Hating American Idol without Simon Cowell, I did not watch any episodes of American Idol Season 10. I was waiting for the X Factor US when I stumbled with The Voice.
“The Voice” is a vocal competition series modeled after Holland’s top-rated vocal talent discovery show, “The Voice of Holland.” Hosted by Carson Daly, the show features four musician coaches: Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who will coach only the most talented vocalists.

I like the format. It is a SINGING competition and aspiring singers are auditioned primarily based on the quality of the voice, hence the title of the show. See process of selection.
Watching the blind auditions (first 2 episodes) convinced me that this show is fun and entertaining to watch (I love Blake Shelton and Adam Levine!) because of the sort-of-competition among the coaches, besides the quality of talents. And of course, the focus is always on the contestant and not just some advertising and ratings maneuvers. I hope the show stays that way…
