THE VOICE – My rating 9.5/10

TheVoiceThe best reality singing competition on TV.  I can’t say enough about the set-up and comradery between the host and panel of judges.  Whether it’s Adam Levine, Blake Sheldon, Celo Green and Christina Aguilera, or Adam, Blake, Usher and Shakira, the chemistry is awesome.  There are 4 judges seated in luxury chairs that are facing opposite the stage.  In other words, the judges cannot see who’s singing, they can only hear the candidate’s voice.  That means color, appearance, shape, nor gender plays into the choosing of the singer.  It’s purely based on talented voices.  A judge can turn their chair if they want to choose the person singing, if not, their chair turns after the performance is over.  If more than 1 judge turns their chair for a singer, the singer gets to choose which  judge they want to have coach them.  Contestants are pitted against one another after each judge has picked 16 potential candidates.  Eventually the show goes live, allowing America to vote on their favorates.  Each contestant is coached by their judge and a mentor of the judge’s picking to help train them for the live rounds.  There are steals and lots of name calling and plotting between the judges, which makes for a delightful, fun show.  Check this one out, it’s better than XFactor or American Idol.  I’ve been watching since the show began and it always makes my day.  The Voice currently airs on NBC.
