Watch Kaley Cuoco's sister audition on 'The Voice' -- VIDEO

There’s another Cuoco making waves during primetime and it’s not for her acting chops, but rather her musical ability.  Briana Cuoco, younger sister and personal assistant of big sister Kaley, just tried out for The Voice.

Host Carson Daly paid a visit to San Fernando Valley to chat with the Cuoco sisters and we saw some seriously adorable sibling synergy. Though as Kaley’s personal assistant Briana may spend time walking the dogs and obtaining revised scripts, her real passion is music. “My sister understands that I have aspirations, that I have things that I wanna do,” Briana said. And Kaley is effusive with support: “She’s deserved this her whole life… this is her time now.” (Kaley also admits she’s a huge fan of The Voice.)

'The Voice': E.G. Daily and 5 more semi-famous auditioners


Ideally, singing competitions like NBC’s The Voice offer undiscovered contestants the chance to become almost famous. But in season 5, which began on Monday, we’re seeing contestants who are already famous.

During last night’s blind auditions, E.G. Daily — the voice of Rugrats‘ Tommy Pickles, a sometime movie actress (Pee-wee’s Big Adventure), and a singer with a top 10 hit (1987’s “Mind Over Matter”) — competed for a second chance at a music career. And during Monday’s premiere, host Carson Daly told Briana Cuoco, actress Kaley Cuoco’s sister, that she will get to audition in an upcoming episode. (Briana has had small roles on The Big Bang Theory, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and The Newsroom.)

In past seasons, we’ve seen blind auditions from a slew of semi-famous faces, including Raquel Castro (the daughter in Jersey Girl), Tarralyn Ramsey (VH1’s Born to Diva winner), Dia Frampton (of the band Meg & Dia), and American Idol alums Emily Valentine and Frenchie Davis.

Here are five other past Voice contestants who had previous brushes with fame:

If you happened to land on tonight’s second auditions episode of The Voice and noticed the spirited blonde lady singing Faith Hill’s “Breathe” sounded a lot like Tommy Pickles from Rugrats, Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls, Babe (that pig, in the sequel), or the voice of Jake Harper on the Two and a Half Men theme song, that’s no coincidence — she’s done ‘em all!

Country-pop singer E.G. Daily (a.k.a. Elizabeth Daily and Elizabeth Ann Guttman), 51, has been acting and voice-acting since high school. Check out her Voice audition — plus a throwback to her important work as Dottie in 1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure — below: READ FULL STORY

'The Voice': What we want to see from Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green's return

As the cool kids (and the contestants on MTV’s The Challenge) say, the O.G.s are back! Tonight kicks off season 5 of the Emmy-winning reality series The Voice. And as longtime fans of the show know, things will be a little more familiar this season thanks to the return of all four original judges: Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green.

After CeeLo and Christina took last season off (and were replaced by one-namers Usher and Shakira), they’re ready to return to their red spinning chairs. So to get you all in the mood for tonight’s shenanigans, here’s our rundown of what we want to see from this “original” season:

CeeLo’s animal of choice: First, it was Purrfect the cat, and then it was Lady the bird. So what furry friend will be joining Team CeeLo this season? My fingers are crossed for a baby tiger with a monkey literally on its back! READ FULL STORY

Emmys 2013: Jeff Daniels? Merritt Wever? Colbert?!?! Ranking the upsets from crazy to crazier

Midway through Hour Three of this year’s Emmys, host Neil Patrick Harris joked: “No one in America is winning their office pool.” Except that wasn’t really a joke: The 2013 Emmy Awards featured seven big upsets in the major primetime awards. Longtime also-rans got their moment in the sun. Some low-key performances beat out showier and more popular contenders. And, well, the boys of Breaking Bad boys went home emptyhanded. (But don’t weep for them too much.) Below, we rank the upsets from “We should’ve seen that coming” to “We couldn’t have seen that coming even if we were writing a TV show about this two years from now.”

7. The Colbert Report for Outstanding Variety Series
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart won this award for a straight decade, a winning streak unparallelled in Emmys history. But if any series was ever going to beat Daily Show, it had to be spinoff ColbertColbert‘s win comes, somewhat auspiciously, after Stewart took the summer off. Could this indicate a changing of the guard in the Comedy Central late night political-comedy racket? More importantly: Since it technically aired outside this year’s Emmys eligibility period, does this mean we might get an acceptance-speech recreation of the Colbert “Get Lucky” video at Emmys 2014?

John Lennon auditioning for 'The Voice'? Don't imagine, watch this

It’s an old question about singing competition shows: How would real music legends have fared when facing the judges? Would the likes of Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Stevie Nicks or Michael Jackson have ever passed the audition rounds to join the ranks of blandly competent karaoke singers that typically populate shows like Fox’s American Idol?

Or how about John Lennon? Below, a crafty editor has put together a video imagining the Beatles’ singer on NBC’s The Voice doing a blind audition (the video is from a 1975 concert; one of Lennon’s final live performances). Needless to say, Adam, Shakira, Usher and Blake are not impressed. READ FULL STORY

'The Voice' winner Danielle Bradbery takes The EW Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO


Last week, 16-year-old aspiring pop-country singer Danielle Bradbery won The Voice. Shortly after, she received a new guitar from her finale duet partner Hunter Hayes on Today (“I need to learn how to play the guitar more,” she told EW, “and then I’ll carry it around”), and it became one of her answers to our EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below:

Is there beauty in Adam Levine's neck beard?

Screen Shot 2013-06-17 at 9.35.17 PM

I CAN’T TELL. Just pressed play on The Voice and I’m trying so hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, as I truly do love both rugged facial hair and mysteries. But this is just confounding. Is it a goatee or a beard? Does the goatee overpower the beard (rock beats scissors) or is it the other way around, with the beard bubbling up from the surface to eventually consume the goatee (paper covers rock)?

Hey, here’s our full recap of tonight’s season 4 performance finale of The Voice. It’s way better.

Update: This mess looked better out of the spotlight. Less “layers” involved.

I mean, I should definitely just delete all of this. Tell me whyyyyyyyyy.

'The Voice': Why does America love Danielle Bradbery?

Danielle Bradbery from Cypress, Texas, has performed nine times, competitively, on this season of The Voice. Earlier this year, her mentor, Blake Shelton, said she isn’t just important to the country music industry, she’s important to the world. Danielle will probably win (at least one Vegas gambler puts her odds at 3-1, ahead of fellow finalists Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers). Danielle is also 16 years old.
