The Voice

Anyone watching? American Idol with a twist. I'm enjoying it so far.

We didn't know it premiered tonight until we were on our way to the movies and heard an add on TV. I'm going to try and remember to watch, I'm very interested in the conceit of this one.

I like the concept and it's exciting to see which coaches are going to turn around for which artists. So far there's been some pretty good singers.

me too! I stumbled on it last nite and didn't realize it was the premiere. Thought it had been on for like a week.

I think it's a great concept and some great talent so far. I will watch this one for sure.. Now I have something to watch on Tuesday nite.

I usually don't go in for these vocal competitions- American Idol or any others- but I thought this was an interesting concept. Plus, this was probably the most heavily promoted show I can think of in recent memory, so I figured I'd check it out. I thought it was pretty good. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out. I think the Javier guy, the 16-year-old girl and the American Boy singer were probably the best.

Ehhhhh.

I'm curious about the concept of teams and coaches, but all the backstories and backstage talky talk and stage is reminding me too much of America's Got Talent or something. I'm just fast-forwarding through most of it.

Also? Frenchie completely unimpressed me. It didn't help that she picked a song that I hate so much, but I was really surprised to hear her sing. I remembered her being a lot better when she was on Idol.

This is an intriguing concept. I love Blake. It doesn't hurt that he reminds me of Terry from True Blood.

I agree on the stupid backstories Cori. They were not necessary. The worst one was the pretty girl whining about being pretty. Seriously?

So far my favorite has been the girl who was singing Come as You Are. Her voice was haunting.

I'm not watching this show because NBC advertises it wayyy too much; I'm already annoyed with it and I haven't even seen it.

The only singer I really liked was the one (Xenia?) who sang that Script song. She had a cool quality to her voice that I dug.

Finally watching. I'm confused. All of these people already have careers?

This is going to sound really weird (and possibly mean), but considering how much they played up the ".... and they have no idea what they look like! They judge the voice only!"

Most of the singers who we've seen (chosen or not) have been pretty conventional looking. I was expecting more "middle aged mom" or "ha ha, look at that dork, he can't be a pop sing ...... ooooooooooh, wow!" types.

Otherwise, what's the point now that they've had their blind auditions? It's just another singing show where a bunch of conventional-looking pop singers compete.

I don't understand why this was at any point NOT a blind show. I thought thatw as the point?

Yeah, I guess now they work with their teams and winnow them down somehow (apparently this week it's singing face-offs or whatever, both singing the song on stage at the same time), and then at some point the viewers vote.

YAWN.

Well there are 32 contestants right now I believe, and each night four pairs of them (one for each judge) face off on a duet. The winner moves on, the loser's gone. Which is kind of intense. Once they've narrowed it down to 16 contestants, we move to live shows, and yes, voting.
