Note: I will embed the YouTube video of this Top 10 Holly Tucker performance as soon as it is available from The Voice’s official channel.
Song: “How Great Thou Art”
Holly sounded great in rehearsals. Then again, she sounded great last week and still lagged behind in iTunes sales. And to make it even worse, Tucker is singing first tonight. This isn’t going to help in getting votes. Talent wise, though, there is no way she should go home after this pretty performance. But singing what is basically a church song is probably not going to help get a lot of votes, either. That’s not the way it should be. But people don’t tend to like an infusion of religion into a contestant’s journey on these contests.

The Voice 4 has now reached its Top 10 week. It is the Live Playoffs round, and two contestants are being eliminated each week until further notice. Last year, they put 3 in the finals instead of 2. In other words, this isn’t a real competition because the producers can change the rules any time they want to and for any reason. But it’s still worth it to see some good singers and performances as long as you don’t take the contest aspect too seriously.
In last week’s Top 12, Garrett Gardner and Vedo were eliminated. Below, you can see a full list of the top 10 contestants left in The Voice 4.
Usher thought that Holly made a statement. It was not what he expected. But he did enjoy it. Shakira thought that it was heavenly, and she was like an angel. Adam said it’s nice to see the purity of her voice. Blake said the song is appropriate for tonight, where a huge tornado hit his native Oklahoma. He thought she turned it up a notch and delivered her most important performance.
The results show this week is on Tuesday, May 21, 2013.
Predictions For Holly Tucker Before The Show:
In a sea of country artists, Holly appears to have fallen behind. She was 9th out of the 12 contestants last week in iTunes rankings, peaking at only about #91. Out of the contestants remaining, only Kris Thomas was worse. At least before we see the Top 10 performances, it’s pretty easy to predict that Holly and Kris will be eliminated this week. They need something special to save themselves and survive to the Top 8.
