"The Voice" is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named “The Voice” – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

“The Voice” is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.

    rooting for CHRIS MANN!!!!!

  • Mark

    Ceelo has the best team.

  • Jimmy Henderson

    Would be surprised if Tony Lucca doesn’t win. Justin Timberlake is campaigning to get him all the votes. Plus the guy is always #1 on Itunes.

  • Noelle

    Adam threw away any chance he had of winning with his elimination choices this week. Cee Lo’s team is amazing and either Juliet or Jamar will most likely win the whole thing. Personally, I like listening to Team Xtina, but I don’t think they stand a chance.

    1 Lindsey,2 Juliet, 3 Katrina, 4 Chris, 5 Erin, 6 Germaine 7 Tony 8 Jamar Listen to any of Jamars songs without the visuals and u will hear that he should not have made top 20, the others are about right. wish Ashley could still be in the mix. Jesse was good but there are literally thousands of Jesses out there. Christina had to keep the unique voices!

    We know that Chris Mann is a winner. Tony Lucca pulled it out with the last 2 songs, although Christina tried to destroy him, what a witch she has turned into. What happened to you Christina? You won it all, yes you have talent, but so many people mentored you and the comments you made to Tony were cruel. Thankfully, the microphone went off and you could not comment on Tony on Monday night. He doesn’t even look at you when he is on stage. What did he do wrong to you on the Mickey Mouse Club? Did he like Brittany and not you? He could win this contest due to his winning ways, his real talent that Adam brought out in the last 2 performances.

    Christina should not be on this show anymore if she cannot treat all the performers as well as the 3 other Judges do. A Judge encourages and can always find the good and you destroy the confidence of these performers, none more than Tony Lucca this past Season. Why? What did her do to you during your Mickey Mouse years? He certainly did not remember harming you. You, Brittany and Justin went on to become some of the biggest names in your industry. You even made a movie where you excelled with acting, singing, dancing. You were the movie.

    I do not understand you Christina. Did you peak and you do not see more in your future? Why the excess weight? Why the over the top make up, but more than that, the costumes you wear are so tight, so age inappropriate with your breasts exposed. You make me sad for you. You are so cruel in your comments, why? You don’t help by being cruel with your verbage, you hurt and destroy confidence.

    Are you unhappy Christina? Unhappy in your personal life? Why? You have access to the finest stylists, make up artists, hair stylists, nutritionists, exercise trainers. You were beautiful, but you are only 30, you have so many wonderful, exciting years ahead of you.

    Have you always been so mean Christina? Angry for your childhood? Get a therapist and get yourself together.

    When you performed with your last 4 Team Members, you wore an outfit 3 sizes much too tight and small and you made yourself the performance. Your Team Members were background singers. So sad.

    Adam played the drums, let his 4 Team Members perform. Blake did the same as Adam, sat back and let his 4 Team Members come out and do their thing. Same with Ceelo, they let their 4 Team Members do their thing.

    Christina you made the performance about you. I was truly embarrassed for you, your outfit (you are not the tiny teenager any longer, but a butt and gut and breast busting outfit on; not )to mention your hair weave, so unbelievable phony and we could see that on TV)

    I have been a fan of your and still am, that is why I am writing this. I heard you perform when you performed at my cousin’s wedding in Pittsburgh. I knew that day, you would go on to become one of the finest of our performers in the decades to come. I am your age, I have one son and I teach music in a high school in Pittsburgh and I have used you as an example with my chorale group. I have used you as an example with our theater performers.

    Please Christine, get back on track and be that 30 yr old woman who was kind to others and kind to herself. Please.

    Also Christina, when the backstory of how you practiced the Ave Maria with Chris Mann, you had to sing his part, so much higher, as a soprano can do and then Chris, being a man, cannot sing a soprano part. Why did you do that?

    When Chris performed on the Monday night show, he did not sound as good singing because we had just heard you sing Ave Maria, Chris sounded flat. Shame on you Christina, he is your Team Member, although you wanted Lindsey to win and when Chris won last night, you did not smile, you were unhappy that Lindsey did not win.

    The Lindsey, Erin, etc., are a dime a dozen, even Katrina, no big difference than what we see and hear on American Idol. This show is about the best. Lindsey will make it, she is young, she will get a record contract or you could have these girls who lost on your team travel with you in concerts. But to make a face when Chris won. Sad! This is not life or death, this is a singing, voice concert. At the beginning when you wanted Chris on your team and said after he sang the aria “now that is a voice” and you talked him into being a part of your team and you did not bond with him, but you bond with the women. Wrong way to be a Judge Christina.

    Plus did you recognize that Lindsey and Chris have formed quite a bond? Lindsey has quite the crush on Chris and vice versa, although Chris’ girlfriend is always in the stands, when backstage being spoken to by Christine, Chris’ girlfriend keeps trying to hold his hand and he is concentrating on Christine and the twittering factor. Chris will eliminate her shortly as she is a clinger, and Chris liked the women who all performed on that show. He was in love with you Christina but you were so cold to him, why?

    When he won last night, you ignored him as you ran up to that stage to hug Lindsey and he just kind of walked away, looked back at you. All we could see was your extremely tight spandex too short skirt. Get a mirror Christina………….
    and a book on how to treat people.

    You work as a coach, back behind the scenes may have worked, I don’t know, but you had good talent to begin with, they had payed their dues, payed their dues for years.
