Dia Frampton, The Voice

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For The Voice Season One Live Finale Show


20110628-032203.jpg

Tonight’s two-hour performance show is jam-packed with star power on the peacock channel. NBC!

However, at the center, is the sing-off between the final four comprised of Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Vicci Martinez and Beverley McClellan.

My money is on Dia. She has been charting consistently high on iTunes and seems to be a favorite in all the media reports. I haven’t found one disagreeable article about her.

She is a creative, free spirit yet has full control of her musical destiny in her quiet, unassuming way that is just so refreshing to see each week. More important, she exudes star power.

However, I do think that Javier will give her a run for her money. Like Dia, he has such a beautiful voice and presence about him when he performs. He is a pure vocalist – relaxed and free. If Dia needs to lose to someone, I hope it is Javier.

It’s going to be an exciting couple of hours. And don’t forget, the finale results show is tomorrow night at 8:00 P.M. I am a little bummed that it’s only an hour. I though the performance show would be an hour and results show two hours. Oh well, c’est la vie!

  3. Vonnie-I don’t know where anyone is. But, it is June and I am incredibly busy at this time of year. Probably once summer actually begins in July, people will come back. In the meantime, thanks for commenting so faithfully. I will always be around the MCL building so you will never be alone. 🙂

  4. *waves* Hi, Vonnie! 🙂 I’m here. Summer’s busy, and I’m trying to get a few things rolling, but I do visit this blog regularly even when I’m not commenting.

    I completely forgot that *The Voice* would be on tonight! Lots of plans this week. My head’s spinning in lots of directions. Whoo! =P

    Anyway, I’m not too excited about the filler either. I might just end up watching the performances separately. We’ll see. I feel that the title is pretty up for grabs, but I have my personal favorite(s), of course. 😉

  5. Hi everyone! Enjoying the final four! Vocally, I feel Beverly and Javier are the best. Dia has a unique tone about her. Vicci has spunk. I am rooting for Beverly, but I suspect Dia or Javier will win. 🙂

  6. Vonnie,

    I’ve been very busy this week, and will also be for most of July. My family is visiting from out of state, and have been enjoying some fun activities. We went to a Milwaukee Brewer game, and I also went to my first Nascar race! I’ve found that it’s so much more exciting than just watching it on T.V.!!! I hope your having an awesome summer. I’ll keep in touch when I can!!

    Rosanne,

    I forgot all about The Voice being on tonight. I’ll make sure I tune in tomorrow night. I want to see Dia win as well!

  7. Hi J, Saramcvt, Anita, and MCL…

    I hear you guys…June has been busy for me as well, I must have slept walked through most of it because it is mostly a blur!!!

    Anita, have fun with your family…my family was all in for my sons graduation at the beginning of the month, we took a short family vacation after graduation to the beach, we had a great time, so enjoy! It was a bitter sweet trip, we were all missing our brother, but he was there in spirit!

    MCL…Yep! you can definitely tell that school is out for the summer, lol…that’s okay, you can relax and enjoy your summer!!! I appreciate all that you do for us all year!

    I wasn’t as impressed with Dia’s voice last night as I have been…Something about how she was inhaling that sounded kindof strange…I haven’t listened to beverly yet, I taped it so I will watch it this morning!

    Everyone have a fun and safe 4th week-end!

  9. Hello! Hello!

    It’s good to see some familiar faces…err, folks still around! I have posted on some threads but did have a problem this week without my computer. Hopefully, it is fixed.

    I have had a limited babysitting schedule now that summer is here, but love when I have all four together. My Grandson’s Little League team won their Championship series and first place. That was fun! My husband and I are planning on going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so we’ll see Lady Gaga’s “meat dress”. They are focusing on “Women in Rock” this year.

    I was also happy with either Javier or Dia winning. I loved Javier’s duet with Stevie Nicks! The others were pretty good. There are a few changes that need to be made on “The Voice”, but it was a good series. I still rank “American Idol” as my favorite!

    I hope all of you have an enjoyable summer! I’ll be watching, “So You Think You Can Dance?” Is anyone going to the tour concert?

    MCL, enjoy your beautiful Grandbabes and good health to you! Thank you for all you do!

    Hugs,
    Kari
