The Voice Season 3 Finale (Spoilers In Case You Live Under A Rock)


In case you have not watched the episode still and don’t want to know who won do not continue. STOP NOW!! Ever since my move to LA, I have found many opportunities to see some of the shows I watch tape live. Last night I had the pleasure of being at The Voice’s Season 3 finale. It was an amazing show. All of the performances – taped and live – were great.

I will start with how the show began for me. It actually began about an hour before the show went live on the East Coast with Bruno Mars taping his performance of “When I Was Your Man” that they would playback during the live show. Three takes were shot of the performance. The first take was good but judge Christina Aguilera was not in her seat yet and they had to get some sound issues straightened out. The second take was cut short by Bruno because one of the instruments went out. The third take was great and was what they in the show.  After this, the stage was cleared and then some stuff with Christina and Adam Levine was shot for host, Carson Daly’s New Year’s Eve special. Way to save money NBC.

And now it’s 8pm on the East Coast and we are live. Everything is live up until the point where they cut to Rihanna’s performance of “Diamonds”. That was shot after the Monday performance show of The Voice. We sit and watch the performance on the video screen. At the end of it the audience stands to applaud and make it seem like it just happened in front of us. I have to say Rihanna has definitely improved from her “Pon De Replay” and “Unfaithful” days. She will never be the greatest singer but I can respect growth.  During the commercial break, the audience guy pumps up the crowd. He talks to the audience, there are t-shirt giveaways and music. While that is happening the audience keeps shouting to the coaches, who are getting touch-ups done on their makeup, tweeting or just walking around talking to crew members and producers.
