I know what you're thinking, another reality singing competition is just what DISH Network programming needs (insert sarcasm here). 'The Voice' on NBC promises to be less "pretentious" and more serious about the actual process of turning an unknown singer into a recording artist, with the help of four famous performers as the participants' coaches: Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine of Maroon 5. If anything, the new reality singing show will be entertaining seeing as notable reality TV show producer, Mark Burnett is also behind this new series; plus it will give 'American Idol' fans something to watch on Tuesday nights. The basic premise of the show is to have the coaches focus purely on the voice of the contestants, forcing them to all have their chairs turned away from the performers. If a celebrity coach likes what he/she hears, then he/she will turn their chair around and work it out with any other coach that turns around to have that performer on their team. If more than one celebrity coach turns around in favor of the performer, then the tables are turned and the performer gets to choose which celebrity coach he/she would like to work with. Not too many details have been revealed about the competition part of the show, after the celebrity artists have built their teams of outstanding performers who will later compete against each other. Carson Daly will host 'The Voice' while Tuesday's premiere will kick off with the celebrity coaches performing together on stage before taking to their backwards facing chairs. You can catch the premiere of NBC's 'The Voice,' on Tuesday, April 26 at 9pm ET in stunning HD on DISH Network.

Which do you think will be the better singing competition: X Factor, The Voice or American Idol? Will you watch The Voice?
