The Voice Season 21 Episode 12 recap
The practice session with BrittanyBree and Samuel Harness kicked off the memorable night. Ed characterized them as his two gruff, well-toned vocalists with a lot of character in their vocals, as noted by John. BrittanyBree picked “Best Part” by HER and Daniel Caesar, noting that she wants to compose music that spans the gap between gospel and secular. John suggested her to take a gentler approach to this song. Samuel picked Lewis Capaldi’s “Bruises” because he resonates with the idea of being bruised by the abandonment connected with being placed for adoption by his biological parents. Ed saw the link to the song in Samuel’s performance and instructed him to focus on the chorus while keeping the verses more restrained.
John, Ariana, and Blake gave BrittanyBree and Samuel a standing ovation. Kelly told BrittanyBree that she was one of her favorite individuals to perform on stage, but she also told Samuel that he selected the appropriate song and performed it flawlessly. Blake admired BrittanyBree but said that Samuel “had a moment” and hence favored him as the winner. Ariana described Samuel’s voice as “cool and soulful,” but even though she was rooting for BrittanyBree, she handed Samuel the victory. John was clearly split between the two great performances, praising Samuel’s the finest of his career and telling BrittanyBree that she strikes a particular chord with him. Finally, he judged that Samuel was the winner because of the sincerity of his relationship to the song.
The Knockouts get tough.
Kelly’s favorite combination of the night was The Cunningham Sisters and Hailey Mia, who she stole from Ari. Hailey’s song of choice was “Arcade,” which she chose for its maturity to show her age and ability to handle huge tunes. Ed stated that he could feel her anxiety, but as she relaxed, she took charge of the song. And she needed to remain in that position. To return to the religious tunes, they grew up singing. The Cunningham Sisters chose “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail).” Kelly worked with them on their breathing and identifying places in the song where they could hold notes for a little longer.
Blake said after the knockout that The Cunningham Sisters had been one of his favorites throughout the competition, but he accepted that Hailey performed a truly knockout performance and deserved to win. Ari agreed with Blake, describing Hailey’s progress as “strong and gorgeous.” John liked The Cunningham Sisters’ harmonizing but found Hailey’s performance to be more captivating. Kelly said that hearing the song’s message from the young The Cunningham Sisters felt pure. But she was astonished by Hailey’s powerful voice even throughout rehearsals. Kelly, frustrated that she would have to send one of her young artists home, made the unequivocal choice to retain Hailey.
The final round
The third and final knockout of the night was between Team Ariana’s Ryleigh Plank and David Vogel. David selected Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me” to portray an intimate side of himself as an artist and his desire to reclaim a major female pop song. Ed thought it was fascinating that David used an acoustic guitar to make it anthemic. Ryleigh chose Miley Cyrus’s “Midnight Sky” to reflect her unabashed side and because Miley inspires her as an artist. Ari collaborated with Ryleigh to locate the proper notes in the song that complement her voice while also supporting the low notes from the front and back of the song. By the conclusion of David’s performance, John was yelling “beautiful” at him, but he also praised Ryleigh’s charm and uniqueness. He thought David’s decision to go acoustic was brilliant, and it lighted up the whole room.
Kelly informed David that bringing the guitar improved his vocal performance when it may have been a hindrance. But “spiritually,” he believes Ryleigh is the entire package that a record company would want to get their hands on. Blake said that although David left his mark all over the stage, he is attracted to Ryleigh’s “obvious thing” as an artist. Ari was faced with a difficult decision: David was exceptional and disarming tonight. Yet Ryleigh has vocal talents for every genre and the demeanor of a star. Ari’s winner was Ryleigh, who was saved because she was “one in a billion.” But John was ready to pull the trigger on snatching David. Arguing that he had added “something new” to his squad and that they now felt stronger.
