For weeks we were bombarded with never-ending hype over the new season of The Voice premiering immediately after the Super Bowl. However, none of the promos did the show justice like the one that aired during the big game. Judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton teamed up with funny lady Betty White for what was arguably one of the best commercials from the entire night.
In the spot, the four judges seem to be at a swanky hotel when they hear an angelic voice coming from afar. In true Voice nature, the battle is on to get to the source first. After a few punches and an action sequence, the foursome busts through a door to find none other than Betty White fresh out of the shower. Hilarious!!
Something tells me that the ad is a perfect indicator of how fabulous and funny the second season of the hit NBC show is going to be. See the commercial for yourself after the jump:
I freakin' love it. The commercial takes my favorite part of The Voice, the blind auditions, and pokes fun at it with a little bit of help from one of Hollywood's funniest ladies.
After watching the action-packed commercial, I tuned in to the show last night, and you know what? I really enjoyed it. From the Super Bowl spot alone, viewers can tell that the judges on the The Voice have a good time, and it's totally true. Aguilera and her three male counterparts have such a fun vibe among them. Sure, there's a little bit of that essential name-calling and teasing, but none of it feels malicious or legitimately angry a la American Idol and Simon Cowell vs. Paula Abdul back in the day.
The Voice continues tonight (sadly without Betty!) on NBC at 8/7c.
