Here we go again. Another stellar batch of singers were unveiled last week during the premiere episode of The Voice Season 5. And, even stranger, these singers came to this show with a strong sense of artistic identity and outstanding vocal technical skills.
So, why has American Idol struggled so over the past few years? There has been an handful of exceptional singers but, overall, during the past 3 years or so, the Top 10 has always left me wanting more.
Is it any wonder that The Voice ratings are so high?
Last week, singer after singer left everything on the stage and, if the rumours are true, this season is going to be extremely competitive.
Now, if this show would eliminate all the filler, it would be perfect. The backstory and the post-audition segments are beyond tedious. No one cares – we just want to hear these singers sing. A little info. Is fine but a full-fledged biography? Uhm no!
The show airs Monday and Tuesday at 8:00 PM on NBC.
Below, is a Vine clip tweeted by The Voice’s Twitter page. Pretty exciting sound!
