"The Voice" returns to NBC tonight, Monday - February 24th, 2014 - with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show's sixth season!
Celebrity musicians and coaches Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton return, while Carson Daly continues to serve as host.
If you're not all that familiar with The Voice, the show's innovative format features four stages of competition:
During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don't get to see them - thanks to rotating chairs. A coach impressed by an artist's voice pushes a button to select the singer for his/her team. At this point, the coach's chair swivels so that he/she can face the artist selected. If multiple coaches push their buttons for a singer, the power then shifts to the artist to choose which coach he/she wants to work with. If no coach pushes his/her button, the contestant is eliminated from the competition.
In the live performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team will compete against each other every week during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists, and the two singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week.
In the end, one will be named "The Voice" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
The one component of The Voice that appeals to me more than other musical competitions on television these days is that competing artists are encouraged, not blasted. I think that says a lot about the producer of the show and their reason for hosting this program.
I'm excited to watch a new lineup of performers and competitors Monday night on The Voice! Have you been a faithful viewer of all five previous seasons...or is this a new-to-you television program?
