The Voice: Teen Singer Jacquie Lee Stuns the Coaches

Originally posted 11/06/2013 08:35AM

She's the youngest performer on The Voice this season, but Jacquie Lee's performance on the second night of live shows Tuesday showed she just might be the one to beat.

The 16-year-old New Jersey high school student on coach Christina Aguilera's team, closed out the evening with an electrifying version of Nina Simone's "I Put a Spell on You."

The jaw-dropping performance awed fellow coach Cee Lo Green, whose team also performed Tuesday, and even left him a little angry.

"Oh my God, Jacquie. Damn," he exclaimed once the roaring crowd quieted down. "That was the absolute best. [It was] like the past and the present and you are most certainly the future."

The Voice's first live show featured a slew of strong singers on Monday but Tessanne Chin turned in the performance of the night.

The Jamaican singer, 28, amped up the glamour with red nails and lips, as she took Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross" to a fierce level.

As the night's last performer, Chin (who'd been Cliff's backup singer) wiped away tears as her coach, Adam Levine, and the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

The Voice: Battle Rounds End With the Best Duets of the Season

Originally posted 10/23/2013 09:25AM

The Voice's battle rounds wrapped up Tuesday night with a trio of commanding performances that show the competition is still any singer's game.

The evening kicked off on a patriotic note when coach Cee Lo Green paired military veterans Jonny Gray of Austin, Texas, and Shawn Smith of Utica, N.Y., on "Refugee" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Green chose the song in part as a nod to their service – rocker Gray, 29, completed a tour of duty for the Air Force, while country singer Smith, 32, served in the Army and lost 80 percent of his hearing in his right ear when he stepped on an improvised explosive device. The pair delivered an impassioned version of the song that caught the attention of all four coaches.

Blake Shelton said he agreed with a female audience member who yelled, "That was hot!" while Adam Levine said, "I believe every single word of what you guys did."

Green ultimately chose to keep Gray, praising his "frenetic" energy onstage. "You become something undeniable," he explained.

The men dominated the second week of battle rounds on The Voice Monday night as rock and pop music took center stage during several powerful duets, including a credible cover of one coach's own hit.

Christina Aguilera had her soulful team members Josh Logan and Michael Lynch perform a rendition of "Harder to Breathe," a 2002 Maroon 5 hit written by frontman Adam Levine for his group's first record. Levine seemed entertained by their confident performance as Cee Lo Green pointed out the similarities to the original.

"You almost sounded identical," Green told Logan, a 33-year-old father from Manchester, N.H., who began singing as a teen alongside his mother, who was a karaoke DJ.

The Voice contestants brought their A-game to the second night of battle rounds Tuesday. Yet it was coach Cee Lo Green who provided the most drama of the night – thanks to a single button push.

Green firmly hit his button in the final moments of the show to save soul singer Monika Leigh, a Team Blake Shelton member who had just lost her battle against Louisiana father Ray Boudreaux.

The two delivered a powerful version of "Some Kind of Wonderful," but Shelton – who received some help from guest mentor Cher during rehearsals – ultimately chose Boudreaux, 25.

Call them Baby Beyoncés.

Two teenage vocalists tore up the stage diva-style Monday night on The Voice, delivering an impassioned and mature version of Beyoncé's ballad "Listen."

Their youth and sheer talent on the first night of the show's battle rounds brought coach Christina Aguilera to tears.

"If I was up and coming on the scene I would be scared of you guys right now," Aguilera told Houston's Amber Nicole, 17, and San Diego's Timyra-Joi, 15.

In the final night of Season 5's blind auditions, the coaches picked the last singers for their teams. And Green used his soulful charm on Tamara Chauniece, the daughter of two ministers who recorded her first gospel record at 11.

The 23-year-old Texan charmed both Green and Christina Aguilera with a lilting version of Beyonce's "1 + 1."

Christina Aguilera is sitting pretty.

She's back in the red chair for season 5 of The Voice and says she feels sexier than ever.

"If I have to choose between working out and spending time with my son after a hard day, it's not even a question," Aguilera tells November's Redbook, on newsstands Oct. 15.

A stressed-out single mom and a former contestant seeking redemption scored the two four-chair swivels of the night Tuesday as The Voice's coaches inched closer to completing their teams during the fourth night of blind auditions.

The coaches' powers of persuasion – and sharp elbows – were on full display during the final showstopping performance of the night when Ashley DuBose, a single mother/programmer analyst from St. Paul, Minn., arguably outshone Rihanna while singing the Grammy winner's hit "Diamonds."

"Your voice cuts like a razor through this entire place," coach Adam Levine told the 23-year-old. "Those are the voices that make it real far on this show."
