It's a good thing that there's no official drinking game associated with The Voice. Because if I had to take a shot of root beer schnapps every time somebody cried, and another five shots every time that somebody was me, I'd probably be passed out in a shopping cart somewhere.

And hearing Jamar Rodgers' speech about how your life is never really over, even if you're HIV positive?

And that's exactly what happens when Jeff McBride opens up and nails everyone to Christina's zebra-print floor with Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools." Immediately, both Christina and Jeff's mentor, Lionel Richie, show him the palms of their hands, like, Nuh-uh! "This is not coming out of a microphone!" exclaims Richie. "This is not coming out of a speaker!"
