'The Voice': Nicholas David
Nicholas David talks about his coach Cee Lo.
The three finalists have been set on NBC’s The Voice. And yet again, the Top 4 topped the iTunes charts with three of  their songs coming in at No.1, No. 2 and No. 6 on the Top 10 overall singles chart during voting. Even at the beginning of Tuesday’s live broadcast, three of the four singers were still charting on iTunes Top 10.

So did the votes counted by iTunes give away the finalists prior to air time?

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Tuesday’s elimination episode.

The answer is YES. The first two finalists announced were No. 2 and No. 1 respectively on the charts with Team Blake contenders Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope making it through to the next rounds. The lone Team Cee Lo contestant announced to continue on to the finale was…Nicholas David. The soulful singer from Minnesota was charting at No. 7 on the singles chart when Tuesday’s episode ended.

Here are some highlights from the episode:

1. Team Blake takes on Of Monsters and Men. With Of Monsters and Men watching in the audience, Cassadee and Terry put on an awesome performance of the duo’s hit song, “Little Talks.” The Blake-ers sounded great together and had great chemistry on stage.

2. Season 2 alums back on the stage. Rae Lynn, Juliet Simms and Chris Mann all took the stage during the elimination episode. While I REALLY wish Tony Lucca would have taken the stage, they all did a good job in their own right. And hey, now I know what Christina Aguilera has been talking about regarding the “big things” Mann has been working on. Two albums and singing for the president? That’s pretty big.

3. Superbabies and hair umbrellas. The “desert island” bit was super cute, especially when Adam Levine said he’d make a super singing baby with Aguilera, and Cassadee said she’d hide under Nicholas’ beard.

4. Tony Lucca and Adam Levine. My dream team from Season 2 chatted in the skybox with Christina Milian about Lucca joining Levine’s 222 Records label. I’m still a little bitter about the Mickey Mouse Club alum not winning Season 2, and can’t wait to see what they put out together.

The Voice finale airs next Monday and Tuesday at 8 PM on NBC.
