    The talent on tonight's show is at a high level.

    In all fairness, the performers are older than the American Idol performers.

    Duncan Kanakama from Hawaii has the warmest and sexiest smile. I'm a fan of his.

    You should see the duet he did with Sarah Simmons.

    Sarah won the battle against him.

    I like the Voice as a show so much better than Idol and X Factor now. Usher and Shakira were awesome additions to the panel. Some great potential on this season so far!

    That said, you gotta give some credit to Candice and Amber on Idol. Those girls have got pipes! Angie is good but overrated, and I just don't understand Kree's appeal. So boring.

    I really like The Voice so much better than American Idol as a singing show. I even like Duets better than American Idol. For that matter, I will watch Project Runway, but I think Fashion Star is so much better.

    That's Idol's doing though. Idol is perpetually searching for Justin Beibers. One thing worht noting is that this is the first season in 5 years I think where a white male with a guitar won't win american idol.

    The Voice has been incredible! I love watching the talent...

    one of my favorite duets so far has been from these two sexy spanish chicks...the one in blue, in my opinion, killed it....it was too fucking effortless!

    I find it very hard to watch shows like American Idol and The X Factor. I have yet to watch the Voice though.

    American Idol is just a joke to me. Sure it churned out Kelly Clarkson and other rare good musicians but I just don't know. This might be because I'm not a big pop fan. I don't really care for Justin Bieber, Kesha, and all those other stars right now. They are nothing special to me really. And so when I see these contestants trying to become the next Idol or X Factor, I can't help but feel bad for them because while some may not be terrible singers, they won't get accepted because they don't have the look or whatever. I will admit though, they do have guts to try so I have to respect that.

    Same with X Factor, plus the fact that they had Britney on the panel. I'm sorry but I can't take her seriously at all.

    I may give the Voice a chance though. It sounds like they would be genuinely looking for good singers so you can't go wrong with that. icon_smile.gif

    I like the Voice because it's a blind audition. It's amazing how many times they comment on how they wish they chose someone after they see them.

    Having said that, I like Idol because the talent they have on there now, are all the 'full package', voice, looks and performance. The girls dominated the singing, despite some good 'guy singers', just not nearly as good as the girls. The final four deserve to be where they are! I'm placing my bet on Candice as the 'winner' in the long run, whether she wins Idol or not.

    The Voice is about real talent and they don't do things like American Idol simply for ratings. For one, there's no bad auditions like they show on AI. Also, it they take a fair amount of time to get to the top 10 as opposed to AI which takes forever. I like the idea of coaching rather than plan judging.

    It's just a shame that the Voice winners and other contestants haven't really got a true break yet. Yeah AI produces more popular singers but I think it's dying and the Voice and even X Factor will rise up.

    The girls on the Voice SIT on the girls on AI now

    I don't even start watching Idol until they're done with all the silly ass auditions. I"m really only interested in the real singers.

    the voice is definitely more entertaining to watch than idol. but my interest always seems to kinda wan after the battle rounds. i somehow keep getting the impression the voice is more of an avenue for the celebrity judges than the singers themselves, maybe it's the way blake and adam kept referring to the previous winners as Their Wins.

    idol on the other hand should jsut stop it with the cruise ship themes. they wanna court the tween votes but keep making them sing songs popular in the days of their grandparents?

    Comparatively speaking, I would agree. However, Chris Mann is probably the most successful Voice contestant to date. 2 albums under his belt along with a PBS special showcasing his voice. He came in 4th during his season on the Voice and was Christina's entry in the top 4. It seems that the non winners here may do better than the actual winners. That is probably the only common ground the Voice shares with American Idol.

    This has been a deliberate plan of action by the American Idol producers. They desperately want a female winner....that is why the male contestants were "B" level at best (many were worse). The judges did not permit the best male voices to get through during the audition process - this is a very well known fact.

    Remember, this show isn't about their "story" - its about their ability to sing! The current season has been a sham through and through.

    Probably because Usher and Shakira got added to the show....they have great chemistry it seems like.....it's better than that fuckery that Nikki Minaj and Mariah Carey bring over at idol....if people wanted to see grown ass women fight, all they have to do is tune into Love and Hip Flop....

    I agree, I have noticed that AI over the years seemed to have carefully calculated the sex of the winner somehow. It's been boy/girl then a few years it wasn't so they are "due" for a female winner. How stupid, who ever is the best should win, who cares who it is

    And I looked up Chris Mann-sexy man and sexy voice icon_razz.gif

    And I wanna add too, that AI seems to put A LOT of filler in their episodes, especially when they get to the top 10 or 8. I don't believe the Voice really does that at all. I am talking the stupid music videos and the promotional crap for Ford or Pepsi that AI does. I don't like, however, how the Voice is filling a 2 hour time slot for 2 days, kinda stupid to me.

    I also read that AI makes the singers sing with OLD people and they sing OLD songs where as they seem to see TODAY'S music on the Voice, I definitely have noticed this too. Of course, it's more so on AI than the Voice, not that they both don't sing new songs and classics

    Judith Hill vs. Orlando Dixon--I just finished watching

    http://www.nbc.com/the-voice/video/knockouts-judith-hill-vs-orlando-dixon/n35999/

    was a very good knockout round.

    Yes, Judith is the performer associated with Michael Jackson (member of the This Is It company and sang at his funeral).

    Results: Orlando just didn't maintain a necessary level of quality.

    Hi Juvenescences,

    Amber is in shoes too big for her. For me, from what I've seen, the Barbara Streisand song was impressive.

    You remember when Candice had the standing ovation and Maria sprinkled her with glitter? That was some singing!

    I agree that Kree is not that strong of a finalist. C'mon: Pia Toscano was better than Kree.
