She didn't make the finals, to the shock of the nation (and Rolling Stone as they declared "a star is born"). The point that jumped out at me after the first few minutes of talking to Amanda was the concept of a risk-taker. In this, I discovered a new take on "Americana."
"The Voice's" Top 6 took the stage on Monday night with a song choice of their own and one their coadge picked, while Christina Aguilera -- whose contestants have all gone home -- sat back looking what we're sure she thought was pretty.
This week the Top 8 took the stage on "The Voice." There was Adele, pigtail braids, foot tambourines, some piano climbing, fog machines, and one of the most absurd things we've ever heard on "The Voice." Thanks, Christina Milian.
The Top 10 of "The Voice's" third season took the stage Monday night and delivered one of the best all-around evenings of performances the show has ever seen. There was Usher, there was White Stripes, there was Billy Joel and there was even a little Blake Shelton.
Adam Levine's Top 5 and Blake Shelton's Top 5 perform before the audience takes control. Three artists will move on from each team, thanks to audience votes, and the coadges will each save one more contestant on Thursday night's results show.
