Ah well, Harrison seems like a nice kid, so good on him. His new single was terrible, though.

 

I still think Steve and Luke will have the most/only success post-show, with the mum/nana crowd. Then again, whatever happend to Carl Riseley?

Well that was boring. Although Harrison winning was a foregone conclusion, I still tuned in eagerly to watch the finale. However, about a third of the way through a tedious group performance of "You're the Voice", it dawned on me that 120 minutes of this was about 110 minutes too many. I watched off and on while going in and out of the room, and couldn't even be bothered to come back into the room when I heard them about to announce the winner. Next year, perhaps they need some way of making the voice entrants hidden from the itunes top 100 list, at least for the finale, if they want any kind of suspense whatsoever. They might as well have walked through the streets bellowing that Harrison had won while clanging a bell.

 

Ricky and Luke's duet performance was relatively decent. Joel and Danny's was kind of embarassing--my god, Joel's voice is as flat as a tack, and as a performer he's as wooden as shit. This shows been going on so long, I forgot how ridiculous it was to have a half of Good Charlotte on as some kind of aspirational mentor...incredibly, he'd still be my 2nd choice amongst some slim pickings.

 

Judging by that video package of Danny and Joel together, Joel doesn't seem too concerned about distancing himself from the whole hotel drugs scandal. Hanging up a dream catcher, having an overly-intellectual conversation about nothing, before pretending to nod off in the middle of a conversation, all while the visual effect of a white haze rises from the bottom of the screen? You forgot the hystertical laughing and eating a whole tub of dip with your index finger.

Nor should he. I don't even like weed personally and I don't care much for Joel Madden, so I have no dog in this fight, but the media carrying on as if anyone actually cares about pot in the year 2012 (edit: oh hah, 2013; but I swear, I'm not a stoner!) is idiotic. I have so many more friends who smoke weed than smoke cigarettes these days. It's so commonplace. It's so harmless. Even the cops don't care about 5 grams. I guess this might affect his relations with Channel Nein, but he's the Logie-winning favorite of the show, so I can't see them firing him. It won't affect his popularity or fanbase one bit. 

 

I'm also pretty surprised that a casino hotel cared, either. There must be more to this story, because Star City hosts plenty of celebrities and parties and surely turns a blind eye to drugs all the time. 

 

Anyway, to bring this back more on topic, yes, Joel is a fairly shitty singer and it's kind of silly that most of the contestants are better than him. But at the same time, I doubt the judges really do that much vocal coaching, anyway.

Yeah, nobody cared about pot last year. Obviously this year it's a different matter. ;) 

 

(Sorry, couldn't resist).

Was Ricky lip synching in that last song or was there something off with the audio?  It seemed really weird to me and not what lip synching usually looks like to me.

To me it looked like something was up wth the audio, like the picture was about 1/2 a second behind the audio. Cause even if he was miming, surely he is not that bad at miming.

Yeah that's what I thought too, then I heard people up in arms over him lip synching.
