A Quick Tip by djevoke

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?!?!?? The talent that comes out to audition is always incredible. I think I've only seen a couple that would qualify for American Idol's joke auditions. Miss the first few episodes? Catch up on Hulu or OnDemand, you won't be sorry.

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 ...
