    Me too. Really good so far and I like all the pros too. How long is this going to run? I think each pro has two singers if they eliminate one a week (none this week) then 8 weeks? Right up till the olympics.

    And not much in the way of bad auditions.

    I'm always amazed how much Robin Thicke looks like his dad.

    I only tuned in in time to see John Legend perform "Ordinary People" with a hulking football player with a great voice. Can anyone fill me in on what I missed?

    ETA: Robin Thicke searching for a partner/teammate. I love the sound of Robin's voice and his songs. Unfortunately, his lyrics tend to be kind of stupid. He chooses a young lady named Olivia Chisolm. They're performing "Lost Without You."

    A really good guy who sang with Jennifer Nettles. He's currently in the lead.

    Robin and Olivia need a room. That is excellent chemistry on stage.

    rfisher, I think the show will run for 9 weeks. If I'm understanding correctly, there will be no eliminations. Everyone gets to stay to the end.

    OMG! I didn't know this was on!

    Is it one or two hours?

    Excellet! I guess they score points each week to determine the winner? So far, I want to hear everybody sing more. I'm just imagining how this format would have been with the Voice mentors. Adam, Xtina, Blake and Ceelo singing each week.

    Kelly's boy was the weakest of the 4. He sings well, but is holding back. Maybe he'll get better.

    Also, their accents are different but otherwise their voices are almost identical.

    The episode is 2 hours.

    Kelly Clarkson and her partner, Jason Farol sing a song that I probably should recognize but don't. They land in 4th place.

    John Legend chooses Bridget Carrington as his second teammate. They sing "Tonight."

    My only criticism of the show is that the arrangements so far have all been a bit dull. I get that it's supposed to be all about the singing, but it's comes off kind of like really good karaoke.

    Robin already setting the scene for a fantasy bromance with John. He definitely watched The Voice.

    Jennifer picks John Glosson (from her very own hometown.) They sing "Stay." It's really good. Lands them in 3rd place.

    jennifer's john was my favorite so far
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Robin and Alexis Foster perform "Magic." Finally something uptempo.

    Robin/Olivia were better together.

    The three pros not singing rank the duet. I think.
