The Voice this season is NBC’s saving grace. TV Critics. predicted a ratings decline with Christina Aguilera’s and Cee Lo Green’s departure. Instead, it has had the opposite effect. In fact, The Voice is now more popular then American Idol, thanks to Shakira and Usher joining the show. What’s in store for The Voice this season? Here’s the latest spoilers, rumors, and predictions.
Astrochicks loves, The Voice, especially the chemistry between the judges. Blake Shelton a Gemini is our personal favorite, with his witty banter and sexy cowboy strut, he’s definitely our celebrity crush. Yes, The Voice singing talent is solid but Shelton’s is even tastier eye candy.
The big challenge for The Voice this year? They need to choose a singer who can actually sell records. Astrochicks astrology prediction, Usher or Shakira, will have the winning team this season. Blake’s won twice, Adam has won once and we need some new flavor.
Usher, who’s sold a bazillion records and helped launch Justin Bieber’s career, we think has the industry klout and keen eye for talent. In fact, the RIAA ranks Usher as one of the best-selling artists in American music history, having sold over 23 million copies in the United States alone. To date, Usher has sold over 65 million records worldwide, making him one of the best selling music artists of all time.
Usher a Libra, also brings lots of drama and gossip to the Voice, judges table. Last year, his public divorce and child custody dispute with ex wife, Tameka Foster, was constant fodder for the tabloids. He accused his former wife of being unstable, inattentive, and irresponsible. She blamed her depression for Usher’s cheating ways. The court sided with the singer and granted him full custody of his kids.
Also, when it comes to dating, Usher LOVES older women and is rumored to be dating ex girlfriend, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, who recently sat down with Wendy Williams and dished the deets here. Astrochicks thinks Usher equals ratings gold.
For Shakira an Aquarius girl, she’s a fiery Latina who could easily push a winning team member to number one. She knows, what’s muy caliente and we think Mary Miranda might be her winning ticket.
For The Voice spoilers, we love Mary Miranda, Josiah Hawley, Midas Whale and The Swon Brothers. They have a strong chance to make the final four. You can check out the team artists here. Enjoy!
Last night, Cassadee Pope was crowned “The Voice” winner. The young popstar, who decided to go slightly country, beat out Terry McDermott and Nicholas David for a coveted record deal. Did she deserve to win the finals and will she continue to work with Blake Shelton, post the Voice? Here’s the latest update on Cassadee Pope. Plus, The Voice rumors and predictions for next season.
Cassadee Pope, who hails from Florida is a down to earth indie rock chick. Born under the zodiac sign of Virgo, she has enjoyed moderate music success in the past, fronting the pop punk band, Hey Monday.
In 2011, Cassadee’s band decided to take a break from touring, which led her to audition for The Voice. Somehow, our loveable Gemini judge, Blake Shelton, convinced her to join his team and the rest is musical history.
When it comes to music, no doubt, Cassadee Pope has a distinct sound. She’s the girl who can make you shed a tear, with her emotional rendtion of each song she sings and its heartfelt lyrics. When it comes to recording a studio album, what are Cassadee’s plans for the future?
“If you were to take Taylor Swift, make it edgier with a just a little hint of country and make the lyrics a little more mature, that would be the direction I’d like to take,” Pope told Billboard.
In addition, she’s invited Blake Shelton to help her in the studio, with his magic country dust to sprinkle across the album. He said, ”I would pay her to be on her record. I wish I could scientifically describe what it is about her, but I can’t explain it – she’s just one of those people destined to be a star.” Gotta love Blake, he’s definitely taken on a big brother/mentor role with our Virgo girl.
For Cassadee Pope, she’s not afraid to open her heart and share with her fans how she’s feeling. Outspoken about her estranged relationship with her father, she proudly told the Voice fans that she reconnected with her dad because of the show. Together, they are going to take baby steps to bridge the communication gap and be a family once again.
For Cassadee Pope’s mom, sister, and boyfriend…they are her biggest fans. They’ve all moved to California to support her singing career and her new solo album, which Astrochicks predicts will be a smash hit. Of course, this will only happen if she allows Blake Shelton to guide her and even possibly produce her. As a team, Cassadee and Blake have an undeniable chemistry that will be a hit making machine.
For Terry McDermott and Nicholas David, we so hope they get record deals as well. So talented, Astrochicks loved loved love this season of the Voice. We can’t wait to check out the new judges, Usher and Shakira. I’m sure it will be just as fun. Stay tuned.
Tonight, the Voice seemed scripted on who would be chosen for the live show. Each time, the judges paired one strong singer with a weaker singer. Also, choosing a song that would favor the stronger voice and who they thought had a better “stage” presence. The only judge that seemed the most authentic, was Cee Lo Green. What’s up with that?
The stand out performance on the Voice tonight, by far, was Jamar. Paired with Ne-Yo, Jamar Rogers got the props he needed to make the song his own. The young singer was able to tap into his own personal pain, to connect with the song, “I Want to Know What Love Is” and bring raw emotion to his performance. And Jamar certainly has plenty of life experience to draw upon, a former drug addict, and HIV positive, life has been an uphill battle. Jamar said, “If I win this, it will be a victory for anyone who has ever overcome anything,” which he brought it home tonight on the Voice.
Not too sure about the bedazzled CD disk on Christina Aguilera’s head, I guess she was channeling her inner Cher. Not a good luck for her, but she’s still very beautiful. Astrochicks is placing her hopes on Jamar making the final four. Stay tuned next week, for the next round of song battlers on the Voice.
Christina Aguilera, star of the hit series “The Voice,” has risen from the ashes to claim her spot as top diva once again. In a new interview, she discusses her divorce from Jordan Bratman, her new boyfriend Matt Rutler, and her issue with drinking. Christina’s all about getting real.
In her new interview, Christina Aguilera even hints that both she and Bratman had affairs during their marriage. “At one time or another, we were both not angels. It got to a point where our life at home was reminding me of my own childhood,” says the singer, who has admitted to growing up in an unhappy and sometimes abusive home. “I will not have my son (Max, 3) grow up in a tension-filled home.”
Christina says, “I knew there would be a be a negative reaction in the press to my divorce, but I am not going to live my life because of something someone might say,” she continues. “That goes against everything I sing on my records. I have to be myself.”
What about her boyfriend Matt Rutler? Christina says she’s found love with a supportive man. What does the future hold for our Sagittarius girl? First and foremost, her new show “The Voice” has made her number one again. With a new album just around the corner, we expect her new CD to be a smash hit.
In the love department, we don’t see Matt Rutler as Christina’s soulmate but someone who will continue to give her the love and support she needs. When it comes to love, Christina Aguilera swings both ways, and Astrochicks think by next summer she will be bored of her man. For Matt Rutler, he needs to stop putting his life on hold for Christina. He’s a talented guy and I see success in his future with his music career. Come on Christina, throw him a bone.
For now, Christina should buckle up and enjoy the ride. We predict “The Voice” will last about five seasons. Stay tuned.
The Voice, the new number one NBC show, debuted the live version of its competition. Christina Aguilera’s team competed against Blake Shelton’s team. Who blew it out the door? Jared Blake and Beverly McClellan in the house!
Although Christina Aguilera’s outfit was distracting tonight, our Sagittarius girl was having a fashion emergency, somebody get her a stylist please. The show appeared not as polished as American Idol, but it was fun to see each team compete against each other. On Christina’s team, Beverly McClellan killed it with her Melissa Ethridge tune. Unique and fresh, she definitely has big career ahead, whether she wins or not.
For Blake Shelton’s team, Jared Blake was a crowd favorite tonight with a Kings of Leon song. In recent interview with Reality Wanted, Jared was asked how Blake is a coach. Jared said: “He’s been awesome as a coach. I dug him and wanted to work with him because of his personality but he’s also been very, very positive. In this industry, you get told what you’re not doing right. Blake’s approach with me is what I was doing right and what my strengths were. It’s been awesome working with him and you know exactly where you stand with him which is the most you can ask out of a leader of any kind.”
Astrochicks has a soft spot for Xenia, a sweet teen with a really cool voice. She’s still young and has an opportunity to grow as an artist. It will be interesting to see how it plays out and who’s eliminated this week. Personally, we think Team Blake Shelton won tonight. Don’t forget to vote here. Stay tuned.
