Juliet Simms, Chris Mann and RaeLynn -- Former Competitive Artists from the Last Cycle of "The Voice" - Also Will Return to Sing on December 11; Top Four Artists from Current Cycle Will Be Paired to Perform Duets on Same Show

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 29, 2012 - NBC's "The Voice" will deck the halls in early December with several popular singing stars - including NE-YO, Matchbox Twenty and Michael Bublé - as well as fan-favorites Juliet Simms (Team CeeLo), Chris Mann (Team Christina) and RaeLynn (Team Blake) from the last cycle of the hit vocal competition series.

On Tuesday, December 4 (8-9 p.m. ET), NE-YO performs "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)" with the artists. In addition, Matchbox Twenty is joined by artists to perform their new hit "Overjoyed."

During the competition episode of "The Voice" on Monday, December 10 (8-10 p.m. ET), Bublé will team with artists for his new song "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home." That same night, musician coach Blake Shelton will be joined by his team for a rendition of "White Christmas."

Then on Tuesday, December 11 (8-9 p.m. ET), three of last season's competitive artists will perform. Mann will sing his new hit "Roads" while Simms will offer her new song "Wild Child" and RaeLynn will perform her own new song in "Boyfriend." In addition, the top four artists from the current cycle will be paired to perform duets on the December 11 show.

As "The Voice" nears its season finale on December 18 when a new champion is crowned, additional vocal guest stars will be named.

The series' musician coaches are Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Shelton.

Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer NE-YO will make his musical guest debut on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on December 8. The singer-songwriter's latest album "R.E.D" debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Rob Thomas, frontman for Matchbox Twenty, served as musical mentor for team CeeLo during the current cycle of "The Voice." The group's new album is "North," includes the single "Overjoyed."

The multi-Grammy-winning Bublé will host his own original Christmas music/variety special on NBC in "Michael Bublé: Home for the Holidays" on Monday, December 10 (10-11 p.m. ET). He also appeared as a mentor on Shelton's team earlier this season. His multi-platinum album, "Michael Bublé Christmas," was the second-biggest selling album of 2011 with sales that exceeded 6.5 million copies worldwide. His "Crazy Love" CD won two Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Pop Vocal album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his #1 Bublé-penned single, "Haven't Met You Yet."

Shelton also will host his own holiday music special in "Blake Shelton's Not-So-Family Christmas" on Monday, December 3 (10-11 p.m. ET).

Hot off performing on NBC's "Christmas in Rockefeller Center," Mann continues to warm hearts this holiday season. His recently released full-length debut "Roads" and his "Home for Christmas" EP are simultaneously moving up the iTunes charts, and keeping everyone singing along.

"The Voice" is a presentation of One Three Inc. (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
