Has anyone else been watching “The Voice”? I started watching it for the premise that it was all about how good someone is vocally, but honestly, after watching this clip from last night’s episode, it lead me to believe they changed the rules in one of the episodes I missed to root for the tone def and the pitchiest singers they could find.
In this clip Christina “VocalsRunnethOver” Aguilera and her
backup singers team did a rendition of LaBelle’s classic “Lady Marmalade” and boy was it a howl fest. I almost wished Patti LaBelle would have showed up, showed out and kicked her heels in the direction of the contestants to show them how a true diva does it. Oh wait, she has done that before.
I really enjoyed Christina’s Back to Basics album but since then she has been stricken by the worst affliction of powerful singers: the tendency to over sing everything. I just want somebody to yell at her and say that part of the song doesn’t need a run… just relax. Now, I need to relax. I’m gonna go put on some Sade.
IPS Note: I haven’t caught a SINGLE episode of “The Voice” but that Beverly chick!? I’d buy that album in a heartbeat. I can already tell from this clip.
