The Voice examined in LAT

TODAY’S READING ASSIGNMENT: A piece by Randall Roberts in this morning’s L.A. Times Calendar section examines the possible reasons behind the runaway success of The Voice. The NBC series, hosted by Carson Daly, “feels more like a musical game show than a talent show, and touches on the collaborative aspect of the music creation process,” Roberts writes. “And there are worse things than watching Cee Lo Green, or Christina Aguilera, in the studio with a young, gravel-voiced novice trying to figure out a way to turn words on a page into a hit song… Green looks like King Henry VIII perched up there on his throne. In the first two episodes, he wore the same punk rock Misfits T-shirt, and smiled his broad smile as he tried to convince a singer to choose him as coach. What he said next captures the potential in front of The Voice: ‘You're like myself: an exception to the rule.’” (5/10a)
