    Thanks for posting that. I'd love to hear what else he can do. His voice is like buttah.

    I liked Vicci better before I heard her sing "Love is a Battlefield" - which I didn't get to see/hear until I read all the praise on here about it. I think Pat Benatar is incredible (used to listen to my "Crimes of Passion" LP over and over and over again), and Vicci didn't even come close to holding a candle to her. It reminded me of contestants on AI attempting to sing Mariah or Whitney songs, and all they do is show how inferior to the originals they are.

    Overall, I didn't care for this show as much as others seem to. It sounds like it will be going up against AI next year. Will be interesting to see how it all shakes out. If nothing else happens, I hope AI realizes they need to choose their top contestants well. I don't know how many times somebody was passed up, and it left many people shaking their heads as to why.

    Just went and watched the performances again from the results show, or at least three of them. I couldn't bring myself to watch Dia/Miranda again. Anyway, I watched Javier/Stevie to see if I had been too harsh in not liking them, but nah, I wasn't. I really don't mean to insult a legend, but on her opening verse poor Stevie looked like she was stoned. Those hand gestures didn't help, either. It looked like she was in her own world, conducting an imaginary choir. It only got better when Javier jumped in. Their voices blended well.Beverly and Vicci were still great. I wish they would make their duets available as downloads.
    I have to be honest....I couldn't handle hearing her sing! Javier saved that song! Stevie....when she sang I looked at my DH and said, "I didn't know she still sang." DH, "She doesn't...can't you tell?!" He wasn't nice but he was honest about her.

    Yep, Javier was the chosen winner from the beginning, and there was no surprise there at all. Javier was my least favorite of the 4, but I didn't vote so I can't complain. I wish him well in his career.

    I don't get all the support for Javier, must be the R&B fans.

By the way nice avatar, don't know if its true but from what I read Meg is the better overall talent of the two.
    I never heard Dia sounding the least bit country. I liked her because of the indy vibe, her voice was different. Javier was just run of the mill R&B to me. However, I would rather have seen Vicci win than either of those two.

    If it is going up against AI, I will be watching AI and probably watch the Voice online. It was an okay show, but I really don't think its superior to AI. Maybe it will push AI to think more about the singing and less about casting a reality show though, which wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Sums it up for me. I knew from the time of his blind audition that he would win since that's what everybody said would happen. And no, I never felt the love for him, either. He's got a nice voice, but as I've said before, his bland singing style just put me to sleep. At least Vicci and Beverly kept you awake, and Dia was different. Oh, well. Ce la vie.

    It just dawned on me this morning that the Superbowl (assuming we have one) is in early February, so this show will go up against AI. It's funny how people see things differently. Unless there's another spectacular talent a la Adam Lambert, I will gladly drop AI and watch this show instead. Pointless judges, boring singers, Seacrest's usual inane look-at-me-I'm-a-star "banter,"...this past season of AI was just terrible for me. This show was better in every category. If that dynamic holds up next time, then I'll be happy to jump ship--or swim away like the proverbial rat.

    Me, too. I've been searching for something to replace AI because I've been over it for a couple of seasons now. I kept watching because there wasn't a viable singing competition show to take it's place. Now we have this and soon the X-Factor. AI has lost it's spot on my DVR unless I read on here and other places that the new season has made some major changes.

    SYTYCD...you are next! Soon as somebody, anybody, comes up with a viable alternative...I'm breaking up with that show too.

    I, mistakenly, "liked" this post. I didn't see anything R&B about Javier, at all. In fact, I got the impression that, in his style, he was more identifiable with Adam Levin's style than any other singer. Christina even stated that she wanted to hear him do something more "soulful" than the "rock" he was continuously doing, IIRC.

    I thought the same thing about him. He's just about as R&B as Dia is country. If anything I see him more in the Adam and Darius Rucker (before he decided he was country) genre. His voice reminds me more of the coffeehouse/songwriter thing but I don't really see him fitting that either. Could be one of the reasons why he lost his first record deal, he's hard to put in a genre.
