Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Usher will each select singers to mentor into artists during the blind auditions. Once they have their teams, the star coaches will bring in their personal songwriters, producers, and high-powered friends to help their teams evolve. Ultimately, America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize.
Carson Daly hosts the show’s innovative format that features three stages of competition. The winner will be named “The Voice" -- and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract and $100,000. “The Voice” is a presentation of Talpa Productions, Mark Burnett and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who will executive-produce along with Burnett and Audrey Morrissey.

Living in Los Angeles, one knows that there are several things this town has an abundance of. Sure, there is too much smog and traffic, but one of the good things about L.A. is there is no shortage of live music venues. From the slew of clubs on Hollywood's Sunset Strip to downtown's L.A. Live venue, Los Angelenos have a wide variety of places to check out live music. Last week, CityWalk, Universal City's sprawling outdoor mall and entertainment complex, added its own live music arena, 5 Towers. The state-of-the-art stage was put to great use right off the bat, with a FREE concert by none other than music sensation and The Voice judge Cee-Lo Green.
The Voice also had another presence at the Thursday night event, with Season 1 winner Javier Colon on hand to officially "plug in" this massive 5 Towers stage, which practically dwarfs the movie theater right behind it. It didn't take long for the massive crowd to gather around this state-of-the-art stage, and they soon became restless for Cee-Lo Green, chanting his name before his eventual arrival on stage.Read More
