The Voice Super Battles.

Another Desperate Format Change on The Voice.



The Voice surprised its regular viewers with another desperate format change this week. These changes do nothing to refresh the format. I am sure that, all but the most gullible, viewers can see that they are just ploys to court more controversy, create headlines and hopefully increase viewers.

The truth is, unless you have some quality entertainment on the show, anyone that tunes in because of the controversy, will soon tune out again and not come back.

Jake Peta Nina The Voice Super Battles

The new round has been labelled Super Battles. Two contestants from each team were given a free pass, or a bye, for this round, by their coaches. The logic and reasons behind the passes was either nonsensical or astounding in most cases.

The battle format involved three contestants from each team pitching against one another, by performing very short snippets of songs; I believe they only had a minute each. Then that song would segue into the next contestant’s.

Team Madden

The Maddens were first up and gave their free passes to Tameaka Powell and Nathan Hawes, which totally belied Joel’s comment that neither Tameaka nor Mikhail Laxton deserved to go further, after their battle round.

So Peta Evans-Taylor, Nina Baumer and Jake Howden were matched in the first battle. Rehearsal footage showed a lot of Joel Madden talking, but no singing.

Nina Baumer sang She Wolf. This 17 year old looked even older and more mature than she had in previous rounds. The song was very low in her range, but she executed good control. This morphed into Take Me Home from Peta Evans-Taylor. It was hard to tell that the song had changed, but Peta did demonstrate more range than Nina.

Jake Howden sang Home. It had feeling, but nothing dynamic vocally.

I felt that all of the performances were really too short for anyone to judge. Jessie J said that they all had rough moments, but I never saw them. Jake was offered a consolation recording opportunity with the Maddens, so he was out. Joel told Nina that Benji had said she hadn’t nailed a performance yet. That simply wasn’t true. She did very well in her last two, despite some very ordinary songs.

The Maddens chose Peta to go through and I guess on those brief performances you would have had to. But I was astounded that they let a girl with Nina’s stage presence go so early. I really thought that Nina was a favourite to win this year.

Team Jessie

Chris Hoskin Cath Adams Jason Howell The Voice Super Battles

Jessie J gave her free passes to Simi Vuata and Ellie Drennan. So Cath Adams, Jason Howell and Chris Hoskin, who had copped a lot of criticism in the regular battle round, lined up for Jessie’s first super battle.

Jason Howell sang Bitter Sweet Symphony. He started singing backstage, very well, but as he moved towards and onto the stage, I felt he lost it and it was quite shaky. I don’t think that this was a good song choice for him.

Across the Universe is a great song, but I was not mad on Chris Hoskin‘s version. It seemed kind of rushed, but then I guess it would be, if you only have a minute to sing it in.

Cath Adams closed out this battle with a horrible song, but undoubtedly the best performance.

The coaches all had a say in who they thought should go through. Delta Goodrem and the Maddens picked Jason. Ricky Martin picked Cath. Jessie J’s comments were pretty much the opposite of what I thought. She said it wasn’t Cath‘s best performance, but picked her anyway.



Team Delta

Stephen McCulloch Caleb Jago-Ward Fem Belling The Voice Super Battle

Delta Goodrem handed free passes to Lyndall Wennekes and Nicholas Duquemin, because they are the youngest. So that’s how it works, is it?

Incidentally, if these two are going to go anywhere in the business, I can see a surname change for both of them.

The first battle line up for Delta was Fem Belling, Stephen McCulloch and Caleb Jago-Ward.

Fem sang a very lively version of the jazz standard Stormy Monday, while playing a violin. Her outfit was far more glamorous than anything we had seen her in before and I liked everything about what she did. It was jazzy, gospelly (I think I just invented that word) and ballsy. This was head and shoulders above anything we had heard so far.

I also really liked Stephen McCulloch‘s version of Fire and Rain. He really connected with it.

Caleb sang We Are Young, with great enthusiasm. He’s very good at what he does, but it’s just not my thing.

None of them deserved to go home after those performances! They all made the most of their minute in the spotlight. Delta chose Caleb to go through and I was very disappointed to see the others go.

In the lead up to the ad break, we got a promotion for The Voice online video clips, including ‘The argument that stopped the nation’. This was the minor spat when Delta had a hissy fit and walked off the set and we had seen all of it in that promotion

Team Ricky

Aviida Scott Newnham Stewart Winchester The Voice Super Battles

Ricky Martin saved Liam Maihi and Gail Page from taking part in the Super Battles.

His first grouping was Aviida, Scott Newnham and Stewart Winchester. Apparently the battles had a theme, this one was jealousy.

Aviida definitely sounded best in the rehearsal footage that we saw. For Ricky, we found out, it is all about the goose bumps.

Paula Parore had her hair down and like Fem Belling before her, looked more glamorous than we had seen her before. Aviida sang Jealous Guy and I liked their version. Once again the harmonies were great. I would really like to see a whole set of these guys.

Scott sang Jealous. He had a much more modern look and musical style. It was pretty good, but not really polished.

Stewart Winchester
sang a different song, but also called Jealous. He was a bit trembly and his performance was interrupted by the sound of the judges commenting. Although there were parts I liked, it was my least favourite of the three performances.

Ricky said Aviida were holding back and the same for Scott. So jealousy was not the only theme of this battle. Ricky picked Scott to go through and once again I was very disappointed to see Aviida go.

Team Madden

Sarah Valentine Joe Moore Renee Pounsett The Voice Super Battles

The Maddens second battle was Joe Moore, Renee Pounsett and Sarah Valentine

Joel sorted Joe out in rehearsals for closing his eyes while singing. Joel seems to regularly get on a theme and stick with it, despite little evidence to back it up.

Sarah Valentine looked good and had a lot of confidence. But the song and performance, to quote the cooking show that Channel Nine incessantly promotes during The Voice, were not to my palate

I am a big fan of Joe Moore. I like his tone. Once again he gave it everything in this performance.

I wasn’t keen on the start of Renee’s song, but the high parts and country feel were nice.

For me it was Joe and then daylight. Ricky and Jessie also opted for Joe, but Delta picked Sarah. Thankfully the Maddens had the important decision and also picked Joe.

Team Jessie

Mahalate Teshome Amber Nichols Ethan Conway The Voice Super Battles

Jessie J’s second run out featured Mahalate Teshome, Ethan Conway and Amber Nichols.

Mahalate is so good for someone with so little experience. Her performance started off very good, but I felt she lost it on many levels.

Ethan was given another so, so song and I wasn’t impressed with the performance, until the high parts. But it did not end well either.

Amber is another favourite of mine, but this was not her best performance in the show. However it would be a crime if she wasn’t the one Jessie picked. Joel agreed, saying she was the most ready and that the other two were flat, which they were. Jessie got on stage and got right in their faces to deliver her verdicts and decision, which was the right one.

Team Delta

Grace Pitts Rik-E Ragga Mikhail Laxton The Voice Super Battle

Delta 2 battle was Grace Pitts, Mikhail Laxton and Rik-E Ragga. This one had a theme about love. Where do they come up with them?

Rik-E Ragga gave us Could You be Loved. It was a long way short of Bob Marley. He was much better on the rapping than the singing parts.

Grace Pitts looked great again, but I was not impressed with the song, or the audience clap along, which was just irritating. I warmed to it a little as it went on, but it was not her best performance.

Mikhail also seemed a bit flat and lacking connection and highlights. None of them really did anything for me, but I would pick Grace, as I think she has the potential to do much better. Unfortunately, for me, Delta picked Rick-E Ragga to progress.

Team Ricky

Or should we say Team Opera?

Tim McCallum Naomi Price Dione Baker The Voice Super Battle

The last battle was the most hyped and it pitted two opera singers against a musical theatre wallah. Tim Mccallum, Dione Baker and Naomi Price.

Tim sang You Raise Me Up. It is amazing how he manages to sing so much better than so many of the others, despite the restrictions.

Dione sang Climb Every Mountain. This was not Dione‘s best performance. I didn’t like the song sung so high and she missed the timing on a line.

Naomi‘s performance was faultless, but I didn’t like the song. So the winner was undoubtedly Tim for me. But Ricky chose Naomi. She looked genuinely shocked and burst into tears. So the opera team coach has now rejected all of his opera singers

Tim spoke very well about his experience on the show. Despite what we read about dubious contracts for the competitors and the undoubted manipulation of the show, all of the participants seem to really enjoy their experience.

So there is no more Voice this week and it goes live next Sunday. So far there has been no announcement about Jessie J, so hopefully that means she is fit to come back for the live rounds. Tune in next Sunday and you may even get a chance to vote, if you believe that influences the outcome.

As John Lennon featured heavily tonight, we have listed links below to both of his included songs, just click on them for more details.

The Voice Battle Rounds Round 3

Song Quality Soars in Final Voice Battle Rounds



Round three of The Voice Battle Rounds began with probably the best opening battle of the week. Nina Baumer and Nicholas Duquemin sang Empire. Nicholas has a rare and distinctive voice. The term unique was bandied about a great deal, but it is not unique. Guys with similar voices, it’s called contralto or countertenor, were very popular in the late 50′s and early 60′s. Check out Jimmy Smith(aka Little Jimmy Smith) and a Welshman, called Greg Pritchard, stunned the judges on Britain’s Got Talent a few years ago, with an even higher voice than Nicholas‘.

The Voice 2015 I Think We Have a Winner

But Nina Baumer has looks, presentation and confidence well beyond her years. She sang so much better than her blind audition too. I think she could be a big chance to win the competition this year. Delta Goodrem picked Nicholas to stay on her team, but I was sure that this meant there was a steal coming… and there was, Joel Madden gave us the last minute steal.

Jessie J asked Laz Chester and Ethan Conway to sing Bloodstream and told them that Ed Sheeran was an old friend of hers. Lo and behold Ed turned up, to give them some tips and tell them that he had a major crush on Delta Goodrem when he was 13.

Both boys did well.The opening songs tonight were better than almost everything last night. I felt that Ethan‘s high end stuff stole it. Jessie struggled with a decision, but eventually picked Ethan.

Naomi Price and Lize Heerman

Naomi Price and Lize Heerman

Naomi Price and Lize Heerman are two very accomplished singers with huge stage presence, who gave us a very professional presentation of Break Free. There was not much between them, but I would have picked Naomi and so did Ricky Martin.

Tough Love

In the rehearsal footage for Mikhail Laxton and Tameaka Powell, we saw Joel Madden doing the tough love thing, that Jessie J has made herself famous for in this series. He came down a little hard on Tameaka when she said that she couldn’t do a harmony. They sang Hold Back the River. I thought it would be hard to find a song that suited both of these two, but they seemed to manage it.

There were some iffy patches, but mostly it was pretty good. I favoured Mikhail, his voice reminds me a little of Amos Leeand that’s a good thing. Tameaka is very similar to Stevie Nicks, but falls just short of her. Joel maintained his tough love stance, saying the performance didn’t warrant taking either of them through, which was not really justified and looked to me to be part of a theme for this segment. But he took Tameaka, as he wanted a country singer. Fortunately Delta stepped in and took Mikhail.



Song Dip

The Voice producers made the Chris Hoskin and Ollie Kirk preamble all about their dead friends and relatives. As I’ve said before, I don’t want to belittle anyone’s loss, but I hate it when these shows use that loss to define the artists. It is blatant emotional manipualtion of the audience.

They sang A Sky Full of Stars. It was kind of melancholy, but both boys sang well and it would be hard to pick between them. Delta, Ricky and Joel said that they believed Chris begrudged singing it. I did not see that in his performance. Then Jessie J apologised for giving them that song, which was justified, I wouldn’t give my worst enemy a Coldplay song.

There was a lot of discussion, with both singers chiming in that it was not a song or style that suited them. Jessie said that Ollie won the battle, but she decided to take Chris through, which wasn’t exactly what we were led to believe in all the promos. There were no Steals left, otherwise I am sure someone would have picked up Ollie.

Chantelle Morell

Chantelle Morell, gave it the kitchen sink

Chantelle Morell and Renee Pounsett, took us further into mediocre song territory, Waiting All Night by Rudimentary, apparently. This battle was very busy and there was far too much going on. Both Ricky and the Maddens commented on this. They chose to take Renee through.

And We’re Back

James Sieff got to sing another Randy Newman song, as he had done in his blind audition, in his battle with Stephen McCulloch. Feels Like Home was very nice and I thought both did well. I much preferred Stephen‘s performance though, but I suspected James would get the nod on the age bias, he’s 18 years younger than Stephen. But Delta surprised me and picked the old guy, well he hasn’t hit the big four oh yet.

The final battle, between wheelchair bound Tim McCallum and comeback kid Mark Steffanof, who actually came back from Broadway, had been plugged incessantly, with lots of previews. Ricky gave them The Impossible Dream, from the 1965 Broadway musical Man of La Mancha. It is an epic song, that has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra, through Elvis, to Luther Vandross. It was an excellent duet really. Tim is inspiring, what he achieves, despite his setbacks, is amazing, but on this performance I believe that Mark won. Ricky picked Tim to go through and I understand why and no one could blame him.

At the end of the show another change in format was announced for next week. We now have three cornered super battles. These battles have already been pre-recorded, so I guess we are going to have to wait, at least another week, before the public gets to have their say in things.

To celebrate the improvement in song quality in this battle round, we have links below to some of the best we heard. Just click on them for more info.

The Voice Battle Rounds Round 2

Song Quality Becomes an Issue

in The Voice Battle Rounds



Jessie J’s team kicked off round two of The Voice Battle Rounds with a slightly sensational decision on the coach’s behalf, to have the contestants sing one of her own songs. Maybe she needs the royalties. Jazz singer Fem Belling and country school teacher Cath Adams gave us Mamma Knows Best. Both of these girls can sing, but this seemed like a lot of shouting to me. Cath was also very sharp. I didn’t particularly enjoy any of it; it was way too over the top. But I would have picked Fem, both for a slightly better performance and to keep someone different to the rest in the competition. Jessie picked Cath, I really do not understand why. The steal was well milked, with Delta Goodrem hitting the button only when Fem was almost all of the way off of the set.

The Voice Battle of the Blonde Beauties

Our fishing town girl, Keely Brittain and singing gymnast Lyndall Wennekes sang Pray to God. Initially I wasn’t impressed with either of them, but I liked the parts where they sang together. Eventually Keely distinguished herself. Once again there was way too much going on to make the performance an entirely pleasurable experience. Astonishingly, Delta Goodrem chose Lyndall and I didn’t see a save coming for Keely and I was right. This was probably the worst decision of these battle rounds so far.

Keely cops a poor decision

Is this the last we’ll see of Keely Brittain, or will she be back for 3rd time lucky next year?

Next up the battle of the mums. Liam Maihi was singing for his sick mum and Rene MGovern is the mother of Isaac, who competed last year. At this stage I was crying out for a good song. They sang Crazy in Love, slowly, which was a relief. They both started singing way off of the main stage and walked up. It went quite well. Rene is a capable singer, but would not sell lots of records. I think Liam did just enough to take it. Ricky Martin picked him, as he was always going to.

Peta Evans Taylor is fit and Claudia Migliaccio did well with a very difficult song in her blind audition. They sang Love Me Harder for their Battle Round. From the off, Claudia was soulful and Peta was sexy. They were both very good. I had the feeling that Peta would take it, with her high notes and sexy stage presence, but a steal looked on the cards. The Maddens picked Peta, but no one saved Claudia. Did I say sexy?

Paris Cassar and Mahalate Teshome are two very young girls with a lot of potential. They sung Style. Both of them started out a bit weak, maybe just compared to what we had heard earlier. It was quite pleasant, but a bit too pop princess for my taste and lacked substance. Jessie J was pretty inarticulate in her criticism, for a change. She picked Mahalate to go through and she had shaded it.

Claudia Migliaccio and Peta Evans Taylor The Voice Battle

Claudia Migliaccio and Peta Evans Taylor

Jo De Goldi and Caleb Jago-Ward were an obvious pairing, as they are both very theatrical. They harmonised well together in rehearsals. But Delta decided to change their song, part way through rehearsal. Now we may have Built This City on Rock and Roll, but it was very much occupied by musical theatre. It was not really my thing, but the punters liked it. I thought Jo sang flat for a lot of it, so I would have to go with Caleb. Jessie said it was the first battle to get them out of their chairs. Maybe they should choose some better songs then. As expected, Delta chose Caleb and Jo went home.

The next performance started out flat in a different way, just kind of lifeless. Jason Howell and Nathan Hawes sang Stolen Dance, which gradually progressed to off key flat, especially Jason. Nathan was marginally better, but not a patch on his blind audition. Jessie criticised the song choice, as it was very staccato. But it was kind of late in the day, as there had only been one good song choice all night and it took Delta Goodrem two stabs to get that. Jessie J did what Ricky Martin had done the previous night and stole before the Maddens had made their decision. They kept Nathan and Jason goes with Team Jessie.

Save or Steal

Now as far as I can see there is no discernable difference between the Steal and the Save that we had in previous years. However the Steal does for fall into three categories.

The Last Minute Steal is the most often used. It is always applied when the losing contestant is almost all the way off of the set.

The Hug and Steal was introduced by The Madden Brothers, when Benji gave a consoling hug to a departing contestant, while Joel hit the steal button behind him. But Jessie J streamlined this one, by managing the hug and steal single handedly.

The Pre-emptive Steal was given to us by Ricky Martin. This involves claiming the losing contestant before the coach knows which one it is going to be. Jessie J replicated this tactic in last nights round, but I would have to give Mr Martin points for style on this one.

With the last of the Battle Rounds coming up, will we see a new kind of steal introduced? I’m rooting for the arse steal. It’s very similar to the hug and steal, but the coach presses the button by sitting on it.



Somewhere

For the final battle Sonia Kruger introduced Dione Baker, who sang opera in her blind audition, as a musical theatre singer. Dione was paired with super dad, Jeremy Ryan. They sang Somewhere from the musical West Side Story. This was so far out of my wheelhouse it wasn’t funny. The diction and enunciation alone killed me. They both sang it very well, if you like that sort of thing. But I would have given it to Dione. Ricky agreed and Jeremy returns home to his seven dwarves.

The forthcoming highlights promised us wheelchair bound opera singer Tim McCallum and a battle winner who goes home anyway, but never mentioned that Ed Sheeran will be making an appearance, which is advertised on The Voice website. This will make a pleasant change, to actually hear Ed Sheeran sing an Ed Sheeran song on the show.

Jessie J to Leave The Voice Australia

Breaking News:- There have been murmurs around that Jessie J will not return for the live, knock out sections of The Voice. She did have an operation recently and released a photo of herself looking very ill in her hospital bed. A quick search has revealed no confirmation of those rumours. But stay tuned, as I am guessing that this is the sort of thing that Channel 9 will keep under wraps and save for a big announcement of her replacement.

We hope that this is not true and that Jessie has made a full recovery from her procedure.

In case Jessie J does need the royalties, we have included links to her music below. Click on them and help a poor girl out.

What IS Happening Under The Dome?

Chesters Mill Has Gone From Being Trapped

to Being Directionless.



Series three of Under the Dome seems to have really lost it’s way, very much reminding us of a similar series. But at least that one had the good grace to call itself Lost, so we always knew where we were.

Under The Dome

Series one and two of Under the Dome had the makings of a good sci-fi mystery. Why and how did this town become trapped under a clear dome and how was it related to a glowing egg that some of the residents found? Why did some of younger people of the town have such a connection with the egg and the dome itself?

It was a little frustrating a times, that very few answers were forthcoming in each episode and when they killed off lead characters and introduced new ones in ever more outrageous circumstances.

But series three really seems to have jumped the shark. Everyone who apparently escaped the dome at the end of series two, actually imagined or dreamed a whole year of their lives, some of them well outside of the dome. Some who died at the end of series two were not in fact dead, but others were.

Big Jim, the towns mayor, is one of TV’s most evil bad guys, but everyone passes up every opportunity that they have to get rid of him. His brother in law went to jail for a murder he committed under the dome, but Jim saw no such justice, despite committing many more.

Julia Shumway Under the Dome

Julia Shumway, played by Rachelle Lefevre, is at least the third character to be resurrected in Under the Dome

He tried to kill the heroine Julia at the end of series two, but now she is working with him against a new adversary.

Marg Helgenberger has been brought in from CSI as a kind of alien witch queen, with cocoons in a cave and a purple light show reminiscent of a 70′s discotheque from Saturday Night Fever.

The evil guys from outside the dome, who wanted control of its powers, are now inside the dome, but I am not really clear on how they got there. Frank Whaley is the evil doctor or scientist heading up the henchmen. As Barbie‘s father, their previous dark leader, was killed off by the reincarnated Melanie, his daughter, who was then in turn killed by Christine, Marg Helgenberger‘s character.

It has really gone way, way beyond the realms of credibility and a clever, smart resolution looks like a very remote possibility now. More likely they will drag on the ever more improbable story lines until most of the audience has disappeared and then, whoever is left watching, will find out everyone is dead, like we did in Lost.

It is sad that it has come to this, but now I much prefer Homer Simpson‘s dome, that one had some intentional laughs.

The Voice Battles Round One

Luke Warm Start to The Battle Rounds



After an uninspired and over dramatic performance of We Will Rock You from the coaches, Ellie Drennan and Shyjana Terzioska kicked off The Voice Battle Rounds. We saw Jessie J shoving them in rehearsals, to remind them of their bullying at school and put that emotion into their song, Elastic Heart. I didn’t like the song. Both girls sang with strangled vocals and the crowd clap along was annoying. I think they could have done so much more, with a better tune. I would have picked Ellie, based on that performance. All of the judges over praised them. Jessie agreed with my instinct and picked Ellie to go through.

Love is in the air on The Voice

We saw no rehearsal footage from Monty Cotton and Joe Moore. Monty has been billed as the Johnny Cash impersonator and was still dressed as the man in black for this battle. It astounds me that no one has commented how much he actually looks like Chris Isaak. Superheroes was another very ordinary song, that did nothing for me. There was not much between Joe and Monty, but Joe had slightly more range, so I picked him. This was a very cut down battle. Benji Madden did the talking and picked Joe, without a lot of preamble.

Aviida sounded good in rehearsals and Delta Goodrem talked down Rick-E-Ragga, saying he was genre specific. They sang Beggin. Aviida‘s harmonies were really good, Rick-E rapped in between. They all worked really well together, this was definitely the best battle so far. Based on that, I would have saved one of them. In the post match analysis, Ricky Martin and The Maddens both picked Rick-E-Ragga. Jessie J never got a say. Delta picked Rick-E and Ricky Martin gave it a big dramatic pause before stealing Aviida, as they were walking off the set.

Gail Page and Deanna Rose sang Take Me to Church. The song seemed much more suited to Deanna. Both women were good on their verses, but Deanna‘s higher sections were more appealing. Only Jessie J and Ricky Martin got to speak on air. Surprisingly, for a number of reasons, Ricky picked Gail. I have mixed feelings about this, because I would really like to see a lot more of Gail, hopefully singing songs more suited to her. But I think Deanna was better in that audition and is also worth seeing again. Unfortunately no one saved, or stole, Deanna.



Once again there was no rehearsal footage or preamble for Stewart Winchester and Simi Vuata. Stewart started better, but Simi got into his stride and lived up to his blind audition. Once again both were very good and I would like to see both of them stay, Ricky played his steal before Jessie J made her choice. Jessie chose to stick with Simi Vuata, as I would have, but thankfully both will be seen again.

Grace Pitts and Jake Howden gave us Blank Space, not literally, that was the name of the song. This was a very nice performance from both and there was nothing to pick between them. There was a lot of talk of romance between Grace and Jake, from the coaches, but the best Jake could come up with, outside of the song, was “She’s alright”. Such a silver tongued charmer. Jessie and Delta disagreed again, Jessie picking Jake and Grace going through on Team Delta. The steal was milked for all it was worth. While Benji hugged Jake, Joel hit the button. So Jake stays, on Team Madden.

Adam Spain-Mostina and Scott Newnham

Adam Spain-Mostina and Scott Newnham, the pretty boys with Sonia Kruger

Adam Spain-Mostina and Scott Newnham were both lauded for their looks and that is pretty much all that will be remembered from this battle. They sang Love Runs Out. It was a very pedestrian start, with not much range or diversity. It improved a bit as it went on… but not much. Based on this I wouldn’t have picked either of them. Joel Madden and Ricky Martin said much of what I was thinking. Ricky chose Scott to progress.

Interestingly, at the end of the performance, we saw a graphic that said 77% of Australia picked Scott. My question is when? The Battle was recorded months ago and the recording goes out on delay to at least two states. So who calculates these figures and how? They do say that 79% of statistics are made up on the spot, just like that one.

Amber Nichols and Sarah Valentine were set to sing Shake it Down. All indications in rehearsals were that the song was more suited to Sarah, but as we expected, Amber‘s more subtle delivery was more appealing in the actual battle. Joel picked Sarah, but this seemed like an obvious set up for a steal. Jessie J did the hug and simultaneous button press, without the benefit of a twin, or stunt double. So both girls live to fight another day.

Tonight we saw Sonia Kruger sharing the presenting duties with original ringmaster Darren McMullen and I don’t think that this spruiking style really suited her, but I wonder how many believe that her presence is a big indicator that we will not see a comeback for Big Brother this year.

Round two of the battles is on Monday at 7:30 on Nine, when I guess we will see a sprinkling of Ricky‘s opera contingent.

If you really want to see how We Will Rock You Should be sung, check out the links below.

The Voice Final Blind Auditions

The Voice Saves the Best for Last



The Voice final Blind Auditions kicked off on Tuesday with Simi Vuata, an indigenous young man with a very sharp haircut. He sang Clown an Emeli Sandé song. This was by far the best voice and audition in this series. Simi has a soul quality that you rarely come across in shows like this. Three chairs turned and the Maddens would have, if they had more than one place left, or thought that they had any chance of getting him. Ricky Martin, Delta Goodrem and Jessie J all pitched hard. Simi chose Team Jessie and this was undoubtedly the best fit for him.

The Voice Saving The Best Blind Auditions for last

Saving The Best Blind Auditions for last. Shyjana Terzioska, Simi Vuata and Dione Baker

Next up was a very attractive radiographer, who regularly sings at weddings and corporate shows. Chantelle Morrell gave us I Wanna Dance With Somebody. She started out a bit low and missed the high notes, she was a long way short of Whitney. The Maddens turned and I was surprised. So Chantelle became the last member of Team Madden. The review clip of their squad revealed a lot of flat singing. I would be pretty surprised if the winner emerged from this team.

Chantelle was followed by a singing sailor, who actually sings in the Australian Navy Band. Mark Nivet launched into Stevie Wonder‘s Superstition and I was disappointed. With that background, I really expected him to be better. He improved after a shaky start, but never really had the hard funk edge that the song requires. No one turned their chair. When she found out that he was a sailor, Delta asked if he sang Turn Back Time, he did and that sounded better than Superstition.

It Ain’t Over

Dione Baker got a long introductory video clip and a back story about her heart condition. Her dress down look, speaking voice and home video totally contrasted with how she looked and sounded on stage. Dione has the best opera voice of this series and possibly all four series. If an opera singer goes all the way this season, it will be Dione. She signed up for the opera team, Team Ricky. The recap of Mr Martin’s crew revealed a lot more quality singing than the Madden‘s.

Bec Whitehead The Voice Blind Audition

Bec Whitehead she’s got legs

Next we were greeted by the voice and long legs of Bec Whitehead. Bec had good voice, but not a good song choice. A Tisket a Tasket is basically a nursery rhyme and as much as I admire Ella Fitzgerald, I’ve never liked this. Then, to make it worse, Bec threw a rap in the middle of it. I’m all for innovation, but that totally did not work. No one turned, but they may have done, with a better song choice and less outrageous contrast.

Shyjana Terzioska was the second great soulful voice of the night. With only Jessie and Delta needing more team members, Jessie J made her work for it and only turned at the very end. I’m not sure if there was meant to be more, because Shyjana lost it and stopped singing while the music went on. Shyjana is only 16, so could be one of the great early discoveries.

The review of Jessie’s team revealed a lot of good soulful voices and if I was a betting man, then I would put money on the winner coming from this team.

With only space left on Delta‘s team, Esther Hermann sang one of Delta’s own songs, Born to Try. The nerves got the better of her. Esther has talent and will be ready with maybe another years practice and experience.

Last up was another musical theatre performer, who gave us some Freddie Mercury, which is always a big ask. There were some big moments, but for me he never quite cut it, but Caleb Jago-Ward did it for Delta. So he completed her team.

The highlights reel of Delta‘s team also revealed some flat singing and nothing to make me change my mind about where the winner is likely to come from, but there are a few in there that I am looking forward to seeing again.

The Battle Rounds

The promos for the Battle Rounds, that followed, surprised me a little. My memory had failed me and I had forgotten that they were also pre-recorded. So we can probably look forward to more hype in all of the forthcoming attractions we will see in the next week.

The Voice Battle Rounds begin on Sunday at 7:00 on Channel 9.

We have included some links below to music we though that you may enjoy, music from Emeli Sandé, Delta Goodrem‘s original version of Born to Try and O mio babbino caro, the aria that Dione Baker sang in her audition. Just click on them for further information.

The Voice Blind Auditions Monday

The End of Blind Auditions is in Sight



Monday night’s Blind Auditions on The Voice began with an interesting looking young man, called James Sieff. He sang You Got a Friend in Me, originally by Randy Newman and made famous in the movie Toy Story. James had a pleasant sounding voice, but a bit limited. It was interesting enough to want to hear more though and we will, as Delta Goodrem claimed him for her team.

Renee Pounsett was next up. She sang low and sounded strained and pitchy to me, when she went for anything higher. I was surprised that two chairs turned for her. In the ensuing pitching battle, the Maddens jumped in on the Jessie J bashing, with Joel saying he knew what she was going to say and mimicking her. Renee chose to join the Maddens.

Paul Crowder from Lithgow, was obviously not an accomplished public performer. He kind of struggled. There were some nice qualities in his voice, but he was not really in control or polished. No one turned their chair.

A montage of acts who did not turn chairs was then run and this convinced me that they had not saved the best for second last. The quality of auditions was definitely getting worse. Are we nearing the bottom of the barrel? Is the well running dry? This and other water related analogies are the questions we ask ourselves.

To spice things up, we got another chance for our own blind audition. The voice we heard, while watching only the coaches reactions, started very weak, but built and sounded pretty good, although still lacked power and volume. Did they mix it differently? He sounded louder when he was talking than singing.

Adam Spain Mostina turned out to be a very good looking young fellah. Ricky Martin and Delta Goodrem turned for him.

Ricky‘s pitch seemed a bit low key, while Delta appeared to be in a rush to be the first to fill her team. Adam picked Ricky and it will be good to hear him in a straight performance, without the sound modifications.

A Comeback of a Different Kind

We’ve had artists return this year who did not go all the way in their first appearance on The Voice. But next we had a twist on that theme.

 Ellie Drennan

Ellie Drennan promoted as Monday night’s big thing

Rene McGovern is the mother of Issac McGovern, who turned four chairs last year. Rene has a wild, way out look, with hair and clothes heavily influenced by Krusty the Clown. She gave us Bette Midler’s The Rose. She sang it well and stayed in key, but it is a big song that needs big moments, there really wasn’t one, but Ricky Martin turned and he was her dream coach.

Eleea Navarro sang an old favourite, Me and Bobby McGee. It wasn’t Janice Joplin and it was kind of patchy, but she has potential and I quite liked it. No one turned, but she was far from the worst audition tonight.

How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore is a great song, but a bit done to death on TV talent shows. Claudia Migliaccio gave us a nice version and The Maddens turned when she hit the high notes. I was surprised that more coaches didn’t.

Monday’s final contestant has Royal connections. Ellie Drennan’s brothers are Harry and William. She was billed in the promos as tonight’s big thing, so she had a lot to live up to. She sang Take it All. She definitely has abilities, but I wasn’t that impressed, until she sang acapella, on Jessie J‘s say so… and I guess that was the plan. The Maddens had turned first and tonight’s script destined them as Jessie‘s main opposition. We didn’t see Jessie pitch hard, but Ellie chose her.

Tonight felt like the lowest quality of auditions on any single night this year. We all know that things can change and performers can be better on another night, in another setting and maybe even with some of the coaching they are offered. But I would be surprised if any of tonight’s qualifiers get past the Battle Rounds, except maybe Ellie Drennan. The term ‘Cannon Fodder’ springs to mind.

When The Voice first appeared on our screens, I was pleased that it took a step away from the other TV talent shows that relied a great deal on ridiculing the contestants and destroying their dreams. The show still does not do that, but I have felt more than a little cheated this season by all the tricks, deception and desperate moves to swell the audience figures. If the show can no longer rely on presenting new talent and a providing an interesting competition, without these measures, then maybe it is time to let it go and move onto the next format.

I’ll be sticking with The Voice for now, but I hope that they can win me back with some real performances and lose all the deception.

Once again we have lnks below to some of the more well known versions of the songs covered on tonight’s show, just click on them for more information.

The very last Blind Auditions air tonight (Tuesday) on Channel 9.

Truce Declared on The Voice

Peace Has Broken Out Between Delta and Jessie J



On Sundays blind auditions of The Voice the female rivalry was billed to resume. The scene for the Delta/Jessie battle field was set from the offset.

A Truce Declared on The VoiceImage created by The Voice Australia Facebook Chat Forum join them at https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheVoiceAustraliaChatForum/

The first contestant up was Tamara O’Callaghan who sang Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend in a basic sort of Marilyn Munroe impersonation. Marilyn traded on her sex appeal and wasn’t really a singer, Tamara did pretty much the same. Her boyfriend really set us up for what to expect, when he said that the only thing close to her looks was her voice, which is not a huge benefit when the judges can’t see you.

Once again Jessie J told it like it is, while Delta Goodrem tried to put a positive spin on a pretty ordinary audition. While Jessie made another valid point Delta took off her mic and walked off the set. This appeared to be a script that Delta was working to, while Jessie was unaware.

A truce was called in the ‘feud’ after some interview segments tried to convince us how real it was. Jessie and Delta were all pally and sweetness and light together for the remainder of the show, and even ended up collaborating on some harmonies.

Next up was Mahalate Teshome, who had only ever sung in front of an audience at two weddings previously. She was nervous and stumbled over some words. But she had some good qualities to her voice. She seemed to be far from ready for prime time, but Jessie J and the Maddens turned for her. She chose Jessie.

Stephen McCulloch sang the Cat Stevens‘ 60′s classic Father and Son. The intro is sung in a lower key and initially I was not very impressed, but he was so much better in the second part. Delta turned and it will be good to see what he does next.

Tameaka Powell The Voice 2015

I liked Hailey Marie McFadden‘s version of Wicked Game. I thought that she had some very interesting components in her voice, but no one turned, so we won’t get to see more of her… this year anyway.

Jeremy Ryan from Perth and his 7 kids had featured in all the promos for the show and his last note was not as big as it had been billed, but he did sing very well. Ricky Martin played to the crowd, surrounding himself with the kids, as a sort hunky Latin Santa Clause. It seemed to have been effective and persuaded Ryan to join Team Ricky.

It’s quite amazing how the show is used as a launching pad for so much self consuming media. Jeremy Ryan‘s audition prompted a plug for a web video and a segment on A Current Affair, where they will in turn plug The Voice, it’s a never ending circle.

I was kind of confused by Jake Howden‘s audition. It was a mixture of interesting and off key. Delta turned after a lot of teasing by her and the Maddens. We may find that more exposure to Jake will reveal his true abilities. At the moment my jury is out.

Country singer Temeaka Powell from central Queensland had some nice qualities to her voice, but lacked any highlights for me and I wouldn’t have picked her based on that audition. The Madden Brothers disagreed and she is through to the Battle rounds.

The final competitor for the evening was Elizabeth Rimbo, who has done all her previous public singing in church. Although not religious myself, I am a huge fan of gospel music, but this really did not deserve a bigger audience. However Jessie J jumped on stage, to show her how it should be done. Not wanting to be left out, Delta and Ricky Martin joined her and the roof was raised, praise the lord and pass the cheese.

In case anyone doubts Jessie‘s authority to tell anyone how to sing gospel music, here she is killing it, as a blonde.

So it looks like the bitch fight promotion is over, for now, and I’d like to think that the show will concentrate on the contestants from here in. But I very much doubt it. They are paying a lot of money to have these international artists on The Voice panel, so I am sure that they will make the most of them.

The blind auditions continue on Monday and Tuesday this week.

The Voice 2015 Week 2 Auditions

Disharmony is The New Voice Theme



The producers of The Voice have obviously decided that the format needs spicing up with some controversy and intense rivalry. That theme became more obvious as the week progressed.

However the discerning eye would have picked that the confrontation between Jessie J and Delta Goodrem was much more evident in the promotional snippets than the actual content of the show.

The Voice 2015 Disharmony

Week 2 of The Voice 2015 Blind Auditions began with Jason Howell giving us a very alternative version of Sexy and I Know It. I liked the arrangement. His voice was good and he could have potential. I look forward to seeing what else he can do.

Jason was followed by the high flying Barbara Streisand, former Circus performer Jo de Goldi and wheelchair bound opera singer Tim McCallum. Both sang really well. I don’t see them as potential winners, but they will definitely enjoy the ride.

Jo De Goldi and Tim McCallum

Tim has an assist dog called Roxy and so is mine. Well mine is not officially an assist dog, but she does what she can to help out, a little bit of washing up, vacuuming and laundry, that sort of thing.

Damielou Shavelle sang Jessie J‘s Do it Like a Dude. No one was ultra impressed, except with her balls to sing it in front of Jessie. The woman herself joined her on stage, to demonstrate how it should be done and the gulf between them was very apparent. Damielou promotes herself on Youtube and has over 70,000 followers, so her marketing abilities are even more impressive than her singing.

However Liam Mahi impressed everyone, with his version of George Ezra’s Budapest, turning all four chairs and initiating a feeding frenzy among the judges. He chose to join Team Ricky.

Mark Stefanoff had a appeared on the show before and turned no chairs, but did get invited to Broadway by Ricky Martin. He sang John Farnham‘s Burn For You this time around and demonstrated my issue with musical theatre. To me it always sounds like they are acting the song. There is no genuine soul or passion that registers with me. But many people like it and Ricky Martin is one of them. He turned his chair and Mark joins the comeback kids from week one.

Laz Chester finished Sunday’s show and impressed the judges more than he did me. He was one of the very few to turn Jessie J‘s chair and he chose her over Ricky and Delta. I will watch him carefully when he is up next, to see what I missed.

Monday’s Blind Auditions



Stewart Winchester opened up Monday’s show with a very interesting voice. It reminded me a little of Aaron Neville. He turned chairs almost immediately and all four eventually. He went with Jessie J who offered him tough love.

Mys T releases her music on Youtube. She was more of a rapper than a singer. Her singing voice was quite flat and no chairs turned for her.

Perth’s Sam Rabbone had a good voice, but was kind of in that musical theatre genus that does not really appeal to me. He was also knocked back by all four judges.

Nathan Hawes and Grace Pitts

Wedding Singer Sarah Valentine has lots of live singing experience, which is always better than singing in your bedroom, even if it is to a camera. Her voice was a bit low and lacked enough highlights to be a big potential winner. Maybe it was significant that the Delta and Jessie, who know so much technically about singing, did not turn. Sarah flirted with the Madden Brothers and chose them over Ricky Martin.

Blake Galera-Hollis is really a rocker and looks like one, with a kind of long haired Jesus image. But he chose to give us a very flat version of Celine Dion‘s My Heart Will Go On, from the movie Titanic. That really divided the judges. I suspect he only appeared to get some exposure for his rock band and it was a less than serious moment.

South Africa born Lizé Heerman sung a great old standard My Baby Just Cares For Me. It was a little up and down for me. It had good moments and some not so good, but sometimes the judges will ignore a less than perfect audition when they see potential. The Madden Brothers and Ricky Martin turned. Lizé chose Ricky.

Last up on Monday’s show were the twins from another mother, Nathan Hawes and Grace Pitts, who appeared separately and both wowed the judges. Nathan turned all four judges. Joel pitched first and pitched hard, Ricky countered the Maddens, the girls not so much. But Jessie J did say that he was her favourite audition so far. Nathan chose the Madden Brothers.

Grace Pitts sang the old Dolly Parton classic Jolene. She turned Delta right away and then the Maddens, who had asked for a female version of Nathan just before. It’s amazing the telepathic powers that these judges so often have. Despite Joel’s psychic abilities, Grace chose team Delta.

Tuesday’s Blind Auditions



Tuesday’s show was highly edited to give it a rivalry theme between Jessie J and Delta Goodrem. It was quite obvious to me that many comments were cut short and manipulated purely for that agenda, which was particularly played up in the promotional sections at the end of each segment.

First up was British busker, Joe Moore, who has a great voice and managed to turn all four judges. Jessie J made the unprecedented step of telling him that he should go with the Maddens. This really upset Delta Goodrem, when he took her advice.

Although the most was made of the rivalry between Delta and Jessie, with tactical editing, Delta did not come out of it looking good in Joe‘s audition. Jessie‘s side comment to Joe, that the Maddens could do the most for him after the show, seemed genuine, while Delta appeared to be sulking about losing a contestant.

Joe Moore and Nina Baumer

Karim and Jasmin sang a duet from the musical Alladin. Jasmin was so much better than Karim. Jessie told it like it is. Delta and Joel tried to play down the negative aspect of the criticism. But no one turned for them.

While I am not a fan of the musical theatre and Popera acts that often feature heavily in these TV talent shows, I am a fan of Jazz and as Ricky Martin said, “Jazz needs representation on The Voice“. But he really annoyed me when he gave up on Emma Pask in the Showdown rounds in 2013.

Jazz singer, Fem Belling, gave a lively performance of Bye Bye Blackbird. Until the last notes, it appeared that no one was going to turn for her. But all four coaches turned at the last minute. She chose Jessie J and I think that she made the best choice for herself.

I would have picked Ethan Conway simply because he sang the great Allen Stone song Unaware. But he did a really good job of it too. Delta made a strong pitch for him, but Jessie‘s tough love
won out again.

The week finished with a very confident 17 year old. Nina Baumer sang Something’s Got a Hold On Me. I don’t think that she had the best voice of the night, but her confidence, stage presence and great looks mean that she should go far.

There was another long bickering battle for her among the judges and she ended up choosing Delta over the Maddens.

Although many have bought into the Delta/Jessie cat fight and are taking sides on social media, we are not alone in seeing it for what it is. Check out Viewers of The Voice furious at Nine for pitting females against each other in a bid for ratings to get another realistic view of how Channel 9 are conning their viewers.

Tune in again on Sunday for the last of the Blind Auditions and no doubt more fabricated animosity between the judges.

The Voice 2015

The Australian Version of The Voice Returns

with a British Star



Obviously we are now in a ratings period for Australian television. The repeats and erratic programming have taken a break and a slew of new shows and big returns have hit our screens. Houdini, Under the Dome, Master Chef, The Blacklist and more.

The Voice 2015 Panel

Not least of those returns is The Voice. The panel has been reshuffled. Ricky Martin and Joel Madden have returned, as has Delta Goodrem, after being benched for Kylie Minogue last year. In a twist, Joel has been joined by his twin brother Benji, in a double spinning chair, and the token black guy is actually a second girl this year, none other than the English multiple hit maker Jessie J.

I’m a bit of a fan of Jessie J. She really can sing and she writes her own material, as well as writing for some of the biggest names around, including Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus. I first came across her on the Graham Norton show and she blew me away, as I was expecting just another pop princess.

Jessie has plenty of experience on the British version of The Voice and so far has proved to be very competitive and quite the scene stealer on the Australian show.

We are yet to see if The Madden Brothers have any advantage, being a team. In the first three episodes it seems to have been more of a hindrance, with a certain amount of fraternal bickering and difficulty in recruiting team members.

Apart from the personnel, little else has changed. The judges/coaches still recruit their team members without seeing them, but not without a sob story. Jessie J seems to have inherited Seal‘s telepathic ability to spot when a singer has a sad story to tell.

I don’t want to belittle anyone’s loss. Losing a close friend or family member is devastating, I know. But why does that have to define them for the show? I’m guessing because that is what the producers have found sells.

The Voice Come Backs

The Voice 2015 Come Back Kids

The Voice 2015 Come Back Kids. Gail Page, Keely Brittain, Aviida featuring Paula Parore

As well as the returning judges, we’ve had a few returning competitors too. Paula Parore from Perth, who was knocked out in the battle round with, series one winner, Karise Eden, is back this year with her husband, as a duo. Both have very good voices and plenty of gigging experience, so let’s hope that they are not pitched against one of the big potential winners too soon this time around.

Gail Page was one of the sensations of the first series when she was knocked back by all of the judges, despite her tremendous voice. This time she had all of the judges, bar Jessie J, turn for her and she went with Ricky Martin.

Another success was the very beautiful young singer from the remote WA fishing town of Denmark, Keely Brittain. She also got no one to turn, when she auditioned last year, but this year hooked the Madden Brothers and Delta Goodrem. She joined Team Delta.

Jessie_J_on_her_sick-bed

Jessie J looking very ill this week in hospital

Other highlights for me have been Chris Hoskin, who gave us a great version of Crowded House‘s Fall at Your Feet and the pregnant balladeer from the ACT, Amber Nichols.

Amber sang London Grammar‘s Strong and coincidentally there was repeat of them singing it on the Graham Norton Show, aired on Channel 11 the same night. Believe it or not, Amber sang it better.

Jesssie J stormed ahead, picking up four artists the fastest, but then held back on the third show and did not turn for anyone. She has livened up the show and I hope that she can make it back for the battle rounds, having posted photos online of herself from a hospital bed, after an operation, this week. But Jessie is a trooper and has battled injuries and illness in the past to perform shows, so I am sure she will meet her commitments.

The next round of The Voice auditions airs on Sunday at 7:30 on Channel 9.

You can pick up music from Jessie J, Ricky Martin, Delta Goodrem and The Madden Brothers from the links below.
