Christiana Danielle part of most exciting night on “The Voice”


The presence of Christiana Danielle on “The Voice” has been filling fans from her hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana and elsewhere with enthusiasm for the show and the singer. Tuesday night’s performance proved that it is possible for “The Voice” to top the excitement it generated last season. Last season, Fort Wayne resident 16-year-old Addison Agen had a city on the edge of its seat at listening parties and in private homes. Now, it’s Christiana Danielle’s turn and she hasn’t disappointed.

“The Voice” and Christiana Danielle

The dynamics of “The Voice” will always create tension. Elements like having the “Bottom Two” sing to save their lives on the show, the potentially heroic ” Instant Save” in which viewers can vote for their favorite of the bottom two, all add up to drama.

Tuesday night found Fort Wayne singing sensation Christiana Danielle in the bottom two. She, along with Sharane Calister were allowed to sing for votes one last time. In the end, Christiana Danielle was victorious.

The entire show felt like a cliffhanger. Between performances and behind the scenes montages, singers were saved. But there were 11 singers, which meant there was one too many for the top 10.

This season, though, there are more singers who could be winners. Last season, the top two or three seemed obvious. This time, it could be one of several people. It is difficult to guess who the winner and runner-up will be.

Still, Christiana Danielle defies odds. That is one of the reasons her story on “The Voice” is so compelling. How far will she go? Audiences don’t know yet, but they keep tuning in to find out.

Stellar performances on “The Voice”

Performances that “wow” characterize this season of “The Voice,” too. This week, Team Alicia did a shocking performance of “Gimme Shelter.” The Rolling Stones tune was riveting. Especially for audiences who might have been familiar with the song already. There were performance aspects that fans listen for, and for the most part, Keys and her singers met or exceeded expectations. She joined them on keyboards, but then broke away to belt out the song with the competing singers.

The song choice was a shock, and the performance surprised, too. It proved again that this season of “The Voice” is a bit unpredictable.

As the show’s field of singers whittles to a single winner, audiences keep watching and voting. There is something about “The Voice” that draws people in, even if they are not necessarily fans of singing shows. Singers are held to high standards if they are to proceed to the next round, and maybe that increasing difficulty is what makes the show exciting to watch. Not knowing the outcome will keep audiences tuning in.
