The third and final returning artist, Chris Mann, has a couple albums apparently. He's a former opera singer, so he has that Josh Groban thing going. His single is called "Roads," and it is totally the kind of music your mom listens to. Buy her Chris Mann's new Christmas album, she will enjoy it.
Next, Carson asks Nicholas if it's hard to be away from his family. Nicholas says basically that, yes, it sucks. Well, Nicholas, you might be going home soon. The second finalist is Cassadee Pope. I don't agree with the way this is being done. It should be one member of each team standing there, just for fairness. Maybe they knew Cee Lo could consolidate his feedback, or maybe they were planning ahead for this upcoming duet.
Back up in the Skybox, Christina is holding Adam Levine and Season 2 finalist Tony Lucca hostage. Why are either of them up there? Tony Lucca is on Adam's record label now. Adam has never been up in the Skybox before, and declares it "awesome." What a night.
Singing Mariah Carey's "Hero" before one of them is swiftly eliminated, it's Nicholas David and Trevin Hunte. What an awful song choice for Nicholas, or anyone, really. This song is tired; let it rest. Nicholas has never sounded more awkward. I love these guys, and this duet is making me hate them/everything.
Now that we want them both to be eliminated, it's the moment of truth for Trevin and Nicholas. Adam tells them how cool it is that he has grown to love them over the course of the show, when initially he didn't turn around for either of them. Shut up, Adam, that suit almost made me forget you're a douche. Christina reminds them that she didn't win Star Search and Jennifer Hudson didn't win American Idol, but Christina deserved an Oscar for her performance in Burlesque. Everyone has kind words to say, as they stretch this moment out. Carson didn't ask enough probing questions, I guess, and neither did Christina Milian in the Skybox.
The last finalist will be announced as The Voice cuts into the crucial moments of Take It All, a new game show for garbage people. The third finalist is Nicholas David, which I'm happy about, and think is right. I'm sad for Trevin, though, who is perhaps the most darling of all contestants this season. He should not have sung "Wind Beneath My Wings," though, or gone first in an hour of bullshit -- the hour preceding another hour of bullshit, greatly anticipated by garbage people everywhere. And that's how you play Take It All!
