NBCs the Voice Season 3 – Battle Round (Observations)

So I have been watching NBCs the Voice and we are just getting underway with the Battle Rounds.

For those of you that have been paying attention I have also been watching The Voice of Vietnam which is Vietnam’s adaptation of The Voice that is just now going into the Live Rounds of the first season.

One of the first things that I noticed is that in the United States… for the Battle Rounds in the United States version when the vocalists are learning the music everyone is using just paper for the lyrics and musics. When watching The Voice of Vietnam – on the other hand – everyone was learning their music via the Samsung tablets. Interesting…

In any case, the joy of the Battle Rounds this time around in the United States version is “The Steal” where any of the coaches could “steal” the vocalist that did not win their individual battle round. We have seen the steal go to work twice in Monday’s episode of the voice as well as on Tuesday’s episode of the voice.

Let’s look more in depth with the “stolen” vocalists.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does blogging fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =) Though you may find me at either PureDWTS, PureSYTYCD or PureAmericasGotTalent at this point.

NBCs the Voice Season 3: Second Time’s the Charm

In the premiere episode we were treated to seeing Daniel Rosa take another try at the Voice, after not making a team in Season 2 but was given great advice for his singing, he came back stronger and more confident making it onto CeeLo’s team. As a quick reminder here is Daniel’s original audition in Season 2 (audio only w/ pictures)…

Versus Season 3’s audition.

Last night we were treated to another singer that auditioned in Season 2 and did not make a team then only to make it onto a team in Season 3: Dez Duron.

The Voice 2012 Returns Monday

The Voice is returning to NBC on Monday. Unlike the rest of the vocal reality TV shows, the judges are still the same. Plus, the Voice has added a great new twist this season to make the Battle Round more interesting. Basically, once the coach chooses who they’re going to keep in the battle rounds, then the other coach can steal the singer who lost the battle round. Should make it interesting.

A true lover of TV. Not everything about TV, but great TV. Not afraid to say what he thinks and be proven wrong when someone knows something more than he does. My favorite TV show is definitely Amazing Race. However, it's not my favorite TV show to blog about.
