The Voice 2012 results

The Voice 2012 Top 6 became the Top 4 Tuesday night as two more artists were sent packing after Amercia’s votes were revealed. Another coach was also knocked out of the contest and will be joining Christina Aguilera on the sidelines.

Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown said goodbye to The Voice, which leaves the Top 4: Terry McDermott, Trevin Hunte, Cassadee Pope and Nicholas David. So that means Coach Adam Levine is out and only Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton remain.

During the first round of results, Carson Daly sent Terry McDermott to safety. After more filler performances we learn that Trevin Hunte is also safe. So that leaves just Melanie, Nicholas and Amanda. Carson says following the next performance, one of the artists will be eliminated, instead of revealing the next safe artists and eliminating the last two standing.

So after Melanie and Nicholas sing their duet, they join Amanda on stage to find out who is the first to go. Carson reveals that it’s Melanie. So that leaves Amanda and Nicholas. At this point it has become obvious to me who is going to stay and who is going to go. Carson proves my instincts correct and sends Nicholas on to the Top 4 and tells Amanda she will be heading home.

I’m not surprised by Melanie’s departure. Her sound is too specific and that fan base isn’t large enough to keep a contestant in a singing  competition. But Amanda, who wowed fans week after week, had a broader fan base. So I was shocked to learn that she wasn’t faring so well on the iTunes charts (which now count as votes) and in polls this week. It all came down to song choice, I believe. Trevin was most-likely going to be the next person out, but his song choice sent him ahead of Amanda, sealing her fate.

It’s an unfortunate elimination, in my opinion, but like Christina says, it’s not the end of the world. And I’m going to go ahead and say it: Amanda’s elimination paves the way for a Cassadee Pope win. Blake will have his second winner in a row, I predict.

What did you think of this week’s results? Did America get it right? Are you surprised that Adam is out of the game now along with Xtina?
