THE VOICE (NBC) - Carson Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") is reportedly in talks to host the upcoming talent competition, in which "singers will be mentored by music industry professionals, compete weekly in front of a panel of coaches, and America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize." John De Mol and Mark Burnett are behind the project, which is set up at Warner Horizon Television.
