The Voice, Mar. 19 – Everyone Makes Mistakes Edition

So last week, I thought tonight was the last night of battle rounds, but I guess I was wrong. I know, I know, hard to believe, but it happens. Hey, everyone makes mistakes. I wonder how many our loveable coaches will make tonight, or if they’ll pick the artists I’m telling them to from my living room. Which they should always do. Adam’s team is up first.  He gives what I guess counts as a pep talk to his team before setting Pip up against [...]

American Idol, Mar. 15 – Outlook for Remaining Top 10

One week ago we had the American Idol full top 13, and the judges decided to send Jeremy Rosado home instead of Elise Testone. Tuesday night this year’s Idol controversy took place, and the producers sent home Jermaine Jones after not disclosing he had warrants out against him. While you would assume that kept everyone safe this week, that would be a wrong assumption. Idol still sent someone home this week, as the top 13 became the top 12, the top 11, and suddenly the [...]

American Idol, Mar. 14 – Controversy Hits Season 11

You didn’t think we were going to make it all the way through this American Idolseason without some controversy, did you? TMZ dug up that Jermaine Jones is in trouble with the American Idol folks … and the law. It seems he has some outstanding warrants against him that he decided to not disclose when he auditioned. Color him gone. The only question is if they will still have a regular elimination this week as well. Ryan Seacrest opens up the show talking about the [...]

The Voice, Mar. 12 – Blake in a Heart Shaped Box Edition

We’re back for part two of the battle rounds! 12 more take the stage, but only 6 move on. Christina Aguilera is up first. She’s pitting Geoff McBride against Sera Hill, who will duke it out over Aretha Franklin’s Chain of Fools.  I have to remind myself that Geoff is wearing those glasses for medical reasons. We get our quick recap of how they arrived here, and then it’s in the studio. Geoff is hoping his experience pays off, while Sera’s plan is to pull [...]

American Idol, Mar. 8 – Outlook for Remaining Final 12

Before we even get into Thursday night’s American Idol results, I have to first take issue with a statement from Jimmy Iovine. He said on the results show that God mass-produces too many singers. He was making a point that Whitney Houston, however, was one-of-a-kind. He doesn’t mass-produce too many. Singing is good. They don’t all have to be on American Idol. Having people who are happy singing isn’t a bad thing. It makes the world a better place. With that PSA over, we can [...]

American Idol, Mar. 7 – A Night with Whitney and Stevie

Usually at this stage, I’m looking at the group of finalists and already selecting the group I hope goes home first. I can’t really say that this time. Sure, I have my favorites that I want to stick around, but there isn’t anyone who I don’t think deserves to be in the top 13, despite not necessarily agreeing with the judges’ wildcard picks. I’m hoping to still feel that way at the end of the night, after a night of Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston [...]

The Voice, Mar. 5 – Let the Battle Round Begin Edition

Tonight on The Voice, we begin to see the singers duke it out with the Battle Rounds. (Cue theme music from Rocky!) We also get some celebrity help from Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Ne-Yo, BabyFace, Alanis Morrisette, Robin Thicke, Jewel and Lionel Ritchie! For those of you new to the Battle Rounds, the different coaches have to whittle their teams down to 6 contestants.  To do this they pair them up, assign them a song and have them come out on a stage/boxing ring and [...]

The Voice, Feb. 27 – Potty Training the Lorax Edition

We’re down to the wire here tonight!  It’s the last night of the Blind Auditions!  The last chance for our artists to fill their teams, which probably means that the coaches will fluctuate between being extra stingy and at times extra desperate, depending on who they have to choose from. We start off the night with 25-year-old Whitney Myer, who currently sings lead with a band that features her father and uncle.  Sounds like fun, huh? No One starts and the coaches are all doing [...]

American Idol, Feb. 28 – “So Much Variety Already With So Many Flavors”

American Idol, Feb. 28 – “So Much Variety Already With So Many Flavors”The thirteen men semi-finalists will perform live for the first time tonight on American Idol, and I have to say off the top of my head, I can’t think of any of them that I think doesn’t belong there. However, I also can’t remember them all, and sometimes what’s even worse than doing badly on American Idol is not being memorable enough. Ryan Seacrest welcomes us to the new set and welcomes the [...]

American Idol, Feb. 23 – Shooting for the Moon

There aren’t too many spots left in the Top 24 of American Idol season 11, yet there are still some big names waiting to hear the news if they made it or not. It was a shock to see Lauren Gray not make it through. I’m guessing they saved at least one big name that didn’t make it through for today. There is bound to be another shock, and I’m bracing for it. We pick up where we left off last night, with Adam Brock [...]
