Coaches on 'The Voice' to Return
June 30, 2011
The Insider has just confirmed that all four musician coaches of NBC's "The Voice" – Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton – will return for a new season of the hit series.
"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of 'The Voice' this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," said Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. "We look forward to building season two and making 'The Voice' an even greater experience for fans."
The news of all four coaches' return comes right on the heels of last night's season finale, where Javier Colon, coached by Adam Levine, took home the top prize – $100,000 and a recording contract with Universal Republic.
Hosted by Carson Daly, "The Voice" is meant to emphasize raw voice talent over style and performance, the coaches not being allowed to see the contestants' faces when first deciding if they want to coach them or not. The singing competition has been a hit for NBC, consistently garnering a lot of buzz and high ratings throughout its first season.
