“The Voice” Recap: Teams Adam & Cee Lo Take The Stage!
12 contestants from Team Adam Levine and Team Cee Lo Green gave it their all and with all that great talent on the stage, ultimately picking one person to be The Voice is going to be pretty darn difficult.
Even Producer Angie was in the audience last night cheering on her personal favorites.
Listen to who she and Carson think will be safe from elimination tonight:
TEAM ADAM: Tony Lucca, “In Your Eyes”
So much for staying loyal to your fellow Mouseketeer!
Christina was unimpressed with Tony, calling the performance “very one dimensional.” Ouch!
Adam shot back immediately saying, “That was honest!” He admitted the Peter Gabriel song was a huge challenge, but added that he was so proud of Tony and “so happy with the way this room felt.”
TEAM CEE LO: Juliet Simms, “Roxanne”
Juliet did what she does best…gritty, sexy rock. She earned frontrunner status with this high-energy act.
Adam Levine joked that she “pissed him off” because he wanted her so badly to join his team and said it was “the best performance [he's] seen so far.”
Ladies man Cee Lo praised his protege, “You don’t need no smoke, no mirrors, no nothing. All you need is that voice.”
TEAM ADAM: Mathai, “Ordinary People”
The adorable Mathai slowed things down with a soulful John Legend cover.
Although Christina called it “a little loungey,” she also complimented the 18-year-old’s interesting ad libs and ability to make the song her own.
Coach Adam couldn’t contain his pride, telling her, “You can do anything. You can sing anything and you have one of the most unique voices I’ve heard so far in this whole competition. And I really couldn’t possibly be happier with that moment that I just witnessed.”
TEAM CEE LO: Jamar Rogers, “Are You Gonna Go My Way”
Jamar closed out the night on a high note with a little Lenny Kravitz. He made great use of the stage and it was clear that the audience was feeding off his energy.
He even got a standing ovation from his coach! Blake Shelton seemed overwhelmed by the whole spectacle, including the stilt-wearing guitar players, but when you’re on Team Cee Lo, half the battle is coming up with an eye-catching performance that gets everybody talking!
Last week, Adam Levine declared Team Christina’s Jesse Campbell the one to beat, but Jamar doesn’t seem to be too far behind. Levine told him, “You embody what this show is, with what you just did.”
Tune in at 9pm PT tonight to find which 4 contestants get eliminated!
