Recap: Season 2 Battle Rounds, Week 1

What a first night of battle rounds! Read my Starpulse recap of all the action.

And stay tuned…I spent today interviewing many of the artists from season two, and you’ll see those interviews starting tomorrow. Get to know your new artists, who are both talented vocalists and really fantastic people.

On that subject, one sour note: this season NBC has chosen not to release battle round duets as duets, but rather the winning artist’s solo version of their duet song. I can’t express enough my objection to this decision. I feel it does a disservice to the audience and to the other artist that we can’t get the songs as they were originally performed. Hopefully, if we speak up, maybe they’ll institute a change for next week’s duets. Here’s hoping!
