The Voice Recap: Mathai and Cheesa Axed
With The Voice semifinals just around the corner, Mathai from Team [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adam Levine[/lastfm] and Cheesa from Team [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ce Lo Green[/lastfm] were the latest to be sent home after last night’s eliminations.
Last night, America opted to save the boys which left the girls from Team Adam and Team Cee Lo on the chopping block. Mathai duked it out with Katrina Parker, while Cheesa competed against Juliet Simms.
Judging by Levine’s less-than-pleased reaction to Mathai’s rendition of Carrie Underwood’s “Cowboy Casanova”, her fate was ultimately sealed. Katrina Parker, on the other hand, received praises from both [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] for her performance, naming her “the best singer on [Adam's] team”. It is clear who the favorite is.
Things didn’t look good for Cheesa either after belting out a pitchy “Already Gone”. The powerhouse’s performance didn’t a stand a chance to Juliet Simm’s intense version of “Torn”. Green, not surprisingly, chose Simms to move on to the semifinals.
With eight contestants total (two from each team) competing in the semifinals, who do you think will be America’s favorite next week?
