    Season 2 and already it's horribly predictable.

    New person, happy and cheery, music changes, sob story begins, sob story ends, says they're doing it for their dead mom/pop/dog/gf/bf or to prove that cancer/obesity/homosexuality/age doesn't mean your dream can't come true.

    Every contestant is accepted except in this scenario:
    -Singer A is introduced, contrived footage of them living an average day.. interrupted by--
    -Singer B is introduced, with their quick footage intro
    -Singer B sings, doesn't get through
    -Singer A gets more screen time before singing and sounding so much better than Singer B (seems like a push for them)

    Episode 3 had this bitch "surprised in her workplace" by Carson Daly telling her she's on the show. This is the moment...

    The cameraman must have snuck up 4 feet besider her without her knowing.. hair & makeup did, black dress on.. just a regular day at the office.

    Why do they think we're so stupid? Why am I the only person in the world who notices this shit? When they do market research, where are the smart people who put up their hand and say "Your show is stupid for the following 7 reasons."?

    Every show of its kind has competitors with sob stories. Wait until the mid-season plot twists.

    There is a reason they are in last place... But yeah, the premise seems overly simplistic. Lets get another version of extreme home makeover if we are going to continue reality tv. Or pay some hondurans to carry cameras on their illegal journey to the united states. Anything but more shitty pop music.

    The Voice is still way better than American Idol.
    And The Voice has been beating Idol in the ratings this year.

    Idol is just a fucking bore now .
    It really should be cancelled.

    My issue with the voice is that the magic of the show is over after each persons 1st song. Yes, you're not judging them on their audition song, but you are for the rest of the competition.

    Now, keep the judges from seeing the contestants until the finals, and then I'd be more interested in it.

    Lol you are not the only person who notices how scripted this show and any other reality show for that matter is. You are just the only who cares.

    Grrr anime avatars. I came here to get away from them.

    Anyway, I got sick of Idol so many years ago, it just made me too angry. I started watching The Voice because it seemed like it was setting itself apart from Idol, which is an immediate good sign.

    I think more people need to care about the quality of media they're being fed. Look what happened to Americans not caring about the quality of food they're being fed. They all got fat. TV like this either makes your brain atrophy or (like me) makes you angry as you pay attention to the shit that doesn't make sense. If more people cared, they would change. Complacency makes everything suck for everyone.
