[Audio + Videos] Carson Daly: The Dog Days Are Over For Vicci Martinez On NBC’s ‘The Voice!’

[photogallerylink id=105782]

With only 8 contestants left competing on NBC’s The Voice, things are getting down to the wire.

And after the live results show tonight at 8pm, only 4 will be left standing!

Here at AMP Radio, our trusty morning show guru Carson Daly pulls double duty as the host of The Voice and he shares all the behind-the-scenes details that you didn’t see on TV.

So who will survive the cut? Check out all the performances from last night!

First things first.

The show got things going with the elimination round.

America voted to keep [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm] in the mix and then coaches [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cee Lo Green [/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm] chose to save [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Casey Weston[/lastfm].

With that business all taken care of, it was time to see the final 8 perform!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Frenchie Davis[/lastfm] — Like A Prayer

The one and only Frenchie kicked off the performances by taking us to church!

Obviously, she’s a tried and true professional and she proves that with every song she sings.

I wouldn’t say her performance blew me away, but I’m sure she’ll be a favorite for the finals with her strong fan base supporting her.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beverly McClellan[/lastfm] — The Thrill Is Gone

Dare I say it?

I think Beverly earned the ‘W’ for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm]’s team!

Her bluesy rendition of this [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]B.B. King[/lastfm] number was emotional, engaging and stood out among the numerous pop songs performed last night.

We really saw just how strong of a singer she really is.

America saved her last week.  Do you think she has what it takes to slide through to the finals?

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Xenia[/lastfm] — The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

Am I the only one out there who isn’t hopping aboard the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Xenia[/lastfm] train?

Don’t get me wrong, her voice is super unique and impressive for a 16-year-old, but she just doesn’t have enough sparkle to keep up with the other contenders.

We wish she would loosen up and then we’d be sold on this [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Norah Jones[/lastfm] sound-a-like!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dia Frampton[/lastfm] — Losing My Religion

When the competition first started by in April, we completely underestimated Dia.

We always knew she was talented, but we assumed she’d rank somewhere in the middle of the pack.

Boy, could we be any more wrong?

Looks like she has another hit on her hands, her [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]R.E.M.[/lastfm] cover is already charting at #54 on iTunes!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Casey Weston[/lastfm] — I Will Always Love You

Wow, is there any song more intimidating than this classic made famous by both [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dolly Parton[/lastfm] AND [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Whitney Houston[/lastfm]?

Casey approached this challenge head on and for the most part, we were digging it.

If she survives tonight’s cut, we’d love to see her go back to faster-paced songs like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]KT Tunstall[/lastfm]’s “Black Horse And The Cherry Tree.”

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm] — Fix You

Seriously, Javier can do no wrong!

He completely rocked this [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm] track from start to finish.

It’s like he’s the teacher of a master class and the others can only sit and watch him in awe.

Plus, he finally showed us what was hiding under that infamous hat of his!

Honestly, I think the coaches had to downplay their praise last night so it would still seem like a fair fight for the rest of the contenders.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia[/lastfm] — Whataya Want From Me

Coach [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm]’s song choice was totally unexpected, but [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia[/lastfm] turned out one of the most entertaining performances of the evening.

We love seeing a bit more personality from our favorite teddy bear, especially when he kicked over that piano bench!

He did [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Lambert[/lastfm] proud last night, but still made the song his own.

Do you think [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia [/lastfm]will be saved by America? Take a look!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm] — The Dog Days Are Over

Vicci came to win last night.

Everything was working for her: the voice, the drums, and her dynamo personality.

She engaged the audience and got some of the loudest cheers.

Honestly, we think Team Cee Lo has the most contentious battle on their hands with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm].

Only one of them can survive tonight’s elimination and no matter what happens, we’re going to be heartbroken either way.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Like it or not, 4 of these artists will be going home tonight.

Watch The Voice tonight at 8pm to see if your favorite singer will advance to the finals!
