“We tried not to overthink it,” says the man who would eventually become the Season 3 runner-up. “We just tried to be faithful to my artistry and to the people who were supporting me through the show. I didn’t want to have them all excited about classic rock of the ’70s and ’80s, and then suddenly change it up so much that I disappointed them.”

One of them will be crowned "The Voice" on tonight's season finale.During Monday's final performances, Cassadee killed her rendition of "Cry," Nicholas had some fun with "Great Balls of Fire" and Terry and judge Blake Shelton's duet of "Dude Looks Like a Lady" was definitely entertaining.So, who do we think will win?Cassadee Pope seems like the obvious choice -- she’s been in the lead in iTunes chart sales throughout the competition. The pretty brunette has support from musicians like Pete Wentz and the group All-Time Low, and an (already) huge fan base from her rock group Hey Monday.

Last night was the last opportunity for final three on Season Three of The Voice to sing their way into America's heart, and they each went at it from a different angle. They were showcased with one song for voting consideration, one duet with their respective coaches and a reprise of the song that was considered their "breakthrough." While both Terry McDermott and Nicholas David made valiant efforts, only Cassadee Pope's performance of Faith Hill's "Cry," seemed to be finals-grade. Pope went for what she knows works: grandiose country-pop balladry, »
The Voice's final live performances opened last night with a group rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," in somber tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Connecticut.
On a candlelit stage, all the contestants joined Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera in holding name cards of the victims and their ages, leaving not a dry eye in the house.
We have no way of knowing how close the voting has been since the live shows began, but the three clearly have diverging fan bases and musical styles. It's all going to come down to whose fans vote.
First up last night was Nicholas David with a fiery medley of »

Welcome to The Voice‘s Season 3 finale: Rated Eh…for Excessive Hyperbole!
Shudder as Carson Daly introduces contestant Terry McDermott’s reprise of a Foreigner track by calling it “the song that defined him as a true rock star.” (Wait, I thought he was still a contestant on a reality singing competition!)
Let out an audible “huh?” as Cee Lo Green declares he didn’t know voices like Nicholas David’s even existed anymore — at least until the “spiritual Minnesota soul man” showed up at the Blind Auditions. (Come to think of it, I think PBS may have run a »

Character actor best known for his role in The Italian Job
The distinctive character actor John Clive, who has died aged 79, will be best remembered by cinemagoers for his appearances in a string of films that gained cult status. In The Italian Job (1969), the British-flag-flying yarn about a daring heist in Turin using Minis as getaway cars, Clive was the garage manager gleefully receiving a wad of banknotes from the released convict Michael Caine as payment for storing his Aston Martin DB4 convertible. The scene was said to have been ad-libbed between the two actors, with Caine putting his enforced absence down to tiger shoots in India. "You must have shot an awful lot of tigers, sir," said Clive as he counted the notes enthusiastically. "Yes, I used a machine gun," retorted Caine.
Two years later, Clive was the tormentor forcing Malcolm McDowell's psychotic teenager into licking his boot »
