Did ‘The Voice’ Accidently Reveal Two Of The Finalists Within The First Few Minutes Of The Results Show [SPOILER]
If you watched NBC’s ‘The Voice’ last night (6/11) you are well aware of the three performers that are going into the finals. If it’s still on your ‘to watch’ list, then stop right here, because I will be talking about the finalists below the break. I’d like to know if you noticed what I caught last night.
As the show begins, Carson Daily does his usual patter with the judges; Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton. At this point in the contest we have five remaining contestants and, as far as we are concerned, it’s anybodies race to win.
From Team Blake there’s; The Swon Brothers and Danielle Bradbery along with Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel, Team Shakira’s Sasha Allen and Team Adam’s Amber Carrington.
The voting is tabulated from three sources; Calling in, texting and iTunes downloads. Here is the rub, Fast forward over to the second segment of the video below and get right before 10:30 minutes into it. Usher is wrapping up his thought’s on his sole team member, Michelle.
As Carson moves his attention to Blake, he makes the following statement,
‘Your artists’ hit the #1, #2, #3 and #4 spot on the the iTunes download chart…..’
Simple math would dictate, that since his only two performers (The Swon Brothers & Danielle Bradbery) hold the top four spots on iTunes, then they’ve already got a huge leg up on their fellow competitors. Then, add in that Michelle Chamuel was the first person announced as a finalist. With those two nuggets of info, the rest of the show was pretty much lacking any suspense.
Take a look at the video and let me know your thoughts? Do you think ‘The Voice’ unintentionally revealed two-thirds of the finalists before the show really got underway?
