How to Fix...'The Voice'

The Voice has only just begun, but already it needs a bit of an overhaul.  Here are five ways to fix the show before it crashes and burns.  

1. Barriers between the seats so that the judges can't see each other.  The fact that they can see each other and encourage one another to press their buttons (a-hem, Blake Shelton) is really annoying.  There should be more suspense.  Like X-Tina should be all, "Should I press my button?  Has Cee-Lo pressed his button?  I have no idea! OMG!  Blurgh! It is so difficult making decisions without the influence of others!!!"
2. Stop pretending the show is LIVE! We all know it's not, Carson Daly. We don't know you well enough yet for you to be lying to us.  Only from Ryan Seacrest and Tom Bergeron will we accept this level of deceit. 
3. Hide the contestants from all of us, not just the judges.  The Powers That Be do this every once in a while, but I'd like it if they did it all the time.  It helps me realize, even for just a moment, my deep innermost dream of being Adam Levine.
4. Clarity in the selection process.  How are the contestants chosen?  Are the producers able to see the contestants during the initial auditions?  I don't think they should be.  I want everyone involved in the early selections to be fitted with blinders.  It's the only way The Voice will be able to manufacture a true Susan Boyle moment.  The contestants on the show thus far have been too conventionally attractive.
5. Simplify the gameplay of the show.  Blind auditions?  Battle rounds?  This show is more confusing than Bamboozled.
