Chris Mann came in fourth? Tony Lucca was third? Oh America, did you not understand The Voice's voting rules? They were supposed to be the top 2, not the bottom pair. Then again, Juliet Simms and her screech were never supposed to make the finals, much less the runner-up spot. Not that winner Jermaine Paul isn't a fine enough singer. Nice range, nice looking...and no edge. Nothing like the dynamic Mann, opera's hotter Ben Stiller who devastated us with Monday's cover of Josh Groban's "You Lift Me Up," or Lucca, the gifted crooner Christina Aguilera hates more than wearing clothes that fit.
Honestly, when Carson read off Chris and Tony's names first, there was a collective Watercooler gasp. And not just because the two looooong hours leading up to the announcement felt like we were passing a musical stone. It just made no sense (like most of Juliet's costume choices). Perhaps it was the highly publicized bad blood between Christina and Adam Levine that split to vote, or maybe the country contingent just rallied for Team Blake to avoid another loss. Whatever the case, Jermaine's win was a real shocker.
But was it a real thrill? You tell us below!
