The quality of the talent on the show has declined from last season. Alicia Keys has made some questionable decisions in her talent selections and being a guide competitor in making good song choice advice for her team. The show seems to being going in the wrong direction and mirrors declining way of American Idol'… that being The Voice is becoming too much about the judges

IS THE VOICE LOSING THE PLOT?

It's amazing how much The Voice has changed this season. The quality of talent is much less than last season. The direction of the show seems to spend too much time on the judges which was the beginning of the downfall of American Idol. Alicia Keys has made some questionable decisions in her handling of her teams.

The Voice remains interesting but get real why are the producers spending so much camera time on the coaches. It seems that the producer's priority is to play up the romance of Blake Shelton and fellow judge mentor Gwen Stefani…. ENOUGH ALREADY!

Yea, yea... sure, sure they're in love BUT what about the talent. The Voice being the successor of American Idol as the vocal talent show of choice is falling into the trap of selling the Shelton, Stefani love affair at the expense of the talent.

Alicia Keys has made some questionable talent decisions. It is mystifying that she failed to mentor the now eliminated Autum Turner who in our opinion had the best voice in the blind auditions. At that time Turner sang Donna Summer's ''Last Dance' which was perfect for her voice. From that point the song choices for her range come into question.

During the Battle Round Keys chose the song "Killing Me Softly with His Song" which did not compliment Turner's voice. Keys has a tendency to favor a competitor's charisma and performance and not making good song choice decisions based popularity.

One of the criteria in success is choosing songs that the viewing public can identify with and in many cases the talent chooses songs for the wrong reasons such as a song someone they love liked or is religious theme.

We view the Battle Round as a round of the culling of the crew. At this point a judge has the power to match singers where they have their mind made up and they know ahead of time their decision. One talent is more superior OR the song choice is not complimentary for one of the voices.

Turner was saved by Adam Levine. At this point Levine failed to advise her not to sing her song choice of Aretha Franklin's 'Respect.' During her performance of that song she was singing at the top of her range whereas 'Last Dance' has more body and more substance of her lower range which was her strength.

There are times when one could have the feeling that a talent is set up to fail. The possibility exists when a judge and the talent's personalities clash. Sometimes a talent has too much to say is deemed uncoachable. Other times it could be a personality problem that goes on behind the scenes. The bottom line is Turner's departure is puzzling.

At the same time Shelton has a chance to demonstrate his coaching skills. Being a proven success in coaching both youth and country artists 15 year-old Aliyah Moulden will be a major test.

This week Moulden will face off against 16-year-old Caroline Sky a two chair turnaround. The question is who will make the best song choice that will compliment their voice.

17-year-old rocker Josh West is the best at making great song choices that fit his voice and that the public can identify with. His talent should take him to the final four and he has a good chance to win it since the publics vote will be the major factor. He has the look and the talent to go far, with or without The Voice (following his exposure).

I can hear ringing in my ear former American Idol judge Simon Cowell saying it's about making the right song choice. Stay tuned…
