After spending Monday night singing for their lives, it was time for James Wolpert, Tessanne Chin, Jacquie Lee, Will Champlin and Cole Vosbury to learn their fate. It would be a long hour of anticipation and performances from alumni before the top five learned who would become the top three.
Kicking off “Homecoming” night (or Team Blake Night) were last season’s The Swon Brothers. Colton and Zac Swon made their way back to "The Voice" stage and performed “Later On,” a rocking country single from their upcoming album. Blake, the brother’s former coach, as well as the audience, were all excited to see the duo back on the stage.
Staying in tune with the season (literally), this week’s confessional was all about “The 12 Days of Christmas.” While the coaches and contestants belted out some of their favorite parts of the infamous Christmas carol, others were also raising the same questions we have all been wondering for years...
When Tessanne and Blake figure out exactly what a turtle dove is, let us know.
When it came down to the first order of business, it was done in a more unconventional way. Instead of starting the eliminations off with the person who would be moving on next week, it started out just the opposite.
James Wolpert learned early on in the show that he had the lowest number of votes, and that Monday night’s performance would be his last, leaving Coach Adam with only two hopefuls for the finale show.
Taking the stage then was another veteran performer from season four. Sans her coach, Usher, Michelle Chamuel introduced America to her single, “Go Down Singing,” which will soon be available on itunes for the audience listening pleasure.
The first contestant to move on to next week’s finale was Tessanne Chin, securing at least one spot in the final show for Team Adam. Shje was followed by Jacquie Lee, Team Christina’s only remaining member and the youngest person in the competition.
Team Blake continued with the “Homecoming” theme, bringing back his two previous winners. Season three’s Cassadee Pope took the stage to perform her new single, “I Wish I could Break Your Heart,” while last year’s winner, Danielle Bradbery, performed her hit, “Never Like This.”
Ending a night filled with Team Blake performances, his final contestant, Cole Vosbury, faced Team Adam’s Will Champlin. In the end, America decided to save Will, sending Cole Vosbury and his beard home.
I bet Blake was hoping for a twitter instant save at that very moment.
The finale show is looking like it will be one of the biggest vocal battles in the history of "The Voice." For the first time in three seasons, Coach Blake will be handing over his title…but will it be to Adam or Christina?
