'The Voice' Recap: Adam Lands His First-Ever Duo In 'Blind Auditions, Part 2'

March 27th, 2013 7:58am EDT
The Voice
After last night's much-hyped premiere, it's time to find more promising singers for Season 4 of The Voice. Who will earn a spot this time around?

The second round of blind auditions begins with another country singer, Tawnya Reynolds, who's been playing for more than a decade in Nashville but is in need of a breakthrough to further her career. Tawnya brings out "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys," and both Adam and Shakira warm to her near instantly. Even if it's not quite as great as when Mother of the Bride covered the song on TBS's Wedding Band. Since she is a country ...

TV Preview: 'The Voice' Season 4

March 25th, 2013 11:03am EDT
The Voice
Welcome to the new Voice - just as good as the old Voice.

The Voice is back for its fourth season, and it's come with much buzz over the arrival of Shakira and Usher, who are standing in for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green this time around. Everyone wants to know if the new foursome in the big red chairs will click like the old one, and the answer is a resounding yes. The Voice of season four is reminiscent of the Voice of season one: all the banter but without the moments of tension that raised some eyebrows in later cycles. This is not to detract from Aguilera and Green, who were goo...

Maroon 5 front man and The Voice coach Adam Levine turned 34 on Monday. The three-time Grammy winner remains one of the busiest people in music.

Ah, Valentine's Day. It's a holiday all about love. While it's generally taken to be reserved for that special someone in your life, there are other kinds of love, too - like showing some love for your favorite celebrities. Here's BFTV's list of the celebrities I've fallen in love with and why I want to give them a little extra appreciation this year. Not only are they talented at what they do, but they're also pretty fantastic people.

Jamie Bamber: I waited a couple of years to meet the Monday Mornings star, during which I heard from several mutual friends and fans...

DJ Josh LeCash Hits the Big Screen with 'Rebel Rebel Rebel'

February 10th, 2013 9:10am EST
Rebel Rebel Rebel
Josh LeCash is not your ordinary DJ. The Miami native has DJ'ed for the likes of Katy Perry and Adam Levine, and his straightforward, no-bull personality has made him a movie star as well. He's the subject of the documentary film Rebel Rebel Rebel, which won the top short doc prize at the Los Angeles Art House Film Festival and recently caused a buzz at Slamdance. BFTV checked in with Josh earlier this week - as he geared up to work Maroon 5's post-Grammy party - to get the 411 on his movie and what it's really like to be a top DJ.

His motivation to start his craft came from growing up nea...

2012 Celebrity Breakups

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
Every year some of our favorite famous couples decide it isn't working out for them anymore and they break up. Sometimes fans are surprised by the announcement, and other times we wonder why it didn't happen sooner.

One of the most shocking splits was Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The actress stunned fans over the summer when she announced her five-year marriage to Cruise was over, and she filed to legally end the union on June 28, citing "irreconcilable differences" for the split.

Katie will receive $400,000 a year in child support for the couple's daughter, Suri. The payments will con...

Hottest Guys of 2012
Who are the sexiest guys in music, film and television? We narrowed our picks down to 50 in our annual list, spotlighting those who made our hearts skip a beat when we watched them perform.

Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey bared quite a bit in "Magic Mike," while "The Avengers" actors got our blood flowing with their explosive action scenes.

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3's Final Battle Rounds (Part 6)

October 24th, 2012 9:00am EDT
Battle Rounds - Adriana Louise vs Jordan Pruitt
There's one last night of battles on The Voice, and just one steal left, which belongs to Christina Aguilera. This is crunch time...for this phase of the top-rated singing competition, anyway. So let's get right to it, shall we?

Tuesday night begins with Christina's team, specifically Adriana Louise and Jordan Pruitt, who get handed Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold." Jordan confides that she's surprised to see advisor Billie Joe Armstrong because he's so different from Christina. Billie Joe instantly picks up on Jordan's "professional" side, while Christina thinks Adriana is "holding ...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 3 Battle Rounds, Part 5

October 23rd, 2012 9:00am EDT
The Voice
It's a new week of battle rounds on The Voice, with only two steals left to save hopeful artists who don't win their head-to-head matchups.

A shortened Monday night show - just one hour instead of two - opens with Team Cee Lo: it's Alexis Marceaux versus another returning singer, Daniel Rosa. Cee Lo has given them Adam Lambert's "Whataya Want From Me," which Nakia performed in season one, and he knocked it out of the park back then, so these two have no small quest in front of them. Advisor Rob Thomas cautions Alexis to relax on her diction, and notes Daniel's "confidence issues." ...

Battle Rounds Liz Davis, Nicole Johnson
Things are getting thorny in the battle rounds on The Voice, as with only three steals left in play after last night's episode (two for Christina and one for Blake), it's soon to be back to "win or go home" for the artists. Not to mention: are any more battles going to be truncated for time like they were last Tuesday night?

This Tuesday night opens with Team Blake, as Liz Davis is matched with Nicole Johnson on a song that Blake knows well - his wife Miranda Lambert's hit "Baggage Claim." It's amusing to watch Blake quip that he's "met [Miranda] once or twice." Team Blake mentor Mich...

The Voice
Team Adam's Melanie Martinez impressed the panel with her battle round performance on last week's ​The Voice​ - and recently, she spoke about working with her Grammy-winning coach, Adam Levine.

“I think that I’ve really grown as an artist, being on his team. He’s given me some great advice and I gained a lot of confidence, even though we haven’t had as much time because the show works fast,” Melanie (pictured above front left, with - from left - teammate Caitlin Michele, Voice bandleader Paul Mirkovich, Levine and advisor Mary J.

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 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"

October 3rd, 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

September 26th, 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, ...

Call it full-service coaching: Adam Levine has signed Tony Lucca, the Team Adam finalist from Season 2 of The Voice, to his 222 Records label. The news was announced today via press release, after Adam mentioned it during the third-season premiere of The Voice on September 10.

"It's cool to see how a gut instinct can manifest itself in such unimaginable ways," Tony said in the press release. "Working with Adam on The Voice truly was an opportunity of a lifetime. Now we'll get a chance to take that opportunity to the next level. Thinking back to the blind auditions, Adam said he thought I...

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...

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

September 13th, 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 - 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 ...

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 - 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...

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?

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?
