We”re here at the end of the road for this cycle of “The Voice”. NBC looked into it, but it couldn”t find a way to extend the season any further. (Lord knows the one-hour repeat hour before the finale proper demonstrates how badly this network is milking this franchise.) But that”s all for the best, as the outcome tonight looks pretty much preordained. I went on record saying this last night, but I”ll once again reiterate that it”s Cassadee Pope”s contest to lose at this point. Assuming they stagger the eliminations, we should have Pope and Terry McDermott standing alone in the final moments before the champion is crowned.
9:16 p.m. Wow, Rudy Parris has a future in a KISS cover band. Dude is a vocal dead ringer for Gene Simmons. Bryan Keith is less comfortable in this milieu, but Amanda Brown and Michaela Paige slide right in the song”s vibe. Aw. I miss at least half of these people. I”ll let you guess which two.
10:10 p.m. It’s night and day when McDermott gets hold of a song he can actually sing. Unlike the David/Robinson combo, these two actually look to be enjoying each other’s company. Can’t wait to Pope to just hug Avril Lavigne for the duration of their upcoming duet.
