The worldwide phenomenal reality talent show “The Voice” invades Philippine primetime TV as its second and current season airs on Studio 23 beginning Saturday (Mar 31).


Celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shalton, and Cee Lo Green return for another exciting battle of the strongest vocalists across USA with Carson Daly as host and Christiana Milian as the new social media correspondent.


“The Voice” is a unique singing competition where auditions are based solely on vocal ability. In the first stage called the ‘blind auditions,’ all four coaches must listen to the artist without facing him or her and must press their respective buttons if they want the artist to be part of the team they will mentor. Hitting the button will also trigger the coach’s chairs to swivel so that the coach can finally see the face behind the voice.



This season, the coaches get to choose 12 contestants each to form their respective teams.  They will then dedicate themselves to develop their singers via mentoring and will pit two of their own team members in the second round called the ‘battle phase.’


After the vocal face-off, the coach must then choose who among the two singers will advance. Those who will survive in the battle rounds will proceed to the third stage— the live performance shows— wherein viewers can save them from elimination by voting.


In the end, each coach will have one star artist left to compete against the other team’s finalists and the last one standing will be named “The Voice.” The winner will receive a recording contract as a grand prize.


Aside from the much talked about singing competition from the US, Studio 23 has also started airing the much-talked about eighth and final season of the hit TV drama series “Desperate Housewives” and eighth season of “Grey’s Anatomy.”


Watch the intense happenings in the lives of the world-renowned housewives of Wysteria Lane. What will happen after Carlos murdered Gaby’s evil stepfather? How will Susan, Gaby, Bree, and Lynette’s cover up take its toll on them?


If “Desperate Housewives” will finally bid goodbye, the rumored to be final season of “Grey’s Anatomy” may have hopes of being extended after producer Shonda Rhimes said she plans to continue the show regardless of whether original cast members will return. Speculations on the show’s demise were roused due to the unclear contract renewals of its lead stars Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers, Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson.
Don’t miss the Philippine free TV premiere episode of “The Voice 2” in two parts this Saturday (Mar 31), 6:30 PM and Sunday (April 1), 5:30 PM. Watch the succeeding episodes every Saturday, 5:30 PM with a replay on Mondays at 7 PM.  Watch “Grey’s Anatomy” every Thursday at 7 PM, back-to-back with “Desperate Housewives” at 8 PM only on Studio 23.
