Former Alicia Keys backup singer and 'The Voice' victor Jermaine Paul is going back to his roots. The soulman is gearing up to record with Keys once more -- but in a much different capacity. No longer a backup singer but now a star in his own right, Paul revealed that the pair will do a duet!
Now that Jermaine Paul has won 'The Voice,' he gets to enjoy the rewards, which included a trip to Ellen DeGeneres' talk show to perform and chat about his experience on the singing competition. Paul told Ellen that he had no expectations on the night of the finale and actually thought he would finish fourth.
More drama surrounds 'The Voice,' and this time it's not about Christina Aguilera feuding or beefing with contestants, visitors or Adam Levine. A source is claiming that execs at the show are not psyched that Jermaine Paul won, simply because he is too similar to Season 1 winner Javier Colon.
Just about every contestant on 'The Voice' says they've "wanted to do this for as long as they can remember," but Jermaine Paul makes us really believe it. Before taking the stage to perform a show-winning (maybe?) rendition of 'I Believe I Can Fly,' the hopeful explained -- through tears -- just what it means to him to get this far in such a huge competition.
On tonight's (April 30) semi-finals of 'The Voice,' belter Jermaine Paul turned in an emotional and stirring rendition of Journey's classic ballad 'Open Arms.' Paul pulled us in, thanks to all those runs and fills, effectively making a rock song feel like it was originally written for a soulful R&B singer such as Paul. He, as Christina Aguilera so astutely asserted, "put the Jermaine on it."
Jermaine Paul was upstreamed to the semifinals on tonight's (April 17) elimination episode of 'The Voice' by the American voting audience, leaving Erin Willett and RaeLynn in the bottom for Team Blake Shelton. With the credits rolling, Shelton chose to save Willett, letting RaeLynn go ultimately because her choice of save song was a bit too safe.
Team Blake truly found their 'voice' against Team Christina on tonight's live episode of 'The Voice.' Judge favorite Jermaine Paul went up to bat with a lesser-known song -- at least for the younger viewers -- in hand, absolutely murdering Phil Collins' 'Against All Odds'... in a good way.
