The Voice Australia: Season 6, Knockouts 3

Okay, so I thought with that the introduction of the Knockouts, the Battle rounds were fully done away with. But now they're back? I knew the Voice producers just love to change the rules of the show every season. But changing the rules within the season is something new... We'll see how these new/old Battle… Continue reading The Voice Australia: Season 6, Knockouts 3

The Voice Australia: Season 6, The Knockouts 1

The Voice producers have decided to combine the Battles and Super Battles in the new Knockouts round. Basically each Coach's team of 12 is divided into 4 groups of 3. They compete, and a winner is announced between them. Each Coach gets 2 opportunities to steal a losing contestant from another team, leaving 6 members… Continue reading The Voice Australia: Season 6, The Knockouts 1

The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 10

Finally, the Blind Auditions are over! I think 10 episodes of Blind Auditions was way too many - especially when most of them were chock full of superfluous fodder. I'm interested to see how the Knockouts will work out next week though, given that the Battles are a signature part of the show.

Also, I'm not sure if I understood correctly, but are they doing away with the Battles and… Continue reading The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 9

The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 8

I'll be the first to admit that the depth of talent has (for want of a better word) dwindled over the past few seasons. But even among the rabble, we sometimes get talent that we can sink our teeth into. Even in this season, there have been some great contestants so far. I just don't… Continue reading The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 8

The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 7

Aside from the awkward and obviously producer-manufactured Seal vs. Boy George feud, this was actually a pretty good episode. I feel like the pool of talent is getting deeper, with each Coach having some strong contestants on their teams. While there have been a few odd choices from our Coaches and The Voice producers, I'm… Continue reading The Voice Australia: Season 6, Blind Auditions 7
