Okay everyone.  I am back after a lovely vacation. I really did think I was going to blog while on vacation but warm weather and good times sort of erased every good intention I had of fulfilling that promise. 

However, I have noticed, via Facebook, that the performers have been as exceptional as ever and the mentors and judges are even more so.   

We have reached the final week of The Knockout Rounds. I won’t even pretend to know who is performing.  I haven’t watched this season at all.  I want to be surprised. However , it is kind of neat to actually watch singers without bias or favouritism. 

The Voice airs Monday April 10th and Tuesday April 11th on NBC at 8:00 PM.  Please share your thoughts in the comments section.  I promise I will interact.
