The other? Tessanne Chin wins it all.
Rolling Stone's Complete Coverage of 'The Voice'
The only thing that's probably a lock at this point: The winner won't be Will Champlin. (Sorry, buddy.) Double-header coach Adam Levine had to pick someone to throw under the bus, and he went all in on Chin.

The Voice kicked off its two-night finale Dec. 16 with two hours of killer performances from the finalists – Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee – as well as a few special guests! Though Will put on a good show, it quickly became a showdown between the two remaining ladies, and HollywoodLife.com is declaring Tessanne the winner.
Jacquie Lee Triumphs With ‘Back To Black’
The night began with Tessanne doing coach Adam Levine proud. Her performance of Pink‘s ”Try” was a little low-energy, but she sang it well; and for what it’s worth, it was the same song she used during the blind auditions. All in all, it was a nice reminder of just how much the three finalists have been through. »

The Voice finalists Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee from teams Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera each sang three songs for the final performances last night before one is named the winner tonight.

Team Cee Lo: Jonny Gray vs. Shawn Smith
Cee Lo put Jonny Gray, 29, up against Shawn Smith, 32, with Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers‘ “Refugee.” It was the perfect song choice since both men served in the military — the Airforce and the Army, respectively. In rehearsal, Cee Lo asked »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt took on all comers in an epic Lip Sync Battle against Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Merchant of HBO’s “Hello Ladies.” Merchant, the challenger, kicked the “Late Night” contest off with an angry DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince rendition, which Fallon countered with “Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League. Gordon-Levitt’s answer? An extraordinarily energetic and dramatic “Tiny Dancer” by Sir Elton John. See video: Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake Go ‘#Hashtag’ Happy; Questlove: ‘Shut the F— Up’ In round two, the gawky Englishman performed “Single Ladies” sans microphone, complete with Beyonce’s signature moves from the video. »

Last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon took an unexpected turn when writer/comedian/actor Stephen Merchant showed up with a little game he invented with his pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. It’s simple, really: Each person gets the opportunity to lip-synch two songs of choice, and whoever does the best job of lip-synching — which, Ashlee Simpson can attest, isn’t easy — wins!
But this was a three-way battle between Merchant, Fallon, and this week’s EW cover star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

No one battle raps anymore, these days it's all about the lip-sync showdown. Don't believe that? Well then, just ask Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Stephen Merchant, who went head to head on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
The two were joined by host Jimmy Fallon for the battle, which saw each lip-syncing songs. Bonus points go to Merchant, who busted out a great rendition of "Boom! Shake the Room," by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Will Smith. Fallon showed off his smooth dance moves for "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League. It was Levitt who won the first round though, by getting really into lip-syncing Elton John's "Tiny Dancer."
In round two, Merchant ditched the microphone as he danced around the stage to Beyonce's "Single Ladies," even throwing a twerk into the mix. Jimmy kept his 80s streak going with a very jumpy version of "Take On Me" by A-ha. »
What can't Joseph Gordon-Levitt do?
The actor-slash-everything-else appeared on last night's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and showed off his mad lip-syncing skills to two classics: Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" and Nicki Minaj's super-catchy "Super Bass."
For "Tiny Dancer," Gordon-Levitt pulled off some mad mic skills, making it clear that it wasn't his first time at the song-and-dance rodeo. When it came time for "Super Bass," the "Don Jon" star dropped the mic and (dare we say?) twerked -- although, it's hard to say if he's attempting to twerk or just dropping it like it's hot... or something. Whatever it is, it's impressive.

Back in May, Jimmy Fallon engaged in an epic lip-synching battle with John Krasinski and we were all winners. Well, Fallon once again found himself in a lip-synch-off last night, but this time against Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While Merchant busts out his best "Beyoncé Z" and Fallon does the eighties justice, we'd have to give the edge to Jgl's "Tiny Dancer" and Nicki Minaj. Seriously, Jgl is almost too good at it. »

London, Sept 4: Sir Elton John has expressed concern that he is "too old" to care if his children get drunk in their teens.
The 66-year-old singer, who has two kids with his partner David Furnish, admitted that though it was the couple's best decision ever to have kids, he wishes that it would have been better if they had done it 20 years ago, the Mirror reported.
The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker said that he was no "spring chicken" and he understands the criticisms he receives for having his children at a late age, but he doesn't care about it as he loves them a lot.
John also revealed that he and Furnish hardly. »

Misheard song lyrics are the stuff of legend, with Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" being a canonical example of what happens when inflection doesn't go as planned (no, it's not "hold me closer, Tony Danza"). Spotify tried to lend a touch of science to our collective inability to hear certain lines as musicians intended them, and conducted a poll to identify the most misquoted song lyrics of all time.
Coming in at No. 1 on the list is Manfred Mann's Earth Band, who's "Blinded By the Light" is often mistaken as including the line "wrapped up like a douche when you're rollin' in the night." The actual line? "Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night."
Take a look at the Spotify's Top 10 Misquoted Song Lyrics below and stream a playlist of the mistakenly catchy tracks. What lyrics do you struggle with the most?
1. Blinded by the light. »

By Erin Whitney It's difficult to imagine the muscle-bulging, Bane-masked Tom Hardy wailing "Tiny Dancer" on the piano while adorned with feathers and sequins. However, according to HitFix Hardy is being considered to portray Sir Elton John in the musical fantasy biopic "Rocketman." Currently in development with first-time director Michael Gracey and "Billy Elliot" screenwriter Lee Hall, HitFix reports that music figures Bernie Taupin and John Reid have also been tied to “Rocketman” for supporting roles. The film has been described by Steve Hamilton Shaw of John's Rocket Pictures as "a radically different type of biopic." If "radically different" means a completely unexpected, hyper-masculine lead, then we're in for a whole new Elton experience. Yet, we've already heard a bit of Hardy's singing and even rapping in online videos, so maybe he won't be such a bad fit. [via HitFix h/t Vulture] »

John and his husband David Furnish sat down for an exclusive interview with Extra's Terri Seymour, and the "Tiny Dancer" singer explained that he and Madonna coincidentally ran into each other at a restaurant in France in the summertime.
"She came in, and I sent over a note," said John. "She was very gracious. I apologized profusely because what I said should never have appeared in public. She accepted our apology, and then we bought her dinner. That's over and done with. She was really great about it."
Furnish added, "We don't believe in putting negativity out in the world, both of us were embarrassed when all that stuff came out. But you've got to put all that behind you and just go forward with the positivity. »
