The ninth season of the American reality talent show The Voice continues this week with the final segment of the Blind Auditions. 

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani are in great form – I really love this combination of judges very much. 

So, once again, we will see some stellar vocalists come and go; however, this show – as with all of these reality shows – are platforms for launching careers that are flying below the radar. 
I am have been watching this show off and on and, as much as I love it to the moon and back, I am becoming desensitized to the wealth of talent on this stage. So many of these singers are super great and, yet, there is so little room for success in this business. 

I can see the hunger in their eyes and the passion in their soul – especially among the older singers who have been working so hard to achieve success. I only hope and pray that some of them achieve stardom because, truthfully, many of the best singers I have heard on reality shows have come from The Voice. 

The Voice airs on Monday, October 5th and Tuesday, October 6th at 8:00 PM on NBC. Tuesday’s show will feature the Best Of The Blind auditions, so that will be a great time to play “catch-up” if you have missed the Blinds over the last three weeks. 

Will you be tuning in?  Comment away when you can.
