Re: The Voice [AUS] - Battle Rounds
I usually can't stand shows like this (Idol, X-factor etc) but they have found some really interesting artists in this show.
Most of the battles have been of a pretty high standard so far but Mahalia v. Prinnie was a standout. The thing that I don't like is that there has to be a sacraficial lamb to go up against the really popular contestants to make sure they get through the battle rounds. The guy who went up against Rachael and the woman who was against Karise weren't going to get through no matter how well they sang simply because of the hype surrounding those two girls (deserved as it may be).
The judges (particularly Delta) can be pretty irritating but there are enough good voices to keep me watching for now.
Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova
Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon
Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives
