Tonight, the competition to become the next American Idol is officially on as the Top 10 take the stage to perform “Music of the American Idols.”
Last week, NBC’s The Voice kicked off the third stage of it’s vocal competition with the live shows. This week we find out which two members from Team Blake and Team Christina advance, as well as see Team Adam and Team Cee Lo take the stage for the first time during the live show.
Alison Haislip, The Voice’s Social Media Correspondent spoke with the press last week about how her role on the show is changing now that The Voice has gone live, how important it is for the contestants to connect with their fans via social media, and what she thinks about the reports on the lack of critiquing from coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, and Cee Lo Green.
Haislip has a unique opportunity as the show’s Social Media Correspondent to connect with fans through Twitter and other social media outlets as a way to encourage their participation in building The Voice contestants’ individual fan bases, connecting with the contestants, and most importantly, voting. Haislip feels like the excitement to participate has grown, since fans realize that they can get their questions/comments shown on the air.
