The Voice Struck Gold With Kelly Clarkson
NBC’s The Voice has been a rating powerhouse for the peacock network. Since their inception, The Voice took on American Idol, The X Factor USA, The Four, Boy Band, and La Banda and has single-handedly changed the world of singing reality shows. The Voice made Idol change its format and took a massive share of the audience away from Idol.
Seasons 1-3 had coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green. Levine and Shelton would eventually become the show’s “bookend” coaches and pillars for the revolving coaches selection.
Usher, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Clarkson have taken turns filling the middle seats (with Aguilera returning for a couple of seasons). Shania Twain also sat in a big red chair, but only for one night.
Season 13 had Levine, Shelton, Hudson, and Cyrus serve as coaches for the show but there was a lot of negative feedback for having Hudson on the panel, and Cyrus was disliked by a major set of the audience.
We are currently in season 14 of The Voice with coaches Levine, Shelton, Keys, and Clarkson and the show has had a nice shot of energy to it. Clarkson has been a great addition to the show and was welcomed with open arms from the coaches. But what exactly makes her different from all the other filler coaches?
For one, Clarkson is the only coach/judge on a reality show right now who has won one of these shows and went on to have multiple #1 records and successfully crossover into different genres. If you look at Clarkson’s career, she is a well-respected pop-star and country singer.
Clarkson has seen the ups and the downs of winning a reality show, and at one point was irrelevant. Despite that, Clarkson continues to release albums and prove how much of a winner she is in addition to winning Idol’s first season.
This season of The Voice also faces new and direct competition in Idol. Idol has had two head-to-head episodes of its revival season against The Voice on Monday nights, but The Voice has them beat by over 2 million viewers.
If I were the producers of The Voice, I would make sure to secure Kelly Clarkson to a multi-season deal and make her one of the secured coaches on the show. I’d actually love to see her interact with other coaches like Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus.
What has been your opinion on Kelly Clarkson so far?
Anyone who thought that American Idol would be able to beat NBC’s ratings powerhouse The Voice was being a little naive. The same can be said for those who thought that The Voice would completely CRUSH Idol. The Voice did do a better job bringing in people, and Idol did lose a few million viewers going head to head, but both shows did what they were supposed to do: bring in viewers.
The Voice had 11.7 million viewers (second highest viewed show in a year) while Idol had 8.4 million viewers. Heres what essentially happened: People who wanted to watch American Idol but couldn’t over the last 2 years didn’t go and watch The Voice. Idol brought back 8-10 million viewers that weren’t watching the Voice and gave them a show they can watch.
ABC is happy, even though they lost to The Voice, ABC’s 8-10PM Primetime slot has improved with Idol so far. Idol for ABC has been a win and I think that as long as ABC is happy having 8-10 million people watch the show, Idol will be a win for the network for a long time.
The Bottom Line: Idol drew in a great audience in it’s first real head to head collision with The Voice.

Makenzie Thomas sang “Redbone” on the Voice last night and got no turns. Her performance was incredible, and the fact that none of the coaches turns shows me that they aren’t looking for good singers anymore.
MaKenzie should have gotten a turn from Alicia at the least, but nothing! I cannot believe it.
