The Voice news: Usher unleashes "Twisted" on TV

Deirdre still can't believe SheKnows pays her to do what she loves. She began telling stories before she could even write. Once someone gave her a pen, there was no prying it away; so a degree in journalism was the only thing that made s...

Usher's whirlwind day caught on Instagram

Last night on The Voice, Usher performed his new song, "Twisted." Beforehand, though, he spent the entire day Instagramming!

Ever wonder what a day in the life of Usher looks like? All of his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers found out yesterday! Usher live-blogged his entire day, sharing photos of rehearsals, workouts and even a quick joyride on his motorcycle. (Now we know what you drive, Usher, and we'll be looking for you on the streets!)

Why the day of openness? It was all a lead-up to one very special The Voice episode. The contestants were narrowed down and, oh yeah, Usher debuted his new single, "Twisted."

Take a look at some of the pictures!

The peek inside Usher's day did more than give us a chance to understand how he stays so freakin' ripped. It also let fans in on what he goes through each day to prep for our favorite show, The Voice. Last night's show was extra-special for Usher, though, as he didn't just take it easy in his big red swivel chair. He put on a show of his own when he debuted his brand new song "Twisted."

Here's the video of his awesome performance:

Oh, Usher! We've not been this proud of you since Confessions, when Lil Jon kept calling you "Ursher" — we blasted that entire album all fall long while rolling around Tallahassee, Florida. This week's performance was awesome, and that suit... amazing. Usher sure has grown up since the days of his baggy jeans, hat and "Nice & Slow." He's a grown man now, but he's still got the moves.

As for the rest of the show: We had a hard time recovering from our epic swoon-fest. But, we caught a little bit from the top five finalists.

  • The Swon Brothers killed it when they covered the very non-country "Danny's Song." It even got to Adam.
  • Danielle Bradbery's take on "Please Remember Me" was absolutely beautiful. Her version of "Who Am I" just couldn't compete with the original, though. And we still don't feel she has a strong stage presence.
  • Sasha Allen did "Bad Girls" and, honestly, we think it was her best performance of the season. She's found her niche.
  • Michelle Chamuel covered "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper. As Cyndi Lauper covers go, it was pretty fantastic (although, incredibly intense sometimes with her eyes and all the close-ups).
  • Amber Carrington's "Firework" was the least-annoying cover of a Katy Perry song ever. She needs to work on her breathing, though. There's breathy and then there's breathless.

All in all it was another awesome episode of The Voice, made even better by Usher's performance. Tonight they narrow it down to the top three. Our votes go to: Sasha Allen, The Swon Brothers and either Danielle Bradbery or Michelle Chamuel.
