On the Scene at 'The Voice' semifinals: Cole Vosbury and James Wolpert say goodbye; plus, Cassadee Pope and the Swon Brothers

On Tuesday night, The Voice said goodbye to Cole Vosbury and James Wolpert before crowning season 5’s top three contestants. EW was on the scene at the live elimination show and got the chance to chat with the newly eliminated contestants right after the show wrapped.

Team Adam’s James Wolpert was the first of two contestants to be eliminated during the semifinals, and the Pittsburgh local said he wasn’t surprised. “I was super prepared for it, but it’s still painful when you’re up there and you have to say goodbye to everybody in the moment,” said Wolpert, who’s looking at being eliminated as “an opportunity to start looking toward the future.”

As for what’s next, it sounds as though Wolpert plans to hit the ground running now that his time on The Voice has come to an end. The singer said he already has “frameworks and very vague foundations” for his own original music. “I think the next goal is going to be to cut a record as soon as I can…and put that out into the universe and go on tour as soon as possible.”

Like Wolpert, Vosbury “just kind of sensed” that he would be going home this week. “Even though I was praying for a miracle, I knew my number was up today, so today was a different experience. I think me and James both were just kind of like, ‘Yeah, it’s us two. It’s going to be us two.’ We knew it all day long.”

'The Voice' winner Cassadee Pope talks her new CMT docuseries -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Whether you recognize the name Cassadee Pope from her one-time band, Hey Monday, or as the season 3 winner of The Voice, you’re about to get the opportunity to know her a lot better. On Oct. 4, CMT will premiere Cassadee Pope: Frame by Frame, a six-part docuseries that follows the Voice winner’s journey from reality-TV hit to full-time singer-songwriter, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the show.

“I was actually approached by CMT about it, and I have to admit, at first I didn’t want people to think that I just do reality shows now,” Pope says. “And then the more we got to talking about it the more I realized it wasn’t going to be like your everyday reality show. It’s raw, and it’s gritty, and it’s not super polished.”

In terms of a timeline, Team Blake’s Pope won The Voice in December of 2012, and the docuseries started filming the following March when she was wrapping up her first album, which is also titled Frame By Frame and will be available Oct. 8. The series kicks off during Pope’s radio tour and concludes after she finishes shooting her first music video, totaling about three months of her post-Voice life.

'The Voice' champ Cassadee Pope: Hear her new single and learn who she's really pulling for in season 4 -- VIDEO

Cassadee Pope, the pop-rock singer who embraced her country roots to win season 3 of The Voice for Team Blake, will be returning to The Voice stage on June 4 to debut her new single, “Wasting All These Tears.” But fans will have to wait until fall for Pope’s full not-yet-titled album, which she promises will give fans the same mix of country and rock that she delivered on the show.

“[Fans] can expect a mixture. I grew up singing country music. It’s always spoken to me; it’s always felt natural,” Pope says. “Then I had a band. I did the whole rock thing as a teenager. Now I’m merging both. It’s very relevant to country music now, there’s a lot of country-rock, country-pop going on. What you saw on the show, me covering ‘Cry’ and ‘Stupid Boy,’ that stuff is very similar to my original songs, so they can expect the same kind of vibe.”

And although Pope still keeps in touch with former coach Blake Shelton, she can’t promise that you’ll hear him on her album… but she’s working on it. “I would love that,” she says. “I do have a song that I think would be great for him to sing on and hopefully that will work out. I still have to record that myself, so there’s still time. Hopefully we’ll get him in the studio and he’ll sing a verse or something like that.”

For now, Pope is preparing to open for The Band Perry and Rascal Flatts on the Live and Loud tour, starting May 30 and lasting through October. She’s also teamed up with Outnumber Hunger to help feed those in need. And when she gets a spare moment, which isn’t often, she tunes in to season 4 of The Voice, where she remains loyal to Team Blake. “I’m officially The Swon Brothers’ fan,” she says. “They blew my mind. I love them, and if they won I’d be so excited. But I gotta pull for a girl again. Gotta make it balance. It was two guys; now it’s gotta be two girls. Danielle I think has a real good chance.”

Her advice to the contestants? “Keep doing what they’re doing. Obviously, people love it. Stay true to themselves. To pull something out of a hat at this point when things are going so well and people are loving what they’re doing is just not the best move.”

Catch The Voice on NBC June 4 at 9 p.m.when Pope stops by to perform “Wasting All These Tears,” which you can check out below: READ FULL STORY

'The Voice' winner Cassadee Pope talks Blake, her upcoming album, and dealing with haters

Ready for your mind to be blown? According to 23-year-old Cassadee Pope — newly crowned winner of NBC’s The Voice — the ever-eccentric Cee Lo Green is actually “really normal” in person. “You can sit down and have a conversation with him and it’s not weird,” she explained yesterday during a visit to EW’s offices in New York City. “He’s very intellectual.”

Cassadee’s insight about Cee Lo is much more surprising than her recent win, which seemed foretold as soon as her cover of Blake Shelton’s “Over You” shot to No. 1 on iTunes’s singles chart. While the singer says she never thought of herself as season 3′s frontrunner — “I knew that stuff can happen in this show and not be lasting” — she will admit that her iTunes sales made her “very optimistic” before Tuesday’s finale. And though Cassadee feels like her victory still hasn’t really sunk in, she also can’t wait to get back to the recording studio in January and start work on a debut album that combines pop, rock, and country — sort of like “an edgier Taylor Swift [record], not as country, with more mature lyrics and more challenging vocals and melodies.”

Intrigued? Read on for more about Cassadee’s time on the show, her relationship with mentor Blake Shelton — and her near miss with the Muppets.
