Burbank, Jun 8: The hit NBC program "The Voice" has now entered the LIVE rounds. Finally audiences watching at home will have their chance to vote on who they think should be crowned, "The Voice."
Coach Christina Aguilera says she has been surprised by how much fun she is having on the show and the quality of people that she gets to work with everyday.
"Mark Burnett (producer) really put together a great panel of coaches and experienced judges and mentors who have run the gamut of massive touring, and album sales,
and Grammy's, and things like that. We have our own successes that we can bring to the table and share with all these amazingly raw talented people," she said.
"The Voice is about giving someone an opportunity to make it in the music business based on the simple idea of our four super star coaches identifying who they like just by their voice. Not knowing anything about them, they've never seen them, they don't know what they look like, they don't know how old they are. But, if they are moved by their initial performance, that's where our show starts," said host Carson Daly.
Former "American Idol" contestant, turned "The Voice" contestant, Frenchie Davis, couldn't help but compare the two shows but said the show has it's own unique qualities.
"It's special in that, you know, it's really hard for a singer to take criticism from someone who can't sing.
"That's hard, and so here on 'The Voice' where everyone, including the judges are singers, our feelings might get hurt but it's a lot easier to take that criticism because it's not just a non-singer with their arms crossed telling you how ghastly you are.
"But it's like a fellow artist saying, 'Hey I believe in you and this is where I think you can grow and this is how I think I can help you do that." AP
