Last year, my son and I watched the vocal competition, The Voice, and it was one of our favorite shows. The Voice is hosted by Carson Daly and during the initial “blind auditions”, the coaches (superstars Adam Levine from Maroon 5, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton) have their backs to the contestants. Their decisions to move the contestant forward in the competition are based on the person’s voice only – since the coaches can’t see the contestant, there is no room for any preconceived notions based upon appearance. Once the coaches select their team, the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named The Voice – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.. Last year’s winner, Javier Colon, was one of our favorites from his very first audition, and we hear that this season’s talent is going to be amazing.
If you are a fan of The Voice and will be in Manhattan this Monday, January 30, visit Grand Central Terminal, Vanderbilt Hall (87 E. 42nd Street) between 1 and 7pm to have an opportunity to see the iconic coach’s chair and sit in it just like a coach, hit the button and make the chair spin around and light up “I Want You” just as the coaches do on the show. Each fan’s experience in the coach’s chair will be recorded then emailed, allowing it to be shared with friends and social media outlets and special song download cards and other giveaways will be distributed.
The Voice returns to NBC after the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5, 2012 (10-11 p.m E.T.) and airs every Monday thereafter (8-10 p.m. ET) with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s second season.
