In some ways, there is a new episode of “The Voice” airing on NBC Tuesday night. The problem is that unless you really love the show, there is not much of a reason to watch it.
This episode is something that the show and, in turn, the network have put out in recent years for the purpose of helping people who may have missed an episode or two catch up before the Battle Rounds. They’ll highlight some of the more notable contestants, give you some funny footage of the coaches that you have not seen before, and then also preview more of what is coming up in the next phase of the competition.
Of course, the question we have long wondered is this: Why not just air another episode of Blind Auditions in this spot, and un-montage a number of people who were montaged during the five episodes? We have a feeling that the simple answer is this: Many of the montage acts may not have been that impressive, and the show probably does not want to face more comments akin to “your talent pool stinks this year,” which they happen to be getting at the moment anyway. We understand that sometimes, auditions where only one coach turns around are not that exciting.
Here is what we think is the optimal solution to this problem of some contestants not getting equal love on the show: Put all the blind auditions in full on YouTube with advertising. That way, you are at least ensuring that diehard fans have a chance to see all of the people auditioning in full.
