Dancing makes me so happy..and so does Holly Henry's voice.

I love this song.

I love this dance!! I love the choreography!

Enjoy and I dare you not to smile.

And then this group dance.  'What the fox says."

What great choreography.
This song is a viral hit.  It's really dumb.
But this dance was too good not to share.
I predict this is the new party 'thriller' dance.

It scored three 10's.


And since I have a blog I get to share my opinion on the Voice and someone will read it.

Holly Henry was eliminated.

Here is my beef.  Holly has a unique and quiet voice.  Like James Taylor she does not sing big loud shrill ballads.  Unfortunately that is the kind of voice The Voice wants.

Her voice my not be super loud and forceful...but it is beautiful and lyrical and soulful.

Perhaps they need to change the name of the show to The Loudest Voice.  The fellow who beat her was gooney and I didn't like his voice or his style at all.  I have read that the judges did not know when they filmed this portion that Holly would be the definite front runner in itunes sales....which she is.

Like I said.  There are different kinds of voices and I liked hers the best.

So there.

Not watching the show anymore.


Now go be happy and watch those dances!

Lots of love....and opinions.

    I was very disappointed to see Holly go. Everyone in my house loved her.

  2. Oh, I love that you hold strong opinions, Donna. I did not watch last night's show, but I watched the one where Holly was eliminated. The telling critique, I think, was that they did not see her making progress...that she was slipping rather than growing. I absolutely loved Holly's audition...that is what got us all hooked on the show...but I understood why she didn't make the cut in her last performance.

    I was glad to hear that another unique, less "boom" female vocalist did win last night (Bren gave me the scoop.) I like those singers, too.


  3. The link didn't work over here for Holly, so I went to you tube and watched a few other clips. I was able to see her audition when I was in the States. I love her voice and I'm sorry she's gone.

    OK, I had never heard "What the Fox Says" before. I guess there are advantages of living far away :-) haha

    But you were 100% right - that first dance number had me grinning and toe-tapping!

    thanks Donna !

    1. Susan! "What does the fox say" is by Ylvis --- and originates and was recorded IN NORWAY!!! So you're closer!!!!

    2. see how out of touch I am? I didn't know :-)

    Kris bought the "Fox song" for Sophia on i-tunes the other night. I gave him a dirty look. Sophia loves the song and I do enjoy watching her make up dances to it. : )

  5. Sarah! Show her this dance!! She will love it! Unless you think it's too racy for her!

      I plan on showing her the video tonight. : P I know she'll love it!
      The fox song and Gangnam style......go in the same category! ha!ha!

  6. maybe Holly shouldn't have chose a song that ended with the lyric "I don't belong here"

    1. My husband and I just looked at each other when she sang that last line - whoops.

    2. She released it last night on Twitter (in her own style) ANC its fantastic. Those words are prophetic indeed.

    3. Is it possible she'll be more successful away from The Voice?

      I have never been able to watch it except for a random night here or there while visiting at home, but my brother and sister in law are faithful viewers, and tell me that they've not heard of people having much success once they win the competition. Is that the case?

    Oh Donna of the strong opinions, may you always have a voice!
    Sorry about Holly, I liked her style.
    Thank you for keeping me up on what is current.
    I always come away from here with a smile!
    love and prayers, jep

  8. I love your voice! And Holly's is beautiful. She will go far and I hope to see more of her.

  9. I agree about Holly. So sad to see her go.

  10. OK, I was sad to see Holly go also. Do you watch the X Factor? If so, don't you just love Alex and Sierra? They are the only reason I watch the X Factor.

  11. We are loving DWTS this season. I am rooting for Amber!

    We haven't been watching the voice. I will go listen to the video you posted and see what I am missing. :)
