VIDEO: First Look at ‘The Voice’ Season 15
We are just over a month away from the Season 15 premiere of The Voice! After the addition of Kelly Clarkson to the coaching chairs last season (and her first win), she is back for another round of competition with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and fellow Idol alum Jennifer Hudson. And from the preview, it’s looking like this season will be a blast!
Watch the sneak peek of Season 15 here:
From this, I already love the dynamic between all four coaches! First of all, Shevine is back in full force, making fun of each other and directing artists away from the other’s team. The relationship between Adam and Blake has honestly become a staple of the show. Personally, I’m excited to see the moments they create and the talent they manage to pull on their teams.
But now, with Kelly and Jennifer on the coaching panel, the energy is higher than ever! I’m fully expecting Kelly to battle it out with the other coaches and Jennifer to throw some shoes. These women are both here to WIN! Plus, the fact that they both come from talent show backgrounds is a huge advantage to their teams. And on a personal level, there has to be a sense of camaraderie and respect there. Or maybe not? In the preview, Kelly uses her block against Jennifer, who does not seem pleased! She seems to have blocked Alicia from an African-American female vocalist.
While the “Block” isn’t my favorite new show element, I understand why the producers have added it. It definitely brings in an interesting new twist and allows coaches a chance at an artist that they otherwise may never get. Last season, I think back to Hannah Goebel, who auditioned with Alicia Keys’ song, “If I Ain’t Got You.” Alicia was blocked and Hannah ended up on Kelly’s team! Hannah later left the show before the battle rounds for personal reasons.
All in all, I’m excited to see what Season 15 has in store! Especially if, as Adam said it, “the talent level is pretty crazy.” That along with the new digital series, The Comeback Stage, and this energetic, feisty panel, should make it a fun season!
