The Voice Semifinals Results: 60-40 I Forget The Whole Thing

by at . Comments

In comparison to Monday's semifinals, there was very little Christina Aguilera on tonight's The Voice Results. That made me happy, but it probably disappointed the loyal Xtina lovers, which includes many of you TV Fanatics.

With some help from the coaches, America whittled the remaining crop of hopeful artists from eight to four, preparing us for what should be an exciting finale next week. Who made it through? Who was sent home? And which former finalist returned with the best performance of the night?

The Semifinal Contestants

That's right. Before we got to all of the results, there were a few performances by some friendly faces. Last season's final four, Dia Frampton, Vicki Martinez, Beverly McClellan, and Javier Colon were in the house to belt out some tunes.

Dia sang with Kid Cudi, Vicki performed with her former coach Cee Lo, Beverly rocked out with Cyndi Lauper and Javier worked solo. I wasn't surprised by the fact that last year's champion was still my favorite an entire year later. Dia was also pretty solid.

Now let's move on to THIS year's performers!

Team Xtina

It was Chris Mann vs. Lindsey Pavao for a spot in the finals, and Christina decided to split it 50/50. I can't argue with wanting to leave it up to America, which ended up giving Chris 54% of the vote, and making Chris Mann victorious with 104 points to Lindsey's 96.

These two were so different, and both extremely talented, that I'm not surprised that it was so close. My choice was Lindsey, but I do not hate that Chris made his way to the championship. He should have made it through for his awesome photo-bombing skills alone.

Team Adam

This was Katrina Parker vs. Tony Lucca. Adam gave Tony a 60/40 advantage heading into America's vote. I wasn't surprised by his decision, or the fact that he took a couple hours to explain said decision. America gave Katrina 52% of the vote, but her 92 total points weren't enough to overcome Tony Lucca's 108.

That was surprising. I didn't see Katrina earning more of America's vote than Tony, and that can't bode well for him in next week's finale. I would have chosen Tony, so I'm happy to see him move on, but I am also a bit troubled by the fact that the coach's pull was the sole reason he is now in the finals.

Team Blake

The country star was given the duo of Jermaine Paul and Erin Willet and he couldn't decide between them, splitting his vote 50/50. He would have had to have given Erin a giant percentage if he really wanted her to win, because Jermaine Paul took down 73% of America's vote to finish with 123 points to Erin's 77.

I'm not so much surprised that Jermaine won by that margin, because we did see Vicki and Javier score 75 and 73, respectively, last season, but rather I'm worried that he may win this whole thing next week. I could have taken or left either one of these two, so this result didn't matter that much, but next week will be a different story.

Team Cee Lo

Finally, we were given an interesting move by one of the coaches. I definitely wasn't expecting Cee Lo to give anything other than 50/50 for his pair of Juliet Simms and Jamar Rogers. He has loved Jamar so much throughout this season that I was very surprised when he ended up favoring Juliet with a 60/40 score.  His decision didn't matter, though, because Juliet Simms also earned 61% of America's vote to finish with 121 points to Jamar's 79.

As the President of the Hypothetical Juliet Simms Fan Club, that result gets me extremely excited. Jamar won the popular vote for Team Cee Lo in the quarterfinals, so for her to have gained enough steam to beat him by 61% is a good sign. The amount of action her songs have gotten in iTunes can't hurt either.  Go Juliet!

--------------------

So there you have it people.  Next week's final will be between Chris Mann, Tony Lucca, Jermaine Paul, and Juliet Simms. Juliet is who I want to win, and if you are making me predict a winner, she would be my choice again. I believe Jermaine is her biggest competition, but he would be my fourth choice to win the second season of The Voice.

What did you all think of this week's results? Who was your favorite returning finalist? And which eliminated contestant will you miss most?

Is it just me that doesn't get Jermaine? I mean, he's ok, but nothing spectacular. I don't find his voice unique at all, and his songs are always boring and uneventful.

I don't like that they have coaches do scores. There are only two times America gets a real say in things and we should get the full say. At least with Ceelo the 60-40 split didn't affect anything because Juliet won the popular vote anyway but it makes me sad that Katrina went home when she won the popular vote. I bet Adam feels like crap. I think he honestly didn't think it would have come down to him. I also really wish Jamar and Juliet had been on differen't teams because they were my two favorites. My top 4 (teams and previous eliminations aside) would have been Jamar Juliet Katrina and Tony (not lucca the broadway one). So heres to hoping Juliet wins! :)

You could tell how disappointed Jamar was by the slight hug he gave his coach. Sorry - I am not that impressed with Juliet and hope that Jermaine wins this one - very disappointed with the way this has gone this year - Jesse should have stayed. I felt that CeeLo was talking around in circles and can't figure Adam out!!

ps: i think majority of people vote for chris man is to make a vengeance to xtina choice of kicking jess out.. they blame lindsey for that because they think that xtina favors lindsey allot!am so very SAD!!!! i have nothing against the man but like i said i never connect with his song choice.. his pretty tho! but hands down xtina team wont win this year!!!!!

Avatar

heart breaking!!!!!! so sad to see Lindsey go home!!!!!! i thought shes doing good... her song chart #3 on itunes what can go wrong?!! chris is awesome singer but i cant relate to his song.. as an artist its so important to sing a song that connect with people ... i think that xtina was surprise to see the result too.. that was very very close!!!!!!! all in all this is the most saddest episode ever seeing Lindsey break down! :(

Eneci

I'm so saddddddd Lindsey went home! Chris Man, I really don't think he has the "thing" to win this show! Lindsey with a great song like her Last chance performance from last week she could kill it and take the crown! Juliet nailed it last night! and If CeeLo wants to win this shit! This girl need to nail it one time again! And she can do it! She is born to do it! :D

I knew when Ceelo picked that lame song for Jamar last night that he was bussing him, in fact I knew when Ceelo started giving Juliet real showstoppers (Jamar would have killed doing “Roxanne�, or “It’s a Man’s World� too) that he was favoring her, so I’m not surprized at the point break, but my heart broke for Jamar tonight nevertheless.
So what is this site?A fan base for Juliet?Nobody knew her before Roxanne and now you're all her fans?

I was expecting the vote for America to be a little more even between Jamar and Juliet. A little disappointed with that although I really do like Juliet. The score for Christina`s team was close with 54 to 46 that is what I was expecting for Cee Lo`s team. I am happy though because this is who I would have gone with. Maybe Lindsey over Chris but he still deserved it. 1-4 will be Juliet, Chris, Tony and Jermaine. I would prefer Tony in second but this is how I see it going down.

Based on who was left in the competition, I think the right contestants made it to the finals. i'm surprised Tony had fewer audience votes than Katrina. He was consistently the highest vote-getter on his team and last night was his best performance so far. I just assumed he would easily make the finals, without Adam's help. Maybe the fans made the same assumption and got complacent. Juliet is my favorite to win, but I will miss Jamar.

I hope Jermaine wins. He's my favorite, and has a REALLY awesome voice.
