Mark Burnett brings 'The Voice of America' to NBC

Reality show producer Mark Burnett's already working on bringing an "Amazing Race" clone to ABC, and now he's taking on "American Idol" and "The X-Factor" with NBC's spring singing competition, "The Voice of America."

According to Deadline.com, the show, based on the Dutch series "The Voice of Holland," features four celebrity artists who act as coaches and mentors for the talent.

During auditions, the coaches sit with their backs to the contestants so they can hear but not see them. The coach then pushes a button if he or she wants to take that contestant on as a student. If more than one coach chooses the same contestant, the contestant decides which coach he or she wants to work with.

A publicist for the actor has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Hoff will indeed be headed across the pond to judge the U.K. series. Last week, EW pointed out that he was in talks for the job, so apparently whatever scheduling problems that were standing in Hoff’s way have been worked out.
