Prepare To Party: Former Contestants From “The Voice” Staging Special Show

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‘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.

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.
