Several weeks ago, NBC's "The Voice" held auditions in New York City and Shawn Smith of the local band Showtime made the trip; since then, we have no idea what happened.  Smith has been unavailable for comment and even the people closest to him say they have no idea what happened at the audition.  One thing we do know according to web reports, is that there are several steps during the audition process and potential contestants are required to sign a rather strict non-disclosure agreement that prevents them from talking about any of the process.  In other words, you can't say if you made it through and you can't say if you were rejected;  therefore, we have no idea if his silence is because the results are positive or negative.  That means on Monday and Tuesday nights, we'll be watching closely to see if for the first time ever, someone local has made it on one of these national talent shows.  Either way, we give Smith a great deal of credit for being 100-percent tight lipped.

NBC's "The Voice" debuts a new season Monday night, March 25th at 8 p.m..  The program airs Mondays and Tuesdays on WKTV.
