The Voice..continued

So yes, I have been sucked into the Voice.

I have gone through the blind auditions, the knock-outs, and the stuff that comes after.I have seen them with their mentors and advisors and my head, quite frankly, is spinning.Telling singers they have to be open and honest? Jeez, I thought they pretty much were. Shows what I know, right?

I still have switched allegiance to the Voice from American Idol.Sure,it was nice to see raw talent like Carrie Underwood, but these seasoned voices rock!

The Voice

I have watched American Idol in the past.

(Past being the operative word)

There are only so many times you can watch singers, good, bad and in-between,fight to get recognition and win competitions…until now.Sure they might win the contest but outside of Kelly Clarkson and maybe Jordan Sparks, where are they now?

I admit when The Voice came on the air, I kind of hung on it as another American Idol.Until this week,when on Monday night, I never thought I’d be watching a competition again.Now I have found The Voice.

What really intrigues me is the concept of the blind auditions.The ability to judge someone by their voice, not how their appearance.It really makes me appreciate that music is universal when you listen first and then look.I was pleasantly surprised. They have gotten me as a convert.I’ll be following the show through this season.

Fit Bit Flu

I was hit with a GI bug around 2am this morning.Not much fun.

The sleep I lost caused me to sleep a little later and wave “buh-bye” to 15,000 steps today.I realized from the get go that it is more important for me to get rid of this bug than to kick over another 15,000 steps.

I am going out now to give the girls their last stroll of the night with me.Jim took the first walk this morning, well, by default.It’ll be interesting to see what the final number is, as I just want to come back in, take a hot shower, watch American Idol, and go to bed.

Stay tuned….

Oh, BTW? My last number for the night is 10,269…not to shabby.
