This is going to be short and sweet folks. Is it a full moon? Because I think that was one of the weirdest, weakest finales I’ve ever witnessed from The Voice. I think I preferred it when they had to beg famous people (or ask friends) to come perform on the show with the artists. The rest of the time they filled it with performances with almost all the artists singing together. What happened to the final four getting to pick friends from the show to come sing with them? Don’t let me harsh your mellow if you really loved it.
As I stated yesterday, really any of the four deserved the title of winner. Each one of them is destined for a career in music. Hell, I think the ones that came back to perform do as well. It is no surprise to me that the highlights of the show for me are those where Voice artists participated. What I REALLY didn’t like was the fact that I didn’t know who half the “famous” people were who came to perform. Have no idea who it was that sang with Keisha and Adam, although they did awesome. Ditto Noah Mac, but I think I probably wouldn’t know even if I was Noah’s age.
I loved seeing Norah Jones with Addison. Where has Norah been? Brooke was fierce with Sia (how the fuck does that woman walk around with that on her head?). Once I got over Billy Idol’s face (it is smoother than it was in the 80s!), I enjoyed that too. However, I think this is the third time the mic hasn’t picked up Chloe’s lower register. It didn’t even pick up on Billy as strongly as it should have. Not acceptable, guys! Hated to say it but I got antsy with Vince Gill and Red. I didn’t pay attention at all.
By far my favorite moment was when Chris Weaver as his drag persona Nedra Belle came out with other queens to sing Bang Bang, and one of the original singers, Jesse J, came out with them. The production values were nearly as high as Nedra’s hair! It was awesome; even Jennifer got out of her chair! Miley, of course, was rocking her ass off. I’m stunned her seat doesn’t have a seat belt to keep her in it during the show. I also kind of liked it because you KNOW there are some Voice watchers out there who were squirming on their couches a little.
Frankly, I think the only people who come to perform must perform with an artist, unless they are a former or future coach. I give Kelly Clarkson and Pharrell a pass, even though I have no idea what Mr. Williams was doing. Cat distracted me a little (he’s feeling a little low I think) but I didn’t care enough to rewind.
The final standings are #4 – Red, #3 – Brooke, #2 – Addison, and well deserved, #1 win was Chloe! I was surprised at Red being 4th, with the country fan base. Maybe Addison’s folk divided it up a little? After one of the “interview” segments where they also showed clips of them interacting, I really do believe that Miley and Brooke have made a connection. Miley ran up on stage with a crown for Brooke. I hope they maintain it. I think Blake and Adam will keep in contact with their artists too, as they have in the past. Jury is out on JHud Productions.
