I'll officially join in the AI discussions once they get to Hollywood. I can't stand these early shows. It's like a singing Jerry Springer - people so desperate to get their 2 minutes of fame that they are willing to make fools of themselves in front of (potentially) millions of people.
But, I did see an article where they said they would be focussing more on the contestants this year than the celebrity coaches who are there to pitch their latest project. Gee, takes a rocket scientist, huh?
That's the way it should
have been the whole time! Well, at least they are seeing the error of their ways from last year. They better make it good this year - with the writer's strike they could tap into a whole new audience who actually hasn't seen it before.
