The Voice - Season 4

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Usher might want to brush up on his geography. He and Shakira are the new coaches on this season of “The Voice.” In last night’s debut, Usher was trying to win over a 16-year-old girl from Texas. She’s a country singer and Usher seemed a little confused whether Nashville is a city or state. Blake Shelton chimed in that Nashville is more like a state of mind. Team Usher picks up two singers. Team Blake picks of four singers, but just three acts. The first act to audition were twin blondes from western New York and they joined Team Blake. Shakira gets a pair of singers and Adam Levine gets one.

Meanwhile, D.L. could be D.O.A. on tonight’s “Dancing With the Stars.” While the judges the say D.L. Hughley has improved, he still lags far behind the pack. His scores picked up a bit, too. But Hughley jokes the judges had used up all of their 4s on him last week. Disney kid Zendaya leads again in week two. Kellie Pickler is coming on strong, as well. She even made partner Derek Hough (huf) bleed a bit during their routine. Tonight we’ll see the first elimination of season. Last week’s scores are combined with this week’s to determine who’s going home.
