After conceding its regular Tuesday slot to the presidential election, The Voice returned with live performances from Team Cee Lo and Team Christina. We rank the best performances of the night in our Live Playoffs Part 2 recap.

Teams Adam and Blake had the chance to prove what they were made of on Monday as puffy-shirted Cee Lo and pink-haired Christina looked on. Red, white and blue were the colors of the night for coaches Christina and Cee Lo Wednesday as they watched their teams take the stage together singing My Chemical Romance’s “Sing.”

Team Cee Lo

1. Trevin Hunte

Nothing puts a bigger smile on our faces than listening to Trevin’s dulcet tones. He’s only 18 years old and he’s likely the frontrunner in the competition. Singing Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You,” Trevin overshadowed everyone.

2. Nicholas David

Minnesota soulman Nicholas David did Cee Lo proud with Barry White’s “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything.” He said he didn’t quite understand swagger, but it looked like he got it as he strutted around the stage. In fact, he did so well, Adam Levine felt “like making a baby after listening to that song.”

3. Cody Belew

Who knew one could successfully shimmy to George Michael’s “One More Try”? Cody Belew proved shimmying during a ballad only makes the performance better, as do his killer high notes.

4. MacKenzie Bourg

Twitter: @BourgMacKenzie

The “Harry Potter-meets-Justin-Bieber” singer continued his streak of putting his spin on bubblegum pop songs (remember his take on “Call Me Maybe”?) – this time with One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” He even put his guitar aside after the opening. MacKenzie has our vote for most adorable.

5. Diego Val

Twitter: @DiegoValMusic

“Sexy, hairy” Diego Val found his inner Latin lover for Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailamos.” As Adam Levine mentioned, the Peruvian singer seemed disengaged at times, but he still showcased his natural rasp.

Team Christina

1. Sylvia Yacoub

Twitter: @SylvsYacoub

The Egyptian singer went for a softer, stripped down performance by playing the piano during Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away.” Cee Lo called it his favorite performance of the night and we don’t disagree. Sylvia Yacoub is a powerhouse with a beautiful vulnerable side.

2. De’Borah

Twitter: @MusicTrappa

The Chicago church singer took on Pink’s “Who Knew” adding extra soul to the emotional song. Anyone else would have looked awkward skipping around the stage the way she did, but De’Bo’s movement evoked only pain and emotion.

3. Dez Duron

Twitter: @DezDuron

The former Louisiana football player put the Dez twist on Hunter Hayes’ “Wanted.” The ladies in the crowd loved him (read: his face) and we loved his runs (read: his bod).

4. Devyn Deloera

Twitter: @DevynDeLoera

The Texas singer showed off her more vulnerable side, with Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.” An otherwise great vocal performance was overshadowed by Devyn’s struggle to hit some of the high notes and her overly dramatic and rehearsed moves.

5. Adriana Louise

Twitter: @Adriana_Louise

Nerves may have gotten the better of Adriana Louise during her rendition of Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Though it got better as it went on, she seemed to have difficulty with the lower notes in the beginning. Still, the judges had nothing but kind words for the Brooklyn waitress.

Season 2 winner Jermaine Paul and Maroon 5 will return to The Voice during Thursday’s results show where Adam Levine’s band will debut its new single, “Daylight.”

America will save two contestants on each team by voting on Facebook,, and via phone, text message or by purchasing the an artists’ cover song on iTunes. Voting ends at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday. During Thursday’s results show, the coaches will each save one more artist per team, taking three artists on to the Top 12 next week.

Although each team will say goodbye to two contestants this week, things change starting next week. As per a new rule change, the two artists with the lowest votes will be eliminated no matter the team.

Who should move on in the competition?

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?

Uh oh — fans of Nick and Jess aren’t going to like this news! Megan Fox is returning to New Girl in season 6 for a major arc.

Last season, Megan Fox stepped in to fill in Jess’ place while Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. During that time, Fox’s character Regan grew quite close to Nick! They even ended up going to Cece and Schmidt’s wedding together and made plans for the summer. With awful timing too, since it seemed like Jess was just about ready to admit her feelings for Nick.

Now TV Line is reporting that Fox will be returning for a huge story arc in New Girl season 6. It’s believed that Nick will return home from his summer with Regan alone, but she will appear around the middle of the season. The timing of her appearance is due to Fox’s own pregnancy with her third child.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the writers will definitely be throwing some angst into the script. It always seems like either Jess or Nick is pining for the other while they’re in a relationship. Will Jess try to get over her feelings for Nick with someone else? Or will she just try to show him why they should be together? Fans will have to wait and see when the show returns!

New Girl season 6 returns to Fox on September 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET!

Are you excited to see Megan Fox return to ‘New Girl’?
