Did y'all watch The Voice last night? I have to be honest, I have so much in my DVR on Mondays, that I'm going to have to save it for later in the week. That said, I can't wait to see what I anticipate being a much more fun and positive camaraderie among the judges. Don't get me wrong, I'll miss Cee Lo Green, but I think that Shakira and Usher will be great additions alongside Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. As for Xtina? No comment.
There is something about this competition that I truly adore. It's equal parts the design of listening without looking and the witty back and forth among the judges that makes it all the more entertaining. Add in incredible talent, and it's a hit. Of course, there is the always hilariously honest Blake to keep things in check, and he's dishing on the two newbies.
Christina, showing off her recent weight loss, walked the red carpet with Carson Daly, Blake Shelton and new coachUsher, as well as other celebrities and a few past season's contestants. Adam Levine and Shakira were absent from the festivities.
Season 4 kicks off on Monday, March 25th. Are you tuning in?
"This is The Voice!" I don't know what it is lately, but I can't help but get these awful theme songs stuck in my head. Don't get me wrong, I love the premise behind NBC's answer to American Idol (and watching Adam Levine and Blake Shelton isn't too shabby either!), but couldn't they have come up with a better hook? It is a music competition after all!
The show is gearing up yet again to premiere in March, and this time aroundCee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are taking a break. Good riddance to Xtina and her witchy ways! Replacing the duo will be Usher and Shakira, and while I'll miss Cee Lo, I think these two will be a fun, easy mix with Adam and Blake.
In a recent interview, the four judges, old and new, discuss what we can expect from the upcoming season. Adam admits that he underestimated Shakira's spunk, and Usher, who is responsible for giving us The Biebs, reveals that finding new talent is more difficult than he expected. The blind auditions have all been taped, but the live portion of the show will resume taping in the spring.
The Voice mentor Cee Lo Green stopped by the Rachael Ray Show to dish on his job, his pets and his co-stars. We have a sneak peek at the interview, which airs today, October 22nd.
CeeLo on his pets Perfect and Lady: “Perfect is at home in LA and I’m going to have to start working out travel provisions for the animals because wherever I’m at people are always asking about Perfect or Lady.”
CeeLo on leaving “The Voice": “We are going to take a hiatus for season 4, but we are going to be back. Some people don’t realize that it was something that’s agreed upon and amicable. We’ll be back.“
