Last week on The Voice, SoCal singer-songwriter Bodie turned the Proclaimers' upbeat novelty hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" into a plaintive indie ballad so dazzlingly that his coach, Blake Shelton, said he was a " Visionary". After raising the bar so high, it seemed like there was nowhere else for Bodie to go, no way for him to expand his vision. But when The Voice's season 22 top 10 went head-to-head this Monday, Bodie raised the bar even higher — so much so that Blake marveled, "That's maybe the greatest performance I've ever seen on this show."
Yes, Blake tends to exaggerate on The Voice — in fact, he once said to a contestant, "You literally beat me to death with your singing!" — but in the case of Bodie's Top 10 tour de force, Blake really meant it literally this time . A few years from now, when NBC airs a best-of-voice anniversary special featuring Amanda Brown's "Dream On," Hunter Plake's "Higher Love," and Victor Solomon's "Freedom," Bodie's "Golden Hour" will be at the top of that list.
Monday's top 10 topic was fan-picked songs, and if viewers had assigned TikTok star JVKE's lightning-fast, partially rapped "Golden Hour" to any contestant other than Bodie, it likely would have been sabotage. "This might be the hardest song I've ever tried on anyone on this show," Blake remarked. "What were you doing in the verses and then how you sang in the chorus? What? Who are you?"

But Bodie, a true original used to taking risks on this show, totally nailed it. This was one of the most adventurous, interesting, modern and relevant performances in Voice history, and it was Bodie's best yet - in a season already filled with Bodie highlights. I know the coaches make such claims every season, but if Bodie wins season 22, I could really imagine him having a massive pop career in the real world after the show.
"You walked in here and I was blown away by you - and I'm not even blown away anymore!" Camila Cabello gasped. “You definitely have your own lane, your own everything. I just thought it was beautiful. I'm always amazed by your voice because it's like an alternative voice, but it's so much more than an alternative voice," gushed Gwen Stefani. "Oh my god, you're amazing, dude. I don't know what else to say," Blake gushed.
Whether or not Bodie wins this season, he certainly has a shot at glory. But several other season 22 contestants could make it into the winners' circle in just two weeks, because as host Carson Daly pointed out, this is "the strongest group of 10 artists the show has had in a while." And that wasn't an exaggeration either. As seen below, this was a phenomenal top 10 episode full of talent. It's a shame that the season is almost over when it finally gets going.
Parijita Bastola (Team Legend), "Scars to Your Beautiful"
Parijita received a fan letter from Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas—"my American heartthrob and Indian heartthrob!"—and I imagine she's gained some fans, famous or otherwise, during her Voice run. While she admitted she was "a little skeptical" about doing this teenage Alessia Cara song, she proved once again that she can sing anything and make it seem effortless and straight from the heart. This performance felt like a finale, not the episode's opener. Blake called the performance "a masterclass in combining passion and joy with just gorgeous execution," Gwen called it "beautiful," and John Legend told Parijita, "I love this [song's] message to you. I think it really represents who you are and what you were on that show. I love that flutter in your voice; That vibrato feels so warm and inviting. It feels so mature compared to your 17 years of life. I just adore you every week.”
Rowan Grace (Team Blake), "I Love You"
Rowan is another teenage hopeful of Season 22, and apparently Voice fans wanted her to rejuvenate it too, because they assigned her a Billie Eilish song. (Rowan opted for an ABBA ballad last week.) Blake was in favor, explaining, "This performance makes most of the band disappear and we can hear their tone. ... When people hear [her] sing like that, it's almost hypnotic. ” That was a bit too Billie-esque, but other than that I thought this was Rowan's best voice of the season; it is better when it is calm and sluggish, as opposed to power belting. However, the coaches seemed strangely underwhelmed. "I love your tone of voice, but I think it was a bit challenging because it's so sparse and you can hear absolutely everything. There were times when I thought, "I'm a little unsure of where this is going." ", admitted Camila. John agreed, "it was a bit of a challenge", but thought Rowan "got it on point" for the most part, and Blake felt Rowan "met the challenge". I think Rowan has tried valiantly but I'm not sure she can go much further in such a hard fought season.
Justin Aaron (Team Gwen), "Just Once"
Unlike the Parijita and Rowan fans, Justin's fans (including John and Gwen's Boomer parents!) definitely wanted him to stay dated with this James Ingram classic. "I was so excited to see that the fans chose this song for you. I actually kind of forgot the song," Gwen said. (It always reminds me of the biggest teen sex comedy of the '80s, The Last American Virgin, but I digress.) I was expecting more sheer lung power from Justin after he totally tuned out in last week's pimp commercial, but this was a solid vocal with a nice big ending. Camila called him "such a masterful singer" and said her ear is "always so happy" to listen to him; Carson told him, "You can sing at full power - that was amazing"; and Gwen said, "It was beautiful the way you did it. I think all of America will vote for you.”
Brayden Lape (Team Blake), "Homesick"
Brayden is the youngest in the competition at 16 and season 22's iconic teenage heartthrob. But I'm afraid it's already peaked. This Kane Brown song didn't really allow him to do much or go anywhere, so this was an enjoyable but ultimately boring performance. However, Gwen commended Brayden for being "so calm," and Camila told him, "You just flew over it." Even Blake admitted, "You could almost come out of here and do nothing and people still love you." ." Blake seemed convinced that Brayden's "It" thing would be more than enough, even predicting that Brayden would "grow way too big for us to ever get back on this show." But while I agree that Brayden has star quality, I think he should just try a little harder.
Kim Cruse (Team Legend), "Love in the Brain"
Kim's sizzling Rihanna cover was a welcome and needed adrenaline rush after Brayden's tepid performance. She looked fierce, like a true star, in that bright white lightbox, and I loved hearing her contemporary again. (She auditioned fantastically with an H.E.R. song, and this week's performance matched that.) "Right from the start, Kim was one of the best singers on the show. She's shown different sides: she's done modern R&B, classic soul, country, and now she's coming back to a modern R&B song with classic roots. I love this journey for her," John said. "I feel like I know Rihanna well enough to say that she loved that performance," claimed Carson, who offered his own comment far more often than usual tonight. “I think your voice could kill things and bring them back to life at the same time; you can do everything. I don't even know what to say to you - congratulations on being born this way," Blake joked. "I feel like you're underrated this season... now everyone's going to wake up and be like, 'Why didn't we do a bigger thing with Kim?'" Gwen said. I agree that it can be all too easy to take Kim's talent for granted, but hopefully that will never happen again this season.
Bryce Leatherwood (Team Blake), "Sand in My Boots"
Problematic as he is, Morgan Wallen is technically The Voice's greatest success story. (Morgan came in in Season 6, and while Morgan's coaches that year were Usher and then Adam Levine, Blake noted, "We still claim Morgan Wallen in those parts.") So I could see why a Wallen song went well too one suited commercial country singers like Bryce. It wasn't much of a vocal performance, but it was the first time I really experienced Bryce being tender and wistful instead of being a hokey hat act, and I appreciated that stripped back storyteller vibe. I don't know if Bryce can become a superstar like Morgan Wallen, but this was by far my favorite performance of his. The coaches liked it too. Camila described Bryce's tone as "salted butter," John called it "so classic," and Blake said, "You've risen and people are buying Bryce Leatherwood in a big way now."
Kiqué (Team Gwen), "Call My Name"
Kiqué sang for his life with Weeknd's "Earned It" on the results show last week, and America saved him — so this week America assigned him another wistful, angsty Weeknd ballad. Unfortunately, he was unable to sing live Monday due to testing positive for COVID-19, but his pre-taped studio performance showed him at full strength. It was so dynamic and exciting! “You make every song your own. They give it personality and flair. You're so daring every time - you make these songs that are popular with big artists and it's so impressive," said John. “It was a flawless performance. I'm so sorry about the fact that you must be ill now, but I pray for you and vote for you, and so does America," Gwen said confidently. Kiqué definitely proved last week that he deserved to be saved and I think he'll be back next week to compete live again.
Morgan Myles (Team Camila), "Tennessee Whiskey"
Poor Camila started the live playoffs with such a strong team, but then she lost two artists, Devix and Eric Who, last week, leaving her with that one contestant, her "last woman standing." But Camila could still win it all, because a great singer is all that any voice coach needs. And Morgan Myles is a great, great singer. This song was a brilliant choice by her fans, the "Mylestones," which played to all of her blues/rock/country crossover strengths and allowed her to shred Bonnie Raitt-style guitar, too. "I've never seen you in your element like you did on this song," Camila told Morgan during rehearsals. Both John and Carson said it looked like an "award ceremony," and John assured Morgan, "It felt like you were doing exactly what you were supposed to be doing." Camila gushed, "My eyes hurt because You're absolutely glowing up there tonight. I have a feeling that today you just had absolute superstar status. ... We need this woman at awards ceremonies! We need her!” I think we need at least that woman on The Voice. Morgan is a force.
Omar José Cardona (Team Legend), "I want to know what love is"
Omar went modern with a Martin Garrix bop last week, which I found refreshing after all his 80's retro rock performances. So I was concerned when I found out his fans had assigned him this potentially choppy Foreigner power ballad. But by channeling all of the rawness and vulnerability of the past week and spending most of this performance at the piano before ending big with a gospel choir, Omar had a moment. "It was euphoric. Only you I believe can pull this song off, we've heard this song so many times; it can come across as karaoke so easily. But it's magical for you," Camila said. Gwen said: "You are so amazing emotionally - this was more emotional than last week. It was so passionate." And John proudly said, "I feel like you're going from being an incredible singer to someone who touches people's hearts and emotions. This week I felt it even more. It feels spiritual when you sing.”
So now it's time for predictions - and this one's a tough one. There are two singers going home on Tuesday and I think based on Monday's performances those two should be Brayden and Rowan. But they're both Team Blake contestants, and Blake is so popular (he's the only coach to have all four of his original playoff teammates in the top 10) that they might get through skating. As long as Team Blake's body is safe - and it will be - I'll obviously be happy. But honestly, after such an amazing night, I will be sad to see almost every one of these talented singers drop out of the competition. But tune in Tuesday to see what happens — and be ready to vote for the instant save if your favorite is in jeopardy.
