|The first night of the Battle Round showcases big voices and bigger hair. - Mar 06, 2012|
|The sight of Cee Lo Green wearing a Red Baron costume, complete with World War I era flying medal, can only mean one thing. The Battle Round of The Voice is upon us! And so it began last night with six incredibly drawn-out vocal sparring matches. Not just between the contestants, but their celebrity mentors as well. Nothing says "battle" like Jewel and Lionel Richie training aspiring artists to belt out "The Power of Love."|
Battle #1: Tony Lucca vs. Chris Cauley (Team Adam)
Alanis Morissette had Tony Lucca's back going into his showdown with fellow husky-voiced busker Cau...
|Forget Idol - here's to loving The Voice - Mar 07, 2012|
|The love affair with American Idol is so over, thanks to The Voice. At least, that's how it is for me.|
Both shows are airing on TV in the United States and in Singapore.
But The Voice, as many critics have pointed out, is a worthy contender for the talent-search throne as it becomes increasingly popular, with Season 2 of the show beginning to draw more 18- to 49-year-old viewers in the US than Idol's 11th outing.
The Voice - which got its start in the Netherlands before being developed for America last year - is quite simply the better show.
It features judges Adam Levine from Maroon 5; hi...
|Apparently, we're a shockingly talented country with incredibly lousy television - Mar 06, 2012|
|How else can you explain the great TV singing-contest disconnect? In their comfortable studio seats (some spinnable, some not), the judges on Fox's American Idol and NBC's The Voice hear nothing but an unbroken parade of "magical," "amazing," "beautiful," "perfect," "best-ever" singers — all of them, as Voice's otherwise purposeless host Carson Daly told us Monday, "incredible artists."|
Whereas at home, most of us generally hear one or two promising talents who, with training and guidance, might develop into popular performers, surro...
|Why The Voice is hitting the high notes more than American Idol this season - Mar 07, 2012|
|The Voice is suddenly on a hot streak — the kind of streak reserved for lightning-in-a-bottle pop-cultural phenoms that elevate hope and talent over hype and humiliation. The kind of streak that suddenly threatens to cast American Idol in the shade.|
How is The Voice better than American Idol? Let me count the ways.
• The Voice has coaches, not judges. Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, and country vocalist Blake Shelton have a vested interest in the success of their 12 chosen team members.
• The Voice auditions focus on performing ability; American Idol auditio...
|'The Voice' recap: The battle rounds begin - Mar 06, 2012|
|et the battles begin! With the blind auditions at its back, "The Voice" pivoted to focus on the battle rounds, in which each of the four coaches –- Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton -– pairs up members of his or her team of 12 to go head to head in a duet, bringing in celeb mentors Alanis Morrisette and Robin Thicke (Levine), Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert (Shelton), Babyface and Ne-Yo (Green), and Jewel and Lionel Richie (Aguilera) to help along the way.|
Then, two by two, song by song, the paired-off contestants square off, the competition perhaps ...
|Judges start to form their teams for the live finals and send six hopefuls home - Mar 05, 2012|
|Let the battles begin!|
With the blind auditions completed and the judges' 12-person teams in place, the Battle Rounds began Monday night (March 5) on "The Voice," with teammates facing off by doing duets. In the Battle Rounds, judges Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green pick a song for two of their team members to take into the ring for a sing-off and then must decide which performer bested the other and gets to stay and advance to the finals.
Over the next four weeks, Teams Xtina, Adam, Blake and Cee Lo will be cut in half, leaving 24 finalists to compet...
|Lionel Richie offers advice, helps to stage powerful battle round on 'The Voice' - Mar 06, 2012|
|Maybe it's the Lionel Richie influence. |
Maybe Christina Aguilera really knows how to pick her team members.
Or maybe singer Jesse Campbell is ... just that good.
Whatever the reason, a match-up on Team Xtina provided a powerful battle round on Monday's episode of "The Voice."
Alabama native Richie, a guest mentor on the NBC reality series, offered some advice to Campbell -- a soul singer and single dad from Chicago -- and helped him to ace this part of the singing contest.
But Campbell faced tough competition from gospel artist Anthony Evans, as the two faced off on Alicia Ke...
