'The Voice' Finale: Who is the Singing Competition's First Winner? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2011 12:13AM
Javier Colon & Dia Frampton, 'The Voice''American Idol' revolutionized the singing competition in America ten years ago, and its first winner, Kelly Clarkson, went on to worldwide success and fame.

This summer, 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) has arguably reinvented the concept by putting the focus on ... the voice. Will its winner go on to comparable success?

With top caliber coaches in Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera, the show was more about nurturing tomorrow's superstars than sitting distant and aloof in judgment of them. And after all was said and done it came down to 2 percent.

Cee Lo Green Joins Vicci Martinez on the 'Battlefield' on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Cee Lo Green, 'The Voice'There was a lot of singing in the performance finale of 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC), and not just from our four remaining finalists. They not only sang their solo songs, but each of them took to the stage with their coach for a duet.

Javier Colon and Adam Levine performed Michael Jackson's 'Man in the Mirror,' and while it was vocally solid they didn't really bring anything new to it.

We were surprised to be a little let down by Dia Frampton and Blake Shelton's take on Tom Petty's 'I Won't Back Down,' while we enjoyed Beverly McClellan joining Christina Aguilera for a unique spin on Aguilera's own 'Beautiful.'

'The Voice' Final Performance Show: What You Didn't See On TV

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 29th 2011 2:00AM
I haven't been shy about my love for 'The Voice' this season. I can't help it -- this show has hooked me like no other reality competition show has in a long time.

I was lucky enough to be in the audience this week for the final performance show before the winner is crowned in the first season finale (Wed., June 29, 8PM ET on NBC). Did you watch? Unbelievable, right?



There was plenty of excitement in the crowd for the final four performing original songs for the first time, and doing duets with their coaches -- not to mention the coaches' 'Under Pressure,' that booty-shaking Pitbull and Ne-Yo performance and Blake Shelton jumping up to sing alongside country star Brad Paisley (all after the jump).

But what happened on the live show when the cameras weren't on? Here, the six things you didn't see on TV -- also known as six more reasons 'The Voice' is real, raw and worthy of my adoration.

NBC's 'The Voice' Is Going On Tour

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 27th 2011 8:00PM
'The Voice' has been NBC's sleeper hit, so it comes as no surprise that they're capitalizing on the success with a big summer tour.

After final performances tomorrow night (9PM ET on NBC), the show's first season will wrap on Wednesday (8PM ET) with the second season not set to air until next spring.

'The Voice' Top 8 Finalists

So, just like 'American Idol,' 'The Voice' will be sending their best singers out on the road to keep fans invested in the series. The summer tour will feature the show's final eight contestants: Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Nakia, Xenia, Casey Weston and Frenchie Davis.

Not on the roster? The show's very high profile coaches, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, which is also not surprising. Given their per-episode salaries (Aguilera's six-figure check in particular) and their own busy music careers, it likely wouldn't make financial sense to pay them to go on tour as well.

Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, and Dia Frampton of 'The Voice' on 'Today'The first season of 'The Voice' comes to an end this week with performances by the finalists Tuesday night and the results show Wednesday. Three out of the four remaining singers appeared Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) to talk about what they've learned from their celebrity coaches and how they feel about their competition.

Dia Frampton said she's learned a lot from watching Blake Shelton perform for an audience. "I think the best time I ever had with him is when he took us to a show in Ohio and I was kind of watching him perform," she said. Vicci Martinez has had a good time just being around Cee Lo Green. "He's a riot," she said. "You never know what you're going to get from him."

The Voice - Tuesday June 28, 9PM ET, CTV/NBC

The show ends this week, with the final four singing tonight and results tomorrow. I've enjoyed what I've seen of the show, though I admit I wasn't devoted to it. Most of my pleasure has come from watching Adam Levine try to be Simon Cowell, and wondering what Xtina is going to wear next. We get it, sweetie, you have a small waist and big chest.

Cee Lo Green Takes Us to 'Bright Lights, Bigger City' on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 23rd 2011 12:26AM
Cee Lo Green, 'The Voice'If there is a male counterpart to Lady Gaga's stage presence in this era of pop music, it has to be Cee Lo Green. He brought his singular style to the first ever results show for 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) on his song 'Bright Lights, Bigger City.'

Once again, he donned a fun wig to bring a bit of Broadway style to the production, and proved that he's not just someone telling the contestants what to do, but a genuine talent in his own right. 'The Voice' seems to be determined to remind us each week that these Coaches are brilliant voices as well as mentors, and we think it's a great idea.

It lends credence to their coaching of the contestants, and it allows us the guarantee of professional-level entertainment even if the contestants don't deliver. Luckily, that has hardly been a problem in this inaugural season as the show has more than lived up to its name thus far.

Contestants on 'Today's Voice' Pay Tribute to Guest Judge Liza Minnelli (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 22nd 2011 1:20PM
Today's Voice competition on 'Today'It's not often that reality show contestants kiss up celebrity judges in three-part harmony, but it happened Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). It was the final elimination round on 'Today's Voice,' a singing competition inspired by the hit show 'The Voice,' and Liza Minnelli returned once again a guest judge.

There were three contestants left, singing 'New York, New York,' which Minnelli sang in Martin Scorsese's 1977 film of the same name. They used the original closing lines, but added a lyrical twist: "If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere/Come on come through, New York/This song was made famous by Liza Minnelli."

That made Minnelli so happy, she burst into song herself, making a little coda of "My little town blues." They may have missed out on any competitive edge resulting from the flattery, though: No one has an advantage if they all do it.

Vicci Martinez Brings Down the House on 'The Voice' Semi-Finals (VIDEO)

Vicci Martinez, 'The Voice''The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC) continued blazing toward its finale next week at a breakneck pace. This week, we got the final four members of our Elite Eight, and got to hear them sing. Tomorrow, another hatchet job will send four of them home, leaving each Coach with only one contender for the finale.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Before the Top 8 could sing, though, we needed to know who they were. And that meant getting the results of last week's battle between Teams Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. As with the prior week, America's vote would save one contestant, while the Coach would save the other.

'The Voice' Predictions: Who Will Be Eliminated From Team Cee Lo & Team Adam Tonight?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 21st 2011 3:00PM
Tonight on 'The Voice,' we'll say goodbye to four more contestants, two from Team Cee Lo and two from Team Adam. But who will it be?

Their live performances last week showed off some strengths on each team, and a few weaknesses. Cee Lo Green's eclectic team -- Vicci Martinez, Nakia, Curtis Grimes and Tori and Taylor Thompson -- gave it their best and performed a funky rendition of 'Everyday People' with their wigged-out coach.

Team Adam on 'The Voice'

We also saw Adam Levine's team -- down to Jeff Jenkins, Javier Colon, Devon Barley and Casey Weston -- hold their own before coming together to perform 'With A Little Help From My Friends' with a little help from their Maroon 5 frontman coach.

I know who I think should be safe, but after some surprises last week, I'm still not sure how the eliminations will play out.

Adam Levine, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Adam Levine cares about issues that matter, so much so that he was willing to strip down naked to help promote cancer awareness. Only now he was forced to face the image he created for an uncomfortable amount of time on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

"I look exactly like this with my clothes off," Jimmy Kimmel said, among other things as he kept a close-up on the image for several, several seconds.

"Can you not show that for that long?" Levine asked him. "It's really kind of disturbing." Levine went on to describe the image as "the reverse Janet Jackson."
