'The Voice': Blake Shelton to Perform; Cyndi Lauper, Kid Cudi to Duet with Season 1 Finalists
NBC’s The Voice intends to kick off its semifinals week with a season one reunion and Blake Shelton’s first television performance of his new single.
A week after coach Adam Levine and Maroon 5 debuted their new single – which then became the highest weekly download total by a group ever – Shelton will perform his new single, “Over,” for the first time on TV on Monday’s show.
The teams will also combine for two group numbers: Teams Adam and Cee Lo Green will come together to sing “All These Things I’ve Done” by The Killers, while Teams Blake and Christina join together on Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory.”
On Tuesday, first season finalists will return for superstar duets: Dia Frampton will perform with Kid Cudi; Beverly Mclellan will perform with Cyndi Lauper; and Vicci Martinez will reunite on-stage with her former coach, Green.
Also, season one champ Javier Colon will perform his single, “A Drop In The Ocean,” from his album, Come Through For You.
The eight semifinalists will perform live Monday at 8 p.m. and the results show airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
