Friends and relatives of of “The Voice’’ contestant James Massone were out at The Greatest Bar in Boston on Monday night to watch the Wakefield singer compete on a live episode of the show. The bar donated 10 percent of the night’s proceeds to Massone’s charity of choice, Lady Gaga’s Harvard-affiliated Born This Way Foundation. Massone, who has become a favorite of the show’s female audience, sang the Norah Jones hit “Don’t Know Why,’’ a tune suggested for him by his “Voice’’ coach, Cee Lo Green. Massone was to learn his fate on the show Tuesday night. We have high hopes for him. After all, “Voice’’ judge and country star Blake Shelton said, of Massone’s performance, “I almost threw my panties on the stage.’’
