    Here she is PeterG. 80s rule. Let's hope she gets a chair. So far she's got CeeLo and Blake. None of them know who she is. :lol: This is as good as Xtina not recognizing a fellow MickeyMouser. Wait, Xtina recognized her from PeeWee's Big Adventure and Tommy from rugrats.

    Why do I find it hard to believe that Christina recognized her, but didn't recognize the guy who was on the Mickey Mouse Club with her?

    maybe the speaking voice rang a bell, she's done a crap load of voice overs

    oh and she flat out hates tony and her mind just refused to acknowledge his existence

    Well, he said he wanted to work with Adam but chose CeeLo instead. I think they can work together. And, the steal is back this season.

    OK, Peter. You need to do some more sleuthing. There's somebody auditioning this year that is a relative of a famous singer. Find out who it is.

    Reggae FTW. Please let her sing No Woman, No Cry sometime. And just let her talk. She should not choose Blake. Either of the other 3 would be better for her. I love reggae. Now, I want to listen to Bob Marley.

    Blake knew he had no shot with her. I don't usually like the big power singers, but she is truly charming.

    I like her speaking voice more than her singing voice.

    But I'm excited about the girl they just previewed for next week!

    Adam had the best team after the auditions last year, and he'd be very hard to resist because he's so enthusiastic with his pitches, bvt I don't think he does a very good job of picking songs for his singers.

    That's why you've got to be pretty headstrong to be on his team and insist on songs that showcase you best. He will give in when someone really stands up for themselves.

    After watching Adam waste talent last season, not sure she made the right pick. She's quite good!

    :encore:

    It wasn't sleuthing that helped me figure out about Donna and E. G., it's just that I was (is) a fan of theirs and recognize their voices. I knew E. G. did lots of voiceover work, so her voice was easy to distinguish. So happy for both of them! :cheer2: I googled "The Voice famous relative" and then checked out rickey.org and mgsbigblog for spoiler info, but couldn't find anything. Sorry! :(

    There are a number of good candidates already.
    The battle rounds will be something!

    The "voice famous relative" is Kaley Cuoco's sister. (Penny on The Big Bang Theory.) Both Jim Parsons (Sheldon) & Minim Blaylock (Amy Ferrah Fowler) said she has a beautiful voice so I'm looking forward to her audition.

    I don't know who Kaley Cuoco is. I don't watch the Big Bang Theory. Tried and didn't laugh once.

    Holly sounds pretty similar to season 3's Melanie Martinez

    It was a very good night. The last two -- Jonny and Tessane -- were my favorites. Please don't screw this up Adam. I wish Tessane had picked someone else.

    It was her choice; the right one, I hope.
    I think she is terrific!

    I love TBBT and Jim Parsons is a comedic genius. I use stuff from the show in my classes all the time. :lol: One of the Poodles is exactly like Sheldon when I sit in her spot on the couch. (You have to watch the show in order to understand).

    I have to admit I've been listening to Nic Hawk's version of Hit 'Em Up Style in the car a lot since Monday :)

    Me. Surprised by how much I liked Model Girl, especially since I love Dixie Chicks version of Landslide.
