2013: THE VOICE CRUSHES AMERICAN IDOL; IS NICKI MINAJ THE DOWNFALL?

10 Apr

The addition of Shakira and Usher on the new season of The Voice is more than refreshing.  It also seems to have pushed their ratings through the roof.  Is it just me or did Christina Aguilera leaving revive the show?  Not sure, but I am certainly enjoying it 100% more this year and think it was the best move of any singing competition show.

It appears that a replacement may be something for American Idol to consider.  In my opinion, it would probably help with their faltering ratings if they canned Nicki MinajAccording to some reports, they are down 10 million viewers since 2011.  Some may argue that they now have more competition and have been on the air for over a decade, but I believe Nicki and Mariah were bad choices.

While Nicki does at least provide more constructive feedback than the other judges, her nasal voice and attitude unnerves me.  If the show finds itself on the canceled list, surely she will have something to do with it.  How I miss Jennifer Lopez!

The Voice not only crushes American Idol when it comes to their judging panel, this season the talent is undeniably better.  It is still early, but the singers have already blown me away. To break it down….The Voice has better judges….check.  The Voice has better singers…check.  The Voice has a better concept…check.

I must admit The Voice originally was not my favorite singing competition, but I absolutely love the new judges! Shakira is supportive and offers Latino’s a great opportunity and Usher is just well….sexy.

It’s pretty bad when you fast forward through most singers, like I do when watching American Idol now.  Let’s face it they increased the votes to 50 per person to make it seem like millions more are voting.  Do they think the viewers are stupid?

What do you think?  Which is the better show?  Should Nicki go? Don’t forget to vote and check out the ratings listed below.

    Great blog, Britta. Putting Mariah with Nicki on “American Idol” may be a bad choice, but, I don’t think that Ms.Carey is a bad choice for “American Idol”…..she has a lot more experience in the music biz than Ms. Minaj, and she knows what she’s doing, as far as inspiring new contestants is concerned. By the way, did you know that Lazaro Arbos was voted off next last night? And then, there were five girls. Keep on e-mailing me with more blogs about “American Idol”, Cassie

      Hey Cassie! Thanks:) I agree that Mariah has a lot more experience…too bad she does not offer better feedback. It would be great if she could really share more to make them grow. And yes…Lazaro was an inspiration but was in too deep!
