I thought NBC’s The Voice got off to a spectacular start last week. We heard some wonderful talent but, more than that, many of these singers embraced the importance of song selection.
To enter any singing competition, one has to avoid the same old tired songs and bring a new and refreshing sound and style to the stage.
And bring it they did and, along with their fresh approach, the ratings soared as expected.
But, truth be told, I could watch Blake Shelton and Adam Levine all night. Their banter is hysterical and honest and, thankfully, not scripted.
Hopefully, Cee Lo can garner some singers for his Team – he seems to be having some connection problems with the singers. He is sort of “out there” so his ride is rockier than his fellow coaches.
At this point in time, Christina and Adam have secured the strongest singers, but Blake has not done badly. He still has a ways to go but, together with his sidekick/coach Michael Buble, I think he is going to do mighty fine during Season Three.
So, who were your favorites last week? I actually don’t have any right now because there were so many great vocalists. Hard to choose, don’t you think?
