The Voice Season 2 Premiere Review

Viewers that kept their televisions on NBC after the Giants’ Super Bowl victory were treated to a great opening episode of Season 2 of The Voice. I watched the first season of the show and really enjoyed the features of The Voice that distinguish it from other reality show/performance competitions. I like that viewers are not bogged down with several episodes of horrible auditions that seem so contrived, it is hard to believe that the person is not a professional actor or someone purposely planted by producers. I also like the blind audition concept. In an idea world, the most successful performers would be those that are actually talented.

At times, he will trade in the thinly veiled to the outright overt remark.
