"The Voice" Season 6 kicked off last night on NBC and the first batch of new hopeful contestants singing in the famous 'blind auditions'. They did not waste any time rolling out huge talent, with the very first contestant getting all four chairs to turn around and wowing the crowd.
She was YouTube star, Christina Grimmie, and she chose Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" to perform and not only did she nail it but added even more vocal power and runs then the original recording. Grimmie is already an early favorite and many think she can go very far this season (watch her audition above).
Grimmie had the choice of any judge she wanted with them all turning around, but in the end she went with Team Adam. After Team Blake won three seasons in a row, Team Adam took over the crown again winning Season 5. This was Team Adam's second win as he won the initial Season 1 as well.
"The Voice" Season 6 will rotate coaches Shakira and Usher back into the famous red chairs again and Ceelo Green and Christina Aguilera stepping aside for this season. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will again be back for their sixth season in a row as they mainstays of the judging panel.
"The Voice" producer, Mark Burnett, and his team were right, as "The Voice" has overtaken "American Idol" and the other singing competitions to become America's highest rated show. The past few years have been successful in finding talent as well as Season 3 winner, Cassadee Pope, and Season 4 winner, Danielle Bradbery, have already been finding commercial success in the country music market on radio and being asked to open on tours with Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and more.
Tune into night 2 of the 'blind auditions' of Season 6 of "The Voice" on NBC tonight.
