Post CCCLXXXV Here’s the story of annoyed penguins, shopping, and a Roman chocolate fight. It’s like the last days of Rome out there! Commonly heard amongst the grizzled veterans of UK Christmas shopping sprees. Some folk think the British use this phrase way too much in circumstances way too inappropriate. I beg to differ. You’ll […]

Trans-lucent: A Journey Through Gender and Life

Time has been an evolving beast throughout my life. When I was homeschooled until age nine, the days seemed like years until they were done and then I looked back and saw them like seconds. Really, this feeling of time’s deceptive stretching and snapping once past has stayed with me all my life. Time is […]

This week has been a HELL of a week. I was trying to remain positive, but life was just throwing me curve balls and uppercuts. From the constant Georgia rain and the lack of sleep I was getting due to insomnia, I was over it. But God… Last night I got a full nights rest […]

This unseasonable warm-up today will be short-lived.  Highs today are expected in the upper 40s to low 50s with […]

The two-part Season 15 finale of NBC’s reality TV series “The Voice,” will take place on Monday, December 17 and Tuesday, December 18. One of the four artists vying for the title is the soulful country singer from Alabama, Kirk Jay. He will face off against Chevel Shepherd (Team Kelly Clarkson), Chris Kroeze (Team Blake Shelton) and Kennedy Holmes (Team Jennifer Hudson). Kirk became a member of Team Blake following his impressive blind audition of “Bless the Broken Road,” which earned him a four-chair turn from Blake, Jennifer, Kelly and Adam Levine. After pronouncing he’s “country til’ the day I die,” Kirk joined Team Blake with little discussion. Kirk’s sensitive, yet powerful vocals on love ballads have proven to be his strong suit. In the Battles he defeated Caeland Garner following their duet of “Let it Rain,” before earning a decisive victory in the Knockouts over Colton Smith when he sang “In Case You Didn’t Know.” In the Live Playoffs, Kirk earned a place in the Top 13 when the public voted him through following his performance of “One More Day.” The 22-year old has continued to build momentum with each live performance since. Kirk became an instant front-runner when his soul-stirring performance of “I’m Already There” became the first top 10 hit of the season on iTunes, peaking at #10. If he ever had one slight misstep this season, it came during his Top 11 performance of “Body Like a Back Road.” It became his worst-charting single of the season, peaking at #26. While that may not have been up to par by his standards, it was still the sixth-best selling single that week among “Voice” contestants. Kirk came storming back to the front of the pack when his Top 10 performance of “Tomorrow” once again struck a cord with viewers, landing at #4 on iTunes and earning him thunderous applause from the coaches and live audience members. To finish things off, Kirk sang “I Swear” for his Top 8 performance, once again becoming the top-selling iTunes artist at #4. With that, the public vote launched Kirk into next week’s finale. All things considered, Kirk should be considered the front-runner to win the Season 15 title. He has been one of the most consistent artists, vocally speaking, and is certainly the most successful on iTunes. The magic of Kirk is the unique tone of his voice, which is instantly recognizable, and the sincerity and emotion with which he sings is undeniable. His weakness is that he has yet to give a real crowd-pleasing up-tempo performance that resonates with viewers. The fact that Kirk has been seen as a front-runner all season could actually be another detriment. His performances are rarely surprising, even if they’re great. Could that lead to his fan base getting complacent? It’s possible, but Kirk should still be considered the likeliest threat to win Season 15, and give Blake an unprecedented seventh victory as a coach.
