Blind Auditions Round 2 Preview Performance on THE VOICE

If you remember from an early The Voice preview where Adam Levine buzzes in, turns, looks confused, and then later admits he thought the singer was a woman? Here’s that full performance. I could see how he made the mistake.

NBC Moves THE VOICE To A New Time

Are fans of The Voice night owls? NBC must think so because starting May 10th the network is shifting the new show to a later timeslot. Instead of starting at 9PM ET like it will for its first two weeks The Voice will be delayed until a start time of 10PM ET. The move was made to accommodate two hour long episodes of The Biggest Loser.

“The Voice” next airs Tuesday, May 3 (9-11 p.m. ET) and then will be broadcast from 10-11 p.m. (ET) each Tuesday night on May 10, May 17 and May 24 following new episodes of “The Biggest Loser” (Tuesdays, 8-10 p.m. ET).

I didn’t mind staying up until 11PM last week for the premiere because the show had me hooked after the first hour, but getting started at 10PM? Eh. Things will have to start being incredible or this may become a next-morning-DVR event.

Also note that the show will be dropping to just one hour a week. My other favorite reality shows, Big Brother and American Idol, push out two to three episodes a week. Seems like NBC should have enough content to fill two one-hour episodes.

Update: Starting June 7th, The Voice will air at 9PM ET/PT for the live rounds.

NBC Adds More Coaching Talent To THE VOICE

NBC are pulling out the big guns. The Voice network has just announced that they’ll be bringing in big names to support the coaches (judges) during the “Battles” portion of the show.

NBC must have been waiting to see how The Voice did during its premiere week before agreeing to drop more money to get these names involved. We’re glad to see NBC up’ing their support for what looks to be a great new show.

NBC Press Release:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – April 29, 2011 – NBC revealed that it will add more star-power to its new vocal competition series “The Voice” with singers Reba, Monica, Sia (Furler) and music producer Adam Blackstone joining the series as new advisers who will lend their experience and talents to musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for the next “Battles” competition phase.

Aguilera (@therealxtina) will team up with singer/songwriter Sia (@Siamusic), Levine (@adamlevine) with Maroon 5 Music Director Blackstone (@bassicblack), Green (@CeeLoGreen) with singer Monica (@MonicaMyLife), and Shelton (@blakeshelton) with veteran singer Reba (@Reba) — eventually cutting their teams in half by pitting two of their own artists against each other in a series of dueling duets.

Each of the musician coaches chose their advisers to help them at the next “Battles” stage that lasts across four episodes. Reba, Monica, Sia and Blackstone were picked because they are in the trusted inner circle of the respective musician coach that they are helping. They are being brought in by the musician coaches to bring out the best in each of their artists, help to select songs that suit specific vocal styles and provide advice for performance. These adviser rosters will expand when the competition moves on to the live performance stage.

Which of these supporting coaches would you want to work with?

The Voice Episode 2: Blind Auditions Round 2 Preview

Are you ready to watch The Voice again? Well here comes episode 2 which features the second round of blind auditions. NBC released the following teaser video, but it’s all judges and no singing so hopefully they get something else out with that too.

Until we get some more singing clips you can watch performances from the first episode or even the entire first episode!

The Voice on NBC returns Tuesday at 9PM ET.

Premiere Ratings Are Solid For The Voice On NBC

Good news for fans of NBC‘s new show, The Voice. Ratings came in very solid for the series debut with an average of 5.1 adults in the 18-49 bracket. That gave NBC the win for the night in that particular group, which is a coveted demographic. That rating translates in to a high 11 million, nearly 12 million viewer average for the two-hour premiere episode. Missed it? No problem. You can watch The Voice online.

These were the best premiere ratings NBC has earned since The Jay Leno Show in 2009 and American Gladiators in 2008. Gulp. Both of those shows are in the trash bin over at NBC. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to this one too because I’m actually getting to like it! What about you?

Watch The Voice Online: Entire First Episode

NBC has released a legit, full version of last night’s show so you can watch The Voice online today. Here is the Blind Auditions, Round 1 episode:

What did you think of The Voice premiere? I was impressed!

The Voice Blind Auditions Round 1 Results

The first round of The Voice Blind Auditions are now over and each coach has three singers on his or her team. Here are the results from the first night.

  • Christina Aguilera picked up Frenchie Davis (of former American Idol fame), Tarralyn Ramsey, and Beverly McClellan.
  • Cee Lo Green selected Kelsey Rey, Tje Austin, and Vicci Martinez.
  • Blake Shelton chose Xenia Martinez, Elenowen (duet), and Patrick Thomas.
  • Adam Levine will work with Rebecca Loebe, Jeff Jenkins, and Javier Colon.

This leaves five open spots on each of the coaches teams so we’ll have a few more Blind Auditions to go before the selections are complete on The Voice.

Let me know what you thought of the premiere episode. I was impressed. It was much better than I thought it’d be as there really was a good voice on talent even if I wasn’t impressed by some of the singers they picked over those they let go. The Voice show could have some real potential here, but it’s still got a lot left to prove.

If you missed the show then you’re in luck because NBC is running an encore performance tonight (Wednesday) at 9PM ET.

The Voice Blind Auditions: Javier Colon Performs Time After Time

Javier Colon may be the breakout star of NBC’s The Voice. He’s already climbed in to the Top 50 on iTunes for his performance of Time After Time. Very well done cover. Javier earned himself a spot on Adam Levine’s team. Keep an eye on this guy!

The Voice Blind Auditions: Kelsey Rey Performs American Boy

Kelsey Rey‘s backstory was that she was tired of being judged on her looks rather than her vocal talents. The Voice gave her an opportunity to test that to find out if she was good enough based only on her singing. Turns out she was good enough for three of the coaches and picked to go on Cee Lo Green’s team.

Here Kelsey performs American Boy on NBC’s The Voice:

I wonder if those million YouTube hits she mentioned were for her voice or her looks. What do you think?

The Voice Blind Auditions: Elenowen Duets Falling Slowly

Going in to The Voice premiere I didn’t realize they could do group performances like The X Factor is going to allow. It doesn’t seem like the judges/coaches were expecting that either as you can see from their confusion when the second voice hits during Elenowen‘s performance of Falling Slowly.

Elenowen had to pick between Cee Lo and Blake Shelton. They struggled with the choice but decided Blake was who they wanted to work with the most.

Hopefully this show will get those two out of her parents’ basement!
