The Voice 2013 finale kicks off tonight as the Final Three artists — Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee — take to the stage to sing for America’s votes one final time.

Each of the finalists will sing three different times tonight. One round will be songs they’re reprising from earlier in the season. Another will be a new song and finally, they’ll each sing a duet with their coach.

I’ll be live-blogging the finale and will be reviewing each performance as we go. I’ll also be sharing with you how to vote for your favorite artists. So be sure to follow along and feel free to share your thoughts in our comments section  below. Here we go! Happy Finale Night!

The Voice 2013 Final Three Performances

Round One: Blind Audition song reprise 

Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin, “Try.” I would never call this my favorite performance of hers so when I heard she’d be doing it again, I was sort of ehhhh. But this time around it was much more enjoyable and I realize it shows how versatile she actually is. So now I think this was a pretty good idea.

 Team Adam’s Will Champlin, “Not Over You.” Again, not the song I’d want to hear Will sing again, but I guess they had to be their blind audition song. But just like Tessanne, this time around the song was even better than the original. When Will first performed this song I never thought he’d make it past the battle rounds and here he is in the finale. He’s grown a lot and this version of that song is proof to that. I actually really liked it.

Team Christina’s Jacquie Lee, “Back To Black.” It’s clear that Jacquie is going to have the best night of the three. That doesn’t mean she’s going to win the show, but I think it’s a pretty solid indication. And this performance was even better than the first time she did it. It did get a little screechy though. For me anyway.

Round Two: Coach Duets

 Tessanne Chin and Adam Levine, “Let It Be.” Well that wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. Until they broke it down with that hit of reggae. Very nice. That was a lot of fun.

Jacquie Chin and Christina Aguilera, “We Remain.” I guess someone has decided that Jacquie should win the show because now she’s singing a song from the No. 1 movie in America. And it was a pretty solid duet too. I liked it a lot.

Will Champlin and Adam Levine, “Tiny Dancer.” I think this was the best of the duets. I think Will is fantastic and I think he’s not going to get the credit he deserves from tonight. So I’m going to make sure I give it where it’s do.

  • Performance grade: A+
  • How to Vote for Will: 1-855-864-2302

 Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin, “I Have Nothing.” I’ve heard this song about a trillion times on singing shows, but I think Tessanne is one of just a handful to actually nail the song. So that’s when it doesn’t feel like a song that has be overdone. I think her version was powerful and flawless.

Team Adam’s Will Champlin, “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You.” I at first wasn’t feeling this song choice, but once Will started singing, I just listened and stared at him as he sang it. I think this was one of Will’s best performances of the season.

  • Performance grade: A+

Team Christina’s Jacquie Lee, “And I Am Telling You.” I don’t think I’d ever pick this song for Jacquie because this is a huge song. Yes, Jacquie has a big voice, but not Jennifer Hudson big. So I didn’t love this performance. It was fine, but if you’ve heard Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Holliday sing it, then no one else can compare. Sorry.
