  1. Considering what the group performance for S19's top 20 is going to be, I'd bet on Faouzia being John's advisor for the Battle Rounds
  2. I know the show is only still going on because of the couch casuals, but those song choices? Come on lol
  3. Would love the Idol Games forum back too, that was one one of the most satanic dynamics forums of this site for me and definitely a big part of why I used it.
  4. Thanks for the update Hoping the site gets more glammed up, with things like a header image and options to change the background color (if that’s even a thing with this format), so it feels more like “home” as the old one used to be.
  5. I love how this show spends the entire season pandering to the older audience, both with the contestants and their outdated song choices, then try to have a relevant finale. The couch must be "wtf" at this Dua Lipa performance right now.
  6. Added, welcome!! Ready for the finale!!!
  7. I'm gonna ignore the last portion of your answer because you're tripping and that has nothing to do with what I was talking about. I never said it's acceptable for Jake to do the songs he did. He's gonna be one of, if not the blandest winner The Voice ever had. What I said is that the racial bias on these shows is sadly a thing, and those kinds of singers like Rose are doing themselves no favors by picking song choices that play more and more into America's dislike for the stereotype. I'm not arguing about the racial bias, you're completely right about that, and I'm not saying that the black divas have to follow a formula that white country singers have to follow in order to win, I'm saying that I can see why they're continuously in disadvantage when at this point it's already clear what America thinks it's ok and thinks it's not ok. And truth be told, Kennedy did the possible and impossible to break the mold, and it still wasn't enough, which sucks. I'm not supporting Katie either, and even if she's clearly not grouped by the casuals in the same box as Rose, that doesn't mean she'll have any success after the show (neither will and we know that). Bullet points: Is the racial bias clearly existent and unfortunate? Yes, sadly America is racist and black singers are unfortunately judged by standards white ones aren't. Is blaming all the other problems related to their artistry on the racial bias the solution? No, I don't care about someone's race, I, personally, do believe they would have higher chances if they're singing more current songs and adapting to the market than if they're singing ballads from decades ago when they're ALREADY in disadvantage due to their color.
  8. It's been 17 seasons and it's clear that America is insanely biased, but I wasn't talking about them pandering to an white audience; I was talking about them not breaking the mold and picking that kind of outdated songs when they're already in clear disadvantage, which does them no favor. Of course race unfortunately plays a big part as well, I was just talking about a different factor.
  9. A black woman is not winning because they never do what they really need to win the show. Season after season we see the same divas, singing the same kind of old songs, slaying vocally as usual, but ultimately proving that they have no place in the market. The moment one of them step up on stage for the Blinds, you know they're gonna sing an Aretha song, probably a Whitney song at some point too, the usual stuff. They just never really do much to break the mold and free themselves from the pre-conceptions the public is gonna have of them, even though they always have the same fate, season after season. Like, I'm sorry, Rose is not gonna do anything with a song choice like Border Song, let's be real. She's a fantastic vocalist, and should have more of a shot if the contest was really about the voice, but it's not and we all know it. Maybe pick a current Beyoncé or Rihanna song that can show she has some place in the market (lol) instead of an Elton John song from 1970. I used to be bothered by America not saving those kinds of singer, but I can't really blame them for not doing it anymore, not even I can be impressed by them after 15 seasons anymore. The only one I genuinely felt was robbed was Kimberly Nichole (Amanda is a different case because she peaked too early, it wasn't because she was black), who was constantly raising the bar and doing something different and better week after week, from ballads to uptempo. She was a complete vocalist and artist, and someone that was truly robbed because of how she looked like and how she performed. So yeah, if singers like Rose want to have any kind of shot they have to dance to America's tune, otherwise none of them will stand a chance and will only be able to get to a certain point. Can't say they're really robbed anymore
  10. Probably to represent the fact a black woman is never winning
  11. Saving Hello Sunday is the only acceptable move here, if you're team good TV like I am.
  12. Guys I know the nerves are HIGH but you need to calm down
  13. Wow I guess the rumors of Katie singing Despacito for the finale are really true
  14. Why is this being performed already, I thought Katie was saving it for the finale
