To enjoy "The Voice" and think its now as bad as people say?

I've actually been laughed at by people for saying that I enjoy this programme but I don't think its as bad as some people are saying. I think the standard of singing on its very good and there are no "joke" contestants, the song choices on it are a lot better than the typical karaoke fare you get on X Factor or Britain's Got Talent and the judges are actually qualified to judge people.

I feel like I am the only person in the UK still watching though. AIBU to think its not that bad? More importantly does anyone actually agree with me?........

dd's just started watching this and likes it, can see me joining her, loads better than the x factor.

It's my guilty secret.Didn't really get into it last year but love it now and even DH happily sits through it ,and he generally hates X and BGT types of programme.
Like so much the relatively brief intro to each singer ,and focus on them just singing.And inspired idea that judges just listen and not swayed by appearances and elaborate styling.And Will.i.am just makes me smile!

Can't stand any of these programmes that loosely associate themselves with a talent competition. Hark at me grin. I suppose its ok if you think its entertaining. I'd rather listen to the real thing (not the band) but people who can really do the business.

I can't understand why so many people go on these shows and say "Its something I've always wanted to do" When they are about 18.
Most people who really want to do it work hard, probably go to college, practice for fucking hours etc.

We watched BGT tonight and I've reminded myself how much I hate Simon Cowell. He's Mr Smug from Smugsville. I was cringing at hooch David Walliams was fawning all over him. It's soooooo fake and shit.

The Voice is so much better. It's worth watching just for for will.i.would. Jessie needs to dial it down.

Sorry, I've tried to like it but after watching the US version, the UK one just doesn't measure up. sad

Love it. Fav so far is Leah mcfall from last week. Hate bgt and X factor. Glad others like will I am!! Thought it was just my guilty secret.

Bit embarrassed that I didn't realise he was American thought! Blame the fact that so many Brits speak with fake American accents....ok, I'm just stupid.

Yabu, I would like it except the egotistical judges make me want to vomit, I just can't watch it due to them and all their high drama. Sorry!

wil.i.am - love the programme just for him, The man is totally hot.

I am auditioning to go on it for next year so all I feel is nerves and a bit sick when I watch it!
Will I am is gorgeous too (must try to push that out of my mind if I want to get anywhere near getting through)
Jessie is a very nice girl - I met her last year at a festival ..she seemed so down to earth and normal but on the show she is really taking over. Maybe he feels she has a lot to prove being te only woman on the panel?

I irrationally hate Will-I-am-an-arsehole. He is the most annoying person in the universe.

I actually have to mute it when he attempts to talk about 'Dope ' hmm
