Coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton


Come Together to Perform on Tuesday’s Season Finale

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – May 2, 2012 – Last night on NBC’s “The Voice” Elimination Show, Tony Lucca @luccadoes, Chris Mann @IamChrisMann, Jermaine Paul @jermainepaul and Juliet Simms @julietsimmsALL earned the right to represent their respective coaches – Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green - in the Finals of “The Voice,” Monday, May 7 (8-10 p.m., ET), culminating in the season finale on Tuesday, May 8 (9-11 p.m., ET) in a two-night event on NBC. These four artists beat out Lindsey Pavao @LindseyPavao (Team Christina), Katrina Parker @katrinapmusic (Team Adam), Jamar Rogers @JSquidward (Team CeeLo) and Erin Willett @erin_willett (Team Blake) in the Semifinal round of competition.


This Monday, it’s all or nothing for the Final Four as they offer up their best for a final chance at America’s votes. In addition to performing one song, each artist will also sing a duet with his or her coach. Then, on Tuesday’s season finale, the finalists will each collaborate with some of their fellow season two competitors who return for special performances and musical guests Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, Lady Antebellum and Daryl Hall & John Oates perform. But wait there’s more! Just as all four coaches came together to open the season with a spectacular performance, Adam, Blake, CeeLo and Christina are set to thrill audiences and viewers once more in a special group number to close out the season. Finally, by night’s end, in the moment we’ve all been waiting for, one voice will rise above all as the winner is crowned.


"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.

    Fail format
    Fail talent
    Fail over production
    Fail judges

    Will never watch the US version again. The talent is abysmal at best. Its literally a karaoke show. Idol is engaging and interesting. The Voice is sub par tv

  • Itaintrite

    “Idol is engaging and interesting.”

    Thanks for the laugh :D

  • Dennis Rayburn

    If Idol is engaging and interesting, then I am Captain Marvel!!!

    The Voice is far superior! Juliet Simms so reminds me of a singer from the past named Janis Joplin.

  • OSM

    Bizarro say “Idol is engaging and interesting.”.

  • ABC hater

    Like there’s any doubt left… go, Juliet! :)

  • Chmarin

    Please, Idol may not be must-see-TV, but don’t embarrass yourselves by saying The Voice is better.

    Subpar retarded host, mediocre talent. It’s a showcase for the four egomaniacs sitting in those chairs. Like they even give a s*** about any of the contestants. The “drama” and the “fighting” between the coaches is as fake and contrived as Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

    Yes, JLo, Steven and Randy have NO IDEA what the f*** they’re saying 90% of time (the other 10% they’re just talking nonsense), but Idol still attracts the best talent on TV. This season proves that Idol can still get an amazing group of powerhouse singers.

    The Voice’s 15 minutes are up. The shtick with the blind auditions is getting old, and the second they started airing those ridiculous battle rounds (4-5 performances in two hours, are you serious?) I stopped watching. Because then it turned into an over-produced karaoke show, just like FowlScat said.

    “Please, Idol may not be must-see-TV, but don’t embarrass yourselves by saying The Voice is better.”

    The Voice is better.

    Far, far, far better than American Idol, which is pure trash.

  • RyanCanada

    Juliet or Tony will win, but i think it will be Juliet, she blew me away this week! best preformance of the entire series.

  • Chmarin

    @Steven, it makes it hard for people to take your “opinion” seriously when you can’t even give one legitimate argument to support it.

  • FowlScat

    lol a Janice Joplin reference, thats like telling someone in 40 years if they could of only been like Amy Winehouse. You should have seen her “everyone” loved her. Well let the ratings sort it out. Enjoy your fake setup battle rounds where the producers pick the pairings and winners in advance. Compelling tv right there.

  • Ron

    Nobody other than Juliet has any shot at a career. We’ll never hear from Tony, Chris or Jermaine again. Unless a contestant is over the 28 year old age limit of Idol they are essentially an Idol reject.

  • Freyja

    I actually agree with Fowlscat on the fact the show is rigged from the beginning, they know who they want to win from the Blind Auditions. The drama from the contestants sob story background, like Jamar or Jesse who had to live in his car. Those stories are supposed to tug the hearts of the audiences so they vote for them.

    Even though I know the votes don’t count I do base my votes off talent, and the two best singers are Juliet and Chris. Both different styles vocally yet can sing and sing very damn good. Jermaine surprised me the other night, but why in the hell is Tony still there? Should have been Katrina.

    But it’s still better than Idol, that show sucks now without Simon ;)

  • Todd

    Idol has been garbage since Taylor Hicks won. That show is nothing but karaoke as you so gracefully put it. 80% of The Voice contestants have already had record deals in the past and just weren’t pushed hard by the companies that gave them the deals. American Idol people aren’t allowed to have had prior deals so they are less polished amateurs.

    The judges on The Voice have actual real sustained success.

    Name one judge on the Voice who Jennifer Lopez has outsold.

    But one last thing, Juliet Simms is terrible. She has no range and her non yelling notes are so nasally it’s distracting. I don’t care how much passion someone sings with, that doesn’t mean they are good.

    I have a lot of passion when I draw but I am not a great artist by default.
