Chris in 4th, not a shock. I think its down to Juliet vs. Lucca
Tony in third place.
Juliet has got this in the bag now!
YESSS Lucca is third! hahaha take that Levine and the Beliebers!
4th Chris very gracious if a little stunned
3rd Tony well, well. Interesting.
2nd and 1st separated by less than 4%
winner is Jermaine. I'm thinking his Soul Man with Blake put him through last night.
I had no problems with any of them winning. Good for all of them. Hope things work out well for them all.
Blake looks happier than Jermaine.
Well, I was ABT, but I won't be buying anything Jermaine puts out. Meh.
Jermaine? Well, he sounds like a nice guy. I'm happy for him.
But I really thought once Tony Lucca was in third place, Juliet had it.
FAIL, America, FAIL!
Silver lining ...
1. At least it wasn't cheesy Tony.
2. Now I can just FFWD the DVD to Chris' trio, and save myself 90 minutes.
Wow this is complete and utter BS
EPIC America Failure again...
He's going to sing I Believe I can Fly. I believe I am changing the channel.
That is so funny. I guess Blake was right that Jermaine was the one to beat. I am very suprised. But, Juliet had one of her worst nights last night and Jermaine had one of his best. Tony turned his own fans off and I guess the Justins couldn't save him. IMO, last night Chris looked like a weak version of Josh Groban, so I'm not that surprised.
Don't do that. The outtakes are hysterical. Apart from the Beib, the music by all the contestants tonight was good.
Agree with all of the above. If Juliet had performed like she did last week I believe the outcome would have been different, but that's the way it goes.
Christina forgot her pants again. Must be Beiber fever.
THANK YOU AMERICA - Lucca in 3rd. Katrina would be have been higher I think.
Wow! Jermaine won. I'm shocked. Guess I thought his win over Erin was a reflection on her small fan base, not his big one. Not upset with is win, he was a class act the whole way.
Poor Juliet - I thought she had that in the bag.
I thought I was ok with anyone winning but I didn't expect this. I predict we will never hear from him again until next year's finale but it really couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. And I enjoyed his song with the 3 other guys the most of all the performance tonight. Even James sounded good.
Jermaine was never in the bottom in the audience voting, now that I think about it.
I didn't realize Jermaine is from NY. My local news station hasn't been this jubilant since Sarah Hughes won the OGM.
I think Juliet would have won if she hadn't been ill last night, so she didn't win over the casual viewers who didn't tune in until the final. Rotten timing!
Luckily, Cee-lo said he would sign Juliet if she didn't win, so I think she'll still be ok.
I'm trying to figure out what kind of album Jermaine will make. The songs he did on the show don't give us a great indication.
All four of last year's finalists got a contract. I suspect all 4 of this year's will as well. Their ultimate success depends on luck, getting a good song, getting an agressive agent, luck, and promotion. All are professional singers. The Voice has given them a face to the public. Jermaine seems like a really nice guy and I wish him success.
I wonder if Blake will take Jermaine on tour with him? I thought Soul Man was excellent and I could see Jermaine being a front act for Blake even if he goes the R&B route. Country is the new R&B. Lionel Ritchie is doing a country album so maybe Jermaine will follow that path.
Good for Jermaine! I'm very happy for him. He's a very good singer and seems like a nice guy.
In a way, I think both Jermaine and Juliet are winners. Jermaine probably needed "the win" more. There's only so much his coach, Blake, could do to promote/help him in the future. Their music genres are just SO different.
OTOH, Ceelo already said he plans to continue working with Juliet and.. who knows? .... maybe with his help, she'll finally succeed this time (whereas she's failed with several record deals before).
So, huge kudos to them both. And ... Chris and Tony were great too. Hope they all do well.
This was NOT what I expected at ALL. Lyndsey Parker's blog will be a must-read, because she kept saying that the chances of Jermaine winning were so freaking low.
ugh. 2 years in a row that the most mainstream, least interesting performer (with admittedly a very good voice, compared to Javier's awesome excellent voice last year) won. I thought for sure Lucca would be in the top 2.
I really, really liked Chris' trio with Katrina and Lyndsey. It was a weird little arrangement but it worked, and Chris showed more personality than he has all season. Would love to see them tour together.
Jamar getting asked to 2 finalists' songs - not bad!
Jordis That was a terrible song choice, both for her and for Tony! It was painful hearing him not quite reach that higher "GO you own way" every single chorus
The Voice seems to have bought Beatles tunes in bulk this year, along with Adele's entire 21 album.
Purrfect for the win!
WTF ??? Jermaine ??? Really ???
I thought Juliet had it in the bag really, she's THAT amazing. Sad for her
But Jermaine ? He's dull to me. I can't even remember one of his songs from this season. Still he's better than Tony MouseClub with a voice like ... well he doesn't have a particularly good voice, but his personality strikes me as interesting.
Ok why all the hate against Adam ? He wants to win, he did that last year, this year's Blake's turn to win. Both are amazing at coaching. Adam can be a little dicator but it works and it's interesting and not boring. Blake probably is the best coach of the lot.
Cee-Lo and Xtina are divas. Funny divas but divas still. Cee-Lo has learned a lot from last year's experience and it showed in how he produced his team this year.
I didn't see anything new about how Xtina worked.
Yes, she did. She's just finished recording an album.
Purrfect was the star of the show, imo. I hope the cat has a multi-year contract.
