So, in regards to the comments earlier about Cee-Lo and Christina leaving after this season, I just wanted to add one thing.
For as much as I love to look at Christina and truly think she is one of the greatest singers of all time, I think her departure should be a permanent one. Lets be honest here, in 3 seasons she has finished in 3rd place out of 4, last place, and now is out of competitors while the other two coaches still have 2 left each.
It's obvious she either sucks at picking talent, sucks at song choices, or is just a bad coach overall. Sorry, but I think with this track record, aside from looking hot, she doesn't bring anything to the show at this point.
With all due respect, I don't think lumping the word "we" into a discussion post is quite accurate .. after all, you don't speak for me .. I like the song prep, I like the Coaches .. etc .. could the show be condensed .. ?? Certainly ..
The winning percentage of a coach at this point in the game is Americas choice .. catagorically stating that it is fully the Coaches fault for a loss is simply unsupported .. I would counter your statement by saying she must have seen something in any pick .. whether or not that something can be developed into a winning contestant really has many, many variables .. of which the Coach is just one ..
I think I know of your distain for the show and I respect that .. however, you speak from the opinion of one .. yourself ..
There are certainly things I don't like as well, but in my opinion, it's still the best show of it's kind
I hope Christina comes back .. although Shakira will likely add a whole different dynamic to the next season .. I believe that this season, Christina has improved herself quite a bit and made an honest effort to try and win ..
I'm not attacking your post, we all can't like the show ..
On a side note .. I'd guess that Shakira may put Christina to shame when it comes to sexy female attire ..
