It's a busy week for the four finalists, their superstar coaches and The Voice team as we gear up for the LIVE FINALS on Saturday. As well as rehearsing, Christina, Sally, Jermain and Jamie will be appearing on various other TV shows throughout week...

On Wednesday they will be singing live on The One Show...

On Thursday they will be up early to appear on BBC Breakfast on BBC1...

On Friday the acts will be up early again (!) and chatting with Nick Grimshaw AND their coaches on Grimmy's breakfast show on Radio 1...

We hope they manage to fit in some early nights!

PLUS Ricky will be with Chris Evans on his breakfast show on BBC Radio 2, chatting about his experience of being a coach on The Voice and also performing with his band, The Kaiser Chiefs.

There’s a Mirror poll that puts Sally ahead but annoyingly it asks “Who do you think will win The Voice?” and not “Who do you want…”

Christina gets a lot of internet hate but that’s irrelevant because she also scores very highly on the positive side as well, as per likes and the polls above. The little One Show snippet reminded me that she has the best voice.

Jermaine’s One Show clip was also impressive and he has some momentum on net comments etc. I missed Jamie's bit which was at the beginning

Last night’s “Louder” told us that Sally will be back to her comfort zone on Saturday, after last Saturday’s travesty. Hopefully she’ll use her guitar for Both Sides Now. It looks like a simple guitar piece.

“Louder” also told us that the Voice judges are allowed to do the best for their acts and are not instructed to undermine them as in XF. And I don’t think the Voice use undermining staging, I’ve not noticed it anyway.

I think for every person that has a go at Christina online (and there's no negative vote) there are a hundred who find her quite an inspirational young girl. And they have 4 free votes each online.

The standard of the final 4 is higher than recent XFs. As a Sally backer I'm largely relying on her back story. It's not nearly as clear cut as with Sam Bailey on vocal quality alone. There's a good chance they'll show Sally's two sympathetic sons in the audience, she'll use her guitar with Both Sides Now, and say how it reminds her of her dead husband, and her Walking In Memphis duet will be the most sympathetic. (And I'm hoping she doesn't make Dear Darling "her own".)

I think H is spot on....Christina divides opinion sharply going by online indicators.The question is,is the pro brigade enough to get her the win?

In a 4 way final,it may be as little as 35% of the vote is required for victory,especially as all the contestants are likely to receive a fair size proportion of vote.Is Christina's marmite support equal or more than 35/65 ? That's the conundrum IMO.

Christina is 18% v 82% marmite. H2H with Sally its 80v20 Sally. Christina's only hope seems to be the online voting.

Because she seems to have more support on twitter which usually means jack sh1t but its possible the twitterati might actually get off their arses and use their four votes. Just can't see the GBP picking up the phone for her in an ygreat numbers. But like you say in a pretty close four way who knows. I still think Sally who I have ahead has the most motivated vote. The intelligentsia view is lets pick a winner with some "potential" but voting is a visceral not an intellectual thing imo.

Nope, I don't agree with that George. A typical Christina FB post will have a comment "She is full of herself" getting 35 thumbs up but the post itself will get 2,000 likes. It's the people who like her that count. And there are a lot of them.

She's pulled clear on the TM poll,and virtually drawn level on the DS poll and her YouTube views from last weekend are not bettered.The online support is certainly there,although equally there seems to be quite a lot of animosity towards her going by Facebook comments and DS.

Seems like viewers fall into one of two camps.....Best vocalist in the competition,or screaming,shouting Bighead.The biggest thing in her favour perhaps is the spread of support for her 3 rivals,even allowing for Sally being more popular perhaps than the two boys.She would certainly lose a H2H against all three rivals.

Couple of points:

Being pretty much all-in on Sally, I`ve been closely watching for signs of her being TCO. When there were no clear signs, I lazily assumed Christina was TCO. Yesterday, fll suggested not, and I realised he was right, there is no obvious TCO

I`d be amazed if less than 90% of the voters (as opposed to viewers),  know Sally`s song.

Re Christina,I think she's similar in singing style to Leanne Mitchell,but far better.Against that she's far less likable than Leanne,and faces far stiffer competition than Leanne did in the final.

The bare facts are she leads the latest Tellymix poll quite easily,having never been in the lead before,and leads YouTube views of the latest songs.Whilst we all have differing opinions of how relevant these measures are,I do find it strange that some on here are happy to rule her out of the running.It may turn out that they prove to be correct,and she doesn't win (indeed it's more likely she loses rather than wins) but to write her chances off because of a singing style that isn't liked by the majority on here (me included) and a questionable personality is IMO dangerous,given other measures are telling us she's a viable contender.
