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."
