Vicci Martinez Duets With Pat Monahan of Train on ‘The Voice’ Finale
Tonight on 'The Voice' finale, Vicci Martinez of Team Cee Lo was the first of the four finalists to take the stage. This may be Martinez's last performance we see, considering a winner will be announced tonight according to the American voters.
All four of the contestants are performing with some of their favorite artists on the final of 'The Voice,' and Martinez had the opportunity to perform with Pat Monahan of Train. The duo opened with the "hey, hey, hey" intro from 'Hey Soul Sister,' and then beautifully segued into Train's breakout hit, 'Drops of Jupiter.'
As Martinez said, Cee Lo has rubbed off on her, especially in the wardrobe department. The contestant stepped out wearing sparkly gold pants, a shiny blazer and a black bedazzled tank top, while her coach wore a sparkly track suit. Martinez and Monahan, who was dressed in classic black-and-white attire, took turns alternating verses in the emotional and sweet song. Monahan also hugged Martinez during the line "your best friend always sticking up for you."
After the performance, host Carson Daly asked for Cee Lo Green to say a few words about his trainee. "I would like to thank Pat because I know what a sensitive subject matter that song has for him," Cee Lo said. He went on to say it was an appropriate choice since it is a "sensitive moment for us too." He also told Vicci that they are "bonded for life" and that the American votes will not tear them apart if she is sent home. In true Cee Lo fashion, he then delivered an odd compliment, telling Martinez, "Nobody reminds me of you, so you are the first."
