In the season two premiere, the “blind auditions” are held in front of the celebrity panel of coaches including, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton, who each hand pick 12 vocalists for their individual teams.
The strongest vocalists from across the country compete to be selected by one of the coaches and fight for a chance to win the title of being named “The Voice.” Christina Milian (“Be Cool”) joins as Social Media Correspondent and Carson Daly (“Last Call with Carson Daly”) hosts.
If you have not watched the show before it all starts with the Blind Auditions. During the blind auditions the judges do not see the contestants – all decisions are made by hearing their voice and not seeing them. If a judge likes a contestants voice he presses a button to select the contestant. for his team. If more than one judge chooses the contestant it is the contestant who makes the decision of which team to be on.
Once the audition phase is finished the judges work with their teams and pass on the knowledge of their success in the battle round. Team members will face off against each other and the judges will decide which team member moves ahead. At the end of the battle episodes the strongest members will move ahead to the live performance shows. The person who wins the voice will win $100,000 and a recording contract.
It all goes down tonight right after the Super Bowl and we will be live blogging the show with all the up-to-the-minute results. So make sure to come back to this spot and spend the evening with us. Refresh often to get the most current results!
