At long last, NBC’s hit singing competition “The Voice” is just two nights away from crowning a winner for Season 9. With just four very talented contestants remaining in the 2015 season, fans officially have to draw their allegiance as to who they want to win the grand prize of $100,000 and a recording contract.
It was revealed during last week’s shocking semifinal elimination that the four artists competing for the big victory in Season 9 are Jordan Smith, Emily Ann Roberts, Barrett Baber and Jeffery Austin. Together they will compete once more on “The Voice” stage for America’s vote before host Carson Daly reads the name of the winner live Tuesday, Dec. 15. However, with an entire season's worth of blind auditions, knockout rounds, playoffs and more behind them -- many fans have likely already made up their mind as to which of the four singers they want to see beat the rest.
One factor that could help people decide is simply the breakdown of the coaches. After losing his last remaining artist in the semifinal elimination, Madi Davis, coach Pharrell Williams will only be present at the finale to give positive reinforcement to Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton as they each coach their artists through one more week.
Team Blake may have the best chance of winning, given that two of the four remaining artists, Baber and Roberts, belong to his team. However, they could have stark competition from Shelton’s biggest rival in the competition -- Adam Levine. The Maroon 5 singer struck gold by nabbing Jordan Smith early on in the competition. Since then, his popularity has skyrocketed thanks to his winning personality, accomplished singing career and incredible performances. Last week, People reports that he even topped Adele on the iTunes charts thanks to his semifinal performance of Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”
Meanwhile, if last week’s final Season 9 live save taught viewers anything, it’s that Team Gwen’s mild-mannered Jeffery Austin is a force to be reckoned with when his future in the competition is at stake. He gave one of his best performances of the competition just to stay afloat and make the final four, so there’s no telling how captivating he’ll be during Monday’s last night of songs.
