    "The Voice" really seems to have lost the plot. I thought it was supposed to be about the "great", rather than the "nearly-great", as in shows like "X-Factor". Yet on Sat 25th, one of the best singers (in my opinion, albeit), Liam Tamne, gets booted out. So, as with many other talent shows, this show now seems focussed on the potential rather than the actual.
    There is also a question as to whether this is really a competition between the vocalists or the mentors or some mix of the two! If truly between the vocalists, then in the Battles, the two battling vocalist's mentor should stand aside and the other three mentors should make the decision who goes through - with three voters, no problem with getting a majority verdict.
    With regard to the steals, the format of the steals being made as the Battles proceed seems unfairly biased against those who appear late in the running order. Surely better to keep all the Battle losers to the end and then let the Mentors choose who to steal, in the process hopefully saving the better voices who would otherwise be lost.
    It seems to me that the show format has too many flaws in it for it to be a real success.
