Danielle Bradbery cracks top 10 on iTunes singles chart
The youngest contestant from The Voice had the highest ranked single from the show on iTunes Tuesday morning.
Danielle Bradbery, the 16-year-old country singer from Cypress, Texas, drew praise from The Voice coaches for her rendition of “Maybe It Was Memphis” Tuesday night.
And that was followed by more than a little praise from those who download music on iTunes.
As of 11:30 a.m. this morning, “Maybe It Was Memphis” was sitting at number five on the iTunes download chart. That’s for all singles, not just country songs.
The next highest ranked song from Tuesday’s episode was Sasha Allen’s show-closing rendition of “Oh Darling,” which checked in at number 30.
Danielle performs for Team Blake; Sasha for Team Shakira. They will find out tonight whether their iTunes success translates into a berth in the next round of the competition.
Two members from each team will advance based on downloads and fan voting. Another member will be saved by each team’s coach. That means one member from each team will be eliminated during a special 8 p.m. episode this evening.Here’s where the rest of the singers from last night landed on iTunes (again, as of 11:30 a.m.)
* The Swon Brothers (Team Blake) with “Fishin’ in the Dark” at number 55.
* Holly Tucker (Team Blake) with “How Do I Live” at number 69.
* Garrett Gardner (Team Shakira) with “Imagine” at number 75.
* Justin Rivers (Team Blake) with “Man in the Middle” at number 86.
* Kris Thomas (Team Shakira) with “When I Was Your Man” at number 92.
* Karina Iglesias (Team Shakira) with “Let’s Stay Together” at number 179.
Here’s a couple of really curious notes.
Two Voice singles from Monday night’s show — Amber Carrington’s “Stay” and Michelle Chamuel’s “True Colors” — are still ranked in the top 30, at 18 and 28, respectively.
And before you come to the Swon Brothers at number 55, you have to pass over two other performances from Monday night — Sarah Simmon’s “Angel” and Caroline Glaser’s “The A Team” — even though voting for Monday’s show ended long ago.
