So I wanted to start this, and I am oddly hooked on this show but I would be remiss if I didn't start with the worst worst thing in the world that this show has brought us this year

It's amazing

is she actually deaf, or is her first language something like Klingon

The UK version of this show is starting tomorrow - is the US pretty much tuneless dictionless singers?

OH SHIT I WAS JUST LOOKING AT WIKIPEDIA, JORDIS IS ON THIS YEAR??????????????

xp: The US version is usually fantastic singers with powerful voices or engaging singers with quirky voices; the above performance is the absolute worst thing to ever be on the show

THIS TRADE SERVES ZERO FOOTBALL PURPOSE (DJP), Friday, 23 March 2012 17:48 (six years ago) Permalink

That was the worst performance? Viewed in that light it wasn't too bad. Some of you are no doubt familiar with UK X Factor and maybe Britain's (Not) Got Talent, so I'm guessing that our version will be considerably worse.

Unless of course there is some major major screening of potential contestants before they are let anywhere near the coaches.

that's the idea of the show; the "bad" auditionees are screened out before they get to TV

getting pretty obvious that for the america votes portion they are going to frontload and backload the decent singers and then fill the middle portion with the hopeless dreck. tiny country lady in black and pink singing the maroon 5 song approached the horror of that first youtube in this thread!

also it would be nice if christina didnt keep giving the best singer on the show (last dude - jesse? iirc) the most lolworthy standards to work with. somewhere over the rainbow, srsly, are you saving america the beautiful for the final competition rounds jesus what a dolt

Reading this thread has, oddly, caused me to want to watch this program for the first time ever and for that I can only blame John.

I haven't dared to check out any of the video links, tho

Oh you MUST watch the first video

How is it my life is so out of control busy lately that I haven't had time to watch even the first video?

I did see a patient watching the show in their room tonight, though. SIGH

the joy was all mine, obv

Catching up, Adams team kinda sucks, ceelo has 2 of my favorite singers - dude who did Lenny kravitz and lady who did Roxanne. About to watch the replay of the tues night thing and get mad at America all over.

I haven't caught all of the performances but I really have the impression that Christina is mentally ill

at this point I'm backing opera dude because of personal bias but I think HIV dude should probably win

an independent online phenomenon (DJP), Thursday, 19 April 2012 15:05 (six years ago) Permalink

alicia keys backup singer dude was pretty O_Omazing on the monday show actually, first time i got something beyond robotically trained performer out of him and tbh i was pretty shocked.

totally agree about the HIV/recovery dude, he's pretty mindblowingly good. opera dude is great as well but needs to have someone not insane pick songs for him.

Badu and a sax run hand-in-hand (jjjusten), Thursday, 19 April 2012 15:26 (six years ago) Permalink

opera dude was the only performance I caught this week and I was basically sitting there going "wtf why am I enjoying a rendition of 'Vida La Vida'" mixed in with "I bet this is what Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow thinks he sounds like"

hahaha

you didnt miss that much really (other than alicia keys dude), basically mostly adequate stuff, that lindsey lady with the fancy haircut keeps getting more awful each week and stompy country pillowhead was better than she has been before but was still almost indescribably terrible. oh yeah and i guess despite all logic on tues cristina saved lindsey and dumped the 17 yr old girl that kept getting miles better every week.

yo jjj are you watching this this season? we caught most of a battle round ep this week and everyone on stage deserved to be there, it was shocking and awesome

i will watch those later today when it wont scare some hardcore kid to death with actual singing.

how annoying are usher and shakira?

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 April 2013 16:15 (five years ago) Permalink

way less annoying than Cee-Lo and Xtina! the other night, Shakira called Blake "Shrek" which basically makes her my favorite person in the world for at least a year

ceelo mainly irritated me because he would end up with some of the singers i liked most and then fuck it up completely

christina more so + a terrible person

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 April 2013 16:29 (five years ago) Permalink

the full exchange was something like:

ADAM: You passed me over for that ogre sitting over there *points at Blake* and-
SHAKIRA: What's an ogre?
USHER: It's like a troll.
SHAKIRA: Oh, like Shrek! He's Shrek, yeah.
BLAKE: *rueful shrug, eats a goat*

this is unreal. that venue is a favorite of mine - it is in such a chill part of town and never had any known incidents. Security is pretty good too.

I will admit to not being familiar with Christina before tonight but all of the pictures of her looking vibrant and full of life, a driven musician, are just too much right now. this is so fucked up. and it happened while she was signing autographs for fans.

gutted for her family, but also gutted for the people who were likely traumatized by the scene. one witness ran out screaming to say a guy had just shot himself next to her, and his disfigured body laid on the concrete.

fucked up shit happens in Orlando, yea, but this is beyond the pale.

yea there were conflicting reports for a while, but sadly it's official. just so fucked.
