  1. I’ve watched the last couple of seasons of The Voice and IMO, this season is the best for seven so far. It seems they’ve heard the feedback, reduced the backstories or at least made them crisper, reduced the needless banter between the judges (still a little too much for my liking) and the quality of the performers this year is excellent (we rarely see a no chair turn which I’m personally fine with). I am also enjoying when the judges occasionally get up and sing with the contestant.

  2. I love the picture on this article. That duet gives me goosebumps! Guy Sebastian is such a great vocalist in our country. And I hope that contestant goes a long way in this competition.

  3. Just a mildly interesting thing.

    That was the highest rated ep of Traitors excluding the episode that aired on Melb Cup day last year.

    I know low bar, but still hopeful that it gets an Season 3.
