The Voice Season 2 Preview

Updated on January 6, 2012

The Voice's Season 2 is set to premiere on February 5, 2012, right after the Super Bowl. With the Super Bowl being essentially the biggest show on TV, this should be a great boost for this premiere episode of Season 2. Certainly, anything below 25 million visitors would be a big disappointment.

According to NBC, the premiere episode is the first of the blind auditions for Season 2. For those who didn't watch the first season, the first round of auditions occurs in front of the judges, but they listen to the voice only. If the judge wants a contestant on his team, he presses a button so that the chair swivels around to see the contestant performing. The purpose of this is supposedly to get people with great singing voices. In reality, the producers have already picked the blind-audition contestants and their favorites. So the blind auditions, while fun, are surely just a gimmick.

In Season 2, all of the judges are back, including Blake Shelton, Maroon 5's lead singer Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green. Host Carson Daly and social media correspondent Christina Milian are also back for the sophomore season.

Javier Colon was the winner of the first season of The Voice. Dia Frampton came in second, Vicci Martinez came in third, and Beverly McClellan rounded out the four finalists. Javier and Dia have had disappointing album sales during that time, but there appeared to be little promotion or show support for their work. As such, that is not a huge surprise. Nonetheless, the first season had many great vocalists, and I would expect to see more of that in Season 2.

Obviously, NBC must have been pretty happy with the first season's ratings. Otherwise, the show would not have received the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. However, The Voice will now be airing during the American Idol season. It will be interesting to see how that may affect the ratings and whether there will be some level of fatigue among the fans for these live singing shows. American Idol should easily beat The Voice in ratings, but The Voice will still be considered a success if Season 2 averages 12 or 13 million viewers. Idol will likely get around 20 million viewers on average if recent trends continue.
