NBC's "The Voice" singing competition usually begins at mid-season, but this year, they're kicking off the fall in a big way. Coaches Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton will be back -- along with host Carson Daly and social media correspondent Christina Milian. Additionally, the show is (of course) keeping the trademark blind auditions as is... but as executive producer Mark Burnett confirmed at a press conference at his Malibu home on Sunday, there will be some major changes. First of all, "The Voice" is kicking up the tension in the Battle Rounds.

Rather than judging contestants or rocking out with Christina Aguilera, Adam was spotted on his phone. Could he have been texting current girlfriend Behati Prinsloo? We’ll leave the speculating...
