  1. I agree. TPTB, coaches, underage contestants, and their parents should pay more attention to the lyrics on song choices for minors.
  2. Texas Hill made its Grand Ole Opry debut on January 22, 2022. Craig Wayne Boyd (43, winner of The Voice season 7); Adam Wakefield (39, runner-up of The Voice season 10); and Casey James (39, third place on American Idol season 9) began performing as a country trio in 2019. All three had performed individually on the Grand Ole Opry stage in the past, but Saturday was their first appearance together. Texas Hill's debut full-length album Heaven Down Here was released on January 21, 2022. https://www.texashillofficial.com
  3. Wendy always looked great. She seems to like wearing black, and it IS flattering. But I'm glad she wore some other colors during her time on the show.
  4. While talking about Good to Be, Kebโ€™ Moโ€™ says: โ€œI love the title cut, sitting in the room with Vince and that was some of the old-school Nashville cats on that song,โ€ he says. โ€œGordon Mote, Paul Franklin โ€” and youโ€™ve got Wendy Moten on there, too, with the background vocals.โ€ https://www.billboard.com/music/country/keb-mo-good-to-be-album-1235020539

  7. The Voice of Holland began airing on RTL4 on 09/17/10. The show's twelfth season was scheduled to run for 15 episodes. Twelve of those have already been recorded. The last three would have been broadcast live. The season premiered on January 7, and the second episode of blind auditions aired on January 14. Having the show suspended so suddenly over these serious allegations must be a shock for fans excited about watching the new season and for the current contestants, as well as their families and friends. It would be especially disappointing for those who advanced through all the pre-recorded rounds. summary of the documentary: In spring 2021, Dutch TV news program BOOS heard about sexually inappropriate behavior at The Voice of Holland and decided to investigate the claims in August. Journalist Tim Hofman asked people to contact BOOS with any information. "Numerous reactions followed from people who said they were victim or witness." BOOS sent emails on January 12 about the alleged misconduct to Dutch broadcasting company RTL, current producer ITV Studios, former producer Talpa Network, John de Mol Jr., the accused men, and a few more individuals. ITV immediately started an external investigation into the allegations, led by reputed Dutch law firm Van Doorne. RTL also requested the reported abuses be investigated by the Public Prosecutions Department. To date, 19 young women have come forward with similar stories and accusations about Jeroen Rietbergen, pianist and band leader on The Voice of Holland. The events took place from 2010 to 2021. These women are either participants, employees, or former employees on The Voice of Holland. Rietbergen (50) issued a statement to the press on January 15 admitting he'd had relations with participants and expressing "sincerest apologies" to the women involved for his wrong behavior. He announced that he will cease to work for any The Voice show effective immediately. Rietbergen is married to the sister of John de Mol Jr., billionaire creator of The Voice concept. Linda de Mol split from her husband last weekend and is taking a break from her own television career. John de Mol Jr. (66) spoke with Tim Hofman on January 19 after viewing the BOOS video. John claims he learned in April 2019 of inappropriate texts Rietbergen sent to one young female contestant. Because he had been working with Rietbergen for 11 years and "believes everyone deserves a second chance," John reprimanded his brother-in-law that same day and warned him to never text another female participant or colleague. John states he was only responsible for The Voice of Holland the rest of that year and did not hear of any other instances of misconduct during those months. Fifteen women came forward independently with similar stories about the same director, whose name has not yet been revealed. This director made sexual remarks in the workplace and touched people without permission. Dutch singer Marco Borsato (55) was a coach on The Voice of Holland from 2011 to 2015. From 2012 to 2020, he was also a coach at The Voice Kids. Borsato was linked to having affairs and touching underage girls. On December 14, a 22-year-old woman reported Borsato to police and pressed charges for obscene and inappropriate touching. She was 15 when the alleged abuse started. Borsato pressed charges on December 17, accusing the woman of fabricating the story and defamation and her mother of incitement and complicity. Two additional victims came to John van den Heuvel. Three young women also told BOOS that Borsato touched them without permission. One of them was an employee at The Voice of Holland. Three participants of The Voice Kids also came forward. Two girls (ages 13 and 14) were touched on the bottom. A third witnessed the behavior regularly on the set. Borsato denies all the accusations. Rapper Ali B (40) became a coach in 2013, and he's been a coach at The Voice Kids since 2016. He is also co-owner of management agency SPEC and record label Trifecta. It has been said that he has shown aggressive behavior behind the scenes, has had an affair with a contestant, has regularly been unfaithful to his wife, and has assaulted two women. Two victims filed official police reports against the coach on January 11 and 18. BOOS spoke with two women who detailed their accusations of Ali Bouali in the video. The first was an 18-year-old contestant on The Voice of Holland eight years ago. She pressed charges against Ali B for raping her at his studio in Almere weeks after her elimination. Ali B allegedly visited the other woman in her home after her elimination. She asked him to leave the second time he told her he wanted to have sex, and he left without saying anything. Ali B responded to the message from BOOS by saying, "First, I am 100 percent convinced that I am innocent of any abuse of power or any sexual misconduct whatsoever. That means that I deny the anonymous, vague imputations from BOOS completely. I cannot possibly respond to the gossip and insinuations that BOOS collected. This is scandalmongering, and I am unsure what it is I should defend myself against." After saying it apparently happened "a long time ago," he adds: "I reiterate that this allegation cannot be true."
  8. Marco Borsato's Wikipedia currently shows: He has consistently been one of the most successful and biggest grossing pigs in the Netherlands and Belgium for the past thirty years. Occupation(s) Singer, actor, raper

  17. https://olered.com/tishomingo/event/peedy-chavis-and-carson-peters Weโ€™re bringing Voice artists Peedy Chavis and Carson Peters to The Doghouse at Ole Red Tishomingo! If you loved them performing on Team Blake, youโ€™re not going to want to miss this! Team Blake Voice artist Peedy Chavis doesnโ€™t remember a time when he wasnโ€™t obsessed with Elvis Presley. His mother started playing Elvis songs for him at 3 years old and he went on to dress as Elvis for Halloween 10 years in a row. In high school, Peedy joined musical theater and knew he was a natural entertainer. He often landed the lead roles and proceeded to compete in theater competitions throughout his school years. Outside of theater, Peedy remained on stage by gigging locally with his rock band. Peedy hopes to inspire the younger generation with his modern spin on old school rock โ€˜nโ€™ roll. Itโ€™s no surprise Blake Shelton was the first judge to turn his chair for the young artist! Joining Peedy from Team Blake is Carson Peters. Carson started playing the fiddle at just 3 years old and began performing at 4. He quickly became a local sensation and gained national attention after performing on โ€œThe Tonight Show with Jay Lenoโ€ at 8 years old. He put his fiddle skills to work and started playing in bands, one of which opened for his idol, Ricky Skaggs. At 10 years old, Carsonโ€™s dreams were coming true and he got invited to perform with Skaggs at the Grand Ole Opry. Despite his success and love for the fiddle, Carson decided to make a name for himself as a singer as well and started his own bluegrass band. Outside of school, Carson has spent the past five years touring all over the U.S. as the lead singer in his band. Donโ€™t miss this Voice AND Team Blake reunion of these rising stars at Ole Red Tishomingo! Show: Saturday, February 19, 2022 6pm: VIP Experience 7pm: GA Doors Open 8pm: Show 18+ Event
