A reality TV show judged by a singer's voice versus "the whole package" by judges CeeLo, Adam Levine, Christina Aquilera, and Blake Shelton. The host is Carson Daly. The judges pick their faves, battle it out and if there are more than one judge fighting over a singer, the singer gets to choose who they want to work with. Then, the judges become coaches and will help train the singers for the next round. Then, there is a battle where the coach/judges have to cut their teams in half until a winner is chosen.

From NBC's site:

"The Voice" is a vocal competition series modeled after Holland's top-rated vocal talent discovery show, "The Voice of Holland." Hosted by Carson Daly, the show features four musician coaches: Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who will coach only the most talented vocalists.

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 show's casting team is working with the music industry and searching the country for the best singers to bring to the blind audition process. During the blind auditions, the decisions from the coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. 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.

Once the teams are set, the battle is on. 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.

At the end of the battle episodes, only the strongest members of each coach's roster remain and proceed to the live stage shows. 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. From these four, one will be named "The Voice" - and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract and $100,000.

"The Voice" is a presentation of Talpa Productions, Mark Burnett and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John De Mol, who will executive produce along with Burnett and Audrey Morrissey.

Quick Tip by . February 24, 2012
This show is such a refreshing take on singing competitions. In a field that definitely uses appearances to judge if someone is talented, it's nice to see a competition that judges solely on talent, alone. This show also uses successful musicians/singers as judges. You know...people that we've actually heard of and probably whose albums we've purchased. Each week during the blind auditions, I'm on the edge of my seat and yes, sometimes yelling at the screen- PUSH THE BUTTON! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!?? …
