'The Voice' Finale, Night 1: Tony & Jermaine Wow The Coaches

Tue, May 8, 2012 9:07am EDT by 4 Comments

The four finalists gave it their all on the first part of the two-night finale of ‘The Voice.’ Who do YOU think should win?

Fighting for a recording contract with Universal Republic, the four remaining contestants — Tony Lucca, Juliet Simms, Chris Mann and Jermaine Paul each delivered three performances on the May 7 episode of The Voice: a song they chose, one of their coach’s hits, and a duet with their coach.

Opening the show, Jermaine brought out some R. Kelly, singing “I Believe I Can Fly.” He was great, and he was just as great when singing coach Blake Shelton‘s song and during his duet with Blake. The odd couple complimented each other during their “Soul Man” performance, making it my favorite of the night.

Juliet sang “Crazy,” a song coach Cee Lo Green knew well, but definitely did not live up to the standard she set for herself last week. She later sang with Cee Lo, and they both showed off their wild side with — what else — “Born To Be Wild.” She may have closed the show, but she still fell short of a great performance… even though the coaches said it was good.

Chris and his coach, Christina Aguilera, teamed up for Andrea Bocelli‘s “Prayer,” and definitely kept up with his power-house coach. He later sang “The Voice Within” and “You Raise Me Up,” both of which were sung very well. Chris is definitely the most vocally trained — but would he appeal to everyone?

Tony definitely has my vote. He’s proven himself to be the most versatile, and his version of “99 Problems” was really good. Christina found it offensive to women, causing Adam Levine to strike back, but he then showed love with a “Team Xtina” shirt. (I’m still not sure what her problem was.) Tony later sang a Beatles song with his coach, and was just as impressive when he took on Maroon 5‘s “Harder To Breathe.” (Even if he forgot the words!)

Who do you think should be crowned The Voice on tomorrow’s finale? It’s still anyone’s game, but I’m thinking Tony and Jermaine have the upper hand in the competition. So will Team Adam win again, or will Blake get his first victory? Cast your vote below, then drop a comment with your thoughts!

Tony Luca is boring. he has no spark on stage. he belongs in a bar singing.

If he wins, he will fail. It will be yet another year where The Voice fails to produce a star. he has had multiple albums, t.v. shows and opened for gigantic acts and yet he has failed to become successful in his own right. he has zero chance of being a star.

The Voice needs a legitimate star this year and Tony Luca isn’t going to be the guy to do that. Too bad all the anti-Xtina drama got him this far. What a joke.

i always support Team ADAM bcoz i luv Mr.Adam Levine but i dont know why i feel that he is not going to win. well, if not Adam, i want Blake to win bcoz he is not only a great coach but also a great person and he deserves to win bcoz Jermaine sang very well in his final performance.

I’m not sure if Tony forgot the words to “Harder to Breathe” or if he just literally ran out of breath. LOL Either way, he recovered well and, flub aside, did a really excellent cover of the song.

No he didn’t do a great job. He forgot the words and, oh yeah, he couldn’t breath, uh just a little to literal dude.

Tony is a talentless hack. If he wins this season, The Voice loses. They can’t survive another season without producing a viable recording star. Tony has proven over the last 21 years, that he doesn’t have what it takes.
