The Voice Blind Auditions: Rebecca Loebe Performs Come As You Are

Rebecca Loebe decided to put her own twist on Nirvana’s Come As You Are and she did it well enough to make me scratch my head trying to figure out the original! Here’s her performance from The Voice Blind Auditions. Rebecca will go on to be part of Adam Levine‘s team for the second round.

This should be a step up from living out of the back of her car as she tours the country looking for gigs!

THR Presents: 10 Things To Know About The Voice

The Hollywood Reporter has presented a “top ten” list, in a horribly non-paragraphed manner (unless they’ve corrected that), of everything you must know going in to tonight’s premiere of The Voice on NBC. Here are the Top 3. You’ll have to jump over to their site for the full list.

1) Focus on quality: Instead of weeding through open auditions a la American Idol, The Voice’s A&R team went out looking for performers, upping the overall performance.

2) Traces of Survivor: Once contestants have joined a team, the Battle Round begins, where coaches select two of their own teammates to go head-to-head in a performance of the same song. Coaches then consult one another on each performer’s merit, offering feedback that could potentially sabotage each other.

3) More Paula Abdul, less Simon Cowell: While Idol has been known to be brutally honest, the format for The Voice celebrates the performers and is more Paula Abdul, less Simon Cowell. Aguilera cemented that, saying : “At the end of the day, that’s what The Voice is really about — emotion and touching people.”

Touching people? That definitely sounds like Paula to me! Hollywood Reporter offers up the rest of their list, including thoughts on host Carson Daly, its social networking element, and the Glee angle. Check it out!

Judges Go CRAZY On The Voice

Well, not literally, of course. The Voice judges got together on their new NBC stage and broke out a rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” Perhaps intended as a not so subtle reminder that Voice judge Cee Lo Green brought that song to life.

What did you think of their performance? Considering the talent behind American Idol’s judges’ table, maybe they should have done something like this earlier in the season!

What Is The Voice? NBC Explains

Are you trying to figure out “What is The Voice”? Well I imagine you’re not alone. The Voice is another transplant reality show from Europe, Holland to be specific, and features four American judges working with solo musical acts to develop and mentor a winner for the season. Of course that’s very simplified. Here’s what NBC had to say.

The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance.

The coaches hear the contestants perform, but they don’t get to see them – thanks to rotating chairs. If a coach is impressed by a contestant’s voice, he/she pushes a button to select the contestant. At this point, the coach’s chair will swivel to face the contestant selected. If more than one coach selects the talent, the power shifts to the contestant, who may choose which coach they want to work with throughout the competition.

Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their singers, giving them advice, and sharing the secrets of their success. During the battle rounds the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. After the vocal face-off, the coach must choose which singers will advance.

In this final performance phase of the competition, the top contestants from each team will compete against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save one contestant on each team, leaving the coach to decide live who they want to save and who will not move on.

At last, each coach will have his/her best contestant left standing to compete in the finale.

$100,000 sounds kinda skimpy considering how heavily NBC has been pimping this show, but I guess money is money.
