The Peacock delays 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' by 12 minutes to air a sneak peek of the heavily-promoted singing competition.
NBC is going full throttle to promote "The Voice" this week, releasing a 12-minute preview which includes the judges collaboratively singing Gnarls Barkley's Grammy-winning hit "Crazy". The new competition from Mark Burnett is due to premiere on Tuesday, April 26 at 9 P.M.
The lengthy sneak peek was broadcast on Thursday, April 21 before "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". Starting at 11:35/10:35c, the preview features four judges/coaches, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee-Lo Green, performing the latter's song which he had released as part of the duo Gnarls Barkley.
NBC will again air a shortened version of the preview, running two minutes top, on Saturday, April 30 before "Saturday Night Live" at 11:30/10:30c.
The series is set to debut with a two-hour special. It will face ABC's top-rated "Dancing with the Stars" at 9 P.M. and the network's new drama "Body of Proof" in the next hour.
