Fans of The Voice love country music, and they love a country music tribute most of all.
When voting closed at 10 a.m., the top-ranked song among Monday’s Voice performance was “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes,” the Swon Brothers tribute to the late George Jones. It checked in at number 19.
Close on its heels at 22 was “Wasted,” 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery’s cover of the Carrie Underwood hit.
And the biggest surprise among the iTunes rankings came from Team Usher’s Josiah Hawley, who checked in at number 25 with “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved.”
None of the performances from Monday cracked the Top 10, so no singers qualified for bonus points. Carson Daly announced Monday that downloads would be multiplied by 10 for voting purposes for any singer accomplishing that feat.
Still, you have to figure the Swon Brothers, Danielle and Josiah as likely to survive tonight’s cut, when the bottom two vote-getters will be sent home, regardless of what team they represent.
Here’s where the other members of the Top 12 landed on iTunes.
#26: Sarah Simmons of Team Adam with “The Story”
#41: Judith Hill of Team Adam with “You’ve Got a Friend”
#51: Amber Carrington of Team Adam with “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”
