NBC's 'The Voice' Scores Music Cred With Coaches' 4 Grammy Noms
When it comes to TV's singing competitions, it really is an honor just to be nominated this year.
NBC should be pretty happy about the results from Wednesday’s Grammy nominations when it comes to its talent competition, The Voice. The show’s coaches, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton scored a total of four Grammy noms between them.
Shelton scored the most nominations of the crew with one for Best Country Solo Performance for his single, “Honey Bee.” The other nomination, Best Country Song, actually went to Dave Barnes who wrote “God Gave Me You,” which Shelton covered on his album, Red River Blue (which also includes “Honey Bee”).
Shelton performed “Honey Bee” on The Voice with his team members Dia Frampton and Xenia in June. And in March, NBC.com exclusively debuted the music video for the song.
Levine (by way of his pop rock band, Maroon 5) and Aguilera also have a chance at a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance win with their collaboration, “Moves Like Jagger.” They debuted the song on The Voice with a live performance in June.
Not one to be left out of the fun, Green also got into the Grammy nom action with his song, “Fool For You,” with Melanie Fiona in the Best Traditional R&B Performance category.
As for Fox's The X Factor and American Idol, their judges didn’t score any nominations this year. That’s a point for The Voice for staying relevant, huh?
The Voice returns for Season 2 after the Super Bowl on Feb. 5. And their stars will find out if they actually win their categories when the Grammy Awards air Feb. 12 on CBS.
