The Voice: Disastrous Elminination of Melanie Martinez And Amanda Brown, Leaving Team Adam With Zero Acts

Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown Eliminated From The Voice

Carson Daly was actually right with his summation during the Top 6 Live Performances. The remaining artists have been through it all -- intense competition, grueling rehearsals and heartbreaking eliminations. That is why whoever got eliminated this week are already winners on their own right.

The pressure doubled when the Top 6 had to perform twice during the night. They performed one song that they personally chose and another chosen by their coach. But at the end of the elimination night two unfortunate artists went home after gaining the lowest public votes.

It was with great sadness that I faced Melanie Martinez's elimination, together with Amanda Brown, leaving Team Adam with zero artists to the next rounds. Only Teams Blake and Cee Lo have the chance to grab this year's crown on The Voice.

It was sad to see that Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown has to go home, pitting Adam with the fate Christina Aguilera experienced a week ago. Lets us watch again these two artist's last performances:

Melanie Martinez: Crazy by Cee Lo Green (Personal Choice) / The Show by Lenka (Coach's Choice)

Before the elimination round, Melanie Martinez was the only one remaining among my two most favorite (the first one to go was Sylvia Yacoub). Maybe her blue hair-dye made that difference and contributed to her bad luck. Only one thing stuck to my mind, though: this New York high school artistic soul has achieved a feat of staying on the show up to the Top 6 that not many "silent singers" has achieved in The Voice before.

At least she has expressed her self in the show through her unique artistry. Her lullaby effect, as Christina Aguilera said it, is the best thing about her that is why I loved her so much. It just made me sad that I have no more favorites left in the show.

Amanda Brown: (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin (Personal Choice) / Here I Go Again by Whitesnake (Coach's Choice)

Despite only being stolen by Adam from Cee Lo, Amanda has proven her singing prowess by making it this far in the show. I always thought that she could make it up to the Semi-Finals, but I guess her powerful performance isn't just enough to save her from leaving the show.

This is the part where talent is already disregarded and the popularity game has become the fuel of the show. The fact that she was the last of Adam Levine's artists after Melanie was first eliminated made her elimination even harder to accept.

The Voice Top 6 During Elimination
The Voice moves on with the Top 4 who will face each other in the Semi-Finals. Their live performances will be aired on December 10, 2012 and will be followed by the elimination round a day after, leaving only two artists to battle it out on the Grand Finals. I bet Cassadee Pope will make it through and has the great chance of actually winning the third season of The Voice.

But before we can ascertain this prediction, watch the remaining rounds only on NBC at exactly 8 PM Eastern Time.

PS: Go Team Blake! Go Team Cee Lo! Good Luck to the remaining artists, namely Cassadee Pope, Trevin Hunte, Nicholas David and Terry McDermott.
