The Voice Season 6: The Top 12 Perform (Video)

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After all the blind auditions and numerous battle rounds, the live shows finally started on The Voice Season 6. It’s about time. Is it just me who felt it took especially long to get to this point this season?

Before we get to the performances, I have to say I’m a little surprised with the make up of the Top 12. Given that three women in a row have won the NBC singing competition, I thought for sure producers would manipulate things to get a male winner this year. While it’s certainly still possible, there are only four men in the dozen left competing. I have a feeling we’re in store for another female to take it home this season.

With regards to the performances, there wasn’t anyone who thoroughly impressed me and gave me goosebumps. A few, however, did stand out better than the rest. Kat Perkins, Josh Kaufman, Christina Grimmie, Bria Kelly, Kristen Merlin and Tess Boyer all performed solidly. Sisaundra Lewis also did well, but I’m just not connecting with her. I’d be surprised if any of them were eliminated this week. My predictions to be sent home packing are Dani Moz and Audra McLaughlin or Delvin Choice. Watch all the performances below and weigh in afterward if you agree with my prediction.

Girls Nuns Just Want To Have Fun

This is one of the most adorable things I’ve seen in a while. It’s the real life Sister Act. Whoopi Goldeberg and Sister Cristina Scuccia should consider teaming up for a third installment of the beloved nun film franchise. I’d go see it in a heartbeat.

The singing nun wowed The Voice Italy judges with her rendition of Alicia Keys “No One.” Her fellow sisters from the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family cheered her on during her audition. Not surprisingly, the country and online community fell in love with her instantly. She’s the cutest thing on earth.

Recently, she competed on the battle rounds where she was victorious singing Cyndi Lauper’s classic girl anthem, “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” Could Sister Cristina Scuccia be the next Susan Boyle? Watch both performances below and weigh in afterward.

Is Gwen Stefani Joining The Voice?

According to TMZ, it’s a done deal. Gwen Stefani will be replacing Christina Aguilera on the seventh season of The Voice.

Even though the network had hoped X-Tina would return, the 33-year-old singer is taking another season off due to her second pregnancy. Reportedly, X-Tina is coming back for Season 8. If Cee Lo Green remains adamant about not returning, I’m curious which other judge X-Tina will be paired with. Might I suggest another female.

Stefani’s addition shouldn’t come as a surprise. Recently she resurfaced at Coachella pulling off a surprise cameo during Pharrell Williams’ set. The two performed “Hollaback Girl” which Pharrell produced.

As you know, the “Happy” singer also joins the singing competition next season, taking over for a departing Cee Lo. Both Stefani and Williams should gel well with regular mainstays, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Will those two ever take a break?

Is Gwen a good choice to sit in those red swivel chairs? Why or why not? Sound off below.

Kylie Minogue Leaves The Voice UK

Sorry UK Lovers, Kylie Minogue is jumping ship. The diminutive singer announced she’s leaving The Voice and won’t return for Series 4. She cites the timing of her tour as the reason why. I wonder if the fact she placed last among her other mentors factored in her decision.

“#Lovers, due to timing of my tour I won’t be back next season for The Voice UK???? Thanks to all who supported! Hope to see you on my KMO tour!” - Kylie Minogue

At long last The Voice unveiled their Top 20 for Season 6 on last night’s show. After surviving the battles, the singers face instant elimination as the playoffs begin. Each judge will trim their teams from five to three during a brutal cut.

As it stands right now, Adam Levine looks to have the strongest team with Usher a close second. My early favorites include Morgan Wallen, Jake Barker, Bria Kelly, Melissa Jimenez and Stevie Jo. How about you?

In a new promo vid, the Top 20 reveal what their voices look like and their true colors. Check out the colorful clip below.

Pharrell Williams Joins The Voice As Season 7 Coach

For the past couple seasons of The Voice, the two middle red swivel chairs have been occupied by a rotating schedule of coaches with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green swapping places with Shakira and Usher. With Green announcing he wasn’t returning for Season 7, a part of me was hoping either Usher or Shakira would stay on and join Christina.

Rather than going with that option, producers have decided to bring on someone new. The Voice announced via Twitter that Pharrell Williams and his Arby’s hat are the new judge/mentor.

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” NBC wrote.

With Christina Aguilera pregnant, I wonder if she’ll also skip the next season. If she does, who should replace her? Are you excited for Pharrell to replace Cee Lo? I’m definitely intrigued. With his current Midas Touch, the 40-year-old is hotter than ever. Contestants will definitely want to be on his team. Weigh in below.

Cee Lo Green Not Returning To The Voice

Attention Voice fans, Cee Lo Green has left the building. While it’s been known for a while that Green along with Christina Aguilera are skipping Season 6 to pursue other projects, everyone naturally assumed he’d return for Season 7, like he did previously when he took a season off. The 39-year-old rapper broke the news to a surprised Ellen Degeneres on her talk show.

After being the first mentor to lose his acts last season, I can’t say I blame him for leaving the singing competition. I hope this doesn’t mean that we’ve seen the last of Christina Aguilera as well. Hopefully, she’ll return with Usher, or even better, Shakira by her side. I’d love to see two women in the red chairs simultaneously. Make it happen NBC.

If you want to get your Cee Lo fill, you can catch him on tour with Lionel Richie. Watch the two promote their upcoming shows to Ellen’s audience below, along with Green confirming his Voice departure.

Let’s face it. Without Mary Lambert’s beautiful ‘she keeps me warm’ hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” the track wouldn’t be the same. Don’t you agree? A-list celebrities think so as well. She’s often joined by big names to sing the chorus during major performances. Both Jennifer Hudson and Madonna have sung with the Seattleite during the MTV VMAs and Grammys respectively.

As it turns out, the 24-year-old singer is also making beautiful music in her personal life. Lambert was all cozy with her new girlfriend at Sunday night’s events. Keep reading to find out who keeps her warm at night.
