  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. And right now, touring is still off the table so it opens up time to do the show.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Nope. Schedule is out for next week and he's not on it.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. I don’t know if this would cause them to push the filming dates but John’s grandma passed away yesterday. Maybe he wasn’t going to be available Friday or Saturday? https://www.instagram.com/p/CKzvJVbl08g/
  19. This is a culmination of "mistakes" that Morgan has been making this past year+ followed by hollow apologies and pledges to work on himself and multiple second chances. At some point your second chances run out and you have to face the consequences for your stupid actions and words you choose to use. The way I see it, this was the straw that broke the camel's back. There have been several people speaking out that work within the country community that have said there's been other "mistakes" that have been swept under the rug with this dude. This guy isn't some 20 year old fresh faced naive kid, he's 27 with a kid that's only convenient to mention when he needs a fluff piece written about him to offset some other stupid thing he did. His career isn't canceled, his rising mainstream almost a-list run is though. He'll still have a following, he'll still be able to release music, he'll still be able to play shows (like he has been), etc. I hope he seriously learns from this and grows as a person and gets help with any issues he has. And I really hope he has some good friends around him right now, and not the kind of friends that take pictures of you passed out drunk with vomit all around and post on social media, but real friends because this is something that could go south(er) very fast.
  20. Wonder if Kenzie will be getting a little trim on his Wallenesque look after seeing the sh*tstorm Morgan has gotten himself into tonight.
  21. Ugh. I'm so over him, but seriously, he's got a real drinking problem that needs to be addressed before some serious harm is done to himself and others.
  22. Luis Fonsi is Kelly’s advisor. https://extratv.com/2021/02/01/luis-fonsi-joins-kelly-clarkson-s-as-voice-team-advisor-plus-she-talks-funny-coach-group-text/
  23. You're remembering mostly right. I believe they got 2 or 3 run throughs of the song. I know it was 2 for sure, 1 rehearsal and 1 was the recorded take and there were producers on with them the whole time. I want to say there was a 3rd technical run through before the others but I'm not certain on that.
  24. I know, but what I'm saying is the reasoning they gave for shortening S18 was for the Olympics. That shouldn't change for this season, if that was the reasoning for that season. The Voice EP Audrey Morrissey: What's New and What to Look Forward To on Season 18
