    I've seen Jennifer run on stage to sing with so many people but aside from being excited to sing with people who share her talent she is also testing thier range. Not many people these days can hit the notes Jennifer can hit. And for her to be thier coach she needs to know what they can do. So part of her is running on stage to test it and play with thier voices. Even if that is not the original intention.

    just when 3 whites thought he was black and didnt turn but the one black turned to get the shock of her life that he was white…racism

  • Reply Jesus Is0urSAVi0r! January 18, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    God gave me abilities to sing like multiple black guys like he can do. It's a miracle from us having God's spirit working threw us! Go get saved an u might get the same thing if you'll glorify God with your voice like he and I do.

    Wtf?? I just happened across this video bc I wanted to see
    Maxwell’s MTV unplugged version. Did Miley get all the judges high before the show? I cannot believe that nobody turned within the first 10 seconds of his performance!! He was phenomenal, plain and simple. I felt personally insulted that the judges all had that “hmm should I turn” look. I can’t believe JHud waited till the last second to turn! And then I can’t beleive she didn’t reprimand the other judges for NOT turning! That was undeniably a 4 chair turn—Even if all their teams were all almost full!!! Those judges have turned for far far far less talented vocalists. Shame on ALL of them. I so wish I had seen this season! Where was I??? Oh well. But-Yup….the judges MUST have been high. That’s the only thing that could possibly explain it.
