It looks like this word war between two massive hit shows on television is just getting started.
American Idol and The Voice are both singing contest with just different formats, though winners are still determined through audience’s votes. If you have not had any idea about this two shows, just watch their new seasons.
It started out as just a healthy television competition until judges started saying things that seem to at least infuriate or get them to be defensive of their own shows.
It started when Randy Jackson commented that The Voice is like a second-chance show for outcast and those musicians that do not have any other place to go.
That did not sit well with Adam Levine, the front man of the band Maroon 5 and one of the judges at The Voice. He was quoted as saying, “I heard about this,” Adam chimed. “Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that, because he out of anybody should know that if you’re in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances. So we love and embrace that being part of the show.
You know, god bless Randy. He was a working musician for a long time and had a lot of success and then the show Idol kind of blew him out of the water. And he is a household name now. It was an irresponsible thing to say that.”
Looks like we will be hearing more of this soon, as both shows are gearing up for their new seasons.
