‘The Voice’ Top 5 Results: Team Blake Goes Down Singing
Team Blake's Cole Vosbury goes home in fourth place
Looks like Blake Shelton's winning streak is finally over. For the first time in "Voice" history, he has no chance of triumphing on the show. After leading Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, and Danielle Bradbery to victory over the past three "Voice" seasons, Blake is officially out of the running, having lost his one remaining team member, Cole Vosbury, on Tuesday's semifinals results episode.
Meanwhile, Blake's archrival, Adam Levine, has a great chance of scoring his first "Voice" victory since Team Adam's Javier Colon took the title way back in Season 1. While Adam did suffer his first loss of the entire season (incredibly) this Tuesday, when James Wolpert was sent home in fifth place, his contestants Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin did make it through, and either has a very good shot of coming out on top. And Christina Aguilera, who's never won "The Voice," finally may taste sweet victory if her last girl standing, teen prodigy Jacquie Lee, prevails.
Sigh. Poor Cole. He was my favorite all season long (I was a card-carrying member of the Cole Patrol), and he seemed like a fan favorite, too. Maybe if he'd saved one of his standout performances from earlier in the season — "To Be With You," "Rich Girl," "Let Her Go" — for this week, he might've made the iTunes top 10 and scored that all-important "iTunes Bonus." But this week, Garth Brooks's "Shameless" just wasn't the kind of song that inspired fans to log on the way they did for Will's "Carry On," Jacquie's "Angel," or especially Tessanne's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," all of which made the top 10.
