Preview of NBC’s singing competition season 23 featuring returning coach Kelly Clarkson and new additions Niall Horan, Chance the Rapper, and Shelton.
The Voice, the popular singing competition show on NBC, is back with season 23 and the four coaches – Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Niall Horan, and Chance the Rapper – are ready to bring their A-game. In a recent interview, the coaches sat down to discuss their strategies and tactics for the new season. As expected, the conversation quickly turned into a playful game of insults and jokes.
Kelly Clarkson, who has been a coach on The Voice for several seasons, was quick to poke fun at Blake Shelton. “I don’t want to help them actually win, but everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie,” she joked, before sharing some advice she gave to the new coaches.
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton, who is entering his final season as a coach on the show, admitted that he has used some questionable tactics in the past to woo contestants to his team. “Saying my cat just died or that it’s my birthday has frequently worked,” he said with a chuckle. Playing up the fact that this is his last season seems to be working for him as well. “I don’t have any empty spots,” he proudly proclaimed. “I think it’s a powerful thing for people to hear.”
Despite the joking around, Shelton did get serious about the experience, admitting that he is trying to savor every moment of his final season on the show. “I’m trying to remind myself to really take in the moment,” he said. “So I apologize, because I know I do say it a lot, but it’s a thing that I’m doing for myself because me and my therapist talked about it and they were like, ‘Just say it, say it out loud.'”
Clarkson, never one to miss a beat, interjected with a laugh, “There is no way he’s ever gone to therapy.” The playful banter between the coaches was clearly in full swing.
This season of The Voice also marks the debut of new coaches Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper. Horan, the former One Direction member, is excited to bring his experience as a performer to the show. “I’ve done what these contestants are trying to do,” he said. “I’ve played small clubs, I’ve played arenas. I’ve done it all, and I’m excited to share my experience with them.”
Chance the Rapper, known for his unique style and sound, is looking forward to discovering new talent. “I think it’s really dope to be able to find somebody that nobody else is looking for,” he said. “I think it’s really important to find those voices that are unique and that can’t be replicated.”
With such a diverse group of coaches, each bringing their own unique style and perspective to the show, season 23 of The Voice is sure to be an exciting one.
