The Voice opened its penultimate episode last night with a version of “Hallelujah” sung by the coaches–Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton–and all 20 contestants, and even host Carson Daly. Each was holding a sign with the name of one of the victims of Friday’s shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
about reality blurred
I’m Andy Dehnart, a writer who obsessively and critically covers reality TV, focusing on how it’s made and what it means.
I created reality blurred 20 years ago as a place to collect interesting links I found. Today, I review and recommend reality shows, documentaries, and nonfiction entertainment; analyze news and report from behind the scenes; and interview people who create and star in reality TV shows. You'll also find other people's insightful takes on reality TV in these pages, too.
I believe pop culture can both entertain and affect us, and so reality blurred's goal is to amplify the best and hold the worst accountable. In other words, I’m here to call it out when it sucks and celebrate it when it’s amazing. Let’s talk about it together!
