I do not know about you but NBC’s ‘The Voice’ has reached the end of the line and unless they return to airing once a year, changing some of the judges, and finding exceptional talent, it is a waste of airspace

SPRING SESSION 2017


BLOGPOST #2,379 AT THE AICP-END

ONE HUNDRED-AND-EIGHTY DAYS AFTER ELECTION DAY



Can the producers of the Voice either make some much-needed changes or dump the show?
Kihei, HI, 05-07-2017 Sunday:  Today, I am going to slip into something different from what we have discussed throughout the week and that is the NBC talent show, “The Voice.”  That is correct, I your host am going to discuss this decidedly downhill show, the one with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Alicia Keys.
There was a time when this show was ‘cutting edge, a show that discovered unknown talent that four quality judges nurtured into stars.  Like everyone else, I commenced watching it because of my kids and we used to sit there eating salt-seeds and other pupus watching the stars of tomorrow. 
As the seasons went by and judges began to change, only two remained from season to season, Blake and Adam.  I think the two of them interact well together but there are times when I sit there gaping open-mouthed at the stupidity that passes for judging nowadays. 
Blake is perhaps the best because he actually seems to know of what he speaks and does whereas Adam sits there like a babbling idiot, an absent-minded boy-man, and tattoos running the gamut of his exposed flesh and now with a Billy Idol-style hair color that makes him look like your typical Honolulu mahu prancing around on a Saturday night.
I used to think that Alicia and Gwen actually had some intelligence and knew how to coach the future generations of stars but as time progresses, it seems as though it has become more about the judges and their interactions than it is about discovering the BEST talent. 
Blake and Gwen—now an ‘item’ as both of them jettisoned their spouses so they could bone one another—are more like high school kids doing it behind the football stadium on a Friday night after the BIG game. 
On the one hand, the pair want to keep it on the ‘down low’ but on the other, they want everyone to know that they are doing one another.  Besides, two judges sleeping together and everyone deems this to be ‘okay?’
Nevertheless, I am at the age in life where I could give a hoot who is doing what with one another just as I am over gay marriage and men seeking to dress up like women and women like men.  As a liberal, I am supposed to accept that lunacy as though it is as normal as the Sun rising over the Big Island.
One of the things that is overwhelming is that when a network has a popular show, they want to overdo it and go from airing it once a year to making it a twice-a-year show, which like trying to find great Major League pitchers or NFL star quarterbacks across the United States alone tends to dilute the talent pool.
This is precisely what has happened to the show.  I think the current season has the weakest talent pool of any of the previous seasons and if it continues in the manner in which, it now is, the ‘voices’ are only going to continue declining. 
Currently, there is only one voice on the show whom I believe has a shot at winning the thing and that is Vanessa Ferguson of Team Alicia followed by Lauren Duski of Team Blake.  These two have talent and if given the correct songs they will be the final duo battling it out for the crown.
I would predict here and now that due to Blake being a man with a plan and who seems to know what he is doing will win yet another crown.  This is not to say that Ferguson should not be the winner but given the previous song choices the female coaches give their young talents, I suspect that Alicia is going to cause her contestant to lose.
There is a reason as to why Adam and Blake always seem to be the wearers of the most crowns and that is there is something from the masculine mind that seems to be more adept at picking the right tunes and pushing their contestants in the right directions than we women. 
The sad thing is that we women are about feelings, emotions, and most likely would don pink pussy hats than do our utmost best for the charges we have in the embrace of our loving arms.  We have to face the facts that four men have won the show— Blake x 5, Adam x 3, Usher x 1, and Pharrell x 1,—and only one woman. 
Christina Aguilera won the show in February 2016 and had been there four times while the other women who have participated such as Miley Cyrus, Shakira, Alicia, and Gwen have yet to win.
Now, I know some of my liberal female friends will say, ‘what the f**k, girl,’ but hey, I am telling them as I see them, I can read the stitches on a fastball as well as any other chick but the female judges are not that good.  Call me a ‘bitch,’ I do not care!
When I hear Alicia go into one of her famous ‘raps,’ she sounds like some sort of 1970s soul mama laying goo all over some unsuspecting bonehead—can we never tell the honest-to-God truth for once?
As for Gwen, if I have to hear the ‘hey-I-have-been-in-a-band-with-boys-since-I-was-16,’ I am going to reach for the wastebasket and puke out the pupus, salt seeds, and beer I just downed. 
Gwen, enough, we know you were in a band with the boys since you were a kid but I hate to say this, not a single one of you would measure up to any of the female vocalists from the 1960s-1970s!
In the end, I see the Voice going the way of other talent shows such as the X-Factor, people grow tired of the same old, same old. 
What’s more, until they get rid of Adam Levine and replace him with someone who has as much free time as he and Blake—but who actually has talent—I am going to begin tuning out.
My advice is that if you want the show to continue being successful, stop with changing the way it operates in your attempt to throw in something new and unique.  Operate it in the way in which, the producers started it, the way longtime fans recall.
In addition to that, tell the band to stop drowning out the vocalists, dispense with the backup singers so we can actually hear the voices of the contestants, and quit telling associate producers to hold up signs behind the cameras instructing the audience when to do the ‘wave,’ and all the other dreck you all do.   
Finally, dump Adam, actually pour booze into Blake’s cup to make it more interesting, and dump the current skanks—especially Gwen Stefani.  Having her in the chair is akin to bringing in former child star and current Vegas ho, Britney Spears or the decrepit Madonna. 
Why not bring in someone such as Deborah Harry and give her a seat?  That girl has a mean set of pipes and can do the job and oh, pick better songs.
Sorry if I have upset anyone but I am sick and tired of this crappy show, as I feel with Donald Trump, so I feel with the show.  Enough is enough, there is not enough Mylanta in the world to quell my stomachaches!  Wretch, gag, barf, and puke.
Sorry for the honesty, see you all next time.
A hui hou kakou—aloha Au la ‘Oe!
