Dia! Javier! Vicci! Beverly! We have our Voice final four. But were they the worthy winners of the latest round? And which one should and will take home the title next week? Jessica Shaw joins me on this week’s InsideTV Podcast to break down the finalists and their chances for victory. Plus, we grade the coaches on their performance this season and ask the question: Is Carson Daly the worst reality host ever? Then, we bring in critic Ken Tucker to sort out the best and worst of summer TV. What’s his favorite new show? What’s his least favorite new entry? And what returning show has him jazzed beyond belief? We also give our take on the return of True Blood. We’ve seen the first three episodes. Listen in to hear what we think.

    Wilfred and Louie were awesome sauce!!

  • Mike

    Javier will, Dia should.

    • Steph

      Dia sucks. She ruined Kanye West’s song 2 weeks ago and she murdered REM’s Losing My Religion. She should never have made it from the first round.

      • Sara

        Steph has awful taste, y’all!

      • Chris

        Dia sang Kanye’s song so much better than he ever could. As for Lossing my religion, She did A good job with that song too.

      • rocket22

        Your crazy…sucks? Really???

  • Frankie

    it’s all about beverly !!!! dia sounds like she has to barf every time she sings. javier looks like a dehydrated turtle. Vicci isn’t as great as most think she is.go beverly !!!!

    • Matt

      I second this!! GO BEVERLY!

      • TS

        I also agree, go Beverly!!!

    • Paris

      I don’t think you should be insulting a person’s look instead of voice like you did with javier. To be honest, Beverly is not the most beautiful woman but I don’t care because she has a great voice and so does javier.

  • Abel

    Dia should and will. Javier comes off very arrogant in my opinion.

    • bill hater

      I’ve been thinking this about Javier since day one, he has an amazing voice and he knows it. Still, he toned it down last time and listened to his coach and that was probably the best song he did on the show.

      • Chris

        Javier has had so many chance’s , Having been dropped A couple times from big labels. Dia is my favorite , But she has also already had recording deals and been dropped. So I think Vicci would be the best choice to market and sell cd’s. Beverly will be another Taylor Hicks {Grey haired idol winner} and play vegas and than maybe broadway. { She can be so annoying

    • TS

      I think Dia comes off arrogant.

      • NB

        I agree! Dia seems full of herself.

    • rocket22

      I agree 100%

  • Lizzie

    Anyone but Beverly. Make her actually S-I-N-G instead of hooting, hollering and flashing hand signs and see how good (or not) she is. Frenchie has a singing voice; Javier has a singing voice; Jared had a singing voice…Beverly, Xenia and the cowboy hats — not so much.

    • jessica

      javier has a scat voice. he doesn’t sing. he just makes noise that sounds somewhat (only somewhat) pleasant.

      • Steph

        He just over sings. I hate when people do that. He would sound a lot better if he wasnt’t trying to out sing everyone on the show and just sing the song the way it’s made.

    • Steph

      Girl you aint never lied. Beverly should have been booted off the first week too. She tries to be Janis Joplin but can really hold a candle to her. All she has done is scraem really loud BOOOOOO!

    • TS

      Beverly can sing, you have not heard her original songs. She has a great voice.


    Vicci should win the whole thing. Her voice and performance quality is so much higher than the others. SUCH A POWERFUL VOICE!!!!

    • anon

      she goes flat way too often. it’s annoying.

    • sternum

      i dont remember her being flat at all.

    • renee

      vicci deserves it, dia will win

      • TS

        Vicci’s voice is not really that strong!

    • Steve

      Vicci FTW!

  • curt

    I cannot stand Dia. Has everyone lost their hearing? UGH! Whatever crap song she sang at behind the piano was painful. It sounded like she was making it up as she went along like she was Tori Amos. I think she has a bright future playing at casinos. Maybe she can open for Taylor Hicks.

    • TicklePig

      The problem is you. If she were as bad as you say, she wouldn’t be the leading download.

      • TS

        Beverly was number 1 on the rock iTunes chart last week!

    • Steph

      Curt you are so right. I have no idea what people are listening to when that no talent hag is singing.

  • ignacio`

    I think everyone has a chance, base on Itunes sells, i say its between Dia and Javier.

    • TS

      Beverly was number one on the rock iTunes chart last week!

  • Louisiana Belle

    Also rooting for Vicci and worried that Javier will win. Vicci is passionate and powerful; Javier has a great voice, but nothing exciting.

  • Leo

    Beverly is the best there so I’ll go with Team Xtina

    • TS

      I agree 100%.

  • sternum

    all 4 are fantastic and deserve to be there, when was the last time that could be said about idol?

    • myvoice

      AGREED! Best of luck to all of them. It’s good any way it turns out!

  • sternum

    EW readers ALWAYS dislike the black singer on these talent shows lol ALWAYS it never fails.

    • Wayne

      Whatever…Frenchie could have been orange and I still wouldn’t have liked her.

      • xynthai

        so true, I’m glad beverly was picked instead of frenchie she was to shrill for me..

    • TS

      Get over it!!!

      • TS

        Hope Beverly wins it!!!

    • Steve

      not really, I rooted for Fantasia.

      Javier just goes on and on too much and in a way that jsut doesn’t grab me. He’s not bad though.

  • iggy

    Hoping to see Beverly win it.
    Can’t wait for Breaking Bad! Dalton, you choose to spend most of the time talking about “Fly” during the BB segment? Epic Fail.

  • Jen

    Yeah Carson Daly is awful. Plus the shape of his head looks like frankenstein.

    • genesis

      i totally agree about carson.. wow sensitive much? how are you feeling now that you got eliminated?? geez dude how do you think they’re feeling?

  • Nathan

    It will come down to Javier and Dia with Dia winning by a small margin, like them both but Dia will have a lot more sales potential what with her looks and all, soooooooo cute.
