Music: Voice Vs. Image Where do you stand?

NBC has really stepped up their game; they’re in competition with FOX. NBC has created a new show, airing on Tuesday nights, at 9 P.M. CST. “The Voice” is a show with a concept similar to that of FOX’s “American Idol.” There are quite a few differences though. On “The Voice“, hosted by Carson Daly, 4 celebrity judges have their backs turned away from the stage, as aspiring singers give them all they’ve got. If the judges like what they hear, they push a button and their chair is turned around to come face to face with “The Voice.” If more than one judge turns their chair for a single performer, the performer then gets to choose which celebrity judge they want as their vocal coach. If only one judge turns around, the performer is automatically on their team. Once each judge has chosen 8 “voices,” the competition begins! This season, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Lavine are the judges. The 4 of them must pair up their 8 team members, and have them sing together, but against each other, resulting in the final four from each team. Last night began the live shows, where the remaining four on each team sing for their judges. Once three artists have been eliminated from each team, each coach will bust their behind to make sure that “their voice” wins the competition.

Now that I’ve exhausted your brain- Do you agree that the concept behind “The Voice” is better than that of “American Idol?” NBC really pushes the issues that image really isn’t everything. How often have you heard a judge on “A.I.” say, “you’ve got a great voice, but you just don’t have the right look”? On “The Voice”, the artists are chosen STRICTLY on singing ability. It sends such a strong message to kids who have the talent, but may not have what “America is looking for.” Watch your back, Seacrest! Carson Daly is coming for you!
