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" ...

The Voice
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...

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...
