Just saw this article, and thought it would make a good thread.

So, which show is better? Personally I believe that Voice is a "improved" version of Idol. I was never a fan of Idol from the get go...never watched it..did check it out in years past when they had the "Beatles cover" episodes. But clearly Voice added a few variations that make it alot more fun to warch than Idol. Mainly, the "competition" between the judges gives it a dimension that is alot more appealing than Idol. The judges simply sitting at the table...giving their "opinion" of the performances...not much space to go ANYWHERE with that. The Voice judges "pick" their team of singers...they train with them and then compete head to head...again far MORE interesting than hearing orb say..."are you sure your happy with your song choice?" or JLo saying..."I think your great."
