Blake Shelton guided Cassadee through the competition last fall and grabbed his second win in a row as a coach on the hit NBC singing competition. Cassadee was signed to Republic Nashville Records after she made the decision to pursue her singing career as a country artist. Her decision was based on the response she received during the show when she did a few country songs including the break-out moment when she sang Miranda Lambert’s hit song “Over You.” Cassadee also has said that she really feels that she can connect with the lyrics of country songs as country singers do. Tonight she will debut her first single “Wasting All These Tears” on the stage that helped launch her career. Cassadee will then be a presenter on the CMT Music Awards Wednesday night live from Nashville.
The top six from season four will perform duets during tonight’s live results show. They will also find out throughout the show which artists are safe. By the end of the show the one with the lowest total of votes from America will see their time on “The Voice” come to an end. How are the artists doing in the multiple voting methods? The only method that is open for public view is iTunes.
As far as iTunes goes it would appear that Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel and Team Blake’s Danielle Bradbery are leading the way in the voting. Michelle’s version of “I Knew You Were Trouble” was at #3 on the iTunes Pop chart as of 9 a.m. this morning and at #4 on the overall iTunes chart. Her second other song “Somewhere Only We Know” was at #19 on the pop chart and #18 on the overall chart.
Danielle’s version of “A Little Bit Stronger” was sitting at the #1 spot on the Country iTunes chart at 9 a.m. and at #12 on the Overall Itunes chart. Her second song ‘Shake The Sugar Tree” was sitting at #4 on the country chart and #20 on the overall cart. While looking for these songs on the iTunes charts, I also noticed that a few of Danielle’s songs from the past few weeks were still on the iTunes Country charts this week.
The other four artists in the top six on “The Voice” are also enjoying having their songs on the iTunes charts. All of these numbers are from 9 a.m. this morning. Team Blake’s The Swon Brothers were sitting at #9 on the country chart (#28 overall) with “Wagon Wheel” and #16 on the country chart (#47 overall) with their version of “Okie From Muskogee.” Team Blake’s third artist in the top six, Holly Tucker, had the #22 country chart song (#69 overall) with “My Wish” and her version of “When God-fearin’ Women Get The Blues” was at #38 on the country chart.
Team Adam’s final artist on “The Voice” is Amber Carrington and she was at #11 on the country chart (#31 overall) with “I Remember You” and her version of the iconic country hit “Crazy” sat at the #12 position on the country chart (#33 overall). Team Shakira’s final artist Sasha Allen had songs on two different iTunes charts. Her version of “Before He Cheats” was at #11 on the Pop chart (#25 overall) and Sasha’s version of “Ain’t No Way” was in the #2 spot on the iTunes R&B-Soul chart (#43 overall).
The iTunes sales are just one facet of the voting for “The Voice,” so these numbers are not necessarily the way the top six will fall into place in the voting. To find out which artist in the top six will be heading home and see Cassadee Pope debut her first single, watch “The Voice” live results show tonight on NBC starting at 7 p.m. central time.
