NBC-TV will debut a new talent show, "The Voice," which airs on TUESDAY night at 9p. Based on a Dutch TV show of the same name, CBS RADIO Top 40 KAMP/LOS ANGELES morning host CARSON DALY will serve as host, with CHRISTINA AGUILERA, CEE LO GREEN, MAROON 5's ADAM LEVINE and BLAKE SHELTON, involved as judges and vocal coaches.
The twist here, according to THEREPUBLIC.COM, is in the opening round, the judges turn their backs to a performer they can't see. if they approve of a performance, the judge(s) press a button and turn around. If they all turn around, the singer gets to choose one of the judges to be his or her coach.
Eventually, each judge will coach eight singers and train them for the next performance round, where some of the singers will be eliminated. That will lead to the final round, where the audience votes for the winner, who gets a UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC record deal and $100,000.
