‘The Voice’ Top 4: It’s Team Blake Shelton vs. Team Cee Lo Green
‘The Voice’ Top 4 have been chosen, and as we mentioned in Monday night’s recap (Dec. 3), Blake Shelton appears to have the strongest team in the finals for Season 3. His fellow coach Christina Aguilera even said it out loud, showing her support.
The elimination results were revealed last night (Dec. 4), and both Team Blake competitors Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope have advanced into the Top 4! But Team Blake faces some tough competition, as Cee Lo Green also has two horses in the race. So it’s Team Blake vs. Team Cee Lo in 2012. Put up your dukes, boys!
Adam Levine, who won Season 1 of the show, saw his remaining contestants eliminated on Tuesday, while Aguilera’s final team member was sent home two weeks ago. Shelton won Season 2, and Green has never won a season, so competition during the final weeks of the show will be fierce.
Scottish rocker McDermott — who has shown that he can handle classic rock anthems with a modern, pitch-perfect flair — and pop rocker Pope, who wasn’t afraid to add a little country twang to her repertoire with renditions of both a Miranda Lambert song and a Rascal Flatts song during the live shows, will represent Team Blake well.
Shelton has a 50 percent chance of winning his second season in a row with either of these contestants. Remember, his Season 1 contestant, Dia Frampton, was the runner-up, so it appears that the strongest coach on the show is Shelton. Contestants should consider that fact when picking their coaches during Season 4.
Team Cee Lo will attempt to bring it with quirky folk rocker Nicholas David and R&B crooner Trevin Hunte, each of whom have a solid chance of winning as well.
Things are going to get interesting as the final weeks of the show wind down and the Season 3 ‘The Voice’ winner is crowned.
