For the musically challenged, just a little reading material here to get you up to speed on the panel ..
As well, I'll need to watch the show a bit closer, as all I've seen that would qualify as flashy production was the Prince medley done by the panel ..
The whole idea of the blind audition is to pick a team based on the singing ability / emotional connection of the contestants, regardless of age, etc .. thus, the chairs face the rear .. which, (and I know it's hard to believe) is quite engaging .. and helps to turn "The Voice" into an actual competition, rather than a popularity / beauty contest ..
Of course, those that prefer the shallow, script driven shows populated by a panel that consists of an aging, has been Rock Star that is transforming himself into a comedian, or a self made Diva that was out of the public view for many years, or even a shallow, self important talent scout that used to actually judge ... well, "The Voice" may not be for you ..Cee Lo Green ..
