NBC’s new series The Voice premieres on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 9:00 pm-11:00 pm ET before moving to its regularly scheduled time of 8:00-9:00 pm.  NBC released a sneak peek video featuring the four vocal coaches, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as they perform the Cee-Lo Green hit song “Crazy.”  You may watch that video, as well as an extended look at the new series in the videos below. 


The Voice has been patterned after the popular Holland show The Voice of Holland.  There are three aspects to the show: the blind audition, the competition and the liver performances.  During the blind auditions, the coaches will base their decisions on the contestants voices based solely upon the quality of their audition and not on physical appearance.   Each coach will listen as the contestants perform while they sit in rotating chairs.  The chairs continue to rotate and when a coach hears a voice of someone they’d like to work with they push a button and add the contestant to his or her team.  Only after the coach hits the button will the chair turn and the coach be able to see the contestants face and physical appearance. 

The blind auditions will be held until the teams are set, after which the battle begins.  The battle will be tough as the coaches will set two of their teammates against each other as they perform the same songs.  The coaches with then determine who will advance and who will be eliminated.  The teams will continue to battle it out each week until one singer will be named “The Voice.”  The winning contestant will win a professional recording contract as well as $100,000.
