After the fans had the chance to use their instant save, two contestants were sent home this week, revealing The Voice season 5’s top eight contestants.

It was a hot night on The Voice, as host Carson Daly revealed the big news that coach Adam Levine has been named this year’s People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive. He showed off Adam’s cover shot, and it’s hard to disagree with the magazine’s choice. Then again, fans of The Voice have been appreciating Adam’s sexiness for years now. Adam’s true love Blake took the opportunity to point out that he thinks Adam is most beautiful on the inside, and the men shared a bromantic embrace.

The Results

Carson announced America’s votes over the course of the show, and in the end, the bottom three contestants were revealed: Team Cee Lo’s Kat Robichaud and Caroline Pennell, and Team Blake’s Austin Jenkes. Cee Lo and Blake both made their pleas, and America was once again given a last-minute chance to save their favorite contestant, using this season’s new Twitter fan save. But after America’s five minutes were up, the results were revealed: Caroline Pennell was saved, meaning Austin Jenckes and Kat Robichaud would not be moving forward in the competition.

The Performances

Team Christina’s Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee joined their coach to perform a medley of some of the Jackson family’s greatest hits, including Janet’s “Black Cat”, Michael’s “Bad”, and both siblings’ “Scream”. It was a great performance from all three vocalists, and definitely the best team performance we’ve seen so far. Jacquie and Christina started out with their own little duet, and it was once again clear that Christina is training the little diva in her own image, and Jacquie has quite a career ahead of her. As for Matthew, it was great to see him get to sing The King of Pop, and make the songs his own.

Rockers James Wolpert, Will Champlin, and Kat Robichaud took the stage to sing Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” It was an excellent performance from all three great vocalists, and all three contestants played guitar and rocked out like real pros. Though it’s always interesting to hear a performance of the song and understand the actual words after years of hearing Patrick Stump’s notorious weird pronunciations.

Blake Shelton’s team of sharp-dressed men (Cole Vosbury, Ray Boudreaux, and Austin Jenckes) teamed up with their coach to perform ZZ Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man.” It was a fun song, and a great choice for these charismatic vocalists. All four men were dressed quite sharply for the performance, and seemed to have a great time performing the classic song.

The unconventional pairing of Tessanne Chin and Caroline Pennell took the stage together for a performance of Lorde’s hit “Royals”, and they actually sounded outstanding. Their voices blended beautifully, and suited the song perfectly. It was a unique performance that brought out the best in both unique performers. And while one would think Tessanne’s powerful voice would overpower Caroline’s sweeter tone, but their paired perfectly, and it made for a great duet.

‘The Voice’ Confessional

This week’s The Voice Confessional had the contestants, coaches, and advisors talking about their most embarrassing moments. Mostly it was just a lot of people falling down, with a side of eating other people’s food, wearing eye patches, singing telegrams, and talking about periods. Christina Aguilera suggested that you just google her most embarrassing moment, though it might have a little something to do with her beautiful tribute to Etta James gone awry.

The Voice top eight contestants perform next Monday at 8 p.m., with the elimination results revealed Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.

What did you think of the eliminations on ‘The Voice’ this week?

In a new trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, we see what the creature can do while still inside her sarcophagus. Imagine what’ll happen once she gets out.

When the previous teaser trailer dropped, we remarked on how Universal’s first outing in its shared monster universe is shaping up to be a good old-fashioned scary movie.

This second trailer definitely puts an emphasis on the action, as we see Cruise’s character enduring all kinds of destruction even before the princess mummy is raised from her tomb.

In a new trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, we see what the creature can do while still inside her sarcophagus. Imagine what’ll happen once she gets out.

When the previous teaser trailer dropped, we remarked on how Universal’s first outing in its shared monster universe is shaping up to be a good old-fashioned scary movie.

This second trailer definitely puts an emphasis on the action, as we see Cruise’s character enduring all kinds of destruction even before the princess mummy is raised from her tomb.

Watch the full-length trailer for The Mummy below:

The description for the video reads:

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years — with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.

Despite initial criticism over rebooting The Mummy franchise, this film certainly looks to be a different beast than the one starring Brendan Fraser. Better yet, it also looks to be a movie worthy of Cruise’s action hero status.

New ‘The Mummy’ images

The new trailer also came with several new images starring the main players of the film, and some great shots of Sofia Boutella as the mummy herself.

Guardians of the Galaxy was a major hit because of its offbeat characters, and own brand of humor not yet seen in Marvel movies. Fans have anxiously been waiting to see if the sequel would live up to the hype of the first film. The first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gives us a glimpse at what’s to come, and we’re loving it!

Take a look at the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 below:

Most notable in the trailer is baby Groot! He was well-loved in the first film and many wondered how involved he would become in the second film, given that he had been reborn after saving his friends. It appears that baby Groot will be just as involved in the action as before, and is causing trouble of his own! It should be fun seeing if Rocket can keep up with his friend as he grows.

Also touched upon in the trailer is Star-Lord’s feelings for Gamora. Somehow his friends are surprised by this news, and Drax even thinks it’s hilarious when the secret is made public. This whole scene makes us even more anxious to see this group together again. Only a couple more months to go! May 2017, can you please hurry up?

The official synopsis for the film teases:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”
