Blake Shelton is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, but he seems to be mostly concerned about keeping up with the Joneses.
The country singer and Voice mentor appears with castmember Cecily Strong in promos for his forthcoming episode. In one of the clips, Shelton had plenty of choice words for Maroon 5 frontman and Voice rival Adam Levine.
The Voice is trying something new to ensure their next winner jumps from the finale to the charts.
On Monday night's episode, the last remaining competitors took the stage to debut original songs, penned with support from their coaches' creative teams. They also unveiled corresponding music videos for these immediately available singles — and though they all hail from different genres, some actually sound like viable, postshow hits. Maybe even career starters.
Thanks to Tuesday night's triple-elimination episode, it's now down to five singers and three coaches on The Voice.
After a few alumni performances — season-six finalist Christina Grimmie introduced her debut single "With Love," and season-two contestant RaeLynn sang "God Made Girls" — the bottom four (!!!) were revealed.
Monday's episode of The Voice kicked off with a top-8 performance of Sheppard's "Geronimo," and undivided by their team affiliations for the first time this season, the truth onstage stared viewers in the face: there's only one lady left in season seven: DaNica Shirey. That fact was even more stark when they took the stage with Nick Jonas for his latest single, "Jealous."
Despite this week's enriching guest mentorship from Clive Davis, Diana Ross, Colbie Caillat, Christina Aguilera and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, two more singers were sent home from The Voice on Tuesday night after failing to collect enough support from voting viewers. (At least they got to gather with their loved ones in Los Angeles for a Voice Thanksgiving feast?)
The Voice has had its first weekly double elimination, but, as Carson Daly announced at the beginning of the broadcast, all eliminated top-12 singers will get a chance to rejoin the competition as a fan-voted, fourth "wild card" finalist.
