Week of Dec. 1-7: ‘The X Factor’ vs. ‘The Voice’

Week of Dec. 1-7: ‘The X Factor’ vs. ‘The Voice’ – Data Desk – Los Angeles Times.

Here’s a FUN “cast your vote” X Factor vs. The Voice contest you can lend your expertise to. It comes courtesy of the Data Desk of the Los Angeles Times, no sloucher indeed.

Click on the link above. Then, roll over the photos below and watch the performances for each of the contestants (what kind of name is “Cowell & Lovato argue over Emblem 3”). Then explain your vote in the comments section and you could end up featured.

I know some of you will be “The Voice” fans and some of you might have found this by googling X Factor and be X Factor fans, but there is no real winner unless we all play fair, so don’t be catty or bitchy (okay, you can be a little bitchy, but no hair pulling).

My Reasons for Watching “The Voice” – Reality Show #1

It’s not my hate for Simon Cowell (X Factor) or the fact that I play the office pool during American Idol (but don’t watch the show).

I was drawn to The Voice from the beginning probably due to my eclectic choice in music and my love for Maroon 5. I DON’T LISTEN to Britney Spears and I couldn’t tell you the name of a song by Demi Lovato.

I predicted that Javier Colon would win Season 1 of The Voice (and he did) and I’m predicting that Bryan Keith will win Season 3. I even tweeted Adam Levine and told him so.

I enjoy the chemistry between the judges on The Voice. I like hearing that Blake Shelton took Dia Frampton from Season 1 on tour with him and that Javier Colon was in South America recently with Maroon 5.

You don’t hear about those things coming out of the X Factor or American Idol camps. Mainly because the “star” judges on those panels are more interested in their 8-figure salaries than they are in the talent.

The Voice has pioneered a new way of auditioning in case you haven’t caught the show. The judges sit with their backs to the stage and all they hear is the … Voice. On Tuesday night a young man sang La Bamba entirely in Spanish and Blake Shelton was so excited he could hardly wait to hit his buzzer. Blake and CeeLo Green were fighting to be his coach. That’s not something you’ll see on X Factor or American Idol.

The Voice is still in the audition stages. The judges will have teams made up of 16 members this season. You can catch it on NBC Television or go here:
