The Voice: Juliet Simms Won't Make It A Man's World - The Voice Finals Rankings! Rankings and Commentary by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Joseph Braverman

It's A Man's World
Wow, can you believe we are almost done with NBC’s The Voice Season 2?
The season started off very strong in the blind auditions, but then dragged along in the Battle Rounds – not to mention having unfair cuts of some very talented contestants – and finally picked itself up somewhat in the Live Rounds.
Overall, as the ratings have shown, not as many people are invested in this season’s performers as last year.
Last year’s final four were more exciting and were fully comfortable with themselves as artists.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
I have no problems with Teams Cee Lo and Adam, because Juliet Simms and Tony Lucca deserve to be where they are at, but Teams Christina and Blake are downright awful.
Chris Mann has to be one of the most overrated contestants to come along in quite some time.
He cannot cover modern music well at all – do you not remember his Coldplay cover?
In worse news, Chris Mann’s ability to perform his signature opera style is not even too impressive. I’ve heard way better vocal prodigies and tenors in my day, and Chris Mann certainly isn’t among the elite.
So why then is he in the finale? As Juliet Simms sang last week, this is a “Man’s Man’s Man’s World.”
Jermaine Paul, the backup singer for Alicia Keys, brings nothing new to the table they we haven’t already seen.
He can sing R&B and pop pretty well. Okay, what else do you have to offer?
I don’t find Jermaine an interesting or unique talent. His voice is decent, but still doesn’t stand out amongst a crowd, hence his former background status.
He has a lot of momentum, and I worry he may win if the American public once again sides with the more favored gender.
Tony Lucca, while not the best vocalist left, has managed to create two incredibly electric performances from the sole power of his creativity.
The guy can spin a song and sell it to the max.
“How You Like Me Now?” and “Hit Me Baby One More Time” were two of the highlights of the season for me, and I couldn’t help but appreciate Tony for not traveling down that average singer route, and picking the most predictable songs you can sing without showing an ounce of creativity or originality.
