My fav is Cassadee....so I'm in the minority here.

I think Trevin has talent but I don't think he needs a lot of work. I'm not a professional, but I feel that he has been flat and off key in nearly every performance. Now, I'm not saying it was entire performances, but pretty much part of every performance. I do think he is a talented guy but he still has a ways to go.
Terry I enjoy but his sound isn't necessarily current. Nicholas I sometimes enjoy, but again not necessarily current. Cassadee is okay, but I don't find her engaging. Hmmmmmm......doesn't leave much with which to work. I will be surprised if Cass doesn't win it.
I see they borrowed a crowd favorite from AI with the hometown visits. I don't remember them doing this previously.
I didn't realize that Trevyn came from a middle class family. The way he talked when first interviewed during auditions I thought he was a Brooklyn project boy. That song is all upper range, apparently, which is why it appeals to divas like Midler and Christina who live there. Personally, my ears don't live there very often, and I kept waiting for him to soften it down which he finally did at the end. I also noticed that he went flat on the top notes and since there were so many of them, it hurt.
I bet Cassadee is chomping at the bit to be rid of Blake and go back to pop diva songs. He recognizes she can tell a story in song, but she doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with that.
The family reunion for Terry made me tear up because they were all tearing up. Almost a bit predictable that a rocker from Great Britain sang a song from a rocker band from Great Britain. I really liked what he did to change up the chorus with the upper runs. But, then, all he has to do is flash his dimples and I'm done.
I wonder if Nicholas was so overcome with emotion at singing for his family in the audience that he felt faint and that is why he sat down. I hope he doesn't have a heart problem. Physically, he looked his best last night and sang the heck out of that song.
I would prefer to see Terry and Nicholas and (inevitable) Cassadee in the finals.

I am a huge fan of Blake's and Miranda and have read several articles where Miranda has said in response to what Blake may have said - you said that? One of the reasons I like Blake so much is that Blake does stick up for all his contestants and Miranda said that past contestants Dia Frampton, Xenia and others spend lots of time at their house.
Miranda is the one who has really taken RaeLynn under her wing as they co-wrote a song together as well as performing together.
I was also surprised at where Trevin lived as I too thought he was a Brooklyn project boy. I think Trevin has a powerful voice, but he has been very inconsistent on the show. It could be shyness, but he is only 18 and may overcome it. I just don't think he is ready.
I not only love Terry and his voice, but adore those dimples as well. I agree I really hope Terry, Nicholas and Cassadee are in the finals.
For those who think that some of us dislike Cassadee I can only speak for myself, but I don't dislike her voice at all. I actually do not mind her voice especially when she does country. I am not a fan of today's Justin Bieber types of songs and apologize if any of you are fans of his, but any of the artists of today who sing one or two lines and repeat over and over just is not music to me.
I know Cassadee prefers the Pop world and again JMO, but I think that world is harder to crack and yet if she went the country route I bet she would do really well. I don't think many of us thought RaeLynn was very good, but apparently Miranda Lambert did. She became her protégé and has signed a record deal with Capitol Records.
Just watching the entire season I can honestly say that while I prefer Terry the most, I would have no problem with Nicholas or Cassadee winning as well. They are all talented and I guess it boils down to individual taste in music. I really believe that even the ones who are not winners of The Voice will go on because of their various music styles. They have had exposure with this program and I think that is the biggest factor to success. We have seen before on other programs where winning does not guarantee success and people who did not win actually ended up being more successful. JMO
