The Internet is abuzz with the news that The Voice has announced its Season 5 finalists, but that's not all that's happening this week. We had several former competitors return to the show, a few more drop by just to say hello, and Blake Shelton crashed someone else's Christmas special again this year.

On Tuesday, four acts from The Voice's past two seasons came back to promote their new music, and we found out what they've been up to. Season 3 winner Cassadee Pope performed the next single from her recent album, and discovered that the album has gone gold.

Chris Mann Talks Concert Tour And Upcoming PBS Special

Chris Mann's rise in the music world can be described with two phrases: impressive and well-deserved. Since wowing audiences on Season 2 of NBC's The Voice in 2012, the Kansas native has been riding high; he signed a recording deal with Universal Republic, has released three records, had his own PBS special, and is in the middle of a nationwide headlining tour.

Yet what shouldn't be overlooked is that this windfall was very much earned. He might be known as 'Chris Mann from The Voice' to the world, but he's established himself as a legitimate artist who doesn't need the reality TV label. H...

'The Voice' Finalist Chris Mann Excels With New Album 'Roads'

11/1/2012 10:00am EDT
Chris Mann was to Season 2 of The Voice what Javier Colon was in Season 1: that artist who was so good you had to stop and listen every time he performed, no matter who else you were pulling for in the competition. He is truly gifted, with impressive power, fantastic clarity, and the ability to convey so much emotion in every song.

Just shy of six months after he placed fourth on The Voice, Chris has released his first post-show album, Roads. The disc sounds and feels like it was put together over much longer than that. This is a beautiful album that deserves the listener's full atte...
