I am so super-stoked about the new season of The Voice premiering in less than a week! I have been an avid watcher since its premiere back in 2011. The only thing that got me tuned in to the show was the fact that I’m a big Maroon 5 fan. Like, the biggest fan ever. So when Adam Levine decided that he was going to be a judge on the show, I was the first to go on MySpace and spread the word. A lot of people give me flack for liking Adam Levine so much, but to me, he is the epitome of what every man should be, just as Christina Aguilera is what every teenage girl should be.

After I welcomed all the guest(s) to my Voice Premiere Party, we sat down to watch the show. At first I thought it was any ordinary “singer off the street” show and just as I was about to turn it off, they did something unprecedented: the judges turned their chairs around.thevoicechairs

I was…blown…the fuck…away. You couldn’t force me to turn the television off since then. What an unprecedented move, turning the chairs around so the judges couldn’t see who was singing exactly. I was like, “Finally! Finally, somebody brought some goddamn integrity back to primetime singing competitions!”

Now these singers can instantly fade into obscurity based on their talents alone and not by how they look. Because I don’t know if you know this, but every super model you see strutting down the cat walk can also sing like Cecilia Bartoli.

And not only did they have a hit show on their hands, but a hit song as well! Adam Levine collaborated with fellow judge Christina Aguilera and they came out with, “Moves Like Jagger.” Like, I would have sworn this was all manufactured by the corporate executives in order to plug the show, but when you have somebody as talented and perpetually shirtless as Adam Levine, you know he is all about the muse and not the money and attention. He’s a craftsman, not a tool.

A true artist

After an extremely tense first season, where the judges’ chairs were turned and people sang, a winner was chosen. I promised myself that I was going to buy his album, but as soon as I turned off the television I forgot his name. What was his name? Anyone? Shoot. Oh well. I’m hoping to buy one album by one of these winners at some point.

But let’s not worry about that! In just six days, The Voice will be premiering and I cannot sit still! I wonder what will happen this season. Which chair will Adam sit in? Which direction will their chairs turn? Clockwise? Counterclockwise? The possibilities are endless! What is your favorite part of the show? Me, I like it when they turn their chairs around, but that’s only because I have integrity.
