Of all these shows how many singers became mega stars?
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, and that's it.
I might add Miranda Lambert

Daughtry's had a decent career. Adam Lambert's doing okay.

Yeah, I'm not sure that winning and getting a restrictive contract is the important thing. I think the exposure and the experience may mean more in the long run.

Even The Voice UK coach Tom Jones said its best not to win. You don't get tied to a restrictive contract where even the coach cannot do anything to help the winner.

Re: The Voice 4

Being a great singer is only half the battle. None of them are going to hit big until they have good original songs to sing. I expect someone like Mackenzie Borg or Melanie Martinez to have a hit long before any of the winners do.

Re: The Voice 4

Now that the blind auditions are over, I think Team Adam is the one to watch this season. Out of all the singers that caught my ears, most of them are on his team.

Still just being chosen for one of these shows means that they have entertained more people then anyone I ever met with the possible exception of Jody Watley who was two years ahead of me in school.

I stop watching after the blind auditions

Yes, I am very much Team Adam this year, with the possible exception of the last singer that Usher claimed last night. (I won't know anyone's name until the battle rounds).

Re: The Voice 4

All of the teams have people to watch. Shakira probably has the weakest on average, but she has some gems too that will almost certainly go the distance.

Re: The Voice 4

I noticed that Amy Whitcomb's audition wasn't really shown, just a short clip of her choosing her coach (I don't even remember which one now). I wondered how intrinsical feels about that.

Only one coach, Adam, turned around for her so yeah she's in the super team. I'm a little bummed that they didn't show her blind audition, but I remembered they also did the same thing to Cassadee Pope's battle round. So I'm hoping that the producers did it intentionally in order to showcase her later. Besides, there's always this...

I think they short-changed Cassadee Pope's battle round because they didn't know what they had in her. She didn't take off until she sang Over You. Sort of like how no one thought much about Dia Frampton until she reached the live round.

The montages are still annoying. They won't even show the full performance on their website or YouTube channel. It short-changes the artist, especially when the iTunes version of the song is usually of a lesser quality than their performances on the show (just listen to how screwed up Terry McDermott's studio recording is for Carry On Wayward Son).

I was already impressed with Cassadee when she sang Torn in the blind audition. That''s why I remembered her battle round got snipped as I had wanted to hear her performance. By the end of last season's battle round, Cassadee was already in my top 3 together with Amanda Brown and Trevin Hunte. Admittedly, I placed her in third place until she sang Over You.

Re: The Voice 4

This is just a guess, but I suspect many of the short-changed performances have to do with song rights.

I don't know about the rest of the audience, but I tune in just to see the performances. This season seems to be even worse than usual with the long and pointless sob stories. Don't waste my time if they're not going to even be on the show. I honestly don't care if her dad died of cancer or how hard some other dude worked but hasn't made it yet. Just give me some awesome singing and the coaches being charming.

Re: The Voice 4

Song rights have to be cleared from the get go otherwise they can't even perform it, because if they win they record their own version for sale on iTunes.

So they went through six battle rounds in two hours. Six. Either they're gonna run battle rounds for the next four weeks or some of these performers will be victims of the montage.

Also, both contestants who were montaged in the blind auditions that they showed tonight got the boot. I wonder if that might become a trend.

Not sure it was a good idea to show both of Shakira's steals on the first night. Unless the rest of the steals were that anticlimactic.
