Re: The Voice (U.S.)

All that proves is that the blind auditions happen before the battle rounds. Ratings always decline for a show over the course of the season.

I listened to a few songs from Cassadee Pope's album. Boy they sure did not pull out their best songwriters for this. Their Berklee School of Music C students instead of their Berklee School of Music A students. All the hooks fall awkwardly flat.

Briana Cuoco showed a big improvement in her battle round over her why-did-anyone-turn-for-you blind audition, although I still think Blake stole her just to provide fodder for one of his original singers.
I don't think she's anything special, but will she last based on her famous last name?

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

It can definitely be a factor once the voting starts up. Her sister and famous friends can all tweet up a storm to get her extra votes every week. I wouldn't be surprised if Blake factored that stuff in when he picked her.

Assuming Holly Henry makes the live rounds, I suspect Blake will be pushing the rest of his singers off to the side to clear a path for her. Only a handful of contestants have charted on iTunes so far, but Henry blew everyone else out of the water.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Anyone watch Monday's battle rounds? CeeLo had the most nonsensical reason for picking George over Juhi.

I think I disagreed with four of the six coaches selections that night.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Yeah, CeeLo obviously picked the wrong person, but I think he did so because he was certain that Juhi would get stolen by another coach. CeeLo has often seemed to do that in the past - choose the winner strategically based on who is more likely to be saved.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Another website is questioning if there's a conspiracy theory going on with three of Blake's battle rounds getting the montage treatment, especially since one of them was Holly Henry, who is the only Season 5 artist who lit up the iTunes chart for an extended period of time with her blind audition single.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Their choices of montage battles have been very strange this year. Last week there was more than one montage that I had actually really wanted to see the battles for. Yet they show us the full battles for people whose names or the song they performed I can't even remember. Some very boring ones.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

I missed Monday's episode but in general I have mostly agreed with the coach's choices.

The montage treatment generally means an artist does not make it to the live rounds, which has me curious about Holly Henry. Not that I'd terribly mind getting the Bland Blake Blond out of the way early this time around.

The montage treatment actually means nothing. The blind audition montage means they don't have some sad back story the show can exploit.

There have been singers who have been montaged twice who ended up making the live rounds. And since the audience doesn't know who they are, they were promptly voted off the show.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

It didn't surprise me that Holly went home. She really botched that performance of Creep. She has moments of talent, but is very inconsistent. Oh well.

The thing about the pre-live rounds is that everything is done in a vacuum. If Blake had known Holly would light up iTunes like no one else in season 5, he would've kept her and then pushed everyone else on his team down to prop her up. Not saying that's fair, but when have the coaches ever been fair? Hell, last week CeeLo picked the less talented singer on the basis that he's been working harder at making music a career.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Neither Holly or Nic really impressed me. If I could've sent both of them home at that point, I would've.

The only people that have really impressed me has been the Jamaican artist who wants to make it in America. She has a powerhouse for a voice and knows how to use it and Cole, whose song choice yesterday showed off where his niche is.

Re: The Voice (U.S.)

Cole's single is in the iTunes Top 20 right now. Blake may have lucked into another big seller if they can find the right songs to sing, because he's the one coach who sure knows what songs sell well.
