It's pretty good! Pretty much what I was expecting from him, tbh. Meanwhile, Assadee continues her transformation into some sort of country/pop-punk singer. Her failure will be delicious

I wish he had won! Don't love the song but love the way he sounds.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:09 am (UTC)
He really should've won, tbh. If the show hadn't been so rigged in Assadee's favor, I think he would have.

idk a thing about this show, but my grandma told me my oldest cousin is auditioning for it or something. 0o If he gets on, I might have to pay attention?

Hahaha it's pretty good! Last season was rigged for the chick who won but there was some really good talent that showed up, like Terry.

Plus they're trying out new judges, so it'll probably be amusing one way or another :D
poisoncity 22nd-Feb-2013 03:14 am (UTC)
Hmm~

I shall take a look!

HAY GURL

OH HAY. waiting for all our other terry friends/fellow assadee haters to get in this post tbh
hypnology 22nd-Feb-2013 04:10 am (UTC)
I am so attracted to him.
browneyedguuurl 22nd-Feb-2013 03:10 am (UTC)
I like it. I can't believe he didn't win. Like, WTF?!
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:12 am (UTC)
It was seriously fucked up. I can't wait for Assadee's album to tank like the other two winners so The Voice will feel like shit for rigging it in her favor in hope of success.
browneyedguuurl 22nd-Feb-2013 03:16 am (UTC)
I actually stopped watching the show after S1. I just didn't feel any type of connection to the singers like I did in S1 with Javier, Bev and Vicci. But still, I heard some of his stuff and thought he was incredible.
diggingtrouble 22nd-Feb-2013 03:13 am (UTC)
i don't think i'll ever get over the fact that he lost to assadee i'm STILL pissed
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:19 am (UTC)
Let us all mourn the fact that this is the Screeching Mountain Goat who stole victory from the grips of the cutest Hobbit ever.



I know you all missed her witch nose and warbling through Avril Songs as much as I did.
thekspot 22nd-Feb-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
wow you are such a hater
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:52 am (UTC)
Yup. Proud to be one.
rebeljean 22nd-Feb-2013 04:43 am (UTC)
ikr.
unique_lilpixie 22nd-Feb-2013 03:20 am (UTC)
He has such a lovely voice. I hope he is successful.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:24 am (UTC)
Me too! I don't think he'll have massive success (but tbh I don't think Assadee will either) but I could see him doing relatively well on the Rock/Alternative charts.
x0sweetbliss 22nd-Feb-2013 03:22 am (UTC)
There was some guy in one of the bars on school's campus the other week who is apparently going to be on this next season. He seemed like a complete douchebag so I'm interested to see if he really is going to be on it.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:25 am (UTC)
I know someone who was supposed to audition but I think he got sick and ended up not being able to do it.

One of the kind of annoying things about The Voice is that since the live rounds start so comparatively late, it feels like you have to last longer with total assholes than on other singing shows.
holdmedownxx 22nd-Feb-2013 03:51 am (UTC)
i'm super excited for this next season tbh
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 03:52 am (UTC)
Me too! I'm really stoked to see how Usher and Shakira blend in with Adam and Blake.
aaameeting 22nd-Feb-2013 05:44 am (UTC)
I saw previews. No chemistry. Hella awkward.
frankthesheep 22nd-Feb-2013 11:07 am (UTC)
Same here. I think blake and usher would get on well. Usher seems a bit like Adam.
carol_rio 22nd-Feb-2013 03:53 am (UTC)
He was my favorite, but I knew the girl would win. I didn't even watch the last episode.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 04:00 am (UTC)
Hahaha the last episode was a mess, tbh. Too many performances from people (and Assadee was in way too many compared to Nicholas and Terry), they rushed Nicholas off really quickly and then rushed the whole ending.

And there was no fun knowing that she was going to win anyway.
hypnology 22nd-Feb-2013 04:03 am (UTC)
It took me about a minute to get into the song but I like it and I love his voice.


I actually heard assadee on the radio the other day. I changed the station.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
Lol you made the right choice. I know that for some reason, her version of "Over" is still getting played. Idek why though.
hypnology 22nd-Feb-2013 04:12 am (UTC)
I don't get why it is either. I guess to help with her country transition since she signed to Republic Nashville.
Going country is what you do when you fail as a popstar, which I guess I'm happy she failed at pop star and bandstar lol.
baptismtonight 22nd-Feb-2013 04:33 am (UTC)
i find OPs hatred of her hilarious, and I'm glad someone is speaking the truth about the completely ridiculous pimping/rigging for her this season. I wanted Amanda, Nicholas, or Terry to win and I cannot (and do not/will not) accept how they turned shit around so they could get her the win because I guess they think she's the most likely to succeed...Lame
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 04:41 am (UTC)
Hahahah thank you bb! I'm glad to know that my efforts to spread the truth about Assadee are appreciated. Tbh I've disliked her since Hey Monday appeared on the scene but the ridiculous rigging for her on The Voice was disgusting. They didn't need to change so many rules in order to basically hand her the win (because lbr, that "every top 10 itunes song will have it's votes counted 10x!" rule made it impossible for anyone else to win).

I'm doubting that she'll have that much success on mainstream charts because she's not Taylor Swift who's the other "country" female singer and she's just not actually all that compelling both vocally and personality wise to get much non-pre-existing fanbase attention. Plus, as soon as the new season of The Voice rolls around next month, attention will go to someone else like it did for the other two winners.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 04:56 am (UTC)
She's good! Definitely better than Assadee is lol. She should've at least gotten in.
xtinaiero 22nd-Feb-2013 06:51 am (UTC)
the voice is as rigged as any of the singing shows. my friend and i auditioned and we didn't make it. only 5 people the whole day made it to the next round, where they were then cut. no one made it from san fran last season out of the thousands who auditioned.
rebeljean 22nd-Feb-2013 04:45 am (UTC)
I still don't get the hate for her... I find Hey Monday's music to be extremely catchy. NHF country though.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 04:55 am (UTC)
As her ~big hater, I can admit that some of Hey Monday's stuff actually wasn't that bad. I liked "Homecoming" and a good portion of the music on Beneath It All. If she wasn't the singer, I probably would've loved HM for being a pretty generic but passable pop-rock band. Her voice was, to me, more tolerable in their music too as she sang more in her range. The issue that I really found on both her solo EP and her Voice songs was that she tries to hit both high and low notes that just don't come naturally to her--her high notes get screechy and her low notes are barely audible--and it makes her kind of hard to listen to. She's just not a belter like Hayley Williams is and if she stopped trying to be, I think she'd be more musically tolerable. /realistic thoughts lol.

On the other hand, I've always found her personality to be really fake, which actually forms a bigger portion of my dislike for her than her singing. Oh, and she's completely inable to write songs. Her lyrics are Taylor Swift levels of atrocious.

*Also, I am so totally here for your icon. Green Day is amazing.

rebeljean 22nd-Feb-2013 04:58 am (UTC)
Fair enough but I don't see how that's any cause to call her Assadee all the time.
hypnology 22nd-Feb-2013 02:12 pm (UTC)
I liked Hey Monday. Homecoming is a top song for me to run to. I don't like her solo because she can't hit her notes well. In HM she wasn't going all fancy on the notes and you didn't notice she sounded like a goat straining for air.
arisingphoenix 22nd-Feb-2013 05:05 am (UTC)
LMAO assadee. It makes lol that she's going country. Terry this is almost better than I was expecting from you.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 05:25 am (UTC)
lol hey girl I was wondering if you'd show up :D

Lol she's clearly trying to bank her success on the fact that "Over" got so big. It's funny in that I can't wait to see it not work.
arisingphoenix 22nd-Feb-2013 05:33 am (UTC)
HEEEYY. I will always be beckoned to the voice posts lol

I cannot, I'm so enraged she's technically associated with Taylors label cuz they will push the fuck out of her. I am happy to know that she's a bitter bitch about having to go country and that Taylor is not here for her attempting pop until she does it first. ok so I'm excited cuz I have connections and can know things but not cuz i will vomit if she's ends up being the most successful just cuz country fans are insane.

I also will support anyone who isn't her from that season lol. haters gonna hate and I'm gonna hate
xgirldc 22nd-Feb-2013 05:29 am (UTC)
i didn't love him on the show necessarily, but the afterparty was at my venue and i've worked / attended them all. he was running around, best attitude, having so much fun and performing his ass off the entire night. i believe he genuinely loves what he does and i like him so much at this point. i hope he is successful.
tellmeimawreck 22nd-Feb-2013 05:41 am (UTC)
Aww that's awesome! He really does seem like a totally fun and easy-going guy.
