Since "The X Factor" recently fired three out of its five stars and "American Idol" has yet to unearth any stand-out talent in its audition rounds, it seems like the return of NBC's upstart singing contest, "The Voice," is long overdue. The show returns -- with all four of its celebrity mentors (Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton) still on-board -- this Sunday after the Super Bowl.
And what better way to prepare for "The Voice's" sophomore season than by catching up with one of last year's breakout artists? Dia Frampton may have come in second to the soulful winner Javier Colon, but she dominated the iTunes chart throughout the competition, amassing more digital downloads than any of her fellow contestants and hitting the number one spot during last season's finale. Since then, she has released a critically lauded album, entitled "Red," and somehow found the time to star in a five-part webseries that debuts tomorrow right here at HuffPost TV and on NBC.com.
The webisodes will follow Frampton in her "next stage" as a successful recording artist, spotlighting her fashion choices, encounters with the press and interactions with the industry insiders who will help shape her career, with exclusive live performances of her new tracks thrown in. To whet your appetite for the series' first installment (which will premiere exclusively on HuffPost TV tomorrow at 10 a.m. EST/7 a.m. PST), check out the sneak peek at the webseries' trailer.
"The Voice" premieres Sunday, Feb. 5 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
