NBC's 'The Voice' opens the gates to pop-stardom to anyone with a webcam
Aspiring pop-stars won’t need to stand in line for their shot at stardom anymore. For Mark Burnett’s new NBC singing competition, The Voice, potential contestants can showcase their pipes from home, using their home computer’s webcam. The nifty “Voice Online Audition Tool” records performances and rates them on a scale from 1 to 10 — the highest-rated submissions will draw consideration from The Voice‘s casting team. Wannabes have until March 1 to record their singing on the NBC website.
The Voice, which will be hosted by Carson Daly when it airs this spring, will place special emphasis on vocal talent, as the show’s judges will initially select contestants without seeing them perform.
