the vocie after party

The Voice comes to an end next week with either Jermaine Paul (Team Blake), Tony Lucca (Team Adam), Juliet Simms (Team Cee Lo) or Chris Mann (Team Christina) walking away as the winner.

We’re well aware of what the final four are up to.  But what about some of our favorite second season singers who have come and gone?  On Wednesday (May 9) we’ll all get the chance to catch up with a big bunch of them.

More than a dozen former contestants from this season are coming together for what’s being billed as “The After Party” show.  The singers will be taking to the stage for a special show at Saint Rocke, just outside of Los Angeles.

The event will not only allow fans to reconnect with some of their favorites, it will also allow the performers to keep building the bonds they formed while on the show.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 10

The Voice

Let’s catch up with Team Blake!

Last week on The Voice was an emotional time for Coach Blake Shelton and the contestants with two eliminations.

RaeLynn, Jordis, Erin, and Jermaine took the stage last Monday giving us some great performances. At the end of the show, however, Blake had to make an elimination live on the spot. He decided to let the previous rounds’ votes dictate the outcome and let Jordis go home. That left RaeLynn, Erin, and Jermaine to compete for America’s votes.

On last Tuesday’s results show, it was announced that Jermaine was the highest vote-getter for Team Blake. RaeLynn and Erin were in jeopardy and both had to perform for their life. It was a tough decision for Blake, but he chose to save Erin.

And then there were two….

Tune in next Monday on NBC at 8/7c to support Jermaine & Erin. Go Team Blake!

RaeLynn Goes Live, Spends Sunday Online With Fans

After last week’s live show performance on The Voice that earned her a spot in the show’s Top 16, RaeLynn decided to a little live show of her own.  We’re not talking about TV or even a club gig.  This was simply RaeLynn spending part of her Easter Sunday connecting with her fans in a webcast.

Say what you will about the spunky 17-year-old from Baytown, TX, but she sure has fun.  She took the chat in every conceivable direction:  From her love of “boy bands” (especially One Direction and singer Harry Styles) to being disappointed in hearing Jake Owen got engaged (even though she said the 30-year-old Owen is pretty old) to talking about one of her friends getting a boyfriend.  She may be on her way to being a big star, but she’s still got a lot of kid in her.  That’s a good thing.

She sang little snippets of songs that fans requested and even gave some of them a huge thrill by calling them.  She even made a few surprise calls to some of her friends from The Voice so fans could hear from those people, too.  Unfortunately for her, one of those calls kind of backfired.  When she called former Team Blake member Jordan Rager, the fellow country signer didn’t know who he was talking with because he didn’t have RaeLynn’s number saved in his phone.   Oops!

As for answering questions, RaeLynn tried her best, but it was hard for her (or anyone watching) to keep up with the fast and furious flow from her fans.  Below are some of the her thoughts on various topics and answers to questions:

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 8

The Voice

And there you have it…

The Voice‘s battle rounds are now complete, and six members from each team are moving on to the live shows.

As we already know, Team Blake consists of RaeLynn, Jordis, Charlotte Sometimes, Erin Willett, Jermaine Paul… and tonight Naia Kete was added to the group!

Coach Blake Shelton paired Naia up against country boy, Jordan Rager. The amazingly talented Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert were there once again to help mentor the team.

For the battle, Naia and Jordan performed Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” As the coaches pointed out, we have seen better from both contestants and their full skills were not on display this round. When it was time for Blake to make a decision, he decided to advance Naia to the live shows.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 7

The Voice

The battle rounds are coming to an end on The Voice, and Team Blake is almost complete!

This week, we saw Jermaine Paul up against ALyX and Erin Willett versus Gwen Sebastian. Two of our favorite girls, Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert, were back to mentor and assist the team. Jermain and Erin got some help from Kelly, while ALyX and Gwen worked with Miranda.

Jermaine vs. ALyX

Jermaine and ALyX performed Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” for their battle. Both did a great job and it was a solid fight, but Coach Blake Shelton decided to go with Jermaine.

Jermaine is a seasoned performer with such professionalism and killer voice. He had me the whole round, and I felt like I was at his own concert.

Congratulations to Jermaine! We can’t wait to see you next round. Also, good luck to ALyX! We are sure she will have success.

RaeLynn: Having Miranda Lambert Wasn’t An Advantage

Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert on "The Voice"

The Twitter world was all up in arms this week over the first two members of Team Blake going to the live shows. Fans on Twitter took notice that both RaeLynn and Jordis were coached by the wife of Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert. The two eliminated artists – Adley Stump and Brian Fuente, were both coached by Kelly Clarkson. During a teleconference yesterday, RaeLynn admits that she feels that having Miranda as her adviser during the first Battle Round episode that aired on Monday didn’t give her the edge over Adley.

“You know, I don’t think I did because Adley’s just as amazing as – I mean all of us on this show are – we’re all amazing. I think it was awesome that he brought in my inspiration to work with me and that such a blessing. But I don’t think it gave me -it made me more confident to have, you know, Miranda behind me and have her mentoring me. Knowing she was behind me made me 10 times more excited to do the battle, but I don’t think it really gave me an edge because she got mentored by Kelly Clarkson who she absolutely adores. So I think it was, you know, we both did amazing. I love Adley and Adley is so amazing and Adley’s going to great things.”

RaeLynn also says that her friends have nicknamed her the “Little Miranda,” and explains how Miranda is such an inspiration to the singer:

“You know, me and Miranda are a lot alike. I’ve had lots of girls message me on Twitter and call me little Miranda and it’s really funny because she’s inspired me so much.  I think me and Miranda are very similar in a lot of ways because we’re both really country. I can’t be anything but country. I can’t sing anything but country. I mean my whole team laughs at me when I talk, but it’s awesome because they love me, but, it’s just me and Miranda are a lot alike in a lot of ways but our voices are a little different. I think my voice is more of an old country sound but, you know, she’s inspired me and I love her rock country sound and that’s what I ultimately want to be. I think we do sound similar but we’re very different also so it’s really cool.”

RaeLynn has advanced to the live rounds which start in April.  She’ll be up for fan votes to decide which team has the best voice in America.  See who else makes the final Team Blake for the live rounds next week when The Voice airs on NBC at 8 pm EST.

The Voice: Team Blake Recap – Week 5

The Voice

With all teams complete, The Voice is officially in the second phase of the competition!

The battle rounds began last night, and our Team Blake had to send two members home. It was a fight between Adley Stump vs. RaeLynn and Brian Fuente vs. Jordis.

Joining Team Blake as mentors are music superstars, Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson. Miranda and Kelly are each in charge of six members. This week, Miranda worked with RaeLynn and Jordis, while Kelly helped out Adley and Brian. None of the team members knew that they were being mentored by Miranda and Kelly. Needless to say, they were all very excited when they walked into the room and saw them. I loved getting to watch Miranda and Kelly work with the team. They are both so unbelievably talented, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth. Not to mention, you cannot beat their first-hand experience when it comes to singing competitions.

RaeLynn vs. Adley

Blake chose Tom Petty’s, “Free Fallin’” for RaeLynn and Adley’s battle. The girls both sounded great and Adley has some vocal range. Unfortunately, Blake had to make the difficult decision of sending someone home. In the end, he decided to have RaeLynn continue forward in the competition.

Via her blog on The Voice official website, Naia shared:

When I started singing, Blake turned around right away! I couldn’t believe it! I was in! Really? Then, towards the end of the song, Cee Lo turned also! TWO coaches!? AMAZING! I just felt so blessed and happy.
