The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

I am so glad Usher and Shakira are back. Don't get me wrong, I'll miss the wacky antics of Cee-Lo, but any season without Christina is a plus.

I'm also enjoying the opening of them singing each others songs.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

I like Usher's approach to coaching. I think I prefer him to Cee-Lo just because, as cool as Cee-Lo is, he's bad at the game. He keeps picking these performy gimmicky 80s songs for people because he thinks it'll be cool and not because it's best for the singer's style or likely to get votes.

I think they're trying to set Christina Grimmie up to win this season. They posted her blind audition last week and it's already over a million views.

I'm amazed how much better Jake Worthington is compared to last year.

They posted her audition because of "Team Grimmie", the million youtube viewers who support her and love to hear her sing. They help to hype up the current season and bring in much needed viewers.

As for winning the voice? I kinda doubt it. She's good and I've been listening to her for years, but neither of her two albums did well to even place in the top 100 charts. And for some reason she sounded really nasal in the studio. Chances are she's going to end up like Judith Hill, all hyped up as the person to beat only to crash out mid-way through the competition.

Well if Grimmie makes the live rounds, that's a massive voting base for her.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

If NBC is putting effort into promoting Grimmie, I'm guessing she had the live rounds.

Or, we'll know for sure when we see whether or not they montage her knockout round.

With Judith Hill, they kept pounding OVER and OVER about her Michael Jackson connection -- i bet that turned off a lot of people. I really think she could have won, but pleased that a Chinese-Jamaican won.

The Voice has been waaaay more diverse so far than American Idol, and the judges are having a lot of fun so far.

Idol needs to take some notes in order to survive and even thrive again.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

The producers have already put her up front and center in the first episode of the season. Of course they are going to hype the fact that she's a youtube sensation with 75 million views in just a single video. That's more views than many recording artists have in all their combined videos.

That hype from the producers, combined with her choice of Adam Levine (I'm still disappointed he dropped Amy Whitcomb lol) as her coach means she doesn't much of a chance at winning.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

I am also glad to have a season where we don't have to listen to Christina. I read an article a few days ago that said CeeLo would not be returning to the show. That makes me kind of sad. My preferred judges would be Adam, CeeLo, Shakira, and Blake (though I'm getting a bit tired of him and ready for someone new in that seat).

Lots of good performances so far. I don't bother remembering people's names at this point because who knows whether they will even make it past the battle or knockout rounds. But it seems like it will be a good season.

Episode two seemed to consist solely of people who will get eliminated before the live shows.

I'm in love with Ddendyl Hoyt's voice. She's the girl who sang Stand By Me.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

I'm curious, what makes a singer fail to perform?

I'm looking at Christina Grimmie's performance of Counting Stars. The youtube version from two months ago is great but her performance of the exact same song on The Voice is terrible.

Re: The Voice (U.S.) Season 6 Discussion Thread

I didn't think her performance of Counting Stars was that terrible. Certainly not the best it could be, but I do think that she won the battle against Ddendyl. I liked Ddendyl's voice a lot but she did not do well with that song.

I was a little disappointed that Biff Gore wasn't stolen. I feel like he did very well, even up against an amazing singer like Sisaundra.

I think The Voice is the final nail in American Idols coffin. The folks being cut from The Voice are far in a way BETTER than the final 10 on this seasons Idol!
