The Voice s4 – Teams Adam & Usher Sing Live

07 May

It was the first night of live performances, and teams Adam and Usher performed. For the most part, I was underwhelmed.

In Team Usher’s live performance, the men shined and the women did not, but when it came time for their individual performances, Cathia had the third best performance of the night, and Michelle’s version of True Colors was the second best. (I did want to gag the back-up singers, though.)

The women of Team Adam were also mostly mediocre, with the exception of Judith, who closed out the show and, as expected, gave the strongest performance of the night.

MythBusters (s10, ep1)

02 May

It is the 10th anniversary season of Mythbusters, and they opened it the right way, with a revisit to the very first myth and very first Mythbusters episode- the jato rocket car. This is not the first time they have revisted this myth, but it will likely be the last time.

We had two spectacular rocket blasts and two spectacularly twisted hunks of metal at the end. After proving the myth could not have happened the way it was stated, they tried to replicate the results. The actual results were two destroyed Impalas and five very giddy Mythbusters. Happy Anniversary!

The Voice s4 – Knockout Rounds Teams Blake & Usher

01 May

Tonight there were actually a few really clear winners, something we had not had last night. And in fact, I actually agreed with every decision made, which is really rare.

Blake once again kept no one he stole, but did keep a duo, something we have not seen in the live rounds before.

I did notice that one performer whose battle round we did not see still made it through the knockouts. He (and anyone else they montaged the blind audition or battle round for) has had one less performance to build up an audience. That’s hard to make up.
