After NBC premiered "The Voice" on Tuesday, April 26, people began flooding Twitter with comments about the new show. Overall, the audience who also use the micro-blogging site love the show as they mostly said only good things about it.
"#thevoice is MY NEW FAVE COMPETITION SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they are all AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Mel Jogia wrote. Some have even said that it will overshadow "American Idol". "#TheVoice is definitely going to be bigger than American Idol...new favorite show!" tweeted Stephanie Conroy. Another Twitter user, Melissa Zimmerman, commented, "Watchin #TheVoice ... Good showww I like it so far. Better than #AmericanIdol".
The judges also earned praises, with Abi Maison stating "I love watching @blakeshelton on #thevoice, he's so freakin' funny!" Cee-Lo Green was credited for being "so sweet", while Abby S. Salvatore declared, "So far, I am team Adam and team Blake on #thevoice." Christina Aguilera has also got her own fans on the show, with Ryan Greenberg tweeting, "Good concept, good talent, and... Christina Aguilera. What more could you want?"
In the meantime, critics gave various reviews on the show. The Wall Street Journal said "The Voice" had "more of a game show quality to it than many other TV singing competitions," while Entertainment Weeky stated the otherwise, calling it "garish bore over two hours on Tuesday night."
Billboard agreed with EW, noting the similarities between "Voice" and Fox's "Idol". "Not surprisingly, The Voice borrows more than a few tricks from American Idol," the site wrote, adding that Christina was prominent on the show.
"There's no denying that right now this is Aguilera's show," Billboard's reviewer commented. "She takes control whenever possible, blending congeniality, glamour and sass in attractive package. And the cameras can't help emphasizing her either - her cleavage is given much more air time that any of the men's assets."
