The Voice is still going strong, and a big part of that is Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. In the past, there were rumors of the coaches leaving the show. But they have held out strong, and it looks like there’s no stopping their passion for the show.
There are sources saying Levine is still one of the most competitive coaches, and now, he has his eyes set on Kelly Clarkson. The future coach will be on Season 13 as an adviser, so we can find out how she mixes with the others. It turns out, Levine has no plans on taking it easy on the American Idol alum.
Here are seven things we learned about Levine’s response to Clarkson and the future of The Voice, including one coach he admits being jealous of (No. 4).
1. The show has already filmed Kelly Clarkson and Adam Levine getting competitive
It has been announced that Clarkson will be a judge on Season 14. You don’t have to wait too long to see how that’ll affect the chemistry between the judges on the show. A source revealed that they are getting along and they are playfully competitive.
“They’ve already filmed some stuff with Kelly,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Things might get pretty intense when Adam and Kelly go head-to-head!”
This probably isn’t that surprising given Levine is known for teasing other coaches like Shelton, Miley Cyrus, and more. We’ll have to wait and see what Clarkson dishes back at him next season. So how are the rest of the coaches getting along this season?
