Hi everybody! I hope your Monday was good! Mine was whatever…in between good and bad. The good thing about Monday here is that I get to leave work early. I leave at 3 because I have to wait for my son to get home from school. I don’t have anyone to take care of him on Mondays. Mondays are also for grocery shopping and just recently my new favorite show, The Voice. The show now consumes my Monday and Tuesday evenings. I never watched the show until I saw the commercials within the past few weeks. I also read about it here some months back on T. Wayne’s blog. Check out his blog here if you haven’t already. He usually writes about music and sports. I always enjoy reading his posts. Sorry guys, he isn’t a Dallas Cowboys fan like myself. He’s a Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan. T. Wayne also has some excellent music choices.
I love to hear and watch the singers battle for an advanced spot in the competition. A lot of the singers are teenagers but look and sound much older. The contestants sing new and old songs. One of the contestants, Victor sang Alicia Keys’ “If I ain’t got you” tonight. I think he did an excellent job! He hit the high notes very well throughout the song. I’m beginning to get the hang of the show a little bit more every week. I also like that the singing coaches aren’t as mean as other reality competition shows. They respect the contestants and each other. Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and country superstar Blake Shelton have a little bit of rivalry going on. However, it’s nothing too extreme. Their jokes towards each another are pretty funny. Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams are pretty nice too. The show also features guest music stars like Missy Elliot, Rihanna and others. The guest musicians offer coaching to the contestants. If you don’t have a favorite program on Monday or Tuesday evenings, I highly recommend The Voice. Warning: The show can become an addiction in only a short period of time! Have a goodnight everyone! Until next time!
