The Voice: 7 Runner Ups Who Should Have Won
5. Matt McAndrew
Do you remember that time in Season 7 when McAndrew performed an original song called “Wasted Love”? Yeah, it reached 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Even re-watching the scenes with Adam coaching Matt on the performance of the song, it doesn’t sound right if not sung by Matt himself! This was the performance that proved McAndrew deserved to win as it displayed his ability to wow the crowds on through his own capabilities as an artist.
4. Meghan Linsey
Many at home viewers were frustrated with Linsey’s appearance on the show due to the singer having past music industry experience through the band Steel Magnolia. Despite past success, the band had broken up and Linsey was starting at the bottom as a solo artist. The singer clearly established that they could hold on their own through a soul wrenching performance of “Tennessee Whiskey” in the semifinals.
