NBC's The Voice - Audience Report

The new NBC show "The Voice" started filming yesterday and @MYIDOLTOWN was there to watch it all go down. Here is their account from their twitter page (edited from many tweets):
A previous American Idol contestant that missed making the voting rounds MADE IT THROUGH on The Voice!!! I was there ALL MORNING NOON & NIGHT YESTERDAY for the taping, half of the Top 60 performed for the audience & judges trying to get picked by 1 of the coaches: Blake, Christina, Cee-Lo or Adam In Order To REMAIN in the Competition! Each coach can only pick 8 contestants to be on their individual teams, sort of like The X-Factor format in some ways. Coaches don't know what they look like at first. The audience can see the contestants but the coaches can't, until they press the button wanting them on their team! They base their decisions on the voice alone before appearance is revealed. Very fun, interesting & great talent! So much can be said christina wore a black dress & always took her shoes off during breaks. The coaches were pretty funny ALL through the tape day! The other half of Top 60 compete today! 30 People - Not very many spots left, just 3 spots left for Adam's team! 

We have a partial list of some of the songs we can expect to see on the first episode:

Name Unknown (female) - Breathe by Michelle Branch - Picked by Cee-Lo and Christina - Chose Christina
Devyn - I'm Yours by Jason Mraz - Picked by Adam
Name Unknown (female) - Sober by Pink - Picked by Cee-Lo
Dia - Bubbly by Colbie Caillat - Picked by Blake
Frenchie Davis - I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry - Picked by Christina
Nikia - Forget You by Cee-Lo Green - Picked by Cee-Lo
Name Unknown (male)- God Bless The Broken Road by Rascall Flats - Picked by all 4 judges - Chose Adam
Name Unknown (male) - Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper - Picked by all 4 judges - Chose Adam
Name Unknown (female) - Come As You Are by Nirvana - Picked by Christina and Cee-Lo - Chose Cee-Lo
Name Unknown (male) - Hillbilly Bone by Blake Shelton - Picked by Cee-Lo

According to MyIdolTown, they are actually paying people $40 to bring 3 people with them to the taping to fill the audience. She also says "Christina Aguilera has a familiar singing competition face & name she'll coach!" but is not willing to give up the contestants name at this point. I guess we'll have to wait and see when The Voice premiers on Tuesday, April 26th on NBC.

Update: The IDOL contestant mentioned was FRENCHIE DAVIS Read More.
