Two years ago yesterday, Janice Freeman passed away😭 Janice is one of my favorite contestants of all time. All of her performances were absolutely incredible, and her battle, KO, playoff, and T12 perf

Voice season 21 virtual casting is open for Dec 10 & 11th, if you've ever wanted to try to get past multiple rounds of producers and evaluators only to be mocked by people in an internet forum 

y’all need to hear this story about our beloved coach Usher. apparently he went to a club recently and paid the dancers in “Usher Bucks” as opposed to actual money... like the bills he gave them were

Hi guys. I've just joined IDF out of pandemic boredom... 😄 I've been watching the show and lurking the spoiler threads since season 6.

My latest favorites are Addison and Maelyn.

And I was born in Hungary btw 😄

Welcome! I also love Addison and Maelyn

This should maybe go in unpop, but I think Mia of worth the wait would’ve been a bigger contender by herself then she is as part of the trip. Young, pretty, country, and unlike the other two her solo didn’t totally stink

I don't think it's unpop.

i don't know whether she'd be able to handle doing a whole song by herself. i also think the novelty factor of a family trio is definitely helping them, as well.

I remember a very similar discussion around Hello Sunday from Season 17 - a lot of people thought one singer was better than the other, and that the other singer was bringing down their performances. But yeah, the novelty of having 13- and 14-year-olds in a cute little duo together helps them in a way that singing solo cannot. I could imagine the same thing going on with Worth the Wait.

 

Or maybe Mia DID originally audition alone, but TPTB stepped in and made her bring her sister and mom with her so they could be a trio... Simon Cowell-style... 👀(I don't actually believe this lol)

i have said this so many times before, but i'll say it every time this comes up. chelsea is REALLY good on the softer notes (visit the top 8 performance), and myla is REALLY good on the louder ones. if they had stuck with that instead of equally splitting it, they could have gone farther (and i think they could have taken a spot in the finale)

Did I hear right yesterday from Blake that the live shows are only three weeks long?

 

I feel no connection to any of these contestants with how quickly they're shuffled through the show. Eventually, the live shows will be one week and Carson will boast about "going from 20 contestants to 1."

I'm wondering how previous seasons would've fared if they had blown through the contestants as fast as they do now. How many finalists would never have built up steam or gotten a chance to sing that song which put them over the top?

If you don't like this format, just wait to see the format of both The Voice UK and The Voice Australia for next seasons. The format in both of them is gonna be a disaster. In The Voice UK, they are skipping from battles to semifinals, and then to final (They are eliminating 20 contestants in one week!). And in The Voice Australia they are skipping from Blinds to SEMIFINALS! The format in both has been literally murdered and distroyed. At least here, we still have both Battles and Knockouts, and one Live Show before Semifinals

The number of viewers decline radically after BAs and there's a reason for that. Casuals want to see the chairs turning and seeing who the contestant will pick, which are sort of catartic moments. Also the BAs has the most screentime with the coaches talking gibberish. The live shows should include more creativity, more catartic moments and more coach screen time to keep the casuals interested. That's my two cents.

Otherwise they will cut the number of live shows even more... however I'll stop watching at that point. The current format is already terrible. Do we know anything about how the spring season will go?

The lives have always been too short relative to the taped portions. At least they realized they had to pare down and start with only 40 artists.

OMG Yess! The voice put the Holidays performances on their You Tube Channel. Nice to see Jordan there. And btw as @seak05 mentioned in the THE VOICE HOLIDAYS CELEBRATION THREAD, Jordan is the only past voice contestant who's solo performance was shown.

I guess we can add this to the list of nationally televised performance gigs Kelly has hooked up for someone from Team Kelly. Kelly had Sid Kingsley play tenor sax for her performance of Underneath the Tree for the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting special that aired this week. He isn't shown much because he's so far off to the side, but he plays a solo at the 2:54 mark. I don't think Sid mentioned this performance on social media, but Tanner posted about it on his Instagram and tagged Sid.

If you told me that was Sid, I would not believe you. Also why is this video age-restricted ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ :haha:

Was just thinking, how did Britton manage to jump from IS winner to runner-up?

Two words: cumulative votes. 

 

The live rounds have separate results and the Finale overall, cumulative votes. They implemented the cumulative votes after season 7.

Only iTunes and then steaming were cumulative. Votes weren’t
