The Voice Season 3: Some Mentors Revealed

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Even though, I think airing two seasons of “The Voice” back-to-back for the 2012-2013 television season is a horrible, NBC is doing it anyway. No wonder they’re perpetually in fourth place among the big networks. They seriously need me on staff. I’ll whip them back into “Must See Television” shape. Think of me as the Asian Andy Cohen 😉 Well enough of my daydreaming, let’s talk “The Voice”.

For Season 1, Sia, Monica, Reba McEntire and Adam Blackstone assisted the judges in mentoring the contestants. Last time around Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton needed double the star power. Each judge called upon two of their famous friends to advise the singers. Kelly Clarkson & Miranda Lambert (Shelton), Alanis Morissette & Robin Thicke (Levine), Ne-Yo & Babyface (Green), and Lionel Richie & Jewel (Aguilera) were all “trusted advisers”. Find out who’s on tap for Season 3 below.

It seems that Christina Aguilera can’t seem to get herself out of the clutches of those catty women over at “Fashion Police.” Xtina has had a feud with Kelly Osbourne for years, but now it looks like the feud has spilled over into the hands of another member of the panel. Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, none other than Joan Rivers took a little stab at the blonde pop star and Voice judge.

After roasting Winona Ryder on her shoplifting past, Joan took a saunter over to the Xtina side of life and told a little story about a “recent experience.” She says, “I’m at Spago’s with [daughter] Melissa, and we’re eating dinner, and Fatso is across the way, and she comes lumbering over with that ‘no-neck’ look. And I go, ‘Here it comes.’ She comes over to my table and says, ‘You gonna finish that?’” Ouch! That’s quite a low blow, even for the legendary comic. Check out the video below.

Billboard: Summer Songs Of The 1990s

In: Donovan, Music

With the race officially on for summer song of this year, I thought it was the perfect time to revisit some former “summer song” title holders. The good folks over at Billboard.com have dug up the archives and tabulated the best summer songs of 1990s. Taking into account airplay and sales, they’ve listed the Top Ten songs of each year during the 90s decade.

What is about summer songs that bring forth a unique sense of nostalgia? Browsing through the Billboard list brought forth a flood of memories upon reading the songs of each year. I could literally recall the smell and visual the sights and experiences of that respective summer. If I could dig up my old mixtapes of yesteryear, 90% of these songs would’ve probably been on there.

Take a trip down memory lane and check out what teenagers were pumping out of boomboxes (does anyone still use that word) on the beach during the 90s. It’s interesting to see who’s still around and which artists have faded into music obscurity. Don’t forget to VOTE on which year in the 90s had the best summer songs.

After a Super Bowl premiere, months of twirling chairs and battle rounds, “The Voice” finally crowned its Season 2 winner. Between you and me, I was definitely surprised, if not shocked, by the results. But before we get to the actual results, I want to briefly discuss last night’s finale. Don’t worry, I’m not going to make you endure 110 minutes of filler like Carson Daly did last night. Instead, it’ll be two short paragraphs.

To say the results show was bloated, would be an understatement. That being said there were some moments, I actually enjoyed. You’d think all the high-wattage performances by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, Lady Antebellum and Hall & Oates would’ve stolen the show. NOT. Instead, what I enjoyed the most were the group performances by the Final 4 contestants. Each finalist invited former contestants to perform on stage with. It was interesting to see which eliminated singers Jermaine Paul, Tony Lucca, Juliet Simms and Chris Mann chose. It didn’t necessarily always fall within team lines. Personally, I loved Jermaine Paul’s group song on “I Want You Back” with Pip, James Massone & Jamar Rogers.

After Monday night’s penultimate episode, I predicted that the title would be between Juliet Simms and Chris Mann, with Tony Lucca and Jermaine Paul finishing in third and fourth. Simms wasn’t her best on Monday night, due to a cold, but I thought her stellar performances on “Roxanne” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” from previous weeks would carry her to the win. At least, that’s what I was hoping for. See if I predicted correctly.

If you caught The Voice tonight, you have caught this little suggestion that Christina Aguilera had after watching contestant Tony Lucca’s performance. Tony decided to take on a rendition of Britney’s classic “Baby One More Time“.

If you remember from previous episodes, Christina Aguilera was quick to criticize Tony calling him one-dimensional and that he had an unfair advantage with his ties to the Mickey Mouse Club. He’s even had some online endorsement from former Mouseketeer Justin Timberlake. Tonight however, Aguilera changed her tune with some different comments.

She took it in stride and invited Timberlake to join herself and Tony on stage for a full fledged Mickey Mouse Club Reunion. She also liked Tony’s darker version of the pop tune and appreciated him making it his own. In response to Christina’s comments, Tony told The Hollywood Reporter that he and coach Adam Levine have something very special planned. I can’t wait to see what that could be. Check out Tony’s performance from tonight’s show below.

You would think Matt Bomer’s upcoming guest appearance on “Glee” is like the second coming of Jesus, considering the number of posts we write about it. He does have that silky dark hair though. LOL. To be fair, it’s just not Bomer I’m excited about, but the fact we get eight straight new episodes of the Fox musical when it returns. Plus, like most of you, I’m curious to know if the writers killed of Quinn.

Up to this point, we’ve seen backstage footage of Matt Bomer and even seen one of his duets with Darren Criss. The two cover Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know“. Given that the episode is titled “Big Brother“, we simply can’t be treated to just one duet. It is Matt Bomer after all. The one I’ve been looking forward to hearing the most since I first learned about it, is the Duran Duran mashup. After hearing it, I have to say it was worth the wait. The two belt out the 80s classics “Rio” and “Hungry Like The Wolf“.

If that wasn’t enough music for you, the familial drama continues with an emotional solo by Darren Criss. His character Blaine really goes to town on Christina Aguilera’s first foray into rock music, “Fighter“. It’s definitely one of my favorite tracks ever from Xtina. Criss does a solid job on the angst-ridden track. Check out “Fighter” and the Duran Duran mashup below, before the powers-that-be take down the YouTube audio.

In an effort to drum up some interest for her home, Christina Aguilera has released pictures of her $13.5 million listed Beverly Hills mansion. Aguilera had paid $11.5 million when she bought the home from the Osbourne family back in 2008.

When you look at the pictures, you’ll think that you’re looking at pictures from the set of her “Lady Marmalade” music video. A lot of pink and it’s quite over the top. That being said, I wouldn’t expect anything less than a pop star like Christian Aguilera. Some rooms I don’t mind, but others aren’t my favorite. Although not shown in the photos below, the home also has a gym, gift-wrapping area, pool with water slide and grotto spa. I’ve linked to the page below where you can view more photos should you desire.

Now that two episodes of NBC’s reality competition have aired, I thought it was the perfect time to chime in. Since Adam has taken over the reins of recapping “American Idol“, I thought I’d tackle on “The Voice“. The show has certainly gotten off to a great start due to its plum post-Super Bowl premiere. It trounced the viewers “Glee” raked in last year after the big event. I’m curious to see if it can maintain the momentum. If it does, “American Idol” might finally lose its throne come season’s end.

While I’m loving the chemistry with the judges, I’m a little underwhelmed with the blind auditions. Perhaps it’s due to audition fatigue from watching “X Factor” and “American Idol” or maybe the swivel chair appeal has worn off. Whatever it is, I’m not as excited as I was last year. That said, there are a few standouts worth mentioning. I definitely like the fact that we’re not treated to intentionally awful singers to fill time. I’m also glad that the show has addressed the professional backgrounds of some of the contestants. Full disclosure is always appreciated in my books.

Before I get to my favorite auditions so far, can we briefly talk about Christina’s boobs. I know they’re probably natural, but have those puppies gotten bigger since last year. Or are they simply a result of Aguilera’s weight gain or an ill-fitting bra? Whatever the reason, they sure are distracting. Even Blake Shelton commented that one of the contestants was being swayed by her décolletage. Another noteworthy item are Cee Lo’s eyebrows. Man, those are some sculpted and arced masterpieces. Now that I’ve gotten those things off my chest, let’s get to the auditions.
