‘The Voice’ Finals Opens With Sandy Hook Tribute – Cassadee Pope Cries, Terry McDermott Rocks, Nicholas David Gets Funky [VIDEOS]
‘The Voice‘ kicked off it’s final night with a touching tribute to the victims in the Sandy Hook tragedy. Coaches and contestants joined together for ‘Hallelujah’ as they all held the names of those killed in the shootings.
Cassadee Pope & Terry McDermott from Blake Shelton‘s team and Nicholas David from team Cee Lo, each sang three songs. They performed with their coaches, reprise their breakout moment of the season and sang a new song.
Cassadee Pope chose to re-sing ‘Over You’ and sounded just as good’ if not better the second time around. It mas a touching moment in light of the recent events in Connecticut that has left America with a ‘heavy heart‘ as Blake Shelton said. He’s glad the song he wrote with Miranda can ‘be part of the healing process because music helps mend hearts.’
Blake & Cassadee rocked out to ‘Steve McQueen’ and she closed the show with the most beautiful version of ‘Cry’ from Faith Hill I’ve ever heard. See all her performances below.
Speaking of sounding good if not better. Terry McDermott performed ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’ a second time and sounded so much better, Blake even mentioned it, like he was reading my mind. The two teamed up for ‘Dude Looks Like a Lady’ and it sounded like Terry outsang Blake. His third song was his son’s favorite, ‘Broken Wings.’ Check out all three below.
Nicholas opened the show with a bang, or should I say on fire. He sang a medley of ‘Great Balls of Fire’ and ‘Fire.’ I don’t know the song showed off his vocal ability but it did show his fun side. He resang ‘Lean on Me’ and played that ‘Funky Music’ with Cee Lo.
Although I love Nicholas, his soul and his voice, I don’t think he did enough to win. I think it’ll come down to Cassadee & Terry and I’m so torn I voted for both.
Tune in tonight at 9 on NBC to see who is crowed the winner. Who do you think it’ll be?
