Who's in 'The Voice' finals?
Posted December 11, 2012
Who still has a shot at becoming The Voice?
At the top of Tuesday's live results show, it was down to Team Blake Shelton's Scottish rocker Terry McDermott and rock/pop/country princess Cassadee Pope; and Team CeeLo Green's soul man Nicholas David and R&B crooner Trevin Hunte.
In a one-hour show, only one was sent home. Of course, between finalists and Voice alumni, there were plenty of performances to fill the time.
Terry and Cassadee opened the show with a duet, Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men. Terry got to show off his brogue and Cassadee her vibrato.
Season 2 finalist Juliet Simms of Team CeeLo premiered her single Wild Child. She was back with black hair, a black cape and her Janis Joplin-esque voice. Apparently she's "livin' it up," according to her song lyrics.
In a segment from host Carson Daly's show Last Call, the final four talked about their early experiences with music. Nicholas said he turned out the lights and wouldn't let his mom watch him sing at first. "It's like an early version of The Voice," joked Carson. Why does Trevin want to win? "I want to have a voice for those who don't have a voice," he said.
Then it was time for the first (surprising) round of callbacks. First through: Team Blake's Terry.
Season 2 spitfire RaeLynn debuted her new country single I Want Your Boyfriend. Coach Blake, whom she's been touring with, was supportive, wearing RaeLynn's signature oversized flower in his hair.
In this week's pretaped Voice confessional, the finalists and hosts talked about who would survive on a desert island. Consensus: Blake, though Terry would have no problem talking to himself for a while.
Another Season 2 finalist took the stage. This time it was opera singer Chris Mann of Team Christina singing his song Roads from his album of the same name. Fun fact: He also has a Christmas album out!
In the second round of callbacks, Team Blake's Cassadee made it, meaning only Team CeeLo's artists remained.
Season 2 finalist Tony Lucca had some face time with Christina Milian, representing Adam Levine's team. (Adam was looking very dapper, by the way!) Tony didn't, however, debut a song.
Next, it was time for CeeLo's finalists to duet. Trevin and Nicholas sang Mariah Carey's Hero. The song was clearly in balladeer Trevin's wheelhouse, but Nicholas had to sing most of the song way down low.
Finally, it was time to reveal the final singer to go into the finale. Coach CeeLo said, "I will be with the both of you from this day forth, so may the best man win."
The last finalist: Team CeeLo's Nicholas. Trevin was sent packing, but Nicholas, Cassadee and Terry will perform next Monday (8 ET/PT, NBC) for the win.
