The Voice UK is back!
Having undergone a coach overhaul (which saw Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue depart the show), the BBC1 hit welcomes Pop superstar Kylie Minogue to the judging panel alongside Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson for its third outing. The pair join original “coaches” will.i.am and Tom Jones.
Currently in the “Blind Auditions” phase of the competition, you can check out episode 1′s contestant’s below…

Tessanne Chin has been crowned the season 5 winner of NBC’s ‘The Voice’.
The big-voiced songstress rocked the competition as part of ‘Team Adam’. The Jamaica-born singer has seen her fair share of shine prior to ‘The Voice’ as she’s opened for the likes of Gladys Knight and Patti Labelle, but it was the NBC-hosted reality talent singing show that has made Chin a household name.
See her Celine Dion-assisted performance of ‘Love Can Move Mountains’ from tonight’s finale…

American Idol, X Factor, The Voice, Sunday’s Best, Duets, Making the Band, Sing-Off, and Major & Minors are just a few of the recognizable titles of singing competitions that have graced (or disgraced) television over the past decade or so.
With its modern-day format pioneered by the FOX-aired ‘Idol’ to once record ratings (though ‘Live at the Apollo’ is the true grandfather of the genre), the last few years have seen a steadily declining interest in the singing competition themed reality show – despite reigniting interest in some of music’s top stars (see: Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, etc).
Until…NBC’s ‘The Voice’. But, even with its winning ratings, it has yet to produce a quality star in three seasons:

The countdown to season 4 of The Voice is officially on!
Joining the existing cast, new coaches Usher and Shakira show that they mean business in this newly released promo snap for the NBC show, which returns in March.
As reported, the dynamic duo replace departing judges Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green who are taking a leave of absence from the series – which now airs twice yearly (Spring and Fall cycles). Both Aguilera and Green are expected back for this year’s latter season. Although, with so little being guaranteed in this industry, it’d arguably be better to first see them back in their seats before taking their pencilled-in returns at face value. Put simply, we’ll believe it when we see it!

Season 3 of The Voice may have wrapped just a few weeks ago, however production for season 4 is already underway!
The hit NBC show, which now airs twice yearly (Spring and Fall cycles), is welcoming Pop forces Usher and Shakira to its panel of Coaches.
Indeed, as earlier reported, the pair have been tapped to replace departing judges Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera – who are taking a season (or so) off to re-engage with their musical mainstays.
With the New Year upon us and the show’s March return looming, producers have today unveiled new promotional shots for the new panel.
Check them out above and below…
Randomness: Interestingly, Shakira is heavily pregnant with her first child. And while the Columbian star is reportedly due any day now, it’ll certainly be interesting to see how this factors into the upcoming series. For, though premiering on March 25th, filming is either underway already or will be in the next few weeks.

After many weeks aboard NBC’s top rated talent show ‘The Voice’, tonight finally saw Cassadee Pope crowned winner! Indeed, beating out a host of talented hopefuls on the Carson Daly-hosted hit showing, Pope will walk away with a cool $100,000 grand prize and a record deal with Universal Republic.
Much to the dismay of TeamXtina (Christina Aguilera), Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine‘s teams, TeamBlake (Blake Shelton) takes the crown yet again.
Congratulations are certainly in order as we look forward to what she’ll be serving up in the future!
