As CeeLo Green says in this just-released trailer for the second season of NBC's The Voice, "The world will definitely be watching." That's probably not much of an exaggeration, considering the show is premiering right after the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5. Watch the trailer here:
The trailer doesn't offer any specifics about the new season, but it reminds us why this singing competition is different from the others. "The blind auditions," CMA Award winner Blake Shelton is heard saying. "It's like Christmas morning, man. You're just sitting there and you have no idea what's about to happen on that stage behind you."
Then Christina Aguilera's voice chimes in: "You're just waiting on pins and needles for what those first few notes sound like." Adam Levine and Green both speak without being seen as well. Because…get it? That's what the essence of the voice is. Just…the voice.
It's been reported that executive producer Mark Burnett has tweaked the show a little for its second bow. He's lengthened the blind audition rounds, and increased the number of contestants that each coach will mentor, from eight to 12. And Aguilera has promised a "kickass" group performance on the show's opening night.
