La Reina de la Canción 2019 season on Univision
Sundays 8pm/7c starting 9/22 ~10 episodes
I CAN'T WAIT!
Looking at a promo it looks like their might be more musical variety this time and not just música regional.
First impression - the judges' chairs are too low y pobres de ellos trying to get up!
Well...its definitely different from the first season.
I'm about halfway through and I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. I agree on the chairs--I felt awkward just looking at them!
I also don't like the dead silence while the contestants walk out to the stage, and then the random sound effects before their track starts playing (which takes too damn long!), and then the weird "We're going to vote now," that requires a shift in the lighting. And why is there not a host?! I know, I sound cranky, but I did like some of the contestants...only I've already forgotten their names. I'm gonna put up some kind of scorecard thing with names and songs and stuff because I definitely feel like I need it.
I'm in the same boat. I didn't love it or hate it. Im not sure about the changes, especially the musical variety. I don't like that basically we're watchimg the auditions. With the last season it felt like we started off with a stronger group. And there's only 10 episodes? How much time is going to be spent on auditions? I like the polishing the most.
They have ten so far who've made it onto the show and it looks like next week we get more auditions? And then 8 episodes to get it from what, 20? to 1? So possibly only 5-6 episodes of working with Pedro and Sergio. Which might be why they don't want the ones with less experience, control, and breath support.
And now that I can remember who they are, I think my favorites were J and Azucena. Maybe it's just that I was more alert and awake at the beginning of the show than when it dragged on. If they were going to spend so much time talking to people, why not cut some of that silence out!
Cristina. She's got such good control and I love the tone of her voice.
Bárbara is also fabulous and versatile.
Itzel gave me goosebumps.
Oh, forget it. At this point I'm cheering for everyone. This is gonna be tough.
I like that Olga and Nati are sitting there communicating telepathically while the contestants sing. Poor Joss, though, he does get left out.
Barbara was the one who mixed all the different songs and styles together, right? And then inviting the judges to sing with her? I was like, wait, can she do that? Cool! She was impressive.
I need my notes to remember the names of the rest of them, but I remember the gal in the red cowboy hat, I thought she was really good, but I didn't understand the advice Joss was giving her. What was that about?
This time seemed more positive and supportive, or maybe it was just this episode?
I thought they seemed to be trying to give constructive criticism and not just, you're in/you're out, which was good.
I know they got permission but I really wish they wouldn't show the really bad auditions that didn't get past the first round.
