'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Battle Rounds, Part 2

10/10/2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice
Picking up from last night's action, The Voice returns Tuesday with another set of battle rounds. After stretching six battles over last night's two-hour show, we get five jam-packed into this one-hour episode: three full duets and snippets from two more.

Team Cee Lo starts the evening, as Cody Belew takes on Domo, to the tune of Lady Gaga's "Telephone." Cee Lo thinks the song will allow them to do both singing and choreography at the same time, and therefore he can see which of them is "the total package." Advisor Rob Thomas gives Cody some pointers while Domo's conversation with...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Battle Rounds, Part 1

10/9/2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice Battle Rounds
With the Top 64 chosen, now it's time to get into competition on The Voice. With the addition of "The Steal" this year, it's going to be messier than ever before, too. Let's go to battle!

Tonight we open with Blake and his advisor Michael Buble, who quips, "Million bucks says they don't know me." Yeah, right, Michael. It's Team Blake's Casey Muessigmann and Terry McDermott who are going to head-to-head first (note the Street Fighter style graphics that are new this season!) Blake's reasoning for putting them together is that they're both "loud, powerful" dudes who auditioned with c...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Blind Auditions, Part 8 and the "Best Of"

10/3/2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice
We're a quarter of the way through Season 3! Monday night was the final evening of blind auditions on The Voice, with each of the coaches looking for two more singers to fill out their sixteen-member teams.

With things winding down, things are really being edited to be as dramatic as possible. We have Adam's "you're the best singer we've ever had" soundbite in the opening package, when we know that he really said Gracia Harrison was the best country singer the show has ever seen. Then there's Cee Lo saying he believes that the winner will come from Team Red Zone - if he'd said anyt...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Blind Auditions. Part 7

9/26/2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice
As we head toward the finish of blind auditions, Tuesday proved to be a big day for The Voice. Against stiff competition, The Voice had less overall viewers than ABC's Dancing With The Stars (11.93 to 14.58), but won the coveted 18-49 demographic - and an expected renewal for seasons four and five from NBC. (This isn't really news given that the announcement of coach changes referenced both seasons four and five. But it's nice to hear formally.) So what's the show going to do on such a busy night? Continue filling out the teams, of course!

With very few spots left - two on Team Adam, ...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Blind Auditions, Part 6

9/25/2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice
We're into our third week of Season 3 blind auditions on The Voice, and three weeks could be too much. We're averaging one audition per each segment of the show, which seems to be stretching as far as we can go. Despite the pacing, there are some pretty talented folks - and one old friend - in Monday's batch of hopefuls.

Catching up from last week, Team Adam has 11 members so far, Team Blake has 7, Team Cee Lo has 10, and Team Christina has 11. And, in case you missed it last night, The Voice went home empty-handed at the Emmys, losing Outstanding Reality Series to The Amazing Ra...

Shakira and Usher to Replace Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green on 'The Voice'

9/18/2012 5:15am EDT
Christina Aguilera
Putting an end to recent media speculation, NBC has confirmed via press release that two of The Voice's coaches will be leaving following the currently-airing Season 3 - but that both are anticipated to return to the show in the future.

Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will not participate in Season 4 of the show, which is expected to air in Spring 2013, in order to resume their music careers.

Aguilera was quoted in the release as saying, "Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take sea...

'The Voice' News Roundup: 'Voice' Beats X Factor, Plus New Interviews With Season 3's Artists

9/13/2012 2:39pm EDT
The Voice
Right now, this picture is accurate. NBC may have been criticized for clearly counter-programming The Voice against rival The X Factor, but the Peacock got the last laugh as Voice beat Factor in the shows' first head-to-head battle this season. In last night's 8-9 PM hour, Voice delivered 10.66 million viewers to Factor's 7.45.

The X Factor was also defeated in its second hour by the finale of NBC's America's Got Talent, which earned just over 11 million viewers to the 9.49 of Factor.

However, 9.49 is still an impressive amount of viewers that any broadcast network would be happy to hav...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Blind Auditions, Part 3

The Voice - Season 3
Welcome to the end of The Voice Season 3 Premiere Week! How time doesn't fly when you're on the hunt for the best voice in America. Tonight, Adam has 14 spots on his team left to fill, Blake has 12, Cee Lo has 13 and Christina has 12. Let's laugh at how the "previously on" makes Adam look like the last kid picked on the playground at school.

First on deck tonight is Samuel Mouton, who sings Bob Marley's "Redemption Song," getting Adam, Cee Lo, and Christina's attention, in that order. One thinks Cee Lo will be naturally intrigued since Samuel likes cooking. Christina wants to know ...

The Voice - Season 3
First things first: today is the anniversary of a national tragedy, and that's something we'll never forget. Yet as somber as the occasion is, we've got another hour's worth of The Voice blind auditions to get to, and darned if they don't provide at least a little bit of a morale boost. It's uplifting to see more hopeful artists get a shot at realizing their dreams.

Picking up where last night left off, each of our coaches is trying to fill 14 open spaces on their team, all four having selected two artists on Monday. The first artist of the night is Adriana Louise, who tells a har...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Blind Auditions, Part 1

The Voice - Season 3
Aside from a little case of deja vu, it feels pretty good to have The Voice back on our airwaves. Season 3 starts with our four superstar coaches taking the stage yet again, this time for a rendition of the Rolling Stones' classic "Start Me Up" - which A) sounds great and B) is a reminder that no other celeb panel on TV has the street cred that these folks do. Although I could do without the confetti. But let's get to the competition, shall we?

The coaches have 16 spots to fill on their teams this time, up again from last season's 12 (though they're going to be going into live shows w...

Countdown to 'The Voice' Season 3: What Should You Watch For?

9/10/2012 10:30am EDT
The Voice
It's the day we've all been waiting for (since May, anyway): the premiere of Season 3 of The Voice. There's a lot to talk about this time around, as we're still catching our breath from the end of Season 2. This is the season that could either be an incredible boost to NBC, or we could be talking about it as the season that didn't quite work. There's only one way to find out, and that's by tuning in and seeing what happens.

Here are six things to watch for in this season of The Voice:

1. The ratings. How will The Voice perform in the fall? Not only is it going head-to-head with FOX...

Countdown to 'The Voice': Where Are Season 2's Finalists Now?

The Voice
A new season of NBC's The Voice is only one week away. As you prepare to meet the artists of Season 3, Big Red Chairs is looking back at the singers who captured your attention in Season 2 earlier this year.

Season 2 was won by Blake Shelton's finalist, Jermaine Paul. The runner-up was Team Cee Lo's Juliet Simms, followed by Team Adam's Tony Lucca in third place, and Team Christina's Chris Mann coming in fourth. But what's happened to them in the just under four months since we last saw them?

Winner Jermaine Paul was signed to a record deal with Universal Republic Records, through which...

Countdown to 'The Voice': Where Are Season 1's Finalists Now?

The Voice
A new season of NBC's The Voice is only two weeks away. As you prepare to meet the artists of Season 3, Big Red Chairs is looking back at the singers who started it all in the show's first season, back before it was an Emmy-nominated smash hit.

The Voice premiered in April 2011 with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera mentoring teams of eight vocalists each in a bid to find "The Voice." The catch: they selected these eight artists from blind auditions, making their choices solely on what they heard by pressing a big red button (as above with Green, lef...

The Voice has made significant changes for its upcoming third season, and producers are talking about the biggest change of all - new coaches - according to executive producer Mark Burnett, who addressed the media alongside coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera earlier this week.

According to Big Red Chairs: After NBC exec Bob Greenblatt talked earlier this year about wanting to incorporate the coaches' signature chairs into the battle round phase of competition, the show has done just that. In a new twist called "the steal," during the battles, the arti...

Sparkle arrives in theaters today, and two-time Academy Award-nominated costume designer Ruth Carter is the woman responsible for the styles you'll see on the likes of Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston. She recently spoke with me about what goes into costume design, her next big project, and what it's like to design for someone as unique as Cee Lo Green.

Cee-Lo Green's 'Loberace' Show In Las Vegas Gets Postponed

Cee Lo Green
Singer Cee Lo Green has pushed back the opening of his upcoming Las Vegas residency so he can focus on his reality TV show The Voice.

The Crazy hit-maker was due to stage his first performance of Cee Lo Green Presents Loberace at the Planet Hollywood resort on August 29th , but he's now postponed the show's launch due to his hectic shooting schedule for the TV program, which is due to premiere on September 10th.

Animal Rights Activists Advise Cee Lo Green To Give Up The Bird

7/12/2012 2:19pm EDT
The Voice
Officials at an animal rights group have pleaded with R&B star Cee Lo Green to find a better pet for his appearances on TV talent show The Voice, insisting Moluccan cockatoos aren't happy as pampered feathered friends.

The Forget You singer has traded in his white cat, Purrfect, for the bird, which will sit on his shoulder during the audition rounds of the upcoming season of the show - but the idea doesn't sit well with experts.

Born Free USA spokeswoman Monica Engebretson tells the Globe tabloid that Green should have done his homework before adopting the cockatoo as his sidekick.


Adam Levine & Christina Aguilera Had 'Rough Time' On 'The Voice'

6/27/2012 4:14pm EDT
The Voice
It wasn't all roses and sunshine behind the scenes when "The Voice" first debuted. Adam Levine and his co-judge Christina Aguilera didn't get along when they first met, the rocker reveals.

Last year Levine and Aguilera joined Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton on the hit reality show, but the pop star and Maroon 5 frontman hit the headlines for the wrong reasons following speculation of a bust-up behind-the-scenes.

Although they produced hit song "Moves Like Jagger" together, the rumors persisted.

Levine reveals that when they first started working together they butted heads, but they worked...

Miranda Lambert Hits Back At Eric Church Over His 'American Idol Gone Mad' Remark

Miranda Lambert has taken aim at her former tour mate Eric Church after he openly criticized reality TV shows for churning out so many country singers and compared the genre to "American Idol gone mad."

Church slammed the industry during a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, claiming too many amateurs were being handed record deals simply from appearing on TV talent competitions like Idol and The Voice, on which Lambert's husband Blake Shelton is a mentor.

He said, "It's become American Idol gone mad. Honestly, if Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green f**king turn around in a red chai...

Christina Aguilera Denies Snubbing Justin Bieber On 'The Voice' (Video)

Christina Aguilera The Voice
Christina Aguilera has laughed off reports she snubbed Justin Bieber when he appeared on her show "The Voice on Tuesday."

Bieber debuted a sneak peak of his new video for "Boyfriend" and then jumped off stage to greet the judges - Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Aguilera. After he hugged the blonde starlet, her smile turned into a look of disgust.

When news of her ice cold reaction spread on the internet, Christina tweeted, "Haha! The media loves spinning stories...Can't a girl have a little Bieber Fever after getting kissed by the Biebs?"

Bieber Appears, Ashley De La Rosa & RaeLynn Eliminated On 'The Voice'

4/18/2012 6:38pm EDT
Ashley De La Rosa The Voice
On Tuesday night's episode of "The Voice" Christina Aguilera was forced to make another difficult elimination decision. The previous night she stirred up some controversy by surprisingly kicking off favorite Jesse Campbell.

Last night, she knocked Ashley De La Rosa out of the competition while saving Lindsey Pavao because her performance of Mike Posner's "Please Don't Go" made the blonde pop starlet cry.

Meanwhile, on Team Blake Shelton, RaeLynn sang the country song, "If I Die Young," by the Band Perry. But it wasn't quite good enough for Shelton, who gave her the boot and elected to sav...

'The Voice' Performance Show: Who Was Instantly Eliminated?

4/17/2012 8:00am EDT
The Voice
The producers of NBC's The Voice aren't making it easy: on Monday's performance show, an "instant elimination" forced two coaches to chop two artists before America's vote.

Neither the singers nor the coaches were fans of the surprise axe. Blake Shelton remarked that if he knew who was responsible for the idea, he'd kick them - and Team Blake's Erin Willett was quick to concur.

"I'm still unhappy with it. I think that's the worst thing we've done," said Team Christina's Chris Mann after the show.

Perhaps the only one to see any merit in the idea was Adam Levine, who remarked that it at...

It was decision time again on NBC's The Voice, this time for Team Adam and Team Cee Lo. Who did America save and who sung their last song Tuesday night?

For Team Adam, the bottom three were a trio of lovely ladies: Kim Yarbrough, Katrina Parker and Karla Davis. It was Katrina's heartbreaking rendition of No Doubt's "Don't Speak" that won her Adam's one reprieve.

On Team Cee Lo, facing elimination were Tony Vincent, Cheesa, and Erin Martin. Cheesa delivered a powerful version of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" that earned her a second chance, despite Cee Lo first saying that his head was l...
