Amber Carrington, Caroline Glaser star on iTunes

1 99

With Night 2 of the live rounds on The Voice set for tonight, I decided to see how the performances from last night are doing on iTunes.

Talk about surprises.

With the biggest delivered by Amber Carrington and Caroline Glaser.

Let’s run them down.

* I loved Amber’s show-opening performance of “Stay.” So, apparently, did lots of other folks. As of 6 p.m., her song was 18 among iTunes singles, the highest rank for any performance from last night.

* The second-highest song at that time was Michelle Chamuel’s “True Colors” at number 30, followed closely behind by Sarah Simmons at number 33 with “Angel.”

* Coming in fourth is the young singer-songwriter who admits she doesn’t have the big voice of her fellow Team Adam members. It mattered not to Voice fans. Caroline Glaser’s “The A Team” was number 36 on iTunes at 6 p.m. Perhaps more impressively, every one of her Voice performances is in the Top 200, and she’s the only performer from last night who can say that.

* Here’s another of the surprises. You won’t find Judith Hill on the iTunes singles chart until number 88. Apparently, fans weren’t exactly rushing to download her version of “Feeling Good.”

* The rest of Team Usher other than Michelle … well, all four of Caroline’s songs appear on the chart before you get to the second best on Team Usher — Josiah Hawley’s “Starlight” at number 189. At 6 p.m., Vedo was clinging to spot number 200 on the chart with “Against All Odds.” Cathia was nowhere to be found.

What’s that tell us?

Well, I’m pretty certain I would not want to be in Adam Levine’s shoes tomorrow night, regardless of how the voting goes.

To review, his singers finished in this order: 1. Amber Carrington; 2. Sarah Simmons; 3. Caroline Glaser (with an asterisk for three other songs in the top 200); 4. Judith Hill (and a pretty distant fourth).


If he wanted to do the show a favor, maybe Usher could save one of Adam’s team members instead of his own so none of those four very talented young women have to head home.

Best of the Night on Idol

There were more flamboyant performers on American Idol Top 9 night, but no one turned in a better vocal than Clark Beckham when he sang "Every Breath You Take." For song by song grades for all the performances, head here.
