The Voice ~~ Is it Me or are these Singers BORING?

As I’ve stated in the past. I love Prime Time Reality TV. I love rooting for the undiscovered being discovered. I think shows like American Idol, The Voice, Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, etc are great for giving some folks their shot at stardom. We have learned from the past that just because someone is kicked off early, if they have “it” they can still do well. (Jennifer Hudson, Daughtry, Clay Aiken, etc). Lately some of the winners are forgotten as the credits roll and the confetti falls.

And since I don’t vote, I can’t blame America for getting it wrong.

Currently we have American Idol and Voice going at the same time. Sure the old girl (Idol) is getting up there, but I can honestly say, the people who made the top 10 can all sing and for the most part, might have a bad week, but don’t bore me week after week. I wish I could say the same for the Voice singers. I have been watching all season and honestly can’t pick one out of a crowd by name. They just don’t “grab” me. They aren’t making me ticked that they are in the bottom or even kicked off. Sure I like a couple of them (that rocker chick is pretty good – but once again, I don’t know her name yet.

Maybe I’m in the minority. Maybe you don’t think they are as boring as I do. Trust me, I want them to do well. I really do. I want to root for someone but not just because they have some sob story behind them. I don’t mean to be mean but just because you grew up poor, dad died, the car got a flat tire, and the kid next store stole your toys as a kid, doesn’t mean you sing well. (Although, you are perfect for singing many country songs).

And worse, some of them sing well but are still BORING! How do you pull that off? I’ll tell ya, lack of personality. For example, the country girl isn’t the best singer, but at least she has personality and I want to root for her. She makes it fun. Same with the rocker chick.

Ok, I’m done ranting. Sorry, I was watching what I missed the other night and realized we are one more week in and I still am bored. Sniffle sniffle.

At least Biggest Loser is on tonight and I can’t wait to see them walk out! Now that will be exciting.

PS. Hope you liked your bonus post today  😀

I’m Pretty Sure American Idol, The Voice or X Factor Will Not Be Calling

I love to sing while driving in my truck. When I’m traveling down the road I can sing any song by any singer. Perfect pitch, perfect tone and I have the “it” factor. Forget Celine Dion or Mariah Cary, I have a better eight octave voice. And Adelle, she ain’t got anything on me.

The problem is, the minute I step out of the pink truck, my magical voice sounds more like Elmer Fudd. Ok, maybe not that bad but I’m pretty sure dogs are howling somewhere.

Why is it, in our own minds we are awesome and yet others tell us to “keep our day jobs”?

Take my sister. She sings in a very high pitch. People tell her she is a great singer. Me, my ears bleed. (sorry sis, but you know I’ve always teased you on this).

Music tastes is so subjective anyways. Why else do we get mad watching American Idol, The Voice or X Factor when people we love – the judges dismiss? We all have wondered at least once or twice what they heard cuz that person was awesome. Then others we hate and they love.

For example, I’m watching The Voice as I type this. These two dudes are singing and I’m totally hating it. Yet CeeLo loves them. Then the kid prior was great and no one turned around. Craziness.

On American Idol, some people only tune in for the first episodes to see the “bad” people. Personally I hate those episodes. I hate listening to bad singers. I’m ok with them making fun of them. After all I love me some good humor. But honestly, if I wanted to hear bad singing I’d listen to people in their showers.

Hmm, on second thought, maybe I should stick to listening to people in their cars cuz listening to them in the shower might lead to some Peeping Tom charges against me. A silly way to get a infamous mug shot on the internet if you ask me.

Oh well…

I’ll keep singing in the pink truck and I’m pretty sure the people driving by will wonder what awesomeness they are missing. Either that or they are only pointing and laughing at the sight I must be.
