Topsy turvy Top 6 on 'The Voice'

Girls sing; pretty boys go away

Topsy turvy Top 6 on ‘The Voice’


"The Voice" just got a whole lot more interesting last night.

How so? Let us count the ways. The two pretty pinup guys – Dez Duron and Cody Belew – were eliminated, slashing the finalist pool from 8 to 6. Team Xtina is no more. And the Muppets invaded the show.

First, the results. All three female singers – Cassadee Pope, Melanie Martinez and Amanda Brown – advanced. (Pope and Martinez got bonus points for landing in the iTunes Top Ten. So did fellow finalist Nicholas David.)

Tyler McDermott and Trevin Hunte were the last two named to advance. And that meant, somewhat shockingly, that the eye candy quotient of Duron and Belew was gone. And that meant, rather happily, that Christina Aguilera has no dogs left in this hunt. Pack up the Lady Marmalade costume trailer, Benedict; our presence is no longer required.

Another highlight: the Muppets replaced Carson Daly and the judges. That lead to this delicious duet between Kermit and CeeLo Green, who was dressed as a jade kung fu panda.

Who knows more about being Green than CeeLo?
