I haven't seen on it, but hey the Idiot Club just posted an exclusive video, they just said that, what is it about I don't have an account :c

 

The video of the idiot club is just a cassette playing X-kid. During  4 minutes. It is pointless I was expecting one of the band members to show up. Maybe Billie... But no just a cassette playing for 4 minutes...

Eh...I didn't like it that much. There was no emotion expressed AT ALL.

I liked it. You cannot compare to the original (of course!!!) but they tried to sing like the original instead of singing in their own way, which would change completely the song. 

So, I think it's a good tribute to Green Day besides the fact that Good Riddance is always a perfect song for seasons finales :)

 

p.s.: and if you want to know what I meant when saying that they "tried to sing like the original instead of singing in their own way", watch this cover (that I personally hate although she's a portuguese singer):

I think it would have been good if Blake, Cee-lo, Christina, and Adam didn't sing it. And Billie was on stage playing/singing. But maybe that's just me :P

 

But in all seriousness, I think Adam is the only person that sang the song half way decent. Putting a country twist on Green Day obviously does NOT work. Christina voice is too just over the top, and Cee-lo...I never understood how he became a singer :P

It was ok I guess.

The country guy made it sound country.
Cee Lo can't sing, he tried his best.
Christina was trying too hard.
Adam can do whatever the fuck he wants cause he's fine :wub:

I don't think they did as badly as everyone else here, but the reaction kinda reminds me how I felt watching that Across the Universe butchering by all the greats and Billie at the Grammys that time :lol:  What a shit-show!

Love how they're singing it in Billie Joe's honour, even though it's a 'fuck off' song.

Watching even the first 30 seconds of that before I turned it off made my balls itch.  That was absolutely horrid.

It goes to show you how it's the person, not the voice.  Terrible.

I disagree. 

 

 

Also, would like to give Adam props for including the little fuckups in the beginning of the song

Meh. I thought the performance came across as extremely wooden, although clearly all the judges were trying to making it appear as passionate as possible.

Christina was the only one that sounded decent, in my opinion. They should've just left the whole song to her.

I watched the video. I liked the song choice. One, because its Green Day. 2, Its the season finale of their show. And it is a great closing song for any ceremoniously ending moment. Also I researched the Voice US and found out that Cee Lo Green & Christina will not be on the show for the next season, so that makes it an even greater song choice to sing with all 4 of them on stage. I liked their performance though, it was four very different artists coming together to sing a great song and as well sung by a singer (Billie Joe Armstrong) who is very different from the four of them.

Eh, I've heard better. Adam and Blake were okay I guess. Cee-Lo's voice with that song doesnt make sense. And Christina was overdoing the song.

This song was more about a final goodbye to each other rather than doing a cover of a Green Day song, properly.

I love C Loo, I loved Maroon 5, I don't dislike Christina at all, and I'm indifferent to the Alabama dude.
the voice was actually really good, it was pretty cool seeing all the different voices competing, so over all, I loved it :3

LOL @ people still not knowing what good riddance is about! If they knew they would never used it for funerals, graduations, movies etc or in this case the voice finale (I dont watch the voice so maybe its appropiate)

 

but i really liked that cover and ofcourse adam was the worst :happy:  It was really cool for them to do this.

(I just realized this song came out 14 years ago! I feel so old even though I'm just 20 years old :lol:)

Adam was my favorite. He just sounded more real. Ce lo should never sing it again, poor Blake and the accent. :lol: he also messed up on a lyric, and Christina is a fabulous singer but come on lower your voice a bit for this kind of song... we know you can sing stop trying to show off your vocal ability.

Like most people have said already, the song would have been 10x better without Xtina.

Lemme tell ya my direct opinion. It was horrible. Christina was the only one that sounded fine, but the others...it sounded like they can't sing at all.

 I actually really like this! I love the acoustic mandolin twist; it really works.
