‘The Voice’ Elimination Episode Recap: Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott Make it to Top 6
On tonight's (Nov. 27) episode of 'The Voice,' the Top 8 were reduced to a Top 6. Blake Shelton had two horses in the race with Scottish rocker Terry McDermott and pop rocker Cassadee Pope. Both delivered risky performances last night, by choosing unexpected songs. Were they rewarded for taking chances?
Hell yes they were.
We found out early on that McDermott was No. 1 on the iTunes rock chart, so it was a safe assumption that he would move on to the Top 6. However, we found out that Pope was safe at the top of the episode and were left hanging regarding McDermott's fate. Those wily, sneaky producers. It seemed like a foregone conclusion that McDermott's domination of the rock chart would make him a sure thing for moving on.
But this is a TV show and drama is key, even if they producers have to "fake" it a little to create some drama for ratings.
We found out with 10 minutes left in the episode that McDermott was safe and sound and would continue to compete next week. Phew.
It's an embarrassment of riches for Shelton, since both of his remaining team members could easily take the crown and win Season 3 of 'The Voice.'
It's also worth nothing that Shelton's team members had chart-topping performances two weeks in a row. Pope was No. 1 last week with her rendition of Miranda Lambert's 'Over You,' which Shelton co-wrote. McDermott was No. 1 this week with his rendition of his coach's hit 'Over.' Are we sensing a pattern here? Shelton-related songs are topping those charts, and perhaps the singer will win Season 3, notching back-to-back season wins.
