Our AMP Radio focus groups tell us that people want Carson Daly to stop talking about The Voice, but between working for AMP Radio, the TODAY show, and the prime-time singing competition, he doesn’t have time for anything else!
“I can’t help it,” he explained. “It consumes my life!”
With that said, Carson decided to spice up his usual recap with some juicy behind-the-scenes details.
Tuesday’s show featured another heartbreaking elimination, some holiday-themed performances, and momma-to-be Kelly Clarkson!
The former American Idol was sporting the beginnings of a baby bump and it turns out, a wicked case of morning sickness.
“I saw Kelly Clarkson backstage. I said, ‘Hi, Kelly,’ and she’s like family around there and she’s pregnant and I said, ‘How are you feeling?’ She goes, ‘Carson, I vomit, I kid you not, 12-20 times a day!’ Her morning sickness is terrible.”
Despite throwing up before and after her rehearsal, Clarkson pulled it together to open up Monday night’s show with a performance of her new Christmas classic, “Underneath The Tree.”
“Can I also just mention how we were all geeking out when Extreme was there doing ‘More Than Words’?” Carson reminisced. “That was nostalgic! We know every word to that song.”
The warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia quickly faded away once it came time to announce the bottom two vote-getters.
Team Adam’s James Wolpert and Team Christina’s Matthew Schuler were this week’s unlucky contenders.
After five minutes of furious tweeting, Carson revealed the results.
“We found out right after that it was like less than 1% of the vote that [Wolpert] beat him by. It was literally like a handful of tweets,” Carson revealed.
“I had no problem with the Twitter save until last night!” Producer Angie admitted. “I’m one of those people because I wanted Matthew to stay. I really thought he would.”
Carson is a huge fan of both James and Matthew, but even he had to admit he was bummed out by Team Adam’s total domination.
“I didn’t want Adam to have all three because I want it to be a fair fight at the end, but how can you complain? He’s got three great singers.”
Yesterday was the last time the Instant Save played a factor in the voting results. Now, it’s up to your phone calls, text messages, and iTunes downloads to decide who will sail on through to the finale.
Don’t forget to watch the semifinals next Monday night at 8pm PT on NBC!
