Nine years after her 'American Idol' run, former teen singer Allison Iraheta's trademark rasp remains — but much else has changed.
“The storyline has changed where people tell me, ‘Hey man, I'm a huge fan of "The Walking Dead." I didn't even know about "American Idol!"’ It's really turned that way,” says "Idol" alumni Lee DeWyze.
The new 'Block' buttons, which can be used only once during 'Voice' auditions, allow each coach to block another coach from getting an artist.
"I thought, ‘What am I doing? I can't do this anymore. I need to take this seriously. I need to just stop thinking that I can handle it and I need to do the work to get better.’"
And so — final Four moving on to next week's finale are Zhavia, Candice Boyd, Evvie McKinney, and Vincint Cannady. (Not moving onto next week's finale? Charlie Walk!)
With the singing-show market saturated by 'The Voice' and 'The Four,' can 'Idol' to recapture its glory? Executive producer Trish Kinane and Megan Michaels Wolflick say yes.
When 20-year-old Kendyle Paige came to "The Four" and claimed she was better than golden-girl Zhavia, the result was a battle of epic TV proportions.
When Jefferson Clay implied that Jason Warrior wasn’t a “true artist,” things got awkward, fast. Show host Fergie even looked like she was about to break it up at one point.
Team Gwen’s singer-songwriter, poet, and former dog hotel worker Taylor John Williams was a top five fan favorite on The Voice Season 7, thanks to his buzzy covers of Lorde’s “Royals,” the Once theme “Falling Slowly,” Kanye West’s “Heartless,” and Tears for Fears’ “Mad World.” Since leaving the show, the 26-year-old Portland troubadour has kept busy, releasing the independent EPs Song of a Dead Man and Hiraeth in 2016 and the full-length El Dorado last year. “I felt that ‘Like the Movies’ was most deserving of a no-frills, live performance video,” Williams tells Yahoo. “I wanted to get a few of my favorite vocalist in Los Angeles — Beck Pete, Ricky Manning, and Madison Malone — along with the wonderfully talented Emily Elkin on cello, together in a room to capture the song in a pared-down, vulnerable state.
Not even an appearance by a member of real R&B royalty -- the granddaughter of Dionne Warwick and cousin of Whitney Houston -- could save this episode.
The R&B slow jams that ended up soundtracking “The Room”’s four cringeworthy, gratuitous sex scenes, much to gospel singer Kitra Williams’s embarrassment.
Fox is back in the singing-show game with "The Four: Battle for Stardom," featuring Diddy (or “Love,” or whatever) himself.
Today, my co-host Jeffery Austin and I are here to review the top four performances and review our highlights (and lowlights... but mostly highlights) of the Season 13 finale. Let's recap -- and see you again in Season 14!
“I used to talk kind of higher, and softer, and I felt like I wasn’t being heard. So I changed my voice and I lowered my presence so I would be listened to."
Before, it seemed like this was either Chloe Kohanski or Addison Agen’s finale to lose. But now, I feel like any of the top four could take home that fist-shaped trophy.
None of the current finalists on “The Voice” Season 13 -- one of the best seasons in the series’ history -- deserve to go home this soon. On Monday, many delivered stellar performances that in weaker seasons would've ensured them spots in the finale.
The songs “Water Guns” and “Papi” from Hall’s 2016 visual album, “Straight Outta Oz,” anticipated issues dominating the news today. His next album is slated for March 2018.
It was a dramatic double-elimination night on The Voice this week, while onetime frontrunner Davon Fleming having to sing for the Instant Save and underdog Adam Cunningham surprisingly avoiding the bottom three altogether. Instead, it was Team Miley’s Ashland Craft and Team J.Hud’s Shi’Ann Jones who went home. Next week, it’ll be even tougher, as four contestants go home at once on Season 13’s pre-finale bloodbath night.
This was a classic Davon performance: a gender-flipped song choice, a perfectly paced vocal that built masterfully in intensity, a palpable emotional connection … and an awesome pair of floral pants.
Though Chloe Kohanski and Addison Agen have emerged as frontrunners, Addison gave her finest performance of the season, while Chloe lost some of her magic with a cheesy tribute act.
"It didn't feel like a setback, but it felt like, ‘Oh, this is getting tougher. … I'm going to have to go through this.’ But, yeah, I do feel like I have a different lease on life.”
