Anyone who put their money on Cee Lo dressing like Kermit the Frog on Tuesday’s (November 27) episode of The Voice is in luck! We really should have seen it coming: the man’s last name is Green. In a Kermit-goes-disco ensemble, Cee Lo joins the Muppet at the piano for a performance of “Bein’ Green.” It’s half-adorable, half-concerning, and completely unclear if Cee Lo knows that Kermit is a puppet, and not a peer, during his earnest conversation with the frog. Even Fozzy shakes his head.
Whether any of the remaining contestants will reach the level of superstardom that Kermit has remains to be seen, but six of them do move closer to becoming The Voice. Before that, though, all eight perform — and even take a field trip — while awaiting their fates during the results show.
Amanda Brown and Trevin Hunte grace the stage for a performance of Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night.” Though there are many back up dancers busting moves all over the stage, it’s impossible to pay attention to anything other than Trevin and Amanda’s talent.
Cody Belew, Melanie Martinez, Nicholas David and Terry McDermott then perform Plain White T’s‘ “Rhythm Of Love,” and it makes us want to invite them over for a campfire singalong. Even though Terry is blatantly rolling his eyes as the song kicks off, everyone is so fun and upbeat! Except, of course, Melanie. She could make “Oh Happy Day” sound like a femme-break up anthem.
Up next, Carson Daly takes the kids out for a field trip to his morning DJ gig on Los Angeles’ Amp Radio. It’s Carson’s big moment, and the Top 8 play along nicely — kind of like when a kooky aunt shows you her valuable Beanie Baby collection. Dez Duron even refers to Carson as “the best of the best” (having apparently never heard of Ryan Seacrest).
Dez and Cassadee Pope take on Ne-Yo and Rihanna’s “Hate That I Love You” in the last performance of the evening. Despite an utter lack of dance moves, they have onstage chemistry. In fact, the two of them should get married and have really attractive kids to continue their legacy in Season 20 of The Voice.
Putting marriage and babies aside for a moment, it’s time to see how the Top 8 fared with America’s votes:
Making the cut are Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott (Who reached #1 on the iTunes rock chart with his cover of “Over”) from Team Blake Shelton; Melanie Martinez (who reached #1 on the alternative chart on iTunes with her cover of “Too Close”) and Amanda Brown from Team Adam Levine; and Nicholas David and Trevin Hunte from Team Cee Lo.
Spirited Cody Belew has bammed his last bam on the stage of The Voice, and Dez Duron will need to find another medium to make the ladies scream. Maybe a Magic Mike sequel? In any case, the eliminations leave Adam, Blake and Cee Lo with two contestants left each…and Christina Aguilera with three weeks left in her Voice contract and zero contestants to coach.
The Top 6 perform next Monday, December 3, as The Voice nears its December 18 finale. So do you agree with the votes? Who do you think is going to make it all the way? Let us know in the comments below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter!
