  • -Let's talk about "The Voice," my friend.

  • Season 20 premiered earlier tonight.

  • It's also the 10th anniversary of the show.

  • What can we expect this season?

  • -It's my 5th season, and I'm having a blast.

  • I love it. Nick Jonas is back.

  • Our, uh...

  • -Yeah, we love him.

  • -Our youngest coach. He just hosted SNL

  • and performed so beautifully.

  • And he's back as a coach

  • and we're having a lot of fun this season.

  • -And I know Brandy is the mentor this season for Team Legend.

  • Have you -- I can't remember.

  • Have you worked with Brandy before?

  • -I worked with her once.

  • We had a song together called "Quickly."

  • It was on my 3rd album, Evolver, and it was actually written by

  • Frank Ocean, so that's a pretty cool combination.

  • Me, Brandy singing together, a song written by Frank Ocean.

  • But we hadn't worked together since then,

  • and I love Brandy.

  • I love her as a vocalist.

  • I've looked up to her for such a long time.

  • And so many of my singers on my team just are super Brandy fans,

  • and I told her that she isn't just a great singer,

  • she's a singer's singer.

  • That so many artists, so many singers look up to her

  • as an example of just a great, great vocalist.

  • And every time my artists walked in and discovered Brandy was

  • their mentor, they just all were in shock and so thrilled.

  • And we were so lucky to have Brandy.

  • -Well, you know what it's like

  • to be on a show like "The Voice,"

  • because as a kid, I heard that you wanted to be on

  • one of the original singing competition shows,

  • "Star Search," which I'm not sure...

  • -I wanted to be on "Star Search" so badly.

  • You know, I used to grow up watching Ed McMahon --

  • -Ed McMahon! -And...

  • -Three and three quarter stars!

  • -Yeah. [ Laughs ]

  • And so many great artists actually came through

  • "Star Search," and I would watch the show

  • and I was like, "I want to be on there.

  • I deserve to be on there."

  • And then my local mall --

  • it was called the Fairfield Commons Mall,

  • outside of Dayton, Ohio.

  • They had a local "Star Search" competition

  • and if you won the local competition,

  • they would send your tape to national "Star Search."

  • So I won the local "Star Search" competition

  • at the mall of Fairfield Commons outside of Dayton.

  • They sent my videotape to the national "Star Search,"

  • and I never got a call back, so that was that.

  • -[ Laughs ] Oh, my God.

  • -But I did -- I did get a $500 shopping spree

  • at the new mall, and...

  • -That's a lot. -I bought a lot of clothes.

  • So, I was happy.

  • -I want to show a clip --

  • here's a look at tomorrow night's episode of "The Voice."

  • Check it out.

  • -It's an amazing feeling to feel the joy

  • that you have when you perform.

  • It's very infectious.

  • Not only can you sing, but you're a real musician

  • and you come with artistry.

  • I would love to work with an artist like you.

  • -And he's not a liar.

  • -Wait. Wait a minute.

  • -Blake is going to lie some more, so.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -I am the only coach who doesn't live in Hollywood.

  • I don't ever want to lose sight of my roots.

  • -Wait, what?!

  • -All three of you have gone Hollywood.

  • -You came to Hollywood

  • and started dating Gwen Stefani.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • The ultimate... -The Queen of Orange County.

  • -The manifestation of California girl.

  • -You see how ugly it gets here?

  • -I see, I see it.

  • -John Legend. Tune in tomorrow night at 9 PM

  • on NBC for more of "The Voice" blind auditions.

-Let's talk about "The Voice," my friend.
