'The Voice' live shows began this week, and Monday's top 12 episode was literally one of the best performance nights in the series' 13-season history. So get ready for perhaps the least shady episode in 'The Day After' history!
Today, we break down the top 24's performances, assess the top 12 moving on to the live shows, and wonder aloud if Blake Shelton really is the Sexiest Man Alive.
We break down the final showdowns of the season, assess the top 20, and make our predictions and picks for which contestants might come back for a second chance.
The Voice Season 13 Knockout Rounds commenced this week, with future coach Kelly Clarkson making her Voice debut as a Key Adviser. While seemed a bit wrong to see the Original Recipe American Idol sitting in that big red chair (or hanging out on the Voice set with fellow ex-Idol Jennifer Hudson), she
Ever since her early days in the pioneering new wave band the Go-Go’s, Jane Wiedlin has been fearless, expressing herself with no concerns about following the rules. After the Go-Go’s retired from touring last year, the 59-year-old pop/punk icon wasted no time in forming a new project, the indie-psych
As the glam-rock diva who crowd-surfed to AWOLNATION’s “Sail,” Season 5 rebel Kat Robichaud made history as one of the most electric and fearless Voice contestants of all time. Featuring a rotating cast of musicians, magicians, drag queens, aerialists, and burlesque dancers, and aptly described by The
Monday just may have been THE craziest night in The Voice history, as the show crammed 20 performances — and eight eliminations, based on real-time East Coast voting results — into its lightning-speed first live episode of Season 11. Yes, today’s election will be a real nail-biter, of course, but last
Well, my fellow American citizens, we all know that we have a very contentious, very controversial voting situation on our hands this historical week.
It is probably the ultimate goal of all aspiring musicians who try out for televised talent competitions that they will one day become so successful, their reality TV stints will be mere footnotes on their multi-page résumés. Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are great examples of this
The top 20 contestants for The Voice Season 11 have been revealed (check out their cast photos and Reality Rocks’ full ranking here), and before they head into next Monday’s lightning-round Live Playoffs, it’s time to get to know these singers a little better. What are their top five go-to karaoke songs
The Voice Season 11’s top 20 semifinalists were revealed on Halloween night – quite fittingly, because the cast is SCARY-good this time around! But Monday’s bloodbath of a Knockout Rounds horror show featuring some Halloween-worthy shockers, too – like the eliminations of early frontrunners Maye Thomas
Montreal’s Arcade Fire have been spending a lot of time in New Orleans, the second home to the group’s core couple, Win Butler and Régine Chassagne; earlier this year, they famously led a second-line tribute to their late collaborator David Bowie through the French Quarter, and this past Saturday, they
Day one at New Orleans’s Voodoo Music + Arts Experience may have been dominated by hip-pop acts like the Weeknd, G-Eazy, and Rae Sremmurd, but day two, Saturday, was all about the rock — featuring alt-prog legends Tool, Taylor Momsen-fronted rockers the Pretty Reckless, prosthetic-headed Swedish metalheads
Sharon Needles is the great Gothic scream queen of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the supernaturally cool Season 4 winner who during her victory speech uttered one of the show’s most genius lines: “If anyone boos you offstage, that is simply applause from ghosts.”
Day one of the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans featured many highlights, including an onstage marriage proposal, a mock guitar solo by an adorable 5-year-old girl, a cover of the Family Ties theme, and a controversial chant of “Free Kevin Gates!” during hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd’s mobbed
A couple years ago, one-man powerpop band Self released the cat-tastic “Runaway” music video, which had us posing the question, “Is this the best cat music video ever?“ At first, the obvious answer seemed to be: “Well, duh. Please note, we didn’t include viral videos (sorry, Keyboard Cat, Nora the Piano
G-Eazy brought both the love and the hate to New Orleans’s Voodoo festival this Friday, with a wild, wide-ranging set that included a sweet onstage marriage proposal and a scathing, expletive-addled song about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
When brainy glitch-pop band Mutemath played the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience this Friday, frontman Paul Meany kept it in the family — just as he did when the group first performed at the New Orleans festival in 2006. Back then, it was Meany’s grandfather, affectionately known as “Papa G,” who joined
When Detroit’s nerdy neo-soulman Mayer Hawthorne announced Friday at New Orleans’s Voodoo festival that he and his band were about to play “the greatest song of all time,” one might have expected something by, say, Marvin Gaye or Smokey Robinson. But instead, Hawthorne and company graced the Pepsi Stage
The Knockout Rounds of The Voice Season 11 commenced this Monday and Tuesday, so it’s time for me and my “The Day After” co-host, Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin, to discuss what happened this week.
Pop-punk superstars Good Charlotte are the latest act to sign up to do an Audience Network concert special. The program airs this Friday, but you can watch the Madden brothers in action right now, as Yahoo Music premieres this exclusive preview from the special, of Joel and Benji performing their latest
Thirty years ago, MTV actually played music videos. And the network played a lot of Madonna videos. So many, in fact, that it devoted an entire day — Oct. 30, 1986, also known as “Blue Thursday” — to Madge’s “Make My Video” contest, running a marathon of fan-made “True Blue” music videos that ranged
The Voice Knockouts continued apace this Tuesday, and finally, my girl Belle Jewel, the belle of the Season 11 ball, got the screentime she has so long been denied. Belle and her baby bangs and her probably-not-on-her-birth-certificate stage name have intrigued me ever since she auditioned with a Postmodern
The Voice Season 11 Knockout Rounds kicked off Monday, featuring key advisors Tim McGraw and Faith Hill — the first time two celebrities have been brought in to jointly mentor at this stage of the competition. And thus, television history was made! And I am sure country’s cutest couple signed on because
