    Cee Lo Green has announced that he's giving up his judge's chair for good. (I do wonder what's up with the court case, and whether that has anything to do with it. :slinkaway) He wasn't scheduled for the winter anyway, so interesting timing of the announcement.

    I'd like to see two women on the panel, but I doubt they'll go for that. Hmmm...

    I'm excited to see the new season start Monday.

    I'll miss Cee Lo. He had an ear for the quirky singers that were passed up by the other judges. Nicholas David and Cole Vosbury were 1 chair turns and made it to near the end. Wonder if they'll just recruit Usher for the chair or they'll keep it as a revolving door spot for a new celeb each season?

    The radio gossip this morning was that he was a diva backstage and threw a lot of tantrums. :lol: Said he was going to be fired, so he quit to save face. I'll miss that little glitter ball of oddness.

    CeeLo Green’s Exit from ‘The Voice’ Done to Avoid Firing Says Insider

    Maybe Green wanted as much free time as possible before he goes to jail. :shuffle:

    Anyone else watching?

    Coaches performing each others hits. Blake singing Hips Don't Lie was :lol: But he actually wasn't too bad.

    I can't believe they all immediately turned for Wrecking Ball girl. (Of course I hate that song, so I may be biased. :shuffle: )

    but every contestant who sings it is almost 100% guaranteed to be so much better than the original, it's like a little artificial boost

    I think Xtina is a better coach because she's a better singer, but Shakira is more fun.

    I love Shakira pulling out the number of Twitter followers she has compared to the other 3.

    i dont think christina is a better coach. and i dont think she arranges her songs well when left to her own devices. so technically she's a better singer, but the end result is less compelling than the sum of her parts. it's like a cop program.

    Someone should do an age check on that kid. I don't think he's 16 yet.

    Well, they have to have some no-chair turns. And he had the sympathy factor. Probably his audition tape was better, because he's losing his child's voice.

    I love the blind aspect to the auditions on The Voice, but I'm feeling desensitized by the constant stream of sob story audtions.

    Me too. I'm completely immune to their backstory. The only effect it has on me is potentially negative. -Like this guy- he's a wonderful singer, but with six kids he should be working a day job and being Daddy.

    Well I didn't completely understand the "my brother saved my life" angle they were pushing.

    I enjoyed Dawn and Oats, Oaks whatever their name is.

    Adam is very intense.

    edited to add: Dawn and Hawkes

    Dawn and Hawkes play like they belong on my playlist. There is some amazing indie/folk on the radio right now that they can cover for this show.

    I like the rocker guy! Didn't not see him going for Shakira though. So Blake has 0 artists so far.

    And we are transported back to the '70's. Good, but not for me now.

    Usher said that they had more 4 chair turns this season than any other season
