The Voice Recap: Season 2 ‘Live Finale’ 5/8/12

The Voice Recap: Season 2 'Live Finale' 5/8/12

Last night The Voice treated us to the Final Live Performances of Season 2.  Tonight The Voice Season 2 champion will be crowned.  The stakes have never been higher, up for grabs is a recording contract with Universal Republic and $100,000 prize.

On last night’s show the four remaining contestants Tony Lucca, Jermaine Paul, Juliet Simms and Paul man took the stage to sing for our votes.  They perform one individual song, one thank you to their mentors and lastly they were joined by their mentors to perform a duet.  If you missed any of last night’s performances you can see them all here.

It is difficult to predict who will win, my favorite is Team Adam’s Tony Lucca.  On last night’s show he performed Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” and mentor Christina Aguilera was not pleased.  Christina commented, “the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory towards women, but all in all I thought it was fun.”

We conducted a poll today and a whopping 40% of our viewers believe Juliet Simms will be the winner tonight followed by Tony Lucca with 23% of the vote.  Have you voted yet?  If you haven’t there is still time, go HERE and let us know who you are rooting for.

On tonight’s show Justin Bieber will return to the show for a world premiere performance of his new single, “Boyfriend,” from his upcoming album, Believe.  Flo Rida, is set to perform a medley of his hit single, “Wild Ones.”  Daryl Hall and John Oates will perform their  “Rich Girl.”  Lastly, Lady Antebellum will perform “Wanted You More” from their latest hit album, Own the Night.

These singers sound beautiful together – especially Chris and Katrina – but Chris stands out!

No helpers this time and they obviously don’t need them – or want them…  Great – simply amazing by these pros.

Special Performance featuring Tony Lucca and Jordis Unga singing ‘Go Your Own Way’ by Fleetwood Mac

Nice duet – they are really good together.

Special Performance by Justin Bieber rapping ‘Boyfriend‘ – the worst performance of the night by far!  Really – it is bad!  Nothing else to say… he looks nice though – good hair – and the girls are screaming.

Now we are here… they are talking to Jermiane – we will learn who is going!  Jermaine says it would mean the world to him to win.  Chris says he grew.  Juliet gets a big audience rise – she says they practice hard!  This is her childhood dream.  Tony had proven he is not one dimensional – Tony is proud.

In 4th place is Chris -  he is gone and Team Christina loses.

In 3rd place Tony Lucca – he is gone.

And the winner is… Jermaine Paul!!

Well Juliet comes 2nd – not to shabby.

Final Standings:

Jermaine Paul – Team Blake – Wins!

Juliet Simms – Team Cee Lo – Second

Tony Lucca – Team Adam – Third

Chris Mann – Team Christina – Fourth

They announced that Juliet only had 4% less than Jermaine.  Anyway – seasons over – hoped you enjoyed it.  Goodbye and Good Night.
