"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of 'The Voice' this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming at NBC and Universal Media Studios, said in a statement. "We look forward to building season two and making 'The Voice' an even greater experience for fans."

'The Voice' Finale: Who is the Singing Competition's First Winner? (VIDEO)

Javier Colon & Dia Frampton, 'The Voice''American Idol' revolutionized the singing competition in America ten years ago, and its first winner, Kelly Clarkson, went on to worldwide success and fame.

This summer, 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) has arguably reinvented the concept by putting the focus on ... the voice. Will its winner go on to comparable success?

With top caliber coaches in Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera, the show was more about nurturing tomorrow's superstars than sitting distant and aloof in judgment of them. And after all was said and done it came down to 2 percent.

Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, and Dia Frampton of 'The Voice' on 'Today'The first season of 'The Voice' comes to an end this week with performances by the finalists Tuesday night and the results show Wednesday. Three out of the four remaining singers appeared Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) to talk about what they've learned from their celebrity coaches and how they feel about their competition.

Dia Frampton said she's learned a lot from watching Blake Shelton perform for an audience. "I think the best time I ever had with him is when he took us to a show in Ohio and I was kind of watching him perform," she said. Vicci Martinez has had a good time just being around Cee Lo Green. "He's a riot," she said. "You never know what you're going to get from him."

The Size of Christina Aguilera's 'The Voice' Paycheck Might Surprise You

by AOL Music Staff, posted Jun 19th 2011 11:30AM
Christina AguileraChristina Aguilera is definitely the biggest name of all the coaches on NBC's 'The Voice,' but how much bigger?

The singer/actress makes big money off of her latest gig as coach on NBC's hit battle of the bands show, but you might be surprised to hear just how much. Brace yourself.

Aguilera reportedly earns a staggering $225,000 per episode. Yup. That means Christina makes 2.25x the amount of the future winner of the show's $100,000 prize -- every episode. So in just eight episodes, Christina has grossed $1,800,000 since the show's April 26 premiere. Not too shabby for a month-and-a-half of work!

And it gets better. Christina's co-stars Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton only make $75,000 per episode, which is no doubt an enviable paycheck, but it means that Xtina makes $150K more per episode than her male colleagues. Break that glass ceiling, girl!

Blake Shelton: Christina Aguilera's Boobs Honorary Member of 'Voice' Judges Panel (VIDEO)

Blake Shelton talks about Christina Aguilera on 'Access Hollywood Live'If there's a breakout personality on the singing competition 'The Voice,' it's Blake Shelton. Already a popular country musician, Shelton has proved himself charming and quick-witted, characteristics he displayed Friday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). Billy Bush and Kit Hoover asked Shelton about his fellow 'Voice' judge Christina Aguilera, and her penchant for ribbing Shelton and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

What is her motivation? "She wants us," Shelton deadpanned. Shelton proceeded to tell a story about how 'The Voice' producers encourage the judges to use Twitter during commercial breaks to reach out to fans, and one viewer, like Billy Bush, thought that Aguilera should do more to cover up her cleavage. Shelton disagreed. "I was like, why would anybody ever tell her to ever do that?" he said.

'The Voice' Predictions: Who Will Be Eliminated From Team Christina & Team Blake Tonight?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 14th 2011 5:30PM
Tonight on 'The Voice,' we'll say goodbye to two contestants from both Team Christina and Team Blake. But who will it be?

Last week's first live performance show was a strong one, with Christina Aguilera's team of ladies -- Beverly McClellan, Frenchie Davis, Lily Elise and Raquel Castro -- battling it out in between performing 'Lady Marmalade' with their coach.

Team Christina, The Voice

We also saw Blake Shelton's team -- down to Patrick Thomas, Xenia, Dia Frampton and Jared Blake -- perform strong solos before belting out Maroon 5's hit 'This Love' with their country star coach.

I voted online, and I'm dangerously close to downloading a few of the songs on iTunes as well -- a sure sign of obsession -- but I'm still not sure how the eliminations will play out.

Christina Aguilera performs on 'The Voice'Last night, I went online and voted for reality TV contestants for the first time in my life, and I blame it all on 'The Voice.'

NBC's new hit reality singing competition has captured our attention and our hearts with touching stories, an interesting coaching concept and truly talented performers. Plus, the star power of coaches Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine can't be denied.

Here, three things from last night's show that I never want to see again on 'The Voice,' and one thing I could watch all day -- and you can, thanks to our looping video!

Dia Frampton Owns Kanye West's 'Heartless' As Piano Ballad on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 8th 2011 3:41AM
Dia Frampton, 'The Voice'Despite having already released a major label album with her sister as Meg & Dia in 2009, Blake Shelton noticed that Dia Frampton seemed to have a nervous energy about her on 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC). The band is unsigned now, so perhaps she sees this as a last opportunity to make a career doing what she loves.

In this first week of live competition, it's more important than ever for the contestants to come out strong and give their best performances. Shelton gave Frampton a real chance to shine with an unusual song choice in Kanye West's 'Heartless.'

To direct her nervous energy, she performed behind a grand piano and gave a very interesting and compelling performance. While her voice may not have soared as acrobatically as those on Christina Aguilera's team this week, Frampton certainly gave one of the most memorable performances of the night.

Former 'Idol' Contestant Frenchie Davis Tries to Win Us Back on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Frenchie Davis, 'The Voice'Frenchie Davis stole the hearts of America early in the second season of 'American Idol,' but later found herself disqualified for topless photos she had taken earlier in her career. That didn't sit well with 'Idol's family-friendly image. Now, eight years later Davis returned to a new singing competition series, 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC).

In this premiere episode, it's the Blind Auditions. This means the coaches can't see who's singing and have to decide whether or not they want to work with them toward winning the show based on their voice alone.

This almost proved a double-edged sword for Davis as being recognized might have helped her get more support from the coaches.

Christina Aguilera Explains National Anthem Flub on 'Ellen'Christina Aguilera of 'The Voice' explained her gaffe at the 2011 Super Bowl where she infamously flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem. Turns out, the singer simply got lost in the moment, she said on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

"I've been singing that song my entire life. I was known as the youngest anthem singer in my hometown," said Aguilera. "[But] I had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old and, you know, I took in the moment a little bit too much."

'The Voice' PreviewNBC is pulling out all the stops to make sure we're ready for the series premiere of 'The Voice' on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 9 PM ET. They've blanketed the airwaves with ads, and then they decided to take it a step further with a full-blown preview of 'The Voice' (Thu., 11:35PM on NBC) premiere last night.

With 'American Idol' getting a lot of criticism of late for some of its recent results, and people saying it's more of a popularity contest than a true singing competition, there couldn't be a better time to launch an alternative take on the genre.

And to prove they've got the right superstars leading the charge as Coaches on 'The Voice,' the preview kicked off with the four of them proving their own mettle. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera performed a fantastic version of Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy.'
