Those ratings for last night seem about right. For me it's Survivor first (if I'm far enough ahead to not watch commercials) , then The Voice until I'm far enough ahead so we can watch Modern Family without commercials, then back to The Voice. The X factor we'll watch, but not until there's nothing else on the DVR.

Man I've gotta say it again...Nicholas David has an amazing voice!
post #244 of 489
I called every single America's vote save and every mentor save except for one. I thought America would pick Cody and Ceelo would save Nicholas. The reverse was true. I'm apathetic about Melanie still being involved, but I there was no doubt Adam would save her.

Amanda Brown is absolutely amazing, as is Nicholas. Agreed on Melanie - that is one weird voice - IMO she should never have made it onto the show.

She should sing "Brand New Key" by...Melanie, of course. [circa 1971]

Scary thing (for me) is I can still hear that song in my head...
post #247 of 489
Yep, the choices were pretty obvious. I was not surprised that Adam saved Melanie.

Blake's choice to save Michaela was excellent. I was surprised she was not a fan save.

I was, at first, happy that Christina saved Adrianna, but then Adrianna kept on with the OMG OMG OMG, and I just wanted to reach into the tv and slap her. eek.gif I feel a little sorry for De'borah, as she's got an amazing voice, but um, really, the Steve Urkel look has got to go, individuality or not.

Once Ceelo got past Nicholas and Treyvon, it was pretty easy to pick Cody - the other two just weren't even in the contest.

Really telling to see how the rejects handled it. Liz Davis was clearly ticked, but Jocelyn was quite the level-headed girl with a smile on her face - hoping to see more from her through other avenues.

It is amazing how much filler junk you can cut out of the show when you watch playback on the dvr!

Thursday numbers-3.0 for The Voice on Thursday and 2.3 for X Factor. The singing shows have been dropping a lot of viewers since the live shows started. This demonstrates 1. there are only so many viewers for an average night of broadcast television nowadays, and 2. there are only so many viewers for these singing shows. Add up the two numbers and you have the number of viewers that Idol was pulling in a every week a couple of years ago. Not so bad if you look at it that way, but it also means that the profits are being split on shows that probably have much higher budgets...

It looked like Adam and Christina were not happy with the audience choices, and had to go with alternate plans.

That Jermain Paul song and performance were both really bad. He would have never won with that crap last season. The single isn't even in the iTunes top 200, even though some current "Voice" contestants have 2 songs listed.

I think next week could be interesting with the audience voting off the bottom 2, regardless of what team they are on. No more coaches saves the rest of the season. I could see Christina losing both girls in the same week. tongue.gif

Completely agree. Not many singers can pull off a prime Barry White number the way that Nicolas did. It was almost perfect.

I caught that look on Liz Davis' face as well . I'm sure that she figured that "hey, I look pretty sexy, I'm country, I can sing pretty well and Blake is my coach. I got this". So much for that. Even country boy Blake knew just another country singer when he had to make a decision. I couldn't believe that Adam saved Melanie. She's liike Xenia (or Zenia?) from season one. She's a novelty act with a very limited vocal range. Right now, Amanda is the cream of the crop with Treyvon on her heels. I thought that he showed tremendous control the other night and stayed away from the typical vocal gymnastics that he might fall prey to.

Idol faces no singing show competition. Put it up against The Voice and it's numbers would drop significantly. The Voice was on 2 nights it's not normally scheduled for and it still put up huge numbers. There's been no significant drop. All this is really proving is that NBC is nothing without MNF and The Voice. Both anchor 3 nights for NBC, and when they're gone in January NBC is going to suffer. Also proves that Simon Cowell wasn't the reason Idol was a hit.

So let me get this straight-Simon Cowell does 9 seasons on Idol, and then another 2 on X-Factor, and lower ratings in 2012 prove that Cowell wasn't the reason Idol was a hit 11 years prior? Ok...

Idol has already dropped. I would be interested to see what it would do with direct competition from another singing show.

The Voice had a huge drop in the ratings. Will it bounce back when it returns to its normal timeslot? Maybe.

Yes, that's exactly right. Simon was clearly not the reason Idol was huge. He played a significant role, as did Ryan, Paula etc. His leaving didn't harm them, nor did his arrival with X Factor produce a hit show. Clearly the proper format and timing is far more important. Simon can't overcome the fact that the X Factors format and production is a train wreck. If Idol's production was that awful, having Simon wouldnt have saved it.

Excellent summation .. I'd add, his arrogance can kill a show ..

Yep, and thankfully the producers of Idol didn't listen to him when he wanted Idol to become more like his show in the UK (X Factor). Idiotic manufactured drama, an emphasis on staging over singing, and a crowd that is encouraged to never shut up because Simon thinks loud noise equates to a good time. All X Factor USA has proven is that Idol's producers were right to ignore him.

So what is the schedule for this week? Is it still 2 2-hour shows with a 1 hour results? I hope not, since we've culled 8 singers and down to the final 12. 5 hours a week is killing me. I'll probably wind up having to watch this week's shows over this coming weekend.

I think it's down to one two hour and one one hour this week .. I checked the DVR last night and I'm pretty sure that was what was scheduled ..

Thanks guys! That's a bit more manageable, though I'll be a day or 2 behind in viewing - see ya'll later this week so no surprises!
post #262 of 489
I thought it was a disappointing night with poor singing and bad song choices. The judges comments were worthless, and I soon found myself just FF'ing through all of them. mad.gif

There were solid performances from Nicholas and Terry McDermott tonight.

Amanda Brown and Dez Duron had the 2 worst performances, but still may escape being eliminated.
post #263 of 489
Amanda Brown was horrible. Christina's dress made the show worth watching, though.

I think that combined with Adam's ripped up T must signal a new fashion trend .. wink.gif .. she did look particularly good last night .. although when we get a full side shot of her sitting in the rehersal room she looks pretty large from that side angle .. the woman has some booty .. not that it's a bad thing .. eek.gif

I don't want anyone to take what I'm getting ready to say the wrong way, and I really do like Trevin .. and I feel like he's being set up as the next winner .. but, can we get a winner this season that does not follow the exact same genre as the past two winners .. ?? Yes, I know he can hit the notes .. yes, I know he can do the vocal gymnastics .. yes, I know he's got a sad story and now Sandy has been added to that ... and yes, I know it's "The Voice" .. however, does it have to be the same voice .. ??

St Nick did a great job again last night .. I still don't think he's going to win it, but I hope he makes it to the finals .. I believe he should win it, I just don't think he will based on Americas vote ..

Sylvia, although brave to take on "My Heart Will Go On" .. did not do that great a job with it .. Adam pretty much hit the nail on the head when he said the song was associated so much with Celine & Titanic .. tough, tough, tough to do a cover on that one no matter how good you think you are ..

I felt like Bryan Keith and St Nick were the standouts last night .. along with Trevin ..
post #265 of 489
It is amazing how fast you can blaze through one of these episodes when most of the performances suck and you can ffwd through them AND all of the fluff. Despite getting home at 10pm, I had to watch this on the dvr and see what happened (I was done at 10:45). You guys have nailed it above. I felt Michaela did ok, and "St. Nick" still did well, thought the judges comments on "catching up" were spot on - he trailed the music in several spots. At this point, it's really anyone's game, since no one singer really stood out last night, except for maybe Bryan Keith. Tonight's votes will be very interesting.
post #266 of 489
There was some pretty weak singing going on last night. Felt like X Factor, except I could hear everyone singing and talking. They need to step this up if they don't want viewers to wave bye-bye. Last night's ratings were on par with last Monday's show, so NBC must be thrilled.
post #267 of 489
As a whole, I thought last night's performances were pretty bad. I like Amanda, but she was just off key for the majority of the song. Dez was as bad as usual. Sylvia isn't nearly as good as she thinks she is. Not even close.

Best ones for me were Bryan, Nick, and Trevin. Terry is decent as well, but he is starting to give off the vibe of just an 80's cover band singer.

Terry, The Hobbit (and I mean that in the nicest possible way) .. I thought had a few struggles at the high range ..

On St Nick playing catch up .. it's not uncommon for a vocalist to do that on purpose ..

Is it just me or is this whole skybox thing with what's her name lame .. ?? Last seasons, we had some sort of twitter lounge, now we have the skybox .. on Americas Got Talent, we've got the Orville Redenbacher lounge .. I fast forward thru all of that ..

Agreed on Terry. But on St. Nick - several (all?) of the judges called out the "catch-up" as a fault, and he made no comment about doing it on purpose, so I have to believe that was a fault in his performance.
