Chronology
2012 (Spring)

The second season of the American reality talent show The Voice, premiered on NBC on February 5, 2012 in the 10 p.m. ET slot immediately following coverage of Super Bowl XLVI.[1] The first promo aired on NBC on Saturday, October 8, 2011 during an episode of Saturday Night Live.[2]

The program seeks solo artists and duos that perform various types of music: pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop, alternative, Latin, country, blues and indie.[3] Auditions were held July 15 to August 31, 2011 in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, Nashville, and Orlando.[3]

All four coaches return for their second season. The season expanded from the first season: each coach has twelve artists on their team, rather than eight as in the first season. The blind auditions and the battle rounds have also been extended. Executive producer Mark Burnett said that a results show would be on Tuesday nights in the spring.[4] Jermaine Paul, mentored by coach Blake Shelton, was declared winner of the season.
