"THE VOICE" STARTS NEW SEASON

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The coaches of "The Voice" will reward those who listen to them. Daniel Rosa auditioned last season and was rejected, but the coaches told him to keep working at it. This time around, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton were fighting over him. Rosa chose Green's team. Green also wooed a singer whose teacher told him music was a waste of time. Shelton's team includes a Scottish rock musician and a yodeler. Christina Aguilera's team picked up a woman who says she's often mistaken for a man and another singer who auditioned with one of Aguilera's own songs. Adam Levine recruited the son of a Latin jazz musician and a singer from a pop-punk band.

SIMON COWELL FURIOUS AT "THE VOICE"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Simon Cowell says he thought there was a "gentleman's agreement" when it came to singing competition shows. NBC thinks otherwise. NBC expanded its premiere of "The Voice" this week from two days to three, which means it goes head-to-head against the debut of "The X Factor" tomorrow. Cowell calls it "mean-spirited" and says he hopes it backfires on NBC because "The X Factor" is one of the best shows this year. Cowell says Britney Spears is not the car crash everyone is expecting, and he says Demi Lovato is a brat and that's why he likes her. NBC has not commented on adding the third day.
