Monday and Tuesday December 17th and 18th was The Voice Season 3 Finals!
It’s been a three month journey watching and blogging about The Voice Season 3. There have been artists I love, loathe, and tolerate. I truly believe this is the best TV singing competition ever. Season 3 amped it up even more than Season 2, and there were some very interesting characters this year.
With the start of tonight’s show the cast sang Hallelujah in remembrance of the victims of the shooting in Connecticut. They each held a name card of one of the victims. I thought that this was very nice and respectful that they did this. As per usual there were several non competition performances on Monday you can see them below:
Cassadee Pope sang Faith Hill’s Cry
Cassadee oh Cassadee, I loved the staging that was used for this song. I loved hearing her powerful, yet vulnerable voice on this. Again Cassadee shows you just how she can connect with a lyrics, and the audience.
You can get Cassadee Pope’s version of Cry Here
You can get Cassadee and Blake’s version of Steve McQueen Here
Terry McDermott sang Mr. Mister’s Broken Wings
Terry continues to rock on! This time to one of his son’s favorite songs. I love the spin that Terry has put on all the classic rock songs that he has done. I’m torn between choosing him or Cassadee as my pick to win.

You can get Terry and Blake’s version of Dude, Looks Like A Lady Here
Nicholas David sang a melody of Jerry Lee Lewis’s Great Balls Of Fire and Jimi Hendrix’s Fire
I gotta say that I really dig Nicholas combining songs, and singing them as a medley together. It was an amazing performance. However I do think this season is either Cassadee’s or Terry’s.

On Tuesday night there were more awesome performances as well. I’ve only included video embeds to the ones with the contestants, you can check out NBC The Voice’s YouTube Channel for the others.
AND THE WINNER IS…..
Final Thoughts on The Voice Season 3 Finals:
Season 3 of The Voice was amazing. Just like Season 2, I had artists I loved, and artists I couldn’t stand. I’m so glad that Cassadee Pope won the season!!! She has broken out of being in a band, to being a full fledged solo artist. I can’t wait til Cassadee releases an album.
Terry got second and Nicholas third place, I’m happy with these results. I’ll also be on the lookout for anything Terry puts out.
Other artists from Season 3 that I love, and will support in the future are:
Rudy Parris as well as some others. Season 3 had awesome performances, and great guest spots. I’m so looking forward to Season 4!!!
