    Perhaps dropping the entry age to 14 like the X factor will enthuse people more. There is a wealth of talent out there at this age, I have come across it several times.

    The quality of the artists on The Voice are far superior to the X-factor IMHO, but there's a wealth of talent out there full-stop. We don't need the age lowering, the 2 shows need to be different. I like the X-factor as it is and I like the Voice as it is.
    PS. We knew what songs they were singing earlier in the week if you'd watch Louder on Two.

    All the finalists are amazing, however I'm not sure about Jermaines song choice of Wrecking Ball...

    Christina Marie to win, she is so natural, beautiful & has the most amazing voice.

    Christina-Marie's first song was really good and had some melody unlike previously, but didn't rate her duet with Ricky. He was much, much stronger in terms of vocal projection and personality. Jermaine's soulful voice still resonated in the rocky 'Wrecking Ball' song, but the song choice by Will for the duet was strange. However, Jermaine's voice was far superior to Will's - was it meant to be ? I'm sorry but Jamie was completely overshadowed here; he sounded weak in comparison and didn't have the range of the others. Kylie was far, far superior to Jamie in their duet. But....BY FAR THE BEST IS....SALLY! Okay - she doesn't scream and hit high notes just to impress, but what she does is far, far superior. Sally puts real FEELING into anything she sings and...don't know why...but it just...hits you...right in the heart!! So...I'm voting for....SALLY.
