THE VOICE RECAP: Battle Rounds End With Tony Vincent, Justin Hopkins & Crying Cee Lo: ENTV

This week on “The Voice” team Cee Lo and team Adam will perform for fan votes. The top three vote getters will move on to the next round; after the bottom three are revealed and perform one more time, the judges will pick one of them to move on; while the other two will be eliminated.

The first performance was from Katrina Parker from team Adam with “Tonight, Tonight” by Smashing Pumpkins. Christina was captivated by Katrina’s voice but wanted her to rock out more. Cee Lo said that Katrina has a wonderful voice and made a commendable effort. Adam was happy with the song choice and Katrina’s performance; adding that overall she killed it.

The first performer from team Cee Los was Hawaiian Chessa with a contemporary rendition of the disco hit “Don’t Leave Me this Way” by Thelma Houston. Blake loved the performance; saying it was like watching “Solid Gold”. Blake thought it was a perfect song choice and awesome. Adam loved the showmanship, thinks Chessa is a great singer, and did a great job. Coach Cee Lo said Adam was wrong, Chessa did a wonderful job; adding that it was electrifying.

Former Musketeer Tony Lucca – he was on the show with coach Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake – took on Peter Gabriel with “In Your Eyes”. Christina called it a good performance but wonders if Tony is one dimentional. After noting that Christina’s words were honest, and honest was good, Adam said Tony made him proud and was happy with Tony’s performance noting that he gave Tony a big challenge.

Also from team Adam was the competition’s oldest performer Kim Yarborough who chose “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. Blake said the song got better as it went along; adding that Kim is a powerful singer. Cee Lo called it a safe song; adding that he loved Kim he just wasn’t sure about the song. Adam called Kim an unbelievable singer; but noted their were some issues with the performance. Adam said that the performance did show Kim’s potential.

James Massone from team Cee Lo performed “Don’t Know Why” by Norah Jones. As James performed he cruised the audience and touched the hands of screaming girls. James is the heartthrob of the season. Blake said, “I almost threw my panties on the stage.” Blake added that he wanted to hear the number because he wanted to vote for James. Christina liked the subtle changes but noted that James had some pitch issues. After encouraging the girils, coach Cee Lo said James did a great job and was solid. Cee Lo thought the set and performance was so James.

Juliet Simms of team Cee Lo performed “Roxanne” by The Police. Adam hated to admit it but he said Juliet’s performance was the best he had seen so far. Christina was into it and loved it. Blake felt like he heard Juliet sing for the first time and understands what all the fuss is about. Cee Lo said, “wow, just wow.” He said Juliet did an amazing job.

Mathai from team Adam performed “Ordinary People” by John Legend. Christina likes Mathai’s voice a lot and liked how she made the song her own but felt the performance was a bit loungey. Blake loved Mathai’s voice and her confidence. Adam said Mathai had something magical.

New Papa Tony Vincent is looking to move off of Broadway and into the pop realm. Cee Lo chose the Tears for Fears hit “everybody Wants to Rule to World”. After everyone congratulated Tony on the birth of baby Sadie…Christina appreciated the production value of the performance but felt the song restrained Tony vocally. Coach Cee Lo agreed on the song restraining Tony vocally but said that he would vote for Tony if he wanted to rule the world.

Karla Davis from team Adam performed “Airplanes” by B.o.b. Christina was surprised by the song choice; adding that Karla was the biggest surprise of the night. Blake felt Karla did the best she could with the song. Adam loved the choice and although there were a few issues felt Karla did a fantastic job.

Erin Martin from team Cee Lo took on The Bangles with “Walk Like an Egyptian”. Again Blake said she did as good as she could do with the song. Christina loves theatrics but told Erin that she needed to bring it more. Cee Lo said that Christina had some good points; adding the although Erin did a good job, she needed to be more aggressive.

Last up for team Adam was Pip with “When You Were Young” by The Killers. While appreciating his vocal ability, Christina felt the performance came off as trying too hard. Coach Adam said it was an interesting choice but thinks Pip needs to work more on his intent.

The final performance of the night was from team Cee Lo was “the come back kid” Jamar Rogers with “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny Kravits. Blake said that Jamar was too good for all the stuff going on on the stage. Adam begged to speak and said to forget about all the teams, Jamar embodies what the show is all about. Coach Cee Lo simply acknowledged the rousing cheers and screams from the audience.

On the Tuesday results show the top three vote getters from each team will be revealed and who Adam and Cee Lo will choose to stay.
