NBC‘s The Voice will once again face a Fox singing competition rival. The spring cycle of the NBC reality series will feature an one-hour episode on Wednesday, May 8, when the top 12 contestants will be announced. NBC’s decision last fall to pit a Wednesday episode of The Voice against the season premiere of The X Factor drew the wrath of Simon Cowell. This time Voice will face Fox’s American Idol. Additionally, The Voice will expand two Tuesday episodes, on April 30 and May 7, to two hours. Any expansion of The Voice should be welcome news for ratings-challenged NBC, which is looking to rebound after a abysmal start to 2013.
