Quick Thoughts: THE VOICE, "Top 6 Perform Live"

I'm afraid this write-up's going to have to be short and sweet. I apologize in advance.

6. Holly Tucker (Team Blake): "When God-Fearin' Women Get the Blues" by Martina McBride and "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts
This week wasn't Holly's best, but that had more to do with poor song choices more than anything. It'll be a shame if she goes home, but this was not the time to stumble and unfortunately she did.

5. The Swon Brothers (Team Blake): "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker and "Okie From Muskogee" by Merle Haggard
I keep counting out the Swons and every week they prove to me that I shouldn't. I didn't think their performances this week were bad, but I do think they're on borrowed time and wouldn't be shocked if they finally get sent home.

4. Sasha Allen (Team Shakira): "Ain't No Way" by Aretha Franklin and "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood
Sasha didn't do anything to catapult her to the top but did enough to keep her around until the next round, and honestly Shakira's pandering to get the country vote was a tad bit off-putting and didn't work for me. But can you really blame her at this point?

3. Danielle Bradbery (Team Blake): "Shake the Sugar Tree" by Pam Tillis and "A Little Bit Stronger" by Sara Evans
I get what Blake wants to do with Danielle, but I'm so over it at this point that I think he's hurting her chances of winning this competition. Don't get me wrong, I still think she's a front-runner and wouldn't be shocked if she does take it all, but Blake's vision for her is no longer a strength. That said, she did well when she picked her own song.

2. Michelle Chamuel (Team Usher): "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane and "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift
Give Michelle credit for straying away from the country trend (yes, she sang Taylor Swift but it's not like that's one of her country hits), and she gets major bonus points for busting out Keane and making me like a Taylor Swift song.

1. Amber Carrington (Team Adam): "I Remember You" by Skid Row and "Crazy" by Patsy Cline
Amber did everything I look for in a Voice contestant. She put her own spin on a song ("I Remember You") while keeping true to her roots and proving how good she is ("Crazy"). Now that Judith Hill's gone, Amber might be the one to beat.

My Power Rankings
6. The Swon Brothers (Team Blake) - LW: 8
5. Holly Tucker (Team Blake) - LW: 2
4. Sasha Allen (Team Shakira) - LW: 3
3. Danielle Bradbery (Team Blake) - LW: 5
2. Michelle Chamuel (Team Usher) - LW: 6
1. Amber Carrington (Team Adam) - LW: 4

Honestly, I'm not ready for Holly Tucker to go home because of some bad songs choices, but that's part of the game. Even though I felt that The Swon Brothers had a better night, I still don't think they're destined to make the Finals... but I've been wrong before.
