Kelly Clarkson: ‘The Voice’ Has Brought New Life Into The Music Business

Having become famous through her participation on a television singing competition, Kelly Clarkson is well aware of what usually happens on those kinds of shows. That’s why, she says, she’s chosen to affiliate herself with The Voice. With the show’s blind auditions putting the emphasis on performers’ abilities as singers and storytellers, Clarkson think the show is helping to bring passion and art back into the music business.

Digging The Digs: John Legend Loves ‘The Voice’ Coaches’ Playfulness

We’ve talked a lot about the changes to this year’s coaching panel on The Voice, especially since this is the very first season without original judge Adam Levine. And while things have definitely been different, John Legend told us that one thing hasn’t changed: All four of the judges — Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, and himself — are still having an awesome time working on the show, especially when they’re teasing each other.

For Blake Shelton, Life Will Always Be About Music

For eight years and through 17 seasons, Blake Shelton has been a fixture on The Voice. But for much longer — 18 years and 26 No. 1 songs — Blake Shelton has been a fixture in Nashville. It was his music that made him famous, and music continues to be a passion for him. Shelton says that no matter what happens with The Voice or any other project that might come along, he can never see a life for himself without his music.

No Bias? No Doubt. Blake Shelton Is Gwen Stefani’s Favorite ‘Voice’ Coach

Sure, there’s plenty of talent on The Voice, but one of the things that keeps viewers tuning in week after week is the competition — and the chemistry — between the show’s coaches. And while there have been plenty of mentions (and jokes) made about the bromance between Blake Shelton and former coach Adam Levine, now Shelton’s on the show with his real-life romantic partner, Gwen Stefani. So maybe Stefani’s a little bit biased, but when we asked which of her fellow coaches was her favorite, she (not surprisingly) raved about Shelton.

‘Last Christmas,’ Emilia Clarke Got An Earworm From George Michael

If the title of Emilia Clarke’s new movie, Last Christmas, makes you think of the Wham! holiday hit of the same name … well, that’s exactly what it’s supposed to do. Following in the mold of Mamma Mia, the story of Last Christmas is loosely based on the music of George Michael and his ’80s duo. The film even includes some previously unreleased material from Michael, but Clarke is convinced you’ll leave the theater singing the movie’s catchy (and ubiquitous) title track.
