Backed By Star Power NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Premieres Tuesday on DISH Network

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?

    I quickly became a huge fan of your show “The Voice” but after the closing show I have a very bad taste in mouth. Not happy with the close of the show where everyone was on stage and the camera slowly pans the lineup….when it came to Cee Lo Green his actions where very raw and inappropriate for viewers of ANY age. Where is your censorship? Shame on him and shame on you for allowing it. I work with the public and spoke to a lot of my members about the issue. We went so far as to put out a survey to our 6 thousand members about it. So many had seen it and were offended and had explaining to do to their children… 98% felt they deserved an apology from Cee Lo before they will watch the show again. (this is Boca Raton not the bible belt) Even SNL doesn’t show something like that! You are trying to be cool and hip with your show and its a good one but there is a line that should not be crossed and you crossed it. Hope you show some class and correct your stars. Sue Rue
