“The Blake Shelton Show” .
.. err ... "The Voice" is back!
The country star is kicking off the new season of NBC's singing competition with a three-season winning streak, with Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope and Jermaine Paul emerging as champions on his watch. Shelton dominated last cycle, with two of his singers winding up in the top three, and all three of his finalists reaching the final six.
With that many victories under his belt, one might think the show would level the playing field for fellow coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green this time around. After all, based on the rules of the show, Shelton starts with an advantage.
Auditioners know he’s the coach who picks winners, and given that successful singers choose which coach to work with if more than one turns their chair around, there’s no reason for any country crooner to pick anyone else. In all likelihood, Shelton will find himself with singers who the other coaches covet because of his track record at mentoring champions.
