Sources are saying execs over at The Voice don't believe in Jermaine Paul because of the "similarities" he shares with last year's winner - Javier Colon.
Since Javi didn't experience wide-spread success like contestant Dia Frampton did, the execs were disappointed. And since the sources says the J & J "have a lot in common," execs fear another let down:
We've just learned that while Sprint will be returning as an official sponsor for The Voice during season two, the show has also landed the following new sponsors: Kia Motors AND Starbucks Coffee!!!!!!
Aside from giving the show lots of $$$, we're hearing that the contestants, mentors, and coaches will all be given mobile phones and tablets from Sprint! The company will also sponsor The Voice's presence on NBC.com, Facebook, and mobile platforms.
Such talented individuals! They should be very proud of even making it this far!
Last night, on The Voice, the final four contestants not only got to perform with their respective coaches, but they each performed an original song that we think really showed off all of their specific strengths to a T!
Check out Javier Colon's original, Stitch By Stitch; Afraid to Sleep by Vicci Martinez; Dia Frampton's performance of Inventing Shadows; and Beverly McClellan doing Love Sick (above)!
As sad as we were to see Frenchie go, we have to give credit where credit is due, and all of these contestants did an AMAZING job!
But who has what it takes to win?! We can't figure it out!
What do U think?? Who should be The Voice?
Check out the other final performances… after the jump.
Damn! They are seriously pulling out all the stops for this finale!
It has already been announced that Miranda Lambert will be performing with Dia Frampton, one of the finalists on The Voice, tomorrow during the finale, and now, we've learned that the others will be joined by none other than Stevie Nicks, Pat Monahan, and Ryan Tedder!
Finalist Javier Colon will perform with Nicks, while the Train frontman will perform with Vicci Martinez, and the OneRepublic singer/writer will join Beverly McClellan!
We can't wait to hear what they all have in store!
This is gonna be a close one!
What do U think?? Who are U most excited to see perform??
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
