The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

American Idol, May 16 – Three Very Different Singers

I wish Jennifer Lopez wouldn’t have been so honest. It’s right at the crux of the season when everything is getting really exciting, down to the final three. She picks this time to announce to Ellen DeGeneres that she’s not sure if she’s coming back. What? I wasn’t in any way comfortable with this group of judges two years ago, but now I think it’s worked it’s way into a comfortable spot. I sure hope it’s just a momentary lapse in judgment for J-Lo. As [...]

American Idol, May 10 – Outlook for Remaining Final 3

Since very early on in this American Idol season, it’s seemed very probable that the final three would end up being Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez, and Joshua Ledet. Despite the surprises throughout the season, that’s exactly what we’re ending up with. It almost always turns up that the final two are exactly how it should have been all along. The only season it seems that didn’t happen was the year Chris Daughtry went out in fourth place. Everyone seemed to think afterwards that people were [...]

American Idol, May 9 – The Four Swingers

I was wondering how they were going to stretch the final four of American Idol out to two hours, and I have my answer. Two duets, a group performance, and an Adam Shankman mansion visit, and it seemed like nearly thirty to forty–five minutes. What will they add on next week? Three songs apiece is still only an hour. Tonight they’re doing two songs apiece, one a song song by an California artist or about California, and the other a song that so inspires them, [...]

The Voice, May 8 – And the Winner is … Purrfect the Cat Edition!!

They came, they sang, and now tonight we find out who will be crowned The Voice.  But not before the producers stretch out what could be handled in a five-minute program into a two-hour event.  For those of you who can’t remember, here are the finalists: Team Adam: Tony Lucca Team Blake: Jermaine Paul Team Cee Lo: Juliet Simms Team Christina: Chris Mann (Does anyone else find it kind of funny that the only woman left is on Team Cee Lo?) Tonight will feature performances [...]

The Voice, May 7 – Final Showdown (Christina & Tony) Edition

And then there were four. Jermaine Paul Tony Lucca Chris Mann and Juliet Simms. Juliet Simms is the favorite to win 1/2, while Tony Lucca is right behind at 5/2.  Paul is down at 15/2 while Mann is the long shot at 10/1.  This according to The Spread. According to me, I think it’s going to come down to either Tony Lucca or Juliet Simms.  At the outset, I’ll say Juliet has the edge, but we’ll see what happens as the night progresses. Tonight, we [...]

American Idol, May 3 – Outlook for Remaining Top 4

Every American Idol season has one. A person who everyone expects to go each week, but who manages to hang on week after week. They appear in the final two or three week after week, but never go home. Sometimes they hang on until the bitter end at final three, but they never make final two. Season one it was Nikki McKibbin. Last season it was Haley Reinhart. Sure, she had a lot fans, but she also had that vacation home in the bottom two [...]

American Idol, May 2 – Your Choice: Different or Best?

I’m thinking when Elise Testone left last week, she gave Hollie Cavanagh the keys to her summer house in the bottom three. I think she’ll be there no matter what she does tonight. To start the show, a girl with medium-length blonde hair is holding a sign that says, “Ryan, will you do my hair?” He tells her he will right after the show. I thought his request line on the radio meant something a little different. Ryan moves on to discussing our two themes [...]

The Voice, May 1 – Last Elimination Before Finals Edition

It’s that time again.  Time to see who goes home and who lives to sing another day.  That day being next Monday for the big finale.  That’s right, tonight is Elimination night on The Voice.  And there are no more saves left, no more last chance performances.  (Thank God.) Since they start off with their own recap, let’s do our own, but without the overly dramatic music between clips. Team Adam: Katrina Parker vs. Tony Lucca Team Blake: Jermaine Paul vs. Erin Willett Team Cee [...]

The Voice, Apr. 30 – Final 8 Edition

Time for the semi-finals on The Voice!  The coaches give scores to the performers and we can give them right back. Keep in mind, each person needs to only do better than the other performer on their team to advance, but that means that there’s also very little room for error. Who’s going to take the stage tonight, you ask? Team Adam: Katrina Parker vs. Tony Lucca Team Blake: Jermaine Paul vs. Erin Willett Team Cee Lo: Juliet Simms vs. Jamar Rodgers Team Christina: Lindsey [...]

American Idol, Apr. 26 – Outlook for Remaining Top 5

The writing was on the wall over who would be going home tonight on American Idol. Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh have appeared in the bottom three so often, there is no way either were going to win the show. Regardless of whether you’re not the person with the least amount of votes, you had less votes than most of the other people there. You’re not going to get the votes. Period. You can have some great weeks to earn a few more fans, but [...]
