Even though I've never been a huge fan of 'American Idol,' I have to admit that the concept of NBC's new singing competition show, 'The Voice,' is intriguing (premieres Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET).

Four of the hottest names in the music business -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, and country star Blake Shelton -- listen to singers without seeing what they look like. If they like what they hear, they turn their chairs around.

Then comes the intriguing part: If more than one of the coaches like a singer, they fight to make their case that the singer should choose him or her as a coach. The goal? To build as strong a team of singers as possible for the competition phase of the show.

I spoke to Cee Lo and 'Voice' host Carson Daly about what separates 'The Voice' from shows like 'Idol' -- the phrase "lack of pretentiousness" was thrown around a bit -- and who is the most competitive of the four mentors. Check out the video interview after the jump.
