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.
It takes a big man to admit when he’s made a mistake — especially when that mistake is a fart on live, national television. Cee Lo Green let one rip April 23 on The Voice, but unlike so many famous flatulent faces before him, the coach totally owned up to his gas. “I kind of had a nervous stomach,” Cee Lo told HollywoodLife.com on April 24. “I had to do something I didn’t want to do, which was to vote one of my people off the show, so my stomach was acting up. It could have been nerves… or the Taco Bell that I ate.”
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.
Was I watching the wrong show April 9, or were the majority of this week’s performances on The Voice pretty forgettable? I found myself desperately waiting for a knockout performance, but had to wait almost two hours to get it.
It was an intense night on The Voice as Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton each had to save one person from their team’s bottom three, and the contestants that weren’t saved by America had to sing for their lives — and a spot in the top four.
Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine‘s teams finally got to relax April 2, as they watched Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton’s teams perform live. The night was filled with 12 different performances of which only a couple stood out — for good and bad reasons.
