@mamashmoi Yeah I know, that's why I kinda wasn't in the mood. Specially after the marathon Voice results show on Tuesday.

I'll say it again: North Korea cannot be this powerful! They successfully got The Interview pulled... via cyber terrorism. Jaw-dropping.

The Power of Blake Shelton. This is pretty much a similar reaction to when Jermaine Paul won!

For an iconic song, this is kinda... boring ???

@KristineRichards Yes he did. The window closed at 12 pm today and this was posted at 11 am. He hit #1 last night.

@KristineRichards The first time Cassadee hit #1:


http://www.rickey.org/the-voice-top-10-on-itunes-charts/179083/


I think it's pretty clear to me after 7 seasons that fans buy to vote first, and the pleasure of having the song second. So dropping out when the votes "don't count" kinda doesn't matter as far as fans and the competition is concerned.


Sometimes there is a lingering effect if a song is really good. And since the Top 10 is prominently displayed on the iTunes screen, those songs tend to get even more exposure and kinda linger at times if the song is good enough (maybe a day or two).

@KristineRichards As I remember, Dia Frampton reached #1 on iTunes during the finale in Season 1 way before the voting window closed. The eventual winner, Javier Colon reached #2, then after he won, his single reached #1.


There have also been a few #1s during voting. I have to look at the archives. Cassadee Pope reached #1 before the voting window closed for sure.


Are you a new fan?
