Brittany's 'The Voice' Blog: Catching Up With...Beverly McClellan

October 4th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Beverly McClellan
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: I shine the spotlight on Beverly McClellan, the finalist for Team Christina who exemplified what the series was all about - not just being yourself, but being proud of yourself.

She was an example of the blind auditions in action; she didn't look the part of a conventional music star, but she had the talent and the personality. After catching the eye of Christina Aguilera, Beverly let her self-confidence guide her throughout the competition. She was being herself, loud and proud and without fear.

Her rendition of The Who's "Baba O'Riley" ...

Two and a half months later, my journey with The Voice has come to an end. I'm sad to walk away, but I'm also overjoyed (and grateful) to have gone out on top.

Everyone wants to finish on a high note, and this show certainly did that, for the most part. The final performance show saw the four finalists duet with their coaches - a move which signified their having flourished over the course of the competition and become equals. Dia Frampton and Blake Shelton were certainly having a great time performing Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down," complete with Blues Brothers-esque black suits a...

Kelly Clarkson Attacks Ryan Tedder In New Song Lyrics

Kelly Clarkson
Kelly Clarkson appears to have lashed out at songwriter Ryan Tedder and music executives at her label RCA/Sony Music in a new song after they convinced her to record a copy of Beyonce's hit "Halo."

The pop star was left red faced when critics accused her of "ripping off" Beyonce's hit, and claimed songwriter/producer Tedder sent her the track that became Halo without telling her he'd already offered it to the R&B singer.

Clarkson tried to stop Sony Music bosses from releasing her version, "Already Gone," as a single - but failed. So, the "American Idol" winner altered the arrangement hers...

A testimony to the strength of the songs on James Morrison's debut album Undiscovered is that it yielded no fewer than five singles - "You Give Me Something," "Wonderful World," "The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore," "Undiscovered" and "One Last Chance."
