Tag: The Voice (61-70 of 153)
As The Voice heads closer to its season finale, America’s favorite bunch of amateur singers keeps getting smaller and smaller. We’re down to six: three from Team Blake and one each from Teams Adam, Usher, and Shakira. This week’s performances offered Aretha-themed highs and Okie-themed lows. Voice recappers Adam Carlson and Samantha Highfill rank the remaining contestants heading into tonight’s elimination.
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:

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. With the shocking elimination of Team Adam’s Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill — both of whom my colleague Adam Carlson and I had pegged for the final four — America has once again sided with Team Blake. Deja vu, anyone? READ FULL STORY
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's emotional performance of 'Over You' pays tribute to tornado victims -- VIDEO
All the performances on last night’s Voice results show were dedicated to the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes, but no performance struck a chord with the audience quite like the first one of the night — Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s stripped-down acoustic version of Lambert’s hit “Over You.”
Many Voice fans know the song after Cassadee Pope’s breakthrough performance last season, but it was originally written by Shelton and Lambert in memory of his deceased brother. Last night, it reached a much larger number of people in the couple’s home state. Watch the moving performance below. READ FULL STORY
With the news that The Voice judges will continue rotating come next fall and spring, we already asked you how you felt about the blond bombshells who will share the designated “female” spot amongst the coaches. But now it’s time to compare the two men who will be swapping out places on the panel, CeeLo and Usher (Blake and Adam have become somewhat permanent adornments). Is CeeLo too friendly? Is Usher too cool? We weigh in on the debate with our analysis, and then you get to tell us which superstar you prefer, the one with mono-colored outfits or the one who always wears red shoes: READ FULL STORY
Ever since Shakira was first announced as Christina’s replacement, fans of the blond vocalists have been participating in a battle round of their own. And now that we know that both Christina and Shakira will return to their red swivel chairs within the next year, fans are more polarized than ever. While both are undoubtedly superstars, as coaches, they both have their pros and cons. Is Christina too mean? Is Shakira too nice? We’ve heard it all before. Now, we weigh in with our analysis, and you get to tell us which bombshell you prefer: READ FULL STORY
Last night, R&B singer Vedo took the stage during The Voice’s knockout rounds. He sang Bryan Adams “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” and impressed Usher enough to advance to next week’s live rounds. He also talked a lot about his mother, who recently died — something Usher acknowledged in his comments after the performance; and something that’s been mentioned on the show every single time Vedo appears. I wrote about how this makes me feel in last night’s recap: a combination of annoyed, deeply moved, and deeply apathetic. But many commenters disagreed. I still feel that way, and I’m assuming a lot of you still disagree with me.
So what are we really talking about when we talk about someone’s dead mom?
The Voice’s battle rounds are getting bloody, and they claimed their biggest victim so far this season on last night’s episode, when big-haired, big-voiced Jessica Childress was sent home after battling it out against fellow Team Usher-ite Vedo, on Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” As my colleague Samantha Highfill noted in her recap, Childress is the show’s “cutest personality” — and her blind audition with Mars’ “Marry Me” was all kinds of fizzy (cruel irony). So what are we to do after her departure, Voice fans: mourn? And more importantly: What about Jess?
But hey, the age of reality competitions teaches an important lesson to its most tenacious cast-offs: If you’re good enough to earn a spotlight, carry it with you off the stage. In the interest of positive thinking, here is some unsolicited/expert advice on where Childress’ career can and should go next:
The weather is warming up, the brown things are turning green, and it’s time to watch some baseball. Or, if stadiums aren’t your thing, watch some baseball in a dark theater on a giant screen. Advance word on the Jackie Robinson flick 42 is quiet, though the First Family loves it.
