Last night after Super Bowl XLVI, NBC's The Voice returned for its second season.  And, delivering on the promise of a hilarious promo commercial that included Betty White, the season debut killed!  It was awesome.  Blake, Adam, Cee Lo, and Christina were in full form and so was the talent.  There's a reason this show is called The Voice.  And, as our American Idol and The Voice expert Steve Thompson explains, there were some big Voices on display!
