The Voice Season 5 Semifinal Performance Recap: Keep Calm and 'Carry On'

Dec 9 2013, 8:46pm CST | by TV Line

Can People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” (*With a Current Project to Promote/Not Named Idris Elba) be stopped?

That’s the question surrounding The Voice Season 5 semifinals, seeing how coach Adam Levine hasn’t lost a single contestant since Nov. 7 (aka Top 20 results night) (aka for freakin’ ever).

Of course, perhaps the even bigger question is whether membership on any coach’s team means anything at all. I mean, fans of NBC’s reality singing huggernaut — a typo, but that seems apt given all the positive vibrations, no? — have heard each member of the Top 5 perform 10 individual solo numbers over the last few months.

So shouldn’t it be more about the future potential pop stars than the already established ones? Should it be held against Jacquie Lee, for example, that her mentor Christina Aguilera turned her critique of James Wolpert into a mini rant about how she’s the one who should’ve been singing U2′s “With or Without You”? (Insert eye roll here.) Would anyone enamoured of Cole Vosbury’s gruff voice (and silky beard) withhold their vote to prevent Blake Shelton from nabbing his fourth consecutive win on the show? Is anyone more appreciative of Will Champlin, Tessanne Chin or the aforementioned Mr. Wolpert because Adam Levine (allegedly) cooked ‘em eggs for brekkie? (Side note: If Adam truly did rock the kitchen, how the heck did NBC’s camera crew fail to capture it? File under: #CookingIsSexy4Real.)

Forgive me. This recap has devolved into tragic hashtag territory. Who do I think I am? Mariah #Pow Carey? #Ugh #It’sBeenALongSeason #HelpMeIdolStartsInJustAMonth

OK, it’s clearly time for me to get to the hard work of assigning letter grades for tonight’s performances — just bear in mind I’ll be back overnight (after watching The Sing Off, of course) to update this URL with more detailed performance reviews. So do bookmark now, then come back in a few hours!

James Wolpert (Team Adam): U2′s “With or Without You” — Grade: B-
Will Champlin (Team Adam): fun.’s “Carry On” — Grade: A
Jacquie Lee (Team Xtina): Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel” — Grade: A-
Cole Vosbury (Team Blake): Billy Joel/Garth Brooks’ “Shameless” — Grade: B
Tessanne Chin (Team Adam): Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” — Grade: A-/>/>/>/>

Should Go Home: James, Cole
Will Go Home: Honestly, I’d just be guessing at this point./>

And with that, let me turn things over to you. What did you think of Top 5 performance night? Who absolutely must make the finale? Who will and should get booted? Take our poll below, then expand on your thoughts in the comments!
