As I did with the Thu Minh Edition… I will look into what happened with Trần Lập’s team and how they got whittled down from seven to five. If you do not remember how the breakdown happened go to the post of the Live Round Edition – Whittling Seven Down to Five.
Looking at Thu Minh’s team there is a massive run away winner in the public vote. In the case of Trần Lập’s team there were three member that got the lion’s share of the public vote with everyone one else trailing a bit behind them. The top two of the three got an automatic in via the public vote:
Nguyễn Thùy Linh (31.7%) who sang “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”
Trần Thi Kim Loan (31.63%) who sang “Và ta đã thấy mặt trời” (Finally I Saw the Sun)
Unfortunately the one who placed third (22.07%) in the public vote didn’t get the automatic pass by the coach’s choice. That honor went to Nguyễn Kiên Giang (6.55% – 4th) and Nguyễn Văn Thắng (3.97% – 5th).
However, Nguyễn Hoài Bảo Anh redeemed herself in the Last Chance Performance singing “Giấc mưa ngày xưa” (A Dream In the Past) and eventually convincing Trần Lập to choose her for his team of five.
Her original Live Round song was “Everytime” where she did reasonably well but was just a little flat throughout the majority of the song, consistent but flat.
