The Voice Fall Season 2015

voiceIt’s official Blake and Gwen are dating even though a few weeks ago when rumors were flying they said they were just friends.  That goes to prove you can’t trust what two single people seen sneaking around say.  Will this tip the scales when it comes to judging?  They are now on the same team so to speak.  It will be interesting to see if Adam or Pharrell will even mention it.

At least the talent is awesome this year and it’s really getting intense as the “live” shows get near.

We also have been following X-Factor except it’s tough to follow their scheduling on Sunday and Monday at the start to Saturday and Sunday now from what we understand.  Simon Cowell is a judge there and will be coming to the US to be a judge on the next season of America’s Got Talent.  Kind of a long commute from London to New York,  but he probably has his own private jet to cruise around in.

We have nothing else to report except to give a shout out to the Northern Michigan folks.  Because I spent so much time in the Upper Peninsula I been following a sight that posts various sightseeing photos of places like Copper Harbor, the end of US 41, the copper mines, etc.  and now I want to go back and visit.  Maybe next summer.

To all the veterans out there in cyberland we say THANK YOU!

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 Voice 2015 Fall Season

voiceHere we go again and just when you think The Voice can not get any better, it does !!  The 1st week of “blind auditions” proved to this reporter that this will be the best season ever of The Voice.  (We say this at the beginning of every season.) The judges are a perfect group topped off with Gwen returning and with the addition of Pharrell back season.  They seem to be having fun and some of the banter is really funny.  Hard to believe that Adam is having a tough time forming a team and has started slowly, but Pharrell and Gwen are really pushing to get contestants, along with Blake and of course Adam.  Talent wise, WOW, this season has started with the “Concert every night” theme and we are enjoying every minute of it. Tough to pick a favorite this season, but we are still looking for the “wow” ones.

We have nothing to report except that we were converted back to following So You Think You Can Dance this past season and we enjoyed it immensely.

The Voice 2014 Season 7 – Battle Round Complete

VioceWhew!  The “Battle Rounds” are done.  We are exhausted especially from last night where we were on the remote constantly at the beginning of the show because the Giants were playing in the World Series and even thought they were ahead by 7 runs when The Voice started, he had to watch our “beloved” Giants play to the end of the game.

Okay so now that the “Battle Rounds” are over and our favorites made it through to the “Knock Out” Rounds starting next week, we need the time to update our notes and buy more munchies for next week.  The rest of this week we will be glued to the TV watching the World Series.

Hope all of you favorites made it through or were stolen and got to stay.  Have not heard from the Brandon Gang so we don’t know whats up with them.

Being a judge / mentor on the Voice must be tense.  They had some really tough decisions on the battles and basically it was a flip of the coin making the decision who won of not.

He have nothing to report right now except:

giants

The Voice Season 7 – The Battle Rounds next week

VioceWe learned a valuable lesson yesterday and that is to not post about an event ahead of time unless we absolutely know it is going to take place.  We posted that the Battle Rounds on The Voice were starting yesterday when in fact they are starting next week.  Last night were highlights of the “Blind Auditions” and some tid-bits of the judges interactions.  Since we saw all the Blind Audits it was kind of boring, but we managed to get through it.  We should have known better because basically all the vocal reality shows do the same thing and AGT takes reruns to a new level.

So now we can load up on munchies to prepare for the Battle Rounds and get our list ready for listing our favorites and get some new viewer questions ready.  In case you did not see the answer to “A cowboy rides in to town on Friday…etc”.  The answer is the cowboys horse is named Friday.  (we had to google the answer).

We have nothing to include except to ask if any of you out there in cyberland happen to see 60 minutes last Sunday?  Because we know nothing we were appalled by the segment on the cost of cancer medicines.  More to come on this subject as soon a we do some research and we NEVER do research, so that is how important we think this is.

VioceOkay folks the “Blind Auditions” are over with and now we let the “Battle Rounds” begin …next week.  Dang, we have to wait until next week and tonight is just a review of the blind auditions.  Oh well, it will give us a chance to stock up on munchies and make our list and check it twice.

We will be here cheering for some of our favorites, which is a tough choice this year because of the great talent.  It will be interesting for sure as it always is and we are looking forward to see how good Gwen and Pharell are at mentoring.  Usher was outstanding so that is who we will compare to.

Also our congratulations go out to “thehonkinggoose” for getting the answer to the “A cowboy rides in to town on Friday…etc”.  The answer being “Friday is his horse”.  WTG!  Click on the comments below to see the response.

We though for sure the “Brandon Gang” would have got this one 🙂

Some of the highlights from last night got our interest in tonight’s battle rounds, but hey, we were there anyway.  Hope your favorites make it through and we will be looking forward to the weeks ahead.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to remind all of those out there who have not registered to vote to get to it.  We have some elections coming next month.  The cheetah vote needs to get done.

The Voice Season 7 – Blind Auditions

VioceOnce again we had two night’s of a The Voice Concert and the interactions between Adam, Gwen, Pharrell, and Blake are proving to be entertaining in itself.   We were laughing at the bantering and  the crafty way the teams are being built.  Looks like the teams are filling up and the battle rounds will be starting soon.  (I wonder how we add Pharrell to our dictionary so we won’t keep getting the dreaded spell checker underline?).

It’s been a great two nights and we have nothing else to report yet except to leave you with this question, “A cowboy rides in to town on Friday, stays three nights, and leaves on Friday.  How is this possible ?”  (Leave the answer as a comment and we will report next week who posted the correct answer).
