Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV


The Voice Carson Daly hosts and Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are the mentors/coaches/judges in this new reality singing competition in which wannabe pros try to win a recording contract. The twist, in tonight’s part one of the auditions: The judges can’t see the singers perform – they can only listen to them – until they’ve decided whether or not they’re talented enough to continue on in the competition. I know, I know, we didn’t really need an American Idol knock-off, especially with Simon Cowell‘s X Factor coming in the fall and another season of America’s Got Talent on tap for summer, but I have to admit, with AI turning out to be a disappointment this season, and that intriguing twist of the blind auditions, The Voice is definitely worth checking out.
