The Voice: Season 8, Top Ten, Air Date 4/20/15

April 21st, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen As The Voice moves through its voting rounds, the judges do double duty as coaches.  Blake Shelton always ends up with a country-flavored team, and Adam Levine’s team varies between talent with classic mainstream appeal and some misfit outside-the-box types.  The remaining teams always seem to favor R&B and mainstream pop.  This […]

The Voice: Season 8, Top 12, 4/13/15

April 14th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen What an evening of stupendous performances!  Collectively the top twelve Voice contestants rocked like Coachella last night, with many of them singing classic rock hits. The front-runners gave performances that ranked with their season’s best, and the few weak links simply showed the separation in the field.  Evenings of music like this–it’s why we […]

April 9th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Last night (Wednesday) we found out which twelve singers are going into the final rounds–when viewers vote–on season 8 of The Voice.  As on previous seasons, the judges (aka coaches and team leaders) had to cut their teams from five to three each. Two selections were based on viewers’ votes and the third was a judge’s choice. Team […]

The Voice: Season 8, Semi-finals, Team Adam, Team Christina, 4/7/15

April 8th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen On The Voice, the semi-finals are called “the playoffs,” keeping with the format’s resemblance to the brackets of a sports tournament. Last night the five singers on Team Adam and the five singers on Team Christina performed for America’s vote: 1.  Tonya Boyd-Cannon of Team Adam:  Powerhouse singers like Boyd-Cannon don’t usually win these TV contests.  […]

The Voice: Season 8, Three Knockouts, 3/24/15

March 25th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Last night The Voice showed three knockouts–where the judges compare two contestants’ performances and send one home, unless another judge “steals” to place the contestant on another team.  I disagreed with every decision.  Maybe the judges were thinking too far ahead–they looked to be stocking up with some easy decisions for future […]

March 24th, 2015 · No Comments

Now season 8 of The Voice enters the knockout round, with the judges once again matching up contestants and halving their teams.  Each judge only gets one steal, meaning they need to figure out which one singer is a must-have. First knockout:  Team Christina, Ashley Morgan vs. Sonic Christina must choose between her two female pop vocalists. […]

March 18th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Season 8 of The Voice completed its battle rounds last night, the flaws in its bracket-type format showing, but at least a dozen great singers are still on the board. We saw three featured battles, while three more were squeezed into a montage: 1.  Christina pairs two of her remaining R&B singers, Jeremy Gaynor […]

March 17th, 2015 · No Comments

by Lyn Jensen Cutting through six duets in the battle rounds of The Voice Season 8, last night, knowing the judges will have to cut again in the knockout rounds, and wondering if they’re thinking that far ahead: 1.  Pharrell pairs two of his R&B-inspired pop princesses, one black girl and one white girl, Bria Joynee and […]

The Voice: Season 8, Battle Rounds, Air Date 3/10/15

March 11th, 2015 · No Comments

Format-wise, The Voice is like a sporting tournament. The coaches (judges) picking their teams resembles setting the brackets for March Madness, except there’s no seeding.  Then the singers are advanced (or not) though two rounds, the field being roughly halved each time. That means getting to the voting rounds is largely dependent on which pairs get matched up. The […]
