Matt McAndrew — or Tattoo Neck, as my family calls him — is the clear front-runner on The Voice this season. At this point I’ll be flabbergasted if anybody else ends up on top.
Note: As I write this, I’m unaware of who was sent home this week (and will remain so until I return from a business trip on Friday). So I will not be reading any blog comments until after I’ve caught up. But if Shirey was eliminated on Tuesday, I’d be shocked.
He made it through the Battle Rounds by out-performing Brittany Butler on ‘On Broadway.’ No memory of that one, either.
For that reason, I’m not aiming to feature my favorite remaining contestants, or turn this theme week into a prediction of the final four. I will close out the week with performances by two of the strongest contenders, but today and tomorrow I’m featuring singers who have already packed their bags.
