When THE VOICE 2012 premiere hits on February 5th the sophomore season of NBC’s hit singing competition show will dive straight in to the Blind Audition rounds and it’s going to stay there for quite awhile.
Last week executive producer Mark Burnett revealed the season will increase its teams from 8 singers per mentor to 12. That raises the total number of performers by 50%, from 32 to 48 total. Wow. Not only does that mean the mentors’ teams will grow, but so will the time required to get through the Blind Auditions phase of the competition.
Did you enjoy the auditions enough to see 50% more of that phase or would you prefer to keep The Voice as it was last season?

Javier Colon might have locked down the title of being the first winner of NBC’s The Voice, but he isn’t stopping his television conquests there just yet. Colon is set to return to television but in a whole different setting: The Playboy Club, NBC’s new television series set in the 60′s.
The Voice’s first winner will soon play legendary singer Ray Charles in an upcoming role on The Playboy Club, executive producer Chad Hodge confirmed to E! News.
So which one of Ray’s songs will he be belting out?
The $100,000 prize winner will croon “Let the Good Times Roll” in The Playboy Club’s sixth episode.
Not a bad job to land though there aren’t any details on just how many appearances Colon will have or if this one visit will be the limit of his involvement. Congrats to Javier on his continued success.

Thinking of trying out for The Voice 2012? Then read this advice from Michelle McNulty, the supervising casting director for the new season of NBC’s The Voice.
1. Know what kind of artist you want to be. “Especially for this show, there aren’t theme weeks so much. It’s about knowing the kind of artist you want to be,” McNulty says. “If you want to be a country artist, you come in and sing country songs. If you want to be a pop artist, sing those pop songs.”
2. Know your capabilities as an artist. “Song choice is very, very important,” she points out. “Just because you like the song doesn’t necessarily mean you should sing that song. It might be out of your range. So, it’s important to know your range as an artist and to sing songs that are good for your voice.”
When The Voice returns for its sophomore season in 2012 you’ll be watching it on a whole new day and time.
NBC announced on Monday The Voice 2012 would debut on February 5, 2012 immediately following the Super Bowl. The rest of the season will play out on Mondays from 8PM – 10PM. Finally! A decent time block for the show that is giving NBC some of its best ratings in years.
Don’t forget that all four coaches will be returning to claim their spinning chairs. No word yet on the return of Carson Daly as the show’s “host” which leaves me hope that they’re working to find a replacement due to “scheduling conflicts.” Fingers crossed.

NBC has confirmed that all four coaches: Aguilera, Green, Levine, and Shelton; will return for The Voice 2012 when it debuts next year after the Super Bowl.
A post Super Bowl launch would put the show directly in competition with the upcoming season of American Idol 2012 which must show a great deal of confidence from NBC executives. That confidence is well earned considering last season’s finale gave NBC the highest ratings for a non-sports event in three years!
Now that we know all four the
judges coaches are returning we won’t have to worry about the sort of uncertainty and nonsense we’re seeing with FOX’s singing shows.

Each of the four singers are pairing up for one last performance. Nicci teamed with Train singer Pat Monahan while Javier got to perform with Stevie Nicks! Wow, sorry Train, but I’m a little more impressed with NBC getting Nicks on the show.
Beverly gets the chance to perform “Good Life” with One Republic. Love the song but not sure it came off too well live. Dia performed with Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert.
Carson Daly announces the top two positions were only separated by 2% in the votes. Wow, that is close!
