I am loving this new Judges’ lineup for Season 7 of The Voice. Are you?

New this season are Gwen Stefani and Pharell Williams replacing Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera.

I think the addition of these two new judges should provide some electric chemistry throughout the season, adding a heightened dimension to an already very popular show..

And, of course, we will be additionally entertained with returning judges, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, along with affable host, Carson Daly.

The Voice Premiere airs on Monday and Tuesday, September 22nd and 23rd, at 8:00 PM on NBC.

I am praying they have tweaked the format. So many great singers are sent home so quickly before anyone has a chance to really get to know and understand their personality and performing styles. Agree?
