The best way to describe The Voice Top 13 performance show would be uneven.

There was a wild range in terms of the quality of performances, one of the widest I can remember in a Voice live show.

The good news is that enough cast members stepped up with big-time performances that the competition for the spots in the finals looks a wee bit more interesting than a week ago.

Eight singers advance this week, qualifying for the Season 22 semifinals.

Seven will be selected via overnight voting after Monday’s show.

Then the bottom three in terms of voting will compete for an instant save Tuesday night.

Here are this week’s rankings.

1. Morgan Myles (Team Camila): Loved last week’s song choice (Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy”). Loved Morgan’s version of it. And there’s no reason to think she won’t keep delivering standout performances. As Camila’s only remaining artist, she’ll also have her coach’s undivided attention.

2. Kim Cruse (Team Legend): Her rich vocals and stage presence are a winning combination, and Voice fans recognized it last week when she didn’t need a save. Can John and Kim come up with another winning song choice?

3. Bodie (Team Blake): He might not be the most talented singer on the show, but he’s got great range and a great knack for connecting with the songs he sings. That and being a member of Team Blake might be a winning combination.

4. Parijita Bastola (Team Legend): Parijita falls a spot this week, but that’s more because of what Bodie did than anything Parijita did wrong. She remains the best of The Voice’s younger singers.

5. Justin Aaron (Team Gwen): He just slayed a gospel song to end last week’s show and suddenly looks like Gwen’s most likely singer to make the finals. Keep the gospel music coming.

6. Omar Cardona (Team Legend): He’s a bit too theatrical for my taste, but he delivered a finals worthy vocal last week and always seemed in command on stage.

7. Kique (Team Gwen): He had to compete for a save last week. He’s at his best when he’s rearranging the covers he sings, something he didn’t do last week.

8. Bryce Leatherwood (Team Blake): The combination of being a country singer and being on Team Blake might be enough to carry Bryce into the semis, but I’m hoping he serves up a more moving performance this week.

9. Bryden Lape (Team Blake): He’s managed to flash tons of potential and demonstrate lots of inexperience the past two weeks. He’s one of the show’s more intriguing contestants.

10. Rowan Grace (Team Blake): I’d remind Voice fans that Rowan sounded superb when she covered Olivia Rodrigo’s “Traitor” in the blinds and was very good in the battles and knockouts as well.
