Levine then proceeded to remove his button-up shirt to reveal a t-shirt that read, “Team Xtina”.Lucca and the rest of the finalists performed a song of their choice, meant as a tribute to their coach, as well as a duet with their coach for their final performances before the season’s winner is announced tomorrow night.Millions of people have spent billions of dollars to watch this spectacle -- settled until April 17 on South Salina Street -- that is rooted in the phantom's obsession with the beautiful chorus-girl-turned-star-attraction, Christine Daae, and his love for her that cannot be.While he has much to offer in terms of talent and intellect and wit, the phantom does have that face (the one that landed him in the cage of a traveling fair), plus the distorted heart that goes with it.PHOTOS: ' The Voice' Teams: Season 2's Performers Paul finished up his performances with his tribute to Shelton, singing “God Gave Me You,” and then teamed up with Shelton for a rambunctious version of “Soul Man.” Chris Mann brought tears to his coach Aguilera’s eyes with his performance of Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” which also featured a gospel choir.Cee Lo Green praised his performance saying, “You are by far one of the most incomparable voices I’ve ever heard.
Sip on the signature bubbly as you revel in the evening’s festivities; delight in a three-course dinner complete with champagne flair; fall in love with Guest of Honor, Wichita's own Chris Mann, as he serenades those in attendance with selections as The Phantom from Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera," a part he made famous with 700 performances nationwide; Opera Ball committee is taking that to heart.
But he has nevertheless returned to Syracuse for a third visit, this time for 12 days, and has been saluted with both teary eyes and standing ovations at the Landmark Theatre. Officially, it's Erik, but after all this time -- and it's been 30 years since Andrew Lloyd Webber introduced him in London's West End in 1986 -- we've pretty much only known him as "a freak of nature, more monster than man, deformed from birth." And so we've called him "The Phantom of the Opera," and left it at that.
