The Voice aired its first AI style Results Show of the season, a night after the big Semi Final showdown aired and after nine weeks of this, Carson Daly is still a terrible, terrible host. Dude, go to a Greyhound station find a personality, would ya?
One member from each team moves to the finals as the coaches and America combine votes to determine a winner. After the show yesterday, Christina, Blake, Adam and Cee Lo each submitted a score by divvying up 100 points between their two members. America then cast votes, both numbers were given equal weight, and the person with the most points goes onto the Finals.
Yeah, one of the big issues with this show is that there is no standard way of doing things, so you have to pay attention week to week to figure out how things are working.
Team Cee Lo: Nakia vs. Vicci. Nakia thanked his man for all the sacrifices he’s made to support him on his musical endeavor. Vicci became a little misty, but held back the tears when Dullard Daly made mention that she’d be doing daddy proud by fulfilling his dream of a music career, which he gave up to do the family thing.
Cee Lo gave Nakia 51 points and Vicci 49, saying that her little drummer boys made it hard for him to hear her, thus, she was docked a point. After America’s scores are added in, it was Vicci Martinez that is headed to the finals. (For those of you keeping score, I’m 1-1. Woot!)
Team Adam: Casey vs. Javier. If you recall (time for a little more personal horn blowing) from my post yesterday, I mentioned that Adam clearly doesn’t want Casey to win, so he’ stacked the deck against her. Well, Adam admits to such when he reveals his voting by saying that Casey is 18 and has a long time to get her shit together, but Javier, well, he’s old and thus, needed to make sure his vote would push him through. I’m not sure why he didn’t just come out and say, “listen, you’re kinda hot, and yeah, you can sing too, but come on..Have you heard what this cat can do?”
Adam gave Casey a 35 and Javier a 65, and after America’s votes are added in, Javier Colon came out victorious. (I’m 2-2 here) I suppose this will result in a bit less traffic to my blog because search terms “casey westons legs” will no longer be valid. :(
Team Blake: Dia vs. Xenia. This entire portion of the show was predictable as they come.. Blake is a good ole boy, doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feeling and cops out by giving both ladies 50 each. Dude, you’re in the industry, so I know you are not tone deaf..Did you not hear Xenia’s voice crackle each week when the lights were on? Hell, not that I can blame her, but then again, I’m not trying to be The Voice either.
Luckily the rest of the planet was not as smitten with Xenia’s awkwardness and awards Dia Frampton her rightful victory. (Yeah, guess who has gone 3-3 so far?)
Team Christina: Frenchie vs. Beverly. Xtina also takes the easy way out when she proclaims that since both chicks were bald (perhaps I have a shot with Christina now, right?) she likes them equally and wanted America to decide who moves on…In giving both a 50, (note, I called for Bev here in a bit of a gamble..) America did me proud…A shocked Beverly McClellan gets a congratulatory kiss from Christina as Frenchie is sent home.
To sum it up, I went 4-4 in my predictions as we’re left with Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, Dia Frampton and Beverly McClellan in the Finals next week.
Were you surprised by the any of the outcomes? Who do you think is going to be The Voice?
