With the Olympics over, the focus on NBC turns to singing -- it's the spring season premiere of The Voice
. Check out what you can expect now that the mentors have been set and hear a preview of the singers featured in season 6.
The Mentors Are Set
First, it was announced Miranda Lambert will advise Team Shakira, and The Band Perry
will help out with Team Blake. The mentors have been rounded out with Usher bringing in Jill Scott, and reigning champ Adam looking to Aloe Blacc for advice. The mentors will offer their expertise during the Battle Rounds.
Even though Aloe Blacc appeared last season, singing his song "Wake Me Up" with Will Champlin, he's the more obscure artist out of the mentors (he has a great song called "I Need a Dollar"). But do mentors really matter in the end? Not really. If anything, if Aloe can offer constructive criticism and come off likable on television, his stock will only rise.
Check out his performance from last fall:
In Jill Scott, Usher says he has his "weapon." She's a multi-talented writer, musician and actress. Wonder if it means he'll be trying to round up an R&B team since they both professionals fit in that category?
The Coaches Sing
During tonight's two-hour premiere, which starts at 8pm, the coaches will sing a medley of each other's songs. Hear them in action:
-- I couldn't tell at all in the beginning what Blake was singing, but then I started to really like his country voice on Shakira's song. I was hoping one of the men would sing "Hips Don't Lie," because that would've been hilarious.
-- Does else think that Usher and Adam need to record a song, stat? Usher would fit in seamlessly with Maroon 5.
-- Who knew Adam's voice even went that low?
Oh yeah, guess the show is about some amateur singers as well. We have clips of two four-chair turnarounds. First up is Bria Kelly, who takes on James Taylor's "Steamroller Blues." If she looks or sounds familiar, it's because she was on season 7 of America's Got Talent.
Next, there is Christina Grimmie, singing Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball." She's already a YouTube sensation, which mean she has an established army of fans who will probably vote for her.
What do you think? Do you like any one singer over the other? Which coach should the ladies pick?
The Voice season 6 premieres tonight at 8pm on NBC.
