Hey Monday is now on hiatus, but its lead singer, Cassadee Pope, is one of the final four contestants on the hit NBC talent show The Voice. At the beginning of live performances, when each of the four coaches had three singers, I figured the winner would come out of either Team Blake or Team Cee Lo. Aside from Melanie Martinez, Team Adam and Team Christina were way too cookie-cutter. Too many big-voiced pop-rock American Idol-style contestants that would split the big-voiced pop-rock American Idol vote. It was hardly a surprise when Team Christina went extinct last week, and it was less of a surprise when Team Adam followed last night.
No, this contest was always one between Team Blake and Team Cee Lo. And of them all, Pope has the best chance to walk away the winner.
Although there are a variety of ways to vote for your favorite on The Voice, the best way to help your new-found obsession is to download his/her songs on iTunes; if the artist breaks into the iTunes Top 10, each iTunes download counts as 10 votes. So far, since iTunes voting began with the final 10 contestants, only one artist's every performance has landed them in the iTunes Top 10, including both performances in this past Monday night's top 6 show. That artist is Cassadee Pope.
It looks like the hometown girl might make good.
