the voice – 6th week

Posted: May 2, 2013 in tv

It’s the knockout round in the fourth season of the voice and I am still hooked. Hahaha… By the way, I am not sure if it really is the sixth week or not. I just assumed and I am hoping that I made the right assumption.

So, as I mentioned, I am still hooked. The judges are quite entertaining and the singers are really talented.  It’s my first time watching the voice this deep into the season. I only got to watch the blind auditions of the previous seasons so I have no idea what happens at this stage of the competition.

I am writing this as I watch the first of the knockout round. Hmmm… So they are pitting the remaining singers in each team against the other members of in the team.  The coaches (Adam, Shakira, Usher and Blake) choose 2 singers from their team for the knockout round. I find it weird that they are doing this to their team but hey, that’s how they formatted the show and it has created a big following so who am I to question their choice.  I think it would have been better had they pitted singers from different coaches against each other but that’s just me.

Anyway, some of the choices for pairing by the judges, Shakira in particular, weren’t really strategic. I think that the show’s format really promotes for the coaches to pair their bests against their worsts so that in the end, the bests will be left.  But Shakira defied this and pitted two of great singers together. Argh.

So this episode focused on Shakira’s and Adam’s teams.  By the end of the episode, they halved their teams, each now having just 4 for the live shows.  It was sad to see some of those talented people go but such is the nature of a competition.  Some of them might end up on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 later on despite the rejection.   But I hope that every one will continue to try and reach for his/her dream.
