[VIDEO] Vocal Masterclass Discussion For NBC’s The Voice Season 3: The Blind Auditions Week 3

The talent sure is racking up on The Voice Season 6. Singing genius continued to explode on the stage last week and it looks like this is going to be a great season once again.

In the video featured below, we have the opportunity to participate in a Blind Audition. Would you have turned your chair for this singer? I wouldn’t and I understand the natural hesitancy of some of the judges to turn their chair.

For me, the voice is too thin, sort of nasally and almost compromised in terms of proper intonation.

Stylistically, the singer is excellent but I like to hear more substance in the vocal quality.

But this is just my opinion. How do you feel? Do you agree with me or the judges? Let’s have some fun here.

The Voice airs on NBC at 8:00 PM Eastern Monday, March 10th and Tuesday, March 11th..

  1. I agree with you Rosanne,, not enough richness or depth.

  2. I also agree with you, Rosanne. Too many sound like she does. There have been a few they passed on that I thought should have made it through. The judges realize this and tell them to come back next year. The Voice does have professional people going through. Yet, I felt American Idol was letting too many teens into the TOP 30. Each show has its advantages and disadvantages. TBH, I am glad that X-Factor was cancelled.

  3. Kariann – yes, the cancellation of X-Factor made absolute sense. I still can’t get my head around what American Idol is trying to accomplish with all these very young, very inexperienced singers. Very strange. And The Voice still manages to find the best singers out there – except, for example, this particular singer we are speaking about. I never saw the show last night. I thought she was a he. Haha

  4. Rosanne-I wouldn’t have turned my chair either. Very nice voice, but needs more growth. It’s interesting how The Voice welcomes incredible talent with open arms while AI sends them home. I still find it almost funny that Harry said this season of AI has the best talent since Season 1! Regarding the X-Factor, apparently after Fox decided to cancel the show, Simon Cowell approached NBC to ask if they would pick up X-Factor, and they declined. Had you heard about that Rosanne?
