The Voice star Adam Levine was pilloried last week when, after the expulsion of his singers, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, he blurted out, “I hate this country." His comments caused the right-wing call-out machine to rumble into action, denouncing Levine as an enemy of freedom on the magnitude of a Michael Moore or Alec Baldwin.
Adam Levine is firing back at complaints over his "I hate this country" remark on Tuesday's edition of The Voice. The judge muttered the comment during a tense elimination round in which three of his contestants -- Amber Carrington, Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill -- were left standing along with Holly Tucker from Blake Shelton's team.
The top eight pulled out all the stops -- or rather, props -- for their amped-up performances on The Voice on Monday night, which included fire, feathers and blinged-out cowboy boots. Usher even donned a pair of black glasses for two hours to channel his remaining contestant.
Tuesday night featured an especially emotional episode of The Voice. Not only did the evening call for another double elimination, it also kicked off with a dedication to those affected by Monday's deadly tornado in Oklahoma.
As the pressure intensifies on The Voice, the top ten contestants took the opportunity to shed another emotional layer and showcase their versatility. Guest mentors Sheryl Crow, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum, Pharrell Williams and Cee Lo Green returned to offer the coaches a second opinion on the potentially game-changing performances -- some of which turned out much better than others on Monday night.
It's official: The Voice is bringing back its original lineup of coaches for season five.
It was announced Friday that Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who have been on the NBC singing competition since its inception, will be reunited in the red chairs with Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Greenwhen The Voice returns in the fall.
After a night of heated performances and risky choices, two singers were sent home on Tuesday night, leaving 10 singers to vie for the winning title. (Thankfully, everyone stayed cool, since the air conditioning worked just fine.)
Everyone was feeling the heat on Monday night’s episode of The Voice -- mostly because the studio’s air-conditioning was busted for the first half-hour of the taping. “I can’t hear! It’s so hot in here, the sound doesn’t carry!” joked Blake Shelton, as Carson Daly rolled up his sleeves and Usher momentarily shed his layers to stay cool in a tank top.
Adam Levine's NBC footprint is about to grow larger.
The Voice coach and Maroon 5 frontman has inked a one-year first-look development deal at NBC with his longtime manager-turned-producing partner, Jordan Feldstein. Together, the pair will create both scripted and alternative programming to serve as series and specials for the network.
The second night of live shows brought members of Blake Shelton and Shakira's teams to the stage to sing live in front of an audience and their coaches. Four members of each team performed.
Viewers will select two of the contestants to save, and the coaches will vote on the third save. One contestant from each team will be sent home. Those results will be revealed on a special Wednesday episode.
It’s time for the playoffs on NBC’s The Voice: live tapings, elaborate sets, big costumes and even bigger hairdos. As each of the coaches loosen their reins on their four remaining contestants, America votes for their top two teammates, while each mentor can save one. In the end, one singer from each team will be sent home.
