A slew of season two finalists returned to perform on the stage that made them stars, as ‘The Voice’ made its final cut before solidifying the final three artists moving on to next week’s finale! Did the right person go home?

The top four of season three of The Voice took the stage for the last time together tonight before one unlucky artist was sent packing. But between Cassadee Pope, Terry McDermott, Nicholas David, and Trevin Hunte, did the right person go home?

The Music

Terry and Cassadee performed “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men, and it was a really great opening performance. Terry’s voice sounded like it was made especially to sing this song. Cassadee didn’t get much opportunity to show off until the very end, which was a shame.

Season two’s Juliet Simms stopped by to perform her new single “Wild Child”. I’ll admit that I didn’t watch season two, so I wasn’t familiar with Juliet. I was not expecting that voice to come out of that girl. The song was a pretty rollicking good time. I might make an iTunes purchase of it later tonight!

Another visit from a season two finalist, RaeLynn. She performed her new single “Boyfriend”. I wasn’t into this as much as I was Juliet. Maybe you were?

The final visitor from season two, Chris Mann, stopped by to belt out “Roads,” his new ballad. It was a perfectly fine performance, if a bit bland.

Nicholas and Trevin joined forces on Mariah Carey‘s “Hero,” which was such an odd song choice. The way each had to sing in a different octave was awkward, with the lower notes proving too low for Nick. There were moments where his voice just dropped out all together. Not a shining moment for a duo with one half who was about to be eliminated. Maybe nerves mucked it up?

The Results

–The first artist safe: Terry. Unless something insanely shocking happened and Cassadee was sent packing, Trevin or Nicholas had to be nervous at this point.

–The second artist safe: Cassadee. See?

–The final artist safe: Nicholas, meaning tonight is the end of the road for Trevin. This outcome felt pretty expected. For me, it came down to either Terry or Trevin to go home, and once Terry was saved first, I’d already prepared to see Trevin go.

It’ll be interesting to see what Trevin is able to do in the future. His voice didn’t always work with contemporary music that someone of his age would need to make to be successful, commercially. Hopefully coach Cee Lo Green can mentor him further and find the perfect spot for him in today’s music landscape.

With that, we ready ourselves for next week’s finale extravaganza! Can Nick or Terry stop Cassadee from taking the final win, HollywoodLifers? Let me know in the comments below!
