    I'm sure we are seeing people who would never make it on Idol given their appearance and/or age, but I'm sure all were selected - to some degree - based on looks before even stepping on stage. What I'm seeing is that producers have selected people that fall into one of 3 categories - good-looking, average looking, and unique looking given age and/or style. A good mix, but none who are completely off the charts gross and still the majority fall into the good-looking category.

    Still, once there, the judges must select without seeing the contestants' physical appearance, and that does count for *somthing*.

    Very good observations.

    How were the people selected to be on this show, did they ever explain?

    That seems to be one of the million dollar questions! As I stated pages earlier, I think this whole thing is scripted and manipulated. That is not to say that it might not be the best show this season....BUT for us to believe that the contestants are random and looking to be discovered as a diamond in the rough would not be prudent.

    I missed the premiere, but caught it this weekend on satellite! I watched only because of the great buzz, and am so glad that I did. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it all. The opening number of Crazy was just incredible and I can't imagine how exciting it would be to see it in person!!! Javier was my favourite performer by far, but I enjoyed all of them.

    Blake, I fell in love with a couple of years ago on Clash of the Choirs, (one of the best shows ever on TV)....and he did not disappoint. I adore that man, and he is sooooo very funny. I also loved Adam...he is so witty, totally unexpected. Ceilo was great....loved his banter with them all, and Christina is so talented, I am interested to see her as a coach, since it all seems to come so easy to her. Can she actually know how to help someone be better?? I am excited for tonight and have told all my family and friends to tune in. GO JAVIER!!!!
    Thanks
    Karey

    'The Voice': Javier Colon is clearly the early favorite

    After last night’s premiere of the The Voice, there is some dissension on whether NBC’s new singing competition is “a garish bore,” as EW’s Ken Tucker says in his review, or surprisingly entertaining — at least in the blind audition round — as I would argue. What’s not up for debate, however: 33-year-old father-of-two Javier Colon, who sang a stripped version of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” is the one to beat so far. Watch the clip below. It shows the best of the blind audition concept: A talented performer, all four coaches (Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton) pushing their “I Want You” buttons, and the contestant getting to choose which star will be his mentor after they each try to woo him to his or her team.

    UPDATE: No wonder everyone wanted him: Per Javier’s Facebook page, his résumé includes two solo albums on Capitol before he broke out of the “urban R&B” mold and started opening for the likes of Joss Stone and the Indigo Girls.

    He'd better sing better than he did at that audition, or he won't be my favorite. I hated his song.

    And Cyndy Lauper recorded that song? Yuk. For me, the definitive version will always be the orginal: that male/female duet off the "Strictly Ballroom" movie soundtrack.

    Cyndi Lauper is the co-writer and performer of the original version, which is just gorgeous in my opinion, and has never been improved upon.

    Oh, I have to admit - this made me laugh heartily.

    I agree. People should just stop trying to sing it.
