We will narrow the field to 12 tonight. I missed last night, but caught a couple of clips. I’m hoping my faves make it through. They include Amanda Brown, Cody “Bam Bam” Belew, and my Chicago Urkel girl De’borah. Who do you want to advance? Apparently Sylvia rocked last night. Did Xtina make the right choice of her over Joslyn? I think so. Sorry Adam!

Here we go! Cee-lo and Christina color coordinated. Maroon 5 and Jermain Paul (last year’s winner) will be performing.

I have to say, red glitter lipstick looks good on Christina. Blake is bragging about his team, saying they set the bar. Adam makes a joke about Blake knowing a lot about bars. Team Adam and Team Blake are performing “Stronger.” I hope Kelly Clarkson gets some royalties. This is almost as cheesy as the pointy pose numbers on Idol. The Voice has been doing their homework.

Team Adam’s fate is up now. The two artists with the most votes will stay. We get a recap. America chooses Amanda! Woot. Not a shocker there. Brian Keith also got America’s vote. Can he lose that hat? Adam can save one person: Loren, Joselyn or Melanie. Adam chooses Melanie. Joselyn gives a pageant speech. Loren has bitch face.

Team Adam: Amanda, Brian and Melanie.

Christina Milan is screeching again. Jermaine Paul is still tall. His album comes out in Dec.

Maroon 5 is performing. They are all dressed in blue. I think the song is “Daylight.” Lots of flashing “M’s”

Jermain Paul is up now performing his first single, “I believe in This Life.” He has dancers. The Voice is giving him a nice pimp here.

Team Blake results. America saves Terry! Yay. We’re not so dumb after all. Next saved is Cassdadee. Maybe we are. Who will Blake save? He picks Michaela! Not shocked by that either. Liz and Julio are clearly fodder.

Team Blake: Terry, Cassadee, and Michaela.

Team Christina and Team Cee-lo sing “Drive By.” Oh how I love me some Bam Bam. Actually, lots of these kids on these teams are decent. This is better than the first group number. Fun. Pointy pose!

Team Christina recap. Not as certain what America will do. America saves Dez. Sigh. Okay. Sylvia. I’m good with that. Christina, for all that is holy, save De’Borah. Dang. She chooses Adrianna.

Team Christina: Dez, Sylvia and Adrianna.

Cee-lo’s team is up now. I have no clue! All guys. Trevin Hunt! I’m down with that. He can sing. Nicholas is also voted safe by America. Please Cee-lo. Pick Cody. Cee-lo is babbling about community. He picks Cody! Whew. Thank you Cee-lo. :-)

Team Cee-lo: Trevin, Nicholas and Bam Bam!

What did y’all think? Did the judges make the right decisions? What about America? We have our top 12!

    I just want to say how nice it is that the judges are staying out of the group singing this season. This show has made a somewhat decent effort in focusing a bit more on the contestants….but only a bit.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    I like that the coaches don’t walk down to their seats from the stage like they do on Idol.  

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I think overall this season is MUCH more focused on the contestants than last season. The problem is, they had much more contestants too, so it took the same time to know who’s who. LOL

  • Valentin432

    Of course the only guy makes it through with the votes, Deja vu.

  • verov

    Are those not voted through singing for their coaches’ save like they did last year?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I thought they’d have to sing to be saved.

  • chillj

    Christina looks terrific tonight.

  • Jordana33

    I would have been surprised if anyone other than those three had made it through on Adam’s team. 

  • verov

    Amanda is the ONLY decent one on Adam’s team, I think – *someone* else had to get voted through, but ITA, was always likely to be the guy (and if one of the other girls had been voted through, Adam would have saved him anyway.)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Actually, the rest of the team but Amanda wasn’t better than Bryan, so at least this time was fair, differently from many others. lol

  • chillj

    What a horrible song for Germaine.

  • Jordana33

    Yay! Terry!

  • Jordana33

    I really hope Blake saves Michaela, but I’m worried he’s going to pick Liz. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    LOL. Poor Jermaine. Terrible performance too. The dancers around him look beyond weird.

  • verov

     True, although the rest are soooo bland (with the exception of Melanie’s Whisper, who is annoying) that I can barely remember anything about any of them anyway.

  • Valentin432

    We got a 2 for 2 on white males rocker types so far,  If there are any other WGWG type in the competition bet on them going through.

  • http://twitter.com/tukicarreno Tuki

    I am so happy for Terry! Yay.
    Now if Cody moves on I am a happy camper.

  • Jordana33

    So far, no big surprises. I think Cee Lo’s team will be the hardest to predict (and the one I’m most worried about!)

  • Valentin432

    LOL, this is getting so awesomely ridiculous.

  • Jordana33

    I really don’t like team Xtina. If she doesn’t pick De’borah I’ll be pissed.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Adriana, REALLY? She sckd since day one. At least Sylvia redeemed herself pretty well yesterday.

  • Jordana33

    Christina you suck. First Aquile, now De’borah. 

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Oh Christina! Come on, already one of your mini-me’s (and the right one, I’ll add) have gone through, can’t you diversify your group by saving someone unique as D’borah? Adriana was hardly any good. I mean neither was D’borah last night, but at least she offers something new. 

  • Jordana33

    I’m not even sure Sylvia deserved the spot, seeing that her three other performances without a piano sucked.  Overall, De’borah’s performances have been the best on her team.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/RECDFG624DO7FWRCCST25Y62PU Linda Brand

    Now I hope Christina loses again this season; karma for not picking De’borah.

  • Jordana33

    Can’t someone on team Cee Lo replace anyone on team X tina?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    It was unfortunate D’Bo vocally was off last night; I’m gonna miss watching her.  I have to agree out of the remaining 3 that was not popular voted in by the audience, Adrianna had the best vocal performance last night.

  • Nasstopher

    Nicholas was saved by the public? LOL. 

  • lovetheusa1776

    Cee-Lo – my top three, too.  All terrific voices.

    The biggest shocker to me; Americans picked up the phone for the best vocal performances including NICHOLAS!!! BRAVO!!!  The best save of the night is my BAM BAM Cody <3

  • verov

    Xtina, seriously? De’borah was the only one of the team with any personality.
    Dez- yawn, no surprise there (bet that’s why she got rid of Aquile early – don’t want to risk splitting the vote between pretty boys).
    Sylvia – she was the only one of the Xtina-lites I could tell apart from all the others (and did well last outing). Apparently the voters thought the same.

  • Valentin432

    Even the reactions are the same year after year, girls are guilty to be all the same (lol), we like the pretty boys,

    I’m not sure this is worth it.

  • bahogbugan_simj

    so happy right now for almost all of the choices.  the only stinkers really are from Christina’s team (i don’t hate Melanie much as everyone else here)

    now please for the love of gawd, give your artists some better songs!

    I think you can redeem yourself at any time.  Sylvia deserved that votes. But I think she should have chsoen De’borah because she was the bette rof the bottom 3. I’m sure she ranked in third place.

  • verov

    Wow. Yay. Woo hoo. Did not expect Nicholas AND Bam-Bam to go through with Trevin (figured McKenzie would get the ‘popular’ vote – WGWG after all – and Cee Lo would have to save either Nicholas or Bam-Bam.)

  • http://twitter.com/Loretta31 Loretta

    Melanie is myfav.  Sad to see  De’borah go.

    The rest are as I thought/hoped.

  • Nedsdag

    I know De’Borah has a fan base, but her singing/stomping/tantrum throwing performance left me cold. I don’t blame Christina for not taking her. She can’t go by past performances.

    When Cee Lo said he was choosing the one who was the “most improved,” I was sure he was going to pick Mackenzie. I’m glad he didn’t. By the way Cee Lo, my mother called. She wants her house coat back.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NDYOWBIIPZU6PBRHGOPT2ZZJXQ sweetmm

    You confusing the WGWG; that is AI’s signature ;)

  • Jordana33

    I think Adam, Blake and Cee Lo made the right choices (although I’m sad about Mackenzie). However, another epic fail for Xtina. Suddenly I’m looking forward to Shakira. 

  • chillj

    Dez?  Really?

  • verov

    Agreed – as uninspiring as I find them, I’d rather have seen Diego and McKenzie continue than anyone left on Adam’s, Xtina’s and Blake’s teams except Amanda, Terry, Michaela and Sylvia.

  • Jordana33

    Well, on a positive note…I’m really impressed with America for voting for Nicholas. Also, the Drive By group number was awesome!

  • chillj

    There were a few pretty female singers tonight I just couldn’t separate out from each other.  I figured if they weren’t that memorable to me, they wouldn’t be to the judges, either.

  • Amber Alk

    Loved Ceelos picks
    Only liked Sylvia-team Xtina
    Liked Michaela and Terry-team Blake
    Liked Brian and Amanda-team Adam

     

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    I think it’s pretty good top12. I just wanted a little bit of Julio just for the lulz. Will Cassadee take it all with her huge fanbase? is it enought to win The Voice?

  • http://twitter.com/jepriy Jepoy Ramos

    Ugghhh Xtina… why adrianna??? should’ve been De’borah. Ughhhh

    That’s my only complaint for the night

    Everyone else deserved their place (even Melanie who has been selling well on iTunes)

  • http://twitter.com/tukicarreno Tuki

    I ams o relived Ceelo picked Cody! YES! We need BAM BAM up there to entertain us… And he can SANG… too.

    Anyways.. I am so impressed America voted for Nicholas, he is not my cup of tea, but I get it..

  • alonzo7

    I only voted for 5 people total and they all made it so I’m happy.
    Had to switch back and forth tonight with the XFactor so missed the second group number.  I’m sure I’ll find it on you tube.

  • Jordana33

    After tonight the teams don´t matter anymore. The two lowest vote getters regardless of what team they are, will be eliminated..

    Thank goodness! Another great improvement from last season!

  • Valentin432

    Yup, pretty female singers, that’s a boring category of course, only pretty boys need to apply to sastify the hunger of fangirls and their moms.

    THe misoginy that these competition shows attract is baffling year after year

    Just re-watch the performance; man I forgot just how fineeeeeeee & fit Jermaine is ;)

  • girlygirltoo

    sorry to see De’Borah go…she was fun and unique.

    Jermaine’s single is pretty bad.

    Rewatching CeeLo & Xtina group performance; they really seem to gel and enjoy each other on the stage.  Seriously Devyn really do have lovely hair and I enjoyed Dez’s pants ;)

  • http://twitter.com/jepriy Jepoy Ramos

    They are doing a live event right now at house of blues

    http://www.iheart.com/live/6064/

    They are sounding amazing. The judges were great also. Seems like they are all having fun.

    This is why I love the voice. It seems very chill and it’s all about the music. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.lie.10 Kevin Lie

    Adriana is really good, she just needs to pick better songs. Already Gone was the perfect song choice for her.

  • WestiesRule

    As long as there is some decent talent I’m good with whatever… 

  • voicesinmyhead

    IMO Cassadee is a one note performer and singer. How is Cassadee better than Loren? SMH Must be nice to already have a fanbase built BEFORE the show that’s why she made final 12 imo.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Good luck trying to repackage Jermaine Paul but I don’t think the song or the repackaging worked for him.

  • jga94

    I am going to miss De’borah…glad Terry and Nicholas made it Through

  • http://twitter.com/eilonwya10 Eilonwy

    Good luck trying to repackage Jermaine Paul but I don’t think the song or the repackaging worked for him.

    That song… I get what they were aiming for musically… but surely the song is badly constructed if on the first hearing, I’m wondering if the singer is off-key or losing the tempo in spots. Fortunately, it was also unmemorable.

    The production screamed “state college talent show” or possibly “wickedly subtle parody of community dance troop.”

     First of all this is a very strong top 12 for the Voice. I feel that with the battle round changes, knockout and playoff rounds we ave gotten to know the contestants alot mor than season 1 or 2. Like there is much more of an investment in this season that previous seasons. CeeLO has a great team. Love he chose Cody whois a dark horse. Adam’s team is strong but not a huge Melanie fan. I am really dissapointed in Christina for choosing Adriana over Deborah. Whats Christna’s facination wih this girl? She loves her. I predict all of Christina’s artists to be the first to go.Deboarh IMO should try out for Idol.  I love her realness and uniqueness.

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    There are some terrific singers in this top 12.  It’s the best season for The Voice.  Dez and Cody are definite pretty boys!  LOL!
