Christina Aguilera's New Show on Dubai One

16 Nov 2011

TV station introduces The Voice, the new talent contest with Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green as judges

They've got the moves like Jagger, two of the judges, and the other one is known for doing Crazy with Gnarls Barkley - and this hot trio will be on a screen near you soon hosting new talent show The Voice. Our toes are tapping already!

If you're wondering what we're banging on about, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine (of Maroon 5 fame), who recently collaborated on the hit track Moves Like Jagger, are reuniting along with hip hop heavyweight Cee Lo to cast their votes in a new type of talent show airing on Dubai One, the leading free-to-air English-speaking TV channel in the region.

US country singer Blake Shelton was added to the final judge’s panel a few days into filming.

The twist in show is that the judges won't be able to see the performers - only the viewers will. The judges have to make decisions based on the voices alone - which will add a whole new dimension to the traditional talent show set-up and bring up questions about how shallow we all are (our guess: very - Susan Boyle was a lesson to us all!).

Dubai One is the first channel with exclusive rights to broadcast the show in the region. Well done, D1! The channel is also showcasing programmes such as Gossip Girl Season 5, The Closer, Supernatural, Chuck, Smallville and both CSI. Homegrown programmes, Studio One, Out and About, Emirates 24/7 and Emirates News will also be back for another season.

INFO:The Voice will premiere on 18 November on Dubai One and will air every Friday at 10pm. All other shows and drama series have taken on new timings with dramas starting at 9pm daily and blockbuster movies at 10pm from Saturday to Thursday and 11pm on Fridays. For the schedule and timings visit
