I thought Michelle had the best voice, by far, as well as being a talented songwriter and artist from what I could see and hear on youtube. Can’t wait to buy her album when it comes out in September!

I not going to dispute Sasha’s talent. There were about 10 of the final 16 that I would not been surprised by their winning of which Sasha was one. What I’m annoyed with is how all three coaches who critiqued Sasha’s “I will always Love You” referred to it as Whitney’s song. Whitney sang it, but it was written and recorded and performed in a movie by another well known artist long before Whitney. Look it up.

My personal favorite, Sarah Simmons, every thing she sang was epic.

It’s true. This is a popularity contest that mostly kids and young adults vote on and Sasha was the least popular. But she was by far the best singer. Didn’t you notice Sasha’s coming home party compared to the other contestants? She didn’t have one. Just her and her kid and Andre 3000. No mayor gave her a key to the city. No awards, no pep-rallies. Just a modest underground concert. But that is who Sasha is. Modest, humble, and the best singer I have seen on the voice in 4 seasons.

What BLEW it for Sasha was when she went home to see her child…that was GOOD , but that spouse/boyfriend/lover or wharever…was super SCARY and should have not been profiled.

PS>>>Give it up Cher…You’re done like dinner….pathetic voice, hair was horrid and her body and outfit..well you know what I mean…if you don’t yuk!

Really? You would not vote for Sasha because of your judging of her fiancée?

Get real. Of course that happens. When I saw the BF I thought the same thing – ugh, this is going to hurt her.

I would like to know what the voting demographic was (teens, tweens, older, middle age) I would like to know where I might find those breakdowns?

I dont think Allen is that good..just another singer – nothing special – you have to be special unless there is no one the contest that is that special. You have to really stand out to sell records!!!!

Why isn’t anyone saying anything about Amber? Clearly a better voice than Sasha… Not to deny Sasha’s vocals, but no comparison in range. Sasha with all her hoopla covered some of her singing lacks. If Michelle wins it’s because she is “different”. I just jumped on to team Danielle. Rah

I don’t think Danielle Bradbury is that special really. I don’t see why the judges are so twitterpated over her. I love Michelle.

I think Michelle Chamuel is gonna take it. She’s just so freakin’ likable and people can’t get enough of her. I love the Swon brothers though. But I think and want Michelle to win.

Don’t know who the real voters are. The real singers ….seasoned singers who were examples of what the “Voice” use to be, were all sent packing. I think the show was rigged from the begining. The voting was off to me. The swam bros were a silly novility act yet they bet out real singers????
I stopped watching long ago but did read the headlines this morning. WOW!

Like always America always go for their own race and not for the talent.

What is America’s “own race?” That doesn’t make sense. I’m guessing you mean Caucasian because the majority of Americans are Caucasian. However, if that is what you mean, you would still be incorrect. In the first two seasons of The Voice, the winners were both African American.

Well, when I saw that the Swon Brothers’ entire town came out in support of them, I predicted that they will be the winner. At this point it is all about the voting numbers. Let’s face it, they have the numbers, not to mention the fact that they were inducted into a some kind of hall of fame…really??? Greatly disappointed that Sasha didn’t advance to the finals and I won’t be watching any more this season.

Wow, hall of fame, I did not know that because I stopped watching the show.
All I can say is “Really”.

The “hall of fame” mentioned by PJ above isn’t part of The Voice. The Swon Brothers received the Rising Star award from the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. For what it’s worth, they both used to work there and Carrie Underwood, who initially was of American Idol fame, also received the same award in 2005.

I hope this helps,

The fact that Sasha OR Amber OR Judith didnt make it to the finals is just pure RICIDULOUSNESS at it’s best! Clearly those three had the BEST voice. I may not watch next season…I just can’t get with this way of deciding the winner. The person with the best VOICE should win. That SHOULD HAVE BEEN SASHA ALLEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Swan Brothers – what a joke!

Amber and Judith shot themselves in the foot, in my opinion. When Judith performed #thatpower, originally by will.i.am and Justin Bieber, I knew it was over. Same went for Amber when she performed Katy Perry’s Fireworks. I thought Sasha would move on though.

I was very, very surprised that Sasha Allen didn’t make it to the finale, but that The Swon Brothers did. I’ve been making predictions since the Live Rounds started and have been correct every single week, until this shocker.

I don’t know who I am pulling for more, Danielle or Michelle. Michelle’s music matches my tastes and preferences, but I admit her singing abilities aren’t as impressive as Danielle. However, Danielle’s performances are not even close to Michelle’s in terms of entertainment.

I would be happy with either of the two females winning.

(By the way, although I didn’t think The Swon Brothers would make it this far when I watched them in the Blind Auditions, I do commend them for doing so.)

It appears that it is NOT about the voice anymore, it’s about gimmicks and emotionless presentations and blandness and a popularity contest. Maybe the name of the show should be changed?

Really? Danielle has an amazing voice with perfect pitch in every single performance. Michelle and The Swon Brothers’ performances are anything but “emotionless.” If this were a popularity contest, I don’t think Michelle would still be here.

Michelle fan

Posted at 3:00 PM on June 12, 2013  

I wish she would have moved on too. I am still all in for Michelle, but having Sasha would have rounded out the genre’s. Sasha is a talented lady. Michelle is awesome in talent and what she stands for. The bottom line is no one “should have” moved on except the people who got the most votes…that’s how it works. I think the thing that turned me off of Sasha was stripping and borrowing Beyonce’s Super Bowl Outfit. She “shouldn’t have” done that then come back next week dressed like achurch choir girl….a bit confusing and seems just like sales tactics.
