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.

Tony Vincent from Season 2 of NBC’s the Voice New EP Released!

According to Broadway.com, Tony Vincent has put out a new EP featuring music with influences from of Liam Gallagher (known for Brit Pop).

When asked about the EP which features songs “Starting Over” and “Stronger Than Before”, he consider this to be a new beginning.

The reason it’s called In My Head is I wanted to show a very intimate side of me, something a little more aggressive than people have heard before on my solo releases. I also want them to see a bit of vulnerability, so I discuss the sin in my own life, the downfalls and times I continue to fail and disappoint myself.

Though he worked on the EP prior to his time on The Voice, after talking to CeeLo Green and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds:

Talking with them, I realized I would be a fool not to put out a project that I was incredibly proud of. They said, ‘You don’t have to change anything you’re doing. We’re not going to give you any advice because what you’re doing is incredibly authentic and we would be doing you an injustice if we told you how to angle what you’ve done.’

His new EP “In My Head” is already available on In My Head - EP - Tony Vincent.
The songs found on his EP include:
– In My Head In My Head - In My Head - EP
– Where Did I Go Wrong Where Did I Go Wrong - In My Head - EP
– Starting Over Starting Over - In My Head - EP
– Stronger Than Before Stronger Than Before - In My Head - EP

Vincent will also perform at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall on July 23.

NBC’s The Voice coming back in the fall

Hello! Marianya here. I’m a blogger over at other blogs in the PureTVNetwork series… primarily PureDWTS.com, PureSYTYCD.com and PureAmericasGotTalent.com, since I have other interests in shows like The Voice, I’ll be posting information here when I get it. 🙂 Below is the original post I made on my personal weblog.

Why am I not surprised? The Voice, NBC’s summer smash hit in 2011, and made new waves in spring of 2012 is going to come back in the fall 2012 lineup.

Not only that they are planning to cycle in additional judges to the panel. Not necessarily because of the chemistry of the current panel, but on the contrary TPTB (The Powers That Be) feel that since the judges are all working musicians, to ask them to schedule time for the show would be asking too much as it is.

To say that I’m excited is an understatement. What I am most worried about is whom they would bring on as coaches, after all the chemistry between the judges panel now (CeeLo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera) was a total unknown when the show premiere last summer and it soon became such a massive hit. I mean take a look at the Superbowl promo they filmed:

Anyway, I’m getting off the point. I think the only way that the Voice can sell in the Fall is if they make just as huge of a knockout with the judging panel as they currently have. But who to bring?
