It's all singing all the time as the winners of "The Voice" and "X Factor" will be crowned this week on CTV.

The remaining top 3 singers on “The Voice,”  Cassadee Pope, Terry McDermott and Nicholas David, have dominated all season long, with their songs making the Top 10 on iTunes.

The ever-likeable, Nicholas David, (the remaining contestant from Team CeeLo ) has been offering up his unique take on often over done songs since his heartfelt rendition of "Stand by Me" earlier this season.

But this Minnesota native is up against Team Blake’s Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott. Terry’s been singing classic rock tunes, and blew everyone out of the water with his cover of the Beatles’ “Let It Be.”

Pop-rock queen, Cassadee, has been a solid front runner, especially after she expanded her Avril Lavigne-inspired tone to take on the country genre, showcasing her versatility. Will she be the very first female winner of the show?

In the “X Factor,” front-runners Carly Rose Sonenclar and Tate Stevens have always been Top 2 in voting, and they’ll go up against each other one final time this week, along with Simon Cowell’s girl group Fifth Harmony.

These three acts will have two performances on Wednesday night before the $5 million prize is awarded to one of them on Thursday.

Now that’s a fantastic early Christmas present!

“The Voice’s” performance show is Monday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV with the finale on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV. “X Factor’s” performance show airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV with the finale Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.
