‘The Voice’: New Coaches For Season 4

‘The Voice’: New Coaches And Season 4 Talent Preview (VIDEO).

NBC’s The Voice premieres this Monday with a two-hour episode followed by a one-hour episode on Tuesday, March 26.

On April 30 and May 7 the show will again feature a two-hour episode. Struggling in ratings, NBC is hoping The Voice will provide a boost.

The two new coaches, I’m predicting, may be just what NBC need to increase ratings. Usher is filling in for CeeLo Green and Shakira is filling in for Christina Aguilera. Both CeeLo and Christina are taking breaks from The Voice to focus on their own projects.

Personally, it will be nice to have two new coaches added to the mix. I was always one to believe that a change in cast wasn’t all bad.

Monday night’s The Voice opens with the entire cast of Season 3, including Carson Daly and Christina Milian standing on the stage lit with candles. Each member is holding placards with the names and ages of the victims of the Sandy Hill Elementary school shooting. They sing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah (one of my favorite songs).

If you want to see this, you may have to look hard for it. NBC isn’t showing it any longer and the only way I got to see it was because it was in my Hulu que and I know it’s on my DVR.

The Voice is now down to 3, yes three contestants. Only one of my final four, Terry McDermott, is still in the running. From the article (link) here, they’re predicting that Cassadee Pope will be the first female winner of The Voice.

According to the iTunes Top Singles, Terry McDermott’s single Broken Wings is #5 and Cassadee Pope’s single Cry is #1. In votes, she is beating Terry McDermott’s butt by the thousands. So I’m inclined to believe that she will be the first female winner of The Voice and that Blake will be a repeat winning coach. How exciting!

My Reasons for Watching “The Voice” – Reality Show #1

It’s not my hate for Simon Cowell (X Factor) or the fact that I play the office pool during American Idol (but don’t watch the show).

I was drawn to The Voice from the beginning probably due to my eclectic choice in music and my love for Maroon 5. I DON’T LISTEN to Britney Spears and I couldn’t tell you the name of a song by Demi Lovato.

I predicted that Javier Colon would win Season 1 of The Voice (and he did) and I’m predicting that Bryan Keith will win Season 3. I even tweeted Adam Levine and told him so.

I enjoy the chemistry between the judges on The Voice. I like hearing that Blake Shelton took Dia Frampton from Season 1 on tour with him and that Javier Colon was in South America recently with Maroon 5.

You don’t hear about those things coming out of the X Factor or American Idol camps. Mainly because the “star” judges on those panels are more interested in their 8-figure salaries than they are in the talent.

The Voice has pioneered a new way of auditioning in case you haven’t caught the show. The judges sit with their backs to the stage and all they hear is the … Voice. On Tuesday night a young man sang La Bamba entirely in Spanish and Blake Shelton was so excited he could hardly wait to hit his buzzer. Blake and CeeLo Green were fighting to be his coach. That’s not something you’ll see on X Factor or American Idol.

The Voice is still in the audition stages. The judges will have teams made up of 16 members this season. You can catch it on NBC Television or go here:
