So here’s a major difference between American Idol and the Voice in a nutshell. The Live shows will kick off with performances by…the contestants? NOPE. The JUDGES.
The Voice’s Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will open their first live show Tuesday with a medley of Queen Songs.
The four coaches will perform “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.” Their last collaboration came on the breakout show’s premiere episode, when they performed “Crazy.”
“Kicking off the debut of the live episode of The Voice with these high energy renditions of classic Queen hits will set the tone for our live shows,” said NBC and Universal Media Studios executive vice president of alternative programming Paul Telegdy.
It’s the judges who are setting the tone for the live competition? Really? If Idol debuted THEIR live shows with Jlo, Steven and Randy taking the stage to “set the tone” with a performance I’d be throwing things at my TV. SIT DOWN JUDGES and JUDGE I’d be bitching.
Yeah. BIG difference between the two shows. If the talent can’t carry The Voice, the show is in big trouble.
