Three more singers head home this week on The Voice.

The Top 13 will perform Monday night, and results will be determined at-large rather than by team.

On Tuesday, the top 9 vote-getters will automatically advance.

The singers falling in the bottom four will compete for the season’s second instant save.

Here’s how I’m ranking the singers heading into Top 13 night.

Song by song grades for the Top 16

1. Morgan Myles, 35, Nashville, Tenn. (Team Camila): She was the first singer we met on Season 22 and has been pitch perfect ever since. Her biggest challenge: Building momentum given the high bar she’s already set for herself.

2. Kim Cruse, 30, Woodville, Texas (Team Legend): Given her last two performances, it’s a crime that Kim needed a Team Legend save to advance last week. She’s unquestionably one of the show’s most powerful performers.

3. Parijita Bastola, 17, Severna Park, Md. (Team Legend): She looked like a star, sounded like a star and sold her song like a star last week. Given her age, that made her peformance the surprise of Top 16 week for me.

4. Bodie, 29, from Ladera Ranch, Calif. (Team Blake): You can feel the momentum building for this young man, and the fact that he’s singing for Team Blake won’t hurt a bit.

5. Devix, 28, York, Pa. (Team Camila): He’s a talented young alternative artists, the type who makes me sorry The Voice doesn’t allow singers to do originals on the show. You can tell this guy has a vision behind his music.

6. Kique, 18, Miami, Fla. (Team Gwen): His unique approach to everything he sings makes him the clear Team Gwen favorite to make the finals if anyone does.

7. Brayden Lape, 16, Grass Lake, Mich. (Team Blake): A great tone and heartthrob appeal give this guy sky-high potential. If he can overcome his lack of stage experience, watch out above.

8. Bryce Leatherwood, 22, Statesboro, Ga. (Team Blake): Being the show’s only male country singer and being on Team Blake will probably buy Bryce another week. If it wants to go farther, he needs performances with a tab more intensity.

9. Omar Cardona, 33, Orlando, Fla. (Team Legend); He’s a skilled showman, but should need a better vocal than the one he delivered last week to advance.

10. Rowan Grace, 16, Rapid City, S.D. (Team Blake): I’m guessing talented young Rowan will get a better song than “Hopelessly Devoted to You” this week. If not, well, Blake won’t be able to save her.

11. Justin Aaron, 34, Junction City, Kansas (Team Gwen): Please let this guy sing a gospel song he can take us to church with. If that happens, he has the vocal firepower to impress.

12. Eric Who, 22, Grovetown, Ga. (Team Camila): I think we can count on Eric being entertaining. Whether he’ll deliver a Top 10 worthy vocal Monday night is another matter.

13, Alyssa Witrado, 19, Fresno, Calif. (Team Gwen): Alyssa looked downright frightened during last week’s results show. Which tells me that Gwen needs to serve the young singer a big boost of confidence before she takes the stage again.
