    Stats for those in the poll are below.

Michelle Chamuel has a 2013 album listed on her Wikipedia page entitled "All I Want".

    Dia's album "Red" hit #104 on the pop chart. The single was "The Broken Ones".

    Vicci's album "Vicci" was released in 2012 and included two single releases, "Come Along" (featuring Cee Lo Green) and "I Can Love".

    Beverly McClellan had two albums released in 2011, one self-titled and the other called "Fear Nothing". No mention at Wikipedia of single releases.

    Jermaine Paul has not released an album, but has a tentative title: "Finally". "I Believe in This Life" was released as a single in 2012.

    Who cares about the singers. Xtina looks amazing. Both she and CeeLo have lost weight.

    i think the biggest stars are the judges who were all exposed to new audiences and carson daily who comes off better than his counterparts on other shows

    katrina parker out out a cd last wk and she sounds really good

    Ryan Tedder :scream: what is this show's obsession with him? :huh: No surprise he's paired with Adam.

    Cher stole Tina Turner's wig!

    The only Voice alumni I've noticed with ANY post-show activity are Vicci Martinez (because she's from here and performs locally pretty regularly), Dia Frampton (toured here right after S1) and Chris Mann, who had a surprisingly swank show in a large venue several months ago. no clue how ticket sales went, but it made me think he's got a following.

    My local radio station gave a lot of airplay to Vicci Martinez's first single (luckily, I liked it) and has just started playing the other song. It's one of those "I <3 Radio" stations, so it probably got airplay in other places too.

    I wasn't particularly a fan of Dia's when she was on the show, but a local library got her CD...and I think it's really great! :respec:

    Danielle Bradbery talks about her album release date and some of the songs on the album written by people with interesting connectins to the reality TV world. Plus a video cover of Carrie Underwood’s “See You Again”.

    From Wikipedia:

    He's also worked with Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Jesse McCartney, Akon, Colbie Caillat, Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, B.o.B, The Wanted, Far East Movement, Gym Class Heroes, Ellie Goulding, Trey Songz, Jason Derulo, Cody Simpson, Lady Antebellum, Marina and the Diamonds, Dan Black, and Lights.

    Or in other words...EVERYBODY. :lol:

    One of the local TV stations plays music when they segue to commercials during the morning local news program. They played a Cassadee Pope song the other morning.

    Of the above list I have 2 downloads from Nicholas David & 1 from Tony Lucca (Baby One More Time :D). Not on the list are 2 from Michelle Chamuel & 1 from Kris Thomas, plus I bought a duet he did with Pam Tillis. Michelle's Somewhere Only We Know is beautiful. I wouldn't have any of the winners' music as a gift.

    Xtina and CeeLo could have handled that one on their own. Adam was OK, but I don't think it was in his best key. Blake Shelton is so out-classed vocally, it's not even funny. They should just let Blake have the intro and then let the others do the heavy lifting.

    Preview performance from tonight's first show of the season: Matthew Schuler &#8211; Cough Syrup

    I thought I had heard that Cassadee Pope will be doing a reality TV show around putting together her new album. But there's nothing at Wikipedia about his. Has anyone heard anything about this? Wait...googled it. Found this article. It includes this:

    Article about The Voice winning the Emmy for best reality TV program.

    Nigel Lythgoe's twitter response to that win:

    VIDEO PREMIERE: Danielle Bradbery&#8217;s &#8220;The Heart Of Dixie&#8221;

    Danielle Bradbery Joins The Brad Paisley Tour, Album Due November 19. Chris Young will also be on this bill.

    The Voice 5 &#8211; Backstage Behind the Scenes &#8211; Video (Kinda boring, IMHO... ;) )

    I Love Rock N Roll :cheer2: When my son was 4 he used to tell my mother, Mamaw, I love rock and roll, put another dime in the jukebox baby. She was going to buy him a drum set until I convinced her that was a bad idea. It sounded much better on the Bose speakers than on my computer and I'm just astounded at Xtina's transformation.

    with the voice I think its just as much about the judges as it is the singers but then I never really hear of them again.. unlike X factor or even Idol where I know I'm far more familiar?? I do like X factor though... but partially for the competition between the judges..

    Yet, the Voice has the highest ratings of all 3 X factor is doing very badly this year.

    The 17 yo had an interesting voice but she needs a lot of training. But Donna blew her out of the water, but she should have gone with Xtina.

    Just started watching--I don't think Xtina thought much of Caroline, who was meant to be a muppet. The only thing I can imagine her singing is in a commercial for some green/eco-friendly product.

    Not impressed with striped pants girl either--her look was better than her voice.

    I liked Shakira, but Xtina is my girl and I like Ceelo much better as a singer than Usher.

    This guy is one of the finalists. I'm calling it now. If he picks the right coach. I think he should go with Xtina.

    Matthew Shuler (sp?) has a great voice, but I had a hard time understanding some of the words. I think I'm old now. :fragile:

    I had a hard time hearing the girl at the pizza place tonight. I asked her to repeat herself about 4 times. I'm totally old.

    That said, Shuler has a lot of charisma and I think he should pick someone to help refine his technique.
