The Voice


This post will be a full blown youtube spasms post so please feel free to disregard it entirely. 

So for those of you who haven't seen the show there are four coaches; Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton.

In the first part of the series there are a series of blind auditions. Singers get up and perform while the coaches are sitting in chairs with their backs to them. That way the performers are purely judged on their voice instead of how they dress, look, or act.

Each coach gets twelve slots to fill and then as soon as those twelve team members are chosen they instantly go to the battle rounds and whittle it down to six members.

Team Adam:
Tony Lucca
Katrina Parker
Karla Davis
Kim Yarbrough

Team Cee Lo:
Juliet Simms
Jamar Rogers
James Massone
Erin Martin
Tony Vincent

Team Christina:
Chris Mann
Lindsey Pavao
Ashley De La Rosa
Jesse Campbell
Moses Stone
Sera Hill

Team Blake:
Jermaine Paul
Erin Willet
Jordis Unga
Charlotte Sometimes
Naia  Kete

Of those my favorites were Tony Lucca, Mathai, Juliet Simms, Tony Vincent, Lindsey Pavao,  Ashley De La Rosa, Jamar Rogers, and Raelynn.

Now for a TON of Youtube videos! :D :D :D

Out of the top 4 he was one of the ones I wanted to win. :P

This was my favorite of his performances :D

I could seriously watch this video a million times.......... I kind of love her.

In both these videos I definitely think she sounds better than the originals.

Both of them were amazing... I am glad Tony won though. The bit where he sings "Oooo girl...."

He was SO good......

She was my favorite... I wanted her to win so badly! Everything about this performance just gives me goosebumps.

And I don't even like this song...

So yeah... I'm looking forward to the next season! :P

Hi there.........

So yeah. So much for the two posts a week resolution. :P I've been so busy between work and Benny and various other things that I haven't had much of a chance to clean my room let alone post on my blog. (I did clean my room a couple days ago, thus the posting.)

But tonight as I was walking home from choir I was realizing that it wasn't quite dark yet... It was dusky, but there was definitely still daylight. That got me thinking about seasons and the different things they bring. I know that's generic but still, I felt like doing a post about it. :)


It's so interesting to me how in the winter it gets dark at seven o'clock and then in the summer it stays light out till what, nine or ten? In the winter it's hard to imagine that and in the summer it just seems to weird to think about it being dark that early.


Then there's the wonderful things each season brings, specifically smells. Spring just smells so good this year! There's the sweet scent of daphne, cherry blossoms, and lilacs mixed with rain and grass and growing. I'd forgotten how good it smelled.

Summer has a lovely smell too. A warm soft scent made of dirt, new mowed grass and the fresh morning air early on in the morning. 

Summer summer summer

Summer does have some smells that aren't so nice... Mainly melting asphalt but the goods out weigh the bads. :)

Fall is one of my favorites with it's spicy smells of falling leaves, smoke, and the crisp feeling of the air.


Currently I'm still loving the spring smells and looking forward to summer ones! Take some time to stop and smell the flowers. :)
