"The Voice": The Final Four take on the semifinals
"The Voice" got into the holiday spirit Monday with a performance from Michael Buble, as its top four contestants performed in the semifinals.
Host Carson Daly also took time to acknowledge the death of singer Jenni Rivera, who was a coach on the Mexican version of the reality series. "On a sad note tonight, our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Jenni Rivera. She was a coach on The Voice Mexico, a personal friend and a talented artist and will be greatly missed by many," he said.
After Buble sang "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," the Final Four took the stage. And while Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine have no competitors left on their teams, they still had high praise for Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton's singers.
Team Cee Lo went first, with Trevin Hunte taking on the ballad "Wind Beneath My Wings." Green said his voice was "amazingly beautiful," while Aguilera said he "took it to a whole 'nother level."
Then, Nicolas David sang "You Are So Beautiful," which he dedicated to his family.
"It was so heartfelt, so beautiful," Green said. Levine called him "one of the most soulful people I've ever met."
Team Blake was up next. Cassadee Pope sang a rendition of "Stupid Boy," which was chosen for her by her coach.
"Nobody that's ever been on this show can do what you just did," Shelton told her.
"Sometimes your voice sounds so right on that you sound so Auto-Tuned," Aguilera gushed. "The passion that you evoke, it brings your lyrics to life, I believe you, that's what's so important. Blake, you have a true superstar on your hands."
The last performance of the night came from Terry McDermott, who performed The Beatles' "Let It Be."
Levine told him, "You did an incredible job," while Shelton called the song "sacred ground" but said his rendition was "musical perfection."
One of these four will be sent home during Tuesday's episode.
