First, I'd like to thank all of you that contributed to the thread this season .. while we all may not agree all the time, music is subjective and all opinions are valid (usually..
Join me at the 4th Season thread and weigh in your thoughts on our two new mentors ..
I have the promo video posted, which I thought was pretty good ..
This season was for me, an incredible ride .. watching these folks progress and develop over the months has been a great journey .. and I believe this has been the best season so far .. as corny as it sounds, I developed a connection (at least as much as you can with a TV show) .. to many of the contestants and even more so with the mentors .. it has been great to see the show mature and I'm hoping Shakira and Usher keep the good vibe going ..
The final sing off and the finale .. ?? I can't really fault St Nick, Terry or Cass .. they all did a good job and America has spoken .. I hoped St Nick would win, but I knew it was a long shot .. good luck to all of them in their future career .. if CeeLo stays true to form, Nick will have a good shot at some degree of commercial sucess ..
Highlights last night .. man, oh man, where to begin .. ?? the funny clips on CeeLo were great .. the Frampton duet with Terry was excellent and I'll bet Terry was simply in awe to do it .. Nicks selection of the two Fire themed songs was not his best of the season, but I have to agree with what was said .. he just decided to let it all go and do something that he wanted to do .. I'm sure Nick felt at this point the win was out of reach .. he should have figured out a way to change tempo and slip "Light My Fire" in there somewhere ..
Myself, I'll miss CeeLo and even Xtina next season, but, I'll bet we have a guest appearance of them ..
I don't want to sound like I'm gushing too much here, but I like the show and it has restored some of my drive as a guitarist and vocalist .. which is pretty rare at my age ..
