    O holy shit, you can actually kinda sing.. I mean like i know nothing about singing just really love it but i have watched now i think 5 videos of yours and thats the first time you have started to sing during a video. Talking about at 06:15 ish.. I might need to watch some more of your reaction videos.

    Fun Fact: cassadee pope was also the first the voice winner who had a semi famous band before auditioning.

  • Dion

    I think the reason the old contestants sound pitchy is because they don't have in-ear monitors. kelly clarkson actually talked about this on her show that it was difficult bcz of that. But now, they have iems.

    Her talk show is the replacement for Ellen when the world was SHOCKED! JUST SHOCKED😈!!! To find out she was a twat and treated people including successful celebrities with actual talent like they were nobodies. Kelly is a sweet person and is bringing in good numbers and will likely be as or more successful as Ellen ans do the talk show thing for a very long time. She'll make millions more from talking to junk so called celebrities than she will now from music. Shes at ths tail end of career and its this or Vegas for 3 year stint. I think wed all pic to sit-down and talk to people for hundreds of thousands of dollars an episodes and that will go up yearly till she's earning Ellen money which is a million+ an episode. Mark my words

    It's so unfair to Caleb Johnson, what an amazing voice, and range! But in 2014 all the young people where like "no, we like pop and EMD!" and the older generation thats into rock is like "doesn't compare to Def Leppard or Bon Jovi and the others", which I feel is in the same type of music, like anthem-rock.

    Kelly Clarkson's career is incredible to me; she's the first winner of American Idol and she's still incredibly successful and by far the most prolific winner of any singing contest.

    Hey Joel, please read this! If you want you can translate this. Ragazzi italiani della community, questo è un messaggio per voi. Joel non ha MAI reagito alla musica italiana! So che molti di noi non ascoltano musica italiana ma dobbiamo fare qualcosa. Copiate e incollate questo commento. Joel, we want to see Italian music on this channel! So che insieme ce la faremo.

    Cassadee Pope is incredible. Her earlier band Hey Monday had a ton of "pop punk" hits but she truly hit her stride with her solo music.

    Do another video of the dances video and include the dances from one direction's best song ever and the no control dance!!!! I will post it on every video until u do Joel!!!!

  • UnixS125

    I mean Cass was in Hey Monday before being on the show so she already had been signed before so I still don’t understand how that worked. Still wished she was making alt pop but best of luck for her in country.

    All these chicks I went to school with kept talking about the “Before He Cheats,” song and how they were gonna do the same thing to their man if he cheats. And I was like “maybe he’ll keep on cheating, but you’ll end up in court or community jail for property damage. Don’t do it.” 🤦🏻‍♀️

    You briefly mentioned James Arthur's voice but didn't include him in the list?? You should do a part 2 and rectify this! And include Susan Boyle, Guy Sebastian etc. And also include runners up that became more famous (eg. One Direction, Jessica Mauboy, Melanie Martinez, Fifth Harmony).

    I knew Cassadee from when she's still in Hey Monday. They were more on the rock, pop-punk ish band back then. I knew she auditioned for The Voice and got through the blind audition, but never knew she won it until maybe 2 years ago, lmao 😂

    They all sound kinda the same if you pay attention, like the music style maybe because its pop but they have a certain something thats pretty much the same for all if not most of them, some of the ones that didnt won these doesnt sound the same as the others

    Cassadee was also in a band called Hey Monday and was featured in some other songs with other emo bands of the time. Some of my fave songs from her was from that era.

    omg yes little mix is so good. They literally have one of the best vocals in the industry and yet they are so underrated, especially in the usa (but that's more Simon Cowell's fault...)
