    Default The Voice

    Pretty interesting concept. Not sure how it was going to work out with the judges but I really like it. Some decent talent so far. But the best act had to be the kid from Texas named Ty Austin. They don't show his face during the intro. They just show this skinny kid with Nikes and no laces, purple skinny jeans. Then they show his parents. Dad is a big ol' white cowboy. During the intro he explains most people don't know he can sing and are surprised when he does. Says he's a nerd that likes to read science fiction and that he's Mormon. Then he starts singing and gets Cee-lo and Adam Levine to turn around they finally show him and he's a brother with a giant afro. It was awesome.

    So his name is Tje, pronounced Ty. Born in Hawaii and adopted at birth by Mormon parents from Texas. He's the 4th of 11 kids. Calls his sound neo-soul, afro-Hawaiian. Gotta support my tribe.

    Here's his website:

    Chachi made me watch this show tonight. I fought it because i wanted to watch the season finale of Top Shot. That being said, i liked it. I thought the fat kid from tejas was the best talent.

    She also predicted that you would start this thread .

    I really liked him. I also liked Javier Colon. Out of all the girls I really liked the second one (she reminds me of one of the wizards on Waverly Place and now she's on Lemonade Mouth lol). I was surprised at how funny Adam and Blake were throughout the show. FN wasn't very happy when I made him watch it, but I think he's a fan now.

    Stupid news canceled The Biggest Loser tonight.

    Tell me you didn't say "what the" when they finally showed Tje?

    I liked the big kid too. Funny that Adam didn't know the song.

    My dark horse and favorite I think is the 16 year old girl. With some coaching I think she could be really special.

    I thought it was cool that Cee-Lo recognized Frenchie. That would be pretty cool.

    I saw that his name was spelled Tje, and said, "Why on earth would his parents do that?!" Then they spanned out and showed the fro and it all made sense.

    I was not surprised to see you started this thread, btw.

    I'm catching up with this show in Hulu after a cancelled appointment this morning.

    It's an intriguing concept. I gave up on Idol five years ago. I don't typically have much interest in songster-specific reality shows. I really like how the blind audition plays into the dynamic. It's also very interesting how the participants get to pick their coach if multiple coaches want to work with the singer.

    Good stuff.

    Gay mormon kid on reality tv has almost become cliche. Also the kid is 20 and looks older than I do.

    It seems to be the way to make "The Short List", and these kids know it. Outs himself on TV while his Dad does not know and disses him...

    Gidget said almost the exact same thing. Also, the "my dad doesn't know, but I guess he does now" part was a bit uncomfortable.

    Decent night. I wasn't blown away by anyone really. Nakia was interesting. He was like John Belushi meets Joaquin Phoenix but gay. Dia of Meg and Dia was on and made it. I like her voice.

    Anybody still watching this. I have missed the last 3 or so weeks but some of tonight's performances were awesome. Some really great songs were sung.

    We like it. Some excellent performances almost across the board tonight.

    Apparently, my MIL taught her in kindergarten. She also tried to get her to sing in 1997 at my BIL's mission farewell, but she declined because of nerves/shyness, according to the family scuttlebutt.

    I don't know much about this show, but two weeks ago I saw a country cover of Robert Palmer that was absolutely abysmal. I mean, painful.

    The Voice went from intriguing to terrible in a hurry. The fact that the judges give zero criticism to horrible contenstants makes the show un-watchable.

    I think Dia is good too but she stole that version of Kanye Wests "Heartless". I heard her say she came up with it herself and I know she didn't. The first person to do it was this girl Mia who was part of a show on MTV. Later someone on American Idol did it.

    I'm disappointed that this thread is not about Ultravox's terrific album.

    I agree with Junkie. This show had promise, but I have stopped watching. Adam Levine has been the most disappointing. I actually like Maroon 5. But he's said at least 2 or 3 times when critiquing contestants that he has never heard the song they were singing before. That blew me away and I actually lost respect for him. He said he had never heard God Bless the Broken Road for example and the other was a Pink song.

    And both of those people hacked it from someone else. The Fray and William Fitsimmons both had cover versions out before either of them, IIRC.

    Surprised to see you didn't comment on Javier and Adam's duet tonight. You would approve.

    I watched the show tonight. Dia's original song was by far the best. Nikki and Cee-lo's performance though stole the show. Cee-lo, as Gidget put it is a 21st century Meatloaf. Adam and Javier, meh.

    I liked Dia's original the best too. I really liked Bev and Christina's duet...I agree with Gidge. Btw, it's Vicci, not Nikki.

    Anybody catching season 2 of this? There have been some powerhouses so far, as well as a few oddball vocalists (I'm thinking specifically of Erin Martin's performance of "Hey There Delilah). I think the quality of performer is a bit better this season.

    I am excited to see Jordis Unga again. I thought she was the best contestant on that rockstar show with Dave Navarro back in the day.
