"After the blind auditions, the battle rounds, the knockout rounds and the live shows, The Voice will finally name its Season 3 winner this Thursday night on AXN.
"But before finalists Nicholas David, Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott take the stage on the last performance show, the show has lined up several superstar guest performances you surely wouldn’t want to miss.
"The final round just got a little bit sweeter with the finale’s star-studded guest performances: Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, and The Killers will all hit the Voice stage during the live two-hour finale.
"The Voice Top 3 were revealed last week as Terry McDermott and Cassadee Pope of Team Blake were selected by fan votes to move along with Team Cee Lo's Nicholas David.
"Another member of Team Cee Lo, Trevin Hunte, was eliminated.
"Cassadee and Terry kicked off the performances of the night with a duet of the Of Monsters and Men hit "Little Talks," while Trevin and Nicholas performed the last song of the night. The final two members of Team Cee Lo sang Mariah Carey's classic ballad "Hero" just before Trevin was eliminated.
"Three Voice alumni also took the stage last week: Former Team Cee Lo member Juliet Simms performed her single "Wild Child," looking more like Ashlee Simpson than ever and seemingly inspired by Miley Cyrus' "Can't Be Tamed" music video. Country singer RaeLynn, a former member of Team Blake, also performed her new single "Boyfriend," with her signature flower in her hair. Christina Aguilera's Season 2 finalist Chris Mann sang his song "Roads" and Adam Levine revealed that Christina's least favorite Voice contestant ever and his Season 2 finalist Tony Lucca is on his record label now.
"Catch the final 2 episodes (1.5 hour final performance show and 2 hour season finale) of The Voice Season 3 on AXN within 48 hours of U.S. telecast, December 19 and 20 (Wed/Thu) at 8:10 PM."
