Check out a couple of the musical highlights of Monday night’s final live performance episode of “The Voice” Season 4: Coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Usher and Shakira performing “With a Little Help From My Friends” and the top 16 singing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ “Home.”

Muskogee’s The Swon Brothers and 16-year-old Texan Danielle Bradbery, both representing Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton’s team, and indie pop-rocker Michelle Chamuel, who is competing on Team Usher, are the three finalists vying for the grand prize of a recording contract. Since one of Shelton’s finalists won the past two seasons, Team Blake is working on a three-peat on “The Voice.”

The winner will be revealed during the live two-hour season finale airing from 8 to 10 tonight.

Check out my live blog of Monday night’s performance episode here.

As previously reported, Zach and Colton Swon performed on Monday the Eagles’ standard “I Can’t Tell You Why,” with Zach on piano, Colton on guitar and their sibling harmonies in the forefront. It also showcased their falsetto singing, something we hadn’t really seen them do before, and they nailed that aspect of the song.

For their coach duet, the Swon siblings teamed with Shelton to perform Brad Paisley’s smash “Celebrity,” which showed off not only their musical abilities but the ironic sense of humor the Oklahomans share. After all, you’ve got to have a sense of irony to perform a song mocking reality show while on a reality show.

“I Can’t Tell You Why” and “Celebrity” are the two songs from Monday night’s episode for which iTunes downloads count for votes. You’ve still got almost an hour to vote by downloading, calling toll-free, texting or online balloting. For complete voting instructions, go to
