Tonight The Voice 2012 Top 6 takes to the stage to sing for America’s votes and a for a spot in the quarterfinals next week. So that means only four will move on after tomorrow night’s results show and will be one step closer to the title.
Last week Team Christina was wiped out as Dez Duron was voted off the show along with Team Cee Lo’s Cody Belew. That means Teams Adam, Blake and Cee Lo have two artists each, making up the Top 6.
The Top 6 — Team Adam: Amanda Brown and Melanie Martinez; Team Blake: Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott; and Team CeeLo: Nicholas David and Trevin Hunte.
Who do you think has what it takes to move on and advance to the quarterfinals next week?
Be sure to check back here tonight for the live coverage of the performances and again later for a full recap of the The Voice 2012 Top 6 performances.
You might be hearing from The Voice Season 2 contestant Juliet Simms again soon because Cee Lo Green announced that he and his Primary Wave Music has signed on to manage the former Team Cee Lo contestant.
Cee Lo coached Juliet last season all the way to first runner-up. So even though she didn’t win The Voice her season, it looks like she’s well on her way to the musical career she’s been working toward.
“Juliet has that electricity in her voice, originality, likability and real brand-ability,” Cee Lo said in an interview recently. “As I told her from the beginning, I’m dedicated to building her career and with the help of Primary Wave’s resources, I’m confident that she’ll be the girl to watch in 2013.”
Juliet landed on The Voice Season 2 after several unsuccessful record deals.
Cee Lo talks to Christina Milian about the “breaking news” in the clip below. Juliet is also set to appear on the Dec. 11 episode of The Voice 2012 to perform her new single “Wild Child.”
This week on The Voice 2012, the Top 8 became the Top 6 as we said goodbye to Cody Belew and Dez Duron.
The remaining six contestants sat down with Christina Milian for the weekly group discussion, where they mourned the losses of Cody and Dez (they really miss Cody!) and talked about how hard it is to say goodbye to artists that are eliminated. The also let us in on some of their thoughts on their group performances.
“We get so close to everyone … you want to be happy and excited and celebrate, but at the same time your good friends go home,” Cassadee Pope said. “It’s like a roller coaster.”
The topic eventually turns to dream collaborations and family.
Terry McDermott’s surprise visit from his family came up as did Nicholas David’s baby that is due soon.
“I was an inch away from getting to swear on national television,” Terry said of being shocked by his family showing up to surprise him.
Find out what else The Voice 2012 Top 6 had to say in the after show chat posted below.
The Voice 2012 Top 8 became the Top 6 Tuesday night and one of the coaches was left without a team when America’s votes were revealed.
Team Christina bit the dust when Dez Duron was eliminated along with Cody Belew from Team Cee Lo. That means Teams Cee Lo, Adam and Blake each have two artists remaining in the contest. Does this mean Christina gets to stay home from now on? Ha. Don’t count on it.
At the start of the show we got the first in many filler episodes with one little elimination thrown in between each performance. So slow, drawn-out and frustrating. But anyone who has ever read my blogs, knows how much I loathe singing show results shows.
So after the first group performance, Carson gets the Top 8 on the stage to reveal the first person who is safe. And that person was Team Blake’s Cassadee Pope, who again did well with her Monday night performance on iTunes.
The Voice 2012 Top 8 becomes the Top 6 tonight as we find out what America really thought of Monday night’s performances. So will Christina be the first coach to have no artists left in the contest? Let’s find out how America’s votes played out.
The Voice 2012 Top 8 Results
Safe and moving on to the Top 10:
- Cassadee Pope (Team Blake)
- Amanda Brown (Team Adam)
- Melanie Martinez (Team Adam)
- Nicholas David (Team Cee Lo)
- Terry McDermott (Team Blake)
- Trevin Hunte (Team Cee Lo)
Last night on The Voice 2012, the Top 8 took to the stage to sing for America’s votes. So who did America love this week? We’ll be finding out later tonight. One thing we do know is that two people will be heading home.
So by the end of the night, we’ll have The Voice 2012 Top 6. Who do you think is going to stay and who do you think is going to go?
I think it’s safe to say that Amanda Brown is safe and I might say Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott are as well. But as the numbers shrink so does my confidence in playing this guessing game. Two people has to go and it could seriously be anyone. According to our poll, our readers are telling us that Cassadee and Trevin Hunte are definitely safe, but Dez Duron and Melanie Martinez may not be. If Dez leaves the contest tonight, Christina’s team will be completely wiped out.
What do you think will happen tonight? What are you hoping happens tonight?
Check back in later tonight for the live results of The Voice 2012 and a full recap of the show later.
The Voice 2012 Top 8 took the stage by storm Monday night, singing for America’s votes. This is a pretty solid Top 8, so America, you’ve got your work cut out for you with this voting thing.
As always, I weigh in with my own thoughts as I review each performance and assign the letter grade I think each deserved.
Amanda Brown, Someone Like You (Team Adam)
I really liked Amanda’s version of this song. Adele songs are way overdone on these singing shows, so this was a refreshing version and she killed it. She was totally in her element with the power-rock slant. Her vocals were there, her stage presence, all of it. Amanda will be in the finale, I’m sure. A+
Cody Belew, Somebody To Love (Team Cee Lo)
While I love the song choice (I’m a huge Queen fan) Cody couldn’t quite stack up to Freddie Mercury. And before anyone says he wasn’t trying to, it kind of sounded like he was from what he and Cee Lo were saying before the performance. It was a good performance, don’t get me wrong. He just doesn’t have that great big voice Freddie does. B+
Terry McDermott, Over (Team Blake)
It was a country song, but it didn’t exactly sound country. Terry still put his own self into it. He can pretty much singing anything with that smooth and clean voice. I feel like what Terry’s lacking a bit of a connection to his audience. I get a slightly arrogant vibe. But I might be wrong. What do you think? B+
Melanie Martinez, Too Close (Team Adam)
If every performance Melanie ever did sounded like this, she might not be one of my least favorite singers in the competition. Because this one was pretty decent. Actually, her last two I kind of liked. Now if she’d just ditch that hair! B+
The Voice 2012 Top 8 takes to the stage tonight to sing for your votes. And once again, it’s now all up to you. America decides who stays and who goes tomorrow night, so your votes are more still very important. And keep in mind, two people will be heading out on Tuesday night.

The Voice 2012 Top 8 hits the stage tonight and will again sing for America’s votes.
It’s getting down to the wire, so it’s more important than ever for fans to vote for their favorites. Bryan Keith and Sylvia Yacoub fans were stunned when the two of them were sent packing from the contest last week, so anything can happen.
With Sylvia leaving the show, that leaves coach Christina Aguilera with only one artist left. Could she be the first coach to have on team left at all after this week?
Also scheduled to perform tonight is 50 Cent. He will be perfuming along with the top 8 and coach Adam Levine.
The Top 8 — Team Adam: Amanda Brown and Melanie Martinez; Team Blake: Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott; Team Christina: Dez Duron; and Team CeeLo: Cody Belew, Nicholas David and Trevin Hunte.
Be sure to check back here tonight for the live coverage of the performances and again later for a full recap of the The Voice 2012 Top 8 performances.
This week on The Voice 2012, the Top 8 was assembled as Bryan Keith and Sylvia Yacoub were eliminated.
After the elimination show, the somewhat sombre Top 8 sat down with Christina Milian to discuss their time on the show so far and address some questions that fans have been dying to hear the answers to. I’m wondering if they should do these post-show chats the day after elimination so the artists aren’t still mourning the losses of their fellow competitors and friends.
For example, you might be surprised to hear some of the singers’ most embarrassing moments, like falling off the stage and splitting heir pants during rehearsal.
They also talk about what its like to join their coaches and some very famous guest stars during the noncompetition performances.
Find out what else The Voice 2012 Top 8 had to say during the after-show video posted below. And we’ll be back on Monday night to watch the Top 8 perform. See you there!
