As “The Voice” debuted its new season on Monday night, audiences got a sneak peek of one contestant with a famous sibling — Briana Cuoco, the younger sister of Kaley Cuoco, star of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.”
Briana was shown in a short clip alongside her famous sister being surprised by Carson Daly with the news that she will have the chance to attend the blind auditions and perform in front of coaches Adam Levine, CeeLo Green, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera.
Access caught up with Kaley’s “The Big Bang Theory” co-stars on the Emmy red carpet last night who had nothing but glowing reviews for Briana.
“She has a beautiful voice,” Mayim Bialik told Accesshollywood.com’s Laura Saltman. “She is phenomenal. She’s very, very talented.”
Jim Parsons happily told Access how impressed he is with Briana.
“She is a great a lot of things. We give Kaley a lot of hell like ‘Oh so finally the world is going to see the really talented Cuoco!’ Which is not true we just want to give her s**t!”
Besides being a singer, Briana is also a dancer and choreographer. Back in March, Briana choreographed a flash mob routine for her sister and the entire cast and crew of “The Big Bang Theory,” an idea Kaley came up with as a surprise for the show’s creators.
Briana has also been racking up screen credits in the acting world with small roles on “The Newsroom,” “The Mentalist” and a guest role on her sister’s show “The Big Bang Theory” last season where she played the character Gretchen, the new girlfriend of one of Penny’s ex-boyfriends in the Valentine’s Day episode.

The cat got out of the bag early last week about “The Voice” when several people began Tweeting Briana about being on the show. Briana clarified in a Tweet saying - “Ok just to be CLEAR as GLASS-I never said I’m gonna be ON it. I said I AUDITIONED for it - you have to TUNE IN to see how I did.”
On Sunday, she posted a funny photo of herself on Instagram holding a microphone with a picture of the coaches’ chairs from “The Voice” in front of her saying, “practice makes perfect?”
However, it seems audiences will have to wait to see just how far she makes it.
“The Voice” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM on NBC.
