After taking a mini-hiatus so my cohost Jeffery Austin could move to Nashville and become neighbors with Kris Allen, David Cook, and Paul McDonald, “The Day After” is finally back to catch up on all things American Idol and Voice.
For the latter show, we discuss the bombshell announcement of Ariana Grande joining the Season 21 coaching panel, the also-surprising addition of substitute coach Kelsea Ballerini while Kelly Clarkson sat out this week’s Battle Rounds, and the Voice Season 20 Battles so far — all with varying degrees of excitement. And for Idol, we get into this week’s Final Judgment/Showstoppers/Green Mile round, and look ahead to next week’s celebrity duets. We’re a bit more excited about all stuff, unsurprisingly.
Now that we are back on track, “The Day After” will returning to its regular scheduled programming next week for more The Voice and American Idol chatter, with hopefully a few sidebars for The Masked Singer and RuPaul’s Drag Race. In the meantime, thanks as always to our Idol pals Brandon Rogers and Blake Lewis for our funky “The Day After” theme song, and if you prefer the written word, check out my American Idol, The Voice, Masked Singer, and Drag Race articles on Yahoo Entertainment here.
