The Voice: The Remaining Six PerformBy: Mike Tuttle - December 3, 2013
“Oh em gee!”
On Monday night, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Cee Lo Green sat in their oversized judges seats and offered their opinions to the six remaining participants on The Voice.
According to ABC News, the singers each performed two songs: a coach’s pick and a special dedication they chose themselves.
Tessanne Chin was one of three Team Adam artists to take the stage. She dedicated a rendition of Katy Perry’s new single, “Unconditionally,” to her mother and father. Blake called her a “world-class vocalist.”
Adam’s other performers included Will Champlin, who performed “A Change Is Gonna Come,” and dedicated the song his wife and their baby daughter, and James Wolpert, putting a folksy spin on The White Stripes’ “Fell in Love with a Girl,” which he dedicated to his father.
Cee Lo suggested that Will was “overly ambitious” at times while Adam praised his grit on the stage. James was also praised by Adam in the fact that his song was simple and different, even if he did mess up mid-song.
Jacquie Lee, of Team Christina, won brownie points with her coach by singing Christina’s “The Voice Within.” Christina said she appreciated that she took on such a big song and added that Jacquie has only scratched the surface of her talents.
Matthew Schuler, also of Team Christina, dedicated One Direction’s “Story of My Life,” to his family. His coach approved of the choice and said the “modulation” made it seem as if the heavens had opened up.
However, Adam Levine was not familiar with the chosen song, causing Blake Shelton to yell out, “One Direction! Oh em gee!”
“He didn’t know Nirvana, but he knew One Direction,” Christina Aguilera said of the country-based star.
NBC News reported that Christina and Adam also teased Blake when they asked how his his Thanksgiving went.
“Are you trying to say I gained some weight?” the CMA award-winner asked. “I gained some weight! Are you happy now?”
Christina revealed that she sent out an e-mail suggesting a Thanksgiving basketball among the coaches but Blake said he was busy.
“His response was, ‘I’m pooping,'” Christina said.
Blake’s solo teamster, Cole Vosbury, chose James Morrison’s “Better Man” with his first love in mind, though he’s no longer involved with her.
“If you don’t get her back now, something’s wrong,” Blake joked.
Cee Lo does not have any artists left in the competition.
Two of the six artists will be eliminated on the results show Tuesday night. It will air on NBC at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
