Baltimore's Nelly's Echo made his second - and unfortunately last - appearance on NBC's “The Voice” Monday night, as contestants entered into the battle rounds and some, sadly, went home. TEAM CHRISTINA   Nelly's Echo - Nelson Emokpae, for us local fans - was pitted against Chicago's De'Borah, and NBC has garnered my wrath for unfairly pairing MY TWO FAVORITES AND FORCING ONE OF THEM TO LEAVE. Coach Christina Aguilera had the two taking on The Police's “Message in a Bottle,” and frankly, during rehearsals, De'Borah was a mess, while Nelson seemingly had the win already in hand.

I am going to have to apologize because I do not have a setlist and I don't really know the names of the songs but does that matter? ZZ Top is the longest running rock 'n' roll band with its original lineup in history and they certainly wouldn't fault me or you or anyone for not knowing what their songs were titled. I feel that I could guarantee that if you cornered guitarist Billy Gibbons and asked him very specific questions about very specific songs he would be bored out of his beard and possibly, politely, move on to another conversation.

And I need release.Instead, they're taking the seminal rock musical "Hair," which was never meant to be seen by middle-aged men who don't have any, back on the road.I challenge anyone to actually listen to six consecutive bars of "The Age of Aquarius" today without laughing.It's not just "Hair."This summer, they're holding a 25th anniversary concert on the hallowed grounds of Woodstock. Tickets are set at $150. Geritol is extra.

With three contestants left on "The Voice," each took the stage three times in the final night of performances Monday. The true highlight of the evening, however, came before the individual finalists even took the stage. To open the show, the coaches, finalists, past contestants from this season, and even Carson Daly and Christina Millian, came together to sing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," holding placards of the names and ages of the victims of Friday's Connecticut school shooting.

Finally, finally, finally, after almost TWO MONTHS, we reach the live shows of "The Voice," and for the first time this season, the power is in the hands of the voting audience. Wait, there's another election going on this week, right? Maybe that's important, too? (Hint: YES. GO VOTE NOW, AMERICA.) But again, this is a safe space, free of politics and devoted solely to “The Voice.” So here's how things work now: Four teams. Five people on each team. After the live playoffs (Monday for Teams Adam and Blake, Wednesday for Teams Christina and Cee Lo)

It's been called "the worst period in rock history," yet music made between 1978 and 1983 just won't die. For proof, look at the summer concert schedule -- it seems like it's all from that era: Kiss, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Steely Dan, the Eagles, Heart and, of course, the mullet-rock of Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon. (Their "Arrowfest" arrives at Washington's MCI Center July 23.) Why won't these bands go away? What keeps audiences coming back to hear songs they've already heard millions of times?
