Spoiler Alert! THE VOICE Blind Auditions Night Four Recap 9/30; Full Results!Spoiler Alert! THE VOICE Blind Auditions Night Four Recap 9/30; Full Results!
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 30, 2014

Three down, two to go. There were only two Blind Auditions left coming into tonight, and the four VOICE teams were aleady starting to take shape, a fact that the coaches remind us of multiple times throughout the broadcast. Now that each coach has a substantial stable of singers, they are starting to be a bit pickier on who gets them to hit their buttons. Though I believe that this was hands down (pun intended?) the best Blind Audition of the season, there were still some questionable decisions of the chair-turning variety. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Tony Winner Jennifer Holliday Leads Dazzling BROADWAY UNDER THE STARS ConcertBWW Reviews: Tony Winner Jennifer Holliday Leads Dazzling BROADWAY UNDER THE STARS Concert
by Michael L. Quintos - Aug 22, 2014

She is, to put it mildly, still one of the world's most treasured, gifted musical voices. Even more awesome? Holliday served as the finale headliner that capped off an impressive line-up of Broadway stars that included Erich Bergen, Rogelio Douglas, Jr., Danny Gurwin, and Tony nominee Chad Kimball. And the highly entertaining evening---a pleasant mixture of amusing anecdotes and enthralling showtune performances---was hosted by Holliday's Tony nominated DREAMGIRLS co-star, Obba Babatunde.
