Emmys 2013: Jeff Daniels? Merritt Wever? Colbert?!?! Ranking the upsets from crazy to crazier

Midway through Hour Three of this year’s Emmys, host Neil Patrick Harris joked: “No one in America is winning their office pool.” Except that wasn’t really a joke: The 2013 Emmy Awards featured seven big upsets in the major primetime awards. Longtime also-rans got their moment in the sun. Some low-key performances beat out showier and more popular contenders. And, well, the boys of Breaking Bad boys went home emptyhanded. (But don’t weep for them too much.) Below, we rank the upsets from “We should’ve seen that coming” to “We couldn’t have seen that coming even if we were writing a TV show about this two years from now.”

7. The Colbert Report for Outstanding Variety Series
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart won this award for a straight decade, a winning streak unparallelled in Emmys history. But if any series was ever going to beat Daily Show, it had to be spinoff ColbertColbert‘s win comes, somewhat auspiciously, after Stewart took the summer off. Could this indicate a changing of the guard in the Comedy Central late night political-comedy racket? More importantly: Since it technically aired outside this year’s Emmys eligibility period, does this mean we might get an acceptance-speech recreation of the Colbert “Get Lucky” video at Emmys 2014?

John Lennon auditioning for 'The Voice'? Don't imagine, watch this

It’s an old question about singing competition shows: How would real music legends have fared when facing the judges? Would the likes of Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Stevie Nicks or Michael Jackson have ever passed the audition rounds to join the ranks of blandly competent karaoke singers that typically populate shows like Fox’s American Idol?

Or how about John Lennon? Below, a crafty editor has put together a video imagining the Beatles’ singer on NBC’s The Voice doing a blind audition (the video is from a 1975 concert; one of Lennon’s final live performances). Needless to say, Adam, Shakira, Usher and Blake are not impressed. READ FULL STORY

Is there beauty in Adam Levine's neck beard?

Screen Shot 2013-06-17 at 9.35.17 PM

I CAN’T TELL. Just pressed play on The Voice and I’m trying so hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, as I truly do love both rugged facial hair and mysteries. But this is just confounding. Is it a goatee or a beard? Does the goatee overpower the beard (rock beats scissors) or is it the other way around, with the beard bubbling up from the surface to eventually consume the goatee (paper covers rock)?

Hey, here’s our full recap of tonight’s season 4 performance finale of The Voice. It’s way better.

Update: This mess looked better out of the spotlight. Less “layers” involved.

I mean, I should definitely just delete all of this. Tell me whyyyyyyyyy.

'The Voice': Why does America love Danielle Bradbery?

Danielle Bradbery from Cypress, Texas, has performed nine times, competitively, on this season of The Voice. Earlier this year, her mentor, Blake Shelton, said she isn’t just important to the country music industry, she’s important to the world. Danielle will probably win (at least one Vegas gambler puts her odds at 3-1, ahead of fellow finalists Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers). Danielle is also 16 years old.

Adam Levine tweets what he means

Adam Levine is no stranger to making his opinions known on Twitter, in interviews, and anywhere else people will listen. Tuesday night’s hot mike moment on The Voice when the Maroon 5 frontman and coach on the show claimed to “hate this country,” after two of his contestant’s were voted off the singing competition, sparked yet another round of Levine tweets. He later explained it was a joke made in an emotional moment. But last night’s performance was just another comment to add to the stack of bold declarations from the world’s most-tattooed nice Jewish boy. Let’s look back:

'The Voice' goes country again -- Why last night's eliminations could be the show's downfall

After last night, The Voice is officially on it’s way to the Top 6 and quickly falling into the all-too-familiar pattern of last season.
