NBC will air The Voice, a new series rivaling Fox's American Idol, starring Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. Reports from executive producer Mark Burnett indicate that the ever popular Forget You singer and Maroon 5 lead have joined the coaches panel for the upcoming series slated for TV in April. Burnett told EW: "Aside from being incredible voices, they bring years of experience in the music industry and a really cool vibe that has never been seen before on a music competition series." Rumors abound that Christina Aguilera will fill in the third judges' seat after execs negotiate with the former Disney star.
The Voice premieres on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 9:00 pm. EST. The show's debut will feature two hours worth of performances and then shift to a regular time slot beginning May 8, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
