‘The Voice’ is nearing the home stretch, with Trevin Hunte, Cassadee Pope, Nicholas David, and Terry McDermott battling tonight for two spots in next week’s finale! Given their demonstrated strengths, here’s what I think each of them needs to sing tonight to advance!

There are only two weeks left in this season of The Voice, so it’s time for the final four to pull out all the stops and really wow America if they hope to be one of the two who will advance to the finale, airing Monday, Dec. 17! Frontrunner Cassadee Pope and the competitors nipping at her heels, Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David, and Terry McDermott, all have their considerable strengths which they need to play to tonight. I’ve brainstormed the perfect song for each of them to sing if they hope to advance!

Cassadee Pope: “Don’t Speak” — No Doubt

At this point, Cassadee could stand up on stage and yodel and she’d probably advance to the finale — she’s that well-loved. But the pop-rocker shouldn’t rest on her laurels because there are three men just dying to knock her out of the competition. So, tonight it would be great to see her sing something that fits into her wheelhouse, but has a little depth. This No Doubt classic would do just the trick.

Trevin Hunte: “So Emotional” — Whitney Houston

Trevin’s been a complicated contestant this season. He seems only to be able to truly shine when he’s singing the crap out of a power ballad, so if he wants to make it to the top two, he better not try anything too adventurous. This classic Whitney Houston track is one that Trevin could totally belt out to the rafters.

Nicholas David: “Sir Duke” — Stevie Wonder

Nicholas’ unique voice is so perfectly suited for something a little funky, a little groovy — what’s funkier or groovy-er than an early Stevie Wonder song? It would be great to see what Nick could do with this song. I think an especially spirited performance of something like this would carry him right into the top two.

Terry McDermott: “You Shook Me All Night Long” — AC/DC

There isn’t anything that Terry should ever sing except for rock, so why not go big with one of the biggest rock bands of all time? This classic AC/DC track would match Terry’s sensibilities and abilities perfectly. Plus, it’s a really fun song — something that’s sometimes lacking from Terry’s song choices.

Do you agree with my song suggestions, HollywoodLifers? Who do you want in the top two? Let me know in the comments below!
