'The Voice:' Did Christina Aguilera get knocked out of the competition?
And another two bite the dust! After tonight, The Voice is officially down to its final 6 and I have to say, I think tonight's elimination was the hardest of all. With a group of such talented artists, it's difficult to see to see anyone go home. And I can only imagine how the coaches were feeling, especially Christina Aguilera, who only had one remaining contestants!
But after what seemed like a very long, nervewracking hour, we finally learned America's choice. So who made the cut and did Xtina get thrown out of the game?
The answer is....YES! After tonight, Aguilera is the only coach to officially have no team members left as Dez Duron got sent home. Though viewers didn't get a chance to hear her reaction, I can only imagine that Xtina is not too happy about being the first judge to get knocked out of the competition...especially after her begging and pleading yesterday! Still, I can't say I'm all that surprised. Duron is talented and obviously a hit with the ladies, but there are better singers on the show.
Which is also pretty much the same way I feel about Team Cee Lo's Cody Belew, the other contestant to get eliminated tonight. Though Belew has a sparkling personality and amazing stage presence, I don't know that he was up to par vocally with some of the other singers on the show.
I'm sad to see them go, but I'm SO relieved to see that Trevin Hunte, Melanie Martinez, and Nicholas David made it into the top 6. They are my favorites of the remaining 6, by far, although the other three (Amanda Brown, Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope) also inarguably deserve their spot in the competition.
Eek! It's hard to believe that by this time next week we will be down to the final FOUR and that much closer to knowing the winner. At the rate the show is going, I think this might be the most intense finals yet!
