After Monday night saw Team Blake and Team Pharrell perform for America's votes, Tuesday evening was the time for Teams Adam and Christina to put their best forward in hopes of being one of the three singers from each roster to make it through the first week of live playoffs.

Tonya Boyd-Cannon, "Take Me to the Pilot" (Team Adam): We all know Adam loves his Elton John, and it's evident in how he sings this song for Tonya before turning her loose on it. She's able to bring the "church," as he calls it, out of the track with her usual big energy. Everyone winds up standing by the time she's d...

The Voice's live playoffs have arrived, as the Top 20 sing this week to make the Top 12. Teams Blake and Pharrell were the first on the chopping block Monday, and NBC amped up the energy with a guest performance by Maroon 5, because you can never hear "Sugar" too many times.

Who did well and who's at risk of going home? Read on for our analysis of Team Blake vs. Team Pharrell and tune in Tuesday night to see who stands out from Teams Adam and Christina. America's votes will protect two singers on each team, while a third will be chosen by their coach.

Behati Prinsloo Wardrobe Whoops

April 3rd, 2015 12:30pm EDT
Behati Prinsloo
Behati Prinsloo a Victoria's Secret model (and wife of Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine) is used to having people stare at her almost naked body. But Prinsloo showed a little bit more of that body than she intended to at a red carpet event in Paris Tuesday evening.

Prinsloo was caught off-guard while attending a Tommy Hilfiger botique opening when a sudden gust of wind grabbed a hold of her short, red dress.

The back of her skirt was blown high and the assembled onlookers and photographers quickly realized that the model was not wearing underwear.

To her credit, Prinsloo laughed the inciden...

'The Voice' Blinds End And Battles Begin

March 10th, 2015 9:09am EDT
'The Voice' Recap: 'Blinds End And Battles Begin' - A Mixed Bag
NBC did a very strange thing with The Voice on Monday night - the show combined the end of its blind auditions round with the beginning of its battle rounds, the first time that has ever happened.

It made for a bit of a disjointed show, but basically the teams got completed and the first person got eliminated from season eight all in the same night. If you were a bit confused, we don't blame you. To keep your scorecard up to date, here's our recap.

The last full night of auditions on The Voice was Tuesday, and naturally it was a busy one. The superstar coaches reached the phase where they got pickier with their few remaining button pushes - except for Blake Shelton, who turned his chair for a whopping nine of the fifteen singers who crossed the stage.

Meanwhile, Pharrell found himself in dogfights with Adam and Christina that were markedly different from his earlier successes, and everyone added valuable artists to their teams. Who went where and who do we think has the early advantage? Read on.

The Top 8 Celebrity Weddings Of 2014
The top 8 celebrity weddings of 2014 all seemed to have one thing in common; most of the nuptials were not held on U.S. soil! Only a handful of stars tied the knot in the United States, with most opting for more elaborate settings such as France and Italy.

While it's always a game of chance when a celebrity ties the knot, lets hope that the following couples can make it last, at least until their first anniversary!

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, July 5

The lovebirds were a couple for several years and became the parents of children Maxwell and Ace before tying the knot. The bride as...

Adam Levine Wants 17 Kids
Adam Levine is ready to be a dad -- and he wants a really, really big family.

During an E! interview with the judges of "The Voice," Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani talked about kids.

Levine started off by saying, "Yeah, we're gonna do it at some point in the not-so-distant-slash-undisclosed-slash-I-really-have-no-idea-big-question-mark future. Is that ambiguous enough for you?"

As for how many children he wants, he deadpanned: "Like 17. Is that reasonable? I love kids so much, though. I love seeing kids on the set, too."

Team Pharrell: Ricky Manning (turned 2 chairs in blind auditions) vs. Brittany Butler (2 chairs), "On Broadway"

12 Celebrities Who've Never Gotten Enough Credit

October 11th, 2014 12:10pm EDT
Adam Levine
Celebrities usually get plenty of attention, but sometimes they don't get enough credit. Maybe you know them for one thing, but you don't know the other three things they do, too. Maybe you don't know them that well, because they've not gotten as much press as they should. There are a lot of good people who are underrated, and that doesn't just mean that they haven't been discovered yet.

We've compiled this list of twelve celebrities who've never gotten enough credit over their whole careers - they're not just underrated now, but they've pretty much always deserved a bit more respect. In n...

'The Voice' By The Numbers: Were Season 7 Auditions Easier?
Last night's episode of The Voice was a clip show, but that's not stopping us from offering a little insight. You see, we sort of felt things were getting a little easier this season, so we decided to do the math and find out. We compared statistics from season seven's blind auditions to those from a year ago - season five - and to those from the first season to set a Top 48, season two, way back in 2012. So is it easier to get on The Voice now than it was before? Which coach is the toughest to win over? Here's what we uncovered.

A note before we begin: obviously, we're comparing statistic...

Maroon 5 is in hot water over its new video for the single "Animals," which centers on frontman Adam Levine, who plays a stalker who becomes obsessed with a woman (played by real-life wife Behati Prinsloo) when she shows up at the butcher's shop where he works.

At one point, Levine and Prinsloo writhe around suggestively while getting soaked in blood and Levine spends quite a bit of of the music video hacking away at animal carcasses.

The song includes lyrics such as: Baby, I'm preying on you tonight/
Hunt you down eat you alive...Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent ...

Maroon 5 released a hot new video for their latest single, "Animals," on Tuesday, and the new promo features lead singer Adam Levine and his real-life wife Behati Prinsloo taking their bedroom chemistry to the small screen.

While Prinsloo looks her usual gorgeous, unattainable self, Levine plays the role of a stalker who becomes obsessed with her when she shows up at the butcher's shop where he works (and sadly attempts to cut ribs with a cleaver while wearing a hair net).

Becoming smitten by her beauty, the singer is seen in his apartment with black-and-white photos of her hanging everyw...

Maroon 5 'V' (Deluxe Edition) Review: Two Sides To One Successful Record

September 2nd, 2014 12:05pm EDT
V
As mentioned in our review of Maroon 5's Overexposed, this is a band that's constantly evolving. None of their records sounds quite like any of the others; whether or not that's a good thing depends on which incarnation you prefer. Fifth album V does its part to continue the group's transition into slickly produced pop-rock that began with Overexposed, yet what makes the record worth a listen are the few tracks where it breaks from effects and goes back to the band's true musicianship.

If you've heard the first three singles - "Maps," "It Was Always You" and "Animals" - you've got a good s...
