"The Voice" Final Four Light Up The Stage
Jermaine Paul has come a long way from a backup singer to dynamic solo artist, Alicia Keys. He sang "I Believe I Can Fly" which was not only fitting to his journey, but rocked his levels of vocal ability. Blake and Jermaine sang "Soul Man" together that was a lighthearted performance. Throughout the season, Jermaine has been the most consistently vulnerable and really has what it takes to become "The Voice."
Sticking to his classical operatic roots, Chris Mann sang "You Raise Me Up" for his solo performance. There is no denying that this is where he gives his best performances. The song brought both him and his coach to tears, showing that it is not only a struggle but a blessing to be on that stage. Christina and him sang "The Prayer," which was absolutely breathtaking. The combination of their voices was simply heaven and an inspiration to what power they both have. It will be interesting to see whether sticking to his classic vocal ability will make him "The Voice."
Adam Levine's Tony Lucca rocked every single song he sang on Monday night's episode. For his solo performance, he sang a country rock arrangement of Jay-Z's "99 Problems." Although, Christina took offense to its deregoratory connotation, he took risks with that song and did a great job. As a tribute to his coach he sang Maroon 5's hit "Harder to Breathe," which couldn't have been better suited for him and again proved that not only can he sing, but he has dynamic stage presence.
Last but not least, Team Cee Lo's Juliet Simms sang "Freebird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Yet prior to that, her and Cee Lo sang "Born to Be Wild" which fit both of their personalities perfectly. She said she wanted to give the performance of her life and last night she did just that. Her manipulation of the notes and ability to stretch those out was simply unbeleivable. Cee Lo gave her the biggest compliemt saying, "With Juliet Simms on my team, I have no problems." Hopefully, she won't either on Tuesday night's results show.
Make sure to tune in Tuesday at 9 p.m. to find out who America chose as "The Voice."
