Music, concerts, musicians and more.
Trevin sweated, Nicholas rocked back and forth, and Melanie and Amanda embraced in the dramatic moments before Carson Daly announced which singers would be "saved by America" during last night's "The Voice." Unfortunately, those moments took up just a few minutes of the show, and the rest of the hour was packed with filler -- bland updates from the tweet room, boring group performances,...Read more »

Two down ... eight remain. Last night on “The Voice” live results show, Bryan Keith and Sylvia Yacoub were sent packing. Poor Sylvia, who did a very shaky version of Alicia Key’s “Girl on Fire,” even suffered one last indignity near the end when they were down to the final three performers with only one save left.
