After a Super Bowl premiere, months of twirling chairs and battle rounds, “The Voice” finally crowned its Season 2 winner. Between you and me, I was definitely surprised, if not shocked, by the results. But before we get to the actual results, I want to briefly discuss last night’s finale. Don’t worry, I’m not going to make you endure 110 minutes of filler like Carson Daly did last night. Instead, it’ll be two short paragraphs.

To say the results show was bloated, would be an understatement. That being said there were some moments, I actually enjoyed. You’d think all the high-wattage performances by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, Lady Antebellum and Hall & Oates would’ve stolen the show. NOT. Instead, what I enjoyed the most were the group performances by the Final 4 contestants. Each finalist invited former contestants to perform on stage with. It was interesting to see which eliminated singers Jermaine Paul, Tony Lucca, Juliet Simms and Chris Mann chose. It didn’t necessarily always fall within team lines. Personally, I loved Jermaine Paul’s group song on “I Want You Back” with Pip, James Massone & Jamar Rogers.

After Monday night’s penultimate episode, I predicted that the title would be between Juliet Simms and Chris Mann, with Tony Lucca and Jermaine Paul finishing in third and fourth. Simms wasn’t her best on Monday night, due to a cold, but I thought her stellar performances on “Roxanne” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” from previous weeks would carry her to the win. At least, that’s what I was hoping for. See if I predicted correctly.

If you caught The Voice tonight, you have caught this little suggestion that Christina Aguilera had after watching contestant Tony Lucca’s performance. Tony decided to take on a rendition of Britney’s classic “Baby One More Time“.

If you remember from previous episodes, Christina Aguilera was quick to criticize Tony calling him one-dimensional and that he had an unfair advantage with his ties to the Mickey Mouse Club. He’s even had some online endorsement from former Mouseketeer Justin Timberlake. Tonight however, Aguilera changed her tune with some different comments.

She took it in stride and invited Timberlake to join herself and Tony on stage for a full fledged Mickey Mouse Club Reunion. She also liked Tony’s darker version of the pop tune and appreciated him making it his own. In response to Christina’s comments, Tony told The Hollywood Reporter that he and coach Adam Levine have something very special planned. I can’t wait to see what that could be. Check out Tony’s performance from tonight’s show below.

You would think Matt Bomer’s upcoming guest appearance on “Glee” is like the second coming of Jesus, considering the number of posts we write about it. He does have that silky dark hair though. LOL. To be fair, it’s just not Bomer I’m excited about, but the fact we get eight straight new episodes of the Fox musical when it returns. Plus, like most of you, I’m curious to know if the writers killed of Quinn.

Up to this point, we’ve seen backstage footage of Matt Bomer and even seen one of his duets with Darren Criss. The two cover Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know“. Given that the episode is titled “Big Brother“, we simply can’t be treated to just one duet. It is Matt Bomer after all. The one I’ve been looking forward to hearing the most since I first learned about it, is the Duran Duran mashup. After hearing it, I have to say it was worth the wait. The two belt out the 80s classics “Rio” and “Hungry Like The Wolf“.

If that wasn’t enough music for you, the familial drama continues with an emotional solo by Darren Criss. His character Blaine really goes to town on Christina Aguilera’s first foray into rock music, “Fighter“. It’s definitely one of my favorite tracks ever from Xtina. Criss does a solid job on the angst-ridden track. Check out “Fighter” and the Duran Duran mashup below, before the powers-that-be take down the YouTube audio.

In an effort to drum up some interest for her home, Christina Aguilera has released pictures of her $13.5 million listed Beverly Hills mansion. Aguilera had paid $11.5 million when she bought the home from the Osbourne family back in 2008.

When you look at the pictures, you’ll think that you’re looking at pictures from the set of her “Lady Marmalade” music video. A lot of pink and it’s quite over the top. That being said, I wouldn’t expect anything less than a pop star like Christian Aguilera. Some rooms I don’t mind, but others aren’t my favorite. Although not shown in the photos below, the home also has a gym, gift-wrapping area, pool with water slide and grotto spa. I’ve linked to the page below where you can view more photos should you desire.

Now that two episodes of NBC’s reality competition have aired, I thought it was the perfect time to chime in. Since Adam has taken over the reins of recapping “American Idol“, I thought I’d tackle on “The Voice“. The show has certainly gotten off to a great start due to its plum post-Super Bowl premiere. It trounced the viewers “Glee” raked in last year after the big event. I’m curious to see if it can maintain the momentum. If it does, “American Idol” might finally lose its throne come season’s end.

While I’m loving the chemistry with the judges, I’m a little underwhelmed with the blind auditions. Perhaps it’s due to audition fatigue from watching “X Factor” and “American Idol” or maybe the swivel chair appeal has worn off. Whatever it is, I’m not as excited as I was last year. That said, there are a few standouts worth mentioning. I definitely like the fact that we’re not treated to intentionally awful singers to fill time. I’m also glad that the show has addressed the professional backgrounds of some of the contestants. Full disclosure is always appreciated in my books.

Before I get to my favorite auditions so far, can we briefly talk about Christina’s boobs. I know they’re probably natural, but have those puppies gotten bigger since last year. Or are they simply a result of Aguilera’s weight gain or an ill-fitting bra? Whatever the reason, they sure are distracting. Even Blake Shelton commented that one of the contestants was being swayed by her décolletage. Another noteworthy item are Cee Lo’s eyebrows. Man, those are some sculpted and arced masterpieces. Now that I’ve gotten those things off my chest, let’s get to the auditions.

With ‘The Voice‘ premiering right after the Super Bowl tonight, they certainly should have a kick ass commercial to lure people in – and they do! The Super Bowl commercial for The Voice has just been revealed, titled “Vocal Kombat,” featuring the judges battling it out over an incredible voice they all hear coming from somewhere inside the hotel.

Christina Aguilera is the first to make an attempt to get to the voice, but not before Blake Shelton stops ties her up and throws her across the room. Adam Levine is watching from above and makes him move on Shelton. One of them comes out on top and has to then face off with Cee-Lo Green. It’s so over the top and amazing.

When they all finally make it to the hotel room to discover who had been singing in the shower with such an amazing voice, they discover that it’s Betty White (who else!). What she says to them is hilarious. Enjoy the commercial below and be sure to tune into the series premiere tonight after the Super Bowl!

On tomorrow’s episode of Ellen, 3 of the 4 coaches from NBC’s The Voice take a seat on her red couch to discuss their upcoming second season. But, what has everyone talking is Randy Jackson’s most recent comments on the NBC talent show. If you are unfamiliar with what he said, Randy took a stab at The Voice’s first season winner, Javier Colon saying:

“The winner of The Voice, as I will remind you, was an artist that had a deal at Capitol Records for many years, a failed contract over there, so it was almost like, that show it was almost like second chance people, it wasn’t like some new artist. you know what I mean? It’s a different thing out there to me.”

Adam Levine took a second on Ellen to say how he felt about this statement. “Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that, because he, out of anybody, should know that if you’re in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances,” Adam said. “So we love and embrace that being part of the show.” He continued, “you know, God bless Randy. He was a working musician for a long time and had a lot of success and then the show Idol kind of blew him out of the water. And he is a household name now. It was an irresponsible thing to say that.” Watch Adam’s response in video form below.

The debut of season two of The Voice is just around the corner and to celebrate, the folks over at Rolling Stone have decided to feature the four coaches and team leaders on their cover. Looking sharp are Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton photographed by Mark Seliger. In the issue that hits stands on February 16, RS takes a deeper look inside the walls of the hit talent search show that is attempting to give Idol and X Factor a run for their money.

At the heart of this entertainment phenomenon is a game show with rules that Rolling Stone lays out quite clearly. Try not to wince when blind auditions trick you into picking an unsightly singer; always declare it “heartbreaking” to choose the winner of a vocal battle, no matter how easy the decision actually is; and most importantly, never, ever interrupt Christina Aguilera when she is speaking.

In the interview, Aguilera reveals that her team dukes out in a battle with an interesting song that not many would expect from the blonde bombshell. “In one of my battles, this girl and guy are doing Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box,’ and I’m not sure if people would even expect that from me…” This is true. One thing is certain, Christina holds her own in group full of men and proves that she’s not to be messed with. Who knew that four artists, all unalike in every way would come together to create such a television spectacle. “Just look at the four of us,” says Adam Levine. “It’s just so wrong and so amazing.” Check out the full Rolling Stone cover below.
