  1. The Voice (Season 13)

    Tonight, the battle to win The Voice begins! Before they take the stage, they’ll be trained some of the biggest names in music. Blake recruited multi-platinum selling, award winning country music superstars Rascal Flatts. Helping team Jennifer, one of the founding members of Destiny’s Child, four time Grammy award winner, Kelly Rowland. Adam brought in lead vocalist of DNCE and former member of the Jonas Brothers, multi-platinum selling singer and actor, Joe Jonas. And Miley looked no further than her father, multi-platinum selling recording artist and actor, Billy Ray Cyrus. With coaching like this the artist’s will be unstoppable. Our coach’s decisions will be impossible and their steals more crucial. It all starts right now! Let’s check in with Jennifer and her advisor, Kelly Rowland. Let’s meet Jennifer’s first pairing, Lucas Holliday vs Meagan McNeal. Jennifer paired these two because they are both unique artist’s with an R&B feel. Jennifer has picked Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative because it’s funky, edgy, and it will help them shine that much more. Kelly can’t believe these two were one-chair turned. Kelly gives Meagan some staging tips. As the battle approaches, Lucas and Meagan get one more rehearsal with the band. Jennifer tells Lucas not to worry about what Meagan is doing and vice versa. She thinks they need to both pull it back and focus on their own parts and Kelly tells them not to climax in the middle of the song, but to take them home at the end. It’s the night of their performance and both artists are ready to take the stage. Lucas is not ready to go back to the store in Lansing and be a cashier for the rest of his life. Meagan wants to show her son no matter what obstacles or what you’ve been through, you can rise up and tackle what’s in front of you. Miley says Meagan owned it and her range was so amazing. That was a crowd pleaser. Miley says she saw the body rolls from Lucas and she knew he was an entertainer. She says getting to watch them perform was such a gift. Adam says what in the hell was that? He says 13 seasons deep and something like this happens and it’s what makes you realize why people love the show. Adam apologizes to Meagan because he didn’t know how awesome she was and Lucas, he’s a fan. Congrats to both of them. Blake says his sister used to play that song so loud in her room and that was as good as it could be. Jennifer says she is so proud of both of them. The way they came in and commanded the room and they got down. Jennifer says what she appreciates most if they were both true to who they are and that’s what makes it so difficult to make this decision. Carson says tough one coach. Jennifer says they are both so amazing. Carson says JHud who is the winner of this battle? Jennifer says the winner of this battle is…Lucas. This season Miley brought in her dad, country music icon Billy Ray Cyrus. Let’s meet Miley’s first battle pairing, Moriah Formica vs Shilo Gold. Miley chose American Woman by The Guess Who because she thinks it made sense for her all-female team and celebrating strong female characters. Miley wants to see if Shilo can handle pushing on a song like this. Billy says this could be the new female Brooks and Dunn. At their final rehearsal, Miley and Billy Ray give a few last minute tips with stage and staying confident. Billy Ray says this sounds to him like a battle where no one is going home. Moriah and Shilo are already on stage and ready to perform. Adam says Ladies! Adam says the fact Moriah isn’t on his team is dumb. He says she is unbelievable cool and different. Adam says Shilo did a great job, but he’d have to go with Moriah. Blake says great performance and they both brought elements that he appreciated. Blake says Moriah is a born rock star and Shilo is a born entertainer. Jennifer thinks Shilo did an amazing job owning it and making it her own, that was awesome. Jennifer says Moriah is like a 40-year old soul and she’d have to go with Moriah as well. Miley says Shilo has grown the most and she’s strengthened up her voice so much. Miley says she’s nervous to be around Moriah because she’s such a rock goddess. Carson says tough decision Miley, who is the winner of this battle. Miley says the winner of the battle is…Moriah. Let’s check in with Blake and his advisors, country music superstars with over 23 million albums sold, Rascal Flatts. Let’s meet Blake’s first battle pairing, Keisha Renee vs Noah Mac. Blake put them together because he really thinks they are the most powerful singers on his team. He gave them I’m So Lonesome I Could Try, the Elvis version because it’s country, it’s rock and they can make the song their own. Blake tells Rascal Flatts she wants to explore further into country music and Rascal Flatts would love to see it happen and they’d like to do a duet with her. Rascal Flatts tells Noah he’s an old soul and a different tone like Jerry Lee Lewis or Michael Buble. At their final rehearsal, Keisha and Noah impress Rascal Flatts. They say Keisha is one of the best singers they’ve heard in a long time, but Noah is really special and when he starts singing you forget he’s only 17-years old. They say it’s going to be a tough decision for Blake. Blake says Noah has shown the most improvement so far, but this is going to be a really tough decision. Blake says the person who delivers this song with a message and feeling will win the battle. Keisha and Noah take the stage. Jennifer says Noah’s voice is like an old soul and it’s very rare you can be that young and sing like that. Jennifer says Keisha’s voice is so flawlessly beautiful. She thinks they both come with something extremely special and she couldn’t pick between the two. Miley says Keisha came out with style and grace and she didn’t know Noah had all the low notes that were so solid. Miley thinks Keisha could win the show so that’s who she would pick. Adam says Keisha was bringing him to church but Noah was bringing him to a diner. Adam says there’s something about what they do that’s special and he couldn’t choose. He says it’s not like one was better than the other, it’s like comparing apples and oranges. Blake says it’s always easier when there’s a battle round where one brings it and the other sucks, but these two gave it everything they had. He says artistically they are so different. He says there’s so much honesty that comes with Noah’s voice and Keisha can fly with her voice. Carson says Blake who is the winner of this battle. Blake says this sucks so bad for him. Blake says he just has to do it…the winner of this battle is Keisha. Carson reminds the coaches Noah is available to steal. He thanks Blake and he goes to give Blake a hug. Jennifer seems hesitant. Noah goes and gives Adam a hug and starts to walk off, but Jennifer hits her button and Noah is stunned. He gives Jennifer a hug. Carson says Noah doesn’t realize he was one step away. Jennifer says she noticed the care and compassion he had for the music and here at JHud productions, they appreciate that. Jennifer says she thinks Noah has a great pop star quality and he’s special. Jennifer’s next pairing is Chris Weaver vs Kathrina Feigh. Jennifer says these two are her powerhouses and she wants to see who will deliver the most memorable and powerful performance. Jennifer gave them Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Jennifer says it exudes passion, power, everything they represent. Jennifer says if they don’t piece it together right, then they are going to crash and burn. At the final rehearsal, Kelly tells them too much is too much and they have to give the audience something and build to the climax. Jennifer says they are both so good, she doesn’t know who she’s going to pick. Chris and Kathrina are on stage and we are ready to let the battle begin. Miley says they have the biggest band behind them and it was almost acapella. Miley thinks Kathrina did an amazing job and Chris has a crazy voice and they set the standard of the battles. Adam says to go up against Chris is terrifying and Kathrina was right there with him and she didn’t let him overpower her. Adam says Chris is a force of nature that cannot be stopped. Blake says they are both incredible singers and they had control over the song. Blake says Kathrina had the song by the throat and Chris had the song by the throat and he was slapping it at the same time. Jennifer says it’s tough. Jennifer says Kathrina held her own and her voice is huge and she sold the moment. Jennifer says what they call Chris voice is a freight train and it is tough to battle against that and she’s proud of them both. Carson says Jennifer, who is the winner of this battle. Jennifer thinks everyone did what they were supposed to do. The winner of this battle is…Chris. Kathrina is available to steal and she feels like she already won. Blake hits his button and we have a steal! Blake says here at B Shelton productions they try not to let great talent get away from them. Let’s see Team Miley’s next pairing, Brooke Simpson vs Sophia Bollman. Miley paired them together because they are two of her biggest voices. Miley gave them You’re a Big Girl Now by Bob Dylan. Miley says this is going to be a little out of the box and it shows her where they can go creatively. Billy tells them to make it their own. Billy doesn’t envy Miley at all to make a decision between these two and he knows it’s going to be tough on Miley. Both artists, Brooke and Sophia are ready to take the stage and Miley gives some last minute advice to show what they can bring to Knock-outs. Adam says Sophia looks like a mini-Shakira but she did an incredible job. Adam says Brooke has all the power Sophia has but the next level of refinement. Adam says he’d go with Brooke, but Sophia is not to be trifled with. Jennifer says she didn’t even realize Sophia had a big presence and voice. Jennifer wishes Miley good luck. Blake says Brooke held the bar up there in the blind auditions and she held true to what they expected and Sophia stepped up to that level. Blake says he’d probably give it to Brooke too, if he had to. Miley says they made a Bob Dylan their song. Miley says Sophia has been so amazing and Brooke is such a superstar and she is so proud of both of them. When she pushed her red button at the blinds, she made a commitment to them and she’s there for them whenever they need her. Carson says time to make a decision, who is the winner of this battle. Miley says the winner of this battle is Brooke. Now we’ll meet Adam’s advisor, Joe Jonas. The first pairing for Team Adam is Adam Pearce vs Whitney Fenimore. Adam says they are his rock and rollers. Adam gave them Stop Dragging My Heart Around by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, one of the classic rock and roll duets made for artists like them. Joe thinks they are still finding their own version of the song and once they find their own lane, they’ll be great. Joe says he can’t pick a favorite between the two and they complement each other very well. At the final rehearsal, Joe advises Adam and Whitney to tell the story. Joe says Adam and Whitney floored him, they could tour the world right now and he’d go see the concert live any time. Adam says that was so good. Adam says Whitney has some edginess going on and Adam is a total stand-out and amazing. Adam says Whitney is a little superstar. He thought Adam was a front runner, but now the playing field is extremely equal. Adam and Whitney are on stage and are ready to perform. Blake says Adam has such a classic rock sounding voice and he’s not sure what direction Whitney is going musically, but that’s a good path. Blake would go with Whitney, but they both did great. Jennifer says Adam’s vocal presence couldn’t be missed and Whitney’s presence on stage is great, but she’d go with Adam. Miley says she doesn’t know what to say. She loves seeing Adam playing the guitar and she liked his hair flip and Whitney was stronger than she was in the blinds and she showed growth. Whitney thinks Adam would be fun to watch in the lives. Adam says he’s proud of them. He says this is tough because he might have leaned towards Adam in the beginning, but Whitney has really surprised him. Unfortunately, he’s fallen in love with both of them and he thinks they are 100% equal. Carson says Adam, who is the winner of this battle. Adam says the winner of this battle is…Adam. Whitney is available to steal. Whitney thanks Adam so much and Adam was amazing. Blake and Miley hit their buttons and we have a double steal. Miley says she turned for her before in the blinds and now it’s two for two and she thinks Adams should stay together and the Whitney and Miley can become something special. Blake says over here at BShel Productions he realizes that there is something truly special about her and they are Okies. Miley says she has Okie tattooed on her arm so she is Okie by association. Adam wants to help Whitney and he doesn’t think Miley has anything like Whitney and Blake is Blake and that’s cool too. Carson says Whitney, it’s up to you. Who’s your new coach. Whitney says Miley did turn for her and Blake is incredible, but she chooses…Miley. Tomorrow, the second night of battles brings heart-stopping performances that have the coach’s crushing. But when losing incredible talent becomes too painful, get ready for the most unexpected steal of the season.
  2. Survivor 35: Episode Recaps

    Previously on Survivor, at the Hero tribe Alan was aiming to take out a power couple. At the healer tribe, Joe and Cole went on the hunt for an idol. At the hustler tribe, Simone and Patrick were the clear targets. At tribal council, Patrick made a questionable remark, but in the end Simone was sent home. 16 are left, who will be voted out tonight? We’re at Day7 with the Hustlers and Ryan is wearing Simone’s clothes that she left behind. Patrick is also putting on a few items. Ryan and Patrick are talking about the girls and Ryan asks if he has a preference and Patrick says Ali to stay and Lauren is the next one to go. Ryan says Ali is the most relatable female on the tribe and she’s in the same age range. Ryan doesn’t think anyone has anything going on with Lauren. Ali and Lauren are talking while they are washing in the ocean and they are talking about trying to work together. Lauren tells us she feels like she’s on the outs because she’s having a hard time making sure she’s included. She’s a single-mom and everyone on her tribe is like high school buddies. Devon joins the girls and Lauren brings up Patrick’s comment from tribal council and she’s trying to place a target on his back. Ali says she doesn’t know what’s going on with Patrick because he just blurts out words, but if they get rid of him it weakens their tribe. Ali says Patrick doesn’t understand the social game is huge for Survivor, but right now she kind of needs him. At the Heroes beach, Chrissy and Ben are talking and they say everyone needs to work with them and they are in the prime position. Ben says they are driving the train, but moving forward they need to figure out the next target. Ben says Ashley is a hard worker and a lot of fun, so the better choices are JP and Alan. Alan and Ben were aligned from day one but he’s a hothead and a loose cannon and JP is walking around like he doesn’t know what’s going on, but he does fish. Alan is chopping coconuts but he’s had trouble with them. He tells us everyone can get them open but he’s been struggling with them. We see him chopping away trying to get a coconut open and he tells us this isn’t his element at all. He played in the NFL but cannot get a coconut open. He says it’s tough out here! Ashley says JP is becoming dreamier and dreamier as the days go on. Every time he comes out of the ocean with a different animal something goes on inside her. He’s becoming a provider and making himself useful and less and less like Alan as the days go by. Ashley says they can’t talk to each other though, because Alan went nuts on day two and called them some kind of power couple. So if Alan sees anything between her and JP he’ll go off again and she’s ready for him to go. Ashley is talking to Ben and she says JP has been fishing and Alan is getting coconuts and it’s like they are trying to make themselves valuable. Ashley says Alan makes his moves out loud and it doesn’t seem like a safe bet. Ben says neither is JP and he’s a puppy waiting to be led and Ashley says but he could be our puppy, we could train him. Ben says if anyone dangles a piece of meat in front of JP he could go the other way. Ben doesn’t fully trust Ashley at this point because she keeps pulling for JP to stay in the game and that makes him think maybe they are working together and a power couple on Survivor doesn’t work out good. At the Healers camp, Joe says everything is going great. They are the dominant tribe, everyone is on the same page about Mike being the first vote out because he has them believing Mike has an idol. He’s calm, cool, and collected right now, things couldn’t go better. The only thing is Cole knows he has the idol and he’s concerned about Cole’s relationship with Jessica. Jessica says the fishing experience is 100% bonding for her and Cole and they are really forming a connection. But in life outside of Survivor she moves like a slug when it comes to romance. She’s from a super religious background and she’s still a virgin. She says being a couple on Survivor is hard and dangerous. Cole asks if she’s enjoying herself and she says yeah, she’s having a blast. Cole guarantees Jessica that she’s safe. Jessica says she better be, he can’t get to the end without her and laughs. Cole tells Jessica that Joe has the hidden immunity idol. Cole is defining her as his dream girl and he wanted to share some information with her. Jessica says having that knowledge brings her so much happiness because secrets are powerful in the game. She’s elated. At the Hustlers tribe it’s morning and they are just milling about the camp. Patrick heads out into the forest and Ryan watches and he thinks Patrick is searching for the idol. He says it’s Survivor 101 not to search for idols in front of everyone. Patrick tells us he has idol fever and he’s not hiding that he’s looking for it and maybe that will come back and bite him. He works harder than the rest of his tribe members looking for an idol because that’s how he is in everyday life. Ali tries to explain to Patrick the social aspect and tells him people will wonder why he’s worried by looking for an idol. Patrick says Ali telling him to cool it is difficult because he just has to be him. Back at the Healers tribe, they are cooking and Mike is thanking them for cooking. Joe is saying the potatoes are raw and Desi says she’d eat it and he threw it off into the woods. Desi says that’s kind of off-putting. Roark says Joe is more than welcome to cook next time and he doesn’t know how people can eat raw food. Cole says Joe is rubbing people the wrong way and it bothers him that Joe has the idol and has all the power. Cole pitches to Jessica that if they should lose tonight maybe they should take Joe out. Cole says the idol is unpredictable especially in the wrong person’s hands. Cole tells Roark at camp about Joe having the idol and Jessica is upset. Cole pitches to split the votes if they lose and Roark is buying into the plan. Desi joins them and Cole makes his pitch to her and she notes that Joe complains a lot and Desi is ok with the plan. Jessica says she’s irritated that Cole ran off at the mouth and he lost a lot of power with her. The last thing they want is Joe to find out that they know because they could play the idol and then any of their heads could be on the chopping block. So maybe blind siding Joe is not the best strategy at this point. It’s time for the Immunity Challenge. Once again, immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge, you’re going to race through a series of obstacles. You’ll then use sandbags to knock blocks off a ledge. You must then stack those blocks one on top of the other. First two tribes to finish win immunity and are safe from the vote. In addition, we’re playing for reward. The first tribe to finish gets a crate of chickens (4 of them, 1 rooster and 3 hens). The second tribe to finish gets a basket of a dozen eggs courtesy of the first place chickens. Healers are sitting out Mike. Survivors are all off maneuvering through their obstacles. All tribes are very close at the first check point and they start to maneuver the second obstacle. Heroes are up and over quickly and Ben starts throwing. Roark is the last Healer over and Devon is the last Hustler over. Cole is throwing for the Healer’s and Patrick is throwing for the Hustlers. JP takes over for Ben. Joe switches in for the Healers and Patrick is not switching out. Healers are the first tribe to get all their blocks off and they start collecting blocks. Heroes get their last block off and start collecting. Hustlers still have one left. Patrick is still throwing and his tribe is asking to switch. Heroes and Healers are all stacking. Patrick finally connects with his last piece and the Hustlers are collecting their blocks. They are climbing on each other to reach the top of the block tower. Joe tells the Healers something is not right, they are missing a block. The block is still on the mat so they have to grab it. Heroes got it and get back to their mat and they win immunity and reward. Jessica back up for the Healers and Hustlers are struggling to get Ryan up to stack. Healers win immunity and reward and the Hustlers are going to tribal council again. Joe asks Patrick what the feeling is 8 days in and they are going back to tribal with only 5 people. Patrick says it’s depressing knowing they are going back. Lauren says but we’re going and we have to do it. Lauren says Patrick didn’t want to stop and it was like a one-man show. Lauren has played centerfield for 25 years and she thinks everyone is over Patrick and how he cost them today. Back at the Hustler’s camp Patrick apologizes for not throwing fast enough. Patrick tells us he should have let someone sub in for him and he knows Lauren isn’t happy with him. He doesn’t think she’ll be able to change much. He apologizes again to the tribe and they all say he tried his hardest. Lauren goes down to rinse off and Patrick asks the tribe and Devon says Lauren wants Patrick but everyone else is going to vote her out. Patrick tells us everyone has his back but he doesn’t want her going around worrying. He goes to talk to her and help her enjoy herself here. He approaches her while she’s washing up and he says he feels terrible for not knocking those blocks down. Lauren says she kept offering to switch it. Lauren says she’s bummed out about losing today and she’d rather lose as a team than one person losing for everyone. Lauren says she knows Patrick is going to write her name down but she’s not going to sit around and do nothing. Lauren talks to Ali and they discuss the challenge. Ali says he’s a competitive person and he’s supposed to be strong in challenges, but they didn’t win and she doesn’t know if it’s an advantage to keep him around. Lauren then talks to Ryan about Patrick and Ryan goes to Devon and Devon says what matters is everyone is coming to them. Ryan says he and Devon are in a position where they dictate the vote and it’s a big decision for them. Ryan says they can get rid of Lauren tonight and just do the boys to the merge and Devon says he’d rather go to the merge with Lauren than Patrick. Devon says if they keep Lauren around they are more likely to lose the next challenge. Lauren feels like she’s done everything she can do but she’s a hustler for a reason. If it is her going home, she won’t go home without a fight. Jeff asks Lauren at what point do you stop talking about how well you get along and start owning the fact it just isn’t working right now? Lauren says today, that challenge should have been a win for them, but one of them took it and tried to win it by themselves. Jeff says Patrick, she could only be talking about you and Lauren says she is. Patrick says he can see where she is concerned with him not winning that and there’s a point where it could be his fault. Lauren says she agrees, he shouldn’t have taken the whole time himself. Patrick says it’s an adrenaline rush. Lauren says we either lose together or win together and today we didn’t lose together. Jeff asks Ali what her take was on the challenge. Ali says Patrick did make an executive decision, but she doesn’t know if that has to do with anything. Even if they had switched out, who knows if it would have taken even longer. Patrick asks if that gives him some comfort and he says yes, he tried his best that he won’t be held totally accountable. Lauren says Patrick just doesn’t play as a team like today, and he is constantly looking for an idol. Lauren says she hasn’t looked for the idol yet, but maybe they should all be looking for them. Lauren says tonight, one of them is going to be blindsided and Patrick says someone will be blindsided for sure. Jeff says Ryan, it’s kind of like you’re in a relationship and Ryan interrupts and says he’s never been in a relationship. You know somebody? Jeff says he was going to say it’s kind of like if you’re in a relationship and you go to therapy and the therapist says let’s talk and get things moving. Ryan says he does feel that way because every member of the group is thinking it’s a happy group and they aren’t a happy group and they aren’t a successful group either. Jeff says Devon, is it possible part of the problem of the group is just chemistry and he says yeah, that’s where his vote is kind of going tonight. Lauren says that’s where her vote is going to. Ryan says whenever the merge comes we have to be able to best discern which groups we can best fit into because we have nothing to offer at this point. Patrick says he thinks that’s something he can offer because he can comfort people. Jeff says Ali, that sounds like an honest statement and Ali says that’s what he thinks. But we’ve been here for eight days and he hasn’t been able to get along with Lauren. Patrick says he is taking criticism so he can learn from it and grow for the experience. Jeff says to Ryan is it too big of a stretch to say that moments like that between Lauren, Ali, and Patrick can flip a tribe? Ryan says tribal council has so much momentum and you can gain so much because you can come together as a group and say this is the moment we’re going to shine up this crappy little tricycle and try and sell it to the other tribes that have had success. Now they aren’t saying they are going to be used as pawns but they also understand they aren’t coming in as CEO’s, they might be mopping the floor at first, but they aren’t giving up. They are the only tribe who is going to have real unity and that’s something unique about them that the others won’t have. Time to vote! Jeff is going to tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and wants to play it, now would be the time to do so. Once the votes are read, the decision is final. Jeff reads the votes. First vote, Patrick. Lauren. Patrick. Third person voted out of Survivor, Patrick. Patrick just sits there and looks at the others for a minute. He says they are awful. Jeff snuffs the torch and Patrick gives them another last look before leaving. Jeff says well tribal is an end for somebody, but it also appears to be a rebirth for the rest of the tribe. Next time on Survivor…just when you think you’re on top, the game flips upside down! They drop their buffs and they are switching tribes!
  3. The Voice (Season 13)

    The final night of the blind auditions is here! Adam starts the night needed 2 artists to complete his team, while Blake, Jennifer, and Miley each need one. Our coach’s will fight hard for the perfect voice’s to complete their teams. And Miley is on the verge of making Voice history. After the final chair turns, stay tuned for a sneak peek at this season’s game changing battles. The final blind audition’s start right now! As our coaches head to their chairs, the final artists of the blind auditions look forward to their turns on The Voice stage. Our first artist is Kristi Hoopes from Parker, CO. She’s loved country music since she was little, but she puts her own hippie chick spin on it. After high school, she moved to Murfreesboro, TN to study music and be close to Nashville. Kristi takes the stage and sings Heaven, Heartache, and the Power of Love by Trisha Yearwood. The judges are listening closely and Blake hears heels clicking. Blake hits his button and Adam hits a few moments later. Jennifer turns toward the end. Kristi is a 3-chair turn. Miley says she is what Adam was looking forward. Adam says he thinks Kristi is brilliant and not a cookie cutter artist. He thinks she can win this thing. Jennifer says she heard the sass and she has a big voice and Jennifer knows a little about that too. She says Kristi could go outside the norm. Blake says none of the other coaches probably even knew who sang that song. Blake says he knows there are artists that are her hero and it opens up the door for all eras of country music and that’s what he does. Miley says who do you pick as your coach? Blake says come on Kristi, this is for real. Kristi says in her gut, in her heart, and her soul she needs to pick…Blake. She feels Blake can get her to where she wants to be. Blake says there is no doubt about it, he has the team to beat. Blake’s team is full! The next artist to take the stage is Michael Kight and he’s from Dublin, GA. His dad raised him on Motown and Elvis and Johnny Cash. He taught himself how to play Folsom Prison Blues and his dad says he is very gifted. He says you might think he’s a country singer, but he’s more of a soul, pop guy. He’s been following Maroon 5 since Songs About Jane. He’s been in Nashville the last few years. Michael takes the stage and sings Sugar by Maroon 5, but with his own spin. The judges listen closely and Miley says it’s good. Adam hits his button as Michael gets into the chorus. Jennifer is looking like she wants to hit her button, but she’s holding back. Jennifer tells Adam Michael almost had her. Michael is a 1-chair turn. Miley says she messed up. Adam says there was no chance he wasn’t going with him. Adam says he did a cool interesting take on the song. Michael says he’s extremely excited. With three spots left, let’s see if the next artist can fight his way onto a team. Jeremiah Miller from Fort Worth, TX. He was a wrestler and so was his dad in high school. He talks about his diet to make the weight for his team. After wrestling season was over, he was in a couple of different boy bands. His mom says of all the things she’s seen him do it seems music is in his soul and what he’s most passionate about. He just graduated from high school and The Voice is important for him because of where he is in life. Jeremiah steps up to the stage and sings Slow Hands by Niall Horner. Adam hits his button pretty quickly and then Jennifer follows a few moments later. Miley is dancing in her seat, as is Blake. Jeremiah is a 2-chair turn. Miley says she’s excited to see what Jeremiah’s coach does with his voice because she’d like to hear more grittiness in his tone. Jennifer says she just left The Voice UK and she won and Adam says he’s won The Voice USA many times. Adam says he’s going to be honest, there were some flaws but there are some raw qualities that he liked. Jennifer says he seems like a full package and she thinks he could be major. Miley says who do you pick as your coach? Jeremiah says the first song he ever learned was Won’t Go Home Without You and Adam gets excited. Jeremiah says but…I pick Jennifer. Jennifer’s team is full! Serina Rae is the next artist who will perform and she just finished high school and was going to join the navy until she got the call to perform on The Voice. She covers Selena’s songs and she performs at restaurants in Florida. Her father went through two tours in Vietnam and her brother is a Marine and has been away for 2-years and is about to deployed again. The song she’s going to sing in Spanish and English. Serina sings Stand By Me by Ben E. King. Miley thinks there are two people. Adam also thinks it’s two people. Serina does not get a chair turn. Miley says woah! Adam says I thought you were one person! Adam says it was cool and she has a strong voice. Miley says when she sang in her upper range she had a full voice, but struggled with the lower notes. Blake thought it was cool the way she went back and forth between the languages. With the blind auditions nearing the end, Adam and Miley are feeling the pressure to find the perfect artists to complete their teams. We see Austin Serrato who sang Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers, Raycee Jones who sang We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off by Jermaine Stewart, and Nik Singleton who sang Wide Open Spaces by The Dixie Chicks, none of whom got a chair turn. Let’s see if the next artist has what Adam and Miley are looking for. Megan Rose is from San Francisco, CA. She grew up on country music and listened to that all her life. She went to college close to home because she likes being close to her family. Right now she tries to get out and perform, but being a country artist in San Francisco is difficult. Megan takes the stage and sings Ode to Billy Joe by Bobby Gentry. Blake tells them it’s good. Miley listens and looks at Adam. Miley says she’s going and she hits her button and Adam presses at the same time. Megan got a 2-chair turn. Miley says please pick me and she goes up to give Megan a hug. Adam invites Megan down to sit in his chair. Miley says she’s on the verge of making HERstory on The Voice because she’s about to have the first all-girl team. Adam says that means you have to compete with 11 other females and Miley says that’s powerful. Adam says as a coach, he wants Megan to be comfortable. Adam says her decision should be based on who will be the better coach for her. Jennifer says it would be so powerful to see an all-female team. Miley says she didn’t come here to do that, but she just followed the yellow brick road to Oz. Megan returns to the stage and Jennifer says it’s time for her to pick her coach. Megan says I pick…Miley. Miley says Megan is part of something so much bigger. Miley’s team is full! The final artist of the night is Gary Carpenter from Oswego, NY. He played baseball his entire life and he went to college to play baseball, but his grades suffered. He started singing in high school and his favorite show to do was Beauty and the Beast and he got to play Gaston. He does a lot of gigs at bars and restaurants and that’s where he met his fiance. His nerves are through the roof. Gary takes the stage and sings Home by Michael Buble. Adam turns and Gary gets emotional and his fiancé back stage is excited and crying. Miley starts peeking around the chair and Jennifer takes a peek too. Gary got the last chair turn. Adam says he did lose his mind when he turned, but he wanted to thank him because Gary gets to go home knowing he was the guy who he sat there waiting for driving everyone crazy. Adam’s team is full! Just when the artist’s thought making a team was hard, keeping their place on it will be a battle. Teammates must face off with a spot on their coach’s team at stake. To help our coaches prepare their artist’s for the fight of their lives, they invited country music superstars Rascall Flatts, Kelly Rowland, Joe Jonas, and Billy Ray Cyrus. The artists will have to dig deep if they hope to win or be stolen. The battles begin next week!
  4. The Voice (Season 13)

    Tonight, the final week of blind auditions begins. Jennifer begins the night with 9 artists, Miley has 8, while Adam and Blake each have 7. For the artist’s this is the chance of a lifetime. To fill their teams with the best voices in America, our coaches pull out all the stops. And one coach has a unique vision for her team. The final week of blind auditions starts right now! Let’s meet the first artist of the night, Chloe Kohanski from Juliet, Tn. She tells us her genre is psyche rock, like a 70s kind of vibe and she’s a huge Miley fan. No one in her immediate or extended family sings or is musical in any way. She has been working in a coffee shop and that’s how she makes ends meet. She’s excited for this opportunity and she really wants to make her parents proud. Chloe takes the stage and sings The Chain by Fleetwood Mac. The judges are bobbing their heads and Blake is singing along. Miley and Blake both hit their buttons as Chloe finishes the first chorus and Jennifer follows a moment later. Chloe is a 3-chair turn. Blake says that’s a Fleetwood Mac song and is she set on going down the rock path and Chloe says yes. Blake says he loved the lower register she has and his favorite was when her voice started to open that made her sound so unique. He’d love to have her on his team. Jennifer says her vibe was so cool and she seen a superstar and sass. Blake says Jennifer and Chloe would be too much sassiness. Miley says her dad had her riding around listening to Stevie and she aspired to be like Stevie and she can tell Chloe knows who she is and that’s what Miley specializes in. Blake says he thinks she can be in the finale and Jennifer says I think that too. Adam says Chloe it’s time to make your choice. Chloe thanks them and says they all don’t know how much what they said means to her but…she’s obsessed with Miley so she’s going to go with Miley. The next artist is tiny, she’s 4’11 and her name is Olivia Kay and she’s from Edmond, OK. She’s 13-years old and she just graduated eighth grade. She has a twin brother, Owen and he says Olivia is 60 second more mature than she is. She always leans more toward soulful songs and she’s been singing since she was 7. She sang the National Anthem the year Blake was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and she has a picture with him. Olivia heads up to the stage and she sings Ghost by Ella Henderson. She seems a little flat at the beginning and the judges are listening carefully. The judges all look at each other and no one turns. Miley gets up and gives her the biggest high five. Adam says this is a crazy time in her life to be doing this and he’s telling her not to stop doing this. Jennifer says she has a mature voice and once she figures out how to use it, no one will be able to touch her. Blake tells her she just needs to be able to control it and he tells her in another year she’ll be so much better. Olivia asks Blake to sign her picture. The next artist is very tall, he’s 6’8 and his name is Dennis Drummond from Nashville, TN. He says ceiling fans are an enemy, he doesn’t play basketball, and the weather up there is fine. He is originally from Ohio and his dad was a steel worker. He got his first guitar when he was 7 and he was in a blues band when he was 15. He’s been playing back-up for Adam Wakefield, who was the runner-up on season 10 and was on Team Blake. He’s ready to take this experience and grow from it. He says having Adam as a coach would be great because he loves his range. Dennis is on stage and sings She Talks to Angels by The Black Crowes. Adam hits his button very quickly. Jennifer is listening very closely. Blake looks deep in thought and he eventually hits his button. Dennis got a 2-chair turn. Adam asks Blake if he knows what band that song was by and he responds correctly. Jennifer likes his speaking voice and she would have loved to hear some of those textures in the song. Adam says he sang this song his way and he was excited until that nitwit turned around. Dennis tells them he plays for Adam Wakefield. Blake says he knows he’s a Nashville guy and it’s an interesting town because there are all kinds of genres there. He says let’s find the right songs and win this thing. Adam says he’s a guitar player and he shouldn’t forget that when he makes his choice. Miley says he looks undecided and Dennis says his mom is a Blake Shelton fan but he’s a huge Maroon 5 fan. Miley says Blake you might be toast. Dennis thanks them for the kind words they said but he has to go with his gut and he picks…Blake. The next artist is Ignatious Carmouche from Opelousas, LA. He is The Voice season 12 winner. Because he won the competition he got to fly out to LA and meet Adam Levine and he was invited to the blind auditions. He grew up in the church and was shy and would sing with his back to the congregation. He loves all kinds of music and he believes The Voice can be a stepping stone to where he wants to be as an artist. Ignatious takes the stage and sings Latch by Disclosure. The coaches are all listening intently and the crowd seems to enjoy it. Ignatious has gotten Jennifer’s attention and she starts to hit her button but stops. Miley says that’s beautiful. Jennifer final hits her button. Blake hits a minute later. Ignatious is a 2-chair turn. Adam recognizes him and says he can’t believe that’s Ignatious. He goes up to hug him and explains to the coaches who he is. Jennifer says he almost sounds like a saxophone with words and she is speechless. Blake says when he’s singing full voice, it’s incredible. But when he switches into that clear falsetto it’s effortless. He says what an incredible journey it would be for Ignatious to win the snapchat contest, to getting a chair to turn on the blind auditions, to being on the finale and winning. Adam is backing Jennifer. Jennifer says her whole career has been driven by passion and she’s passionate about him. Adam says Ignatious, who do you pick as your coach. He says this is a hard decision, he’s definitely a fan of all of them, but…he picks Jennifer. Let’s see if our next artist, Rebecca Brunner from Mason, MI. can make her music dreams a reality. She’s been singing since she was 5 and she knew as soon as she graduated high school she wanted to pursue music. She lives in Chicago, IL and she’s a nanny because music doesn’t pay the bills. She works on her music at night and does anything she can to pursue her dream. She’s going to pour her heart on the stage. Rebecca steps up and sings Believer by Imagine Dragons. The judges are listening. They coaches all look at each other. Blake looks like he wants to his button and hits it at the very last second. Rebecca is a 1-chair turn. Blake says what Rebecca just did was hard. He says the timing of her voice, the pitch, the power, he just wanted to wait and see what the others were going to do because he didn’t want to get screwed on this one. Blake says Rebecca you’re stuck with me and says she loves country and she’s excited to be on his team. Brandon Brown is the next artist and he is from Bronx, NY and he’s a violin teacher. He says he struggled in school and never felt like he fit in until he picked up the violin. His mom says he would try to find complicated pieces to play. He says The Voice is the only show that gives him the chance to work with four superstars and he’d like to work with Jennifer. Brandon hits the stage and sings Georgia On My Mind by Ray Charles. Adam hits his button very quickly. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake finally hits his button and turns and Jennifer turns a moment later. Brandon is a 3-chair turn. Adam says it’s a lost art to sing a song like that with subtlety and nuance and soul. He says there is something old school to sing that way and it’s tough to sing that song because they think of Ray Charles. Blake says he hears a little Willie Nelson and Adam says he’s lost his mind. Jennifer says she heard Donny Hathaway and Brandon says he loves Donny. Jennifer says Adam and Blake do the same thing every year and we see pictures of Adam laying across and begging and Blake pointing at himself. Jennifer says that style of music doesn’t really have a platform today. Jennifer says that sound is special. Adam says he’s really passionate, doesn’t he want leadership because he was the first to turn around. Blake wants to say one thing and he starts to point to himself. Miley says ok, Brandon, who do you pick as your coach. Brandon looks to his family and he says he…picks…Adam. Jennifer is shocked. Adam says Brandon is a timeless singer. Let’s meet the next artist. Nathan Graham is the next artist from Chicago, IL. Every time he’s out people think he’s James Harden and he gets stopped and asked for pictures. He’s a wine taster at a restaurant. He’s played guitar for 14 years and he’s playing in a blues rock band and teaching at the School of Rock. He likes The Voice because it’s not about how you look. Nathan is ready to perform and he sings Nobody to Blame by Chris Stapleton. The judges are bob their heads and listen and they all look at each other. Nathan does not get a chair to turn. Blake says this sucks. He appreciated the gravelly sound of his voice but it overtook some of the vocals. Miley says he has a modern, Bohemian take on country music. Adam tells him to keep at it. Our next performer is Whitney Fenimore from Tulsa, OK. She grew up singing in the church and she played in different Christian music bands, but she decided she wanted to reach more than just that group of people. She moved out to LA and she’s played a lot of shows and you don’t know if you’re going anywhere. She started to be overwhelmed and she had panic attacks and her dad came to take her back home. She’s so thankful for her family and friends and she started singing at a coffee shop. The Voice is the first big thing she’s done since she’s gotten better. Whitney is going to sing Hold On, We’re Going Home by Drake featuring Majid Jordan. Jennifer is bobbing a little in her chair and singing along. Adam is looking at Miley and then reaches for his button with Miley right behind. Whitney is a 2-chair turn. Miley says her best friend is from Oklahoma and Adam says mine too. Miley says she’s the first one in Voice history to have an all-female team and she wants to keep that going. She thinks females sometimes get lost and are told they have to change themselves for the market. Adam talks about Christina Grimmie being the first to do that song and he says Whitney’s a great singer. Adam thinks there are some things she needs to work on, but they are minor. Miley says it’s that magic time and Adam says who do you pick as your coach. Whitney says it’s so hard because she respects both of their careers so much, but Adam, Songs about Jane, she picks Adam! Our next artist is Ilianna Viramontes from Brentwood, CA. Her dad was an FBI agent and that was hard, especially when she tried to date boys. Her family moved around a lot and it would be hard because just as she got comfortable, they moved again. Her only passion growing up was gymnastics. She started singing in her school choir her junior year and she got to perform at Carnegie Hall, but she’s never performed solo. As an artist, she sees herself as pop and she hopes the coaches hear the uniqueness in her voice. She missed graduation to be there. Ilianna takes the stage and sings New Soul by Yael Naim. The coaches are all dancing in their chairs. Miley is watching Jennifer and Blake. Miley reaches forward and hits her button and Blake hits his at virtually the same time. Ilianna is a 2-chair turn. Blake says he loved her voice and he’s not blind he could see how excited she was when Miley turned her chair. Blake thinks the way she was able to navigate that melody with perfect pitch was great and he could tell she was smiling. Miley says when Ilianna was singing she could hear some Patsy Cline or Tammy Wynette and they can try some different things. She would love to work with her. Adam says Ilianna, who do you pick as your coach? Blake says don’t fall for that crap! Ilianna says I pick…I pick Miley. Next we see a quick clip from Katrina Rose who sang Kozmic Blues by Janis Joplin who was picked up by Miley.

The coaches are all listening and Jennifer finally decides to hit her button. Meagan is a 1-chair turn. Miley says her voice was amazing. Adam says he loves her too. Blake loves the fact she took that song and changed it up and she needed to be on JHud’s team. Jennifer says she’s a firm believer in people being themselves. Jennifer says that shows how great of singer she is based on how she took that song and did that with it. Let’s meet the final artist of the night, Jon Mero from Atlanta, GA. He was a musical person growing up and when he was 14 he seen Whitney Houston in The Preacher’s Wife and it inspired him to want to sing. He was originally from Iowa and he moved to Atlanta about 6 years ago because it’s the Hollywood of the south. He’s in a band and they play a lot of weddings or parties.

All four coaches are on their feet. Jennifer says Jon wasn’t coming to The Voice today, he was coming to his show. Adam says he has a tremendous voice and he thinks about Prince. He says it would be an honor to work with him because he could see this as a step on the never ending staircase of his career. Jennifer says we could tell you believed everything you sang and you are a star. She loves to see when people own their moment and she hopes they can make many more moments together. Blake says if he had done some of the moves Jon did he’d have hyperextended his knee. Blake says he wanted to hit his button for him because he is incredible. Miley says she doesn’t like to give up and she is a super dedicated coach. She was last to hit her button because she wanted to listen and she was inspired. Adam says he needs passion and fire.

His family is supportive of him and his brother shoots his videos and his sister helps promotes him. His father used to work on The Voice behind the scenes and he’s proud Anthony is doing this on his own. Anthony says all the time he’s spent on the set with his dad he never got to meet the coaches and now he gets that opportunity. He really hopes Adam will turn but he thinks any coach would be good. Anthony is the first to hit the stage and he sings Redbone by Childish Gambino. Adam hits his button first. Jennifer follows along a minute later and then Miley also hits her button. Blake is listening and bobbing his head. Miley tells Jennifer he’s so good and Jennifer agrees he has a good voice. Miley tells Adam he’s so cool. Anthony is a 3-chair turn. Adam wants to know why Blake didn’t press his button. Blake says he heard so many different influences in Anthony’s voice and he didn’t want to be humiliated on this one. Jennifer says he’s adorable. Jennifer says he had some range and heard some maybe Prince in there in his voice. Jennifer says she’s extremely passionate about his talent and she wants to help him get there. Miley says he came out and was so professional and she wants to learn from him and help him get better. She wants to win this season. Adam says the diversity of his voice is very special and he thinks he can almost quietly win the show. Adam says he can help him with his falsetto. Adam truly believes this is it and he’s so unbelievably passionate to have Anthony on his team. Blake says Anthony, who do you pick as your coach? Anthony listens to the crowd and says he picks…he points around and says Adam. We’re back with the coaches whistling the tune to The Andy Griffith Show. The next artist is Sophia Bollman from Norco, Ca. She’s going to sing a Kelly Clarkson song because she relates to it. Her mom is there and says all of her hard work brought her to this point. She was in a classic rock band and played for different artists and Carson shows her a video from Gene Simmons wishing her luck. She just graduated high school and now she wants to pursue music full time. She’s ready to show what she can do. Sophia heads to the stage and she sings Invincible by Kelly Clarkson. Blake looks deep in thought as he listens. Miley keeps looking back and forth between Adam and Jennifer. Sophia hits a big note and the crowd cheers. She hits another big note as she’s getting close to finishing her song. Blake hits towards the end and Miley follows at the last second. Sophia got a 2-chair turn. Blake says she has an incredible pop soulful voice. He knows this isn’t his lane but he’s worked with artists like her and he thought she needed to be in the competition so he hit his button. Miley says she likes Sophia’s shoes. Miley thinks she has an amazing voice and she had moments that weren’t as strong. Miley says she has range and she thinks she could go far on the show and she’d like to be part of it. Jennifer says she does have a really big voice and asks who some of her favorite artists are and Sophia says Kelly Clarkson, Pink, and Miley. Sophia says Blake would be a cool dad and Blake says you’re probably my daughter. Adam says Sophia! Who do you pick as your dad…coach? Sophia says well…she goes with Miley. Miley says she has an all-girl team so far but if the right dude came around, she’s really unbiased. Next to the stage is Jessica Rowboat from Queens, NY. She was born in India and moved to America when she was 8. Her family came her for better opportunities. She was going to apply for a job when she was 16 and she learned her family was undocumented and she felt fear and like she didn’t belong. She met her husband and through her marriage they were able to sponsor her parents and make their dreams come true. Jessica sings Imagine by John Lennon while she plays the guitar. Miley says right away she has a cool voice. The coaches are all listening intently and Blake is bobbing his head. Miley says again that she sounds cool. Jessica is closing her song out and the judges all hesitate but no one turns. Miley says it was really pretty. Jennifer says it was beautiful and she could feel her heart in it. Miley says it’s so hard not to turn around because of the message of the song but she didn’t get to hear enough of her voice. Blake says she’s doing what she was born to do and make those moments happen. Adam says she should come back and do a song that’s a little more energetic. Adam has made a paper plane but it didn’t fly well. While Adam gets settled we’ll meet our next artist. Karli Webster is a music major from Santa Clarita, Ca. She likes hanging out around the music complex and listening to the music people create. She takes music courses as well as accounting so she gets the best of both worlds. She has won 8 state championships playing piano. Her mom raised her on all the 70s female song writers and has really influenced her path. She feels like this is her chance and where she’s supposed to be. She’d be honored to be on any of the coach’s teams. Karli takes the stage and sings You’re So Vain by Carly Simon. Adam and Miley immediately hit their buttons and Miley says she loves her voice. Miley tells Adam she’s going to go hard and Adam says he wants her. Karli gets a 2-chair turn and Miley and Adam are both standing. Miley and Adam argue over each standing up and they agree to sit at the same time. Adam says the spirit of Carly Simon was in her performance and she can go all the way. Miley asks why she picked that song and Karli says she was named after Carly Simon. Miley says the way she wants to revive 70s music and make it current is something she can help with and make a mark in HERstory. She would love to have Karli join her team because she is incredible. Adam says he has a lot of men on his team, but she has his favorite voice of anyone in the competition and losing the opportunity to work with her would be a huge loss for him. Jennifer says who do you want as your coach? Karli says this is crazy and says she picks…Miley. Miley apologizes to Adam but she’s making herstory. Karli says she picked Miley because she seems to understand where she’s going. Let’s see if Blake can get in the game with the next artist. We meet Stephan Marcellus from Englewood, NJ and he’s a soul artist. When he was in college he wanted to go into child therapy but he realized he wanted to impact people spiritually through music. He is really stepping out on faith and he’s determined to fly because this is what he wants to do. Stephan heads to the stage and sings Take Me To Church by Hozier. His nerves get the best of him at the beginning and he looks shaken as he missed the first note. Carson looks concerns as does his family. Jennifer leans forward and hits her button as Stephan recovers. Adam and Miley look at each other. Jennifer is writing down some notes in her notebook. No other coaches turn and Stephan is a 1-chair turn. Adam asks what his name and he asks what happened in the beginning and Stephan says he didn’t hear the right note. Adam says what’s crazy is something was going wrong and they all heard him find it and the next thing he knew Jennifer turned around. Jennifer says it was because she was in the same position before because she forgot the words to a song and just because of that doesn’t mean you can’t sing. Jennifer thinks with the right direction he can get there because he does have a great voice. Blake says Jennifer is your hero and she swooped down and saved you and welcome to The Voice. Let’s meet 24-year old Emily Luther from Woonsocket, RI. She’s the first musician in her family and she loves music and practicing. She fell in love with musical theater when she was 8 or 9. Her mom say Emily always liked being on stage, but she’s always been accident prone. After high school, she got accepted to Berkley College of Music and she made the decision to move out to Los Angeles. She has sung back-up for Dionne Warwick and she eventually signed a record deal but there was a negative side to it. They wanted her to change her hair and said her skin wasn’t perfect and her teeth weren’t perfect and she couldn’t get through so she moved back to Rhode Island. She’s been through the highs and lows and now she feels she’s ready for it. Emily is ready to perform on stage and she sings Summertime by Ella Fitzgerald. Blake says that’s good. The crowd seems to enjoy her and cheers and the judges are listening. Jennifer is bobbing back and forth in her seat. Blake raises his hand and brings it down on his button. Emily is coming to the end of the song and Jennifer says she’s going in and Adam hits his button. Jennifer then hits her button. Emily is a 3-chair turn. Adam says he was so mesmerized by what Emily was doing he almost forgot to hit his button. She has such a 60s, syrupy, jazzy tone and it’s such a cool approach to the show. Jennifer says she has a great balance of everything and it was very smooth. She heard some Barbara Streisand and she’d love that on her team because her voice is flexible. Blake says he really got into that performance and when she started singing he wanted a martini, and he doesn’t even drink martinis. He says no one has anyone like her on their team because she’s so unique. Adam says as far as he was concerned the room was filled with smoke and there were jazz guys behind her. He was visualizing it and working with her would be an amazing, unique opportunity and he needs her on his team. Blake says she’s badly need on HIS team. Miley says she has no idea where she’s going to go but it’s time for her to pick a coach. Emily hesitates and thinks and says…Team Adam. Adam says he finally prevailed and got some girl power and she is a whole different chapter of his team. Blake says today he got nobody on his team, but this is his 13th season and he can’t wait to see what happens.
  6. The Voice (Season 13)

    We begin the night with a message from The Voice. We are all profoundly shaken by the horrific tragedy that occurred last night in Las Vegas, which was especially heartbreaking knowing that people were gathered in celebration of life, love, and music. “The Voice” stands in unity with all those affected, and hopes the power of music will continue to inspire, comfort, and bring us together. Let’s meet our first artist of the night Adam Cunningham from Nashville, Tn. Adam sings in studios for demos to pitch songs to artist’s for a living. He says he’s fortunate to get to do what he loves to support his family. Adam takes the stage and sings Midnight Rider by The Allman Brothers Band. Blake hits his button pretty quickly and immediately gets on his feet. Jennifer and Adam are looking at each other and Adam begs Jennifer to hit her button. Jennifer gets to her feet and Miley is encouraging her to hit her button. Jennifer sits back down and hits on the last note. Adam got a 2-chair turn. Adam says he was thinking about it but he didn’t want to cry today but then he seen Jennifer turn and he was like, here we go. Miley says Adam could benefit from Jennifer because she’s full of soul and Blake might be the obvious choice but Jennifer did win the last season of The Voice UK. Jennifer says she can teach him something about soul which is something Blake can’t do. Blake says country music is the story of those of us who listen to music on the radio. He loves that he’s from Nashville. Jennifer says did you know I auditioned for a show like this? Adam says this should be interesting, who do you pick as your coach? Adam C. thanks Jennifer and he has a lot of respect for her, but he picks Blake for his coach. The next artist is Hannah Mrozak from Richfield, Wi. She’s done musicals and started a band when she was 13. She says she has a loving, supportive, energetic family and her brother is the one who pushed her to audition for the show. Last year, her brother Mason committed suicide. Her brother would want her to have the greatest time on stage and she knows this is just the beginning. Hannah takes the stage and sings Starving by Hailee Steinfeld. Blake seems to enjoy it and hits his button pretty quickly. Adam turns his chair right after and Jennifer follows along behind. Miley is listening carefully. Hannah is a 3-chair turn. Adam says she could be a really proficient singer and still not have tone, but she does. He says people adore this style of music and it’s been done wrong so many times, and when you hear someone do it right it’s so refreshing. He thinks she should make a smart decision and choose him as her coach. Jennifer says she’s a beautiful girl with a beautiful voice and she has the tools she needs to transcend into the music industry. Blake asks where she’s from and says he’s performed in Wisconsin. He says she seems like a back-up singer because she has such comfort on the stage and she seemed oblivious to the chaos going on. He’d be honored to have her on his team. Adam says his team is all male and she’d have a marquee position on his team. Jennifer says you should ask why he doesn’t have any females and you should beware of Blake because he called you a back-up singer. Miley says it’s time to pick your coach. Hannah thanks them all for turning around and seeing something in her, but she has to pick…Adam. While the coaches get settled again we’re going to meet the next artist Shilo Gold from Denver, Co. She went to a performing arts school and Berkley in Boston. She booked over 85 shows in 7 countries being her own manager and own booking agent and trying to connect with as many people as possible. Her journey has led her to The Voice and she’s a big fan of the coaches but if she got to pick, she’d pick Jennifer Hudson. Shilo takes the stage and sings Stay With Me Baby by Lorraine Ellison. The coaches all look at each other and listen intently. They keep hesitating and looking at each other. Shilo is finishing her song and Jennifer and Miley both hit at the very last second. Shilo got a 2-chair turn. Adam asks her if she thought it was over because they waited until the very last second. Blake says he thought aww, too bad but then oh, she’s in. He was shocked. Miley says she has Jennifer’s range and her rasp and if they could combine their voices, it might be her. Jennifer doesn’t think she’s ever heard a voice like hers because it’s so unique. Adam says Shilo, who do you pick as your coach? Shilo takes a minute and then picks…Miley. She says that was the hardest decision and she thinks Miley will be the best coach for her voice. Our next artist is Samantha Rios from Arlington, Va. She’s a first generation American and she likes to sing in English and Spanish. She thinks the song she’s going to sing is perfect for her because it has a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of soul. Samantha is ready to perform and she sings Something’s Got a Hold On Me by Etta James. Adam and Jennifer are bobbing their heads. Adam says he could hear a great voice but he was waiting for another gear and that’s why he didn’t connect with it. Jennifer says she didn’t tap into the low notes like she did the high notes. Jennifer says she has to sing those low notes too. Jennifer says she hopes Samantha takes their notes and comes back. She thinks it was just a matter of a different song. The next artist is Noah Mac from Dublin, Ca. He’s 17 and a few years ago he turned a shed in his back yard into a music studio and that’s where he spends most of his time. His music is influenced by soul, R&B, and gospel. His father says it’s like he’s made out of music. Noah says his parents first noticed his love of music when he asked to perform at his sister’s funeral. His mom says it took them out of their saddest moment for a second because his singing was so beautiful. Noah comes onto the stage and sings Way Down We Go by Kaleo. The crowd immediately likes it. Adam is bobbing his head and looking at the other coaches. Blake readjusts and looks down the line. Jennifer is listening closely and then hits her button as he hits a high note. Blake looks like he’s reluctant but hit his button. Noah is a 2-chair turn. Jennifer says he was so passionate and it came from his soul and she felt it. She says he was taking her on a journey and she felt like she was on a roller coaster. Blake says his voice is so powerful and when he got into the upper parts of the vocal his voice stayed round like they were in the lower vocal and that’s rare. Blake says a man that can sing at his own sister’s funeral can handle the pressure of The Voice. Adam says ok, Noah, it’s time. Who do you pick as your coach? Noah hesitates and looks around and says he’s going to have to pick…Blake. Next let’s meet Davon Fleming from Baltimore, Md. His love was music and church and he’s a worship leader and he works with a few choirs arranging music. His mom wanted to be a singer but when she had children her dreams got put on hold. He says it means a lot for him to be there because the coaches are grade A superstars. Davon steps up and begins to sing Me and Mrs. Jones. Jennifer hits her button immediately, followed by Miley, Adam, and then Blake. All four coaches have turned very quickly and they all get to see him perform. Jennifer has her shoe off and we see Carson and his family backstage with their shoes off and Jennifer finally throws her shoe. Davon is a 4-chair turn. Jennifer says Davon can sing and asks where he’s from. He answers and says Adam is standing up? Adam says if you don’t pick me I’ll sit down. Jennifer says she’s never seen the panel this speechless. Blake says he’ll be in the finale and Miley says 100%. Miley says she got to see his whole performance and it was inspiring. Jennifer asks who inspired him and he says his mom and Whitney Houston and Jennifer says her too! Jennifer says she started out just like him on a stage like this. Jennifer asks what his favorite Whitney song is and he says he grew up on The Bodyguard soundtrack and Miley says her godmother wrote the song I Will Always Love You. She says to her it’s a Dolly Parton song, to Jennifer it’s a Whitney song. Jennifer goes up and sings I Will Always Love You with him. Adam says he needs to say one thing, he says having a bond and a connection is great, but having someone who will help him achieve what he wants to is important and he shouldn’t be discounted as coach. Blake says if he wants to inspire the most amount of people he can inspire, that can come with winning The Voice and he happens to special in winning the show. Adam says ok, it’s time to pick your coach. Davon says he picks….please help him Jesus. He’s going to have to pick…Jennifer. The next artist is Kathrina Feigh from the Philippines. She grew up in the Philippines and they would have a karaoke machine in the front yard and having a singing party. Her family is very close knit. She was 9 when they moved to Los Angeles and her parents are giving her support and love to help her make her dreams come true. She says her parents were a little nervous when she said she wanted to go to school for music because they wanted her to be a pharmacist or a nurse, but they support her. Kathrina is ready to perform and she sings Big White Room by Jessie J. The coaches are listening and the crowd is starting to get into it. Blake is sitting there with his hand on his button. Jennifer has her hand on her button and says she likes her and finally presses and then Blake hits at the very last second. She’s a 2-chair turn. Jennifer didn’t even see Blake turn his chair. Miley thinks Kathrina should work with Jennifer. Jennifer says her voice was amazing and she couldn’t help but turn her chair. Blake says there’s a very broad spectrum of what he thinks she could be musically and she’s the kind of artist that can get him to turn around and he has to have that on his team. Miley says Kathrina, who do you pick as your coach. Kathrina says I pick…Jennifer. As the night wore on, Jennifer and Blake continued hearing voices they wanted for their teams. We see Alexandra Joyce who sang Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift and she was a 3-chair turn with Adam, Blake, and Jennifer, and she picked Jennifer. We see Eric Lyn who sang Ooh Child by The Five Stairsteps and he was a 1-chair turn by Jennifer. Next we see Anna Catherine DeHart who sang I Could Use a Love Song by Maren Morris who was a 2-chair turn with Blake and Adam and she picked Blake. The next artist to perform is Addison Agen from Ft. Wayne, In. Her dad owns a record store so music is around all the time. Her dad just had a stage put in the store and she was the first to perform on it. Her mom is a music therapist with the elderly. Her genre is alternative folk and all the coaches would be great for. Addison takes the stage and sings Jolene by Ray LaMontagne. Adam hits his button first. Miley hits her a few moments later. She gets emotional at the very end and she is a 2-chair turn. Adam says Addison is one of his favorite singers. He says she’s 16 and sang like a grown woman. He says she’s full of life and power and emotional and he’s a huge fan of her and probably the most talented person her age since Danielle Bradbury. Miley says she feels like she can relate to her in a way Adam can’t. Miley says all those little cracks in her voice she had too. Adam says but he’s her biggest fan. Blake says ok, Addison, who do you pick as your coach? Addison says she really just, she has to go with…Miley. She feels like she’s a younger version of Miley. We’re going to meet an artist with a familiar face. We see Adam Pearce who auditioned last season. Adam says he went home and was disappointed and he couldn’t ask for a more supportive wife. He consulted two vocal coaches who gave him some drills. He says he was born in the wrong generation, he loves classic rock. He’s going to sing a Foreigner song and his mom loves the song choice. He thinks what’s cool this time around is there are two new singers who haven’t heard him yet. Adam takes the stage and sings Hot Blooded by Foreigner. Adam is bobbing his head and Blake is leaned forward. Adam looks at Miley and hits his button with Miley hitting with him. Blake is still listening and bobbing his head and Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Adam got a 2-chair turn. Blake says second time’s a charm. Adam says you look familiar and Adam P. says he was advised to come back and he’s so excited. Miley says she’ll change her name to Adam he was so amazing and her mom is probably on a table somewhere banging her head. Adam says people were cheering for Adam P. before he started. Jennifer says she loved his sass and conviction but she didn’t want to compete with the other two. Blake supports Miley as a coach for Adam P. Adam says this needs to go the way we think it needs to go. Adam says it’s time for you to pick. Adam P. hesitates and considers and he picks Adam. Hopefully, our coaches for the next artist, Myles Frost from Washington D.C. His grandmother had a little piano and when he was 5 he would listen to music in the car with her and he played a song after hearing a song on the radio. Since then he’s learned 4 other instruments. He plays saxophone, drums, tuba, and trumpet, but his favorite instrument to play is piano. His mom is so proud and he just graduated from high school and she couldn’t be more excited for him. Myles takes the stage and sings My Cherie Amour by Stevie Wonder. The coaches are looking at each other and listening. He does not get any chairs to turn. Adam says he could hear the beauty in his voice, but he could also hear the nerves. Adam tells him to go work on his craft and come back. Jennifer says Stevie Wonder is not easy to sing and on a song like that you have to control the melody. The final artist of the night is Moriah Formica from Latham, NY. Her dad brought her up on 80s hair metal and she’s been singing when she was 9. She started taking voice lessons when she was 11 and that was when she realized she wanted to do this. Her brother is her best friend and her mood improves when he’s around. She’d be thankful for anyone to turn around for her. Adam would be her first choice, but Jennifer is great. Moriah takes the stage with a guitar and sings Crazy On You by Heart. The coaches are looking at each other and Adam says she’s really good. Miley is the first to hit her button. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake hits his button with Adam right behind and Jennifer follows along. Moriah got a 4-chair turn. Miley says she had a feeling her voice was going to be bigger than she was going to be. Adam says a pint sized power house. Jennifer says she just proved it doesn’t matter how old you are if you put your time and passion in your craft. Jennifer would support her path. Blake says when someone likes her comes out and she has all that talent it’s almost not fair but it’s about having someone in her corner who believes in her. She should join team Blake. Miley says she’s the youngest on the panel and she could give big sister voice. She could keep her head on her shoulders and she’d loved to be her coach. Adam says she’s an old soul and she showed him she has a good knowledge of rock and roll music. He thinks she’s the next great female rock singer. Adam says Moriah, who do you pick as your coach. Moriah says she feels like she has to pick…Miley. Moriah says she completely had her because she was a child star and she felt more of a connection with that.
  7. Survivor 35: Episode Recaps

    Survivor is back! 18 strangers are about to begin an adventure that will forever change their lives. They’ll be abandoned and forced to work together while voting each other out in the greatest social experiment on television. In the end, only one will remain to claim the million-dollar prize. 39 days. 18 people. 1 survivor! Welcome to the 35th season of Survivor. For the first time ever, you have been divided into three tribes by traits most associated with you by others. This is how the world sees you. First group, you are the hero tribe. You are heralded for your courage, your achievements, your ideals for which you stand. He asks a guy in a cowboy hat his name and he says Ben. Jeff asks if that rings true for him, what is his world about? Ben says he has a family and was in the marine corps and served his country and it was just his job. Chrissy tells us she definitely feels like she belongs on the hero tribe. Next group is the Healer tribe. They receive gratitude for their acts of service for helping others heal their physical or emotional pain. We meet Cole who takes out disadvantaged teens who struggle with addiction and they teach them survival skills in the outdoors. We meet Mike who says he’s a sex doctor. He specializes in sexual dysfunction in male infertility. The last group is the Hustler tribe. They are respected for their hard work ethic. Their mantra is get it done no matter what 100% all the time. We meet Allie who is a personal assistance. We meet Ryan who’s a bellhop and he thinks they have a strong group. He’s a 125 lbs soaking wet and he’s going to have to rely on his tribe. Jeff hands out the tribe’s buffs. This is their first opportunity to prove their value to their tribe. The boat is loaded with supplies. Their job is to get as many supplies from the boat they’re on to their tribe boat. They show a shot of a secret advantage. Jeff continues there is an even bigger reward at stake. On the beach each tribe has a burning urn 15 feet high. When Jeff rings a bell, that’s their cue to get all 6 tribe members on the boat and paddle to shore. When they get to shore they must lift one person high enough to light their torch. The first tribe to get fire, wins fire in the form of a massive fire making kit that will be waiting for them back at camp. Second place tribe, not as pretty but they get flint which they can use to make fire. The last tribe to finish, otherwise known as the losers, will go back to camp with no fire. This is day one of a 39 day million-dollar adventure and it begins now. They begin scrambling for supplies and throwing them overboard. People are already going overboard without getting many supplies at all. Ryan from the Hustlers has found the secret advantage. Jeff rings the bell and everyone must get off the supply boat and get their tribe boat and row towards shore. Hustler tribe is struggling to get in their boat. Healers are leading, with Heroes on their tale and Hustlers rowing the wrong way. Healers are first to the beach, with the Heroes right behind them. Healers get fire and a massive fire reward. Hustlers still haven’t made it to the beach. Healer tribe won the massive fire kit and they will know they are at their beach when they see the fire already burning. Heroes win flint. Each tribe has a map in their boat and they can get in and start paddling. Ali is hoping their work ethic and strength alone can get it done, but at this point she’s very nervous. As the Healers row in they see the biggest fire they’ve ever seen. We meet Jessica and she talks about Cole being Tarzan, he’s ripped. Joe is a probation officer and he wanted to be on a tribe he can easily manipulate and if you’re a healer you have a big heart. He’s in rehabilitation, but out there he’s not an officer and they are all his victims at this point. At the Hero camp, Ashley is a life guard and she says game on and the hero cape is off. She talks to a fellow tribemate, JP, and says she likes cowboy. We meet Alan who is a former NFL player and he is here to play the game. He talks to Ben as they gather bamboo and discuss who they want to work with and talk about wanting strength. Alan has been watching JP and Ashley and he thinks they are working together. Ben tells us they are looking at a core 4, him, JP, Alan, and Ashley. They are younger and fit and they have the 2 moms, Chrissy and Trina. They labelled them the mom squad and that’s an easy target at this point. Winning is the most important thing right now for the tribe. We see the Hustlers camp and they are deciding where to build their shelter. Lauren is a fisherman and she’s disappointed they lost the first challenge, but they are strong and they need to work together. Ali says her priorities for day 1 is to make sure she’s meshing well with people and she wants to see where Patrick’s head is at because he seems to be meshing well with others. She talks to him and he says they have to win the first tribal though. They agree to have each other’s back. Patrick is wondering who got the clue on the boat. Ryan is dying to know what his advantage is and he goes off by himself and he opens the package. He found a super immunity idol. It can be played AFTER the votes have been read and can save whoever he plays it for. He says that gives him so much power. He reads further that it comes with a twist. It is only good at the first tribal council. If his tribe wins immunity, then his tribe won’t go to tribal council. In that case, he must send it to somebody on the losing tribe so they can use it at tribal council. The recipient will not know who sent it. He says he has the most power right now in the game and no one has any clue whatsoever. Mike tells us his son told him to go look for the idol. He says if his 10-year old knows to look for it then he should do that and so should everyone else. He is willing to do what it takes to win. Joe thinks Mike is out looking for the idol and he doesn’t think Mike is a trustworthy guy. Joe confront Mike and says he’s kind of suspect running around the island and Mike says he didn’t find it. Mike doesn’t trust Joe for one second. Joe tells Mike he wants him to be aware that everyone else is aware. Back at the Hustler tribe, Ryan is talking about how crucial first impressions are and he likes Devon being in the group. Ryan says he seems like a guy who is looking for someone who is more strategically sound and he wants to build a connection. He tells him about the super idol. Devon says him and Ryan have the same mindset and chemistry and they are going to cause havoc together. It’s now night time and we’re at the Heroes tribe and Alan tells us he knows there’s something going on between JP and Ashley and he needs to let others know because those two could be strong together. Alan confronts JP and wants to know if he has an idol. JP and Ashley says he’s tripping out. Alan says he just put a target on their back which was his goal. JP says Alan is a crazy man and his drama he causes might not be worth his strength. Ashley says Alan is starting to lose his mind because he made JP strip to prove he didn’t have an idol. Ashley says just like that trust is out the window and moving forward with him could be a liability down the road. It’s time for the first immunity challenge! For today’s challenge they are going to race up a cargo net to the top of a tower. They’ll then pull a heavy cart up, climb in, and then careen down to the bottom where they will find a choice of three Survivor table mazes. First tribe here gets first choice. Second tribe to arrive chooses between the remaining two and the last tribe gets what’s left. They’ll then work together to get that maze to the top of a taller tower where two players will maneuver three balls through the maze. First two tribes to finish win immunity. Jeff reveals the immunity idols. Hustlers are still competing for fire in the form of flint and at tribal council, tie votes are back in. All tribes are quickly up to the top and they start pulling the cart. All of them have their carts and they all head down. Heroes are here first and they choose the third puzzle, Hustlers got the second choice, and Healers get what’s left. Next phase is getting the maze to the top. Lauren and Ryan for the Hustlers, Cole and Joe are up for the Healers, and Alan and Ashley are going up for the Heroes. Joe is taking a long time to get to the cop but he finally gets up there. Hustlers have their puzzle first with Heroes right behind. Healers are last up. Chrissy and Ben for the Heroes are working on the puzzle, Devon and Ali for the Hustlers, and Mike and Desi are doing theirs for the Hustlers. Healers have their first ball in. Heroes are figuring it out and Hustlers have their first point. All tribes have their first ball. Healers have their second ball. Hustlers are close to their second. Heroes are close and they are in and out and they finally drop with Hustlers right behind. All tribes now have two balls. Healers win first immunity. We need one more. Hustlers are very close to closing out and Heroes are through their tough spot. Heroes ball went in and out and then Hustlers went in and out as well. Hustlers ball rattles around and finally drops and they win immunity sending the Heroes tribe to tribal council. Hustlers got their flint. Chrissy from the Heroes is down on her knees and Jeff is asking if she’s all right. She vomits and Jeff says they have medical there if she needs it. Jeff says that’s what tribes are all about, they are there for each other. Jeff tells them all they can head out. Ryan says he has to decide who to give his super idol to. He can give it to someone in the minority and get out a threat and change the game. We’re at the Heroes camp as they return from the immunity challenge. Ashley tells us before last night the vote was easy but Alan created a spectacle out of nothing. In less than 12 hours everything went from them being 100% safe solid four to there really is no trust. Alan says Ashley and JP think he’s in their four but he doesn’t trust them. Trina and Chrissy talk to Alan and he says he thinks it’s him. Trina says them three with Ben could be a four. Ben says if everyone had just stuck to the plan it’d be fine but everything has blown up. Ben says there are two ways him and Alan can go. They can go with the mom squad and get Ashley out or go with Ashley and JP and get Trina or Chrissy out. Ben is concerned Ashley and JP could have something but he wants to keep their tribe strong. It’s going to come down to who they trust more. Chrissy was getting ready for tribal and she sees a package in her bag. She opens it and she has been selected to receive the super idol. She says how luck did she get. She says the decision with what she does is extremely important, especially since half the tribe is on the chopping block. She wants to see what plays out and let the discussion at tribal council dictate how she plays it. Heroes go into tribal council and they get their torches and get fire. Jeff asks Ben if he’s thinking the game really does move this fast. Ben says it’s exciting and scary but it’s the game they came to play. Jeff asks Chrissy what was the vibe the first few moments they hit the beach. She says she didn’t fit in and Jeff says really? She says she thought the four physical threat together and Jeff asks who that is and she answers JP, Ashley, Alan, and Ben. Jeff asks Katrina if she had the same feeling and she says yeah. Jeff says one of the unique things about the game, Ashley, they might never meet and people out here tell you what they think, true or not. Ashley tells Jeff about the Alan confrontation with JP. Jeff says so JP you’re wrapped up this as well and JP says I guess so, but it’s part of the game. Jeff says Chrissy, one thing about Survivor is when you’re linked to someone else, that’s seen as two votes. Chrissy says yeah that was the concern that was a power couple this early. Ashley says it’s ridiculous to throw out the term power couple this early when she’s had no conversation alone with JP. Alan says he just wanted to let the tribe know that there was something stronger in the tribe than just the tribe. Ben says they shouldn’t bicker because they are Heroes and they need to follow their plan and make their team strong and hash things out later. Jeff says to Alan that it sounds like Ben has another plan that he wants to happen? Alan says definitely, he could have sat back with his feet up and be comfortable and get rid of Chrissy or Katrina, but that’s the risk he had to take to let people know something else was going on. Chrissy thinks it’s unwise to lose her skills at this point. Katrina says she thinks it’s a point where everyone is on the chopping block and if they can be honest about what’s happening they will get further as a tribe. Ben says he isn’t sure what’s happening tonight and they will have to do damage control no matter what happens. It’s time to vote! Jeff will go and tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and you want to play it, now will be the time to do so. Jeff will read the votes. First vote Katrina. Ashley. Katrina. Katrina. First person voted out of Survivor is Katrina. That’s four that’s enough. Chrissy watches and does not use her idol. Jeff says while the vote was united, this tribe is clearly not. Grab your torches, head back to camp. Good night! Next time on Survivor… there’s a new power couple and we see Chrissy and Ben. A budding romance with Cole and Jessica. And a bad break-up, Patrick and Ali and Ali doesn’t know how she can work with him, he’s crazy.
  8. The Voice (Season 13)

    Last night, the world’s biggest and best singing competition returned, along with multi-platinum selling super star Miley Cyrus and new coach award winning vocal icon Jennifer Hudson for our most inspiring season yet. Tonight, our coaches are more determined than ever to find and mentor the greatest voice in America. Premiere week continues right now! While our coaches head to their chairs let’s meet the first artist of the night. We meet Keisha Renee from Inglewood, Ca. Keisha says it’s an advantage the coaches can’t see her because sometimes you judge a book by its cover and she wants to break the mold of what people think country artist’s look like. She grew up in LA but she moved to Houston and it opened her eyes to other genres. She says people told her it was too farfetched for her to be a country artist. She weighed 350 pounds at one point, but after her pregnancy and being diagnosed with diabetes, she made lifestyle changes. Since she lost all the weight she gained the confidence to go after what she wants and her heart and direction is country. Keisha takes the stage and sings I Can’t Stop Loving You by Don Gibson. It immediate catches the attention of Blake and Miley. Blakes hand hovers over his button and finally pushes with Adam right behind and Jennifer a moment later. Miley continues to list and consider it and she finally pushes her button. Keisha got a 4-chair turn. Jennifer throws her notebook at her as Keisha finishes singing. Adam says he was hearing something Blake would do with Jennifer’s voice and with Miley’s style and nothing like him at all. But Los Angeles and Inglewood neighbors, thank God because he has nothing else. He thinks the key to becoming the best version of herself is to not fit in. Jennifer thinks it was genius to take a country song and put in her background. Jennifer loves that she is creating her own lane and that’s what she wants to help her do. And she threw her book at Keisha! Miley says they were all going to turn around no matter what but she was keeping her eye on Blake because this is their expertise. Blake interjects his expertise and Miley says she was born in Nashville. Miley thinks she’s got everything as a coach that Keisha wants to do. Blake says that song has been covered by a lot of people and if country is where she wants to be then she should go with Blake because he moved to Nashville with one goal in mind, to be a country singer. Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Keisha thinks about it and the crowd is yelling at her. Keisha says they all said marvelous things, but she picks…Blake. Keisha tells us she picked Blake because she’s new to country and she thinks he’s the best person to learn from. He’s the king of country! We’re back and Miley has brought her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus. As our coaches get settled, the artist’s eagerly away their auditions. Let’s see if Dylan Gerard can make his music dreams a reality. Dylan takes the stage and sings Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur. The coaches all listen intently. Adam finally hits his button with Jennifer immediately behind. Adam gets on his feet as he finishes and Dylan was a 2-chair turn. Adam says Dylan was so subtle in how he did everything and it was really refreshing. He has a cool vibe and he’s special. Jennifer says what made her turn around was she sees potential. For example, she’d change the key because it seemed slightly low for him and maybe take it up a half step. He sings part of the song in the slightly higher key and she runs up on stage to continue coaching him on how to hit the higher notes in the higher key. Adam says all things happen when they agree to be on your team and Jennifer says they deserve to see a demo of what we can do. Adam says going between those two things in his voice is what he’s worked on his entire career and it’s one of the hardest things for a male artist to do. Blake says Dylan, who do you pick as your coach. Dylan thanks Jennifer so much, but he had to pick Adam. He says he liked Jennifer going into coach mode but he’s been a fan of Maroon 5. Up next is Maharasyi and she’s from Los Angeles. Her family is from Indonesia and she spent a majority of her childhood there. Her aunt was a singer in Indonesia and that’s where she got her love of music from. She’s a wedding singer and now being on The Voice is her biggest opportunity. She’d probably pick Miley as her coach if she turned. Maharasyi takes the stage and sings Tell Me Something Good by Chaka Khan and Rufus. Jennifer is singing along in her chair. Adam is also singing. Jennifer is dancing and hits her button. Miley looks at Adam and then reaches to hit her button. Maharasyi is a 2-chair turn. Jennifer says that was a great song choice and she thinks she chose it because she has soul and a big voice like Chaka. Jennifer says she shied away from the big note and Maharasyi says she’s never tried it because it’s scared her a little. Jennifer says if you can think the note you can hit the note and she wants her to try the last note in full voice. Maharasyi tries it and hits it. Miley felts nerves were holding her back in her performance and she had butterflies that made her voice flutter all over the place. Miley wants her to believe in herself as much as Miley does and she wants to help her train vocally and build her confidence so her nerves don’t get in the way in future rounds. Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Maharasyi looks to her family and she says she picks…Jennifer. We’re going to meet our next artist, Marlo Wells from Fontana, Ca, but he was originally from Detroit, Mi. His father was a Motown legend, Carl Jones and he sang with a group the Love Tones. He sang for Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and Mary Wells. Music has always been in his blood but he spent 30 years in sales for a major insurance company. He’s 61-years old. If he makes a team, then he’ll be the oldest in the history of The Voice. He’d like to work with Jennifer. Marlo takes the stage and sings Love Me Now by John Legend. Jennifer is dancing a little in her chair and talking to Miley. She says he sounds almost country but gospel too. The judges are all looking at each other and Jennifer wants to hit her button but doesn’t. Adam says he got a lot of chatter back there between the judges. He says Jennifer really wanted to turn. Jennifer says she’s so ashamed she can’t even look at him. Miley tells him to please come back but make sure she’s on the show. The next artist is Red Marlow from Dickson, Tn. He says he’s as country as cornbread and as country as you can possibly get. He grew up playing bluegrass and bluegrass gospel. He got to go work immediately for song writers singing demos. If he turns a chair it will help let him know he’s good enough to do this. Red takes the stage with a guitar and sings Swingin by John Anderson. Miley and Blake are looking at each. Blake is bobbing his head and singing along. Blake is watching Miley and she says she’s listening. Blake finally hits and Miley follows. Red got a 2-chair turn. Adam says it’s fun to see someone more country than Blake. Adam says he would have turned but he’s not stupid. Red says he’d still give him a hug. Miley says Red may have it set he wants to go to Blake, but she’s a strong fighter and she came here because she wants to bring a new face to country music. She says growing up she sat with Waylon Jennings and Dolly Parton and she took notes. Blake asks if he’s originally from Tennessee and he says he moved up from Alabama. Red has met Blake but he doesn’t know if he remembers it. Blake says he’s excited for Red and he’d like to see him get the opportunity he deserves. Miley says he won’t get lost on her team and she knows he wants to prove himself and that’s what she wants to do. Blake says let’s not monkey around, let’s do what’s right. Adam says Red, who do you pick as your coach. Red says he really does appreciate everything Miley said but he does have to pick Blake. Next is Ashland Craft from Piedmont, SC. For the past two years she’s had a steady gig at a honky tonk. Her dad has been a mechanic his whole life and he’s always tried to buy things that help her reach her dreams and goals. He has helped her become a better musician. She says The Voice is her chance to reach her dream. She’s hoping and praying she has what it takes. Ashland takes the stage and sings You Are My Sunshine in the style of Chris Stapleton. Blake immediately says woah! Miley! He then hits his button. Adam and Miley both hit their buttons. Miley yells Blake this is it! He says he’s nervous. Jennifer is dancing and listening but doesn’t turn. Miley says she loves it! Miley says she’s been looking for her and Blake gives a yee-haw. Miley says it’s about to go down. Miley says she has those boots and Adam says so do I. Adam says whatever she says I do too. Miley covers that song on her tour and Adam says he does to. Miley says Blake is the King of Country but they need a queen and it could be her. She wants her and Ashland to be a power team of two females who aren’t afraid to be the punk rock Dollly Parton and she says Adam is from LA. Adam says full disclosure I am not country. He has been fighting this fight and failing for so many season but he picks himself up every time. He says a lot do go to Blake, but she’s such a powerful female country rock and roll singer, she’s going to transcend the necessity to go to Blake’s team. Adam says please know he’d be working double time to make sure he didn’t let her down. Blake says he doesn’t know why she’d experiment. He always dreamt his whole life of being a country singer on the radio. He recognizes the traditional sound she has and there hasn’t been a voice like hers since Gretchen Wilson. He says there’s a total open lane for her right now and that’s why he wants to be her coach. Adam says people will be more interested in him and her. Miley says for once she’s not the craziest decision. Jennifer says I don’t want to get in the middle of this craziness! It’s time for you to make your decision. Ashland says she didn’t know it would be this hard. Ashland picks…Miley! Ashland says she was deadest on Blake, but she looked at Miley and she’s had experience and country but also branched out and it seemed like the right fit for her.
  9. The Voice (Season 13)

    The Voice is back! Taking our coaches chairs for season 13 is Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levin, country artist, Blake Shelton, returning to the voice, Miley Cyrus, and making her debut, Jennifer Hudson. The season 13 blind auditions are here! Let’s meet the first artist of the season. Chris Weaver is the first artist who has experience performing on stage, under a different name. He is a worship leader during the day and a drag queen at night. His drag character is Niedra Belle. He wants to take this opportunity and show the world who he is. He has sung in front of Jennifer Hudson before and it would be mind-blowing if she turned for him, but he would love to work with Adam. Chris takes the stage and sings Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding. Adam is the first to hit his button very early and Jennifer quickly follows. As he gets to the chorus Miley hits her button and Blake follows. We have our first four chair turn of the season. Jennifer asks for Miley’s shoe and Adam takes his shoe off and throws it at Chris. Chris says Jennifer was about to do what she did 2 years ago when he sang for her. Adam takes his jacket off. Jennifer says where she comes from throwing a shoe is a compliment. Adam is standing on his chair and Adam asks his name. Miley says she would love nothing more to have him on her team and she’s so thirsty to win and she wants to do it with him. Jennifer says because she is extremely passionate about him she wants to know what he wants. He says he grew up in church but he’s ready to expand into something different. Jennifer says she grew up in church too and she also visited a drag queen show in Chicago. Blake asks how he’s doing. He says he’s won the show with country artist, pop artists, R&B, but he’s never won the show with a drag queen. Blake says it was his birthday and Chris didn’t give him anything and he could make it the greatest birthday of his life if he picked him as his coach. Adam says he constantly battles for his team. He says he’s a phenomenal singer, but he’s more special than that. Miley says she learned on season 11 that song choice is important and she thinks she can help him pick the right songs. Jennifer wants to say one more thing. She says he has a voice, but the bigger part of the equation is having a plan and she has that because she’s walked that path. Adam says it’s time for Chris to pick his coach. Chris says because they are in such a similar place, he has to go with…JHud! Adam says Chris broke his heart. Coming up, Season 13 is just getting started and with Jennifer Hudson in the coach’s chair, anything is possible. While our coaches get ready, let’s meet the next artist. Next is Mitchell Lee and he’s a wood worker in Nashville, Tn. He builds custom furniture. His original plan was to go to military college and then go to dental school. His mom said she’d support him but she said she couldn’t see him as a dentist. After his mom unexpectedly passed away when he was 22, he decided to give music a shot because his mom always saw him as an artist. He can’t believe he’s about to sing for 4 megastars. Mitchell takes the stage and he sings Hold My Hand by Hootie and the Blowfish. Jennifer is dancing in her seat. Blake sits forward and looks at the other judges and Adam hits his button, which prompts Blake to hit his and then Jennifer follows with hers. He gets a three chair turn and Adam is on his feet. Adam says Hootie! He says he traversed a lot of ground. He’s done simple pop rock and roll and then moved into country. Blake throws in his name is Darius. Adam says Blake is nervous Adam is going to steal Mitchell. Adam says when Mitchell hit the big notes it was extremely dynamic and he thinks he can go far on the show. Miley asks if he has always been a singer and he says no he was going to be a dentist. Jennifer says she’d be uncomfortable in his dentist chair with him looking like that. Blake says Mitchell sounds country to him and Mitchell says he is southern, but he likes rock. Blake says he’d love to have a chance to work with him on his team. Jennifer says he was so in it and his energy helped guide the notes and he was so comfortable. Miley says it’s the magic time and you have to pick a coach. Mitchell takes his time but he picks…Blake. Mitchell is walking back stage and says that was a rush. Adam congratulates Blake on his acquisition and he tells us he and Blake are going to be nice to each other this season, but he doesn’t think it will last. #VOICE The next artist has been through a lot to get here. Janice Freeman is next and she is from California. When her daughter was 4 her father passed away of cancer and in 2012 she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She says she has to fight for her daughter and today she is cancer free. She met her husband while she was fighting cancer and they just celebrated their 2-year anniversary. She fought her whole life for this moment and she cannot and will not let it go. Janice takes the stage and sings Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Jennifer looks like she wants to hit her button, but she pulls back. Adam says woah and looks like he might want to hit but he waits. Jennifer hits her button with Miley right behind and Janice hits the chorus for the second time. She got a 2-chair turn. Adam asks what her name is and she says Janice. Adam says she turned in that song into something swampy. He says if she needs help on who to choose to let him know. Miley says she liked that better than the original and she likes women who come out and do what she just did with no fear. Miley thinks she’s the best coach for Janice. Jennifer says she doesn’t have any fear either. Jennifer thinks the two of them together could knock down some serious walls. Blake asks if she’s sung all her life and Janice says yes and tells a little of her back story. Miley and Jennifer go up to give her a hug. Miley says no matter what maybe she will be the reason why someone just like her will walk through the next season. Adam asks who Janice picks as her coach. She says it’s hard, but she picks…Miley. Jennifer says it’s the first time her and Miley went head to head and Miley won that one, but she’ll keep her eye on her. Put yourself in the judges chairs and get The Voice app and build your own team! Next to the stage is Xaris from Florida and she loves folk music. Her mother says she’s an old soul and she loves music that tells a story. As she got more into music she started picking up more instruments. She plays the guitar, the harmonica, the ukulele, the banjo, the pennywhistle, and the mandolin. She works at a frozen yogurt shop and she uses her income to buy things she loves. She wants to do music full time. She says the judges may be shocked to see a 17-year old girl singing a song from 50 years ago. Xaris hits the stage and sings Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right by Bob Dylan. The judges all sit and look deep in thought. Her family is backstage saying come on. No judges hit their button. Adam says she sounds years beyond her age. Blake says she sounds awesome. Miley says she’s so super cool and super unique. While tonight’s nervous singers wait to perform, the next artist hopes her surprising voice gets the coach’s attention. Shi’ann Jones sings Drown in My Own Tears by Ray Charles. Jennifer Hudson wastes no time in turning around and threatens the other judges not to turn around. While Jennifer is focusing on Adam and Miley, Blake hits his button and turns and Jennifer throws her notebook at him. Blake was the only other judge brave enough to turn around and she ends up a 2-chair turn. Adam asks how old she is and Shi’ann says she is 15. Miley wished she pushed and Adam says he wanted to push for her because Jennifer threatened to kill him. Miley says she was threatening people. Jennifer says as soon as Shi’ann opened her mouth she hit her button and then she started threatening. Jennifer says her voice is undeniable and Blake says can he talk now and Jennifer says I told you not to turn around! Jennifer says she is so excited about her. Adam says Blake it’s time for you to talk. Blake asks where she’s from and she says Bowling Green, Kentucky. Blake says her and Jennifer are similar as artists, but that doesn’t have anything to do with being a coach on the show. He says it’s about making sure she has the best possible performance every time she’s on the stage and he may not be the obvious choice, but he's passionate about being her coach. Adam asks who she picks as her coach. Shi’ann takes a moment and picks…Jennifer. Jennifer says she is so excited to work with her. It’s night one of the blind auditions. The next artist is Dave Crosby and he says you may recognize him from YouTube where he sings song with his 4-year old daughter, Claire. He says the video went super viral and got invitations to perform on TV shows. She was on Little Big Shots and The Ellen Show. He didn’t know if he could provide for his daughter by being a musician so he changed directions. He says Claire loves The Voice and she gets excited on chair turns. Dave takes the stage and playing guitar sings I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie. Adam hits his button very quickly. Blake hits as he sings the last line and Miley decides to hit her button too. Adam says he’s so pissed off at the other judges for turning around. He let a wow slip out and he was trying to show no emotion. He says he turned impulsively and the purity and beauty of his voice is irreplaceable. Jennifer asks what inspired him to sing and he talks about how his daughter brought music back to his life. Adam just realizes he’s the guy from YouTube with his daughter and they want her to come out so they can sing the song. She sings You Got a Friend In Me for the judges while her dad plays guitar. Blake says he wants Dave on his team, but he’d really like to have Claire. Adam says when he had his baby girl it was one of the most amazing moments in his life and he seen the video of Dave singing with his daughter and he lost it. Miley says she started singing when she was 4-years old and she can relate. Blake says that’s incredible, but his voice and how it made at least three of them feel. He says it sounds like his voice has its own echo chamber. Adam says Dave is the guy we have to focus on and he would be honored to have him on his team. Jennifer says who will your coach be? Dave looks to his wife and she shrugs. He’s going to pick…Adam. Adam says he had a rough start but he finally prevailed. Adam goes back to greet Dave’s family and picks up Claire. While Dave celebrates making a team, the next artist is getting ready to return to The Voice stage after years of waiting. Odiseas auditioned season 3 when he was 15. He says he used his rejection as fuel to the fire and got back on the horse. He feels like this is happening at the perfect time. He says it’s been a lot of finding himself as an artist and a lot of growing up. He’s been preparing for this moment for a long time. Odiseas takes the stage and sings Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag by James Brown. The judges are all listening and bobbing their heads. Blake reaches for his button but hesitates and never pushes. Blake immediately looks down like he regrets it. Jennifer Hudson says the song was too over characterized and they couldn’t focus on his voice. Miley says there is such a thing as a total package and she is in love with him and wants to turn the chairs around. Blake says when someone is so far out of his music lane he relies on the other three. Adam tells him not to wait to come back, third times a charm. Miley thinks they made a mistake. The next artist is Esera Tuaolo from the island of Hawaii, but he currently lives in Minneapolis, Mn. He got drafted to the Green Bay Packers, and also played for the Vikings, the Falcons, the Jaguars, and went to the superbowl with Atlanta and finished up with Carolina. He put singing on the back burner because of football but he got a chance to follow his dream and he’s ready to win this. He says when he came out to his family that he was gay it was like a huge mountain crumbled. He fell into depression for a time, and now to pursue a singing career, he thought it was lost. He says this is an opportunity to reach for the stars and be true to himself. Esera takes the stage and he sings Rise Up by Andra Day. The judges are all listening intently. Jennifer hits her button after he hits the chorus. Blake continues listening intently and eventually hits his button as well. Esera is a 2-chair turn. Blake says he hit his button too and he was singing to Jennifer. Adam says he could feel his presence. Adam says he’s a total moron. Jennifer says that is one of her favorite songs and that’s probably what caught her attention. Blake says when he turned around Esera was so focused on Jennifer. Blake says he’s a country singer, but he’s worked with a lot of different artists. He says he’s a football geek and he’d probably drive him nuts. Adam says it’s time for Esera to pick a coach. His children backstage think he’s going to pick Blake. Esera takes a minute and he picks…Blake. Blake says he was starting to fan out and he’s probably going to get on his nerves because he’s a huge football fan. With mounting pressure to make a team, the artist’s count on inspiration and support from friends and family. But the next artist has made a career out of inspiring others. Brandon Showell is a 7th grade English teacher. He says his students know he studied music in college, but they don’t know he gigs on weekends. He says a couple of days after the blind auditions he’s going to get married to his fiancé. He got excited when he heard Jennifer Hudson was going to be on the show because he’s a fan of hers. Brandon takes the stage and sings There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back by Shawn Mendes. Adam hits his button as he hits the chorus. The other judges are bobbing their heads and Jennifer and Miley both decide to hit at the same time. Brandon got a 3-chair turn and Adam gets on his feet with Jennifer and Miley right behind. Jennifer asks if he sings for a living. Brandon says he started on cruise ships and Jennifer says she started on cruise ships too. Jennifer says from that experience she can help him go where he wants to go. He then tells them he’s a full time English teacher. Adam says he turned his chair much, much noticeably faster than the other two. He says when he heard him singing nothing else mattered. Adam says he’s amazing. Miley says she did a TV show like that where she went to school by day and performed at night and she doesn’t think he should lead two separate lives. Blake asks Brandon who he picks as his coach. Brandon thinks about it and decides to pick…Adam. Brandon thinks Adam will help him the most with stage presence and confidence. Next we have Lucas Holliday from Lansing, Michigan. He’s a cashier at a local store. He says he doesn’t look like how he sounds. He says Maxwell is one of his influences. He was contacted by Maxwell and he got an invitation to come sing with him and he says it was an experience like no other. Lucas takes the stage and sings This Woman’s Work by Maxwell. The judges are listening closely and they keep looking at each other. Jennifer puts her hand on the button, but then pulls it back. Jennifer finally gives in and hits her button and turns. When she turns her jaw drops. Lucas is a 1-chair turn and is on Jennifer Hudson’s team. When the chairs turn Blake asks where the guy was who was singing. Miley thinks something that’s going to be really cool for Jennifer because they can go anywhere and she’s the best coach for him. Jennifer says we have to sing something together after that. Carson says this will be one of the best pairings they’ve ever had on the show. Adam says unbelievable. While our coaches head to their chairs, let’s meet the next artist. Brooke Simpson and she is 100% native America. Her tribe is about 4000 people and they still have a pow wow every year. Her parents are full time evangelists and travel and preach and sing at churches. She says The Voice is an opportunity for her to possibly do her music for a living. She says she’s 26 and nothing has happened for her and maybe it’s time to figure out plan b. She thinks when her tribe sees her representing them well it will make them proud. Brooke takes the stage and sings Stone Cold by Demi Lovato. Blake is the first to hit his button with Miley right behind. Jennifer eventually hits her button and Adam is the last to turn. Jennifer gets to her feet and throws her notebook on the floor in front of Brooke and Adam and Miley get to their feet. Brooke got a 4-chair turn. Adam runs up to give her a hug. Miley says Brooke knows she’s good because she’s speechless. Miley says she is awesome. Jennifer asks what does she listen to and what’s on her playlist. Brooke says she listens to all of them, but her main inspiration is her mom. Miley knows Jennifer’s voice is amazing and they have a similar range, but she’s a vested coach and she wants to win the season with her. Jennifer says she threw her notebook at her and that’s a compliment where she comes from. Adam says most people that try to do what she did shouldn’t do it. But Brooke pulled it off and it’s really hard to find and when they see it and Miley interrupts. Miley goes up and grabs her hand and puts it to her heart and says her heart is beating hard. Adam says he wants to help lead her down the right path and get that trophy. Jennifer says with a voice like her it is the trophy. She owned the song and she meant the song. Jennifer says she thought she knew singing until she came out and just did that. Blake says every now and then a singer comes across the stage that simply needs an opportunity and he thinks that’s where she’s at with her talent, artistry, and this is about creating the right moments and opportunities. Adam says he’s really good at picking the right songs and creating the right moments. Miley says she’s very vested in her artists and she wants to get to know her and help her reach her full potential. Adam says Brooke I think it’s time. Brooke looks to her family and her mom is saying it’s a tough choice. Brooke says she picks…Miley. Miley’s mom comes in for a hug and greets Brooke’s family. Brooke says when Miley came up and took her hand and put it on Miley’s heart and she felt it pounding, she knew she had to pick her.
  10. America's Got Talent (Season 12)

    This is it! The America’s Got Talent finale! One act is about to win one million dollars! Tyra tells us last night they had the biggest vote in AGT history. Tyra says Simon, this is going to be huge for the winner, life changing. Simon says last night was really incredible and any one of them could win tonight. He wishes them all the best of luck. We’re about to hear the judges takes on Howie. Heidi says Howie is always telling jokes. Simon says some days he loves the jokes and some days he doesn’t want to hear another joke and he knows that. Mel B says she tells Howie to test the jokes out on them because sometimes they aren’t funny. Howie says he was told when he went in to comedy he was told if he could make one person laugh, then he was successful. Howie says sometimes he just finds that person he makes laugh is him. Tonight, we will be seeing all of the top 10 doing what they love with some of our biggest favorite stars in the world. Up first is Kechi and Angelica Hale. They sing Stronger by Kelly Clarkson. Kelly Clarkson joins them as they hit the chorus. After they perform together, Kelly Clarkson sings Love So Soft, one of her new releases. Tyra asks Kelly what she would tell Kechi and Angelica because she’s been in a similar situation. Kelly says it doesn’t matter, they made it this far. She says it’s about getting on television and getting people to see them. Her new album Meaning of Life will be available October 27. We’re about to get the judges thoughts on Mel B. Howie says it’s weird their show is live and Mel B is on delay and Simon says yeah, a day’s delay. Mel B says she gets confused sometimes and has to get things explained to her. Heidi says Howie has to explain most jokes to Mel B. Howie says she seems happy. Simon says they might be happier if they were more like her and didn’t know what was going on half the time. Howie agrees. The next two acts have stunned us with their creativity and their innovation every week. With a special performance for the finale, here are Light Balance and Diavolo. We see Diavolo first performing to A Sign of the Time by Harry Styles with their half-moon prop and then Light Balance takes the stage and performs to 24K Magic by Bruno Mars. Derrick Hough was part of the Light Balance act in costume and pulls it off after they finish their performance. Derek says it’s very hot in that costume, those guys are amazing. Marlee Matlin is a guest to introduce the next act, Mandy Harvey. Marlee tells us Mandy is going to perform with a superstar, Shania Twain. Mandy begins to sing You’re Still the One and Shania joins her at the chorus. After they finish, Shania sings Life’s About to Get Good. Shania’s new album is out September 29th. We are now just minutes away from the first results. Time to see what the judges find annoying about Heidi. Heidi says she’s someone who points things out, like if you have spinach in your teeth. Mel B says she does it right before they go live. Mel B says she’s not very gentle with it. Simon thinks Heidi is obsessed with him. Heidi says there is never a moment when she isn’t a judge. Heidi asks Mel B if she sees the girls screaming for Simon and Mel B says she doesn’t get it. Mel B thinks Simon has a thing for the older ladies and Heidi says any ladies. Heidi says and he feeds them and Mel B says he throws oranges and Heidi says they are tangerines. Mel B says he’s a soft teddy bear. Howie says Simon is not only entertaining America, he’s feeding America. This next act had everyone talking, Darci Lynne. She sees Jeff Dunham and Walter and they chat for a minute. Tyra tells us tomorrow Jeff is getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Darci Lynne is on stage with Petunia and joining them is Terry Fator with Winston the Impersonating Turtle. They then sing back and forth Anything You can Do. Darci Lynne makes a small mistake at the beginning of the song but recovers very well. Next, Preacher and Howie were sent out to the club to talk comedy. Howie says every time he’s there it takes him back to 1978 and Hollywood was the mecca of comedy. Howie says anybody who is anybody was seen in the clubs including Richard Pryor and Robin Williams. He says it was so exciting and electric he still gets the same feeling when he goes into a comedy club. Howie says Preacher Lawson is a star, he’s lovable and energetic and funny. Preacher sits and talks to Howie and Kevin Nealon. Howie tells Preacher he’s one of the best he’s seen in a decade. Our next special finale performance is Evie Claire and Chase Goehring and they will be joined by James Arthur. Evie starts with an original song and James joins her on stage to sing the last part with her. James then sings Say You Won’t Let Go.

Christmas is called to DR again and she says she is going. Paul says his biggest fan base is in New York and he still hasn’t done anything there yet. Josh says it’s crazy that they might get recognized and Paul says airports are the craziest. Josh says it’s very humbling.

They start talking about Bobby Moynihan and his visit. 9:25 PM BBT Christmas is out of DR and calls everyone to the LR. They are wondering what’s going on and Josh is saying oh no! Christmas reads from a card Dear Houseguests! Smile at your own Big Brother After Dark and Paul and Josh cheer. Orwell’s night owls have been watching you all season long and have some questions for you. Take turns picking a card and let’s play a game of Truth or Truth! Your friends at POP! Josh picks a card and Christmas says if the card is for him he has to answer out loud and if it’s for someone else they have to answer. Josh reads is it easier to gain weight, lose weight, or maintain your weight living in the Big Brother house? He’s laughing and says he would pick that questions. He says hands down gain weight and Paul says. They talk about stress eating and eating when you’re stressed, happy, sad. Christmas says and it’s all junk food, she doesn’t buy the stuff they are given in the house at home. 9:30 PM BBT Paul pulls a card and reads Paul, who is the first person you are going to call when you’re out of the house? Paul hesitates and says we’ll he’s going to see his family at finale, so probably his grandparents. He’ll probably call his grandparents right away just to hear his grandmother’s little voice. He says actually, let me re-answer that. The ghostbusters. Christmas picks a card next and reads Everyone, what food do you miss eating from home? Josh says Chipotle! Chipotle and his mom’s cooking. Christmas likes doing her own BBQ in the BY. She talks about salmon on the grill and poppers and grilled corn. She misses eating breakfast at her table watching the sun come up. Paul says In and Out, all day every day, California Vibes, animal style burger, animal style fries, neopolitan shake. His mom’s cooking. Josh draws a card and reads Josh, do you play any instruments, or were pots and pans your first? He starts laughing and says he’s never played instruments even though he’d love to learn to play the guitar. Hopefully Paul teaches him. Christmas thinks he would not be ok if Paul tried to teach him guitar. Paul draws a card and says Christmas! What’s one of your most meaningful tattoos and why? Christmas says she likes all of her tattoos. She says each one has it’s own meaning and own story and each one is a representation of something she loves.

They have this big spread and eat all day long and they open one present on Christmas Eve. Josh’s turn to draw and he reads Josh, which was harder eating slop or sleeping on a bed of spikes. Josh says slop! Slop sucks. He says luckily he had a guy who played last year to help with the slop and make it good with all the sauces and Ramses made good slop. Josh says except when Mark threw a fit and took his pillows, he slept pretty well on the spike beds. Josh says the hype is real, slop sucks. 9:40 PM BBT Paul draws a card and reads everyone, besides your family, what do you miss most in the outside world?

Josh says just being able to drink a beer. Christmas draws everyone, which former HG are you excited to meet? Paul says he’s met a lot of them but he wants to meet Dan G, the funeral director and he wants to see Dr. Will again.

Paul says ED is hyped they are giving him the shoutout. Josh is next and reads Josh, are meatballs your favorite food? He says yes! I love meatballs! Paul says he played himself.

Paul says his guitar and Josh says his laptop so he can see how his business is doing. Christmas says Fran and Paul says that’s a person not an item, so she says her bed or her shower. Josh reads everyone what’s your favorite comp this year? Paul says either strangest things, the terminal comp, or the weather comp. Josh says for him it’s terminal and OTEV was fun. Christmas lists the one she didn’t get to play in and she says the lemon truck because it’s the first one she got to be physical in. Christmas says it definitely wasn’t the last one they played.

Christmas says she’s felt free. Paul says you’re a slave to your phone and you learn to appreciate more without it. Josh says drop the phone when you’re with family and friends. 10:02 PM BBT Josh reads Paul, how many of last years HG do you still hang out with. Paul says elfit Vic!

Christmas tells Paul good job and he tells her the same. Josh says they were out there a long time. Christmas was able to compete. 12:30 AM BBT More talk about the comp but generalities.

Paul talks about last year’s endurance comp. 12:35 AM BBT Paul still talking about last year’s endurance comp, he says it was 3 comps in one. He says this year’s comp was just weird. Paul says he looked over and thought Christmas was wiping off sweat and he thought he lost. Christmas says no, she went down. Paul gets called to the DR. 12:40 AM BBT Christmas asks what the next comp would be and Josh says mental/physical and the last one is luck. Josh asks Christmas what she’s thinking and she says she wishes she didn’t have the boot on her foot. Josh can’t wait to see the reaction of people when they see Christmas competed. Josh says they were on 30 minutes longer than he was. Christmas says when those things farted pixie dust the guys just stood there. Josh says as soon as he gets out he’s doing crossfit. Josh hopes his mom comes to finale. FotH. Josh says he feels good whatever happens. 12:45 AM BBT Christmas says she didn’t get to compete in OTEV, the temple of doom, zingbot and she thinks she could have done well in them if it wasn’t for her foot. Josh says she wouldn’t have half-assed any of those comps. Josh says Christmas was underestimated in the game. People didn’t know how smart she was.

Christmas and Josh are just looking at the memory wall. Christmas says unicorn tears? Paul says they wanted tears and we get FotH.

  18. 2:00 PM BBT Alex finishes her rosary and heads to the DR. Paul tells Christmas and Josh they can’t act any different around her. Josh says he will be straight forward with her. Christmas says he was straight forward with her and he’s been doing great, he doesn’t have to change his position. Christmas says Josh said what he needed to say when he nominated her. Paul says that was tough and Christmas says it was long. Paul says Alex isn’t his enemy and it sucks it went this way. Paul says he told her getting Kevin out next week is easier than she would be. Josh says he knows what he’s going to say her. Christmas says Jason went against what they said and that’s why thinks went the way they did. Paul says Alex implied she threw the veto. 2:05 PM BBT Christmas and Josh says no way she threw it. Paul says Alex walked because she hoped Paul would win. Christmas said no way and besides Paul has played that competition before. Josh says he’ll never do this again. Paul says imagine doing it alone with no vet helping you and then losing. And then doing it again. Josh says you’re crazy. Paul says that was tough, but not as tough as it would be to send one of them home. Paul says he doesn’t think she will buck and kick and go crazy. He made it heartfelt and honest. Kevin is walking the yard and it’s quiet all around the house.
  19. 1:30 PM BBT Alex says she was walking in the veto and she’s not mad at him, she’s mad at herself. Paul says the circumstances suck and he’s trying not to cry in front of her and he knows she’s not a fan of that. He says it hurts him and he would be lying if he said it didn’t hurt him. He says she’s his friend in there and he would vote for her to win and this is where the emotions of BB come into game play decisions. Paul says if he lets his emotions take over he secures his loss in the game. Alex says they don’t have to keep going over it and this secures her not winning at all. Alex says if the situation was flipped she still would have taken him even if she thought she was getting second. She says she was worried about jury too, but she wouldn’t have taken Josh over Paul even though it would have been a slam dunk. Paul says she would have won over everyone and he’s not doubting she would take him, but being the only vet he knows is a mark against him. He says no one else knows how hard it was being the only vet in the game. Alex says she gets it but she doesn’t want to keep talking about it but this secures a loss for it. She totally gets it, she knows it kills him. Paul says those people don’t give a F that he’s eating himself alive with this decision. Paul says if this was his first time play he would happily make this mistake. But it’s his second time playing and if he makes the same mistake twice…Alex says she doesn’t want to talk about. Paul says he will talk with them and see if he can get in their heads and talk them into keeping her. Alex says they both already expressed Kevin is a better option because they can beat him. Paul says but he can still try. Alex says it’s a lost cause at this point. 1:35 PM BBT Paul says he can still try but he knows if he goes against them he loses those three votes. He says it is his pivotal decision that leads to that point and they aren’t voting for him and he knows that. Paul says he’s not afraid of them and he’s sure they could get to F2 but he knows he would lose. Alex says she just wished Paul had listened to her earlier about Christmas and Kevin. She said Christmas was getting cocky with her foot and Kevin was sliding by. Alex says she set Jason up to go home. Paul says she can’t blame herself for that. Paul says if it’s any consolation he’s almost positive Alex will get AFP because she was the only other “player”. Alex says that doesn’t make it better so let’s not talk about it. Paul says he wasn’t going to not talk to her and she says she appreciates it. Paul says he wanted to be honest with her and if that dictates her hating him, then so be it. He doesn’t want her to feel like he’s selfishly Fing her over. Alex says honestly, it doesn’t feel like that. 100%. Alex says she had times she thought Jason would clean sweep her or Paul but she didn’t care. Paul says he’s playing this game the second time and it’s hard to get this far and not want to win. Alex says do you think it was easy for me to throw comps to you? She explained to Jason you don’t have to win every comp to win BB and she was ok with it. She doesn’t want to make him feel worse, and she doesn’t want to keep talking about it. Paul says he’s eating himself up but he wants to talk it out because her feelings are just as valid as his. Paul says you said I’m securing losing, but if I save you, then I’m securing my own loss. 1:40 PM BBT Alex says she cares about the money, she wants to take care of her baby. Paul says this game has taken a physical and emotional toll on me. Alex says it just sucks, I worked really hard. Paul says everyone knows how hard you worked which is what makes it even harder for him. Paul says I wish you hadn’t done crap all season. Alex says we don’t have to keep talking about it because it only makes it worse. Alex says Christmas is not going to lay down for this because she wants it now. Paul says he's going to try and talk them in to keeping him, he just can’t save her because he would lose those votes. But maybe he can talk them into keeping her. He says there is nothing he wants more than to be in F2 with her. Christmas comes in from outside and goes upstairs. Paul tells Alex he worked super hard last year and he fell short. He says his anxiety attacks and panic attacks and it would crush his soul if he made the same mistake as last year and lose by one vote. 1:45 PM BBT Christmas and Josh are talking about days again. She’s running down the HOH wins. Paul tells Alex he’s always doubted himself his whole life and his capabilities and with this decision there might be a shred of confidence he can pull it off. He says it’s super hard to say to her and he’s trying to be as open and honest with his feelings as he can. Alex says she understands and she keeps saying they don’t have to talk about it because it just makes him feel worse. Paul asks if they think they’ll do anything today? Alex doesn’t think so and then mentions maybe a special eviction on Tuesday and then another on Thursday. Paul says final 3 is at least 5 or 6 days. Alex says they probably won’t have a show today because of football all day and they won’t have a special show on Monday because of football. Alex says she wishes they would have just voted out Kevin and then she wouldn’t feel so bad going before him. Paul says we all wanted Raven out. Paul says at that point he was overtrumped with the vote. Paul says they were set on getting Raven out over Kevin. Alex says Christmas is obviously playing the game now because she’s trying to sneak by and get to the end. Paul asks Alex if she thinks he can do it and she says he can. Alex says she’ll vote for Paul and Jason will. Paul says Jason hates me right now. Alex says she’ll talk to him that Jason will think it was Paul’s plan all along and Alex is stupid but she will tell him to vote for Paul. Paul says he hasn’t done jury damage control all season, but neither have they. Paul says he’s going to talk to Josh and Christmas and see what he can do. He apologizes to her because he let her down. 1:50 PM BBT Alex says you got my vote, you probably just won’t see me right after. Paul just wants her to know he genuinely thinks she’s one of the coolest people he’s ever met. She says she’s going to the WC. Christmas and Josh have moved on to talking about evictions. Paul is pacing back and forth between rooms and he is upset and sniffling. He is crying. Kevin comes inside and holds the door open for Alex and she goes outside and says thank you. Kevin asks Paul if he’s alright and he says he’s fine and Kevin asks if you are sure. Paul heads into the HOH room and Christmas gives him a hug. Alex is outside on the couch saying Hail Mary’s with her rosary. Paul is crying and Josh comes up to hug him as well. 1:55 PM BBT Paul tells them he told Alex he would talk to them about keeping her. He then goes over everything he told her. Paul says Alex called him selfish and she doesn’t know he’s protecting them. Josh asked if Alex was ok and Paul says she said thanks for being honest. Paul tells them they need to give her a straight no and not give her hope because it will hurt her even more. Alex is called to the DR and she asks for 5 minutes so she can finish her rosary.
  20. 10:00 PM BBT Christmas, Josh, and Paul are in the lounge studying days. 10:05 PM BBT Christmas, Josh, and Paul are still studying days. Josh still wants to call out Kevin. Christmas says to do it before the next HOH so he’s distracted. 10:10 PM BBT Josh is still upset about being a meatball. Paul says what did you think they were going to name you? Josh says he thought he’d be throwing meatballs. Christmas liked her comic so much. Josh asks Paul if the jury last year hated him and Nicole as much as they are hated this year. Paul says he was hated last year. Paul says he was motormouth last year, this year he’s potty mouth. Christmas says it might be because they talked crap and Paul says but why call me that? Josh says fool! What are you complaining about? Paul says his mom is going to kill him and Josh says his mom is going to kill him. Christmas mentions Big Meech as the baby on last year’s comic. Josh says he’s rampaging through a city he says he’s probably spazzing on all the episodes. Paul says why potty mouth? He says he hates it he wishes they’d have made him a snake. 10:15 PM BBT Christmas wants a massage after they are done. Josh says he needs to decompress after this. Christmas says a real moment, she doesn’t care what happens after F3, but they swept the F out of the house. Josh says yes they did. Christmas says they should put this in their playbook. Paul’s comic said the toxic toilet turned motor mouth into potty mouth. Josh says he doesn’t get the toilet thing. Paul thought they were saying he had bad breath or something. Josh says Mark and Jason were brutal sometimes and Elena sometimes. Josh says he wouldn’t get close enough to Raven. Josh says he felt Alex was a super hero one but all the rest were villains. Paul says he for sure was a villain. Paul says Jessica and Cody’s weren’t that bad. Christmas asks if the comics are accurate to their character in the show and Paul says pretty accurate. 10:20 PM BBT Paul says Jessica’s said Hex appeal and she was holding a book. Christmas thinks the show had her portrayed as a good girl until she took Cody’s chance away to save his girlfriend. Christmas wishes Jillian could have played longer, but she was on the block with her. Paul says they were probably portrayed as the aggressive ones all season. Paul says he probably made a lot of people cry in the DR, then he says Dominique for sure. Josh says when Paul came in to confront Dominique he was sleeping but immediately rose up and wanted to know what was going on. 10:25 PM BBT Paul says he likes Dominique but he doesn’t think she will want to be friends. Christmas thinks Dominique’s personality will keep her from talking to them because she’ll think she’s better than all of them. Josh liked Elena’s comic and he says Elena will probably like it. Christmas says she wants to go back and watch clips of Elena throwing a temper tantrum. They talk about Josh taking the apple night one.
  21. 9:30 PM BBT Paul, Christmas, and Josh are in the lounge room still talking things out. Kevin is in the green bedroom by himself. Alex is in the HOH shower. Paul again goes over the plan for talking to Alex. 9:35 PM BBT Paul finishes going over his plan. Josh wants to know when he can question Kevin about this veto. Christmas and Paul say after the eviction. 9:40 PM BBT Paul is asking again if everyone is comfortable with the plan. Josh says yes. Christmas agrees. Christmas says she should have taken this HOH and it could have been a split vote and she wouldn’t have minded taking Alex out. Josh is in the SR thinking and he whispers Christmas is such a fool twice. Christmas tells Paul she is sick of Alex’s arrogance. Paul tells Christmas he doesn’t think anyone will vote for him in jury. He says he doesn’t know how he can win, he doesn’t think he can win. He says he’s just trying to get as far as he can. Josh whispers again Christmas is such a fool. Josh comes out and Kevin asks if he’s tired and Josh says yes. Kevin asks if he’s going to bed early and Josh says yeah. Josh then says he’s going to lay down. Josh goes to the HOH room and Alex is out of the shower. Alex says she just got called to the DR. Christmas asks Paul if he didn’t think he could potentially win why didn’t he play a different game. Paul says he just wanted to go as far as he could, but now that he’s this far it’s hard not to think about it. 9:45 PM BBT Paul says he’s going to try and go as far as he can. Paul starts going over jury votes and Christmas says yeah, but they all respected you in some way. Christmas says collectively they all respected your game even though you blew up on them. Christmas says they just see her as a lump on a log in the corner. Josh is in his bed in the HOH and he says for him to have Paul and Christmas’s back the whole game and to stand by them and never cross them and Paul is literally putting all the blood on him and Christmas. Josh says he has no blood or anything and to put it on someone who’s had your back in order to secure your game and not give a chance…Josh says he’s been honest, loyal, straightforward. He says yeah he’s told white lies but for him to orchestrate all this and put all the blood on him so he can secure his jury votes and Christmas is so naïve she is eating everything he says. Josh says they don’t even let me speak, he can’t even get a word and now he can’t take a shot. He says now he has to go to F3 with him. He says Paul thinks he will go to F2 with his hands clean but he might just blow up the house. Josh says he’s earned his spot there, he’s protected Paul and Christmas and had their back and now what does he do? Josh says they think he’s stupid? Josh says they think he’s stupid like he doesn’t Fing know that Paul told Kevin to throw that Fing comp so it Fing looks like he is in with Fing Christmas? Josh says if he doesn’t make it to 3 and then 2 he doesn’t give a flying F at this point because he has not turned on anyone and he’s forcing him to turn on him. Paul is forcing Josh to take him out and take a shot at him. Josh says little does Paul know Josh knows they have a F3 and he’s sure he’s spreading that crap like wildfire in jury. 9:50 PM BBT Josh says he’s played a clean game and now he has someone he trusts, someone he looked out for, an alliance and now they are Fing up his game. Josh says if he wins he’s in a house full of Fing snakes. Josh is not going to throw crap on an ally to ensure he wins, he would have been happy for the best to win. He wouldn’t have crapped on someone to win. Josh says Christmas is worried about a rogue vote but she’s not pissed about Paul crapping on them to get to F2 and win the game. Josh says he is playing the F out of Christmas. Josh says he stood by this kid the whole game and for him not to be the one to taint his game, but for an ally to do it and he called people out and had enemies to protect those two? 9:55 PM BBT He says he’s not going to change, he’s going to be loyal, but if he makes that scale he’s taking Paul out. Josh says he’s going to F3 but they better beat him. And in his speech you better believe Josh is exposing the three of them. Josh says everyone is going to know when he’s in F2 he played a loyal game, stood by him and never turned on him and people never gave that in return. Josh says either the F’ing jury will respect his game play or F the jury too because he doesn’t give three F’s at this point. Josh says he didn’t ruin his game, thank his allies for that. Josh goes back downstairs. Christmas and Paul have been going over days. Josh comes in and Paul asks where Alex and Kevin are and Josh says DR and his corner. Paul asks Josh if he remembers anything from the Inked and Tatted comp. He wants to know what number was on Jillian’s cover. Josh says he’s screwed on that because he hasn’t studied days. They all start going over days.
  22. 9:00 PM BBT Paul says Josh was a giant meatball with pots and pans. Alex starts a story with this one time in college. It’s about a partner who was color blind. Paul goes downstairs and talks to Kevin and he tells Kevin he has to tell Alex he’s not using POV. Paul says she’s going to hate him. Kevin says she doesn’t like you anyway. Kevin says who would go up Christmas? Paul says yeah but Alex will feel he betrayed her. Kevin doesn’t want Paul to tell her tonight because she’ll be miserable. Paul says tell her you need to think it over. Josh didn’t want to play chess. Paul and Christmas go to the lounge. Paul says he’s going to be straight forward with her. Paul says Alex has been securing jury the whole time and Paul has none. Paul says Alex may ask Christmas for a vote and send it to Josh to break the tie. Paul says we can blindside her but that will be even worse. 9:05 PM BBT Christmas says she’s not sure Josh will see they will all share the blood in this. Josh comes in and Paul asks where Alex is and Josh says she’s in the shower. Paul says they all need to tell Alex they want her out in their own way. Paul is explaining his strategy to tell Alex to Josh. He says he will tell her even if they make F2 (Alex and Paul) Paul would lose Christmas, Josh, and Kevin’s votes and he’s lost Jason’s, Cody’s, and Mark’s. Josh says Alex is telling Josh they have a plan and he’s screwed her over three times and he can’t do it a fourth time. 9:10 PM BBT Paul explains that they all have to be on the same page and say no otherwise Alex will go to Christmas and ask for a tie and put it on Josh to break the tie. Paul says Alex is expecting him to use it on her. Christmas says that’s why it was imperative for Kevin to win. Josh says Kevin threw it because he screwed up big time and even he didn’t max out. Christmas says let’s focus on Kevin later, let’s figure out the Alex thing before she gets out of the shower. Christmas asks Josh if he’s ok with telling Alex he told Paul he wouldn’t get his jury vote if he used POV. Josh says he’s not ok with it. Paul says you just said yes twice. Josh says he’s not ok with it but he’ll do it. Paul wants to know why he’s not ok with it. Christmas says we need to talk through it. Paul says our other options are to blindside her or expose ourselves. Christmas says those two options are not ok. Paul says if we expose ourselves she goes to jury and blows it for all of us. Josh says he doesn’t want it to seem like he gave Paul an ultimatum. 9:15 PM BBT Paul says Alex really wants to win and she knows she can. Christmas says Alex’s arrogance is annoying. Paul says he doesn’t want to something they aren’t ok with. Josh says fine. Christmas says you can’t just say fine or go off on a tangent. Josh says what’s a tangent? Christmas looks at Paul and says I’m done. Paul explains. Christmas says you need to talk to us and work through things and for all of us to be comfortable with the plan because if we make a decision and then you second guess it, then I will lose my crap. Paul says they are 2 comps away from final 3. He will intimidate the crap out of Kevin next week. Paul again goes over his speech to Alex. Josh says Alex is questioning Kevin throwing that comp. 9:20 PM BBT Josh says Alex is going to link him and Paul to Kevin. Paul says he doesn’t know what Kevin was thinking. Christmas says she will just say Alex will sweep her in comps. Paul says Alex could sweep over all of us. Kevin is walking through to the KT and talking to himself. He says Kevin, stop that! He says it three times. Christmas says ok, we have our plan in place. She tells Josh he needs to be cold hearted and Josh says he can’t do that. Christmas tells him not to make empty promises. Kevin put something in the microwave. He takes the bowl and stands in front of a camera and waves the spoon back and forth and then eats it. 9:25 PM BBT Christmas, Josh, and Paul are still hashing things out. They start talking about jury. Christmas curses Kevin out. Then says they haven’t seen C word Christmas come out, she will rape Kevin’s soul with her words.
  23. 8:30 PM BBT Josh listens to Paul and tells him to do what he’s comfortable with. Paul says he wants him to be comfortable to because he doesn’t want Josh to feel like he’s being screwed over. Paul tells Josh and Christmas that Kevin told him to throw HOH to him next week and he’d put up Josh and Christmas. Paul says he doesn’t want Alex to be mad at Josh and Christmas. Josh says he’s come to terms with the fact he isn’t going to make anyone happy. He says he opened his mouth too much and hurt people. 8:35 PM BBT Josh goes back out to the green bedroom and talks to Alex. He picks up the cowboy hat and asks if it’s Whistle’s and Alex says she found it under the bed, so she put it on the bed. Alex is filing her nails. Alex says it feels like Jason and Raven have been gone for so long. Josh says it was just 2 days ago. Josh says the game is getting harder because they all love each other. Josh says he really means it when he says he wants to be friends with people outside of the house. 8:40 PM BBT Josh is talking about the comp again and Alex thinks Kevin threw the comp and Josh says he struggled with Mark and Ramses’s comics and he doesn’t know if he did that bad how Kevin did worse. Alex didn’t like Ramses’ comic and Dominique’s was weird too. Josh says Kevin is fishy as F. Kevin is out of the shower and he says he liked Josh’s comment. Christmas tells Paul that Josh doesn’t want to take the heat for things, but then when you discuss things with him he says do what you want. She says that’s where her frustration comes from. Alex says she liked Elena and Josh said he did too and he liked Mark. Kevin says the NFL starts tomorrow. 8:45 PM BBT Kevin and Alex talk about football. Christmas and Paul are wrapping up their talk re-hashing the same things. They finally head out of the red bedroom. Paul goes into the HOH room and Christmas follows. Josh says he’s going up to listen to his music. 8:50 PM BBT Josh finally heads upstairs and reminds Kevin he can come up any time. Kevin says he knows that and Josh says well he keeps saying that but no one comes up. Alex heads up the HOH room and she’s going to shower. Alex sits on the couch and Christmas and Alex are complaining about Kevin. 8:55 PM BBT Josh joins the HOH room and Paul asks what time it was. Paul asks where Kevin was and Josh says in the corner where he normally is. Alex says 45 minutes was strange. Alex says there better not be a pendant of poop. Alex says why would you botch that? Josh says he’s been asking himself that. Paul says he thinks Kevin is color blind because Kevin told him that earlier in the season. Paul says that would make BB comics impossible if that’s true. Alex says why wouldn’t he have asked for help and Paul says you can’t. Christmas says she’s bored. Paul asks Josh if he wants to play chess.
  24. 8:00 PM BBT Alex is still eating and talking to Christmas about health foods and working out. Kevin washed the dishes. Josh is going upstairs to shower. He tells the others they can shower upstairs. He starts singing and we get FotH. Josh goes up to the camera in the HOH and says Hola Familia! He shouts out to his friends and family in Miami. He says he just had fun in BB Comics. He says wait until you see my comic, I look like a clown. Josh says it’s ok, it’s time to shower. Alex tells Paul to eat the rest of the steak. 8:05 PM BBT Josh puts his head phones on and is dancing. Everyone is finished eating and Kevin is doing the dishes. Kevin tells Alex he’s letting the glasses soak for a minute. Josh is told to turn his music down. Alex tells Paul she doesn’t think Paul’s looked like him and Paul says they boned him this year. He says they hate him this year. Paul says he’s going to lie down. 8:10 PM BBT Josh talking to the camera again. He says we think we’re 9 days away and a wake-up call. Paul and Kevin whispering in the green room. Paul tells Kevin to protect him next week and Kevin says he’ll win HOH next week. He’s going to ask for cards from the DR and he asks Alex as she walks by if she wants him to ask for anything. Josh is getting ready to shower, Paul is lying on his bed with his hat over his face. Alex goes into the red bedroom and asks who made their beds and Paul says he thinks Christmas did. 8:15 PM BBT Kevin tells Christmas he requested a deck of cards and they said they’d look into it. Christmas goes into the red bedroom and Paul says Kevin is such a F’ing Ahole. Kevin is going to take a shower. Christmas is tweezing hairs from Paul’s back and Paul says she’ll need to keep her voice down because Alex and Kevin might be right outside of the door. Christmas suggest Paul keeps his promise and uses veto on Alex and Josh puts Christmas up and they vote out Kevin. Christmas says then they can just battle it out. Paul says no because she could beat him and even if he wins HOH, she could win veto and Josh or Christmas would get clipped. Paul says there is no way he’s going to save her, but maybe there’s a way to distribute the blame so she doesn’t hate him. 8:20 PM BBT Paul says maybe he can tell Alex he was in a position where if he didn’t win veto he was going to be gone, and now that he did win veto, Kevin, Josh, and Christmas told Paul they would not vote for him to win. Kevin is in the lounge and doing shout outs to his family. He says he just did a comp and he did horrible. He says he’s still on the block and he’ll have been on the block three straight times. He says he knows he’s not coming off the block. Kevin is talking about how many days he’s been in the house. Christmas and Paul are still whispering trying to figure out how to sell to Alex Paul can’t save her. Kevin says he’s by himself in the game. He says Alex and Christmas are good competitors and then there’s Josh and Paul. He says he loves his family and he sends kisses to the camera. He says he forgot what his phone looks like. He says he needs to get one of his kids in there next year, they have to do better than him because he hasn’t won anything. Kevin says they will see on the nominations Josh went wild and called him a floater. Alex is in the LR and she says she captured another fly and holds it up for the camera. 8:25 PM BBT Christmas asks if it will be a Sunday eviction and Paul says he has another idea. Alex wants to build a house like the BB house on the Sims. Christmas and Paul are still tossing around ideas. Josh and Alex are in the LR. Alex says she’s bored. Josh goes and joins Christmas and Paul in the red bedroom. Paul talks to Josh about his dilemma with Alex. He pitches to Josh the idea he had pitched to Christmas about him losing three jury votes if he uses veto.
  25. 7:30 PM BBT Josh is saying he was stuck on Mark and Ramses’s comics. He couldn’t figure out what the difference was in them. General chatter about cooking.

Alex says Kevin’s competition shirt was very sweaty.
