Returning for its fifth season, NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice is hosted by Carson Daly and features Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and returning coaches, CeeLo Green and Christina Aguilera. Each coach selects aspiring singers based solely on the voice to make up his or her team. The team members then battle against each other, with the winners moving on to the knockout rounds, and the losers either going home or having a judge “steal” them for his or her team.  In the knockout rounds, contestants are paired with a teammate, yet individually perform a song of his or her choosing.  Each coach then makes a final decision on which member goes home or stays for the live performances during which the television audience has the opportunity to vote for their favorite team member.  At the end, the contestant who receives the most votes will be “The Voice” and wins a recording contract. Special guest advisors include Cher, Ryan Tedder, Miguel, and Ed Sheeran.

Sex is not depicted in the show, but often mild sexual innuendo and references are reflected in the banter among the judges and contestants, as well as the suggestive lyrics in the songs that the contestants perform. Language may be of a concern with judges often using “badass,” “hell,” “damn,” and “crap.” Violence is not a problem for the program.

The Voice is not recommended for viewers under age 14.
