If you were one of the many TV viewers who were annoyed by NBC’s incessant promotional campaign for their Idol competitor, the Voice, then let’s hope that you were able to watch the show (if not, watch it online!), because it was actually pretty damn awesome.
The premise is slightly complicated, but a lot of fun. There are four coaches – Christina, Cee-Lo, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton – who must pick 8 singers each for their teams, judging them only on their voices. The coaches then compete to coach the 8 to stardom.
The show is fresh and fun, without much of the base “making fun of the untalented” that American Idol specializes in. And it has so far been a hit, providing NBC the best ratings in 2 years.
Also, you should watch because two kick-ass lesbians were chosen by Christina and Cee Lo: the sexy and sultry Vicci Martinez and the intense and likable Beverly McClellan.
