Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 8 Thread -- Premieres 2/23/15

Did we ever find out why the one contestant from Philly had to drop out/leave?

I think Joshua was the correct save. That said, he needs to change it up. All of the bottom 3 kept singing the same type of songs. Gotta mix it up!

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 8 Thread -- Premieres 2/23/15

Well, not surprised who won the show last night.

I think Sawyer got the young teen girl vote. At least it wasn't some vanilla country artist.

Would have preferred Meghan, but oh well.

Once again, I don't think Sawyer will amount to a star. None of the winners from the previous 7 seasons have a hit album. Maybe a few decent performing singles at best. Hell, I'm still waiting to hear about Jermaine Paul's debut album.

Another season, 28 episodes in the books. Geez, that's a lot.

I'm still going to watch it this Fall, but I'm leaning towards not doing anymore threads in the future. The interest just isn't there in this forum. I'm guessing this show is just too time consuming for most here. Finale week for those who didn't watch was 4 hours!!!

If you check itunes the morning after there is no reason to watch the results. I think Sawyer had the #2 and #4 song when I looked Tuesday morning. Meghan was at #5 and that was it for the multiplier.

I've stuck with it, but I usually only comment on these sorts of things if the thread is bumped.

That said, I think they are really overdoing it with this show. At two seasons a year, I'm honestly shocked the bottom hasn't dropped out yet. I still enjoy the early rounds, but the show becomes so anticlimactic a few weeks into the live shows when it is made clear who the favorites are. The fanbases become so entrenched and the coaches never have a bad thing to say, so there's no drama at that point. Even the performances and song choices lack any real element of risk beyond the first few weeks of voting. I'm pretty sure the iTunes income source is the reason for this... safe choices are safer bets for singles.

As cheesy as the themes got on Idol, I'm starting to wish The Voice would throw more curveballs at the contestants like that to force them out of their comfort zones.

I really liked the CCR stuff with JC Fogarty. But I really only like the start of the show. Almost all the songs they do sound identical to me.

I mainly watch this show as background while I am doing work. I rarely even learn the contestant's names.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 8 Thread -- Premieres 2/23/15

I really really enjoyed Josh and Adam duo, Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes. Such a great vibe to that song, and they looked liked they had a blast doing it.

I'm happy with the Sawyer win. Think he is a unique talent. His song choices were all old school songs that I was familiar with and had a true connection with. Old Man, by Neil Young. That was pretty cool.

Sad update: Anthony Riley killed himself on Tuesday.

It says in the story when he dropped out he entered a rehab for substance abuse

The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15




GWEN STEFANI RETURNS TO JOIN COACHES ADAM LEVINE, BLAKE SHELTON AND PHARRELL WILLIAMS IN THE NINTH SEASON OF NBC'S EMMY AWARD-WINNING HIT MUSICAL COMPETITION SERIES- In the season premiere, the "blind auditions" are held in front of the celebrity panel of musician coaches, including Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, who each pick vocalists for their individual teams. The strongest vocalists from across the country compete to be selected by one of the coaches and fight for a chance to win the title of being named "The Voice." Carson Daly ("TODAY Show") hosts. TV-PG L

X-Tina is taking the season off. Gwen is back.

2 hours episodes twice a week at least for the next month. I know most here who sort of still watch this show are burnt out of it and the 2 hour running times are brutal.

There are rumors on the internet that Blake and Gwen have started secretly seeing each other since both are now divorced.

Loved the fat kid Jordan who looks like Sylvester from Scorpion.

He really shocked me. That voice was so different and didn't match his appearance at all.

Felt bad for the young girl Alyssa who's step Dad died. She's really pretty, but she chose a pretty hard song for her age.

The last guy Barrett was cool. I liked his swagger and confidence. Perfect fit for Blake.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15

Loved James Dupree, the last country guy who chose Adam. Great tone to his voice. Think he can do a lot with it. A lot of good voices so far. Too bad after this show is over, we will never hear of any of them again.

Did this series ever fix those stupid battle rounds to be less, uh, stupid?

I liked James too. Very smooth tone.

However, it was so telegraphed that he was going to pick Adam. Especially after Adam got shut out by the last 2 contestants who he begged for.

Blake is way too country heavy on his team.

Not surprised they passed on the usher Brian. He had some pitch problems and it was a bad choice for him to take that Bruno Mars song.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15

Last guy of night 2 and blue haired chick, also from night 2, have been the standouts so far who I think can make it pretty far.

We'll probably watch most of the season, but the show does need a break or a chang in format. We watched some audition rounds from UK xfactor on axis tv as the summer was winding down and it was a nice change of pace. Sure some things are still telegraphed, but a lot less so than the Voice. Example: "coach x has been struggling to get team members all night long." Oh look, coach x got the next contestant!

I was when Adam told the twins at the end that song selection was a strength of his.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15

Monday's show had some pretty good contestants.

Liked:

Manny Cabo, who sang Here I go again

Lyndsey Elm, who sang Lips are Movin

Chris Crump, who sang Thinking out Loud was actually not bad either.


So far the 3 shows I've watched have been pretty enjoyable.


Edit: The last couple that performed Jubal and Amanda was pretty good. That marriage proposal was a surprise.

The young blonde singer who went to Blake, Manny Cabo, and the last pair from Tuesday's show have all stood out to me. No front runner is obvious yet, but there are some strong contestants.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15

No real stand out this season.

The girl from Alabama, who I liked a lot less hearing her performance again this morning, made a big mistake going with Adam. She seems like the front runner to make it to around the top 5 before Adam gives her a terrible song and she is eliminated.

I am sure team Gwen has to love seeing who the other three teams have as advisors and they get Selena Gomez.

Re: The Voice (NBC) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 9/21/15

Last nights show was a 2 hour clip show, so you all can delete that if it's sitting on your DVR unwatched.

I really liked the last girl Sydney from Monday's show. Very mature vocals for her age.

I also liked Amy Vachal. I think she's part Asian. But I think she won't make it past the battle rounds.

The way they were all gushing over her I think she'll make it to the live shows, but I can't see her making it very far past that and certainly not winning it like the other coaches were saying.

Anybody know what happened to that guy from a few seasons back who was picked, but dropped out before the battles? I think he was from Philadelphia.

Gwen looked really hot on Monday's show.




How the fuck does Gavin Rossdale cheat on her with the fucking Nanny? Idiot. Good for Blake Shelton for hooking up with her.


Ugh, the Adele Hello cover from Monday's show by Regina Love was pretty bad. Very rough
