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?

Warm up those microscopes — Bill Nye is coming back to television thanks to Netflix!

Netflix has announced Bill Nye Saves the World, a new talk show slated for Spring 2017.

In a statement, Netflix says “each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”

“Since the start of the Science Guy show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science,” said Bill Nye in a press release.

“Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.”

Netflix also promises that “In Bill’s unfiltered style, he will bring in special guests, conduct experiments and demonstrations, and ultimately let the facts lead the argument.”

Bill Nye is best known for Bill Nye the Science Guy, the half-hour PBS show that ran from 1993 through 1998.

The theme song is iconic. Science RULES!

The new Netflix series seems like a continuation of Bill Nye the Science Guy, so we’re very excited for the new show to launch in 2017.

Your wish is Marvel’s command. Fans have wanted to see a live-action Squirrel Girl adaptation, and it looks like it might actually happen thanks to New Warriors.

If you don’t know who Squirrel Girl is, do yourself a favor and look her up. Her name is Doreen Green and, shockingly, she can talk to squirrels. (Who would’ve guessed?) But it doesn’t stop there! She’s also got super strength and speed.

Fans have been fantasy casting the role for a while, but when Anna Kendrick said she wanted to play the character, the internet went wild.

Your wish is Marvel’s command. Fans have wanted to see a live-action Squirrel Girl adaptation, and it looks like it might actually happen thanks to New Warriors.

If you don’t know who Squirrel Girl is, do yourself a favor and look her up. Her name is Doreen Green and, shockingly, she can talk to squirrels. (Who would’ve guessed?) But it doesn’t stop there! She’s also got super strength and speed.

Fans have been fantasy casting the role for a while, but when Anna Kendrick said she wanted to play the character, the internet went wild.

Shannon Purser has also declared her interest in the role. You’ll know her as Barb from Stranger Things, but she’s also just been added to Riverdale.

Before we can start casting, however, we need a show, and according to TV Line, that show is New Warriors.

Marvel and ABC Studios are currently shopping the project around, which would be a half-hour comedy based on the character. One of the tell-tale signs of a Squirrel Girl story line is its lighthearted and humorous nature, so this sounds like a perfect fit.

TV Line reports that the show is being described as “the junior version of The Avengers,” and that “the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers.”

Marvel has, of course, brought plenty of its characters to the small screen and to great success. There’s even a chance that this project could be tied to some of the Netflix properties, as Doreen acts as a nanny to Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ daughter, Danielle, in the comic books.

Just think about that crossover potential.

Are you looking forward to this ‘New Warriors’ show if it stars Squirrel Girl?

Shannon Purser plays fan-favorite character Barb on Stranger Things and now she’s joining a new project on The CW.

A lot of people instantly fell in love with Barb the moment she graced our screens in the Netflix hit series Stranger Things, and who can blame them? She was cool, confident, and not at all worried about what the popular kids thought of her.

Then the Demogorgon arrived. But that’s a tale for another day.

Then the Demogorgon arrived. But that’s a tale for another day.

EW is now reporting that Purser has joined Riverdale, the television show based on the Archie comics.

Purser will be portraying Ethel Muggs for at least three episodes.

Don’t expect her to follow in the footsteps of her comic book equivalent, however. Ethel may have a crush on Jughead in the source material, but EW is reporting that she’ll have her heart set on someone else.

Ethel will also be teaming up with Veronica and Betty as they set out to get revenge on Reggie Mantle, Archie’s nemesis.

In July, we brought you our thoughts on the Riverdale pilot after we saw it at San Diego Comic-Con. It’ll be premiering midseason next winter on the CW and provides a darker spin on the original Archie characters as they become wrapped up in a murder mystery.

Though the pilot has already been shot, the remaining 12 episodes have yet to be filmed. Production on the rest of the season will begin in early September, and the show is expected to premiere in early 2017, barring any complications.

Are you looking forward to seeing Shannon Purser on ‘Riverdale’?
