'The Voice' Semifinals: Juliet Simms Owns The Night

Mon, April 30, 2012 10:57pm EST by 15 Comments

The semifinals kicked off April 30 on ‘The Voice,’ as the remaining eight contestants battled for a spot in the finals.

It was far from business-as-usual April 30 on The Voice, as the rules of the game changed for this part of the competition. All eight contestants sang, and at the end of the night, their respective coaches gave them a score. Those scores, along with America’s votes, will determine who goes home tomorrow night.

To start off the night, Tony Lucca took the stage for Team Adam Levine and sang “How Do You Like Me Now.” He sounded strong and confident and received positive comments from the coaches. Katrina Parker then performed “Killing Me Softly,” which Christina Aguilera — and her “I’m the queen” tiara — took as a chance to criticize Adam’s coaching.

Erin Willet from Team Blake Shelton sang a David Guetta song with a really weird arrangement, and Jermaine Paul definitely proved he isn’t a backup singer anymore, as Adam mentioned.

To kill some time, Team Cee Lo Green and Team Adam joined forces on the stage, just as Team Christina and Team Blake did later in the show. Blake took the stage as well, and reminded everyone why he’s on the judging panel.

First up for Team Christina, Chris Mann stuck to his roots with “Ave Maria,” and it definitely paid off as the coaches praised him. Lindsey Pavao then sang a Bon Iver song that showcased her individual style.

On Team Cee Lo, Jamar Rogers attempted his own rendition of “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” and while it was good, it wasn’t as impressive as his other performances. Juliet Simms closed the show with “This Is A Man’s World,” and again brought out the stage presence and flashy get-up — but definitely proved to be the frontrunner and best of the night.

Only four contestants will move on to the finals. My choices for the finals are Tony, Jermaine, Chris, and Juliet, although Jamar is also a favorite.

Who are YOUR picks for the finals?

Why are people voting for Juliett Simms? Anyone with any voice training knows that her voice is horrible. She cannot keep pitch and screeches. She is not versatile at all and cannot sing anything but horrible Janis Joplin sounding songs! If she win, I know the voice is rigged! Versatility is the key…and she doesn’t have it!

This girl has something wild in her style. I have final exams coming but I had to get on my phone and iPod to vote because she deserves to win more than anybody else in the show

i do not like juliet simms voice at all she sounds to me like she is grunting/ yelling i also dislike the fact that she is even on the show along with tony lucca whose voice to me sounds generic they’ve already had an oppurtunity to be stars and they already have fans which to me isn’t fair because obviously the people voting for them are biased. With that said my favorite is LINDSEU PAVAO i just love her tone/ style i am excited to see if she makes it and to hear her original song
