Meet the newest members of Team Blake and Team Cee Lo.
The original American Idol is set to work with Blake Shelton’s team of contestants during the upcoming season of The Voice.
Last night on The Voice, Javier Colon (Team Adam) and Vicci Martinez (Team Cee-Lo) were saved by America’s votes and moved on to the next round. Casey Weston (Team Adam) and Nakia (Team Cee-Lo) were saved by their respective coaches, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Cee-Lo.
Totally called Adam saving Casey. To each their own. I liked Casey’s performance last week, but Jeff Jenkins was pretty good, too. Actually all of Team Adam was fantastic last week. Moving on…
Frenchie Davis (Team Christina) kicked off the performances with Madonna’s “Like a Prayer.” I have to say that I’ve been unfortunately very underwhelmed by her performances on The Voice. I was hoping to get to see her really bust out some crazy notes on this show, but she seems to be holding back, which is probably why America didn’t vote her through to the semi-finals.
Nakia (Team Cee-Lo) was up next performing Adam Lambert’s “Whataya Want From Me.” I thought this was an interesting song pick for him. He really has to reel his voice in and keep it under control, or else it sounds like he’s shouting. I thought he did a good job at doing that. But, I don’t think he fully connected to the song, like Adam Lambert is when he performs it. That said, Nakia’s take on the song was alright.
I know Adam Levine said in his feedback that he had never heard the song before, which probably made for some fun @replies on Twitter, but cut the man some slack. He wasn’t rude about it, he just said he didn’t know that song existed.
Adam’s been bouncing around different countries since Maroon 5’s Hands All Over album debuted last September. He also revealed last night that he’s never heard of that song by The Script, which is what made me raise an eyebrow. I think someone needs to take Mr. Levine music shopping, and maybe turn on the radio for him in the car.
The Tonight Show welcomed another coach from The Voice this week, the one and only Blake Shelton. Check out videos from his interview below!Vodpod videos no longer available. Vodpod videos no longer available.
Last night on The Voice, Dia Frampton from Team Blake performed an absolutely gorgeous version of Kanye West’s “Heartless” on piano. Check out her performance below.
As you may know, Kris Allen made himself stand out from the pack during Top 3 night on American Idol back in season eight with his stellar acoustic rendition of “Heartless.” Check out his performance below.
In the spirit of it being Kanye West’s birthday today, I thought I would ask y’all which “Heartless” cover do you prefer and why? Vote & comment below!
