Vocal Masterclass Discussion For Season Three Of The Voice: Third Week Of Blind Auditions

20120917-150732.jpgThis competition is heating up, isn’t it?

NBC’s The Voice has discovered some pretty spectacular and unique vocal talent. Almost overwhelming, actually.

Last week’s show was on fire with talent and all the judges/coaches have to be happy with their Team Members thus far. This is going to be one mighty fight to the end.

Tune in Monday and Tuesday at 8:00 P.M. and watch the talent unfold. And be entertained by those wacky, yet knowledgeable, judges.

It is a fun, refreshing show that has noticeably hit its stride this season. Three’s a charm for sure!

All that’s missing are your comments so please feel free add your opinions about this week’s show in the comments section.

  1. I see that ‘The Voice’ has its own ‘Heejun Han’ this season.


  2. They have so many interesting singers this year it’s going to be hard to sort them out in the later rounds. I enjoyed the music teacher that did such a good Stevie Nicks cover. I hope to hear her sing something that doesn’t sound so much like someone else in the future, but that was an excellent performance. The young Soul singer toward the end had a good feel for classic Soul music but I’m not sure his voice has the nuance for it yet. I’ll be looking forward to hearing more from him. The last lady that went with Blake should be interesting as well.


  3. Suzanna Choffel is the music teacher who did “Landslide” that I mentioned earlier. It turns out that she has a quite a few original songs on You Tube and albums for sale on iTunes. I wanted to hear what “she” sounds like rather than the Stevie cover that she performed for the blind audition. She has a Reggie infused Indie sound ranging from Jazz to Funk with a tone similar to Norah Jones. Now that’s a little different. I haven’t heard much in the way of covers from her though. Given that she is pretty well developed as an artist and seems to be a veteran performer and considering that there have been quirky female singers in the two prior finales, I think there is a good possibility that she may make the final round this year.


  4. `Yesterday, I watched all the shows this season of “The Voice” and there are so many terrific singers on the show. I have really enjoyed the show and it has retained consistent ratings. Two of the shows I rewatched. “The X-Factor” bores me. I like “The Voice” so much better.
