Bria has the most unique supercool rock voice,
It was a terrible song choice for her, Wy do they always force people to sing another genre of music.
I really hate it when they do that, Imagine acdc singing soul music,
for example: mary j. blige sings a rock song for the first time (u2 and mary j. blige one), wow that girl is born to sing rock music.
Of course i was hoping for more, and yes the movie Rock of Ages came out with mary j. blige in cast, What a powerful rock voice.

Wy do people always vote the same way as the jury?
Isn’t it a bit strange that every jury member still has one singer left, isn’t obvious when a coach is really fighting to keep a team member or when he is ready to let go.

I think Adam undermined Bris as she was competition for Christina whom is good but come on you affected Bria’s confidence with the comments regarding the Avril song! I was disappointed last season at some choices now I debate if I will even watch next season ! Also stop allowing these pros like Sesandra Lewis who was a paid singer with Celine Dion

You need to improve the band and sound system
Doesn’t compare to American idol.
I think the contestants are the same quality
I love the voice is a better show but needs improvement

Bria Kelly being voted off can be contributed to one thing… Adam Levin being negative nancy on her performance Monday night. I think it was a strategic move by Adam to remove a true threat to win the competition. On the other hand… Who are these idiot voters? Bria Kelly has a once in a lifetime sound. I’m glad Usher told her not to worry what others (like Adam) think about her. She rocks and I hope she does nothing but be herself and if so she will be successful. Rock on Bria! The Voice will miss your unique talent.

Watching the tears from Bria told the story of her demise, however, her rendition of “Steamroller Blues” will rock on forever. Best of luck Bria, you are a shining star.

Voters, are you serious….Belvin Perry was almost one of the last to be saved. You are voting on the voice and performance as an entertainer, not looks. This guy rocks anything and has wonderful range and tone. He’s just as good, or better, than Sabrina/Sierra (whatever her name is)!
Anyone else shocked too that his name was not called in first two or four??

Sissaundra’s voice is unbelievable. With the right song, she would blow the roof off every week. Tessanne Chin could sing in her softest voice and everyone would be on the end of their seats hanging on every world. Let alone those powerful songs.

Did I hear right; they are ADDING two more chairs/judges next season? OR will two we have now be leaving? If so, I hope it’s Blake that leaves.

No, Gwen and Pharrell will be taking over Usher and Shakira’s spot. They rotate. It used to be Christina and CeeLo. Adam and Blake never leave.

Josh fan here as well, although I think Jake should have gone home. What I really think is that country singers need a singing show of their own. There seems to be a huge quantity of country fans that vote which always keeps country singers at the top, edging out much better pop and r&b singers.

Bria should not be gone. And I agree, this love affair with country music tends to ignore other talent that doesn’t sing country music.

Blakes’s wife got her big break on a country show like that. I think it’s ok for them to be on the show just as long as they sing different styles of songs. I would hate an American Idol with out Carrie Underwood you know what I mean?

Bria definitely shouldn’t have gone home as she is one of the most powerful singers to ever enter one of these competitions. The biggest problem is that some coaches like Usher have no idea how to coach. They force songs on people that are not right for them and that is what happened to Bria. Adam allowed Grimmie to select a song she loves and she absolutely killed it. This is a big reason why Adam or Blake win each year. Also, I think fans have decided they like Adam and Blake best and automatically vote for their singers because fans are as committed to the coach that wins as to the singer that wins.

Usher is a really bad judge, that’s for sure. Steamroller Blues was a great performance from Bria but I’m with you and Rolling in Deep where not great. I’m really rooting for Josh.

Are you kidding? 3 of the 4 best singing for the save? American Idol and The Voice have the same problem. Girls voting for boys and talented girls getting the shaft! The two voted out tonight were the two with the best chance to actually make it as solo artists in pop music.

Uh…between Jake, Josh and Delvin who exactly is the heartthrob there???? None of their music styles are directed at teens. None of them are hot (though none of them are ugly either) – T.J was the most good looking and he was the first guy gone. Also Jake and Josh have both emphasized they are not available. Also in seasons 3 and 4 the very good looking guys (Dez Duron and Josiah Hawley) were gone before the top 6. I’ve actually found The Voice to be the more fair show for girls because it doesn’t seem to favour the heartthrobs. The two winners that have had some post-show success are girls.

So sad to see Bria Kelly go. I have to say that I think she was a much better singer BEFORE she was coached. Her blind audition rocked the world. I hope we see more from her after The Voice.

My reaction exactly! Blind auditions of not, it takes more than a voice to make it as a solo artist. This voter demographic keeps eliminating girls with the most potential for success, just like on Am Idol!
