Tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of The Voice on NBC at 9/8c. Four famous musician coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — 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.
