'The Voice' Quarter Finals: Adam & Cee Lo Cut 2 More Singers

Tue, April 24, 2012 12:04am EST by 8 Comments

Adam & Cee Lo’s teams battled April 23 for the remaining six spots in the competition, leading both coach to make a difficult elimination.

First up was Team Cee Lo: Jamal Rogers opened the show with a good performance of Bon Jovi‘s “It’s My Life,” and received major praise from the audience. Next, James Massone intended to charm with his falsetto, but fell short of a strong performance. It was too safe. Cheesa then took on the late Whitney Houston, and she did it well. She didn’t measure up to the likes of Whitney — who ever does? — but she still gave it her all. It was at least good enough to keep her in the competition. Juliet Simms ended the Cee Lo set by singing Aerosmith while wearing a pair of black wings on her back… and feathers! While she’s not my favorite, I have to admit I actually paid attention to her performance. It wasn’t bad, even if it was a bit over the top.

Both coaches also took to the stage with their teams. Cee Lo Green brought all the antics and colorful wardrobes — twice! The first was a ’70s inspired performance of “Dancing In The Street,” while the second was a futuristic Greek theatrical performance, complete with glowing teeth. Adam Levine and his team, on the other hand, weren’t as flashy. He melted into the background playing drums, allowing his team to take center stage.

Katrina Parker went up first for Adam’s team, followed by Mathai, who performed an old Nelly Furtado tune. She seemed to lose her voice towards the end, unless that was just a bad falsetto. The overly sweet coaches loved it, though. Up next, Tony Luca took on “…Baby One More Time,” and was the stand-out of the night. Fan favorite Pip also attempted to change up his style with a song that did no favors for him and didn’t seem to win him the approval of the coaches.

Went it came down to eliminations, Cee Lo let go of James, who was clearly the weakest of the four, and Adam sent Pip home. No surprises there. The remaining contestants have to wait until tomorrow’s results show to see who will go on to the semifinals.

I am disappointed with adams decision. Pip is much stronger than mathai and katrina even i also believe his music would be much more marketable if he won the contest. Extremely disappointed that such a strong talent was lost. I think ceelo made the right choice though, he sent home the weakest member of his team. james is good but his performances are uncomparable to the other members of his team. Im personally fed up with this show, the strongest players are always eliminated.

His previous contestant was a white girl. And for a black guy, he is very gay-friendly. Cee Lo is the last person on earth u should call a racist ;)
