If you’re a fan of American Idol or just enjoy a good singing competition then you might the enjoy the new show called “The Voice” that will be airing on NBC tonight. From the previews I’ve seen, yes, it is yet another singing competition that some are already calling an American Idol knock off but with a different twist. I don’t see that at all.
In this competition, the singers will be rated first with their backs turned to the star studded panel that includes Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. I like this concept because they initially judge them by The Voice and not by appearance.
So is that to say we should watch with our eyes closed in fairness?
If a judge likes what they hear they push a button, then spin around to get their first look at the singer. That judge will then mentor that singer in the future rounds. If more than one judge pushes their button and spins around the singer gets to choose who they want as their judge.
The show overall sounds like a very interested concept. Do you think the show has what it takes to be a hit or the making of a disaster?
Tune into The Voice starting Tuesday night at 9PM on NBC.
