"The Voice" Week 2 Performances Have Lots Of Rock And Roll
Katrina Parker, for Team Adam, needed to rock out a little more on her performance and let her personality shine for the audience. Her along with Cheesa from Team Cee Lo have strength in their vocals, but at this point in the competition, it isn't enough.
Christina Aguilera laid it out there when she called her former Mouseketeer, Tony Lucca, "one dimensional" after his performance. Although, the power in his voice is present, her comment may not have been far from the truth.
Team Adam's contestants vocal talent is alive and well but their personalities seem to falter through their performances. Exhibit A was in Karla Davis whose bold choice to sing B.O.B's "Airplanes." The song choice not only showed her discomfort, but was somewhat difficult to watch. Lucky for Mathai, her rendition of "Ordinary People" and her charm will most likely get her a spot for the next live performances.
The night's greatest performances came from Team Cee Lo. Juliet Simms rocked the stage with The Police's "Roxanne." Her sultry intro and gritty voice was not only the best performance of the night, it received a standing ovation. Cee Lo knew exactly what he was doing with Boston native, James Massone, by letting him sing "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones. His soft smoothness to this jazz song especially went over well with the ladies in the audience.
Then there was Team Cee Lo's Jamar Rogers. Adam said it best that this man embodies exactly what this show is about. Jamar gives it all every performance with his emotions, vocal ability and crowd interaction. His last note solidified him as one of the top people to beat after last night's performance.
Next week, the remaining 12 members of Team Blake and Team Christina will take the stage. Make sure to tune in tonight at 9 p.m. on NBC to see which of your favorites made it through to next week.
