I wonder if they tried to get Wendy to pick Ari. :P She is most definitely a ringer. If someone like that expresses interest in being a contestant, skip the bullshit and sign them up before they change their mind. 

 

Her back story is certainly interesting. For an artist of her calibre and experience I doubt they would make her go through the usual screening procedures. Is Wendy the 2nd oldest contestant to get a blind audition? The oldest was a 56 yo dude in S10 or S11 I can't remember. Wendy is 55.

A season or two ago there was a 68-year old no chair but I feel like there was a 70-year old who auditioned at some point? I'm probably wrong.

I do think Dan remains the oldest chair turner.

The show is in need of some new life. I think they are looking to spice it up a little. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s got my attention🙌🏻

I agree! I think they are trying to change things up. They have had duos and some trios on the show before but to have 3trios & 1 duo on a team hasn’t happen before. And for all we know there could be more duos/trios that aren’t confirmed yet. I won’t be surprised! 
I am excited to see how this season goes!

Just a hunch, but I’m expecting at least one duo/trio to do well. Not necessarily winning, but making it decently far (Swons, Hello Sunday…)

I think you are right. As of right now my guess is it will be The Joy Reunion. They are seasoned musicians, country genre, and are on Blake’s team.

Given how unpopular groups are with a significant portion of the audience, I don’t understand why they are tripling down on them this season. 

I don’t think duos & trios are that unpopular (maybe on here 😆), the Voice just hasn’t  had a lot on the show before. On The Voice Global they are more common and a trio has won before. 
I personally think they are trying to change things up before they go to one season a year.

I thought that’s why they brought in Ariana. 

My guess is they brought her in because she has 253M Instagram followers (that is 10times more then the three other coaches combine, Blake 4.6M, Kelly 5.2M, John 13.8  😆). Which will equal more viewers of the show. It has been reported that they’re paying her over 25 million to be on the show. The other coaches are reported to get $12M-$16M. They wouldn’t pay her double if she didn’t have something more to bring them. 

 

The Voice hasn’t won many awards since 2017 and I think they are trying to change that by changing things up.


Bringing on more duo/trios and the third most-followed individual on Instagram is going to definitely change things up.

Not to jinx it, but I really hope these battle tapings don't get delayed three times again like last season. Given how weak last season was in terms of battles, that may have been a contributing factor.

Ok, your opinion is that bringing on Ariana and more groups will significantly boost ratings (you didn’t say “significantly,” but that was the implication) and enable the show to win more awards. It is noted, and we shall see. The first few episodes of blinds could see a bump in numbers, but I have to see it first to believe it. The median age of the viewership of the show (60+) probably doesn’t use Instagram. Miley also has many times more followers than the other coaches combined, and she did not boost ratings.

Let's see if they have better song choices for battles this time around or if they go as bizarre as last season with them.

 

Also, I already predict that while Blake is gonna hold on to his steal for later as he always does, he's gonna save the loser of his first battle.

At least some of the head-scratcher choices from last season ended up working out (pov, Your Song, and 10,000 Hours).

 

Do we know if saves are confirmed or is there a chance we'll get two steals back?

I don´t think we know, honestly, but now that we have 48 contestants and there´s no need for the 4 way KO, I´d much rather have 2 steals back, mainly because the saved contestants in the battles are pretty much fodder in the KOs (As proven by S17).

If I had the choice between a save and steal in battles, I would jump ship, knowing that coaches sacrifice their Battle saves in Knockouts. Battle steals at least have a fresh start on a new team, and some battle steals have done well (not to mention that some also get stolen back by their original coach anyway)

A number of steals (Kiara, James) did that, even though they had the option to be saved. That being said, on S17 not only all the battle saves, but also the steals got eliminated in the KOs as well.

 

I mean, being a steal mostly tends to be a disadvantage in itself unless you really win over your coach (Chloe) or you suddenly become the strongest person on an otherwise weak team. (Like Joshua Davis).

Season 8 had so many battle steals go far (also because Pharrell kept letting go of strong members of his team since he was winning with Sawyer)


Some steals have definitely been treated like fodder (Jaclyn Lovey, Lauren Diaz) and some have become team frontrunners (Addison Agen, Gwen’s two steals in S12)

6 days until battles, folks.

Has anyone heard about anyone actually getting tickets? Considering how people have to submit their vaccine verifications they really should have sent out invitations by now.

Yeah, this makes sense. And in general, inherently, battle saves are more of a passive "I'll keep you" while steals are an active "I'll push my button to take you" if that makes sense?

I wonder what Ariana's song choices will be like

 

It will have a shocking resemblance to TPTB's song choices.

I wonder in what way is Leon Bridges involved now this season, because, based on multiple follows in a certain period, he´s definitely involved in some way.

Speaking of S17, I think the stolen ones would've had a better shot had they stayed on their original teams and the saved ones would've had a better shot on another team, if that makes sense. Not that it was that big of a shot but still 👀

 

Anyway, I hope they go back to 2 steals per coach

Marina Chello would have had a better shot on any other team b/c the coaches would have recognized her iconic KO as one of the best.

In the case of Kiara and James, they were both screwed either way, since Gwen blatantly told them they were done for her. (I don´t think she meant to, but it came off that way)

 

She told Kiara she was waiting to steal someone else, and because Kiara was being nice, she went with Kelly so Gwen could use her save.

 

Then she told James that he was on her "save" list all time, which basically meant "you were going to lose the battle either way". And coaches tend to pick favorites without even hearing them sing all the time, they just don´t usually... you know.. blatantly tell them that.

 

I don´t blame him for jumping ship, sadly he fell into the most stacked team of the season.

I think Kelly would have definitely picked her in that KO. John seemed to enjoy Cali a lot though, and I don´t remember Gwen´s reactions to either.

Yep, I think Kelly would've picked her, same for Zoe. Team Gwen was strong overall but had any of them (excluding Rose and Myracle) tanked during KO, James or Kiara could've taken that spot since she seems to make honest decisionst.

I preferred both Zoe and Marina so that would've been nice :haha:

 

But tbh Rose and Myracle wouldn't have tanked anyway knowing them, but yeah, that makes sense. I was a fan of Kiara so I was hoping she'd move on. Her blind was really great.

Oh right, but iirc James was still her first pick for the save. Maybe his only chance would've been to defeat Jake cause Gwen was picking the girls anyway.

Gwen apparently wished she had a steal left for her, but I don't know how she would've done had she been on her KO team
