Millions tuned in to The Voice season finale tonight to see who would be crowned the winner. It was down to three very different singer’s and according to many polls, it could have gone either way.
The last three remaining contestants all brought something different to the table; Nicholas David is soulful with a non-traditional look , Cassadee Polk has pop star looks and a smooth tone, and Terry McDermott is a revival of old school rock and looks seasoned on stage.
It was a glitzy season finale, first Rihanna opened the show singing “Diamonds“. They also brought back early fan favorites including; Amanda Brown, Michaela Paige, Bryan Keith and Rudy Parris to rock a “KISS” song with Terry. Not my thing but they did a good job…I like the hook but the rest they can save for heavy rockers (thank goodness for DVR fast forward:).
Then a variety of popular singers teamed up with the final three contestants. There was legendary Smokey Robinson and Nicholas David, The Killer’s and Cassadee Polk…not sure why they chose that name, but they sounded great. The lead singer looks so innocent…maybe he meant to call them “The Driller’s? And Grammy award winner Peter Frampton performed a rock song with Terry McDermott.
Kelly Clarkson performed her new song with Cassadee and Terry and they sounded amazing together. She really has come a long way since Idol. But how ironic…an American Idol former contestant was on The Voice? The list kept going…Bruno Mars and Avril Lavigne also performed. Bruno is definitely my new Prince…love that dude. Big budget show for sure! Could they have fit anyone else on stage…wow!
Although there was only one winner, it was an exciting night for all the final contestants. They each received a brand new Kia…to drive away in! Still wish Trevin Hunte and Amanda Brown would have driven away with one too! One thing’s for sure…they earned a new car tonight with all the songs they had to learn for tonight.
So who won The Voice? Was it Team Blake OR Team Cee Lo? Third place went to Nicholas so I don’t have to eat my remote...whew! No real shocker…Cassadee Polk was crowned “The Voice” so Blake wins again. It probably has something to do with her hitting number one on iTunes. Great job! But let’s face it…she sounds like pretty much any other singer out there…America is predictable.
On another note, next season it will be great to see Christina Aguilera replaced with Shakira, and Cee Lo replaced with Usher. Now this may be worth watching! Love them both…:). Glad to see Christina leaving…too much me, me, me for me.
Did America get it right?
