Television: The Voice

We have been watching this new show "The Voice".

Basically it is a show about four accomplished "artists" (Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine)  who listened to auditions "blind" - without seeing who was singing - and chose based on voice alone if they wanted to have the person on their "team". They then  coach their singes to compete against one another.

I think the idea is kind of cool - to judge someone based on voice alone and not on appearance, and some of the performers have impressed me.

This week at the beginning of the show, the "judges" or "coaches" came out and sang together.
(The above photo is of them performing.)

Really Christina? Really?
What the HELLFIRE are you wearing?

I'm not so naive as to think that you are out on stage representing all women. I pretty much think you are out there representing yourself. Which is great. Do your thing. Put yourself out there.
Just one small request please - next time put something on that isn't crawling up your crotch. It was gross.

I may not have even noticed your crotch except for the fact that the heels on your shoes were SO high that you couldn't stand up straight so you had to walk around with this "bent knee" thing - which pushed your crotch right into my face.

Not nice. Not nice at all. I could barely focus on the music your crotch was such a distraction - and believe me it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact I am a lesbian. There is a time and place for crotches, and primetime television is not either.

Well, there's your argument for listening blind to a singer, you won't be assaulted by their dress sense.

As for the show, I doubt the contestant haven't been interviewed by producers type people before making it onto the actual show. None of these reality shows have much reality in 'em...

I have enjoyed this show as well and had the same opinion on Christina's outfit choice. Although only a few minutes before she came out I was also thinking that CeeLo could have put more effort into his - the tracksuit was a bit casual!
