Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Nakia, Xenia, Casey Weston and Frenchie Davis will headline The Voice Summer Tour which starts in July.
Adam Levine accidentally made the announcement, but the Hollywood Reporter says that the tour is happening. An official announcement will be made soon (maybe tonight or tomorrow?)
Also, NBC Universal Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt told THR that he hopes to feature a fall and spring season (2012-13) of The Voice after next year. That would be so amazing if it happens. The Voice will be up against American Idol and The X Factor. Hey, if Dancing with the Stars and Survivor can have multiple seasons in a year, why not The Voice. Exciting times people!
After some internal debate, NBC opted to hold the series’ second season for the spring. It was granted the plum post-Super Bowl slot and is poised to expand its number of episodes. Last month, NBC Universal Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt told THR that he hopes to feature fall and spring iterations of the show the following year.
So Voice will not return until January. “We’ve seen what cannibalizing a show can do,” says Francois Lee of advertising firm MediaVest, “so I do think the discipline is a good move.”
When the next season launches, all four coaches are expected to be back, and de Mol says he envisions five to six audition episodes (up from only two this year). Telegdy is eager to build the backstories of the contestants and depict more of the coaching process in longer “battle round” episodes. And if all continues to go well, NBC hopes to have two installments of Voice — one in the fall and one in the spring — for the 2012-13 season.
