Just a reminder – I am on vacation until the end of March and having a great time thank you very much. So, if I happen to be MIA, it is because I have no idea what day it is. Yes, on vacation, every day is Sunday.

Therefore, that being said, I did catch the last part of The Voice last evening and breathed a sigh of relief when I realized that my boy, Sawyer Fredericks, did not yet compete in the Battle Rounds. Also, I don’t think he will be on this evening either, but, then again, who knows?  The trailer did not feature him but did feature some pretty amazing moments from other contestants. It should be a great evening. 

 The Voice began the first week of Battle Rounds  on Monday, February March 9th and continues on Tuesday, March 10th on NBC at 8:00 PM. 

 And don’t forget to download The Voice iPhone App here or the iPad App here.

By doing so, you can cast your votes nice and early once the live shows begin in April, thus ensuring that your favorite moves on in the competition. 

 Comments are now open for business. Fill me in on the highlights and lowlights of Tuesday’s show. I will check back later.
