The singing competition show is currently on Season 12, so it has been down a long road. Along the way there have been success stories to come out of The Voice, with musicians having a career after the show. There have also been multiple contestants who reached No. 1 on the iTunes charts. Although The Voice has had some wins, there are signs that it might be reaching its end. How so? The show has seen decreasing ratings in recent seasons. Here is why The Voice may not last much longer.
Contestants will realize it’s not a star maker
At least when a contestant tried out for American Idol, they had inspirations like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Adam Lambert to look up to. These people have won Oscars, Grammys, and have appeared on television shows and in movies. They have achieved true success and notoriety since the show, and some of them didn’t even win! This shortcoming of The Voice is no secret.
“The Voice is very successful,” coach Adam Levine told Rolling Stone “but it’s got a ways to go if it wants to have as profound an impact as Idol. I’m not going to lie to you: I think there are problems … Millions of people watch the show every week and fall in love with a singer, then you don’t hear much from them.”
