When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

There was a girl on Adam's team that sang Rumor Has It in her audition. It was season 2, and I cant remember her name, but she got picked.

That's true, but most of the time when they sing an Adele song they don't pick them. Adele has such a powerful voice with a huge range - and they have even said that it is so tough for them not to compare to her.... and they have said that she is very hard to do...

That's why I'm surprised that people keep doing her. I love Adele and like hearing them sing her (especially when they do a great job) but I just feel horrible when they don't get selected (and I think they sang great - even better than others that have been picked) and the main reason seems to be their song choice did them in...

I just remembered in Season 1, Vicki Martinez nailed "Rolling in the Deep." I liked her version as much as Adele's. I know Vicki made it to the top 8.

I think it depends on the singer, but, yes, you need to have a very strong voice to sing Adele's catalogue.

When she talks, absolutely nothing she says sounds sincere.

She doesn't seem to know what she's talking about, she appears to have no confidence and she has absolutely no gravitas.

Other than that she's ok. lol

It's really painful to watch her and I can't believe The Voice did this to us.
TOTALLY disagree.

I loooooooove Shakira . What you see as insecurity I see as humility, which is the exact opposite of her predecessor, the grande Diva Aguilara... She is the new kid on the block and acts accordingly. I thinks she's adorable!

She is the main reason my 20yo son watches now, he thinks she's the bomb. I never knew her before but love her now. In fact, I love them all. Best season EVER!

I'm late to the party but wanted to chime in that I, too, LOVE Shakira and think she's a HUGE step up from Xtina. One thing I really like--she doesn't seem to just keep repeating the same comments over and over again. She actually seems to come up with something unique to say about each contestant.

I like Usher, too, but I was a big fan of Ceelo, so I'm OK with either of those two coaches. However, I will be devastated if they go back to Xtina over Shakira.

Team Adam is stacked and so far looks like the one to beat.

I agree. I really like her. I think she seems humble, has something polite or constructive to say to everyone... and acts like she's enjoying herself. I thought Christina seemed bored and condescending a lot -- and she'd dish out backhanded compliments to anyone who wasn't on her team. Rude.

ETA: I really liked Ceelo and was prepared to hate Usher. I like him more than I thought I would, but I look forward to Ceelo coming back. I'd happily trade in Christina for Shakira and never look back.

I don't really care for Shakira...she does look like a fish out of water, and very unsure of what to say.

Glad to find this thread! DH & I love the Voice. I agree that she is adorable & brings another element to the competition. Definitely my fav season so far!

I liked Ceelo because he's so out there. I like Usher but sometimes his cool attitude starts to get old imo. He brings something new though. I wish they could have 5 judges so Usher & Ceelo could both be involved.

The judge interactions are great. They keep it entertaining and positive at the same time.
