An Intense Challenge Leaves One Team Without a Trainer Tonight on The Biggest Loser

October 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

“THE BIGGEST LOSER” “THE DROP” 10/23/2014 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) (Thursday)

INTENSE POOL CHALLENGE LEAVES ONE TEAM WITHOUT THEIR TRAINER FOR THE WEEK – A challenge at the beginning of the week causes quite a splash as the red, white and blue teams have to hold a certain percentage of their body weight to keep their trainers from falling into a pool. The team that drops their trainer first loses them for the week, while the team that drops their trainer second will only have their trainer at the last chance workout. While the two teams without their trainers try to rise to the challenge at the ranch, Bob Harper tries to get his two eliminated contestants to work together as a team at Comeback Canyon. And one contestant takes a trip away from the ranch and gives her trainer a glimpse of her “glory days.” Then a weigh-in full of surprises – including one player reaching “One-derland” – ends with one contestant falling below the dreaded red line, but thrilled to get a second chance at Comeback Canyon.

The Voice: Season 7, Final Night of Battle Rounds, 10/21/14

October 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

Judges finished cutting their teams from twelve to eight (six battle winners plus two steals each) on The Voice.  Let’s find out which singers are still around:

1.  Pharrell presents his last duo:  19-year-old aspiring teen idol Ricky Manning against Berklee music student Brittany Butler.  He assigns them “On Broadway,” a song that’s been subject to multiple interpretations since the sixties.  Manning’s probably the better singer overall but Butler can bring jazzier runs and scats.  Pharrell’s decision most likely involves balancing his teen-appeal singers against his jazz-flavored artists.  During judges’ comments, Adam and Blake both say they prefer Manning.  Pharrell does pick Ricky Manning, saying he shows the most improvement.  Gwen–the only judge who can steal–passes over Butler, who starts crying.  Pharrell and Gwen both go backstage to comfort her.

2.  Blake has several female vocalists left to pair up.  He assigns Reagan James and Kensington Moore Lorde’s recent hit, “Team.”  He explains, “She’s such a stylist but you guys are stylists.”  Reagan, who’s only 15, has a voice similar to Kelly Clarkson’s.  Kensington got only a brief clip in the audition rounds, so this is the audience’s first opportunity to hear her at length.   There’s some suspense when Reagan can’t attend a rehearsal.  Blake’s guest advisors are the entire country vocal foursome, Little Big Town.  (Their big hit is the suggestive “Pontoon.”)  One of the group members, Kimberly, understudies for Reagan.  Once Reagan recovers from her bout of ill health, she continues in the competition.  She–surprisingly–has the more mature-sounding voice.  Gwen comments she prefers her.  Blake prefers Reagan, too, and keeps her.  Maybe we’ll get to hear her do a Kelly Clarkson song.

Next comes a composite of several duets:  (1)  Blake matches his remaining country singer, Alison Bray, against the raspy-voiced Latina, Fernanda Bosch, and keeps Alison.   (2)  Gwen  matches her female reggae vocalist, Anita Antoinette against Myra Alvarez (who we barely saw) and keeps Anita.  (3)  For Gwen’s final battle round, she puts two more female vocalists together:  Gianna Solvado vs. Brianna Salaz.  She keeps Brianna.

3.  Final battle of this segment:  Adam pairs his last group–his two female belters, Beth Spangler vs. Mia Pfirrman (pronounced “Firman”).  They’re both brassy types–think of a rough-draft Barbra Streisand.  He assigns them, “I turn to You,” a Christina Aquilera song.  His guest advisor, Stevie Nicks, comments, “It’s a very hard song to sing.”  After the performance, Blake calls the two contestants, “a couple of divas up there.”  Pharrell says he’d choose Beth.  Gwen says she’d choose Mia.  Adam agonizes but picks Mia.  (Maybe the thought of sending her to Team Gwen had something to do with his decision.)  Gwen’s coy and teasing, but she steals Beth at the moment she’s giving her a goodbye/hello hug. 

So each judge’s team of eight is finalized, and now it’s time for the next cuts–the knockout rounds.  Starting next week, judges have to narrow their teams down to five each.  Who will get through?

The Voice: Season 7, More Battle Rounds, 10/20/14

October 21st, 2014 · No Comments

Having battle rounds early on The Voice each season forces the judges to carefully consider their teams.  Do they put up the best against the best, and send one home?  Or do they put very different artists together and call the result based on how they want to present their final field?

1.  Adam pairs two of his singers from the same genre:  Kelli Douglas vs. Damian (no last name), both black R&B vocalists.  He assigns them “Knock on Wood,” and they appear fairly evenly matched.  Adam picks Damian, keeping one of his male R&B vocalists, and nobody steals Kelli.

2.  Gwen pairs two of her mainstream pop vocalists, Jewel soundalike Jessie Pitts against aspiring teen idol Ryan Sill. She assigns them a contemporary song, “I Need Your Love.”  Gwen picks Ryan, but Blake pushes his button and steals Jessie.  Let’s hope he assigns her a Jewel song.

3.  Blessing Offor, who invites comparisons to Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, has to be one of the top contenders of this season.  While looking at Team Pharrell, I wondered who could be paired against the power-voiced blind R&B vocalist.  I guessed Griffin (who sounds like Michael Buble) was the best choice (or possibly Beyoncé-influenced  Elijah Rene).  Does the judge want an heir apparent to Charles and Wonder, or does he want an heir apparent to Buble?  However, Griffin and Rene were matched against others, and Pharrell matches Offor against 15-year-old Kariz Trinidad.  When she auditioned, Pharrell declared he wanted her on his record label, so she appears to be one of his favorites.  Offor is old-school, while Trinidad is more of a contemporary teen-idol type.  Pharrell gives them a Stevie Wonder song, “Do I Do.”  Although Offor’s plainly the better singer, Pharrell picks Trinidad, wanting to keep his teen.  Adam wants to steal Offor–so does Gwen–but Offor goes to Team Adam.  Which judge will work out better with which singer should keep fans watching.

4.  Adam pairs his remaining black R&B vocalist, Ethan Butler, against David Cook soundalike Matt McAndrews.  He gives them Coldplay’s “Yellow,” which they do as an unplugged version, playing acoustic guitars.  Adam admits, “Putting you two together was never a good idea.”  Butler has the more powerful voice, but Adam picks McAndrews, citing “something intangible.”  What McAndrews needs is a David Cook song–will he get a chance to do one?

5.  Blake matches one of his country female vocalists, Taylor Brashears, against a genre-defying singer, Bree Fondacaro.  He assigns them Linda Ronstadt’s “You’re No Good,” a song that can be performed as country, R&B, or rock.  The choice is between Fondacaro’s quirky, smoky voice and Brashears’ pure tones.  During judges’ comments afterwards,  Gwen doesn’t like the way either of them did the song.  Pharrell and Adam both say they’d choose Brashears.  Blakc does keep his hard country singer Brashears, and nobody steals Fondacaro

6.  Final pairing of the night–Pharrell puts Toya Jones up against  Danica Shirey.  Both are soulful-voiced women, and their song is Beyoncé’s “Halo.”  This turns into one of those duets where the singers try to out-sing each other’s high notes, and it just sounds like screaming.  Pharrell surprisingly picks Danica.  Adam must have been surprised by the choice, too, because he immediately pushes his “steal” button.  Gwen joins in but Toya Jones goes to Team Adam. 

Tonight brings the final battle rounds for this season (unless there’s some twist coming) and Gwen’s the only judge left who can steal a singer.  Some of this season’s more promising singers have yet to appear.
