Live Shows - Round of 6
December 2
THE STORY SO FAR! Last week, Team Cee-Lo breathed its last as Caroline Pennell and Ray Boudreaux were sent packing by America. Matthew Schuler got the Twitter Vote of confidence, but can he succeed where past recipients have failed?
Will Champlin
Tessanne Chin
James Wolpert
Jacquie Lee
Matthew Schuler
Cole Vosbury

From here on out, Cee-Lo will have ZERO control over the outcome of the competition. And he looks a little perturbed.

Each performer will sing twice - once as a dedication and another coaches' decision. Tomorrow night, ONE person will be eliminated, the other five will make it to the semifinals.


First up, COLE VOSBURY goes from vulnerable to fun-loving after being given a new guitar and a new lease on life in the contest. We're opening the show with "Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates.

THEY SAY: Blake says that he could put it on iTunes tonight and they wouldn't have to change a thing. Cee-Lo says that he is definitely a fan and is invested in him emotionally. Adam says it's always a pleasure to hear him.

WE SAY: A good choice of song, hitting it right on the money (smirk) in tone and pitch. Cole is definitely starting the night on the right foot.

Next up, Adam picked for TESSANNE CHIN ANOTHER reggae-twinged favorite, "Redemption Song" by Bob Marley. What she loves about this song is that it exemplifies her motherland, the extremes of Jamaica.

THEY SAY: Adam says that it is impossible to take ownership of that song, but to take the flag is something powerful. Christina got lost in what she saw was a lullaby

WE SAY: Tessanne's voice is about as complex as the song itself. And the note that shakes the heavens is in full play. It is passionate and vulnerable all at once.


MATTHEW SCHULER is dedicating "Story of My Life" by One Direction to his family and friends in Pennsylvania.

THEY SAY: Christina loved the song choice, saying that he made it his own. Adam likes that he didn't try and chase 1D, but made the song his.

WE SAY: It starts out flat. The middle is flat. The ending was flat. Overall, it's all power but no passion.

Next up, WILL CHAMPLIN is dedicating "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke for his wife and baby girl.

THEY SAY: Adam thought he can play on the keys AND sing at the same time. Very courageous. Cee-Lo says he's got soul AND heart.

WE SAY: Peaked too early. Otherwise, very nice.

Still in PA, here's JAMES WOLPERT dedicating "Fell In Love With A Girl" by the White Stripes to his father, who has stood by him through thick and thin.

THEY SAY: Adam says it's never perfect, but this song was about bringing it back to simplicity of a voice. Blake thought it was just "on ten".

WE SAY: Good move going unplugged with this song. I just wish you weren't so wishy-washy with it. It sounds good, but it looks like he's trying to escape through his own orifices.


Christina is going to showcase JACQUIE LEE'S vulnerable side with her trademark belting with Janis Joplin's "Cry Baby". She is the youngest, but her fire burns the brightest. Let's hope she doesn't start second-guessing herself, otherwise, she's going to flame out.

THEY SAY: Christina is moved to take the stage to tell her how she left everything on the stage. And yes, she's that short. Cee-Lo says she can't fake that kind of funk.

WE SAY: I don't know how Jacquie keeps drawing the last spot in the lineup... but she makes the absolute most of it. For someone who doesn't know about "love", she sure has a funny way of emoting and telling the story of the song.

On top: Jacquie, Will, Tessanne, Cole
On notice: James, Matthew


COLE is back on stage to dedicate "Better Man" by James Morrison to his first love, even though it didn't work out.

THEY SAY: Blake thought it was awesome and beautiful. Cee-Lo agrees with Blake, saying it was sweeter. Christina says that he loves what he does, saying how consistent he is.

WE SAY: Simple song sung simply, venturing closely to soundalike without going full karaoke. Very good performance.

Next up, TESSANNE returns to dedicate "Unconditionally" by Katy Perry for her mom and dad.

THEY SAY: Adam thought it was a challenge of range for her to do those two songs. Blake calls her a world-class vocalist.

WE SAY: I'm beginning to see a bit of flaws from her otherwise flawless voice. She may have bitten off more than she could chew with this choice.


MATTHEW is back on stage hoping to beat back fate with "When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge.

THEY SAY: Christina thought that he was very versatile, and that he digs deep for vocals. Blake thought it was "as good as (he) ever heard him sing."

WE SAY: Infinitely better. Whether it's enough for him to beat his fate as condemned... that's on the others.

WILL has one more go, as Adam tries to challenge his range with something "really weird". It's poppy, it's country, it's electronic... It's the new one from Avicii, "Hey Brother". With a banjo.

THEY SAY: Adam says that it was cut from so many cloths, but he made it work. Blake thought it was cool.

WE SAY: Why, Adam.... WHY. He was doing so well, too. The chorus was okay, the verses were rather whiny. If he has any saving grace, it's that he's a performer.


JACQUIE says "The Voice Within" (by Christina) is the reason she got into singing... and this one is for her coach.

THEY SAY: Christina thought it was a very special song, saying that it had "so many similarities" with her at that age (give or take).

WE SAY: It would've been a lot better if she wasn't singing note for note, run for run, LIKE HER COACH. We want more Jacquie, less Christina.


We're closing the night with JAMES singing "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" by Meat Loaf. Theatre gave him a background to be a great singer (C-Note: could've fooled us). Can he end the night on a dramatic note?

THEY SAY: Adam thinks that, as sick as James is, he was amazing. Cee-Lo says that it was typical of rock opera.

WE SAY: This is the most animated that we've seen James. Which isn't saying much. But it's actually a decent performance that will get him into the semis. But JUST.

SAFE: Cole, Jacquie
TROUBLE: Tessanne, Will, James.
OUT: Matthew

I REALLY hate to say it, but history is not on Matthew's side. We'll see if the votes swing that way tomorrow.
