OK - My vote for the SEASON'S best SOB Story ....DRUM ROLL :arrow: :arrow: WAIT FOR IT :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: Goes to the TWINS separated @ a young age into separate foster families :) :!: :!: They got me on that one...otherwise I get through 'em :roll: :lol: :mrgreen: However I don't mind a little of their background such as age, where they're from, how they started in music etc.

AND to my point as demonstrated on Monday's show (I think) the judges LOVE the pain & suffering going into their songs (the female ones anyway). Me...I could live w/o 'em. EVERYBODY has a story to tell, but I don't begrudge them theirs. However what I HAVE noticed in life is those telling THEIRS, tend NOT to ask you YOURS.

Ok now sista'

I have last night's recorded and will try to watch tonight's afterwards on a mini binge ..... BUTT

is it just me ???? am I getting so blasé that I just expect greater talent each year
and even though this year's IS GREAT talent
I don't know, maybe the show concept has run its course ???

I would hate to think so because I love the music
BUTT maybe all the "entertainment" circus surrounding the talent detracts ?
Maybe I am just a grumpy old bugger :shock:

Wadya think ? :mrgreen:

THAT'S what I think :lol:

I have been really busy this Spring w/projects (for one, got my portable veggie garden planted earlier, yay!) that when I finally sit down to watch TV news (also recorded on DVR), I seem to fall asleep in 30 min. Been meaning to get on here for update, but I am behind on The Voice by a few weeks. It is a commitment to watch this show. All things do get a bit predictable over time, which is why I really like how they changed things up this season. My guess viewership down.THE BLOCK, though I have mixed feelings on that, understand why they did it, PLUS amped up the show a bit between judges. This show is about entertainment between judges in regards to the music. Yes, I read Christina A's criticism that is wasn't about the music, but it has to be more than that to attract & keep viewers.

So: I LIKE Kelly Clarkson; she did tone it down some. Her team - not my fav. I agreed w/the first 4 pics of the elimination of 12. Britton Buchanan, Team Alicia for male. Went to look up the name of the female I liked & see all the updates on who is eliminated to date :roll: Oh well...binge watching no fun either. Do that too. Maybe I'll skip to current, IDK.

I would like to see them involve their guest coaches more. Maybe have them in the audience after first session or involve in one song together: contestant, coach, guest coach trio. Always enjoy when the coaches sing together or with a contestant. There's still a lot they can do w/the show. They could cut down on the sob stories, repetitive stuff so public doesn't need to invest 3 hrs/wk watching.

Another thing w/me is that I'm not familiar w/a lot of the newer songs, so this season less of the oldies but goodies. Acoustics better this season. I do like that they let the public vote on the final 12.

A bunch of oldies songs this week, all pretty well done I think BUTT nobody should mess with "Imagine"

Britton and Bryn make a great duo ... I think they should hook up !!! :mrgreen:

I agree generally better stage sound and that band IS THE BEST of any live band I have ever heard on stage.
Surprised at a couple who went and kind of plus/minus on the other 2 who stayed

We shall see .....
