Sixteen-year-old Jacquie Lee is the youngest contestant on Season 5 of The Voice, but she also might be its shrewdest. Her Live Playoffs performance last week of “I Put a Spell on You” was so out-of-left-field scintillating, it’s got my Reality Check co-host Melinda Doolittle shouting things like, “You don’t do that to nobody’s children’s hospital!” (Don’t worry — it’ll make sense in context.)
Fret not, though, Melinda and I don’t just spend this week’s episode in total agreement. In fact, we wage an intense debate over the merits of Team Adam members Preston Pohl and Will Champlin, and whether their coach made the right call in choosing the latter contestant as his third and final artist to advance to the Top 12.
Not only that, but we dish controversial decisions made by Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera — and question the “Crazy” singer’s overall coaching strategies.
