Live blogging The Voice: 5/24/11

I know. I'm a day late. It's okay. I'm still going to live blog this kind of terrible show. Also, since I'm watching this online instead of as it airs, I've given up on time-stamping.

Blah blah blah flashbacks.

Christina chooses Raquel and Julia. They both look like high school students. And they get to sing "Only Girl in the World." Excellent. Also, Raquel is so tiny.

Oh. It turns out they're both babies.

I'm totally jelly that they have the range to sing this song because I love this song. Also, "S&M." It was stuck in my head all last night when I kept waking up. This terrible anecdote is way better than the advice sessions with Christina and Sia (who I'm still all "who?" about).

Pitch problems in rehearsal!

Performance: Raquel is totally off-pitch. Okay, she's doing better now. Nope. She's flat again. Julia is holding things together a little bit.

These harmonies are the worst.

Cee Lo, that is falseness, Raquel was the worst. Blake, you are correct, Julia was better. Adam, false, they are not even. Raquel is totally cute, but FLAT. Christina, who are you going to choose????

Uggggh. Raquel wins. Lame.


Alright, Blake chooses Dia and Sarah B. to sing "Can't Hurry Love." Interesting combination. I'm just glad Blake is willing to shake things up with differing voices and random-ass oldies songs.

Sarabee makes my vocal folds sympathy hurt. And she's a little too crazy with the vocal runs. Dia is the cutest and has sweet, pure tone. My preference is pretty obvious.

God bless Blake Shelton for telling Sarabee to calm down with the over-singing.

Performance: Dia is a little is a little scoopy. It's kind of obnoxious.

Sarabee is Janice Joplin-ing. It's kind of obnoxious.

People keep talking about the odd pairing.

Reba telling Dia she is awesome for "staying true to herself." I love Reba.

Blake is so real. And he chooses Dia because Sarabee was so crazypants with the vocals.


Adam's turn! Rebecca and Devon are chosen to sing "Creep" by Radiohead. Were these kids even born when this song was released? Oh, apparently Rebecca knows this song. It probably seeped into her brain the moment she put in those purple highlights.

Devon is not doing well. Buck up, little camper!

Apparently Rebecca is a folk singer who lives in her car. Is she Jewel?

Performance: Devon found the melody. Way to go, buddy!

Omg, these two are so cute together. And their harmonies sound nice.


Blake is telling him to never separate these two. Agreed. Christina says Devon stole the show. Cee Lo also likes Devon because he doesn't look like his voice. Adam is swearing adorably.

Devon wins! Awww. He'll need to find another chick to have cute baby-chemistry with.


Cee Lo picks the sisters Tori and Taylor Thompson versus Kelsey Rey. Nice name. I'm expecting Kelsey to OWN. "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield. LOL.

Gosh, these sisters are probably going to suck, but at least they don't have some sort of "I'm judged because I'm so beautiful" complex like Kelsey.

"Sisterly love amongst them." -Cee Lo

Performance: It's like Forever 21 threw up on the stage.

Kelsey sounds pretty good. The sisters actually aren't that bad.

Awww, they all three have harmonies. I just got goosebumps. This is embarrassing. Why is Natasha Bedingfeld so damn catchy?

Kelsey is so bland. I might have to side with the sisters.

Adam is overwhelmed by cuteness. Agreed. Blake says the sisters sound better than the audition (true) and that Kelsey was the more seasoned singer and would choose her. Christina goes with the sisters.

Cee Lo took off his sunglasses dramatically and then put them back on. The Thompson sisters win! I'm kind of happy for them.

Previews: Final battle round next week before they go LIVE. "Sun Going Down on Me"--yes! And apparently the season's most surprising moment. Side-eye.

I just hope to enjoy some more heart-meltingly adorable moments like this:


  1. 1. I love that Natasha Bedingfield song and play it on my guitar sometimes.

    2. How can you not remember Sia from her most memorable song--that DEVESTATING tune from the finale of "Six Feet Under"?!

  2. 1. Hilarious.
    2. I realized that the other day, and I was all, OH! THAT chick. But it doesn't really explain how she's Christina Aguilera's advisor. Seriously. Sia actually has some dynamics in her voice.
