The Voice 2015 Fall Season — The Knockout’s

voiceNow we know why they call these shows the “The Knockouts”, it’s because as a avid viewer we are just plain knocked out by the concert level vocals by the contestants over the past two nights.  WOW!  We are sure glad we are not judges.

By the way did you see Blake, Adam, Gwen, and Pharrell on the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show Tuesday night?  If you missed it we are sure you can catch it on YouTube, it was a roar watching Blake sing Y.M.C.A.

This season has certainly not disappointed us, in fact we think it’s way better than any other season, but then again, we say that every season 🙂

We are wondering if the car pool crowd is still watching? Have not heard anything, but they are a fairly quite bunch anyway 🙂

We have also been watching the X Factor – England, but it’s on such an odd schedule, we have missed many episodes.  Sunday and Monday shows and without a doubt Monday is The Voice night and there is no way we are watching the X Factor other than recording it on the DVR.  Then we play catch up because we have recordings from the weekend, and of course Tuesday is out because The Voice is on that night also.  Oh well, the X factor does not get very interesting until the “Live Shows”.

We have nothing else to report except to wonder how many folks have quit smoking recently.  If you used our advise from a few weeks ago have you noticed that it feels like a load has been removed now that you don’t have to worry if you have enough cigarettes? No more searching the entire house, rifling through all your old coats sweaters, drawers, and dress suits looking for a smoke.  No more needing to run to the 7-11 in the middle of the night to get a pack of smokes because your search came up empty.  No more planning an evening out based on if the restaurant has a smoking area and no more yellow junk on the paper towel when you clean your car windows.

The X-Factor 2013 week #2

Xfactor After the huge win by Oracle Team USA in the Americas Cup and after all the partying we managed to watch The X-Factor last night.  Last week shows provided a few “WOWS” from the contestants, but last night was basically a “Ho-Hum”.  With Brittany and L.A. Reid gone, replaced by  Kelly Rowland and Paulina Robino, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell  have returned.  Yeah good ole Demi who last year mentored her group right in to oblivion.  Demi as a mentor / judge is in our opinion is the worst reality show judge on this planet.

Even though it was Brittany’s first year last year we thought she was one of the best judges / mentors we have seen in a very long time.  She will be missed.

They have not chosen which group goes with which judge / mentor this year and our sympathy goes out ahead of time to the group that gets assigned to Demi.

Based on what we have seen so far this year no matter which group gets assigned to Simon, the winner will come from that group.  Demi will probably repeat last years results, but then again, the other two new judge / mentors might do even worse, if that’s possible.

Most of last nights events were the three ladies going “ga-ga” over each guy who auditioned.  “Ho-Hum” how boring.  It’s sad when a show loses focus and the judges become the focus, when folks, the point is about the contestants and their dreams about following their dreams.

We must admit, half way through the 2nd hour we were so bored we switched over to the Food Channel and watched “Chopped”.  Yes folks, we would rather watch chef’s flinging mashed potato’s at each other.  (They don’t really fling anything, but it would be fun if they did).

Actually the Food Channel has some pretty good shows.  Chopped is our favorite, but Cupcake Wars is pretty good, and Iron Chef America is down right awesome.

We have nothing else to report at this time.

The “X” Factor USA Season 1 – Top 11 Results

Even though the audience voted they don’t decide who goes home based on their vote.  The bottom two contestant vote getters “Sing for their lives” to the judges and the judges decide who goes home.  If the majority of the judges (3) all point to the same contestant, they go home.  If the judges tie then the contestant with the lowest votes goes home.

We really like this format because we have seen on some other shows of this nature where only the audience decides who goes home and there have been times where it was a really bad choice.  I think having the judges make the decision makes total sense especially on The “X” Factor where the judges are the best in the music business and they know what they are looking for.

Tonight “Stereo Hogzz” went home.  The  “Stereo Hogzz” should be proud that they made the top 11 and we say to them, “Let nothing stand in your way as you continue your journey to complete your dream”.

We have nothing else to report except that we agree with the comment Paula made last week about groups not connecting easily with viewing audiences.  We completely agree with that statement especially the groups on this show this season.  Lakoda Rayne better turn super star as quick as possible because right now we think they will be leaving next week.
