At the start of Monday’s live final show sound, host Carson Daly reminded everyone that “this is the Cowboys’ last week ever.” Yes, on Tuesday’s highly anticipated and long-awaited finale, OG coach Blake Shelton will finally relinquish his hydraulic red throne after 12 years and 23 consecutive seasons. It is widely predicted/assumed that Blake will rise to the top and win a 10th time, not only because he has always been so popular, but because he is the only coach in the top five to be represented by two finalists, And Two of his team members are either country or country-adjacent. (Six of Team Blake’s past nine champions have been country singers.)

But after Monday’s final performance, I believe the rookie coach, whom Blake named her successor on the season 23 premiere, Niall Horan, may be upset with his solo finalist, pop chanteuse Gina Miles. Nothing really compares to her pimp-spot performance of Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” Monday, and the meta staging — a nod to Sinead’s iconic 1990 music video — is one of the most stunning productions was the one i ever saw soundRight up there with previous winners Chloe Kohansky’s “Bette Davis Eyes” and Cam Anthony’s “Stand Up.”

Gina’s stellar vocals would certainly have been enough to garner thousands of votes – as Niall noted, she has an instantly recognizable voice, like Ellie Goulding or former sound coach Adam Levine, where “you hear it and you know Absolutely Which it is.” But as Gina belted out the classic Prince-penned breakup ballad, a bank of television screens behind her flickered with pre-filmed extreme close-ups of her face alongside her own live performance. It There was a clever nod to Sinéad O’Connor’s John Maybury-directed video — one of the most famous music videos of all time — and the effect was nothing short of breathtaking.

“It was a special moment sound For me. I won’t soon forget that one,” marveled Niall.

On Monday, Blake said that this season’s coaches — Niall, Chance the Rapper, and Kelly Clarkson — “ruined” his farewell season, and while it was one of his typical jokes, he seriously believed it. Will be doing that Tuesday, if Gina wins. I also won’t rule out Team Chance’s win over harmonic sister act Sorrell, which Blake described as a “phenomenon”; Chance actually accused Blake of being “salty” because the trio’s Monday two performances were so great.

Let us assess the rest of the top five’s performances from Monday:

Grace West (Team Blake)

This Lady in Red goes old school with two classic country performances: Reba McEntire’s version of Vicki Lawrence’s story-song “The Night Lights Went Out in Georgia,” and Patsy Cline’s Weeper “She’s Got You.” When Grace was on stage, it made Universal Studios feel like the Grand Ole Opry for a few minutes, and I think it was a smart move that played to both Blake’s base and older viewers of the show in general. Was. Both the numbers were beautiful and sophisticated. “You’ve saved your best two performances for tonight. … We’ve definitely seen the best of you tonight,” said Niall. When Grace sang her second song, Blake also announced, ” I feel like the finale just happened!” The actual finale outcome of this season could be a real nail-biter.

D. Smooth (Team Kelly)

if grace made sound Feel like the Opry, then D.Smooth makes it feel like the 1990 BET Awards. “It was like this was your audience; It was like a whole different show,” Kelly said. Chance announces D’s first number — a totally live, sultry, and yes, spontaneous rendition of Johnny Gill’s “My, My, My,” decked out in a flashy hot pink tuxedo and a line-up of Motown-style backup singers. with – “Probably one of my favorite performances of the entire season. My only concern is Dee’s groovy second cover of the recently departed Bobby Caldwell’s 1978 Quiet Storm staple “What You Won’t Do for Love”, may be too sweet, as that was his last impression before the overnight vote. But whatever happens on Tuesday, this man Requirements making records. “I’m so glad I even got to witness you around,” Kelly told her. “You’re so creative. You’re a creator. You’re a writer. … It’s amazing to have this artist to inspire me.”

Sorel (Team Prospect)

Sorel has always been a triple-threat, so to speak, with his three-part harmonies. But Maddie, Ana, and Bella all got their time to shine during their respective, rare solo spotlights, with an almost PBS-style performance of Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons.” “It was such a great moment — to hear all of you in person,” Niall said, while Coach Chance praised the youngest, Bella, “for carrying the song.” However, it was when the siblings fully joined forces for the “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” anthem that it looked like they might actually reach the top of the season 23 mountain. “You always sound like a record when you’re up here. It’s incredible that one person can sing in tune and he in the pocket, but all three of you are doing it at the same time.” Event,” “Salty” denounced Blake, while Chance quipped, “I know we’re alive, so let me calm down before I curse on the TV… that was really good,

NOIVAS (Team Blake)

NOIVAS isn’t a country singer, but the “Big Ole Texas Guy” can certainly play one on TV. Blake claimed, “I guess people think of you as country anyway.” NOIVAS’ dramatic performance (let’s face it, is Any NOIVAS PERFORMANCE LIKE Not there Dramatic?) Chris Stapleton’s “Cold”, with its fiery rock ‘n’ roll spin and string sextet accompaniment, was a “smart choice” according to Kelly. NOIVAS might have given Grace some competition tonight. But it was during Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away” that NOIVAS really began to take flight. Sambhavna, the former coach of NOIVAS, called that live performance “insane” and added: “I knew You were about to arrive, like you always do! You deserve to win the show!

Gina Miles (Team Niall)

Gina’s above “Nothing Compares 2 U” was arguably The performance of the night (soon after the live East Coast broadcast, #GinaMiles and #TeamNiall began trending on Twitter), but her cover of Taylor Swift’s hit “Style” was also a highlight. It was her “big pop moment” and a big, risky departure from her previous dark and stormy performances, but she pulled it off. Of all five finalists, she definitely came across as the most trendy and marketable. “You’re a superstar. There’s nothing you can’t do. … I can’t wait to hear what kind of record you make next,” said her proud coach.

And now, it’s prediction time. It looks like Gina has overtaken Grace as the new frontrunner, and although it would be nice and nostalgic if Blake won her last-ever final, Niall is the only coach from the present. sound panel that will return in the fall of season 24, so it would be nice if he returned with a win to his credit – thus fulfilling Blake’s “heir” prophecy from the season 23 premiere. So, I’m predicting an upset win for Gina, followed by Grace second, Sorel third, Noivas fourth and D.Smooth fifth. But all five singers are eligible, and anything can happen.

But whatever Tuesday’s outcome, Blake will still be a winner, as he’ll be getting a hero’s farewell — with appearances from past coaches Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus, Cee Lo Green, Jennifer Hudson, Nick Jonas, and more. , John Legend, Usher, Pharrell Williams and even their original onscreen bromance buddy, Adam Levine (who left the show in 2019 much more abruptly and acrimoniously). see you then.
