Short Notes – 11.6.13

The Voice has become the best talent show on American television.  It has a hipper, more relevant feel than X-Factor or American Idol and it just has a better “feel” than the others.  Last night, Jacquie Lee became this season’s favorite to win….  she is only 16, the youngest contestant in this year’s show and A-MA-ZING!  If Christina Aguilera doesn’t mess it up she could finally get a win….

Sunday Playlist – Hello, My Name Is

Helen is on her way out the door on…  Big Brother 15

So we know that this week, one of the evicted house guests will be coming back on Big Brother.  It will either be Candice, Jessie, Judd or the houseguest evicted this Thursday, more than likely Helen.  As much as I would LOVE for Judd to come back, how much fun would it be to see Amanda’s face if Helen walks out and walks right back in to fight it out… now THAT would be Big Brother worth watching!
