“The Voice” Pays An Emotional Tribute to Newtown Victims (Video)

Monday night was a big evening for “The Voice,” which is winding down its third season, but before the singing competition could resume, the four coaches and season three contestants opened the show with a different kind of performance.

They all took the stage at the top of the show to sing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in remembrance of the victims of last Friday’s school shootings in Newtown, Conn. Each singer held up a card with a victim’s name and age on it as they sang, standing behind a line of candles.

It was a solemn, dignified moment that echoed “Saturday Night Live’s” cold open over the weekend, when the sketch series began with the New York City Children’s Chorus’ performance of “Silent Night.”

And then, as it inevitably does, the show went on.
