Thoughts:

1. Does Jessie J know how to sit properly? :tape:
2. Will.i.am's constant namedropping is annoying to watch, I still have no idea why he is part of the judge panel in the first place
3. Tom Jones' selections :lol: bless him
4. Is it just me or are the other three judges constantly throwing shade towards Will.I.am? :tape:
5. Danny is hot

I thought it would focus on being a TV singing contest, not a sob story marathon or a place for the coaches/judges to feed their egos. I was wrong :sad:

what a fail panel :lol:

i watched the german edition of "the voice" a while ago and this show was really entertaining because the jury was hilarious and obviously having so much fun, with each other and with the contestants. they were most definitely not - as mary cherry puts it - feeding their egos.

the sob story element was a little dissapointing. I thought that was gone.

Yeah, the coaches make a difference. See the US version :lol:

Well, I suppose at least the premise >>> The X Factor's :shrug:

Mar 26th, 2012, 06:01 PM
Was a bit too like the X-Factor for me. Danny and Jessie J seemed good judges. Tom didn't seem to know what was going on, and Will I am was just so annoying. But he did get prob the best of the night with that girl who sang Jessie J song, and did it so much better than Jessie ever did!!

Overall it was a bad show, focussed way too much on stories and big build ups.
Have been watching the Voice Irelands version, it's been running for last few weeks and I love it. There are no big stories, no tears...its just go sing, If u are shit we say no, if u are good go thru.

The standard is good too by singers...but judges are Kian from Westlife, Sharon from the Corrs, Brian Kennedy & a lead singer from a group The Blizzards who had 1 hit about 5 years ago! But he is a "hot" guy and the girls love him...so he gets a seat too :(

Sean.
Mar 30th, 2012, 11:02 PM
Danny irritated me, comes across really arrogant & sleazy! Will.I.Am's namedropping was damn annoying too!

Jessee killed it! :yeah: - shame the red headed girl didn't pick her.

Monica_Rules

I liked this weeks more. I think once you get over the whole blind auditions thing you settle down into watching it as a programme its better.

Quite a few good ones this week

Although it was lovely to see her on my tv screen I felt a little bad for Five Star's Denise Pearson that she has to audition on a show like this these days. Must be hard to be judged when you've sold as many if not more records than the people judging you. I'm glad she at least got through.

Was just about to bump this myself.
Spending my Monday catching up with Iplayer. :oh:.

I'm a little pissed that they put the duo of Indie and Pixie through. All 4 judges turning too. What the actual heck? :o.

l6Qp8qPSX6o


Only for absolutely nobody to turn for much better acts during the episode (Harriet for example). Their excuse for not putting her through is that they already had too many singers in their camps already.

Doesn't seem very fair to the singers in the later auditions.

Normally I hate the reality shows, like X Factor/Britains got Talent etc, but have to say I love the Voice.
There is no stupid drama, sob stories and I only saw Saturday nights "battles" but wow there was some amazing talent there.

Love Will Iam as a judge too, he has great facial expressions during songs, and says some great funny comments too...he has his own language goin on! Danny is ok, Tom is old and like a nice grandad/uncle. Jessie J is a bit annoying tho :(

Reckon that Ruth I think her name was amazing, thee guy Jazz/Jez or something like that was close 2nd. The battle with 2 dudes singing "Beggin" was quality.

Good show, hope it keeps destroying Cowells shows in the viewer numbers :)

Apr 23rd, 2012, 05:34 PM
I'm really liking the show, it's not just a Cowell money making scheme or a freak show - just enjoyable television!

Wrong Choices (IMO):
Tom - Sam Buttery over Aundrea Nyle
Jessie - Cassius Henry over David Faulkner

will.i.am had mpossibly hard choices with :
Frances Wood over Kate Read
Sophie Griffin over J Marie Cooper

I agree Sam was totally wrong choice.

Haven't seen last nights yet, have it sky plussed so look forward to watching it later.

Reckon X-Factor is going so suffer bad this year or else gonna have to cut out all the crap. Voice has been quality, even here in Ireland where the standard hasn't been as good and much smaller budget for the show the Irish Voice has been a good watch. Final next week and shud be good.

Team Tom:

Sam - I don't really remember his performance that much to be honest. I'm not a fan, because he irritates me, but vocally he was pretty good, I seem to remember. :scratch:

Adam - Poor song choice I though, difficult to sing live and get your voice across over the guitar. He was also a bit weird in the interview! But he can probably rely on the "pretty boy vote".

Leanne - She's got a really good voice, you can tell she's had a lot of lessons because she's got good control and technique. I was worried at first about the song, but I like what she did with it!

Matt and Sueleen - Never been a fan of these two, but I thought vocally Matt was actually pretty good today. Sueleen on the other hand was awful, off key. :tape: I suspect these might go this week (groups are never popular).

Ruth - Am I the only one what thinks she was flat on a couple of the big notes and completely missed the falsetto note? :unsure: The judges went on and on about her though, she's talented but fluffed it tonight I thought!

Want to Go: Matt & Sueleen
Think will Go: Matt and Sueleen

Sean.
Apr 28th, 2012, 08:21 PM
Team Will:

Joelle - really enjoyed her performance, vocally good. She might suffer a bit from going first though.

Frances - I really like her, she's my kind of thing. Plus she's already much better than the blind audition, and has showed she can do different genres. Good song choice from Will too.

Jaz - the judges are right, he's got a really nice voice, but I find him a bit boring & can't see him winning the show. Can't even remember what he sung. :scratch:

Tyler - up until now I've not really been a fan, continually playing the 'Amy' card is slightly irritating, but he gave a good performance tonight I thought. He could still be in trouble though, older solo guys are sometimes early casualties.

Sophie - Didn't like it, I don't really see anything special in her. I know she's young but there are better female vocalists in the competition. She'll get the irish vote though so she's be around for a bit.

Want to Go: Sophie
Think will Go: Tyler

Sean.
Apr 28th, 2012, 08:24 PM
Overall really like the show still, its nice not to have an ad break after every act, and the sob stories and judges begging for votes are kept to a minimum. Only criticism is sometimes the judges talk for a bit long & the twitter part is a bit crap. There are no joke acts and all the finalists deserve to be there- it's about talent not dram TV. Blowing Cowell-factor out of the water! :worship:

Joelle: Pretty good. Everything's there but I'm not a fan yet.:oh:
Sam: Good vocals but won't last long for sure.:oh:
Frances: Reminds me of young Xtina, ferocious and growly vocals.:oh:
Adam: He's like way weirder and somehow creepy from the first time I see his audition (song choice?).:lol: He's kind of versatile though. Can rock it out and be tender.:yeah:
Jaz: Well, predictable, no?:oh: But somehow I think he'd do well in a band, like Boyz II Men.:lol:
Leanne: Somehow clicked mid way of the peformance. Tom is like making her the second Shirley Bassey, singing P!nk's song with that kind of big voice.:lol:
Sophie: Mediocre due to bad song choice.:shrug: J Marie would've nailed it perfectly.
Matt+Sueleen: Sueleen isn't meant to sing such song.:shrug: Matt did great but too bad
Tyler: His voice is very interesting. Not a fan of his song choices though. He should sing Justin Timberlake's songs.:lol:
Ruth: Reminds me of J-Hud, very talented but somehow lacks experience. Dodgy notes here and there but still alright as she has the wow moment.:oh:

Frances: Boring, could be in trouble tonight
Adam: ODG. Awful. So uncomfortable to watch
Jaz: Amazing but kind of getting samey
Leanne: Npot badd at all, quite liked her. She should be safe
Sophie: I'm sorry but this performance proved she should not have gotten through. Will prob be in the bottom with Frances
Matt+Sueleen: Um, interesting to have a duo and singing old school songs. Its going to be between these, Sam and Adam as to who goes.
Tyler: I really like Tyler, theres something about him. I wish he would stick to his folceto or normal voice as jumping inbetween the two just souns wrong
Ruth: Not a polished performance by far but man can this girl sing.

This shows sucks. This has to be the worst final ever, even worse than Michelle McManus and Mark on Pop Idol 2.

Terrible.

Just think you had Ruth, Joelle, Jaz and Max (for reasons not related to talent :angel:) and you get this final four!!

Bo should win as she's the only decent one.

Leanne should have been on one of those Andrew Lloyd Webber search for a musical star shows.

Vince :tape:

Tyler, he is like the fuglier version of David Beckham and his voice is terrible. Doing Queen last week was one of the worse performances I've heard and he was praised for no reason. His falsetto is over rated. I'd rather hear Usher singing Climax in falsetto that this idiot!


p.s. I've always liked Joelle since I saw her on X-Factor (the year Alexandra Burke won).
