A long-term, loving relationship requires honesty — even when it’s uncomfortable or upsetting. And so, as much as The Voice has, essentially, put a ring on it (in terms of my DVR series-recording loyalty), I’m not going to sit here and pretend that Season 6’s Top 8 performance night lived up to the coaches’ unbridled, eye-rolling superlatives — or that Adam Levine’s new hair color is anything other than toxic.

Tonight’s Top 10 results telecast found Bria Kelly declaring her desire to subsist solely on a variety of cheeses, Usher confessing that he likes to cook in his underwear (as if we didn’t already suspect from his torso an aversion to deep-fried foods) and Shakira, in her infinite blurt-iness, sharing this gem: “I can wiggle all the things …READ MORE
The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Murder by (Adam's Phone) Numbers [Updated]
Yes, The Voice is a singing competition, but it’s also a numbers game: How many votes you get each week. How many iTunes singles you sell.

The Voice Top 12 Results Recap: Did the Right Contestants Get Cut This Week? [Updated]
Growing up, my mom always had verrrry strong ideas about wearing white after Labor Day. She did not, however, provide me with any guidance about the protocol for rocking a sheer body stocking with not-entirely-opaque undergarments, an eye-popping look that Shakira sported as she half-sang, half-mouthed her rockin’ new single “Empire” tonight on The Voice‘s Top 12 results telecast.
