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!
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.
'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.
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 did an amazing job. So today on The Day After, my co-host Jeffery Austin and I have donned our vintage Kelly T-shirts in her honor, as we talk about the Knockouts.
Editor Lyndsey Parker and Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin break down the second batch of Battles for 'The Voice' Season 13.
The Voice Season 13 Battle Rounds kicked off this week, and today on The Day After, my co-host, Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin, break down the first batch of Battles — the good, the bad, and the pitchy. (Spoiler: We also talk about RuPaul’s Drag Race, a lot. Maybe it’s time to start a Day After series for that show!)
The Voice Season 13 Blind Auditions wrapped up this Tuesday, with coach Miley Cyrus making herstory with the series’ first-ever all-girl team. Today on The Day After, my co-host, Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin, and I look at Miley’s 12 contestants, as well as the members on Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Jennifer Hudson’s teams, and we make our predictions for the season going forward.
The Voice Season 13 Blind Auditions continued apace this Monday and Tuesday, and today on The Day After, my co-host, Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin, and I have questions.
The Voice is back — and you know what that means! The Day After is back as well! Join me and Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin every Wednesday throughout Season 13, as we snark and share our opinions about the show. This week, we discuss the season’s first two nights of Blind Auditioners — which included a gay former pro football player, a Christian drag queen, an ex-Adam Lambert/Nicki Minaj backup singer-turned-country crooner, and a couple of YouTube sensations.
This Tuesday on The Voice Season 12, in perhaps the biggest finale shocker since Josh Kaufman won over Jake Worthington and Christina Grimmie six seasons ago, Team Alicia’s Chris Blue beat out Team Blake’s presumed frontrunner, iTunes queen Lauren Duski. Lauren had dominated iTunes all season (even this week, she held the chart’s top two spots, with her original co-write hitting No. 1), but Chris — the last contestant picked during this season’s Blind Auditions process, and a rare finalist that actually tried out for the show via an open call — still prevailed. Chris earned his victory, especially with his phenomenal “Diamonds and Pearls” and “Rhythm Nation” performances this week, and as the most current and pop-leaning Voice winner yet, he could have a real future in the real world.
This crazy top eight week on The Voice semifinals, also known as the “Red Chair Wedding,” four contestants went home, all at once, including both of Gwen Stefani’s presumed frontrunners, Hunter Plake and Brennley Brown, aka “Hennley.” (Two other worthy contenders, Team Alicia’s Vanessa Ferguson and Team Blake’s TSoul, also didn’t survive this bloodbath.) And today, my “The Day After” co-host, Season 9 Team Gwen finalist Jeffery Austin, and I are still in shock/mourning. Along with last night’s quadruple-elimination shocker and Monday’s mostly excellent performances, there’s an entire Twitterverse of conspiracy theories, plus our predictions for which of the remaining top four — Team Blake’s Lauren Duski and Aliyah Moulden, Team Adam’s Jesse Larson, and Team Alicia’s Chris Blue — will win next week.
This week on The Voice Season 12, two contestants went home, and they both happened to be Team Adam contestants. Unless Jesse Larson can survive next week’s quadruple-elimination bloodbath, it looks like this might be the first time since Season 4 that the hyper-competitive Adam Levine will out a finale.
This week on The Voice Season 12, Team Alicia’s Stephanie Rice shockingly went home in 11th place, triggering waves of outrage across the Interweb — or at least the 41 percent of the East Coast-based Interweb that uses Twitter and watches The Voice in real time.
This week on The Voice Season 12, Shania Twain was a special-guest fifth coach — and while she contributed little actual constructive criticism to the show, today my co-host Jeffery Austin have plenty of our own opinionated commentary about Monday’s performances and Tuesday’s semi-surprising elimination on our own show, “The Day After.”
Today, my “The Day After” co-host, Season 9’s Jeffery Austin, and I dish about all of the above, discussing this week’s top 24 semifinal performances (the good, the band, and the Boston), ranking the remaining top 12 (spoiler alert, our shared No. 1 is the phenomenal Hunter Plake), and looking ahead to next week’s competition.
The Voice Season 12’s Knockout Rounds wrapped this week, and now we know our top 20. Of course, it’s really going to be a top 24 this season, we have since learned — thanks to the return of the gimmick twist known as the controversial “Coach Comeback.”
The Voice Season 12’s Knockout Rounds kicked off this week, and while there were several stellar performances (notably from Hunter Plake, TSoul, and Brennley Brown), several stellar contestants went home way too early — especially the two rocker Johnnys, Hayes and Gates. And then, due to some bizarre Steal decisions, a couple questionable contestants survived, despite not being quite ready for the Live Playoffs.
The Voice Season 12’s Battle Rounds wrapped up this week, and while there were several standout performances, the real drama took place not onstage but in the rehearsal room — thanks to the awesome mentoring of guest advisor Celine Dion and the not-so-awesome personality clash between former Team Adam frontrunner Kawan Debose and another guest advisor, John Legend.
The Voice Season 12’s Battle Rounds kicked off this week, and one of the standout Battles was between Chris Blue and RJ Collins — a stupendous performance that got Gwen Stefani so riled up, her boyfriend Blake Shelton actually seemed a little jealous. Let the Battles — and the discussion — begin.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, aka “Shefani,” reunited on The Voice Season 12 premiere this week, and you know what that means… it’s time for a reunion between myself and Season 9 Team Gwen finalist and “The Day After” co-host, Jeffery Austin.
This was an eventful week on The Voice, with the crowning of Sundance Head (the first American Idol alumnus to win The Voice); some stern words for Universal Records from Sundance’s coach, Blake Shelton; a bizarre (and one-sided) Twitter feud between estranged Team Adam members Billy Gilman and Nolan Neal; and a literally fiery finale performance by KISS. And today, here to talk all about it on this season’s final installment of “The Day After,” is Season 9’s Jeffery Austin, almost exactly a year from the day he appeared on his own season finale.
