Vocal MasterClass Discussion For The Voice Season 13: The Knockout Rounds With Kelly Clarkson

Vocal MasterClass Discussion For The Voice Season 13: The Knockout Rounds With Kelly Clarkson

The Knockout Rounds begin this week on The Voice at 8:00 PM on Monday, October 30th and Tuesday, October 31st on NBC at 8:00 PM.

Kelly Clarkson will be adding her special brand of charm, knowledge and enthusiasm when she acts as guest coach/ mentor to the singers’ experience. 

I am loving the fact that two American Idol alumnae – Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson – are participating in this season’s program.  It just goes to show how strong American Idol has been over the years in producing veritable stars.  I have yet to see a The Voice  contestant appear as a guest mentor on American Idol

The Knockout Rounds provide another opportunity for the singers to perform as soloists before the coaches and the viewing audience. 

We shall see how the elimination process fares.  I always find it so disheartening that so many great singers face early elimination in this show. Hopefully, The Voice platform will accelerate their careers and they can enjoy even more success post –The Voice

Comments are open for business.  Go for it!  Don’t be a stranger!
