Talent-wise, I think this is one of the strongest stable of contestants "The Voice" or any American singing show has ever produced. They are stylistically diverse, devoutly professional (check out my post on "The Voice" singers before they were famous) and altogether lovable. I'd like to see every one of these eight singers make an album. They just seem genuine in a way I didn't always feel with contestants from previous seasons.

And Then There Were 10

Imagine an entire shelf of wooden Nutcracker dolls. After everyone goes to sleep, the little automaton dolls awake and sing a robotic song about having feelings, hopping up and down on their little wooden legs. That's the best description I can think of for the cast singalong kicking off Monday night's episode of "The Voice. It was an amplified disaster.

They've been tested through fire, and on Monday night's episode of "The Voice," most of the contestants delivered the goods live. For many singers, this was their Olympus -- and America was treated to the best display of controlled talent and vocal precision that we've seen this year.

Finally, The End Of The Battle Rounds

Aren't you tired of the Battle Rounds? I was so sick of them that I fell asleep tonight before they started. Don't forget some of the songs we've had to hear battled (Cee-Lo, you're still on probation for making us sit through"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"). There's only so many spinning cameras, diva-on-diva vocal runs and Cher I can realistically take.
