Okay, quick: who's your favorite coach on The Voice? Your answer tells as much about you as it might to reveal your favorite Beatle. Blake's the heart of the whole operation. (Sharing his sarsaparilla with that poor mustache guy who looked like he'd escaped from the "Dream of the 1890s" sketch!) Adam's the guts. (He's willing to turn his chair for some risky choices, but that's only because he's too cocky to think he won't win.) Christina's the voice. (Blake didn't concede that she's "one of the greatest singers of her generation" for nothing.) And Cee Lo's the loins. (What was all that talk about "the package"?) So, tonight, let's break this down team by team.
TEAM CHRISTINA: THE BELLOWERS
Brazilian-born family man Jonathas learned English by listening to music, and judging by the amount of time he spends praising "the American dream," I'm betting that music was a bit of Springsteen, and a whole lot more Springsteen. Jonathas lays it on so smooth during Usher's "U Got It Bad," crooning up his finest scented-candle R&B while doing a little pump-it! dance with his hips, that Cee Lo claims he thought Usher was actually singing. But all Christina has to do to steal Jonathas away from Cee Lo is bat those false eyelashes and purr: "I want to mold you and package you and do the right thing by you." And that's it. It's all over. Jonathas, who confesses that he's had "the hots" for Christina since fifth grade, goes with Team Teenage Crush. Guess he wants Christina to do right by his package. Or something like that.
