In a first for the reality competition, a wildcard contestant has been chosen by America to come back to compete for the finals.
The Voice host Carson Daly, who also happens to be a Today Show correspondant, hosted the top three contestants this morning for a quick interview on the show.
Team Adam’s Chris Jamison and Matt McAndrews, and Team Blake’s Craig Wayne Boyd, all seemed a little bit tired, but really excited about being in the finals.
Carson spoke to them briefly, before welcoming the wildcard winner onto the stage: Team Adam’s Damien. Damien is thrilled to have accomplished his goal of making it to the finals, with only a slight setback along the way. He was also exhausted after a night of not much sleep, which is not surprising, considering he had to be up for the Today Show’s live East Coast broadcast.
There was lots of awkward hugging all around, as Chris and Matt were thrilled to see their teammate return. Adam, whenever he woke up to the information on the West Coast, will surely be thrilled to find out that his entire team remains intact for the finals. Having one coach’s entire team intact for the finals is another Voice first. We’ll surely hear a lot of bragging about that from Adam next week.
So it will be a battle of winning coaches in the finals: Adam versus Blake. Blake is the winningest coach in Voice history, with three winning contestants, but Adam is right behind him with two. Adam would certainly love to tie that up, and there will undoubtedly be plenty of heckling next week.
