The Voice Recap: Send in the…Clowns?
Menacing mimes. Male strippers. Cee Lo Green in a slinky red jumpsuit with deep-plunging, lace-up neckline and a delicate ladywig. Carson Daly turning superlatives into bowls of lukewarm mush. And enough bum notes to recreate an authentic Ashlee Simpson recording-studio session. Those were just a few of the disconcerting distractions on the menu for the first live-performance round of The Voice‘s second season.

Maybe my expectations were too high going in. And to that end, maybe it’s not fair to make any long-lasting judgments about the season when there are a whopping 24 singers still alive and well and

The Voice Recap: Cat, a Rising Star?

The Voice Recap: Cat, a Rising Star?
Reality singing competitions live or die by the strength of their contestants, but it doesn’t hurt to have other secret weapons — especially when you’ve got a two-hour telecast to fill. This week’s installment of The Voice certainly proved the value of a loaded arsenal — employing a fluffy white cat, some creative editing, subtle/possibly nonexistent nods to American Idol‘s Haley Reinhart, several hilariously unrehearsed outbursts, a wrestling match pitting Christina Aguilera’s breasts against the exhausted black Lycra of her scoop-neck top (spoiler alert: the blouse is so going to lose), and even a crushing blow to gossip monster Perez Hilton.

'The Voice': Jordis Unga from 'Rock Star: Inxs' gets another chance at fame

If you watched "The Voice" tonight, you may have recognized rocker Jordis Unga from another music competition show, "Rock Star: Inxs," in which the band sought their new lead singer. Unga. The 29-year-old singer appeared on the show in 2005. Like "The Voice," it was produced by Mark Burnett productions.

Unga sang "Maybe I'm Amazed," and during her song, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Cee-Lo turned their chairs around. While her dad danced backstage, Unga burst into tears at the end of her song, her hands shaking as she introduced herself to the judges.

Then, the judges introduced themselves to her. "I am the a-hole who didn't pick you," Adam Levine admitted.

Aguilera says, "I loved what I heard. It's definitely stiffer competition this year... I heard that soulful little ad-lib in the low end and I love, love, loved it." She also noted that she's got more time and attention to offer her contestants,

Bloc Party's Frontman Is Afraid He's Been Fired

Three years since their last effort, Bloc Party is back in the studio working on a new album. But their frontman, Kele Okereke, couldn't tell you how it's coming. He's too busy wondering whether he's been fired.

Okereke told NME he hopes he "hasn't been fired" after catching his band together without him in New York:

I was actually having lunch about three weeks ago, just here on 8th Avenue and I saw somebody walk past and I recognised the haircut. It was Russell. I was like, 'Hey!' but he didn't see me and I followed him around the corner and then I saw Matt, Gordon and Russell all standing outside this rehearsal space. They all went inside.

Perhaps the band hasn't gotten over Okereke leaving them to pursue his solo career. He released his first album, Boxer, under the name Kele in June of 2010, to generally positive reviews.

Burnett: Nets must accept new media

Burnett: Nets must accept new media
If network television is to survive, it has to embrace the power of the Internet and redefine its traditional meaning of primetime, producer Mark Burnett said Wednesday. His comments came during an industry forum luncheon at the Museum of Television & Radio in Beverly Hills where the producer of such reality series as Survivor, The Apprentice and Rock Star: INXS lauded the creative and financial opportunities to be found throughout the online world. "The beautiful thing about the Internet is it's on-demand and naturally archived and has people forging communities," Burnett said. Adding that broadband in the office has made 9-to-5 the new television primetime, he continued, "I don't think anyone is bold enough to just do TV or the Internet ... but the Internet is clearly surpassing any network, and the future has to be the combination of the two."
