NBC’s giving The Voice as good a premiere spot as the returning series can likely get, airing Season 2’s first episode following the Super Bowl early next month. While those of us who already love the show will have one more reason to keep NBC on that night, hopefully the post-game airing will draw in even more viewers (who will return for later episodes).
We have some videos promoting the series’ return, all of which focus on the Blind Auditions process, which is arguably the best part about the format of NBC’s singing competition. As the four “judges” are actually mentors, the audition process is set up so that they hear the singing hopefuls before they see them. Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton each sit with their backs facing the contestant. As they listen to the audition, they can choose to turn their chair around, which is their way of saying “I want you!,” meaning they want to work with that contestant. But it’s the contestant that makes the final decision, assuming more than one chair turns around. If none of the mentors turn around, the contestant is out of the running.
The first video below is more of a trailer, which gives us a glimpse of the Blind Auditions.
For a better look at the kind of talent that will be featured on the show this season, check out these clips. They are spoilery in that we see the contestants sing and get to see which judges want them, but both cut off just before the contestant makes their choice.
The Voice Season 2 premieres Sunday, February 5 (10-11 p.m. ET - time approximate following Super Bowl) on NBC.
