Vocal Microphones for Finale
Well folks, after weeks of Blinds, Battles, Battles, more Battles and seemingly endless Instant Saves, we've finally arrived. This week gave us three coaches, three contestants and too many duets to count! Now let's down a couple of energy drinks and chat final performances on NBC's “The Voice.”
1. Coach wardrobe.
Adam Levine is going to a “Grease” sing-along. Shakira is wearing a shirt similar to one my mom wore in the '80's in Rio (it was her “fancy shirt”). Usher is dressed like he's about to watch “The Voice” from home, and Blake Shelton is wearing his version of a country tuxedo.
2. Déjà vu
Each finalist was asked to revisit a previous song from earlier in the season (chosen by America). Team Adam's Christina Grimmie performed a more aggressive version of her blind audition song, “Wrecking Ball, ” against the backdrop of a light up spider web. Team Usher's Josh Kaufman did a spirited rendition of the battle selection that effectively changed his trajectory (and team), “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, ” and Team Blake's Jake Worthington delivered a subdued rendition of his blind audition song, “Don't Close Your Eyes, ” with his heart on his sleeve and a guitar in hand. These retreads are always tricky, because it's a little “been there, done that, ” but I'd have to give this round to Josh for making what was previously a duet a pretty hot solo.

3. Mixed messages
I love the song “Every Breath You Take, ” and Usher and Josh Kaufman both sounded great on it, but it was kind of a creepy, confusing choice for a duet. I get what Usher was trying to say in terms of message. He's going to keep his eye on Josh and continue helping him whatever the outcome, but I don't know that awkwardly stalking each other around the stage to the strains of a stalker-y song was the best vehicle for that message.
