NBC has a (rare) hit on its hands and it knows a good thing when it sees it. Well, except when picking 95 percent of its non-comedy or reality pilots. Anyway:
The Voice has been renewed for two more seasons!
NBC said in a statement:
"This pickup will assure the many dedicated Voice fans that this innovative show will continue to bring some of the most talented new voices to the world's attention through all of next year."
"With the recently announced addition of Usher and Shakira as rotating coaches to join Christina, Cee Lo, Adam and Blake in the next cycle, we know that this incredibly addictive program will remain even more relevant as we move forward through this exciting season."
"My hat is off to John de Mol, Mark Burnett, and everyone who produces this classy and highly entertaining show for us."
The decision keeps the reality hit running through the fall of 2013.
The Voice has been winning its time slot against some stiff competition, beating out ABC's Dancing With the Stars premiere as well as The X Factor on Fox.
Blind auditions continue this evening on NBC.
