    She was eight. I doubt she was scheming her way to get a million hits on youtube (which probably didn't even exist then). The adults should have known better. And acted like adults.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    These are the same adults that let her sing Genie In A Bottle at 16

    "Gotta rub me the right way, honey..."

    So... I don't expect much out of them. But Jesus, girl is talented.

    She's good though! but still freaky.

    I liked how she also made fun of herself for forgetting the words to the National Anthem.

    I want more picture of Adam. Naked if possible. Or half naked. And if Blake could indulge the same, we could draw comparisons.

    As for Xtina, I thought her voice was great in the little snip she did last episode

    Nice article that commends the casualness at which The Voice presented its four gay singers, all of whom advanced to the knockout round.

    It wonders where these type of singers are on American Idol, but still gives AI props and rather centers nicely on the accomplishment by The Voice of making the presence of its Lesbian and gay contestants part of the fabric versus something to be pandered.

    I couldn't agree more. Even better, it appears that one of these four, Vicci, is a favorite to go far.

    She may or may not be the only one who advances. Gay Teddy Bear has a tough knockout battle on his hands versus Porny Black Mormon. Not sure about Bald Butchie's chances ... if she's against one of the dueters, then those chances are very good though.

    As the article implies, it may be more to do with their ages than anything else. All 4 are well over 21, so their bios naturally lean more towards their adult lives and, if they have partners, viewers may be interested, gay or straight.

    Idol skews younger, so the bios are about their hometowns, parents, and pets. Most of the time, the people accompanying Idol contestants to auditions have been family members. Occasionally, I'll see someone in the audition round who appears to be there alone... I wonder if their partner is there and Nigel just edits them out.

    I think it's also that the Voice has a lot of singers who are mid-career - they've put out albums, they've been performing, they have fans. They're less concerned with how their sexuality will affect their career chances. And maybe more realistic that, if they don't win this competition, it's not a good idea to alienate their existing fan base by denying who they are.

    I was going to say I wondered if the difference was they were selected based on voice and not looks (Butchy tatoo woman), but they had to go through a couple of audition rounds before singing for the mentors. I do think AI sends certain looks through or eliminates them accordingly. This is the first singing event where the singers are allowed to be themselves.

    I really hope the mentors can take the time to do this again or even NBC opts with 4 new mentors each season. Real singers picking real singers and offering real critique rather than a has-been bass player, a stoner and a lip-syncing booty shaker. I'd like to see a sing-off between Xtina and JLo. Xtina would totally

    I've enjoyed JLo on AI, and I think Steven Tyler is a great addition - but I agree that having judges who can all sing most of the contestants under the table is pretty fabulous.

    A sing-off between Xtina and JLo would be a very unfair fight. There would be no enjoyment (for me) in that. Now, a sing-off between Xtina and Jennifer Hudson (keeping in the AI family) would be

    True. I guess that would be unfair for JLo to take on Xtina. I'd put my on Xtina in a battle with JHud. I think Xtina's voice has gotten better with age.

    JLo v Paula (keeping totally in the AI family) would be a pretty fair fight

    ... if not exactly the clash of the titans.

    Ladies. The time has come. For you to. Lipsynch. For. Your. Life.

    Aw, at least Paula was once capable of doing a decent truly live performance (even if the vocals aren't technically stellar).

    Jlo's voice has always been pretty bad even in the recorded version

    That's a hard one. I think I'd bet on Paula (assuming she was sober). She seems feisty and might knock JLo out of the ring.

    Paula would dance her under the table too, even at 73 or however old she is.
