While we are counting down the days until The Voice returns for its 14th season, ET Canada caught up with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton who are more than ready to claim their fourth and seventh trophy, respectively.
Although Shelton has won the most seasons out of any coach, including Levine who has been on the show just as long as him, he’s ready to keep that streak going this year. Joining them is Alicia Keys, who is returning to the iconic red Voice chair for the first time since winning Season 12 with Chris Blue, as well as Kelly Clarkson, who, from the promos, is proving that she’s not going down without a fight during her first season as a coach.
All four coaches’ lives revolve around music and every aspect of it. For example, Keys is serving as Blue’s manager! It has even served as something Shelton depended on.
“Music has been a gift on a lot of different levels for me, whether it was singing, songwriting, the instruments, producers…I was just fascinated with music,” he explained in the clip. “It truly did, at some points in my life, it saved my life.”
Because music was a lifesaver for Shelton, he puts all the more passion into the show, trying to help artists at the beginning of their careers when it’s just so easy to give up.
“What makes The Voice so special is we actually take time to work with these artists and try to affect change in their ability to be a performer,” he said.
Season 14 of The Voice kicks off on February 28 on NBC. Watch the ET Canada clip below.
