On the heels of its stellar first season, The Voice host Carson Daly dishes about what we can expect next season.

Carson told The Hollywood Reporter season one was a huge time crunch. “We wanted to catch lightening in a bottle, coming on before The X Factor and at the tail end of Idoland having our coaches with their crazy schedules,” he explained. “So this was 18 hours of TV that we really rushed to get there. We didn’t sacrifice quality but along the way we definitely made some notes about what we wanted to do for season two.”

So, what exactly can fans expect next season? Carson said they’ll expand but not too much because there’s a little something called overkill. “With success in network TV, often they overdo it once they’ve got a hit. They tend to just sort of whore it out, if you will.” They will have longer blind auditions that will probably last at least four weeks, he noted. This way “people can really sink their teeth into that discovery process.”
