On the night Tony covers Britney Spears' '...Baby One More Time', Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine send home James Massone and Pip respectively.
Tony Lucca wasn't shy to embrace his "Mouse House Club" roots on "The Voice" second live quarter-final performances show after being dissed by fellow former Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera. He sang Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" in response to her comment that he was "one-dimensional" and possibly using his tie with another ex-Mouseketeer Justin Timberlake to create a popularity contest.
X-tina, not showing any sign of being mad with Tony's fun way to address her criticism, said, "Let's get Britney Spears out here on the stage and let's do a real Mickey Mouse Club reunion. And get Justin, too." Blake Shelton also liked the Adam Levine protege's cover of the pop song as saying, "That pisses me off because that was really smart."
Tony's creative performance saved him from the chopping block as he managed to survive the instant elimination made by coach Adam. The Maroon 5 frontman, instead, chose to axe Pip who delivered a rendition of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know".
"Pip, I gotta let you go, man," Adam said. Looking a bit shocked, the 19-year-old aspiring singer replied, "It's been an amazing experience." Tony, along with Mathai and Katrina Parker who also performed that night, would have to wait the result of audience's vote to learn his fate on the show.
Meanwhile, Cee-Lo Green made instant elimination by sending home James Massone despite praising his "so genuine, so sweet, so soft-spoken" voice. "I gotta let my little brother James go," the Gnarls Barkley member announced as reading a little speech from his cell phone.
Jamar Rogers who showed a gritty performance of Bon Jovi's "It's My Life", Cheesa who delivered a chilling rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing", as well as Juliet Simms who sang Aerosmith's "Cryin' ", were the other members of team Cee-Lo who took the stage on Monday, April 23.
