Video – The Voice Competition Highlights 12/10/2012

The Voice

The competition has narrowed and become more intense than ever on NBC’s The Voice and we have highlights from the remaining contestants right here.  Let’s have a look and comment on the Top Four and who WE think will win this cycle of The Voice.

Tonight the theme was Christmas songs, naturally, and the final four were able to preform both traditional tunes and tunes that reminded them of Christmas.  Aw.

Let me remind you that the competition has come down to Team Blake vs Team Cee Lo, with team Blake looking very good with Trevin Hunt and Nicholas David, while Team Cee Lo has a very likely winner with Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott as a back up.

Trevin Hunte: “Wind Beneath My Wings” by Bette Midler

Yipes.  Too late in the game to have those performances that start off warbley and weak and then gain power.  Trevin was painfully off key and time here.

Nicholas David: “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker

If anyone can win it for Team Blake it is Nicholas David.  Unique doesn’t begin to describe this guy, but the dude has just an organically pleasing voice that doesn’t sound like the product of hours of practice with a stern vocal coach that wears a crop in a holster.

Cassadee Pope: “Stupid Boy” by Keith Urban

I don’t care if you say Cassadee Pope is selling out her Hey Monday roots by doing The Voice, the girl deserves fame dammit … and you’re going to give it to her.   I’m a little weirded out by her taking on a country song in such a low register, but she ecks by this week in my book.

Terry McDermott: “Let It Be” by The Beatles

My problem with this is that Terry sounds too much like Paul McCartney.  It’s not an interpretation, it’s just a cover.  Terry’s homecoming segment with him surprising his son is the real winning point for Terry tonight.

So who do you think will win The Voice, and who will be going home next?  Sound off in the comments below.

    who’s going home next? definitely Trevin. it’s a shame, as he showed real promise at the beginning of the season…what the heck happened? tonight especially, he was SO off-key, i’m shocked and disappointed that the judges weren’t brutally honest with him.

    who do i think will win? well, based on her supposed huge fan base, Cassadee. yet, i so don’t think she *deserves* to win — not by a long shot. to me, her voice is nothing special and she’s incredibly boring.

    now, who do i think SHOULD win? Nicholas David, obviously. he’s the only one with genuine, raw talent, he’s quirky, interesting and likeable, and getting better looking each week. however, unfortunately, i think it will be a toss up between him and Terry as to who will also be going on the chopping block next.
