"She consistently brought it performance after performance and she emotionally connected with America," executive producer Mark Burnett said. "I think she's really connected her heart with the viewers. The Voice is a very uplifting show and I think she's a very uplifting person."

May 23, 2007: To Know Her Is to Love Her

Everyone was in the house for the grand finale of American Idol, as Jordin and Blake opened the show with a long-awaited Beatles tune. "I Saw Her Standing There" was a premonition of things to come. We drifted quickly into a performance by the touring Gwen Stefani singing her song “4 in the Morning.” She looked and sounded fantastic. Red-carpet tidbits — there were lots of Idols both past and present.

Celebrity Duets: An Inside Look

Hal Sparks, Wayne Brady, Lucy Lawless and Carly Patterson, Celebrity Duets

You've seen them dance. You've seen them lose weight. You've even seen them ice-skate. Now it's time for celebrities to grab a mike and start singing.

The show (premiering Aug. 29) is hosted by Wayne Brady and features eight celebrity "nonsingers" — wrestling champion Chris Jericho, actress Lea Thompson, Queer Eye lifestyle expert Jai Rodriguez, Xena's Lucy Lawless, actor Cheech Marin, Olympian gymnast Carly Patterson, Fresh Prince's Alfonso Ribeiro and comedian Hal Sparks.
