Going into Tuesday’s Season 14 finale of The Voice, the question seemed to be less “Who’s going to win?” and more “Was Kyla Jade or Brynn Cartelli going to win?” (Which was still more suspenseful than the ending of Season 13, since a victory by Team Blake’s Chloe Kohanski had been a foregone conclusion well ahead of the finish line.)

The more I listened to her single “Old Soul” today, the more I loved it. But this… it was just too country-rock for the country-soul singer. She was better on the choruses, but why have her sing a song in the finale that doesn’t play...
