Don't put those big red buttons away so fast!
The blind auditions are officially over on The Voice, but as the battle rounds began Monday, producers introduced a new twist that put the buttons — and more importantly, the battles between the coaches — back in action. But did the highly anticipated steal twist actually work...
American Idol singer Frenchie Davis. Mickey Mouse Club member Tony Lucca. The Voice has always been about giving talented singers a second chance at fame. Now, the show is giving its singers another second chance with a twist that could shake the game up in a big way: the Steal.
In the battle rounds, which kick off Monday at 8/7c on NBC, the coaches will have the opportunity to press their buttons once again — this time to steal a singer from another coach after that singer has lost their battle. "I have to say as a naturalized American, what the country is all about is second chances. And this is a second chance for people," executive producer Mark Burnett tells TVGuide.com. "When they hit those buttons and the lights come on, it's like, 'Wow!' I've been doing this long enough that I know when I see something magical happen."

NBC's The Voice threw down the gauntlet when it expanded its planned two-night Monday-Tuesday premiere to a third night on Wednesday, which puts it head-to-head with the first night of The X Factor's two-night premiere.

Khloe Kardashian may be adding another TV show to her resume. The reality star is reportedly the front-runner to host The X Factor, TMZ reports.
According to the site, the reality star is the lead contender out of all the hopeful hosts. Producers, including Simon Cowell, who has said he wants two hosts — a man and a woman — reportedly think Kardashian is the most sensible pick since judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato also share Kardashian's young fan base.
Jimmy Kimmel points to an enormous new treadmill in his office. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host recently installed the contraption, which sports a large tabletop to conduct business while exercising, and has taken to walking on it while working. "I read somewhere that sitting all day can cut 15 or 20 years off your life," he explains. "It's worse than smoking. We weren't meant to sit this much."

"Season 3's bigger in every way," host Carson Daly explains in this exclusive promo for The Voice — and he isn't exaggerating!
When the hit singing competition show returns next week, the number of contestants on each team is jumping from 12 to a whopping 16! That's double the number of singers per coach when the first season premiered in 2011.
NBC's The Voice is probably best known for its blind auditions — and, of course, its big, red spinning chairs, which helped turn the singing competition into a ratings phenomenon. But NBC also realized last year that once the chairs stop spinning, viewer interest in The Voice starts to dip.
Meeting with reporters Sunday evening at his lavish beachside home, executive producer Mark Burnett (sitting next to coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee-Lo Green) revealed a new twist that he believes will carry the drama of The Voice's blind auditions into its battle rounds.
