For a show that's branded itself as the anti-American Idol, The Voice sure felt like American Idol last night, with eight finalists singing solo for votes.
There was even a girl from American Idol closing out the night!
Eight of the 16 finalists performed Tuesday, with the rest on tap next week. While the show has lost considerable steam since its premiere, due largely to its complicated format, these performances were strong.
Let's break them down!
Raquel Castro performed Ke$ha "Blow," a song notable mostly for its beat and its video, as Ke$ha cannot actually sing, channeling mentor Christina.
Mama Aguilera, along with the rest of the panel, loved it. America should do, especially coming from the youngest and smallest Voice cast member.
