With only five weeks to go till the premiere of NBC’s new singing talent competition The Voice, the promo has kicked into high gear. Last week a press conference for the series was held in Los Angeles, which gave the world its first glimpse at recently-signed judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton together. Now head below to catch the first commercial featuring the famous crew with host Carson Daly.
Cee Lo’s Grammy-winning hit “Forget You” plays in the background of the commercial as Daly and each of the judges go out of their way to give their take on why The Voice will be different from other singing competition shows like, oh, we don’t know, American Idol.
“The biggest difference between this show and all of the other vocal competition shows is that it’s a blind audition,” says occasional nudist Adam Levine in the spot. And what exactly is a blind audition, you ask?
Cee Lo explains that the judges’ backs will be turned to the stage while the contestants audition. “We get to concentrate on nothing but the voice,” Xtina chimes in.
“Remember the ’70s? There were some sketchy-looking people that had gorgeous voices,” Levine adds.
