Review: The Voice of Việt Nam (Live Rounds – Thu Minh Edition)

With the second round of two teams of seven participating in the second Live Show from teams Hồ Ngọc Hà and Đàm Vĩnh Hưng, let’s look and see how the first two teams fared in the first set of Live Shows. In case you do not know how the teams are whittled from teams of seven to a team of five head to my post: Live Round – Whittling Seven Down to Five.

Taking a look at the online list of how the public vote was separated, Thu Minh’s team had a clear winner in the popular vote running away with more than half of the votes that were called in and everyone else just trailing behind.

The Public Vote winners of Thu Minh’s team were:
“Phạm Thị Hương Tràm” who sang “Anh” (You). According to statistics she apparently earned the lion’s share (57.23%) of the public vote from her team.

… in case you did not know, she sang a Whitney Houston classic during her blind audition.

As for her team mate Dương Trần Nghĩa he sang Bay which translates to Fly (mind you Bay is the Vietnamese word, not the English word). He got about 11.09% of the vote.

After top two of the vocalists were revealed via votes, the coach then gets to choose two other vocalists to move on, and they may not necessarily be the next two highest in public votes. In the case of Thu Minh’s team she chose: Nguyễn Trúc Nhân (9.57%) and Đỗ Xuân Sơn (4.75%) to have a free pass to the next Live Show. The final three vocalists then had to participate in a “sing off” where the final person would be chosen by the coach to move on to the next Live Show… turning the team of seven down to a team of five.

In the case of Thu Minh’s team she chose Nguyễn Khánh Phương Linh (7.82%) after her rendition of Adele’s Someone Like You.

So looking at the results of the public voting once again:

It would appear that in accordance to the public vote the vocalists are not necessarily the top five in the public opinion, more the top four and one more… Interesting.

Stay tuned as I breakdown how Trần Lập’s team of seven is whittled down to five.
