Pop icon Whitney Houston was poised to cement her comeback with the summer release of Sparkle. Sadly, the recently deceased pop icon won’t get the chance to enjoy it. Nevertheless, we couldn’t imagine a more fitting tribute to the late, great singer. Sony has just released the first full-length trailer for the film, which features a smiling — and singing! — Whitney. Watch it after the jump!
Cee Lo has remained cool as a cucumber all season on The Voice, while serving as a mentor for his team of young hopefuls, but last night the Gnarls Barkley singer broke down in tears — three times!– during the fifth and final evening of battle rounds.
Maybe it’s the desperation for the live shows to begin — or possibly the two-hour recaps — but March 26’s batch of performances on The Voice was the least interesting I’ve seen all season.
The battle rounds continued March 19 on The Voice with a bizarre performance — courtesy of Team Cee Lo Green — and an emotional decision from Erin Willet, whose will to continue in the competition was tested.
The Voice coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — felt the pressure this week, as they had to choose between two of their own team members after they battled it out in the boxing ring-like stage. The paired contestants had to give it their all after being mentored by their coaches and some of the industry’s finest.
The Voice‘s final round of blind auditions began Feb. 27 with each coach looking for two more contestants to complete their teams, except for Cee Lo Green who was missing three. Several performed, but the coaches were not always quick to push their buttons.
On the Feb. 20 episode of The Voice, the fourth part of the blind auditions round, the pressure was on as the judges began rounding out their teams. With only one week to go, the stakes were higher than ever. There were some great performances in this episode, but not everyone could make the cut. And again, in true The Voice fashion, every contestant had their own story to tell, each more touching than the last. Read on for highlights from tonight’s episode.
