Can you sing?
Hit singing competition “The Voice” returns for the sixth season on NBC. Musicians Shakira and Usher will sit in for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, respectively. Regular judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will return this season.
The opening few shows of “The Voice” feature the blind auditions as the judges build teams. The judges won’t see contestants. They will make decisions only on the voices.
