The Voice 2 – Finale Results – Live Blog – May 8, 2012

Tonight is The Voice Season 2 Finale results show on May 8, 2012! After weeks of blind auditions, battle rounds, and live shows, we are now down to the season finale. Chris Mann, Juliet SimmsJermaine Paul, and Tony Lucca took to the stage last night for your votes. As far as musical guests go, we have Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, Hall & Oates, and Flo Rida. But, more importantly, who will win?!

Rickey.org readers have predicted that Juliet Simms will win the whole competition. Let’s hope you guys are right!

As of 7 P.M., Lucca‘s “99 Problems” was #3 on iTunes — while his duet (“Yesterday”) with Adam Levine was at #5. Also, Mann and Christina Aguilera‘s duet of “The Prayer” was at #10. If this is any indication, looks like a guy just might nab the crown.

Note: If the live blog isn’t updating with new information, please delete cookies for the Rickey.org domain in your browser.

Anyways, I will be live blogging the results right here for your viewing pleasure. So, come back soon and often for updates. Btw, the finale results show starts at 9 PM EST and lasts for 2-jam-packed-hours!

Carson Daly introduces the the four most talented vocalists in America!

 

Recap of last night. The judges dish about the remaining contestants and how they’ve inspired them. Cee Lo Green is wearing a red shirt with all the names of his team members. How cute.

Carson announces that past contestants from this season will be returning!!!

 

Musical Performance – Jermaine Paul w/ Pip, James Massone, and Jamar Rogers – “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5

Oh, these guys are back! They’re all decked out in gold suits! Cheese factor is on high tonight. A pretty solid performance. Jermaine worked out some of those runs.

Behind-the-scenes video: We get a glimpse at all the goofiness that ensues on set. Blake totally checked out Cee Lo. LOL. “It doesn’t hurt to be beautiful,” Cee Lo says. Apparently, Xtina and Blake have gone fishing. “I’m not going fishing with you anymore,” she says. Haha.

 

Musical Performance – Juliet Simms with Flo Rida – “Whistle” and “Wild One”

Odd pairing. Juliet doesn’t sound too bad on hip hop/pop. She could totally put out a pop record, if done right.

Musical Performance – Chris Mann with Lindsay Pavao and Katrina Parker – “Bittersweet Symphony”

Love this song! Perfect for them! Chris doesn’t sound so bad, but the girls totally rock this. I miss Katrina and Lindsay!

Bromance Video: Adam and Blake have something very special between them. Aww. “I do think he’s a good looking man,” Blake says of Adam. They like to dance together. FYI, Blake now has a crush on Carson.

Musical Performance – Hall & Oates w/ Jermaine, Tony and Chris – “Rich Girl”

I didn’t realize Hall and Oates were still a thing. I listened to them growing up, sure, but this is not exciting material for a finale. I want some Katy Perry. Please and thank you. The guys simply provide some nice background vocals. Good stuff.

Coach Video: We get to see more peeks at the four judges behind-the-scenes. There is so much chemistry. They all make fun of each other.

 

Musical Performance – Kim Yarbrough, Naia Kete, Sarah Hill and Cheesa – “Superstition”

Girl Power!!! Cheesa is back!!! I hate this song with a passion, but these girls work this out.

Parks and Recreation Parody Video: Amy Poehler parodies the show. Her boss decides to get one of those swivel chairs. Cee Lo makes an appearance! Hilarious!

Musical Performance – Juliet Simms w/ Erin Willett, Raelynn and Jamar Rogers – “With a Little Help from My Friends” by Joe Cocker

Jamar is just a lovable guy, huh? Lots of screen time for him tonight! Love this song! Oh damn, Erin is great on this. Raelynn, God love her, but she’s not so good tonight. Go Jamar! Sing it, dude! And Juliet totally should have sung this last night.

Purrfect the Cat Video: Purrfect is the breakout star of the show! Purrfect recently scored an endorsement deal with Purina and reinveted the Meow Mix jingle with Cee Lo. Check it out HERE.

Musical Performance – Lady Antebellum – “Wanted You More”

Awesome! Love this song. Lady A are such a class act. So glad they were booked for this. This track is from their Own the Night album.

Musical Performance – Tony Lucca with Jordis Unga – “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac

YES! JORIDS IS BACK! Singing one of my favorite songs in history, she sounds pretty fantastic on this. Plus, she looks gorgeous. How did this girl NOT make the finale?! I still won’t get over that.

Check out their full performance HERE.

Coach Cat Parody: Oy. They are auditioning cats. LOLz. “Dig down deep and find your inner freak.”

Contestants on the Red Carpet: We get to see them living the life on the red carpet! And they attended a party! KIA motors gave them each a car!!!! That’s a prize in itself! Juliet doesn’t have a car so she needed one :)

 

World Premiere Performance – Justin Bieber – “Boyfriend”

This song. I can’t. It is catchy, though. Six backup dancers faun all over him and he works out some dance moves. Gold sneaks!!!

I wanna see Xtina give him the biatch face again…

Check out his full performance HERE.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the official music video:

 

RESULTS

Juliet Simms, Tony Lucca, Chris Mann and Jermaine Paul stand center stage!

 

The artist in 4th place is……CHRIS MANN!!! (Oh wow, he had his best night last night. Hmm)

 

The artist in 3rd place is……TONY LUCCA!!! (Holy. Crap.)

 

The artist in 2nd place is……JULIET SIMMS (Damn.)

 

The winner of season two is……JERMAINE PAUL!!!

Watch the results HERE.

 

He sings “I Believe I Can Fly” as his swan song. Lots of hugs and kisses and tears. We’re out.

 

Wow. I did not expect that results at all. I’m most shocked that neither Tony or Chris took the crown. I’m happy Juliet at least finished in second place. Much deserved in that regard. But…Jermaine?!?!?! Oy.

 

What do you guys think? Did Jermaine deserve to win? Sound off in the comments!

Well this show supposed to be a good alternative to AI.  Ha!  It ended with a thud.

 

I guess it turned out to be a black vs. white vote.  The black contestant came out on top when the 3 white contestants split the votes?  The show tried really hard to get a girl win by having only one girl in the finale.  Time to rethink the finale formula if they want a girl to win  next year.

In hindsight, I remember Jermaine got so many votes compared to Erin last week that he didnt need much of Blake's points... Maye THAT was our sign of things to come:-) wow so The Voice, in stark contrast to AI, is not about white guys with guitars! lol!

WTF WTF WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Now that is what you call a shocker!!!!!! I guess people were voting for Team Blake since he lost to Adam last season or Jermaine's tears? lols  Anyway it doesn't matter since we will forget about them by the end of the week.

I'm seriously having some intense Season 1 flashback. I so wanted Dia to win and she ended up in second place and now this. I wanted Juliet to win and she ended up second to another Javier Colon who will never sell anything.

I voted for Jermaine and Juliet...just wondering to everyone on here not happy with the results -- did you vote?

In my opinion, I think the Adam/Xtina feud had something to do with this. Maybe TPTB placed their contestants in the bottom to teach them a lesson? IDK I really think there's some conspiracy here. Jermaine?? Seriously???

and now im switching to Idol... I am not watching The Voice (season 2 LOL)

Great; so now we've got clear precedents here: WGWG for AI and BBG (Bald Black Guy) for The Voice!

I think there was an error and Carson read the rankings backwards.....

Congrats on The Voice for getting another JAVIER COLON this season!

 

(another boring artist on the rise) LMFAO

 

BTW, Javier doesnt sell well in iTunes. LMFAO

On the bright side, if patterns are set on these shows, it makes we get another black female diva winner on x-Factor. I'm cool with that!

I am not really surprised as Chris Mann finishes at 4th. Only little can appreciate opera nowadays. But so much and so happy that TONY does not WIN!

WTF?!?! I'm flabbergasted right now. Jermaine? Seriously? He won the whole freaking thing due to one decent performance in the very last round? When all the momentum was behind Juliet and Tony! How is this possible? This is a joke because Jermaine is NOT going to sell. He'll bomb even worse than Javier Colon. Something's seriously wrong with the formula of this show and the voting system. His "I Believe I Can Fly" wasn't even that great - he was painfully screechy on the high notes as usual. Well it really doesn't matter who wins because the top 4 will most likely ALL release albums, like the top 4 from last season did.

 @IdleTime You are an idiot. "Black vs. white" vote? That's how you think?

 @iamyamyam Duets starts in two weeks! But just in case, see you back in the fall!

 @crackinthewall Getting eliminated early has not hurt the marketability of those participants with true commercial potential. There's a reason Dia and Pia's (AI10) products are gathering dust in their virtual record bins.

Have you ever thought that everyone just might not think as you do.

Maybe, some of us think that Jermaine really can sing and it's not about R&B or Rock. 

I enjoy Jermaine singing the country song of Blake's.  Yes, some of us really like Juliet

and a few others, but obviously a lot of black folks, white folks and probably others voted

for Jermaine. We did so because we think he had the best vocals on final night.

Oh, and by the way, enough of of thought that way and I do believe that's the reason Jermaine

WON! ..... just saying.

 @iamyamyam Joshua might win there. That'll be another result to be angry about.

 @Klope62 You keep forgetting that these are TV shows. Drama is the winner.

 @iamyamyam I never expected Tony to win especially since Katrina had the popular vote last week. It was Adam that gave Tony the edge to make it to the finale.

....only in your world, all the momentum was behind Juliet and Tony. 

In my world the momentum was with the two winners, Jermaine and Juliet.

 @Rickey If Jessica Wins A.I (Or Hollie) You need to come up with an acronym for them too!!

 @Mikhail XO  LMAO!  I fell asleep earlier and missed the whole dang show.  Watching Rickey's clips now. BBG wins on the Voice then.  haha  Well hey there will be The Voice Season 3 soon so we can root for a girl to win then.

I think Joshua should win!

 @Rickey Sucky winners are not good drama, lol.

I love Juliet, but it was Cee-Lo votes that put Juliet over Jamar!  

However, I don't think Jamar or Jesse Campbell would have beat Jermaine.

I love them all, but Jermaine's voice is richer and stronger.

 @Lombe  @Rickey For Jessica, not yet. If she won, she would be the first Mexican American Idol. Hollie on the other hand would deserve her own acronym for her own lineage of AI winners.

@Mikhail XO @Rickey It's a Javier Colon sequel!

 @Klope62 Nonsense! American Idol has produced multiple sucky contestants and winners and the ratings are amazing! Why the memory loss Gabe?

Jermaine's skin is so smooth and dark.

He looks like sweet dark chocolate!
