“The Voice”‘s Cole Vosbury, Jacquie Lee Lead Race for iTunes Bonus

By  | 

Update 2: As expected, no “The Voice” contestant secured an iTunes bonus this week.

Tessanne Chin’s “Redemption Song,” the week’s hottest seller, had only ascended to number fifteen by the close of voting at 11AM ET. Cole Vosbury’s “Rich Girl” and Jacquie Lee’s “Cry Baby,” the early leaders, wrapped at numbers sixteen and twenty, respectively.

The final weekly positions were as follows:

15. Tessanne Chin – Redemption Song (The Voice Performance)
16. Cole Vosbury – Rich Girl (The Voice Performance)
20. Jacquie Lee – Cry Baby (The Voice Performance)
23. Cole Vosbury – Better Man (The Voice Performance)
25. Will Champlin – A Change Is Gonna Come (The Voice Performance)
27. Will Champlin – Hey Brother (The Voice Performance)
33. Tessanne Chin – Unconditionally (The Voice Performance)
34. James Wolpert – I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) [The Voice Performance]
39. Matthew Schuler – When a Man Loves a Woman (The Voice Performance)
45. Matthew Schuler – Story of My Life (The Voice Performance)
46. Jacquie Lee – The Voice Within (The Voice Performance)
48. James Wolpert – Fell In Love With a Girl (The Voice Performance)

Update: For the first time this season, powerhouse singer Tessanne Chin has taken the lead in the weekly iTunes race.

Unfortunately, not even she appears poised to claim a multiplier bonus. With just 90 minutes left in the voting period, her “Redemption Song” has only reached number nineteen. Though not impossible, an ascent into the top ten seems very unlikely.

Cole Vosbury’s “Rich Girl” follows at 20, while Jacquie Lee’s “Cry Baby” is still at number 23.

Vosbury’s “Better Man” claims number twenty six, while Will Champlin’s “A Change is Gonna Come” and “Hey Brother” are 28 and 32, respectively.

James Wolpert’s “I’d Do Anything for Love” and Tessanne Chin’s “Unconditionally” hold 39 and 40, while Matthew Schuler has 43 and 45 for his respective “When a Man Loves a Woman” and “Story of My Life.”

Jacquie Lee’s “The Voice Within” (49) and James Wolpert’s “Fell in Love with a Girl” (54) bring up the rear.

Monday’s Top 6 performance show sent many “The Voice” singles into the iTunes Top 100, but as of press time, none has guaranteed itself a Top 10 multiplier bonus.

At press time, the closest of the twelve available recordings were Cole Vosbury’s “Rich Girl,” Jacquie Lee’s “Cry Baby” and Tessanne Chin’s “Redemption Song” at 22, 23 and 24, respectively. With only seven hours remaining in the voting period, however, all face a very daunting challenge in their quest for the top ten.

If a contestant’s song(s) reach the Top 10 by the close of voting at 11AM ET, NBC’s “The Voice” will multiply the corresponding iTunes vote total (sales) by five.

Proving himself a force on iTunes this week, Vosbury also has the week’s fourth best seller with “Better Man.” By 4AM ET, the song had reached 33 on the overall chart.

Will Champlin’s “A Change is Gonna Come” and “Hey Brother” follow at 36 and 37, respectively, while Matthew Schuler’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” and James Wolpert’s “I’d Do Anything for Love” are 43 and 44.

Tessanne Chin’s “Unconditionally” follows at 46, thus besting Matthew Schuler’s “Story of My Life” (52) and Jacquie Lee’s “The Voice Within” (55). Presently the slowest seller, James Wolpert’s “Fell in Love with a Girl” is ranked at 68.

    Christina kicked Matthew Shuler to the curb with those song choices. She was more focused on teenager Jacquie Lee who reminds her of herself as a teen. If I were a future contestant on “The Voice” and could choose a coach, it wouldn’t be Xtina or CeeLo. They both stink.
