On Monday night's episode of "The Voice," Blake Shelton's contestant Cassadee Pope -- considered by many to be the fan favorite, if not exactly a critical darling -- took on two different genres of music. The former lead singer of Hey Monday was a little bit country with Rascal Flatts' "Stand," building on the success of her "Over You" performance. She also stuck with her pop-punk roots when she dipped into the Avril Lavigne catalogue for "I'm With You."
"Stand" was Shelton's choice. Though it's undeniably a country favorite, the arrangement that Pope sang ventured into pop territory. The song won Christina Aguilera over -- and without any of her own contestants, Aguilera was free to lend her support to whoever she chooses.
"I just don't mind being your co-coach supporter at this point. You won me over, Cassadee ... You're on the money ... I love what you represent, »
