Not only did NBC’s The Voice open to huge ratings, but they also plan on expanding their star-studded judging and mentoring team.
Earlier today, NBC announced that Reba McEntire, Monica, Sia and music producer Adam Blackstone have joined the series as new advisors who will help “judges” Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in the “battle” rounds.
It appears that McEntire will be partnering with Shelton, Monica with Green and Aguilera will be teaming up with Sia. Levine and Blackstone will be helping their team.
At this rate, pretty soon every known artist on the globe will be a judge or mentor and there will be no one left to entertain the masses – except the unknown artists being discovered by them on all of these reality shows. ( if you can get your head around this last statement, then you are permitted to drive a car!)
The Voice debuted on Tuesday to huge ratings, averaging 11.8 million viewers and a 5.1 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.
It was the highest-rated series debut since CBS’ Undercover Boss early last year.
The blind auditions continue on The Voice next Tuesday from 9-11 p.m. with the following episodes airing after The Biggest Loser at 10 p.m.
This show is going for broke. I honestly had no idea how this show would pan out but it looks like the time is ripe for something new and exciting. The Voice might just become The Next Best Thing in vocal competitions.
What do you think? Is there room for two vocal competitions or do you think Simon Cowell’s The X-Factor will blow them both out of the water?
