The Voice, Oct. 1 – Why the Cee Lo Disrespect?

I brought this up after last night’s show, and I’m going to keep bringing it up. Why the Cee Lo Green disrespect? Even when he is clearly the most suited for a contestant, they push him aside to go with another coach. It seems they’re more concerned about winning than developing as an artist. Auditioner: Will Champlin, 30, Reseda, CA. Carson Daly checks in on him while he’s jamming with his dad. That’s not just any dad; it’s Bill Champlin, former singer and guitarist for [...]

The Voice, Sept. 30 – Stingy Judges

You can tell we’re starting to wind down closer to the end of the auditions. The judges are starting to get stingier and stingier with turning around their chairs. Nobody tonight can prompt all four judges to turn their chairs, but it’s not for lack of talent. The judges are most likely noticing that they only have a few spots left on their teams and are trying to leave spots open for the truly deserving. Auditioner: Ray Boudreaux, 25, Lafayette, LA. He grew up in [...]

The X Factor, Sept. 26 – The Top 40

We’re still flogging through the auditions, yet by the end of this episode, not only will we be done with the auditions, but only forty contestants will remain, and the judges will know which categories they re mentoring. Auditioner: Neal Macomber, 45, San Luis Obispo, CA. He’s a general contractor and wants to share his positivity with others. He’s asked why he’s starting now, and he thinks today is the day. This is seeming like a “bad audition” so far. He’s single because he hasn’t [...]

The X Factor, Sept. 25 – The Right Yes

What the auditioners on The X Factor are looking for are yeses. They want the judges to be so pleased with their performance that they agree to let them continue on in the show. One auditioner tonight gets only two yeses, but they’re perhaps the most important yeses he’ll ever get. Auditioner: Melanie Wright, 49, Crofton, Maryland. She’s been a paralegal for twenty-six years but is ready to do what her heart has always wanted to do. She wants to be the equivalent of Carrie [...]

The Voice, Sept. 24 – Leading Up to An Exciting Battle Round

One thing that sets The Voice apart that I really love is that they don’t play bad auditions. They don’t set anyone up to be made fun of. Everyone who appears in the auditions has a legitimate chance to be on the show, even if they don’t always make it. In many ways that makes it a more enjoyable show to watch. Auditioner: Jacquie Lee, 16, Colts Neck, NJ. She’s not from a musical family, but they do eat a lot. She started singing at [...]

The Voice, Sept. 23 – We’re Gettin’ the Gang Back Together

The gang is back together on The Voice After just one season with Shakira and Usher, they’re out and Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are back in. I have to adit, I missed Cee Lo, but didn’t really miss Christina. I liked Usher, but didn’t really care too much for Shakira. Is it too much to ask to keep Usher and replace Shakira with Cee Lo? Judges Performance: Blake, Christina, Cee Lo, and Adam. I Love Rock ‘n Roll Auditioner: Kat Robichaud, 29, Raleigh, [...]

The X Factor, Sept. 19 – Surprises

Tonight’s X Factor is filled with surprises. Contestants you think will be an automatic yes have to fight for it. Contestants who think they themselves are everything and a bag of chips need to do a little more self discovery. And contestants who come off very unassuming are packing a big wallop inside. Auditioner: Andrew Scholz, 18, from Summerville,SC. He’s a pole vaulter and gymnast and knows people see an athlete when they look at him, but his dream is “to sing some songs, man, [...]

Interview with Cami Bradley of America’s Got Talent

Season eight of America’s Got Talent has to be one of the better seasons for the show, if not the best season so far. This has to do with many factors including a judging team that gelled very well and of course some phenomenal talent. This talent was so supreme that it was hard to predict how it would turn out. I had a chance to talk about how the season went with finalist Cami Bradley who surprisingly went out in sixth place. Cami couldn’t [...]

The X Factor, Sept. 18 – Second Chances

Everyone deserves a second chance. Well, almost. I like to think everyone gets a second chance, and tonight’s X Factor has a few auditioners looking for that second chance. Many wanted that first chance and will probably be looking for that second chance next year or in a different venue, but there are also a few auditioners who just want that second chance to prove themselves. Auditioner: Sister Shirley and Cynthia Olivero, 24 and 16, from L.A. Song: I Want You Back Me: They think [...]

The X Factor, Sept. 12 – Simon and His Harem

Wednesday night’s season premiere of The X Factor was definitely a success. As narcissistic as it might seem, Simon Cowell’s decision to now go with three females at the judging table with him was a good move, at least these particular three. Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, and Paulina Rubio all got along really well together and also related well to Simon. They all seemed comfortable. Britney Spears just never seemed comfortable in that role last year, and the L.A. Reid/Simon arguments were never fun. Tonight [...]
