Tonight the second episode of NBC’s The Voice season 2 airs and it is a 2 hour special. If last night’s show is any indication it is going to be a fantastic season. Stand by as we live blog the show tonight at 8PM with all the up-to-the-minute details!
Last season I did not watch The Voice and I did not know what I was missing until I tuned in last night and watched the show after the Super Bowl. If you tuned in you will agree the show is a borderline addictive singing competition; chances also are you got a taste of some of the season’s upcoming talent, some of which is quite amazing (though we’ll let you be the judge of that). If you missed the show you can catch our recap here and our review here. What did you think of the first episode of “The Voice”?
On tonight’s show the blind auditions continue and Prince will be coming to the voice. Not as a judge but he is the subject of a special melody that will be performed by the judges tonight. The melodies include Christina Aguilera doing “1999,” followed by Cee Lo Green’s “Little Red Corvette,” Adam Levine’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” and Blake Shelton’s “Kiss.” You don’t want to miss the show!
The Voice airs tonight between 8PM – 10PM EST and we will be live blogging the show with all the up-to-the-minute details, so come back to this spot and spend the evening with us. Refresh often to get the most current updates!
