NBC’s ‘The Voice’ preview: See Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, more perform ‘Hella Good’

Gwen Stefano -It has become some sort of awkward tradition for “The Voice” to start off their season with group performances featuring the coaches. We’ve never really understood these, since you have four people who are all from completely different genres of music, and it is totally cool if Blake Shelton does not perform something that is the polar opposite of country music.

Yet, here we go again with a performance (see below) of all four coaches set to the classic No Doubt track “Hella Good.” There is definitely a whole lot of energy to it, and we at least will not deny that. We’ll also give them credit for doing it; plus. Pharrell is pretty darn awesome on the drums.

What we’re mostly curious about is this: Why not give the coaches minute-long showcases instead of some of their own material? We’d rather hear something new that they are working on, or a way for maybe some of the uninitiated to learn a little more about what they bring to the table. Plus, Blake and Adam Levine both have some new music out there right now, and Pharrell is always working on something with someone.

Even if you hate this segment, the one thing that we can tell you as somewhat of a reprieve is that the segment doesn’t last very long. It will be over in a matter of a few minutes, and then the show will go right about its business doing everything else.

What do you think about this preview, at least in comparison to how some other seasons of “The Voice” have started off with similar performances? Share in the comments below right now! Also, you can click here if you want to see another preview from Monday’s episode!
