Time to chit chat and review the action on “The Voice” featuring the four musician coaches -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
In the finals, each coach will have one artist/contestant left to represent them and that artist’s fate will be in the viewer’s hands.
One of the four finalists will win, and they will receive the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Music Group and $100,000.
The full list of 32 contestants (including the first 12 named last week) can be found on www.nbc.com/the-voice .

The Voice is a great opportunity for Carson Daly who is excellent as host, and it has endeared me to hunky, funny Blake Shelton. However it has skeeved me out a bit with Cee Lo, whose Dr. Evil/T-Rex arm action and girl macking is over the top.
I never want to hear him say “warm, cozy, cuddly” ever again. Christina is Orangina and needs a new shade of self-tanner, and she needs to check out Gleam.
“The Voice” will be broadcast from 10-11 p.m. (ET) each Tuesday night on May 10, May 17 and May 24 following new episodes of “The Biggest Loser” (Tuesdays, 8-10 p.m. ET).
“The Voice” is a vocal competition series hosted by Carson Daly, one of the biggest bright spots for me on the show.
Aguilera (@therealxtina) will team up with singer/songwriter Sia (@Siamusic), Levine (@adamlevine) with Blackstone (@bassicblack), Green (@CeeLoGreen) with singer Monica (@MonicaMyLife), and Shelton (@blakeshelton)with veteran singer Reba (@Reba) -- eventually pitting two of their own team members against each other in a dueling duet.
The show’s first step is with the blind audition, then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows.
Check out all the web-only clips we’ve got for you. First, go backstage with Carson and Blake – the two talk team rivalries (and what’s going on with Christina and Adam!)
Plus, the coach tells you about some of his newest picks for his team. Then, catch up with five artists (Niki, Justin, SeraBee, Sara and Casey Desmond) before they took the stage.
You can also get to know Niki better in her video blog, take a tour of Justin’s current pad, and get crazy with the preacher’s daughters. Encourage your readers to sneak in a game of poker with Josh of Elenowen, find out about Casey’s shopping excursion with Cherie, Lilly, and Angela, peek at Lily’s awesome kicks, and hang with Raquel.
And Tyler shares some tips to improve your own voice!
