Looks like we're in for a great season. Shakira and Usher seem to fit right in, and the talent looks awesome, at least through the first 3 nights. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season.

What a difference the coaches make on these shows. Just my .02.

Couldn't agree more. I'll miss Cee Lo, but I really am liking Usher and Shakira. The Voice is far and away our favorite "talent" show on TV right now.

I had no idea Shakira was white until watching that youtube video.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

She's Columbian and gorgeous.

Edited to say she is from Columbia and of Lebanese, Spanish & Italian descent.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I had to laugh... my Mom stated last week after watching "The Voice" that she never realized how pretty Shakira was. Yeah, Mom, yeah she is... :lol:

The Voice's four judges enjoy what the AI judges don't ... chemistry.

I'll miss Cee Lo and Christina, but given the replacements, I'm almost hoping they delay their return.

I'll continue to hold out hope that Christina decides to STAY gone...

I like Cee Lo, and I like Usher. I'm fine either way with them.

On a personal level, I read a while back that a high school student from Valdosta, GA (a couple of hours away from me) will be auditioning for "The Voice" this season.

I don't know if she's one of the people they've breezed past already, or if she hasn't been shown yet, but I'm looking forward to hearing her audition.

I like Christina and wish her well. Shakira is new to me, but if first impressions are anything, I'm liking what I see.

I also like both Cee Lo and Usher. Both of them have a keen sense of humor that helps them meld with Adam, Shakira (Christina) and Blake.

No complaints on any of them.

I've only seen a FEW performers I'd call "awesome", but there's always some that surprise me once we get farther into the competition.

Just my .02, of course, but I think at least half the singers selected so far would be in the Idol final 8, based on what I saw on Idol last week.

I really enjoyed that song "One of Us" that Sarah Simmons sang last night. First time I remember hearing it:

It made me look for the Joan Osborne original:

Yes... Sarah Simmons is my favorite so far. I know she was my Mom's as well. She has also been the highest charting on iTunes so far as well...

Judith Hill, Cáthia, Monique Abbadie, and Holly Tucker are some early favorites as well here.


I can't believe you've never heard the original... WOW!! :eek2:

Love Shakira! A total naturally sexy talent, no posing, no BS. And Usher is fine, long as he stays out of Shakira's way!

Aguilera is the exact opposite of Shakira. Blobby, dumb and insufferable as a persona. And her Turette's-like melisma is nauseating to say the least.

Cee Lo is cool, but Usher will hold up that end of the fort just fine.

To each their own... I found her presence on "The Voice" to be a negative presence... a shame given the chemistry of the other three judges.
