>>> we are back now at 7:44 and time to talk about what was a fun night for savannah and al. guys?
>> yeah, we were up late. as we mentioned we were at "the voice" last night and got a behind-the-scenes look at the singing competition on its first live night.
>> stage 12, right here.
>> i think "the voice" is somewhere near here. i think there's a sign.
>> i think what you meant to say is this is "the voice."
>> walking, walking, hard to walk in these shoes.
>> usher, come on.
>> no more backstage passes for you.
>> that's right.
>> you were working out with your team. that was pretty impressive.
>> have to appreciate everything. if you want to win, you have to pay it forward.
>> i can't imagine somebody who has never done this walking out on stage like this.
>> you know, nerves do sneak in every so often, but have you to quiet that and only focus on one thing. to walk away to let you leave without a trace
>> looking from over there, it's like a pit stop at nascar. look at this.
>> i wore my nighttime heels. sorry, al, i'm like 7 feet tall right now.
>> because you're not tall enough.
>> two members of the nbc family, give it up from the "today" show, savannah guthrie and al roker are here. give it up, everybody.
>> love "the voice" and big fans at the "today" show. one of the contestants from the show live on the "today" show tomorrow.
>> summer concert series. who do you have on it?
>> a band you might have heard of, maroon five.
>> i love you, al roker .
>> first live show under your belt. how does it feel?
>> i think the competition is a lot tougher than i thought it was going to be. i think judith had a big moment there, and i think ma michelle or usher's team had a huge moment.
>> what are you going to tell them to inspire them?
>> what are you going to tell them?
>> i don't mean to steal your thunder.
>> first show --
>> oh, god.
>> you watch these other two teams perform. how do you feel your chances are?
>> are you afraid of my am?
>> i am a little afraid of your team.
>> what do you mean a little?
>> and of adam.
>> what do you mean adam?
>> grows each week.
>> shakira, you can understand. let's see your heels.
>> yeah. just trying to fit in here.
>> my stockings.
>> a stocking malfunction.
>> it's amazing to watch what happens during this broadcast, matt. i mean, it's an army of people who put this thing on.
>> when you think about the fact that these are amateurs coming out there singing, this huge stage, live television , and they all are so composed and do so well.
>> you had a chance to size up the teams. what do you think?
>> i mean, there's some pretty stiff competition. judith at the end of the night, no question. she brought the house down, but there's a lot of great singers, josiah we just had had a really good night.
>> and all crazy young.
>> very young, very energetic which is good because they don't let them sleep.
