I have been telling the Greek God(zilla) FOR YEARS that the double denim look is not a good one.
A couple of weeks ago, a cool and trendy friend of ours disagreed and said that actually, denim on denim is back and cool again.
Watching The Voice for the past few weeks, it would appear that she was right.
Danny O’Donoghue has been sporting a denim jacket with jeans ensemble week on week and as a rock/pop star on prime time Saturday night TV, I’m sure someone is paid very well to make sure he looks the part.
But Jessie J soared right up in my estimations last night, when she joked that you should never trust a man wearing denim on denim. HA! I knew it.
So, thank you Jessie J. As probably one of the coolest and trendiest people “right now”, your opinion trumps that of the Greek God(zilla) and Danny’s stylist every time.
A thought aside – does anyone know why the judges are wearing the same outfits in every show? Is it for editing purposes or did all the auditions happen over the course of one day (surely not)?
So, the third week of The Voice saw will.i.am up his game a bit and secure 4 more artists for his team. I was not sure of Tyler James at first because of how his whole back story focused on his friendship with Amy Winehouse, but I was relieved when he came out on stage and:
a. could sing
b. did not sing an Amy song (cringe)
c. did not mention the Amy connection to the judges
I hope he was one of the good people in her life.
Danny is struggling, I think. Last night he added Bo Bruce to his team. She’s ok. She has a nice voice and reminded me a bit of The Cranberries. I think she ended up with the right person although quiet word to Bo – posh folk should not say ‘wicked’.
Sir Tom Jones is a legend and still my favourite judge. Leanne Mitchell belted out If I Was as Boy last night and joined the other big voices on Team Tom.
I’m not sure if any of them really stand out enough for me to pick a winner at this stage, but I’m looking forward with interest to see how the final week of Blind auditions unfolds and then let The Battles commence.
It’s so exciting!
But first, and more importantly:
Double Denim – yes or no?
