Sharon Osbourne has had enough of crappy singing shows -- VIDEO

Sharon Osbourne has had it with singing competition shows — all 600 of them.

Some background: Osbourne was a judge on the original X Factor in the U.K. from 2004 to 2007 and once again in 2013, as well as on America’s Got Talent from 2007 to 2012. But this doesn’t make her a fan of these sorts of series.

'The Voice': Eliminated singers are...

And just like that, the Top 12 is down to a Top 10.

'The Voice' contestant Kristen Merlin powers through mid-performance mic outage -- VIDEO

The best part of watching The Voice is, well, hearing the voices.

That can’t be said for Top 12 contestant Kristen Merlin, who took the stage during season 6′s first live episode Monday — only to have her microphone fail completely during the last third of her performance.

Merlin was in the midst of singing her solid rendition of Sugarland’s “Stay” (delivering one of her strongest performances) when her voice cut out about 80 seconds into the song. A few seconds later, Merlin removed her in-ear monitor while she continued to sing; when a stagehand finally gave her a microphone 20 seconds later, the audience had already begun cheering as Merlin finished the song with a pitch-perfect “Stay” (that’s the title — everyone take a shot!). Following the performance, overwhelming audience response and enthusiasm from the coaches — including Merlin’s coach Shakira — visibly moved the singer to tears.

Is Gwen Stefani a good fit for 'The Voice'? -- POLL

The Voice has had its fair share of megastar mentors, starting with original quartet Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. And the reality contest has been able to keep up its twice-a-year schedule by cycling out some of those judges with the equally star-powered Shakira and Usher.

So it comes as no surprise that Gwen Stefani might be the next superstar to join the NBC show. TMZ reports that it’s a done deal, while The Hollywood Reporter says the No Doubt singer is simply in talks, but NBC wouldn’t confirm the news when EW reached out for comment.

Whether the addition pans out and Stefani indeed replaces Aguilera in season 7 — which begins taping in June, airs in the fall, and includes another new judge in Pharrell Williams — let’s talk about what we think of the idea. There’s no question that she has an impressive career, both with No Doubt and as a solo artist, but how well do we know her personality? The Voice panel has thrived on the dynamic between the mentors, most notably with Blake and Adam’s bromance and Christina’s tension with the others. Where will Gwen fit in? It’s also worth noting that Stefani has worked with one of her potential chair-mates: Pharrell (with The Neptunes) produced her breakout solo single “Hollaback Girl,” and she contributed vocals to his 2005 solo single “Can I Have It Like That.”

'The Voice': Who's on our Top 12 power list?

Now that the playoffs are over, this season of The Voice has found its Top 12, and it’s time to vote!

You’ve read the recap, and now I present my most updated Power List, ranking the players on where they stand in the competition as of the playoff performances on Tuesday, April 15. Remember, we’ve seen these artists so spread out throughout the year that next week’s first live show will be a sprightly reminder of comparing them all on the same playing field. That explains the major jumps in this list from last week to this week.

What goes into this power list? It’s partly my predictions about how far these people will make it through the competition, coupled with what you’re all saying in the comments, as well as my own tastes, although those may or may not be reflected. (If it was strictly based on my personal preference, Bria Kelly would be at the far bottom, and Kristen Merlin would be significantly higher, for instance.)

Here’s who’s on top and who’s on the bottom as we head into the live shows on Monday: READ FULL STORY
