    I'm with rfisher here. I think Adam and Xtina love "hating" each other in public, but the collaboration for "moves like Jagger" tells another story IMO

    No, I don't really tear up at the fluff bits (in fact, I often FF them), I tear up when the singer gets a good response from the judges/coaches/audience while knowing they are finally realizing their dream (esp. if it's been a hard dream for them to realize). It's like watching a skater give a great performance while knowing how hard they work for it. Dia Frampton made me cry a few times last year and she didn't have any hardship. She was just realizing her dream and she is so invested in her music, that you feel what's she's feeling; a feel-good moment when they do well and the audiece/coaches appreciate it. Besides, music is emotional for me anyway. I get goosebumps at the crescendo in the aria from Madame Butterfly, for Heaven's sake! LOL.

    This show hasn't lost a step, and in fact seems to have elevated the fun quotient.

    The Xtina - Adam banter is all kinds of awesomeness. Christina, actually, owned this episode ... snarky with her fellow mentors, sweet and well-thought words to the singers whether "in" or "out", and she got two title contenders right off the bat.

    Er, I'm not getting the Mouseketeer. Maybe he sounds much better live?

    Loved Opera Dude! So powerful, and he seems so sweet.

    Rocker chick was good, but I'm gonna have to see/hear her again to know whether she'll me like so many rocker chicks before her have.

    I liked the sob stories, because they got me invested quickly, and if it's like last season The Voice will not draw the personal stuff to pander their pets (coughGokeycough) for months and months like Idol does.

    The previews! Whee ...

    There's a Bo Bice type ... hope he's as frigging as Bice himself!

    Adam's edibleness during the performance clip just explodes from the screen. Good god that man is sexy.

    Ce-Lo stroking his cat. So Dr. Evilish, but so Ce-Lo as well. And his sparkly, spikey, red jumpsuit for the mentor's Prince medley is Liberace regenerated.

    There were several outstanding contestants last night.
    I liked Jesse Campbell and the "Opera Dude", in particular.

    Choosing the right mentor is crucial here.
    Part of what I love about this show is watching to see whether they chose wisely.
    I love the "vibe"/competition/admiration between them.

    The backstories allow me to get to know the "Voices" and appreciate how they have developed/grown as the season progresses.

    I think I'm the only one who didn't like Opera Guy. I found him smarmy. Wasn't a fan of nose ring growling rocker either. Jesse had a good voice. Country girl - I'm meh on her at the moment. We'll see what Blake can do with her.

    So excited for this season. I came in way too late last year and missed all the fun.

    Someone spill the Jordis rumor? I have her "Man Who Sold the World" on my iPod - woman was brilliant.

    I didn't watch this show last season and saw it for the first time last night. OMG--it was fab!! I can't wait until the 2 hr episode tonight.

    I don't think I have a favorite, but the opera singer was most impressive. I didn't get the country girl who performed first, but I'll reserve judgement until I hear her sing something else.

    She posted on her Facebook page that she would be on, though it was indicated that she would be on the show last night. So I'm wondering if she got cut. Meh.

    If so, then nobody turned around for her because all the singers who are picked by the mentors will be shown. Maybe her spot is tonight.

    I thought last year that it took four to six episodes of auditions before each judge had their group?

    They're all the same colour in the dark.



    P.S. According to wikipedia, Dia Frampton's CD, "Red" was released on December 6th and sold 10,000 copies in the first week. Dia now only needs to sell 2,737,001 more copies to better Kelly Clarkson's first album.

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    It was such fun getting to watch the show and post in real time with the Other Coasters last night. Sad to be banished back to 3 hours behind tonight

    Smart ass Petey. Besides, Dia as runner-up must only match* Justin Guarini's sales.

    The Voice winner guy whose name I've already forgotten is the one who has to match up against Kelly.

    *And, seriously, she - at least - probably has pipped the mop top if her singles downloads are counted.

    You are just an AI snob. Go on and enjoy Grampa Steven, JLO and Dawg. I'd rather drool over Adam and at Xtina's wit. I don't care which show's winner makes album sales. I enjoy them while they're on and don't give a thought to them later.

    Jordis' facebook page seemed to hint that she was supposed to be on Sunday's show, bur who knows how they divided up the auditions for viewing.

    See, I thought that was THE BEST PART. I could do without the voices getting in the way of the judging banter.

    I don't think it's nasty so much as...hey, we're both We're both single. It's the adult version of the third grader who whacks the girl he likes on the head. It's that kind of flirty-flirty that's not really serious. Just kind of fun for everyone involved.

    I'll be thinking about how Beefy and Gen are having to wait to watch. Prince medly up first. Cee-lo in red sparkles. Xtina in back leather. She has lost weight and looks hot.

    I didn't watch last night's show, so I'm catching up on that now and then will start on tonight's episode. Loving it already - and let me repeat how much I appreciate that there are no deliberately bad acts in the auditions.
