The second part of the “blind auditions” continue as the superstar coaches search and pick artists to join their respective teams.

10:00pm – Sunday, February 5 on CTV

The second season of THE VOICE scores the most coveted timeslot in primetime television premiering after SUPER BOWL XLVI. During the Season 2 premiere, superstar coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton reunite to pick all-new teams in the first round of blind auditions.

CTV scores a major touchdown as the hit vocal competition series THE VOICE kicks off its second season premiere on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT (approximately), immediately following SUPER BOWL XLVI on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local listings).

Not only will THE VOICE coaches Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton be spectators at the biggest sporting event of the year immediately before the season premiere of their program, but Shelton and his wife, GRAMMY Award®-winner Miranda Lambert open the SUPER BOWL festivities with their performance of “America the Beautiful”.

Television’s break-out hit last summer and CTV’s #1 summer series, THE VOICE settles into its regular time slot of Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT the following night, Feb. 6, leading into the premiere of the highly anticipated musical-drama SMASH at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.

As last season’s top new reality program, THE VOICE returns with a new vocal arrangement as eight music industry giants join the team as advisers during the “battle rounds.” The superstar musical coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have each recruited two advisers to help mentor and prepare six separate artists, creating new “teams” including:

 

Team Adam (#TeamAdam #CTV):

Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke

 

Team Blake (#TeamBlake #CTV):

Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert

 

Team Cee Lo (#TeamCeeLo #CTV):

Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Ne-Yo

 

Team Christina (#TeamChristina #CTV):

Joining host Carson Daly is singer and actress Christina Milian as the series new social media correspondent who will make regular appearances during the live broadcasts. Continuing to push the boundaries between broadcast and online with social media conversations, Milian engages fans and connects them to artists and coaches from “THE VOICE Social Media Room” via Facebook and Twitter. During the live shows, fans who use #TheVoice or tweet at the show, coaches’ or artists’ official handles may see their tweets appear in the lower third of the screen.

THE VOICE is a fresh and innovative competition series with an inventive format that sets it apart from the rest. The series features three stages of competition, with the first stage being the much talked about “blind audition”, where the coaches choose their team based solely on voice and not on looks. The second stage is the “battle phase”, where the coaches develop their singers and pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. The final stage is the “live performance shows” where the top artists from each team compete against each other during a live broadcast. Viewers vote to save their favourite performer, leaving the coach to decide live who they want to save and who will not move on. In the end, each coach has one artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named THE VOICE and receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

THE VOICE is a presentation of Mark Burnett’s One Three Inc., Talpa Content USA, Inc., and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.

It’s official: viewers still prefer American Idol over all the others.

The Fox reality series has claimed the award for favourite competition show at the 38th Annual People’s Choice Awards, which took place on Wednesday.

Idol kicked clear of Dancing with the Stars, America’s Got Talent, The Voice and So You Think You Can Dance.

The X Factor USA was missing from the list of nominees after a so-so performance in its first season.

It is the sixth win in the category for the Idol, which has picked up the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2011 titles in the past.

Adam Levine believes that The X Factor USA, American Idol and his own The Voice are not competing for the same fans.

The Maroon 5 singer, who is a judge/coach on The Voice alongside Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton, believes the trio of talent shows all have their own unique fan bases.

“They have their own thing and their own fanbase. We don’t really concern ourselves with those shows because we are The Voice,” he told CNN.

“It’s never been about competing with those guys. It’s been more [about] co-existing and making our show the best it can possibly be.

“I think that speaks for itself as opposed to trying to get into some kind of petty battle. It doesn’t benefit us in any way and doesn’t interest us. I’ve never seen those shows in their entirety.”
