Is Cassadee Pope A ‘Mortal Lock’ To Win ‘The Voice’?

MTV News explores what one expert calls 'the snowball effect' that will likely result in Pope's success, whether she wins or not.

From the moment she set foot on the “Voice” stage during blind auditions, Cassadee Pope was dubbed “a star.” Since then, the 22-year-old songstress has consistently proved herself as the show’s front-runner and has emerged as the breakout star of the season.

Her status has only grown in the last few weeks, as the only female in the coveted top four. So is Pope’s success inevitable? One expert seems to think so.

“She really seemed to hit her stride,” TVLine senior editor Michael Slezak told MTV News. “I think the hype-to-talent ratio has evened out, and so it’s made her look really good. When you combine that with the fact that I think her two biggest competitors, at least as far as I saw it, went home,” Slezak said, referring to Team Adam’s Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown, both of whom were eliminated last week. “I think it almost makes her a mortal lock to win this season.”
