The battle rounds of "The Voice" were shot in December long before anyone had an inkling as to who would be competing. At one three-hour session that saw five head-to-head battles, I walked away with four thoughts: too many songs from the '70s; no talent reached out and grabbed you by the throat; the judges got each decision correct; and how strange that the best performances of the night were on the same song, Journey's "Faithfully."
After Jermaine Jones' disqualification Wednesday night (March 14), there was added pressure for the remaining "American Idol" contestants both that night and Thursday (March 15) to make it past the fan vote.
Jermaine Jones, the proclaimed "gentle giant" who was brought back to the show after being eliminated prior to the semifinals, was announced Wednesday night (March 14) to be off the show -- for good this time.
In the end, not even J-Lo could save Jeremy Rosado. After earning a spot in the Top 13 via Lopez's wild card pick, the smooth-voiced 19-year-old became the first "Idol" contestant eliminated since the male and female contestants had been combined into one group.
