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?
Republic Records and now former President of the label, Charlie Walk, have parted ways. According to All Access, this was a mutual decision by both parties.
Walk has been under fire and investigation for sexual misconduct. Earlier this year, Walk voluntarily sat out of the finale episode for The Four.
Walk has denied the allegations in a statement to Rollingstone.
I did not do these things and this is not who I am … Throughout my career I have always sought to conduct myself professionally and appropriately. It is upsetting to be presented with false claims from long ago that I know to be untrue and were never reported. I support the national discussion taking place right now because I believe fully in the importance in treating everyone with respect and dignity at all times.”
Roseanne returned to ABC last night to over 18 Million viewers – the highest rating for a comedy in over 4 years. Roseanne Barr is Trump supporter who plays a Trump supporter on TV, and many people are claiming that this is why Roseanne did so well on its first night back.
Roseanne doing so well helped other shows in ABC’s primetime lineup. Black-ish doubled it’s viewership, Splitting Up had more than 7 million viewers – a win for ABC!
Barr also had an awkward encounter with Jimmy Kimmel the other night on Kimmel’s talk show. Check it out:
Keep calm. Be strong. American Idol is back for its 16th season and first season on ABC. While the show has had its fair share of criticism this week, many of us are excited to have the show back! We wanted to break down our 6 favorite auditions so far!
#6 – Catie Turner with 21st Century Machine
Catie’s attitude is one that many of us have: Someone chasing a dream and just happy to be here. She performed an original song that resonated with everyone watching. She did great and we believe that she will do well in this competition.
#5 – Alyssa Raghu with “Almost Is Almost Never Enough”
Alyssa, 15 years old, and incredible. She has an “It” factor and can do really well in this business if guided correctly.
The American Idol re-boot made it’s debut last Sunday night. It’s got a new network, ABC, and new coaches, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry. I admittedly wasn’t too interested in watching the re-boot because I kind of felt it’d already ‘been there, done that’ and Idol’s run had come to an end. However, I ended up watching when it was on in the radio studio when I was at work that night. I was pleasantly surprised! I loved the contestants stories and talent, and I loved Lionel Richie! I’m a fan of Luke Bryan’s already, so it was cool to see him representing the country genre on the show, and I guess you could call me ‘indifferent’ about Katy Perry. I appreciate her talent, I like a few of her songs, but she’s not really my cup of coffee (I know, it’s tea, but I don’t like tea, so coffee it is).
I thought her coaching was fine out of the gate, she’s obviously qualified for the job, being a successful musician in the music business. However, it was when she started getting creepy with the male contestants that I started to get uncomfortable. First, was 19-year-old Benjamin Glaze from Oklahoma, who for some reason admitted as part of his story that he’d never had a girlfriend and never been kissed. At which point, Perry summoned him over for a kiss on the cheek, which then turned into a surprise kiss on the lips! Red faced and obviously embarrassed, Glaze started to back away, while the panel shared a laugh, that he eventually joined in on.

Granted, he only had half a beer in that glass. Brady still drank that faster than I can pour it. If only there was a SuperBowl for beer chugging.
