The Voice Coaches Address Show’s Failure to Produce Music Superstar

At the same Television Critics Association panel for The Voice where coach Adam Levine defended his "I hate this country" comment, he and the rest of the coaches also had to defend something: the show's track record!

Along with Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Carson Daly, Adam addressed the show's less-than-spectacular track record with breaking new talent.

With the show going into the fifth cycle this September, it's kind of odd that there hasn't been a real superstar to emerge and perform well on the charts. Adam and the other coaches emphasized that the show's primary goal, as they see it, is to support and nurture talent, not to push someone to the top of the charts.

"There's been a lot of success depending on how you define the term success," Adam said. "If you're not in the negative in this business, you're succeeding. The immediacy of winning and becoming a huge star is a fairy tale that I'd love to see take place, but it's still a fairy tale."

It's worth noting that by the start of it's fifth season, American Idol had already had Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, and Carrie Underwood, with Kelly and Carrie being some of the most successful people in the business even today.
