‘The Voice': Who Will Be the Season 5 Winner? – Readers Poll
With only eight contestants left in the competition, we are getting that much closer to crowning the next winner of 'The Voice.' We want to know: Who from Season 5 do you think is going to take home the ultimate prize?
Jacquie Lee, the youngest member on 'The Voice,' has had a pretty easy ride so far, with the audience enjoying her spunky, young personality. But is that enough to get her all the way to the end? Whatever her fate, coach Christina has promised to remain email buddies for life.
James Wolpert stands out among the pack, with his geeked-out attire and his rock 'n' roll attitude. James dropped out of college and worked at the Genius Bar in the Apple Store before pursuing his dreams of becoming a musician. Winning 'The Voice' would indeed be a nice ending to his story.
Ray Boudreaux, the 22 year-old father from Louisiana, has won over the hearts of many a screaming girl, with his Southern charm and handsome looks. Ray possesses some serious singing chops, and if you pair his talent with the adoration of his female fans, it is clear Ray is a definite threat. The rest of the 'Voice' contestants might want to keep an eye on this guy.
Will Champlin has been positioned as the underdog, after getting tossed around between multiple coaches. But this guy is no newbie to the game, coming from a strong musical background (his father is a member of the iconic band Chicago) and performing gigs all around Los Angeles. His adorable toddler, who frequently appears in taped pieces on the show, also doesn't hurt his chances.
Matthew Schuler is well on his way toward being "the guy to beat" after a string of stellar vocal performances and top hits on the iTunes charts. The apple of Christina Aguilera's eye, Matthew is on a roll and is definitely making the other competitors shake in their boots.
Tessanne Chin has garnered a lot of attention for her powerhouse vocals, with high praise from the coaches week after week. With all of Jamaica behind her (including her newest fan, fastest man in the world Usain Bolt), Tessanne has the determination and drive to push through all those standing in her way on the road to stardom.
Cole Vosbury has probably been the most consistent of the bunch, giving smooth, flawless performances week after week. Will his unique look and voice appeal to the masses? So far, it seems he's doing just fine.
Caroline Pennell was an early favorite, with her sweet, soft voice providing a welcome contrast to the louder vocalists in the competition. Caroline would definitely be a more unconventional choice to win 'The Voice,' and people might be looking for a change from the typical types of pop and country singers who dominate these competitions. But with her recent stint in the bottom three, it seems this quirky young lady is going to have to step up her game.
