An on-set source tells HollywoodLife.com that the top eight contestants from ‘The Voice’ will be going on tour and confesses producers are thinking of bringing along some fan favorites! Who do you want to see on the road?
Last week a person who works on The Voice told HollywoodLife.com that the top eight contestants were going on tour this summer. The Hollywood Reporter also has multiple sources confirming this tour. Vicci Martinez, Nakia, Javier Colon, Dia Frampton, Casey Weston, Xenia, Beverly McClellan and Frenchie Davis will be hitting the road (reportedly without the coaches,) but our insider says producers are contemplating adding a few other contestants as well!
“All we know is the top eight finalists will be going on tour, but there are whispers a few of the fan favorites could be invited to join for at least some of the stops,” our source reveals.
Unlike American Idol, there was no warning given to The Voice voters about a top eight tour, so fans may now be even more upset about certain favorites getting eliminated. After all, a lot of the singers were eliminated when they weren’t personally selected by the coaches, after they lost the America vote to someone on their team. For example, fan favorites Jeff Jenkins and Patrick Thomas were eliminated before the top eight. But would you want to see them join the gang on the road?
Blake Shelton has tweeted his enthusiasm already saying, “I feel like a proud papa with my two girls @DiaFramps and @X3NIA17 hitting the road this summer for The Voice Live On Tour. Show ‘em love!” and Adam Levine mentioned the July tour on his Twitter as well, although he’s since deleted it.
Do you think that fans should decide who should join the top eight on tour? Who would you vote for if more than just the top eight perform? Sound off below!
