Tonight's TV highlight: 'The Voice' debuts with Bucks County native as star

We're ready to declare a winner - and the season's just beginning

Tonight’s TV highlight: 'The Voice' debuts with Bucks County native as star

Major mo on The Voice. The NBC singing contest won the Emmy last night for outstanding reality competition (breaking The Amazing Race’s 87 year run). Tonight it begins a new season with the original judges’ lineup – Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera return to join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

But do they have talent?

Alright, check out this guy, Levittown's own Matthew Schuler singing “Cough Syrup” the hit from Young the Giant.

During this blind audition, all four chairs whip around before Schuler, a graduate of Pennsbury High School,  takes his first breath. “Well, hot damn,” says Cee Lo. “Who are you?”

Each of the judges lobbies hard (and rather underhandedly) to get Schuler on their team. Who do you think he will sign on with? You’ll have to tune in tonight.

His talent sure simplifies things. We’re ready to declare the winner of The Voice before a single note has been sung.
