Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 might be a big hit in today’s music world, but it turns out TheVoice coach has been holding on to a bad experience from his early days of performing, back when the group members still were paying their dues.
On Monday’s episode of The Voice, the singer told the crowd that when his band was touring with Michelle Branch, they weren’t given a dressing room while performing at Hollywood club The Roxy.
On Monday’s episode of The Voice, the remaining eight contestants performed live for America. Christina Aguilera is holding on with just one contestant -- the handsome Dez Duron -- left on her team. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton each have two team members and Cee Lo Green has three contestants remaining.
On The Voice, the Top 10 took the stage to try to win over America’s hearts once more this week. As a special treat, the coaches brought in industry heavyweights including record exec Ron Fair (who first signed Christina Aguilera), country music producer Scott Hendricks and Grammy-winning singer (and former American Idol contestant) Jennifer Hudson.
Two more contestants will be voted off by America on Tuesday’s live show.
The top 12 dwindled down to 10 on The Voice on Tuesday in the first live elimination show. Of course, it wouldn't be season three without a few extra changes.
First, though each of the four coaches brought their top three team members to this stage of the competition, the two artists with the lowest votes were sent home -- no matter which team they're on. Unlike previous seasons, the coaches are not guaranteed a contestant to root for in the two-hour finale on Dec. 18.
The battle of the network reality shows resulted in positive news for ABC and some disapointment for NBC.
ABC's Dancing With the Stars took an average of 9.2 million viewers in its two hours, from 8-10:00 pm, including a 2.2 million demo share, up five percent. Castle, the Nathan Fillion-starring mystery show, averaged seven million in the 10-11:00 pm slot, with a 2.1 share, up 11 percent. The network did have NFL preemptions in Kansas City and Pittsburgh, so final ratings are subject to adjustment.
