OK...I'm all caught up on the THREE programs this week :roll: Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer :( but...
Not seeing the talent as in the last two or three seasons so far AND..
Me thinks the producers told the judges to "amp it up" w/the Gwen/Blake thing, AND if you notice, even Alicia is kickin it up a notch or two, it appears. I like some tomfoolery between the judges, however it wasn't this much about the judges last year, even w/young Miley. Must be having rating issues as it seems the focus is more on the judges.
Another thought was that this could be called The Voice Teen Talent. Lots of young singers trying out this season. Guess that's the time to do it.
One thing they didn't do last season was have all the judges perform together, which I enjoy.
Now, I c/b jumping the gun here, but given the fact that I can't sing or put two notes together doesn't mean I can't critique as a viewer. I'm not President either :mrgreen:
We'll see...hope things pick up in the next couple of shows as far as talent & Adam, Gwen & Blake tone it down a notch.
What I will say is Boy, can that Alicia sing!
Any other Voice viewers out there? Chime in!

Basically agree BS

Alicia is dope !
the "barbie" and cowboy stuff can get stuffed :twisted: How long until Miley is back :(
still got some more folks to hear so waiting on "quality" judgement issues .. BUTT ...
so far with the youngens I think I am digging possibly more potential ... and better things to come ?
like every year, the few who have gone home .. IMO ... were possibly better than a couple who stayed.
Could we be up for seeing some returnees from folks who left in past years ??????
There are a bunch I would love to hear again ... so who knows ??

Rant !
being bitchy again : enuff of the heart strings crying stuff .. just sing your ass off !!!!
ALL my friends here probably have more to "cry" about than just about ANY Voice story over the years .. and yet WE keep pushin' ON !
just sing people .. it IS the Voice ! ... not "The Whine"
end Rant !


Yes I know .. just me .... :twisted:

for those who missed : seems Yahoo has Episodes 1,2,3 HERE inside the US
... unless you can work up a proxy/VPN from wherever you may be ... :shock:
now who would do THAT ???? :oops:
:mrgreen:
Cheers all

Yeah, the Gwen/Blake thing was cute for about 0.2 seconds. I've always liked the banter between the judges, but it feels more gimmicky this season. I guess it's hard to stay 'fresh' for so long.

I'm reserving judgment on the talent this season as it's still early on, but I don't see a clear frontrunner yet.

But can I just say that I wish I looked as young as Gwen does? Her look for the blinds is gorgeous and I can't believe that she's 47. Jmo.

Enjoy the season!

Waiting for tonight's to record and will playback LATER with no commercials :twisted:

Last night's is bringing me close to :
no more Barbie and Blake
no more coaches "sparring" nonsense
no more sending home folks who are seemingly better than some who stayed !!!!!
( YEAH I am still pissed about Manny Cabo !!!! :twisted: )

just ME ????? ...
NOT as compelling as past seasons
NOT any clear evidence of any real gamechangers

love the real talent
starting to lose respect for the "showtime" bullshit

just me ??? ............

peeps ??? .........

Don't think I can take one more day of "Barbie" in THAT dress :roll:
If Manny Cabo were to come back this season he would probably blow everybody else out of the water so far.
If Alicia says one more time: "You're voice is beautiful, but didn't push the button b/c ....."
The judges are really going to have to work to develop some of the available choices this season IMO & I suspect it w/b among the teens for the most potential.

I'm all caught up now. Never was a faithful viewer in the past, but I'll watch this season. The judges banter is irritating, enough with the barcode and hamburgler jokes, and judge banter takes up too much of the show IMO. Also tired of hearing Gwen giggle at everything Blake says/does.
Looking forward to seeing more from these kids though.

If Blake Shelton gets on one knee for Gwen Stefani in front of a live studio audience, we might just lose it.

That would make more than one of US ! :twisted: ... AND not in a good way ... Image

Now I'll have to start FastFWD past everything BUTT the actual performances.

HEY maybe not such a bad idea :mrgreen:

Actually I FF through most of Wed recap show. Hopefully the Gwen/Blake thing will tame down & if he does any proposing it will be @ season's end! It's supposed to be a family show (8:00) pm here & I really don't care where Blake is sleeping (Adam). Checked out The Voice FB page. About 90/10 pro/con comments to the judges & Gwen/Blake thing. Did learn that Sundance is touring w/Blake. Admit to not watching the finale last season as I saw spoiler alert on MSN while logging onto my puter.

Thought last nights show was good. Can't get past Gwen's costumes, wigs, but @ least we are now about the contestants. I do have my eye on someone.

Impressed with Celine Dion and John Legend as coaches ! .... and the band as always.

A couple went who shoulda' stayed but still have to replay one DVR session, so no clear front runners for me
think the best is still to come.

There is some really nice talent there. I enjoyed the song selections they picked. There were a couple choices the judges made where I was expecting them to go the other way. Looking forward to see what next week brings.
