Chris. For the save, it could depend on the song sung.

    Wait. I forgot about Craig. He likely slides in there instead of Chris (although I liked Chris better this week).

    OK, I was close...surprised Taylor is still in this, but whatever.

    I am still standing by my final 3 moving forward...

    Looks like I was spot on. Nyny, I agree with your top 3.

    The punch, gb. I beat you to it.

    Since I am retired from the woofs I guess I'll have to dominate you in reality TV predictions now....:p:D:p

    So Adam has all three still alive - 3 of the top five. Unheard of.

    It's still going to come down to Matt and Craig ftw.

    Taylor might bump Damien from the top three - it will be close.

    That would be a real shame, IMHO.

    Damien is special - Taylor, not so much.
