The Voice: Maroon 5 Performs 'Daylight' Live And Jermaine Paul's Reappearance On Live Television

Maroon 5

Sorry, but I have to be blunt this time. Who cares about the 8 unfortunate contestants who were eliminated from The Voice Season 3 on its very first Live Playoffs Elimination Night? Maybe you do, but for as long as Team Adam's Melanie Martinez and Team Christina's Sylvia Yacoub make it to the next rounds, I am at peace.

I didn't really care about the whole elimination round at all. Not that I am smug or something, but because the first live performance from the ranks of the Coaches had been showcased. First up was Adam and his Maroon 5 band performing the third track in their Overexposed album. Performing live on The Voice for the first time this season, here's Maroon 5 with the song Daylight:

When I saw all the Maroon 5 members garbed in blue, all worries on the elimination had been blown away. I was only placed back to reality when Carson Daly was already on the move with the first elimination. Joselyn Rivera, Liz Davis, Julio Cesar Castillo, Loren Allred, De'Borah, Diego Val, MacKenzie Bourg and Devyn DeLoera were sure to go home, but I was simply left in a state of trance to even make a huge reaction. Well, maybe I was a little sad when Devyn DeLoera wasn't saved by Xtina...

Top 12 of The Voice Season 3
Another piece of surprising news was the reappearance of The Voice Season 2 winner, Jermaine Paul. It's been a long time since we last saw him in live television and I also think his album was all too long overdue. He was even overtaken by the release of Chris Mann's debut album titled Roads. For now, lets enjoy his live performance of the song I Believe In This Life:

The show closed with the official list of the Top 12 contenders who will move on the next rounds. Who among Amanda Brown, Melanie Martinez and Bryan Keith from Team Adam; Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David and Cody Belew from Team Cee Lo; Dez Duron, Sylvia Yacoub and Adriana Louise from Team Xtina; and Terry McDermott, Cassadee Pope and Michaela Paige from Team Blake will make it to the finals? Have your say by voting on the next episodes. Catch the Top 12 performances on November 12, 2012, to be followed by the results night a day after. The Voice airs on NBC at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
