All four musician coaches – Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine – will team up to perform the Rolling Stones’ classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” on the final live performance episode of NBC’s “The Voice,” airing from 8 to 10 tonight. In addition, country star Brad Paisley joins R&B/pop sensations Pitbull and Ne-Yo as special guest performers on the hit vocal competition series tonight.
Be sure to follow my live blogs of the final two episodes of NBC’s hit reality TV show: from 8 to 10 p.m. Tuesday and from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday here at BAM’s Blog.
The four finalists are Dia Frampton from Team Blake, Javier Colon from Team Adam, Beverly McClellan from Team Christina and Vicci Martinez from Team Cee Lo, who will perform on Tuesday’s show with the winner announced on Wednesday night.
The three-time Grammy Award-winning Paisley will perform “Don’t Drink the Water” with Shelton. The duet is from Paisley’s recently-released album “This Is Country Music,” which includes the song featuring Shelton. Shelton, who lives in Tishomingo, is currently touring with Paisley on his “H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour.” The Ada native’s current single “Honey Bee,” which he debuted on “The Voice,” is holding on to the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart this week.
Pitbull and Ne-Yo also will take the stage to perform their global smash “Give Me Everything” from Pitbull’s new album “Planet Pit.”
On Wednesday’s live finale, the four finalists will get to perform superstar duets, too. Frampton will perform with Shelton’s bride, fellow Tishomingo country superstar Miranda Lambert. Tulsa native Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic will do a duet with Team Xtina finalist Beverly McClellan, Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac with Team Adam finalist Javier Colon and Pat Monahan of Train with Team Cee Lo finalist Vicci Martinez on the season finale, airing at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
“The Voice” is an innovative vocal competition series modeled after Holland’s top-rated vocal talent discovery show, “The Voice of Holland.” The series is hosted by Carson Daly and features the musician coaches working through the various phases of the competition with only the most talented vocalists. The show’s second season will air mid-season at 7 to 9 p.m. Mondays.
In addition, “The Voice” continues to push the boundaries between broadcast and online by bringing social media conversations to the on-air show. Bridging the gap between on-air and online is Social Media Correspondent Alison Haislip (“Attack of the Show!”), who makes regular appearances during the live broadcasts. Haislip engages fans and connects them to artists and coaches from “The Voice Social Media Room” via Facebook, Twitter, NBC.com and NBC Live. In the live shows, fans who use #TheVoice or tweet to the show, coaches or artists’ official handles may see their tweets appear in the lower third of the screen during cutaways during the live show.
For a period following each episode, eligible voters have four ways to vote for that night’s artists/contestants on “The Voice”: through toll-free phone calls, through online votes via NBC.com and the NBC Live online and iPad companion viewing app, and purchasing songs on iTunes.
