10 Best (and Worst) Moments of ‘The Voice’ Finale Performances (Guest Blog)

Wow, I can’t believe we’re at the end of this long “The Voice” journey on NBC. Season 5 – despite your excessive use of a smoke machine — I’m sad to see you go. Now one last time – let’s talk about my favorite (and least favorite) moments from this week’s final performances. 1. Coach wardrobe check Coach Adam Levine was going to the country club for a Great Gatsby themed party, while coach Cee Lo Green was wearing what appeared to be fancy tire treads. We can always count on Cee Lo, eh? 2. Queen of the night OK, let’s get straight to my favorite performance this week. Tessanne Chin’s “I Have Nothing” was nothing short of phenomenal. She seemed a little intimidated by doing such an iconic piece in rehearsals but then tore through it onstage like it was her last night on earth (appropriate for a final song!). While the effort was more obvious here than in some of her other performances, it worked well for the song’s sense of urgency. When she reached that peak towards the end of the last chorus, it was ferocious and elegant at the same time. I think Whitney Houston would be proud. Watch the performance again above.   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/10-best-worst-moments-voice-finale-performances-guest-blog/
