    Season 16 Discussion

    Maelyn has been my favorite from her audition. I don't listen to country but if I had to choose from the other three, I like Dexter.

    When Blake sings with his contestants, he is so much better than them. You have the whole school year to teach your students. That's why they improve. I don't think the coaches really spend that much time with their contestants during the week. Then the show just seems to eliminate contestants too quickly. I like Rod with certain songs. I thought he didn't do well with his duet with Kelly. But he was great with his duet with Maelyn. The same thing with his solos. Adam made a huge mistake last season. However, I do like that he usually gets interesting artists. I like when there are different styles in the show. I think it's better for a contestant to show the style they like even if it means they will be eliminated earlier. As I previously posted, they should get rid of cross battles and change the voting so we don't have the Country Voice.

    Season 16 Discussion

    If you read social media, there are people that are really angry at Kelly and John since they told Gyth that it wasn't his best performance. They expected it from John since they never liked him anyway because of political differences. But they didn't expect it from Kelly. So they're repeating the same line that Blake gave which is that both of them were jealous of Blake. They also said they're not patriotic. Some of these people would have probably voted for Rod instead of Andrew in the IS. I'm not positive since they might have voted for Andrew anyway since he's country and Team Blake. I just know that they're not happy with Kelly right now.

    At first, Carson wasn't even going to Adam for feedback. It was funny. He would go to Kelly, John, and then Blake since it was his contestant. He did that for a few contestants before he finally asked for Adam's opinion. I think it was a non-Blake contestant too. Shawn should not have been in the IS. He had one of the better performances on Monday. It should have been Gyth but we knew that wasn't going to happen. All three IS artists did better than he did on Monday. Since Shawn did have to sing, I agree with you. He shouldn't have chosen a Bruno Mars song. It's a fun song but it didn't show how good he is vocally. I remember Emily Ann. She just looks different since she was only a senior in HS when she was on. She was in the season with Zach and Barrett (gag!!). The gag was for Barrett. Jordan won the season they were on. I really hope that Maelynn wins too. I'm only watching because of her. I'll most likely FF through the others. I also agree with the voting. I've been thinking the same thing. With other shows, you get so many votes like 20 or 10. Then you have to decide how you want to split it up between the artists. The way it is now, a person can vote 10x each for any artist. Between that and the cross battles, no wonder we had so many Team Blake contestants. They didn't have to split their votes.

    Four are being cut. Yes, there's a twitter save. Three finalists are automatically through. Two are automatically sent home. The three in the middle are singing for the twitter save. Gyth was really pandering for votes. Pick a song that is patriotic and has God in it. It worked since people on social media are saying that if you didn't like his performance then you're un-American. No, I just don't like horrible singing. Carter was really off and he was the one that I liked on Blake's team. But not after last night. I hope Maelyn and Shawn are voted through. I also liked Maelyn and Rod's version of Yesterday. I like Rod but I didn't really like his solo performance. If I was the judge, his would be the one where I would say that wasn't his best performance. Gyth was just plain awful. If it's four country guys in the finals, I'm out.

    Had a feeling that we would get this Top 8 since they were the ones that were voted through last week. Mari was really close though. I know some people might not vote for Adam's contestants because of Adam. However, I also think that the general voting audience are older and lean country. It just seems that way to me. So I think Mari and LB would not have made the finals even if Adam didn't bus DeAndre last season. I think the cross battles hurt him and the other coaches more since Blake wasn't restricted to only two country artists. With the previous format, Adam would have probably had Domenic, Mari, and LB through the Live shows.

    World Of Dance

    Yes, I really like Briar too. I see her as more than just a gymnast. She puts elements of funk and jazz in her routines so she is dancing. Her acro moves are considered dancing too. However, I didn't like her Toxic routine as much as the one she did in the Division Finals. For the Toxic one, I liked the beginning especially the hanging split but I didn't like the routine as much. I agree that she needs to create different dynamics so that people can appreciate her acro moves more. I also agree that nobody was going to beat the Kings this year. They had a story, drama, and great tricks. It was like watching a Las Vegas act.

    Mari was fantastic last night. But she was also fantastic last week too. I think she's not the type that would get the current viewers' votes. I voted for her but then it didn't help when I voted for her last week. I do hope you're right. Don't get the appeal of Kim. I'm not into rap music either. However, I could tell that Saraya from The Four: Battle for Stardom was really good at rap while Kim makes me hit the FF button.

    Season 16 Discussion

    I'm staying until it's all country singers. I start watching them sing for a few seconds and then I FF'd until they're done. So they have to hook me in before that like Rod, Rebecca, and Carter did during their cross battles. Rod and Carter didn't sing country songs though. I'm still hoping that Maelyn makes the finals. I'm looking forward to Songland to start at the end of May. It looks like it's a competition for song writers and they do have a lot of good popular artists to help.

    Yes, I saw articles about this. Here's one of them. So we're basically going from 13 to 8. The following week, it's eight to four for the finals. This show just goes by so fast. https://www.nbcumv.com/programming/nbc-entertainment/voice/episodes-schedule

    I meant in general not just this season. It seems once we go Live, the season ends so quickly. The other time, they eliminate so many at once is right before finals. This is where three go straight to the finals, three automatically get eliminated, and then three fight for the last spot. I read that next week, five contestants will go home. That's a lot since we just barely got down to 13.

    I didn't like this format because I'm not a country fan. Instead of a Legendary season, we got a Blake season which I knew would happen. Even though I do think coaches play a factor, it's also the genre. I also agree with you that Kelly's team was not good on Monday. Pressley did the best and she's not even technically the strongest. Matt and Jej are technically stronger but they tend to choose boring songs or sing songs that way. Shawn gets through because he chooses songs that the audience likes. I thought Rebecca would have a really good chance of making it before Monday. She's country and was my favorite country singer but she wasn't good this week. I don't even remember Rod's performance except that I didn't like it as much as his cross battle performance. I'm o.k. with John choosing Celia. She was better this week. Jacob is a no. Jimmy is a good performer but hit some flat notes. Lisa did a good job and she's toned it down quite a bit. But she's still a little too much in her style. I'm mostly glad that Maelyn made it and Shawn is a good singer too. I feel bad for Adam's team. I thought both Mari and Betsy performed really well. Domenic was good too. But they're not country and their coach is Adam. It's difficult for me to judge Blake's team since I'm not a country fan. I did like Kendra's performance and wished she was saved. I also liked the young kid last week and he was decent this week. But he doesn't sing country even though he's a country singer. Gyth is o.k. and probably going to win. I keep reading that he's good looking but I don't see it. I hate how this show is eliminating so many contestants at once. I agree that it's hard to get to know them. I think it's going to be Maelyn and country guys for the finale. I'm voting for Maelyn.

    I'm thinking this could likely happen. Also, since he had the most contestants going into this round, his team shouldn't have been last. Or at least, the show should have done a little montage at the end of all the contestants singing their songs.

    Where Are They Now?: SYTYCD Alumni's Current Projects

    Great guest mentor. I hope this doesn't mean that he can't help on SYTYCD. I know he's not a judge this season but it would be nice to see him do something else.

    Ugh. I hope he has grown up a lot since that was over 10 years ago. I remember there were stories of Lacey accusing Lauren of being a mean girl/bullying. I also hope that was because all of them were 18 and still immature.
