A reality show with a HUGE problematic Voting system
25 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think all of the reality shows that involve voting by the viewers have a huge problem on their voting. Older and matured viewers rarely vote with passion unless when the competitors/participants are from their towns, cities, counties or states. It's so obvious and so predictable that only teenagers or even kids or younger people in their first two years of college, who are always holding smart phones endlessly texting will vote with blind passion. So when a reality show such as 'The Voice' and 'American Idol' require their viewers to vote for the person who like most, these overly enthusiastic texting young generation would vote like there's no tomorrow. They won't give a damn to a charge of every call they placed.

Then again, there's another unrealistic voting problem we have to put into consideration: Female teenagers would vote crazily when there's a handsome young guy with pretty face among the competitors. The would become so crazy, their voting fingers would have their own will and mind to keep voting for that guy, their dream lover, no matter what; even there's another competitor whose singing is much much better than that young dude, the teen-aged young female viewers will not vote for him, worst yet, the other better and more talented singer is a female, a similar gender like them feminine. They will reject her and hate her if she is too good, because she maybe endanger their young dude's ranking. (Watch this 2015 season, you would know what I mean here.) Unless, just unless, there's no likable and lovable young stud in that season, these young voting viewers might become a bit fair, voting a prettier one of the same gender. Usually, older guys or more matured female competitors would not get too many votes from those young viewers. These outcomes, well, even you think with you toes, will be so easily understood.

'The Voice' got another huge problem, i.e., the so-called four 'Coaches/Judges'. Since every coach would have several competitors they choose during the blind pick, whenever the person they coached singing, they would try every way to complement him or her, while the other three opponent coaches will render nothing negative to the other three coaches team members. Why they would have enemies in the same business? Praise other opponents means other opponent coaches will praise your team members. So these 4 guys always doing the 'scratching other three coaches' backs, praising their singers doing a great job'. This you scratch my back and I will scratch you back was an often disgusting and pretentious bullshitting scene that we kept seeing again and again.

Therefore, the 4 coaches/Judges system of 'The Voice' is not as good and fair as 'American Idol'. The latter show got 3 real judges who always comments with their true feeling whenever the competitor finished singing, they really judged and taught some important and usable suggestions to the participants and improve them in the next round. But not these 4 coaches of The Voice, most of the time, they were just bullshitting to each other, complemented among them.

The other big problem of 'The Voice', is coming from one of the coaches, Adam Levine. This guy always tried to say something deep, trying so hard to show his depth in everything, but often and always spoke something that even he himself could not comprehend. We often saw this guy just kept talking, talking and couldn't stop, like a dog chasing its own tail, circling around non-stop, yet most of what he said would be just gibberish beating-about-the-bush crappy nothingness. His other serious problem is his constant abusing insults to the other guy, Blake Shelton, a weird way to show his compadre brotherhood to that poor guy.

But other than the above-mentioned problems of 'The Voice', I have to say that this singing competition is way better than 'American Idol'. If compare these two singing competition reality shows, the talent quality and standard of The Voice is much much better and higher than 'American Idol'. When viewing these two singing programs in a row, you'd easily know American Idol's singers are not good enough, especially this 2015 season, they were just terrible and too untalented.
