Blake Shelton says he’s heading into the new NBC reality series “The Voice” with an open mind.

 Blake says he’ll pick his team based on the contestants’ vocal abilities, not the material they perform. He told “Parade” magazine, “I think people are going to expect me to pick the first guy that steps up here and sings a George Strait song. I may, if I think he’s a great singer, but I may also pick a girl who comes up here and sings an Aretha Franklin song.”

 But Blake admits he can’t describe what he’ll be listening for, adding, “I just know what I like when I hear it and it’s really hard to explain. It’s just something that happens.”

 Blake is talking about the other judges: Christina Aquilera, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green. “Adam [is my biggest competition]. Cee Lo is not. He’ll compete more with Christina on their outfits,” jokes Blake. “Adam is a smart aleck just like I am. There are no boundaries with he and I, and we’re willing to do anything to get the people that we want on our team and say anything. We’re probably not as afraid to hurt the other coaches’ feelings to win this thing.”

Blake also explains people’s expectations of him as a judge on the show may be off the mark. “I think people are going to expect me to pick the first guy that steps up here and sings a George Strait song,” he says. “I may, if I think he’s a great singer, but I may also pick a girl who comes up here and sings an Aretha Franklin song. I just know what I like when I hear it and it’s really hard to explain. It’s just something that happens.”

On “The Voice” each celebrity coach will choose their contestants in blind auditions, then mentor and assist their team of vocalists as they develop their skills and compete against one another in an effort to win a recording contract and a cash prize of 100-thousand-dollars.

 Carson Daly will host “The Voice,” which will make its debut on NBC TONIGHT 9:00p/8:00P CT
