UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 27, 2012 - The Semifinals kick off on "The Voice" Performance Show, Monday, April 30 (8-10 p.m., ET) on NBC as all eight Semifinalists will each perform one song in addition to a group performance. Teams Adam and CeeLo will come together to sing "All These Things I've Done" by The Killers, while Teams Blake and Christina unite to sing Lady Gaga's "The Edge of Glory." Plus, "The Voice" presents Coach Blake Shelton, ACM & CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, in the world television premiere performance off his new single, "Over," off his album, Red River Blue.
The Finalists will then be revealed on "The Voice" Elimination Show, Tuesday, May 1 (9-10 p.m., ET) as only one artist per team will advance to represent their coach in the Finals, narrowing the field down to four. The artist on each team with the highest score based on a combined percentage of viewer votes and coach's score from the previous night's Performance Show will move on for a chance to be crowned "The Voice."
But first, "The Voice" welcomes back its season one finalists to join forces with three of music's biggest talents; Cyndi Lauper, Kid Cudi and Coach CeeLo Green himself. Blake's season one finalist, Dia Frampton is set to perform her single "Don't Kick the Chair" featuring Kid Cudi off her debut album, Red, while Vicci Martinez sings "Come Along" featuring her former coach, CeeLo. Also, Grammy(R) Award-winning singer/songwriter, Cyndi Lauper, graces "The Voice" stage for the first time to perform her classic hit, "Money Changes Everything," alongside Coach Christina Aguilera's season one finalist, Beverly McClellan. And reigning champ Javier Colon performs his new single, "A Drop in the Ocean," off his current album, Come Through for You.
"The Voice" is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show's innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams' finalists to be named "The Voice" - the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
"The Voice" is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
