Mr. Nimbus | 12/12/2023

The episode spiced things up by making each of the hopefuls perform a solo track and a separate song as trios; the results will be aired on the Tuesday night episode.

Jacquie Roar, Mara Justine and Nini performed “Don’t Blame Me” from Swift’s 2017 album, Reputation. The trio kept its rendition of the track faithful to the original, providing simmering vocals and lush harmonies for the moments in between the verses, when they each took turns adding their unique flair to the performance.

Huntley, Lila Forde and Mac Royals replied with Folklore single “Exile.” Huntley and Mac swapped between the Bon Iver upper and lower register moments, while Forde’s vocals floated over Swift’s vocal parts. The trio performed the track from stools in front of a red window display to complement the moodiness of the song.

BIAS, Jordan Rainer and Ruby Leigh tried a Taylor’s Version track on for size, going for the re-recorded version of Speak Now‘s “Mean.” The team leaned further into the song’s country roots and dialed up the country twang with plucky acoustics, bright vocal riffs and harmonies, and at one point, stepped away from the mic stands for a passionate finish of the track.

Following Tuesday’s results show, The Voice season 24 finale will air next week on Dec. 18 and 19. Watch the top nine finalists covers of Taylor Swift songs below:
