"There is no better showcase on television than to follow the Super Bowl, and we believe The Voice is deserving of such high-profile exposure," NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement. "The attention grabbing blind audition phase of The Voice has mass appeal and will fittingly team up with the biggest sporting event of the year."
