The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By djariya at 2012-02-05


This will be the thread of record for the remainder of The Voice's current season

Mondays: 2 hour performances

Tuesdays: 1 hour results


With American Idol also on Wednesdays and Thursdays, this is going to be a really brutal schedule to keep up with as a viewer.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Was Cee-Lo drunk or high during these 2 hours?

Jesus Christ, he was acting really weird, especially with the goofy James Brown wig.

I have to admit, after seeing how really strange Christina looked in some of the Battle Round audition episodes, she actually looked really good tonight. Very radiant and she looked nice in the rehearsal footage too.

Not going to comment on all 12 people who performed tonight.

Chris Mann was IMO the best of the night. Beautiful rendition of that song.

Jesse Campbell is one of my favorites to win this, but I thought his performance tonight was very lazy. He chose a boring and safe song and did nothing with it. Maybe his last high note kept it from flat out putting me to sleep.

Erin Willett also impressed me as well.

I like Jermaine Paul, but I didn't think Living on a Prayer was the right song for him. His voice sounded like it was going to crack several times. He doesn't have a strong enough Upper register like Bon Jovi to handle that song.

I thought Naia Kete sucked. I don't know what Blake was smoking. X-Tina wasn't impressed either.

Not a fan of Moses Stone and his rapping/singing

I think Jordis Unga has potential, but her rendition of "Alone" sounded out of tune to me and again she did more screaming than actual singing.


Since 6 people are getting eliminated tomorrow, my picks are:

Naia
Ashley
Moses
Charlotte
Jordis
Lindsey

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

I agree with your assessments. I didn't much care for Jesse's performance, but when they recapped at the end it did stand out above some of the others.

The judges get to make some saves tomorrow as well, correct?

I thought 4 people get eliminated tonight because the judges save 1 each.

Xtina's bitchiness towards Adam is really annoying.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Did anyone else find some of the performances needlessly theatrical? I think having a live band on stage is cool but some of the dancers were very distracting. The show is called The Voice, I think that's what the focus should be.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Can't complain too much - I think Charlotte Sometimes was done over twice. I was surprised she was the bottom 3 - especially over the young country girl - and then to get booted.

I do like the pace they are moving at to neck down who is left.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Only for Rockstar INXS, I would have wanted Jordis booted. Not liking what she did on this show so far at all.

Haven't seen all of results episode last night, but from the performance one, Cee Lo was a mess. Definitely drunk or high. Even Carson seemed to know so it seemed that he asked Cee Lo what we thought less than the others.

But damn did she look great last night! Best I've seen her look in a long long time. I didn't recognize it was her at first, I thought "Who is the new blonde girl!?". Wish she would drop the lbs though.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

I was surprised to see the one girl (Sarah?) go from Christina's group. She was pretty good both in the Monday performance and last night. I thought she would be one of the people that could win the thing. the girl that Christina kept did a really good job last night though

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Sera was terrible last night. It was as if she lost all her confidence being in the Bottom 3 and was unfocused. Ashley was the only one in that group who sang like she was fighting to stay.

I dislike all 3 girls in Blake's group. While I have to admit Jordis was the best, I can't stand her from "Rockstar: INXS" and have a bias against her.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Agree. Ashley did one hell of a job. She deserved to stick around.

Was not impressed at all by Blake's girls. All of them including Jordis gave very lackluster performances. But, I know they had to choose someone and Jordis was the best pick. I don't know what the hell is her deal. She just doesn't seem motivated.

And damn, X-Tina looked really good.

As for next week's shows. I think Adam has a superior team compared to Cee-Lo.

Care to elaborate? I vaguely remember Rockstar despite watching the entire season and was able to place Jordis's name, but I don't remember much about her at all.

Anyway, of all the performances, enjoyed Ashley's the most by far. Was surprised she was bottom three.

Agree 100%. First season watching and loved the blind auditions and the battle rounds. Hated the over-the-top masked-dancers and shirtless-models bullshit. Christina told Ashley that when you sign record deals you get lasers and huge video screens and dancers and shit, when most of the acts on that stage (I'm thinking of the one who looked really uncomfortable with all the make-up and staging) don't sing music suited that at all. This show is stripping some of these great singers of their really cool identities and trying to turn them into cookie-cutter "pop stars" (which shouldn't be surprising considering who the judges are).

Having said that, I can't wait for the Cee-Lo/Adam ep.

She looked like a refugee from Battlefield Earth, and screeched a lot in her singing, it got old quick at times.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

I'm surprised at the comments on Chris Mann, I thought he was in tune and all but his enunciation was terrible. I could hardly understand the words. I seem to recall Clay? doing it on American Idol better back in the day.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

quirky, unique female singer on the show = girl with a baby voice who may or may not sing in tune. That was like half of Blake's team and the Walk like the Egyptian girl.

I like that Christina couldn't look the ex-mousecateer in the eye when she was ripping him.

I had a major issue with that, too. She's hired to give her opinion, but if she truly believes that what she's saying is fair, she should be able to look him in the eye. I wonder if the show asked her to drum up some drama.

Still can't believe Adam picked Mathai. She just suck. Juliet was the best of the night though.

Blake is right on with his eye rolls at the elaborate staging. Shit was way too over-the-top at times and totally detracts from the actual singing. For example, love Tony Vincent, but my eyes kept straying to the "robots" that danced beneath his gigantic Orwellian podium. Ugh.

And WTF was Cee-Lo thinking with that "Walks Like an Egyptian" number? Easily one of the worst performances I've ever seen on a singing competition show.

America must be on crack. How the hell is Mathai still in this? I think Team Adam is the weakest of the four now. I see the winner coming from Team Christina or Cee Lo.

Re: The Voice -- The Live Performances Thread -- Mondays/Tuesdays (NBC)

Thank God Erin is off the show! That bitch cannot sing at all.

Her rendition of "Walking Like an Egyptian" was so corny.

at Blake ripping on the extraneous props/dancers etc. He is 100% right at how distracting they were.

I hate to say it, but I don't think there is any future career for Kim Yarbrough after this. The music business is so cutthroat and I don't think there is any room for someone her age. She's most likely bound to be a Lounge act or Hotel singer.

At least Tony Vincent's over the top performances will keep him employed on Broadway.

I thought Jamar was the highlight of the Monday show.

And I agree that Adam's team is looking pretty weak.

Oh and screw James Massone. Who the hell thinks that guy has a great sounding voice? It's so whiney and nasally...Ughhh. I fast forwarded past his performance.
