Don't know how many of you watched it or will watch it. But most of you know I am not a TV type person. But I got sucked in for sure. I gotta say it was a cool show. I'm a huge sucker for a good choir, especially gospel.

The celeb's who made choirs that are competing for a charity in their home town are Nick Lachey for Cincinatti, Kelly Rowland for Houston, Michael Bolton for New Haven CT, Blake Shelton for Oklahoma City and the best for last, Patti LaBelle for Philly. I knew Lachey would bring a killer choir and he did. But Kelly Rowland formerly of Destiny's Child also brought a killer choir. The surprise was country bumpkin Blake Shelton who in the early clips looked as though his choir would be kind of lame was actually damn good. Michael Bolton did OK and his choir did Bon Jovi's Livin on the Edge which was kind of lame for the most part.

But again, the best for last. Friggin Patti LaBelle brought out an absolute killer choir and did He's got the Whole World in his Hand. The place went nuts as was what I think was expected.

The cool thing is these choirs are put together of just plain ordinary people for the most part.

I hate to say it, but I enjoyed watching TV for a moment there.

I had every intention of peeking in on that show. Sounds like I missed a pretty good one. I kind of figure if you put the name Patti+gospel together its got to be good.

man, that sounds like it would've been cool to watch. I don't watch too much tv either, but I tend to lean towards sports and music type programming. and man, I'm not that religious, but I really enjoy me some gospel music.

i just flew to florida and listened to a GREAT choir on the way over. it's called the rustavi choir. it's georgian sacred music. it's all modal and weird. going from minor to major, in multiple voices. i definitely recommend it.

Looks like it is on every night this week I guess. I'll be tuning in again then to see more of it.

My money is on either Kelly or Patti, but who knows. Its one of those shows that the viewer vote is what really counts. So it might fall to the country guy, maybe he has more fans watching. Or even Mr. Bolton could win if he still has a large enough fan base.

But I'm guessing that once people hear the other choirs they may realize that Patti has got the killer choir!

And ya forty, Rustavi has some stunning sounding stuff. And it is indeed some intense stuff to listen to.
