“The Voice” Returns For Season 5

The Voice Season 5 Promo

The Voice returns on September 23rd! Raise your hand if you’re excited. Did you do it? Ok, good!

The original gang is back together for Season 5… Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, & CeeLo Green all return to their awesomely cool spin chairs.

NBC also just announced the teams’ advisors for this cycle. Music legend Cher will assist Blake, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder will join Adam, Ed Sheeran will work with Christina, and Miguel will team up with CeeLo.

Shelton has won the past three season of The Voice. The only other coach to take home a win is Levine for Season 1. Can Blake do it again?!

Tune into NBC on Sept. 23rd for the new season of The Voice.

And in the meantime, check out this hilarious promo:

Recap: The Voice – Episode 3: Boybanders, Mamas and Domo, Oh My!

Voice judges
First off, NBC, THREE nights in a row? I love Adam, Christina, Blake and CeeLo as much as the next person, but three in a row was a bit much.

Our first singer of the night is Samuel Mouton, a guy who cooks pizzas and washes dishes in Colorado, but hopefully not at the same time. He looks like a dirty skateboarding, short-haired Shaun White-type, but then opens his mouth and sounds like Bob Marley. It’s an odd disconnect as he sings “Redemption Song,” but Adam is the first to turn around, followed quickly by CeeLo and Christina. It’s an easy choice for Samuel, who joins Team Adam.

Next up is Chris Trousdale, a very pretty boy who was formerly a member of the boy band Dreamstreet. Don’t judge me, but I’m pretty sure I once saw Dreamstreet in concert. Anyway, Chris was basically the JC Chasez to Jesse McCartney’s Justin Timberlake. Unlike JC, however, his voice is surprisingly weak and shaky and we learn that he now works in a Sushi restaurant. Also, for a former boybander, he made a terrible song choice with “Glad You Came” by 2012 boy band, The Wanted. Although none of the judges turn around for Chris, he does get Blake Shelton on stage to “moonwalk” in his cowboy boots. I’m sure that Gif is all over Tumblr by now.
 

The Voice Earns 4 Emmy Nominations

Congratulations to Blake Shelton and everyone at NBC’s The Voice! They’ve racked up four Emmy nominations at this year’s award show. It’s the first Emmy nomination for Blake, who celebrated in his own special way on Twitter earlier:


 

What’s made it interesting is that The Voice beat out American Id0l in one category – for Best Competition Reality Show, who didn’t even get a nomination in the category. Looks like our prediction from earlier this year of The Voice becoming the new King of reality tv may be right on. The other three categories the show racked up nominations in are for: Outstanding Art Direction For Variety Or Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Hairstyling For A Multi-Camera Series Or Special, and, Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media – Enhancement To A Television Program or Series.

The 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 23rd live from the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles on ABC. Good luck to The Voice!
