'The Voice' recap: Fight the Power
Adam's up first, welcoming his twelve singers. He's put Mr. Mickey Mouse Club Tony Lucca against Chris Cauley (the guy who performed with his grandma at local nursing homes), and they are doing U2's "Beautiful Day." Chris is bummed that he's going against someone actually talented. They are starting to do some work on their song, and going note by note, and Adam's freaked about having to cut one of them.
Adam sets Tony up with Alanis Morissette as a mentor. She actually looks pretty great, even with the ever-present insanely long hair. She's having some sort of spiritual discussion with Tony, and the poor pianist sitting there looks about as bored as I am. Adam thinks that his voice sounds like he's trying too hard.
Chris gets to work with Robin, who could honestly be Adam's brother, though at least Adam takes his sunglasses off indoors. There's talk about nailing every line, even the low ones, and Robin has little to add. One wonders why he even bothered to show up.
