Last week’s premiere episodes of The Voice Season Six unveiled some incredible talent.. It was a strong beginning to what I am sure will be an exciting and entertaining season.

These four judges – Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher – work extremely well together and the chemistry between all four is genuine.

I don’t know how NBC is flushing out the talent, but it is obvious that they have a great talent scouting team in place. They are finding singular artists of all ages who, yes, may have enjoyed a great level of success prior to The Voice, but, yet, they are still flying under the radar.

The Voice provides them with a strong and supportive platform to elevate and strengthen their careers.

Indeed, former The Voice alumnus, Judith Hill, has been forging her way in a big way post The Voice and making vocal waves on other platforms.

On Sunday evening, she basked in the glow of an Oscar win for the high-grossing documentary, “20 Feet From Stardom, which chronicles the stories of phenomenal singers who sing back-up for major stars. What a great idea for a film. I cannot wait to get my hands – and eyes and ears – on it!

So,The Voice is slowly becoming a strong impetus for a singer’s ongoing success, providing them means and opportunity to rise above the pack.

So, who will be discovered this week? Well, tune in to NBC at 8:00 PM on Monday, March 3rd and Tuesday, March 4th to find out!

Comments are now open for business!!

  1. Don’t forget that Bates Hotel’s second season starts tonight! My DVR is working overtime.


  2. Oh my goodness. Thank you Gene. I almost forgot. My favorite!


  3. Another nail biter. This show is so well done. It will be the next “Breaking Bad” in terms of quality of production, suspense, fan following, awards and re-run success in syndication. I don’t understand the time setting though. It’s supposed to be the prelude to “Physco” yet it is set in the present time. I just hope the sweet little girl with the O2 tank doesn’t take a shower at the Hotel…

    Did you see the after show following Bates Hotel? I was surprised the actor playing Norman is British. It appears that they already have the whole season in the can.

    This portion of the Voice seems so scripted and pre-planned to me. A few decent singers are emerging each round but even though it can be entertaining, it is very tiring to watch.


  4. I’ve been so very impressed with the talent this season! I think the mix of ringers and non-ringers is great. And the chemistry between the judges is fantastic. There’s one thing though about Blake that’s getting to me. His reaction to any other judge who turns their chair for the same contestant he does is realllllly getting old!!
