'The Voice' Recap: Votes and Victories
Ashley De La Rosa and RaeLynn are sent packing from the quarterfinals
The results show began with Christina Aguilera basically having to answer for dumping Jesse Campbell the night before. "I'm no stranger to controversy," the fighter declared, acknowledging message boards, Twitter, and the like. "I do have a strategy."
And after a pointless "Team Blake" performance (if you can call it that) with UK band The Wanted, we got to the results. Christina's crew was up first and, curiously (at least for me), Chris Mann gets to get all Groban for another week. Jermaine Paul was the victor -- according to America -- in the Shelton fold.
Thus, the "pick me" performances began, first with Ashley De La Rosa nervously rocking Gaga's "You and I." Then Lindsay Pavao delivered an emotional "Please Don't Go," getting teary-eyed in the end, and taking Xtina with her. Someday a producer will write the words "basket case" on a Post-It when Pavao is cutting a record in his studio. But, hey, it worked. Christina saved her.
Erin Willett kicked the Adele to the curb for a rousing "Proud Mary" by the time the dust settled and the Bieber fever subsided (he popped out to debut a clip of new video for his latest single "Boyfriend"). Then it was RaeLynn with the Band Perry's "If I Die Young," a bit too safe, if you ask me -- and I'm a RaeLynn fan. So is Blake. But, as the credits rolled and RaeLynn banged into Willett and looked as if she'd seen a ghost, it became abundantly clear ... neither of us just so happened to be tonight.
What did you think of this episode? Tell us on Facebook"The Voice" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Oooooohhhh I got it the perfect gig for Christina next year instead of her being a judge on "The Voice" she can be a judge or a contestant on "Ru Paul's Drag Race" and if they don't want her then she can be the new spokeswoman star for "Park's Pork Sausages" Moooom more pork sausages pleeeassseee
Based on the actual performances and not some preconceived idea of who "should" win, I think that both Blake and Xtina got it right. The better singers (tears and all) were chosen.
But please, please...someone tell Xtina that she´s no longer a size 0, 2, 4, 6 or even an 8. I want to like her, but it´s hard when I´m too busy laughing at her squeezed inside of an outfit that would make a hooker proud. She´s too fat for her choices. Doesn´t she have a mirror? And that pancake makeup...blech. She´s not an ugly woman, far from it, but she´s doing everything she can to make sure she´s the laughingstock of the show.
I think RaeLynn got robbed because it looked like Blake may have been afraid to pick her because he really wanted to but there may have been inside pressures from the show to not show the "favoritism" towards his "country cutie" and also to not discriminate against the "larger" one next to her.
Not to worry because we all know which of those 2 will have the sky rocket career.
RaeLynn will be touring with Miranda and Blake and signed by their record label.
The other one will simply disappear.
I am totally done with "The Voice" bottomline Christine is a hypocrite first when she was picking her team all she kept yelling and saying how hard she was going to work for her team members...how? when she got rid of all her chances to win this year (anthony, jessie, Ashley)....she really believe (Opera) Chris or (Tone Deaf) Lindsay can win this...NOT...i dont think so. Blake made a good choice sending (Country Crock) RayeLynn home finally. RayeLynn is adorable but she's not "The Voice" material maybe America Idols is more her speed. Even Adam and Cee-Lo didn't agree with Christina's choices but still supported her decisions well do they support the horrible "Stank" outfits she wears....maybe all the sillicone implants and injections is leaking into her brains cause I truly don't see her plan to win will work but she really need to tone her look down and go in a corner on a timeout to revamp her look, image, & attitude. There's a difference in being sexy and being trashy, there's a difference in being stupid and dum, and there's a difference in being real and fake. Bottomline this is a primetime TV show and children and senior citizens watches this show too and I'm pretty sure the men viewer don't mind looking at her and don't have a problem with her outfits but the rest of us do. Well "The Voice" should let America have a instant elimination for the judges to vote (Fake Barbie) Christina replaced for next year show.
People that make such negative comments on here about the coaches crack me up. Like any of you have more talent or experience in the music industry than Blake or Christina. And really, people, to talk such smack about Christina and her look. Really? You people sitting at your computers, hidden from the world. Nobody knowing WHAT you look like. Be real.
If you don't like the choices they made, maybe you should have voted more for your fav's. I will admit I was surprised by their decisions, but I will say if you didn't vote to save Jesse, you can blame yourselves. He has a great voice and talent, but he played it safe and nobody voted for him. Get over it. Stop the hateful comments, it's a t.v.show
Ok you all want a show that is purely "The Voice"?
Simple then dont allow the judges to EVER TURN AROUND and when they chose the voice to move on they can only coach by PHONE.
Then in the end when they see some hippo or freak as the overall winner and gasp to themselves "who the hell wants to see that on stage"?
Well "ITS ALL ABOUT THE VOICE" right?
I gotta say I think it was a wise choice. I thought Jesse was good but kinda boring. Just my opinion.
I do want to say to the Christina hater this. Shut up!
There is a reason she dresses the way she does. She's an ENTERTAINER for crying out loud. It's her schtick to look the part of overdone! She's a stage performer. How very boring would she be if she toned down her style! She has a big personality with big crazy style. Leave the girl next door stuff to Taylor Swift!!
