Wolpert in final six on 'The Voice'
James Wolpert, the former Carnegie Mellon University student and Shadyside Apple store employee, is now in the final six on NBC's “The Voice.”
He was saved by the audience vote on the Nov. 26 show. On Nov. 25, he performed Queen's “Somebody to Love.” Instead of his normal geek chic attire, he was clad in a black tux and surrounded by a bespectacled choir of Wolpert clones.
Celebrity judge CeeLo Green called it “one of the best performances ever in the history of ‘The Voice.' ”
This week's elimination left all three of Adam Levine's team — Wolpert, Will Champlin and Tessanne Chin — still in the competition, but none left from Green's team.
The next show is 8 p.m. Dec. 2, with eliminations on Dec. 3

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
