TV Tuesday The Voice Part 2

About a month ago, I blogged about my surprising connection to one of The Voice artists this season. (If you missed it, you can catch up here.) His name is Josh West, and he’s fast becoming famous as much for his hair as his talent.:-) I’m happy to say that not only did he get that 4-chair turn on the blind auditions, but he’s now made it through both the Battle Round and the Knock-Out Round of the competition. It’s been a long wait in between his performances, and sadly his Battle Round got montaged, although The Voice did finally post the full performance on YouTube. So last nights Knock-Out Round was the first time I’d really seen him on TV in weeks.

TV Tuesday The Voice

Until the current season (12), I hadn’t ever watched The Voice. When it debuted back in 2011, I guess I didn’t take much notice. I thought it was just another American Idol type show, and while I never really watched Idol either, what I heard about it through the grapevine didn’t really make me want to watch it. I know that a number of stars were born from the show, who’ve gone on to have very successful music careers, which is awesome. But what really bothered me about the show is the judges’ (mainly Simon Cowell’s) cutting remarks, which often seemed unnecessarily cruel. I didn’t have to be a fan of the show to hear about stuff like that, and watching singers, whether they had genuine talent or not, being humiliated on national television held no appeal for me at all. So when The Voice came along, I simply wrote it off, thinking it was probably more of the same.
