The Voice: Season 12, Top 12, 4/24/17

April 25th, 2017 · No Comments

As the countdown to the twelfth Voice champion began with the top twelve contestants singing for votes on Monday night, Shania Twain made an appearance as a celeb guest judge/advisor. I’m not sure if she was just for the top twelve, or if she’s going to be a fifth judge for the remainder of the season. Maybe […]

The Amazing Race: Season 29, Africa (4th Leg) and Norway (5th Leg), 4/21/17

April 23rd, 2017 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Although strangers being formed into teams has led some viewers to describe the latest Amazing Race as a “blind date” season, it’s more like a “make new friends” season. The teams appear to be primarily bonding over friendship, not romance–but there are a few that do resemble disastrous blind dates. Relationship troubles are becoming more […]

The Voice: Season 12, Team Blake and Team Alicia, 4/17/17

April 18th, 2017 · No Comments

Then each judge (or coach, if you prefer) selects one more singer to keep. In this way the field is reduced to twelve singers, who will […]

The Amazing Race: Season 29, 3rd Leg, 4/13/17

April 18th, 2017 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Warning:  double blind U-turn ahead!  On the third leg of The Amazing Race, Season 29, the first opportunity for teams to U-turn other teams comes into play. It’s usually used by one team who’s unhappy with another, or else by a team that needs to avoid being in last place. Sometimes the team that gets […]

The Voice: Season 12, Final Knockouts, 4/10/17

April 11th, 2017 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Sometimes on The Voice, how popular a contestant may be could be as much of a factor as their voice. So when we’re wondering about why the judges (coaches) make some of the decisions they do, maybe that’s why. The final seven knockouts were performed Monday, and Alicia was the only judge who could […]

The Amazing Race: Season 29, 2nd Leg, 4/6/17

April 9th, 2017 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Leg two of The Amazing Race almost always means one team down, ten to go, and that’s the situation on Season 29. The ten remaining teams leave the pit stop in Panama City with their next clue telling them to fly to Sao Paulo, Brazil. The teams are scattered between six flights: 1st–Vanck/Ashton, […]

by Lyn Jensen What are the coaches (judges) thinking? Season 12 of The Voice has now seen two nights featuring nine knockout rounds between singers, and on Monday night alone we saw at least five bad decisions, starting with the very first pairing: 1.  Team Alicia, Chris Blue vs. Quizz Swanigan:  Alicia says she’s pairing big […]

The Amazing Race: Season 29 Premiere, 3/30/17

April 1st, 2017 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Let’s enjoy Season 29 of The Amazing Race while we can, since we’re not likely to see Season 30 for another year or more. I don’t know if I can post recaps of every episode, but I’m posting my recap of the premiere and then I’ll see how the rest of the season unfolds. […]
