  1. Outside of an odd post here and there, neither Kelly nor Blake run their social media accounts anymore. Kelly really only posted over on IG for a few years after she joined back in 2013, then it mostly turned into a reposting from other socials and her team posting for her. She was a tiny bit more active on twitter, albeit sporadically, until about a year ago, it's been mostly her team tweeting for her for years. She actually did a couple drive-by tweets a few weeks back when she dug up a couple some random week old tweets and replied to them. She's mentioned a couple times in the past year that she's pretty much off social media these days. While I was digging through her IG looking for some stuff, I was reminded of this picture with Ari back in 2015 with Kelly's former stepkids. Seth used to have a huge crush on her. lol Now Kelly's working with her and River is the same age as he was in this pic and that kind of blows my mind. https://www.instagram.com/p/3mKHAkIzlh/
  2. Kelly's in Orlando tonight doing a show, so they could be filming but it's nothing with her.
  3. It's cute that that "pinthedog" person thinks the coaches actually arrange the music and split up the lines the contestants sing.
  4. I'm curious, how many of you are old enough to remember and/or watch when Carson hosted TRL and other MTV shows? To this day it still cracks me up that he hosts The Voice because he was always "too cool for school" and stuck up about Idol and the other shows like that in those early years... including with Kelly early on. To be fair, he wasn't alone with that attitude at that time, but it's still so funny to me and for him and Kelly to be as good of friends as they are now makes me happy.
  5. Even though many were trainwrecks, many also were not, I miss the team performances we used to get.
  6. Kara mentioned on ig that they're doing the studios today and that although she couldn't say how many songs are being recorded, she said she thought they haven't done this many before. I'm assuming that it's 15 songs?
  7. I don't know, NBC has new people in charge of programming and this will be their first full go around with the schedules and shows. They've been making other changes with other shows too. I think this is a good move and one that probably should've happened a few years ago. Them being able to get Ariana is probably because they did cut the second cycle. I think the chances of the season being extended by a few more weeks is 50/50. I would love for it to be, but I'm not going to be putting any money on it being. And it's not the producers that decide how many shows they get to air, that comes from the top and the producers of The Voice have to figure out how to make the show work in the timeframe they're given.
  8. Does Idol advertise or show their contestant's social media handles? I don't think TV does since they got rid of the twitter vote, do they?
  9. I'm assuming yes on at least Kelly too. Her band posted that they'd been vaccinated awhile ago, so I just assumed she had been too as a show and/or nbc thing. CA is opening it up to 16+ on the 15th with several places including LA (city) getting ahead of schedule and opening it up this weekend. So I agree that by the live shows, the people that want it should at least have some of it by then. I'm not getting my hopes up about anything special being done for the 10th anniversary, but I'd definitely welcome it.
  10. Her announcement should have an asterisk with it. She'd been on the show so much prior to her officially taking a seat that people pretty much figured it was going to happen at some point. And her name had been in the news cycle that whole week before because of the news of Idol coming back and they were floating her name in the media as a possible judge (when it was never going to happen). Ariana's was a true surprise, which makes sense in the times we're in right now, but a real surprise nonetheless.
  11. And right now, touring is still off the table so it opens up time to do the show.
  12. Not really, the studio they're in now is the same studio they were always going to use after they tore down the old Studio 12 after the S18 knockouts were filmed. The pandemic just hasn't allowed them to have an audience in it yet. They have it configured to look "smaller" on camera right now, it's just a big empty building that they can change to how they need it for best use. I'm hopeful they're able to get people in there in May, if not I fully expect it for next season.
  13. Not really. She personally hasn't used her insta or fb pages in a looong time and up until the 1st of October she posted semi-frequently on twitter. She's actually only posted maybe 10-15 times since then.
  14. Sure did, went to a number of his concerts pre-Voice too. Thinking back, I guess I followed country music a bit more then than I do now because I knew his music, Blake and Miranda were a big thing, he was a judge on Nashville Star the season Kacey Musgraves was on there. I also knew of him from another show he did on NBC called Clash of the Choirs. Anyone remember that one?? lol
  15. Her recorded albums are pop but they all pull from many different genres and if you asked her, she would say she's pop (in a grander sense of the word). However it's not odd to me that she's mentioned with the other genres though, pretty much if she's recording on outside records, it's in the country world. I can't tell you the amount of times I've seen her referenced as a country singer in an article, which makes me laugh because that would mean the country album she's been talking about making for 12+ years would finally be out and I'd be a very happy person. And then add to that the nearly 500 covers that she's done in the last 10 years, 300 in the last 2 alone where they're pulling from all genres, the genre lines get blurred. She's a chameleon in that sense.
  16. Nope. She was removed from there earlier this week. Kelly is still likely listed there because of the lawsuits where they claim to still represent her and she's made it very clear that they don't.
  17. There’s usually a viewing of the first episode for members of the media shortly before the season starts. I believe there might be a screener sent out too, especially these last 2 seasons. This is also how MJ has posted about the first episode in the past.
  18. lmao I don't care what anyone else thinks, I got a kick out of the video today. They went with a humorous one this time and we know Blake and Kelly are game for whatever, John mostly is and they all had to be to cover for Nick in both his dullness and lack of vocals compared to the other three. I'll agree that the Blake/Nick stuff is old and forced at this point. It's light years above the S15 Honey Bee.
  19. Is that the same one that also keeps telling Kelly to stay away from Blake? There’s been a couple crazy accounts like that over the last year. lol
  20. FWIW, I don't think there's any hard feelings about the song now, she still performs it at concerts etc. When it was released, there was another song that goes by the name Halo (you may have heard of it?) that sounds suspiciously similar. What's the common thread between the two? Ryan Tedder (this is where there still may be hard feelings). Kelly writes the lyrics, Tedder brought the track. She was asked about the two songs in a little sidebar of a printed interview around the time AG was released and she said that the two of them had been working together, they wrote and recorded the song. He went to work with Beyonce sometime after their session, slightly tweaked the track he had worked on with Kelly, they wrote Halo. Halo was released before Kelly's album was, she heard the song and tried to get AG off the album but the label said it was too late to do that. She then didn't want it released as a single because she knew there'd be a "controversy" over it. It was released as a single. There was some controversy. Both were successful though. It should also be noted that Kelly was still having a hard time behind the scenes with Clive and RCA for this album and this didn't help anything. I think it was noted that Corey is doing Sleeping At Last's version of the song? That's a great version. I'd be curious to know what Kelly's reaction to this was? I keep seeing people talk about Piece By Piece maybe being off-limits for obvious reasons, but to me, Already Gone might be right up there with that song in her discography that hit way different for her now.
  21. Nope. Schedule is out for next week and he's not on it.
  22. No, they got that one in. He was the Thursday morning taping and they cancelled the afternoon one. I expect this one to air March 1st.
  23. That's the reason the audience was given yesterday when they cancelled the afternoon taping an hour after it was scheduled to start. Rubin is the warmup guy for her show too (he also does The Voice) and he supposedly stressed that she was okay, which I take to mean that she's not sick, it's just a vocal/throat thing. He also added that it's just the times we're in with covid protocols and filming. Nick was the guest for the morning session yesterday.
  24. There's a lot of stuff unpacked in this article. Chris Willman talked to several Nashville execs including people on the radio side and other managers for this. What’s Next for Morgan Wallen? The Country Music Industry Considers His Future… and Its Own | Variety I'm just going to pull the sales, streaming and airplay portion since that was just talked about a couple posts up. The whole thing though is a good read. And since Luke Combs was a topic earlier today, here's this part
