So ‘The Voice’ goes country again. Let’s talk about why last night’s eliminations could be the show’s downfall and more! STay tuned for next weeks episode…
After last night, The Voice is officially on it’s way to the Top 6 and quickly falling into the all-too-familiar pattern of last season. With the shocking elimination of Team Adam’s Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill — both of whom my colleague Adam Carlson and I had pegged for the final four — America has once again sided with Team Blake. Deja vu, anyone?
If this pattern becomes routine, it could easily be the downfall of the show. If each year, America becomes infatuated with Blake and his country roots, therefore siding with his talented country artists over some of the most original voices in the competition — much like this season’s Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill — the show could be at risk of becoming predictable, which is the kiss of death for any reality show (or any show, really). Is Danielle Bradbery not this year’s Cassadee Pope?
Will you keep watching if Blake wins yet again with yet another country artist? Do you agree that Blake being so lovable plays into how successful his contestants are (all talent aside)? Is The Voice becoming a country music competition?
