'The Voice' exit Q&A: Caroline Pennell talks about applying to college, being the last singer on Team Cee Lo

Just like the holidays, The Voice finals are creeping up on us. After Tuesday’s eliminations episode, only six singers are left to duke it out next week. We caught up with one of the two eliminated artists from the top eight, Caroline Pennell, the 17-year-old high school senior whose honeysuckle-sweet voice charmed America and her colorful coach Cee Lo Green. She began the competition as a shy singer, seemingly unaware of her talent. But after making it to the top eight, which isn’t any easy task, Pennell didn’t leave empty-handed, “I think a visible change would probably be just my comfort level, my confidence.” And who could complain about being eliminated when they’ve experienced something most teenagers could only dream of — “I’ve had some of the best times I have in my whole life, which has not been very long, but I mean there’s so much to take away from it.” She spoke to us about her thoughts on the Twitter save, her coach’s last words, and her next big challenge — those pesky college applications.

'The Voice' results: Eliminations and instant save?

SPOILER ALERT! Only eight singers remained at the beginning of The Voice‘s Tuesday eliminations. After two messy group songs and a very strange Cee Lo Green Cirque du Soleil-style performance, the bottom three singers contained two expected artists and one very surprising potential upset. Find out who got eliminated after the jump….


'The Voice' Top 6 Power List: Is it time for Team Cee Lo to go home?

You know the drill, Voice fans. There will be two more singers on the virtual chopping block tonight. And with only eight singers remaining, we’re entering prime upset territory. Could an all-season frontrunner very well go home? While Monday night was a bit lopsided in terms of performances, Team Adam delivered a hat trick of the night’s best renditions. Team Christina’s wunderkinds weren’t too far behind, and then in no-singer’s land of the bottom three, I’d place Team Blake and Team Cee Lo. Team Adam still has his team intact, but Team Cee Lo, with his lone star Caroline Pennell left, is hanging on by a thread.

Taking into consideration iTunes Top Songs appearances (as of press time) and their Monday night performances, here’s how I would rank the remaining eight singers:

6. Matthew Schuler (Team Christina)
Matthew is in a song choice drought. Monday’s Imagine Dragons tune “It’s Time” wasn’t the best use of his talents, and by the looks of its low position on iTunes top songs, #92, it didn’t resonate with fans either. But don’t completely count him out, his “Hallelujah” cover is still a presence on the iTunes. I think this Christina contender will bounce back in no time, hopefully with less hokey backup dancers.

5. Tessanne Chin (Team Adam)
Tessanne went the pop-reggae route on Monday, showing us she can sing casual, too. If by casual, you mean turn a lilting No Doubt song into another Whitney-Houston-ified powerhouse, jaw-dropping performance. I call safe on this one.

4. Jacquie Lee (Team Christina)
Jacquie has a niche — soulful, heartbreak power-belters. While I’m not crazy about her junior-Christina status, I can’t see her going home this early in the final leg of the competition.

3. James Wolpert (Team Adam)
James and Freddie Mercury songs are a match made in classic rock heaven. More, please. But I still don’t get the mic-stand as cane schtick.

2. Cole Vosbury (Team Blake)
Cole has shown he’s still got some vocal tricks hidden up that beard. He can sing sweet, sing powerful — a more versatile Austin Jenckes.

1. Will Champlin (Team Adam)
At last, Will gets his due. This season’s clutch singer just transformed himself into a top contender with his highly ambitious Etta James cover.

Elimination Predictions:
1. Caroline Pennell – I place Caroline this low because she was in the bottom three last week. While she has a sizable Twitter following that surely helped her last Tuesday, I don’t think she has the chops to make it to Top 6. She peaked early in the competition and has yet to showcase voice versatility.
2. Ray Boudreaux – I’m still surprised that Ray has made it this far in the game. His coach Blake Shelton tried to showcase other sides of his voice, but Ray, as good as he is at working the crowd, is a one-trick soul pony.

What are your thoughts on the remaining eight singers? Who’s still a contender? Let us know your picks for elimination night in the comments below.

The Voice airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

Kat Robichaud's 'The Voice' exit Q&A: 'I know it's not the end for me'

When we caught up with coach Cee Lo Green’s glam rockette Kat Robichaud, who was one of two contestants eliminated on Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, she was just as feisty on the phone as she was on stage. She high-kicked, snarled, and crowd-surfed her way to make it to the top ten, in no small part due to her production team. “They’ve never once told me, ‘No, we can’t do that,'” she said.

As the first winner of the Twitter instant save, Robichaud wasn’t bitter that she wasn’t saved again by voters. “I know it’s not the end for me. The whole friggin’ reason I went on this show is to better my career. So this is the jumping-off point.”

Read on for our Q&A with the high-kicking Kat, in which she talks about how Cee Lo orchestrated her performance of Pat Benatar’s “We Belong,” her Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman connection, and her plans for the future.

'The Voice' exit Q&A: Austin Jenckes says 'It was just my time to go home'

On Tuesday night’s episode of The Voice, two more singers went home, leaving a freshly minted top eight. EW spoke with one of the eliminees today, folk-rock power singer, Austin Jenckes, about his thoughts on the controversial Twitter instant save, what his Coach Blake Shelton is like off-camera, grooming that beard of his, and who he thinks will win the competition.

Check out our Q&A with Jenckes after the jump.
