America amazes us with “The Voice”
This new reality TV show is fantastic! Contestants sing to impress the 4 judges, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The twist? They judge solely based on their voices! The series has 3 phases: a blind audition, battle phase and a live performance broadcast. In the blind audition, each judge chooses contestants and acts as their vocal coach. In the battle phase, 2 contestants of each team pit against each other. And finally, the television audience will decide who wins in the live performance.
Here are a couple of my favorite contestants so far:
Why do I like her? Firstly, she’s hella cute! And of course she has excellent raspy vocal chops! Rolling In The Deep is a big song, and for a not-so-big girl, she pulled it off pretty damn well!
Why do I like her? Guess how old she is? 16! SIX-BLOODY-TEEN! And she has such a sweet voice and sweet personality!
Why do I like him? Not only does he have a great voice, he has such an unique story. Mormon Caucasian parents and African American son don’t usually go together. On the plus side? His mom is so cute! Pumping her fist in the air and squealing!
Elenowen (Josh and Nicole Johnson)
Why do I like them? They look PERFECT together! Such a cute looking couple and they have such sweet and complimenting vocals! Plus points for choosing one of my favorite songs ever too!
Why should you watch The Voice?
Well, because it’s honest. The music industry has been focusing so much on the style of the artist, their look, their hair, whatever. But this show is what the music industry should be about; the voices! And the show puts you on the edge of your seat; you constantly pray that a judge will turn their seats around! This is show is very different from American Idol and to that I say: “HELL YES!” That show was getting way too boring anyway. Oh and a side note, the ratings for The Voice even beat Glee and Dancing with the Stars. Yes, it is THAT amazing!
