Adam Levine says goodbye to Amanda BrownAdam Levine had one of the strongest teams this "Voice" season, and with contestants like fiery rock-mama powerhouse Amanda Brown and artsy indie girl Melanie Martinez in his camp, it looked like he had a real chance of repeating his Season 1 victory. But all that changed this Tuesday, when in one fell swoop, both Amanda and Melanie were voted out of the competition--leaving Adam (like Christina Aguilera last week) without a team.Read More »from ‘Voice’ Top 6 Results: Another Coach Knocked Out Of The Running

Blake Shelton's "Not-So-Family Christmas" special aired Monday night--in a brilliant but obvious bit of NBC synergy, right after Monday's "Voice." But while Blake exhibited some excellent comedic timing (particularly during his "Just-Like-The-Voice Chair" fake infomercial), there was one special guest who upstaged (and eventually outsang) him: his longtime pal and onetime "Voice" mentor, Kelly Clarkson.
Since "it's 2012, it's television, and people are singing," the Original Idol naturally assumed that Blake's holiday special was some sort of newfangled singing competition--and so she came to compete, and she came to WIN. And she did a great job. If those phone numbers scrolling at the bottom of the screen had been real, I totally would have block-texted for her.Read More »from Watch: Kelly Clarkson’s Winning Performance On Blake Shelton’s Christmas Special

Blake Shelton's "Not-So-Family Christmas" special aired Monday night--in a brilliant but obvious bit of NBC synergy, right after Monday's "Voice"--and I have to say, if and when Blake takes a hiatus from "The Voice," he ought to consider a career in comedy instead of country. He exhibited surprisingly superb comedic timing, no doubt honed from months of wittily bantering with Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and Cee Lo Green. And one of my favorite funny skits from his special was his infomercial, for the must-have gift for any "Voice" fan on anyone's holiday shopping list: the "Blake Shelton's Just-Like-The-Voice Chair."
I just wish this wasn't a skit. I kind of want one of these! Dang you, fake 555 phone numbers!Read More »from Blake Shelton’s “Just-Like-The-Voice” Chair: The Holiday Gift For The TV Fan That Has Everything!

This Monday on "The Voice," the top six contestants (two apiece on Team Cee Lo, Team Blake, and Team Adam) each performed two songs: one pick of their own, and one coach's pick. Meanwhile, the team-less Christina Aguilera just sat around, fanning herself dramatically, singing Fiona Apple songs without provocation, and picking on poor Melanie Martinez.
Oh, and Christina joined the show's obvious pet cause and pimped Cassadee Pope shamelessly--basically prematurely declaring Cassadee the Season 3 champion, while Cassadee's coach, Blake Shelton, smiled smugly. But does Cassadee really already have this competition all sewn up? There were many other stellar performances this week, so I think it's still anybody's game. Anybody, that is, besides poor Melanie Martinez. Sigh.Read More »from ‘The Voice’ Top 6 Recap: Picks, Pans, And Pope-Pimping

As "The Voice" and "The X Factor" continue apace, with their respective finales now less than three weeks away, the eliminations just keep getting tougher. And while the cut that personally went deepest for me last week was that of absolutely fabulous "Voice" showman Cody Belew, the one that felt ickiest was that of "The X Factor's" Vino Alan, who was so blatantly thrown under the bus, he may as well go ahead and get some tire marks tattooed on his face now.Read More »from It’s Been Real: The Week In Reality Rocks Ending Nov. 30
