The Voice (U.S.) Biography
Season two of the The Voice, the American reality talent show, premiered on February 5, 2012; in the 10 p.m. ET slot immediately following NBC's coverage of Super Bowl XLVI. The first promo aired on NBC on Saturday, October 8, 2011 during an episode of Saturday Night Live.
The program seeks solo artists and duos that perform all types of music: pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop, alternative, latin, country, blues and indie. Auditions were held July 15 to August 31, 2011 in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, Nashville, and Orlando.
All four coaches return for their second season. The season expanded from the first season: each coach has 12 artists on their team, rather than 8 as in the first season. The blind auditions and the battle rounds have also been extended. Executive producer Mark Burnett said that a results show would be on Tuesday nights in the Spring.
