Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: June 21, 2011 The final two weeks of THE VOICE are here and the contestants are dropping like flies as another four people (actually five if you count the Thompson Sisters) were given the boot and the remaining eight performed. First the results … Team Cee Lo had raspy powerhouse singer Vicci Martinez get the audience save, while Cee Lo went for his brother from another mother Nakia as his save. BAM! I was totally dead-on from last week’s predictions. Team Adam had Javier Colon saved by the audience, while Casey Weston was […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VOICE – Season 1 – “Live Show, Quarter-Finals 2”

Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: June 14, 2011 I have so many mixed feelings about THE VOICE, that I’m still unsure whether I like how they’re trying to shake up the traditional AMERICAN IDOL formula or if they’re doing a disservice to the singers for not letting the show play out a little longer so audiences can get used to the contestants more. Either way, “Live Show, Quarter-Finals 2” is here and we not only saw four singers go home (two from Team Blake Shelton, two from Team Christina Aguilera), but Team Adam Levine and Team Cee Lo […]Read On »

Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: June 7, 2011 There are two things I’m taking away from THE VOICE as it enters into its first live show of Season 1 and the first part of the Quarter-Finals. 1) All four coaches are afraid to give any kind of constructive criticism to the contestants, just like the current incarnation of AMERICAN IDOL. They’re all about praising the contestants and giving them encouragement, even when they royally screwed up. Granted, it’s not enjoyable to see someone who is being given an opportunity like this to be ripped a new one all […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VOICE – Season 1- “Battles, Part 4”

Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 31, 2011 When THE VOICE premiered last month, it quickly proved to be one of NBC’s surprise breakout hits. It’s a reality music competition in the vein of AMERICAN IDOL, but the twist is, the “coaches” picked their favorites with the backs turned to the contestants. They were judging them on talent, not by how they looked. It was a great idea, and with strong coaches like Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine (of Maroon 5), it lended some fresh voices and some current pop validity to the […]Read On »

While speaking to the press at today’s NBC Summer Press Day 2011 in Pasadena, CA, THE VOICE executive producer Mark Burnett spoke about what makes this singing competition show different than AMERICAN IDOL and other shows of its ilk. The coaches, which include Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine (of Maroon 5), are a start. “We have four superstar music performers that are at the top of their game and that was really important to me,” says Burnett. “We wanted people who are at the top of their game currently, worldwide. I think it makes a […]Read On »

Cee Lo Green said “Forget You” to THE X FACTOR and instead chose to be a “Coach” (aka Judge) on NBC’s new reality singing competition THE VOICE premiering April 26. At today’s NBC Summer Press Day 2011 in Pasadena, CA, Green revealed exactly why. “I said ‘no’ to X FACTOR because quite honestly I was unfamiliar with the concept of X FACTOR,” says Green. “I knew the name. I knew the partners involved as an enterprise. I felt too that AMERICAN IDOL and these other entities had run their course. This was a course prior to the new casting [on […]Read On »
