    :cheer2: And they are singing together. Start Me Up. Xtina is her slutty awesomness. CeeLo traded Purrfect for a pink bird. :lol:
    Scottish rocker up first: Adam, CeeLo and Blake all turn: he goes with Blake. Interesting. Maybe he figures he won't have to compete with Adam or CeeLo.

    This is one of the few shows that when the judges perform I actually want to hear it :)

    The yodler is actually very good. Blake, Adam and CeeLo turn and she goes with Blake in spite of Adam's pleas for her to go with him.

    Xtina has lost weight.

    Yodel girl is smart to go with Blake. He's featured his favorites on his shows, and she'd be a hit with his fans.

    :rofl: At them saying what they've done with their singers. That is a very hard song to sing. Of course she was going with Xtina.

    If they aren't front loading opening night, this season will be incredible with talent.

    The girl who went with Xtina annoyed me "what will you do for me even after the show ends" :rolleyes:

    I'd have asked the same if all 4 chairs turned around for me. :shuffle: She clearly knew she sang well and at this point it's who can help her the most.
    This guy has a nice story, but he's elimination fodder early on. Too many better singers.

    I think it was a legit question - considering the other winners have been not be promoted like AI does it's winners.

    OMG They need to give this girl another chance. She made me cry. Too bad she didn't do it the first time. Sniff. No woman, no cry is my favorite Bob Marley song.

    Blake cracks me up. "We could do matchy things"

    Do you think they will bring her back for the wild card auditions? I sure hope so.

    But other people have asked this before and the only really honest answer is that it depends on how they perform during the season. There have been people who were fought over at this round who get cut quickly if they don't do well in later rounds.

    I love Ceelo giggling when the final guy picked him. The judges really do make this show.

    There was some really good talent tonight. They all need to add elimination fodder on the next few shows. They have bigger teams this time. 16 and they're supposed to give the singers a chance to change coaches at some point.

    Still liking this show.

    I forgot was a great salesman Adam was. :lol:

    I wish the Jamaican girl had made it, too. But, I liked the fact that she asked to sing again even though she knew they couldn't change their mind. I would have preferred her to Devon.

    No. He's got a bird now.

    I'm not a country/western fan but I loved yodel girl. She's a real throwback country singer. I have never rewound my tivo for anyone else before but I did it for her. I think she's ready for Nashville right now. I liked the bluesy guy with the hat too. I didn't like the Jamaica girl or last year's guy with the beard....I didn't think their voices were all that good, & he especially doesn't have any star quality.

    Catching up to episode one now. I love, love, love yodel girl. LOVE her. She should probably get started on the Adam restraining order now.

    Anyone watching tonight?

    ETA: not too subtle product placement as the country guy shows Carson pics on his Sprint phone.

    :rofl: ass spanking :rofl: This is what I love most about this show. Way more than just the talent.

    Pretty young Black guy is really good. He's got the voice and the looks that could win this year. Xtina wants a private concert with him. There are some really good singers this season. The battle rounds will be brutal.

    I'm now starting! I think the first girl is four chair turn around for canon fodder. She is so flat when she tries to get the high notes. That's the only reason I see for them all turning around.

    So thankful for this show. Even the bad ones aren't so bad that they make my ears bleed.

    There are many talented singers, even at this stage.
    I can imagine how difficult the "Battle Rounds" will be.

    I auditioned for this season, and they were looking for BIG voices. I made it to the second round, and it was interesting to see what they were weeding out and what they were keeping. They cut some spectacular singers who could have done very well, but they weren't belters. And then they let some big voices who were lesser singers through. And for the record-- the 'blind audition' thing is only for the four TV judges. All of us sang directly in front of early round judges who could see us as plain as day.

    During my second round audition, I was selected to sing first in my group of 10. As soon as I announced my song choice, the judge put her head down and started playing on her computer. I knew I wasn't getting through, but she was very complimentary. She essentially said that there were a lot of me this season, and I didn't pop as much as some of the other mes. Overall it was a fun experience, though.

    P.S. One of the 10 in my group was arrested just before we went in to sing. Some poor older gentleman got pulled from the group after us and was thrown in to the audition with us as a last minute replacement.

    Very cool Jayar, round 2 is nothing to sneeze at. Did you have an appropriate "story" to go with your audition? (you don't have to share it...) I like The Voice, but I do wonder if you don't have a good story behind "your voice" they wouldn't let you get very far.

    Did you even get to see Adam? :drama: Or Xtina? Or the bird? Congratulations for making it to the 2nd round. You should try out again.

    Jayar, it's great to have a first-hand description of the audition process.
    What are the rules about trying out again?

    I wonder if luck enters into it in terms of whether you audition earlier or later. They've definitely had singers on the last two nights who weren't belters, but maybe those singera already had auditioned for the producers by the time you got to audition and they were looking to round out the group with some belters.
