Reality Rocks headed to "The Voice" Season 4's finale this Tuesday, where I caught up with new winner Danielle Bradbery, runner-up Michelle Chamuel, and third-placers the Swon Brothers, along with host and avowed music fan Carson Daly (who had lots to say about the future of "The Voice" and its long-term credibility).Read More »from Exclusive Video: On the Scene at the Season 4 ‘Voice’ Finale

I found it odd and awkward when, at the beginning of "So You Think You Can Dance's" top 20 reveal episode this Tuesday, Nigel Lythgoe stated that he and his fellow judges had "invested in dancers we're not sure about." Um, what's not to be sure about? For the most part, this season's semifinalists are an amazing bunch, as their first live onstage performances readily proved.Read More »from Season 10 ‘SYTYCD’ Top 20 Semifinalists Revealed!
Danielle Bradbery wins "The Voice"!Golden girl Danielle Bradbery made history on Tuesday night's "Voice" finale, becoming the youngest contestant to ever win the series. The 16-year-old country sweetheart also made her coach Blake Shelton, who turned 37 on Tuesday, a very happy birthday boy, giving him another reason to celebrate as he scored his third "Voice" victory in a row.
Danielle was so overcome with happy tears upon hearing the news, she could barely sing her victory song, "Born to Fly." Instead, she spent most of the performance hugging the coaches, her fellow contestants, and her relatives, as she wept and brushed finale confetti from her flaxen hair.

Last night, "The Voice" top three competed in the finals, and today, they dominate the iTunes chart, with a whopping seven "Voice" songs in the top 10. This bodes well for "The Voice" franchise in general, indicating that all three acts (Team Blake's Danielle Bradbery and Swon Brothers, and Team Usher's Michelle Chamuel) could go on to successful careers after this season ends. But which one of them will win on the big Season 4 finale this evening?Read More »from The Voice, The Day After: Top 3 Performances Dish
Last week, "X Factor" girl group Fifth Harmony could no longer contain their excitement, so they uploaded a preview of their debut single, "Miss Movin' On," to Vine. The mini-clip was just six seconds of Dinah-Jane, Ally, Camila, Normani, and Lauren dancing with abandon in some living room, lip-synching for their lives to their own track. It was, of course, six seconds of awesomeness.
Seriously, all artists should debut their new music this way. BEST. PREVIEW. EVER.Read More »from Fifth Harmony Debut New Single in Most Adorable Way Possible

Will Adam Levine's prediction that Danielle will win come true?Monday night on "The Voice," on the final competitive episode of Season 4, Team Blake's country contenders Danielle Bradbery and the Swon Brothers faced off against Team Usher's quirky girl Michelle Chamuel. Each of the contestants did three songs: one new number, one reprise of a "defining moment" from earlier in the season, and one duet with his/her/their coach. And by the end of the night, it was looking like Blake Shelton was on his way to a third consecutive "Voice" victory, thanks to his golden child/chosen one, Danielle. Even Adam Levine predicted Danielle would win.Read More »from ‘The Voice’ Finals Recap: The Golden Girl, the Nerdy Girl, and the Good Ole Boys

"The Voice" Season 4 finale is this week, and as usual, NBC has a pretty impressive slew of talent lined up. Earlier today, it was announced that Hunter Hayes and OneRepublic will be two contestants' duet partners, and now Yahoo!'s Reality Rocks can exclusively reveal that reclusive rock legend Bob Seger will also be dueting on Tuesday's big show.
It's no shocker that heartland country-rockers the Swon Brothers, whose recent stellar cover of Bob's "Turn the Page" help propel them to the finale, are singing with Seger. As for the other two duets, Hunter will surely be the perfect match for country-pop teen Danielle Bradbery, while pop-rocker Michelle Chamuel will surely hold her own alongside Ryan Tedder and company.
While the specific song that the Swons and Seger will be performing is still secret (my vote is for "Night Moves"; just putting that out there), it is known that Hunter and Danielle will duet on "I Want Crazy," and OneRepublic and Michelle will be doing "Counting Stars."Read More »from They’ve Got Tonight: Bob Seger to Duet With Swon Brothers on ‘Voice’ Finale

photos: NBC"The Voice" Season 4 is coming to an end. This means that Shakira and Usher will soon vacate the red spinning chairs that they've been keeping warm for on-hiatus coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, who'll return to the show this fall.
Shakira and Usher have become popular "Voice" cast members during their short run on the show — some viewers even seem to prefer them to their predecessors, if the comments in this very blog have been anything to go by. But don't worry: Shakira and Usher will be back next year, for Season 6. And those of you who've been missing Xtina and Cee Lo, fear not — their return in Season 5 is just a few months away.
But until then, it's time to ask the inevitable question: Who judged it best? Let's answer that by staging our own Shakira/Xtina and Usher/Cee Lo "battle rounds"…Read More »from ‘Voice’ Fans: Are You Team Xtina or Team Shakira? Team Usher or Team Cee Lo?

Was Grace Askew robbed?This has become an annual tradition (or, in the case of "The Voice," a biannual one): listing the robbed finalists, semifinalists, and auditioners from any given talent show. Not all of my favorites can make a show's top 10, and obviously, only one can win. So any singing-show season offers its unfair share of heartache.
It's both a blessing and a curse on "The Voice" in particular that the talent level is so high and the talent pool so deep. This ensures that a lot of very worthy candidates will get cut in the Battle Rounds, the Knockout Rounds, or even in the Blind Auditions…while on other talent shows, they may have gone all the way.Read More »from The 10 Most-Robbed Contestants Of ‘The Voice’ Season 4
