If you know that I haven't watched "American Idol" since the second season, you can be damn certain that I haven't watched a single episode of "The Voice," NBC's competing find-a-new-singer reality show with celebrity musician judges such as Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. While it's great to look up images of Levine in the buff (yes, I like his body if not his music), I doubt that the show is as compelling as many of its fans make it out to be. How different can these singing shows be? This season for "The Voice" has been more headline grabbing than in the past, what with Aguilera returning to the show after a weight-loss hiatus and with the appearance of "The Big Bang Theory" Kaley Cuoco's little sister competing, but I hadn't known who Cassadee Pope
was until I saw her promoting her new country music CD at Target. She's a cute brunette who was the winner of season three and apparently was a pop singer for some band called Hello Monday prior to going out for a solo gig here. Not sure if it's all that fair to allow those who've already had recording contracts to win a new career. Isn't that something that you have to screw a music executive to do?
