We’ve finally reached the end of three full nights of The Voice and, while tonight was certainly a mixed bag in terms of talent, there were a few standouts who are sure to be around the competition for a while –namely, Nicole Nelson. Meanwhile, Domo, and coach Cee Lo Green‘s reaction to her, stood out for all the wrong reasons.
It was night two of The Voice‘s three-night premiere week, and our favorite panel of coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton — were hungry for more voices to mentor. Luckily, Julio Castillo and Adriana Louise came to the rescue!
The Voice stands out among the rest of the singing competitions on TV today because the show refuses to include, and mock, the singing hopefuls who show up to audition without much talent. The show premiered its third season tonight, with the all-star judges — Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton — beginning to put their teams together. While the full episode may have been a bit underwhelming, there were a few singers who are sure to be at the top of the pack.
The May 1 episode of The Voice began with an odd-couple performance by one of last season’s finalists, Dia Frampton, and rapper Kid Cudi. One of my favorites last season, Dia sounded great. There were other solid performances throughout the night, but Dia’s was definitely my favorite.
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.
The Voice‘s live results show kicked off the best way possible April 24 with a performance by Florence and the Machine. Not only did they put on a great performance, but they were even joined by Cee Lo Green‘s Team! Of course, the fun ended there.
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.
