'The Voice' first look: Judging the coaches' pipes!

Posted on

The Voice

No, the coaches aren’t suppose to audition for the audience. But in this first look from NBC’s The Voice, coaches (not judges) Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine attempt to entertain the audience during the show’s blind audition portion by crooning the theme to The Golden Girls. (Don’t ask).

Where’s other coach Christina Aguilera, you say? Probably off camera, playing with her spinning chair. Remember, the conceit of this show involves the coaches selecting finalists based solely on their pipes. All four have their backs to the contestants in those spinning chairs while they decide who’s “lucky” enough to move on to the finals. Ooh, the anticipation!

The competition series from Mark Burnett debuts April 26.
