10 Questions

The Voice Senior: was that vibrato or parkinson’s?

The songs were often multivocaal, the glasses multifocal. A program such as The Voice of Senior you can easily lame jokes.

Or: during the first “katarakt” auditions fell a few candidates, because they descend from the stage, and had not seen. Or even: some participants could be seen in the quality of the voice is difficult to estimate …

Or: during the first “katarakt” auditions fell a few candidates, because they descend from the stage, and had not seen. Or even: some participants could be seen in the quality of the voice is difficult to estimate, it is often a thin line between virtuoso vibrato and advanced parkinson’s disease.

That is disrespectful. But what would it be: The Voice of Senior is that also, albeit on a different level. There are no “shallow” pacemaker-jokes made (it may be yet to come, you may that Walter Grootaers not be underestimated), but the way in which aged over 60 in this program are treated, is at times hemeltergend. The sound of the members of the jury (in addition to Grootaers also Dana Winner, Helmut Lotti, and the inevitable Natalia) is here krek The same as in The Voice Kids: played troubled, insincere admiration, overly motivating, in a word: patronizing and condescending (oops, those are two words, we are old). As the human resources for health in some nursing homes the elderly addresses as they pamper come to refresh or them in the bath want to stop, say this, four people on the stage.

The older the participant, the neerbuigender that sound. “May I ask your age, Marjetje?” asked Dana Winner, unasked, on a woman who Mariette is called. ‘78, ” said Marriette. “Oh my god!” exclaimed the Winner. Marjetje received an encouraging round of applause because of her gritty age.

Childish

All the seniors were asked the question how old they were. Later ask them what they would like to be if they are dead, feared we even. That was, fortunately, not. Dana Winner speldde her candidates a pin on the chest with the text ‘You’re a winner’. Because yes, that is a little bit in my name.” Don’t be so childish, man, would the participants in The Voice Kids have said.

The only one that denied her age, was Lea Couzin. ‘A year older than my teeth, ” she said. Couzin, you can still know as Merlina from the eponymous eighties-youngsters, what is really all involved the statement, ” archer calls Merlina’ elicited. Jesus Christ.

What is next, we could only wonder. The Voice Spectrum, with people with autism? That there will be perhaps something calmer like that. Or The Voice Down, with candidates with down’s Syndrome? The sound can in both cases be maintained.

Before we forget: Lea Couzin is on October 17, 84 become, teaches us Wikipedia. A well-deserved round of applause for Leah, even though she was not by the auditions and almost didn’t descend the stairs.
