12 Episodes 2011 - 2011
The first season of "The Voice" introduces TV audiences to a new kind of singing competition. Based on "The Voice of Holland," this NBC reality singing contest puts unsigned talent from all over the U.S. in front of a panel of four judges in blind auditions. If the talent gets picked by a judge, that judge will act as their coach until they win or get eliminated. The Top 16 talents proceed to the live shows, where their fate is decided not just by their coaches but also through audience votes. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, CeeLo Green, and Christina Aguilera sit in the judges' chairs for the first season. Judges' advisors for the first season are Adam Blackston, Reba McEntire, Monica, and Sia Furler. Alison Haislip serves as social media and backstage correspondent, while Carson Daly hosts the show.
