‘The Voice’ Season 2 Episode 21 Review (Season Finale): Winner Crowned!

9 May 2012 2:44 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The season two finale of The Voice was quite the extravaganza as former contestants and a number of today’s biggest artists joined the finalists for the big moment. As predicted, Jermaine Paul took the title at the end of the two hour live finale and what a well deserved win this was. But there was plenty of music leading up to that moment, some good, some bad.

As part of the finale celebration, each finalist chose former artists of the season to perform with on the the stage one last time this season, each individual reminders why Paul was indeed the best person to win. Tony Lucca from Team Adam performed “Go Your Own Way” with Jordis Unga. Lucca not making it into the final two was wildly disappointing but I cannot say that I missed Unga. Never a big fan of hers, last night’s performance did not help her case. »

'The Voice' winner: Jermaine Paul beats Juliet Simms, Tony Lucca, and Chris Mann

8 May 2012 9:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The contestants on "The Voice" haven't had an uneventful season by any means. There were celebrity feuds, babies born, parents lost -- but finally, the final four emerged. Tony Lucca, Juliet Simms, Chris Mann, and Jermaine Paul took their places on "The Voice" stage tonight for the last time this season.

Before any decisions were made, though, the artists got to have a little fun. It was a refreshing, laid back, no-pressure performance night for the contestants who have been singing for their lives week after week.

First up, Jermaine Paul invited his pals Jamar Rogers, James Massone, and Pip to join him for "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5. They embraced the boy band spirit with matching outfits, and even some choreography. Jermaine said he chose the song because he really felt that America wanted those fellow contestants back on the show -- and after such a smile-inducing performances, »

The Voice Season 2 Finale Recap: And the Winner Is… [Updated]

8 May 2012 8:12 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Season 2 of The Voice may have been a little coaches-centric for my taste, but Tuesday’s two-hour telecast was — and I say this with no sarcasm whatsoever — structured more perfectly than any reality-competition finale I’ve ever seen. Oh, sure, there were a few awkward moments where the Top 4 were painfully grafted onto performances by big-name artists with products or tours to promote — Juliet with Flo Rida? Tony, Jermaine, and Chris relegated to undetectable backup for Hall & Oates? — but their “victory lap” ditties allowed them to bring back fallen comrades in a celebration of the weeks and months of music »

The Voice Finale: Crowning A Champion

8 May 2012 7:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

From complaints over Christina Aguilera, to a few truly impressive performances, season two of The Voice has offered viewers ups, downs, high notes and lows. And it comes to an end tonight.

In two hours, following Monday's final performance show, the NBC competition will crown its second winner. Seems like the perfect time for a live blog, doesn't it? Comment along with me below as The Voice names a winner and Christina tries not to alienate any more fans...

-------------------------------------------

9:00 Here. We. Goooooooooo!

9:03 As we watch a recap of last night, I am reminded that I didn't like Jermaine's solo performance nearly as much as everyone else, and Christina really hates Tony Lucca.

9:06 Oh my goodness!  How many times are we going to listen these coaches wax on about how great these contestants are? We get it. They're awesome.

9:10 Jermaine Paul is hitting the stage again, »

‘The Voice’ Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Satisfying Results for Team Adam & Team Cee Lo

11 April 2012 6:34 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

If you were one of the many viewers shocked and disappointed by the results show of The Voice last week, cheer up because your favorites stayed this week! Pop sensation and current coach on The Voice UK, Jessie J opened the results show with a performance of her hit single, “Domino” joined by Team Christina. Jessie J set the tone for a very satisfying night. The right dominoes fell tonight that is for sure.

Team Adam was first to find out their fate and the results were noticeably more satisfying than last week’s results show. Tony Lucca, Mathai, and surprisingly Pip were saved by America, forcing Kim Yarbrough, Katrina Parker, and Karla Davis to deliver a last chance performance, putting their fate in Adam Levine’s hands. Yarbrough has been a favorite of Levine’s but Parker is a favorite of mine, and Davis is a throwaway so the »

The Voice Results: Lucca Who Made It Through

10 April 2012 10:09 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It was another action packed night on The Voice, as the results were handed out and four more singers were sent home. There were some contestants digging down deep to put on the performance of their lives.

There was also time for a quick performance by Jessie J with Team Xtina. Didn't they see that there was no point in brining the team on with the guest performer last week? They didn't do anything up there.

The only other negative from the night was the return of the awkward Sprint Lounge. At least this time Adam Levine mentioned how terrible it was, and hopefully they make some changes. I don't know what those changes need to be, but something needs to happen soon.

Now let's get to the results...

Team Adam

Safe: Mathai, Tony Lucca, Pip

I couldn't agree more with America on these choices, but what about the contestants in danger of leaving? »

'The Voice' coaches Adam Levine and Cee-Lo eliminate four contestants

10 April 2012 7:59 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Voice" aired its second live elimination show on Tuesday night, this time for coaches Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green to eliminate two contestants each from their teams. Twelve contestants performed on Monday, but only four from each team could make it through to the next round.

For Team Adam, America initially voted to save Mathai, Tony Lucca, and Pip. That left Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis, and Katrina Parker on the chopping block. Each woman sang in the hopes of getting Adam's final save. Kim sang "Spotlight" and Karla sang "I Can't Make You Love Me." It was Katrina's rendition of Gwen Stefani's "Don't Speak," however, that really rocked the house.

Cee-Lo, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton all said that they'd choose Katrina. Adam agreed. "Rather than have it be a long drawn out thing I'm not going to be emotional about this decision, I have to make the »

‘The Voice’ Eliminations, Round 2: Four More Finalists Say Goodbye

10 April 2012 7:45 PM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Were the right contestants cut (and saved) this week? Read our full recap & give us your thoughts! The second round of eliminations took place April 10 on The Voice, and with the performances being very disappointing the night before, the contestants really stepped it up to prove why they were in the competition to begin with -- even if it was a bit late. Jessie J started the night as the guest performer, eventually joined by Christina Aguilera's team, singing her hit "Domino." And then came the results: Mathai, Tony Lucca, and Pip were all saved by America on Adam Levine's team. This left Kim Yarbrough, Karla Davis and Katrina Parker to sing for their lives. Kim took the stage first, but her attempt was pretty weak. Karla sang next, but fell even farther than Kim. Before Katrina sang her No Doubt cover, you had to know Adam would save her. »

The Voice: Adam Levine & Cee Lo Green's Teams Face First Live Elimination

10 April 2012 7:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For the first time on The Voice this season, the 12 contestants on Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green's teams found themselves at the mercy of America's votes. The coaches had high praise Monday night for Jamar Rodgers (Team Cee Lo), who performed Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way," and classic rocker Juliet Simms (Team Cee Lo), who took on "Roxanne" by the Police. At the other end of the spectrum were former model Erin Martin (Team Cee Lo), whose lackluster vocals on "Walk Like an Egyptian" left the judges unimpressed, and former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca, whom Christina Aguilera who called "one-dimensional. »

The Voice Recap: Did the Right Contestants Get Saved This Week?

10 April 2012 7:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nothing like singing your heart out for one final chance at reality TV/singing stardom only to receive an unceremonious slap on the rump from Carson Daly that sends you down the gauntlet of potential anonymity.

But yep, this is The Voice, and that’s how the results-show telecasts are structured: America picks three out of six singers from each coach’s team to advance; the three vocalists in limbo grab their mics, one at a time, to try to earn a repireve; and then our trusty host brushes ‘em off the stage while a decision is made about which »

The Voice Eliminations: Who From Team Adam and Team Cee Lo Were Saved Tonight?

10 April 2012 7:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Unfortunately, we had some more goodbyes to give tonight. After last night's entertaining live show from the hopeful contestants on Team Adam and Team Cee Lo, we found who captured America's hearts enough to move on in the competition and who had to lay their souls on the stage in hopes that coaches Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green would come to their rescue. Let's get to it... Team Adam Mathai, Tony Lucca and Pip were safe, leaving Katrina Parker, Kim Yarbrough and Karla Davis up for elimination. Kim brought out her inner diva and performed Jennifer Hudson's "Spotlight," Karla sang "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt and lastly, Katrina gave us her »

‘The Voice’ Season 2 Episode 12 Review: Week 2 of Live Shows Are Mediocre

10 April 2012 1:53 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

If there is a winner from The Voice this season from Team Christina or Team Cee Lo, the options are slim as the artists proved this week. There were definitely less standouts this week, or at least less phenomenal standouts. People stood out for the wrong reasons this week be it nerves, song choice, pitch, or any number of things. Not even a handful of vocalists came out as strong as they could have this week so results are going to be very nerve-wrecking tonight. Team Adam easily took the win last night with Juliet Simms being the only vocalist from Team Cee Lo to really kill it so between these two teams, the remaining artists really have to hope that the odds work out for them.

Team Adam favorite, Katrina Parker kicked off the second live performance show with “Tonight, Tonight” by Smashing Pumpkins. What was hysterical was watching »

The Voice Recap: Xtina Marks the Spot

10 April 2012 7:27 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton may have been the co-winners of the battle to deliver the best one-liner on this week’s episode of The Voice, but in a surprise turn of events, they lost the war of taking home Most Valuable Judge trophy to Christina Aguilera.

Oh, sure, Blake’s “I almost threw my panties on the stage” was a priceless response to James Massone’s lady-baiting rendition of “Don’t Know Why.” And Adam hit the bullseye poking fun at Blake’s consternation over a group of shirtless male backup dancers: ”I think that Blake just bought a one-way ticket to Boner Town. »

"The Voice" Live Round: Genius in a Bottle?

10 April 2012 6:58 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Have you noticed yourself fast-forwarding through Adam Levine's critiques on The Voice and waiting patiently for Christina Aguilera to speak? Have you noticed that's an absolutely insane scenario? Because I'm doing it too. And I'm scared.

Christina Aguilera has become the show's least sympathetic and/or sentimental panelist. She's thoroughly genuine, and even if she doesn't reach the caliber of my favorite 10 reality judges, she's exactly what The Voice needs: unflinching truth-telling. I hope she keeps it up in the weeks to come. Not just because it's entertaining (How about when she smacked Down her former Mousketeer buddy Tony Lucca?), but because it heightens the show's stakes. Fear this dirrty, caterwauling diva, contestants.

The Voice's second week of live rounds proved to be a mixed bag ranging from towering renditions of rock classics to meek attempts at dated pop songs. Let's invade and grade 'em all.

The Voice Review: Walk Like Er-in-Mar-tin

9 April 2012 10:37 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Voice returned for part two of the Top 24, treating the audience to a couple of outstanding performances, a few horrendous ones, a one-way ticket to Bonertown courtesy of Adam Levine, and a cheap shot like none other from Christina Aguilera to Tony Lucca.

Let's get right to the action...

Team Adam - Katrina Parker - "Tonight Tonight"

Adam wanted her to get away from sounding like Adele.  Well, no one was going to confuse her voice with Adele's here.  This was a solid performance, but nothing I would write home about for the first performance of the night.

Xtina said Katrina's voice really captivated her, but wanted her to rock out more and said there were a few pitchy notes.  Cee Lo loved the staging, and then rambled on about the Smashing Pumpkins. Adam thought she killed it.

Grade: B-

Team Cee Lo - Cheesa - "Don't Leave Me »

‘The Voice’ Live Shows Round 2: Jamar Rogers Owns The Night

9 April 2012 9:17 PM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine's teams went head-to-head April 9 for a disappointing second round of the live shows. 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. On team Adam Levine, Katrina Parker was decent. Then, power-house Kim Yarbrough sang Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," and while her big voice was ever present, her overall performance fell short of and didn't quite fit her. The coaches seemed scared to tell her that, so they gave it to her nicely. Mathai sang "Ordinary People," using her quirky unique tone to try to charm the coaches, but her performance was a bit more lounge-like than nationwide competition-worthy. Tony Lucca received praises from the coaches, but I almost forgot about him »

'The Voice' battle rounds: Whitney Myer v Kim Yarbrough - video

13 March 2012 5:33 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Adam Levine put Whitney Myer and Kim Yarbrough into battle on last night's episode of The Voice. The singers performed 'No More Drama' on the show in an attempt to make it through to the live stages of the competition. Watch Whitney and Kim's battle below: Blake Shelton began the comments by describing the battle as "colossal", adding that it was "just so good" that he doesn't know who he would choose. "I pick Carson," he joked. Christina Aguilera said that there was a "dynamic, richness and confidence" in Kim's tone that she "couldn't deny", but the final decision was up to Adam. "They're both great singers," he said. "You both have a great, bright future ahead of you. Just know this is not easy... I really love you guys. It's been (more) »

‘The Voice’ Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Battle Rounds Part Two – The Best go Head-to-Head

13 March 2012 3:23 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Battle Rounds of The Voice reached a high this week as the best of the best in this competition went head to head as well as the best of the best against the hopeless. What an intense battle. Last week was a breeze compared to this week. Live shows are going to wreck the phone lines this year. This talent is truly out of this world. If you’re not watching The Voice, catch up as soon as possible and thank us all later. This is where the entertainment is at!

Team Christina is shaping out to be quite a fierce one… but we all knew that it would. In this week’s episode,

Geoff McBride met the end of his fate after battling it out with Sera Hill, singing “Chain of Fools.” After winning Christina Aguilera over during the blind auditions, Sera Hill was going to make it to »

“The Voice” Battle Rounds: Do Ya Think I’m Stupid?

13 March 2012 8:28 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The Voice was a bittersweet joyride last night: I lost one of my favorite trillers, but we still have next week to see if my Queen-killing bald balladeer (bald-adeer?) Tony Vincent sails through. Also, some saucy, leggy ladies in fake-leather shorts survived. By default, that’s a triumph for the Lgbt community. Let’s grade the grudge matches!

Sera Hill vs. Geoff McBride, “Chain of Fools

God, the battle rounds are so weird. And a little unsatisfying, frankly, since the strange tug-of-war between the two competing singers totally robs a song of its normal rhythms and intentions. Weirder yet are the contestant pairings, like the sultry, Estelle-cool Sera Hill and the howling soulman Geoff McBride, who joined forces on “Chain of Fools” for some reason. The argument on paper is the same as the one onstage: Sera has the smaller voice but brings the finger-wag choreography; Geoff has the raspy monster voice, »
