What's there to discuss beyond Angie Miller?
That's a dead link to an eBay auction!
The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round One = Amber
Round Two = Angie
Agree. And I thought Candice was very good in both rounds, but not as good as Amber's and Angie's best.
Based on the top 4 performances, I would have put Kree at the bottom. I can only guess the country fan votes skewed the results.
To tell you the truth, Steve ... I was bored out of my head. In all the years I've been watching this show, never have I actually contemplated changing the channel before this episode. Even the bad episodes had some redeeming value (a singer, a song, a moment). Not this one. I could have gone without it completely.
Yes, I agree, Candice was OK while Kree was (unbelievably) on my bottom list as well.
To many adult contemporary songs this week .. Hence the boredom. Yes, they did them well, but no it wasn't exciting.
Angie, I thought, added the most flavor to the night and won it easily.
Now we get to do it all over again this week.
On the bright side, it won't be any worse.
I hear ya. That's what's so great about The Voice, IMHO. The judges involvement and interaction is so enjoyable, that even if the singing is so-so, I still look forward to the rest of the show. And I think the singing on The Voice has been pretty good as well this year.
Idol has run its course.. I have not watched in over 3 years or in Idol terms 6 seasons...LOL The judges are ego maniacs. And the network has run the franchise into the ground... It is now a poor also ran of its former glory and competitors.
Your opinion melds with the many others that are concluding the same thing. Sadly, the singer-contestants are no longer the focus of the show. I agree with you that it is now an ego-driven battle between the judges. The quest for talent is secondary, and actually finding it is sometimes accidental.
It's not new, of course. This has been getting progressively worse as seasons go by. When Simon called it quits, it really started to come apart. Kara, Paula, Simon, Ellen, JLo and Steve have all ended their trek here and have left little to show for it … no legacy to speak of. And I don't think the revolving door has stopped turning. Just the other day the news had an article saying that the producers had contemplated replacing Nicki and/or Mariah with Jlo in mid-season - clearly an act of desperation.
I am very interested in the behind-the-scenes meaning of their latest ploy. Have you noticed how many past contestants have made guest appearances - sometimes two on the same episode? It’s as though the producers are reminding us that these past contestants have indeed found a profession after AI (or because of it). Sort of like a self-serving pat on the back.
Can it be fixed and rescued? Perhaps, but not before they do something about the voting method. As it stands, seldom does the most talented get the winning vote. Instead it is the most sexy/popular/outrageous contestant that gets the skewed nod. We’re still living the Taylor Hicks, Season 5 nightmare.
Having said all of that let me admit that I have enjoyed this program tremendously – always have. Through the ups and downs - the "girlie" and pity votes, the scandal firings, the egoistic judges - I have not listened to my better judgment and I have stuck it out. Why? Because I am a lover of talent, that’s why! In spite of themselves, AI has springboarded some exceptional singers, actors and actresses.
But after 12 seasons, I think the program has run out of steam. Tweaked constantly, it still can’t seem to hit the mark. Maybe now is the time to find "The Voice" to say a dignified goodbye.
