The Voice: Who's Going to Win?

Have you been watching The Voice? This year is the first time I've watched, and I've really enjoyed it.


In case you haven't watched it, from left to right: Jermaine Paul (Blake Shelton's guy), Chris Mann (Christina Aquilera's guy), Juliet Simms (Cee Lo Green's gal), and Tony Lucca (Adam Levine's guy). These are the four finalists.

I've pretty much been pulling for Juliet Simms most of the season. Her voice, reminiscent of Janis Joplin, is different from most, and she has the looks to stand out. I think she'll win. But I've noticed lately that she really has to have the right song to stand out; when the song isn't right, she's pretty mediocre.

Of course, at this level, all four of the finalists are excellent. I found myself, though, really liking Tony Lucca. Why? Of course, I like his voice. But I also like his personality and his stage presence. I like Adam Levine. And maybe much of why I like Tony Lucca is because Christina is so rude to him and as far as I can tell, he doesn't deserve it. They were both Disney Mouseketeers together, along with Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake so they have history. Tonight, when Lucca had an opportunity to thank Levine for mentoring him through the process, he took the opportunity to thank all four coaches for what they've done for the contestants, and as the camera panned to the coaches, Christina appeared to be texting instead of listening. Did you catch that?

So I've voted for Tony tonight, but I think Juliet will win. We'll find out Tuesday night. How about you? Who do you think/hope will win?

Tony - and mostly because I want to slap Christina! He does have a great voice and it is obvious he has been doing this for a long time. Juliette has a cool voice but I agree with you in that if it isn't the right song, it doesn't work. I love the sound of Jermaine's voice. Once again, they had some great talent this season.

Juleits style is a mixed breed between joplin and benetar, which the music industry has been lacksing since the '80s....shes in the right place at the right time. Shes been my favorite since day one HOWEVER tony lucca has shown the most change and is one hell of a performer himself...hats off to both them....the the best one (but obviously itll be the most popular) win...

I'm glad it's these four as the finalists. They each sing a different style of music and are sure to have successful careers ahead of them. Christina? She IS rude! Florence

They are all very talented but I'm cheering for Jermaine.
An award for rudeness, arrogance, tastless sleezy clothing and the list goes on and on would definitely be won by Christina!!

I have the whole season DVR'ed but have not yet found the time to watch it! I will probably hear the winner before I ever see the whole season! LOL But I like to listen to it as I stitch because I don't really have to see what is going on to know if I like a singer or not! :) Can't wait to get caught up on it!

I am with you, Tony all the way. I like all of them and their voices. As several have said, if Juliet doesn't have the right song then she's so so.
