I did not watch “The Voice” this season — as I said I would not in March of this year — because the show had changed into something unfamiliar and unlikable:
The way to fix The Voice — and fix it fast! — is for the coaches to be more involved in the performance preparation process. They need to require the proper tempo. They need to tell a contestant they are awful when they are awful. They need to buck up and stop picking on each other and start mentoring their singers so a new and necessary talent is anointed on the show.
Imagine my surprise when I kept hearing the name “Cassadee Pope” lingering in the mainstream media as the winner of season three of The Voice.
“Hmm,” I thought to myself, “The obnoxious spelling of ‘Cassadee’ is ringing familiar in both eye and ear. Let me look her up.”
In doing a simple Google search on “Cassadee Pope” I was presented with this right sidebar information box right on the Google search returns page. When I saw the reference to “Hey Monday” — I began to realize there was something odd afoot at the altar of the mainstream pop mindset if Cassadee was just crowned the “winner” of a singing competition.
