The hit reality TV show “The Voice” will crown its inaugural champion at the end of its live season finale, airing from 7 to 8 tonight on NBC (KFOR-4 in Oklahoma City).
I’ll be live-blogging tonight’s grand finale here on BAM’s Blog. To read my live blog of last night’s episode, click here.
Each of the four finalists – Dia Frampton, representing Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton’s team; Javier Colon, representing Adam Levine’s team; Beverly McClellan, representing Christina Aguilera’s team; and Vicci Martinez, representing Cee Lo Green’s team – will perform a duet with a superstar on tonight’s finale.
Grammy-winning country star and Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, who happens to be married to Shelton, will perform tonight with Team Blake finalist Dia. Miranda recently spoke with “The Voice” correspondent Alison Haislip about appearing on the show, the extended family it has brought into their lives and her own reality TV experience on “Nashville Star.”
Along with the Miranda-Dia duet, Tulsa native and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder will be paired with Beverly. Legendary Fleetwood Mac songstress Stevie Nicks will pair with Javier. And Train lead singer Pat Monahan will sing with Vicci.
“The Voice” is an innovative vocal competition series modeled after Holland’s top-rated vocal talent discovery show, “The Voice of Holland.”
The series is hosted by Carson Daly and features the musician coaches working through the various phases of the competition with only the most talented vocalists. The show’s second season will air mid-season at 7 p.m. Mondays.
In addition, “The Voice” continues to push the boundaries between broadcast and online by bringing social media conversations to the on-air show. Bridging the gap between on-air and online is Social Media Correspondent Alison Haislip (“Attack of the Show!”), who makes regular appearances during the live broadcasts. Haislip engages fans and connects them to artists and coaches from “The Voice Social Media Room” via Facebook, Twitter, NBC.com and NBC Live. In the live shows, fans who use #TheVoice or tweet to the show, coaches or artists’ official handles may see their tweets appear in the lower third of the screen during cutaways during the live show.
