The Voice: May 8th Audience Experience

I just wanted to share some impressions of the Voice taping this past Monday. (May 8th) I won’t go into too much detail on how to sign up for tickets with 1iota.com because I have blogged about that process before. However, Monday things went super smoothly, even though I had general admission and not priority I did end up in the pit. I wanted to be on Blake side of the pit, like I was previously. However, I ended up on Adam’s side of the pit, which gave me an excellent view of all the coaches including Gwen. (by the time, we got up in line, the Blake side of the pit was full)

When the coaches first came out, I think it Gwen, Adam, and Alicia. The first time I saw Blake I saw peaking around Gwen’s chair kind of the way he does on the Voice Snapchat videos (kind of mischievous and cute) when Gwen was seated. Then he went on stage and performed “Every time I Hear That Song”. This was before the live portion of the show started filming.

On Twitter, I read all these rave reviews of the stage set for that song. I found that set, with the “steel” red columns frustrating. I think Blake did too. I think Blake likes to connect with the audience while performing and literally make eye contact. (I noticed this at the IHeartRadio.com concert and I’m sure those who have seen him perform on up close in concert get that feeling too) I think he’s all about the singing along, and the eye contact and interaction with the audience. Well, directly in front of him during that performance where the coaches (and there are seats behind the coaches) and to the severe left and right of the stage were the two pits. (Each divided by a runaway) So there are four sections total to the pit part of the audience. I couldn’t see him perform with the band, unless he took a step back behind the column while playing his guitar. And I think he felt the same way, I noticed he kept stepping back and turning his head to the side of the pit to step back from the columns so he could see us and we could see him. I know he did this at least 2-4 times during the song. So that was frustrating.

But when he took a step back and looked into our side of the pit, he made eye contact with us. (I saw it on the youtube version of the performance, he keeps turning his head quickly to the side.) Well, as the Voice MC said, the people in the audience at the Voice aren’t there to “watch the show” they are there to be part of the live show. They announced after the first version of that song that they would be taping it again. So, in between, Blake went to the columns and was leaning on them in a mocking male model pose.

NBC The Voice Season 12 Carson Daly, Coaches Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Interview. Sneak Peek of The Voice Season 12 Blind Auditions. 

Written by IG @gwenandblake Co-Admin T

NBC The Voice Season 12 will be premiering February 27th and the countdown begins, because it will be the most EPIC season ever! Not only is Gwen Stefani back as a coach…but we can’t wait to see her go head to head against her Boo, Blake Shelton…which Adam Levine calls “fights with cupcakes and pillows.” Carson Daly says that Gwen and Blakes relationship plays out in the show and it’s not something that is “taboo.” How sweet!

It’s going to be exciting to see the amazing dynamic between all 4 coaches and having 2 female coaches brings a sense of “girl power,” where Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani have each other’s backs, even if they are trying to get the same contestant. Along with the newfound “girl power,” (that was also there in season 11 when Miley Cyrus was a coach) there is a sense of nurturing when it comes to the contestants and on set. Being moms, it brings a different vibe than the Blake and Adam antics! There’s definitely a lot of LOVE from the coaches, which is why the tag line this season is “FEEL THE LOVE.” It’s perfect and we can’t wait!

Even though the coaches all love each other, they’re in a competition to find a contestant and win the show! Blake says he will help Adam if there was a Skaa singer that would be a contestant that Gwen would most likely get, but it’s about winning at the end of the day. However, the coaches have fun on set and love being a part of The Voice. All the coaches said that they want to help these contestants by sharing their gifts as well as their knowledge of music and in turn, those contestants inspire them!

Each of the interviews mainly talk about how the show is “real” and that it’s not scripted, which makes viewers at home relate to the show even more! Watch the interviews with Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, Carson Daly and Gwen Stefani. There is also another video that gives you a sneak peek into the blind auditions. Don’t worry if you don’t hear anything in the first video. There isn’t any sound because the contestants cannot be heard yet, but there is some cheering that goes on when the coaches greet each other before sitting in their chairs. Have a look below! These videos were posted earlier tonight February 2nd 2017.

The 2 videos below are from Entertainment Tonight and posted a couple of days ago, January 31st 2017

Remember when Jimmy Fallon made Blake Shelton eat sushi for HIS very first time? Well…it was Blake’s turn to teach Jimmy how to do something for HIS first time and that was to show Jimmy how to properly milk a cow (it’s all about technique)! Oreo is the name of the cow in the video and it’s hilarious to see Jimmy ditch his “city guy suit” in what he thinks is “farm attire!” Watch below and enjoy!
