Yeah there just some haters in this if you think this season of the voice is ‘bad’ then go watch X Factor and youll realize why this season of the Voice is probably the best and all the top 12 singers of the Voice are 10 times better than the ‘talent’ they got for X Factor right now…

People who hate Kat are people who just dont care for her style in general. She was literally the best performer out of the bunch and her vocals are not bad or badly pitched, some people just dont care for vibrato, raspy and dramatic vocals because their simple minded ears cant decipher it.

Cee Lo is a great coach dont hate him just because people arent ‘voting’ for his artists and dont trip if youre missing Usher because now it seems like theyre doing a tag team of coaches as Usher and Shakira should br back for the next season.

The Instasave is rigged. And the person ‘saved’ each week (Kat last week and Caroline this week) were never in the bottom but just put them there so people feel obligatex to save them when they didnt have the worst performances. The top 100 itunes charts the morning after voting were usually the truth and coincided with who went home. So far the twp that ranked the lowest have gone home (Josh and Jonny last week and Austin and Kat this week) and the third from the bottom that should be there instead has avoided the actual bottom 3 (Austin last week, and either Jackie or Will this week).. and the ones that were saved (Kat last week and Caroline this week) outranked half of their competetors on the charts… so far ive noticed that pattern.

Production can always do what they want and dont think of the order of who they announce safe as the actual order of how they did with votes. This week Cole actually ranked the highest but they keep promoting it as if Matthe Schuler dominated so i feel like their forcing people to like Matt in order for him to win. Kid has a great voice but i really dont ever care for an obvious frontrunner and his cocky confidence could be his downfall.

Im glad Caroline is still in it.. im surprised all 3 from Adam’s havnt slipped to the bottom because i dont think either of them have performex as great as they did before live shows so their all lucky they established fan bases.

I do think these are the best singers theyve gotten in a top 12 and now its just sifting through the best and so therefore we will speak lowly of some of them as if their horrible but in reality theyre still greater than a lot of singers out there. Like i personally find some of these guys boring as hell but i know theyre still technically spot on singers (like Ray, Will, and Matt)…

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,,,

I figured the Voice was rigged when Celo and Blake chose everyone on their team who were not that good. Celo never choose AA for his team for the finals. And some of the AA are very talented. Christina and Adam ‘s team are usually based on talent. Blake has had a bad season. For some reason the Voice is not very good this time. Something is missing. Something is off. I just don’t like Celo as a judge. I am beginning to feel the same way about Adam.

I agree with you. I am not crazy about Christina either. I think she is stuck on herself. I still like Adam and Blake but wish Usher had been back.

I don’t understand the Twiitter Save if 1/2 of us can’t use it. It says Closed Previously Recorded. Also, it makes me angry that we don’t get to see how our votes panned out. I would have let go Caroline and Jacquie as they gave the weakest performances. I have perfect pitch so I know when someone is flat or sharp and Jacquie ( although I liked her earlier performances) was under the pitch in Clarity. Austin blew my socks off so was very upset he was sent packing. Kat gave a standout performance and don’t understand America’s thinking.

I really don’t like kats voice, and her pitch is usually well off with the song she is singing, honestly ceelo made a huge mistake saving her, and i believe josh or jonny had much more to show than she did, austin probably deserved the save the most, but that would have left ceelo with no contestants left and NBC wouldn’t want that.

I think what you’re confusing with as a pitch issue is actually her natural vibrato.

I really now believe that the competition may be rigged. How can America vote for the best ‘voice’ in a competition when half of the population is prevented from voting? Not making sense! I listened to Mathew sing and the beginning of his song was horrible, yet someone is trying to convince us that he was amazing. Everybody in my household heard the most unfortunate first half of his song. Is there a bit of mind control being tried here, and just in case that does not work, prevent half of America from voting? The only contestant who has done a great job every time of asking, is Tessanne Chin. In a fair competition, Tessanne would win hands down!! I certainly hope she does!!

I always believed that show was rigged from the begining. Too many great singers were voted off and last season was my last to whatch it. Smells…….

I think Kat is amazing. I wish she had stayed. Caroline and Jacquie are cute, but that’s about it. And I know I’m probably the ONLY person in America who thinks this–but I can’t STAND Tessanne. She seems like a LOVELY person, but for some reason I find her performances a bit irritating.

To me it’s been all boring second week in a row.
Caroline is uber boring. It’s the kind of voice you can listen to one song and it becomes enough. I’m glad scary face kat went home. Just about the time. I hope the next to go will be other long bearded and boys with guitars.
Come on people if you aspire to earn a living as a performer – prove that you can perform and entertain. Voice isn’t enough to make it in this business.
I’m hoping for tesanne to win however she needs a new stylist. Way to short unflattering skirts! Stick to vneck tops, knee length skirts and accentuate your waist with a wide belt to improve proportions.

I still don’t get it! Caroline Pennell is ‘cute’. The song choice was terrible, but somehow she survives. Will Champlin is another one I don’t understand. His nervous vibrato get’s me nervous. But the biggest most mystifying survivor for me is Ray Boudreaux, who usually spends a good portion of his songs searching for the right pitch! Then again, the ‘ he or she’s so cute’ rule always knocks some more talented singers out in the early rounds, so I guess we’ll have to live with Americas opinion.
I will miss Kat enormously. She was one of the few this year who had the whole ‘performer’ package going.( Although Tessanne was always my #1, now she is my clear fave to win!) Like Juliette Simms, I think CeeLo was a) very disappointed that once again, he may have lost to lesser winners. And b) CeeLo will have Kat wrapped up in with a management contract as soon as the season is completed. One can only hope!

I totally agree with the Juliette Simms/Kat comparison! I genuinely don’t understand the Kat hatred; I don’t remember everyone getting all up in arms like that over Simms.

For me there is a fine line here between the beauty of simplicity and extravagance. “Leaving On A Jet Plane” was a drag. It was lovely for John Denver and Peter, Paul & Mary. As sweet as Caroline’s voice is, the song was far too “old” and far too easy for her to sing. “If I Were Your Woman” is timeless; it still send chills up my spine when I hear Gladys Knight sing it. Tessanne has an amazing voice, but she oversang this song and lost me. (Sometimes the biggest voices literally hurt my ears, which I suppose shows my age!) The final 8 are very talented singers. Johnny was my personal favorite. He was done in by that all-wrong-for-him Phil Collins song. The singer who ultimately wins my vote will be the singer who keeps it natural, forms a connection with the audience and doesn’t feel the necessity to prove he or she can hit the highest note.

Right! We are still watching it here in the Pacific Northwest, too! Each area of this great nation is diverse, and ALL areas should be allowed to vote. What’s the deal?!?!?

Overall last night’s performances were lackluster by everyone.

It sort of became a battle of defaults.. I personally dont think either Kat nor Caroline should have been in the bottom this week, but thats sadly how it crumbles.

Austin deserved to go he hasnt been impressive for a while now.

I still think its rigged how they do this whole Instasave crap… i think Caroline wasnt even in the bottom i mean she outranked most of the others on the top 100 itunes chart when i checked this morning. So i feel like they put her in place of someone who was actually the third lowest votes (according to the downloads list that may have been either Will or Jackie) in order to self fulfill the idea of Instasave because many wouldnt believe she is in the bottom… Austin and Kat probably did recieve the lowest votes by the public and were going home anyways. As i believe Jonny and Josh were lowest votes last week so i really think production is milking this whole Instasave and thats pissing me off about the show but otherwise the talent is high this week.

I petsonally dont go for the obvious and i think Matthew and James may be frontrunners but are plateauing both of their performances werent up to standard last night and i thought both could have been in danger if they didnt already establish fan bases.

I still say watch out for Caroline, Jackie, and Cole in this competition. They could creep up with amazng performances and vocals as well.

I agree Austin has so much potential. Caroline is too boring and she may be able to sing certain songs but her performance tonight was horrible. She was boring and put no personality into her performer, completely ruined that song for me.
