Tuesday night, the new singing competition that’s dominating our airwaves, “The Voice,” went live. With the show’s growing popularity, “The Voice” has been repeatedly compared to “American Idol,” which just wrapped up its 10th season. So I want to ask you – which show do you like better?
I think the shows are different enough that I can’t say one is better than the other, but “The Voice” is definitely a refreshing take on a now very familiar formula. I had a feeling it would be a hit after seeing a preview a few months ago and I’m thrilled for the show’s success and for my buddy Carson Daly, the host.
Speaking of Carson Daly, he will be on with me tonight as a "Showbiz Tonight" Newsmaker! We’re asking Carson about the comparisons of “The Voice” to “Idol,” and the chemistry between “The Voice” judges. Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have a lot of people talking.
I think “Idol” finally nailed it again with this past season’s panel –Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson – but I love the ease of the chemistry with the judges on “The Voice.” It’s great casting! What do you think? Which judges do you like better?
Also tonight, we have a "Showbiz Tonight" exclusive with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof. She’s giving us lots of behind-the-scenes scoop from the show.
See you exclusively tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!
