is back for it second season tonight after the Super Bowl and this season is even better than last year’s groundbreaking first one. A few weeks ago the four coaches and the host spoke to the press at NBC’s TCA Winter Press Tour Day and they each gave a reason why you should watch the Monday night singing competition show.
Christina Aguilera – Yeah. Absolutely. I think that all of us do. All four of us do. You can’t help but get really engaged in being a part of these people’s lives as their coach and their mentor and spending so much time with them. I mean, I think there’s something to be said about the fact that their whole lives — it’s a pretty magical thing to be a part of someone’s whole journey. You know, these are real artists. These are real people with real dreams, and it’s — you’re cradling it in your hands, and so I think we all sort of pulled a level of responsibility for that and take it very seriously.
Carson Daly – Let me just say one thing about that before you guys start, just because I was so early on season two with the talent that came through, and my observation quickly was that season one hit the air, and people aspiring to be in this space didn’t really know what to make of “The Voice,” where it sat with the other music competition shows, thought they knew. Didn’t want to sit in the cattle call. But what happened, the level of talent season one was so high that it’s appeared that we went in early for season two, that working musicians, people — things that you’ve done, the van hit the roads, working the gigs, maybe sign a small label. People who really want to make it, who never would have stood in line for any other show, came out and sought us out for season two. So the level potentially of talent for season two — whatever you thought of season one, this is way, way, way higher than that.
Cee Lo Green – Hi. My name is Cee Lo Green. I’m very happy to be here.
Adam Levine – Yeah. And all four of us are singers. At the end of the day, that’s probably the thing that’s most — that differentiates us the most is that we all sing. It’s our craft, all four of us. That alone is a unique element.
Blake Shelton – I don’t think you have to tell somebody that they suck when you know exactly what was wrong with the performance. When you can actually pinpoint whatever that thing is, you don’t have to go, “That’s terrible. That sucked.” You can go, “Here you were pitchy, and here’s why, because maybe you sang this song in the wrong key,” or — you don’t have do go, “I don’t really know why you suck.”
And I will give you a sixth reason to watch The Voice, it is the best singing competition show on television by far. The voices on this show blow all the other ones away.
