    Trigger kind of wrote a article about it a while ago. I'm not going to post the while thing. I'll only post the parts that I agree with and not Jake. He talks about Jake. I do enjoy watching The Voice. I think this is true.

    Jake Worthington & The Great Reality Show Hype

    Jake Worthington & The Great Reality Show Hype Saving Country Music

    Have you ever heard of Justin Guarini? How about Diana DeGarmo? Blake Lewis, anybody? Or how about Lee DeWyze? Does Dia Frampton ring a bell with anyone? Anyone?

    Dia Frampton was a contestant on the inaugural season of NBC’s reality singing contest The Voice. Frampton, like all of the other names listed above, was either a runner up, or a winner of either The Voice or American Idol. And there’s an infinite list of other indistinguishable names from where these names came from: singers that reached the very heights of reality show competition, only to fade back into the unknown masses once the next season kicked off. Reality singing show nerds might be laughing at me right now, knowing all of these names, and the styles and stats of each artist. And so maybe to them, I’m the one who needs to fade back into the unknown masses. But even those people should hang with me for just a second more.

    Not to pick on poor Dia Frampton, but let’s just take a look back at what happened to her after she made it onto The Voice finale, and almost won. In December of 2011, Dia released an album called Red through Universal Republic Records. How did the album do? It reached a peak of #106 on the Billboard charts. The album’s lone single “The Broken Ones” didn’t chart at all. But in reality, that’s not bad compared to the actual Season 1 winner of The Voice, Javier Colon. His album peaked at #134 on the Billboard charts. In fact Javier, who had his own successful music career before The Voice, released an album way back in 2003 that made it to #91 on Billboard—43 spots better than the album contracted to him after his big reality show win.

    Of course for all these types of anecdotal stories about reality show winners, there are success stories such as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and to a lesser extent, artists like Kellie Pickler and Scotty McCreery. But many of these big stars came from the first few seasons of American Idol, while many other finalists and winners have completely dropped off the map or have taken to starring in other reality show competitions, or reprising B-level acting roles to attempt to keep the momentum of their big reality show win rolling.

    Producers try to shake up the production, they shove more star power into these shows than the viewer can compute. ABC, despite the writing on the wall that with so many of these singing shows, they’re cannibalizing each other, is still starting their own competition come next season. But these shows are not delivering on their promise to the American public of delivering stars that they will then see selling out arenas, and performing on the Grammy Awards. That is why the singing reality show model is losing steam.

    Opportunity is only what you make of it, and regardless of what the marketeers of these shows try to sell you on, the simple fact is nobody has the power to anoint a star. The winners themselves must still rise to find themselves, must still figure out a way to connect with the public at large. Some stars have done this like Carrie Underwood. Many haven’t like Javier Colon.
    The bolded being the most important part.

    I think they'd get a fairly big star if they PROMOTED the artists. They kinda just put people out there and don't really give them anything to work with.

    Exactly. The artists are out of luck. This show is promotion for the JUDGES and MENTORS. And of course, they both profit along with NBC.

    I completely agree. They should do behind the scenes and the banter with the singers instead of the coaches. They tell the singers story and then after blinds its about the coaches.

    I am so over the voice, and american idol. You never hear of most of these people after the season ends, so why still have them on. I think they need to make it so the voice is on in the fall, and american idol in the spring. They. Also need to change judges every year, so they can kind of keep it fresh.

    I think Blake has the strongest team so far, and I think Adam has the weakest.

    Christina has a lot of talent too but lets see what she can actually do with it.

    I have to give it to Adam that he makes his contestants better.

    I really like Ashley Morgan I think is the name. Her voice is just really smooth and she can get insane with her note-hitting.

    She is really good but I would like her chances better if she was on Adam's team.

    ^^I agree completely. Sometimes I think he's a complete idiot. And then the other half of me realizes he does that to KEEP two artists in the game. He knew Lindsey was gonna get stolen so in order to keep them both he picked Paul. I honestly believe that because there is no way on God's green earth that Paul won that battle.
