Benji must push away the screams of those who enjoy his screams
The battle rounds continued on The Voice, and ex-racecar driver Benji was up against Sam James with "You Give Love a Bad Name." Coach Adam reminded everyone about how Benji is a screamer, but he also has "a clean, pristine-sounding voice" that could take the win as long as he doesn't distract from it -- so Adam tells Benji to limit himself to just one scream. In the interview before taking the stage, Benji said, "If I don't win tonight, this might be it." And after eleven years of making music, he ignored his coach's advice and tossed several screams into the performance. Hmm.
Just can't help those scream-y screams
Blake liked that Benji is willing to explore and chose him as the stronger of the two. Christina said that she's "down for some yellin' and screamin'" and also picked Benji, as did CeeLo. Although Adam told Benji that he has one of the best screams he's ever heard, comparing him to "a bat flying straight outta hell" and stressing how hard it is to achieve that, Adam also expressed concern about Benji's lack of control between his lower register and his screams, and he went against his fellow judges' advice and chose Sam. Unfortunately, no one liked Benji quite enough to use a steal. Good luck, man...and maybe in the future, heed the advice of those trying to help you?
Even though I had to drop The Walking Dead because it was driving me so crazy (how can a show about zombies be so very boring?), I was really happy to see Steven Yeun on Conan. He was as fun and likable as ever with his stories about his Twitter avatar and his lonely, comic book-filled life. I am certain that the tales of his single status are highly overrated because he is great.
"I can't believe I'm single either, Conan. It's crazy."
Conan is confused by the thought of boob burns
