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, Feb. 22 – “Bozos On the Bus”

Tonight we start finding out who the final 24 are, and which favorites were cut, on American Idol. We’re finally done with all these extra performances. Oops, not yet. They’ll still perform one more time for the judges tonight, but I don’t know if it will really make that much of a difference, as they probably already have their minds made up, and with the ones they haven’t decided on, this probably won’t make too much of a difference. I’m not really understanding the point. [...]

The Voice, Feb. 20th – Sometimes, I Want a Sandwich Edition.

It’s time for The Voice, Blind auditions, part 4.  The Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are still building their teams, but as they do, each coach will probably get a bit stingier with their button pushing. We start out the night with another first name only singer.  This time, he’s name is Ducky. Neither Daffy nor Donald Duck ever had a moustache quite that cool. I can’t help but wonder what the story is behind that name.  I assume that [...]

American Idol, Feb. 16 – J-Lo’s Goosebumps for a Stellar Top 40

Just last year, American Idolstarting sending their contestants through an extra step between Hollywood Week and the announcement of the semi-finalists. Instead of narrowing the group down in Hollywood, then narrowing them down again without the benefit of any additional knowledge, they now send them to Las Vegas to watch them perform again. Richie Law writes on someone’s face in the bus, and she repays him by doing it on his face from behind while he sleeps. He repays her by punching her in some [...]

The Voice, Feb. 13 – Just Pip!

We start out with the blind auditions of The Voice with a little turnabout is fair play.  This time, we’re not going to see a contestant’s face.  They don’t even tell us if it’s a guy or girl.  We hear how she (at this point I’m pretty sure it’s a she) has been offered contracts before, but only if she changed the way she looks. We see some guitar strumming as she prepares to take the stage and starts You and I. The Judges seem [...]

American Idol, Feb. 9 – Idol Bug Plagues Contestants

Hollywood week continues tonight, but first we’ll have to put up with the drama that Nigel Lythgoe left for us last night. A 16-year-old girl fell off the stage and looked to be critically injured at first glance. Obviously she made it out okay, or we would have heard about it before, so it was really shameful for Nigel to use this as cliffhanger material to get us to tune in tonight. Newsflash, Nigel. I would have tuned in anyway, but this made me second-guess [...]

American Idol, Feb. 8 – An Unnecessary Ending

After what seems like a really quick few weeks of auditions, we’re already into Hollywood Week. It’s not exactly like it once was, as they speed it up in order to devote one-and-a-half evenings to the Green Mile episode(s). This means all the drama we’re left with in the end is the tears from people getting cut and begging to say, as well as people staying up too late in group round, then not being able to get along with each other when they’re stressed [...]

The Voice, Feb. 6 – Cheese Ball Edition

The Voice blind auditions part II are about to begin. We’re in for two hours of a chair-turning, star-discovering, wise-cracking ride with Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton. I’m all set. This time instead of popcorn, I’m armed with little puffy cheese balls and I’m not afraid to use them.  I don’t want to use them, I’d rather eat them, but I will if I have to. (I’m talking to you there Blake Shelton!) But before we get to the unknowns, the [...]

The Voice, Feb. 5 – Super Bowl Night Premiere!

So in case you really have been living under a rock, the Super Bowl was tonight.  Since history has unfolded once again as it was meant to, meaning the Giants won against the Patriots, I am able to now enjoy the post Super Bowl premiere of The Voice!  But I don’t have any popcorn left because I threw it at the screen during that game and the dogs ate it. The rules of the auditions are pretty simple.  Singer comes out while the coaches have [...]

American Idol, Feb. 2 – Honoring the Dads in St. Louis

Have we met this year’s American Idol yet? If not, we only have one more city of auditions to do so. St. Louis is the last of the auditions, meaning, if we don’t meet the winner here, it was one of the other warblers we were already introduced to. Who do you think it will be? Any early guesses? Or would you rather wait and see what St. Louis has to offer? Interestingly, before the auditions begin, the show reminisces a little bit, taking us [...]

American Idol, Feb. 1 – Portland Shows Some Character

Admittedly the auditions so far haven’t knocked anyone’s socks off. Yet they’re also going by very quickly. This is the last week already. Usually by the time we get to the last week, it seems as if they have dragged on forever. This must be because of an increased effort to not focus on the bad auditions. They seem to be following suit with the other talent shows. The judges, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson, are in Portland, Oregon, tonight to see what [...]
