Carson Daly: A Voice Constant

In 15 seasons, The Voice has seen hundreds of different contestants and many different coaches. Nothing on the show ever seems to stay the same…well that is, except for three things.

The three constants that Voice fans have always been able to count on since the show kicked off in 2011 are coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and host Carson Daly.


While other coaches, advisors, and correspondents have come and gone over the show’s 15 seasons, Levine, Shelton, and Daly have stuck it out the entire time. And with all three of them returning for Season 16 (which has already started filming), it looks like none of them will be hanging up their Voice hats any time soon.

As the host, it is Daly’s responsibility to interact with the coaches throughout the duration of the show. In doing so, he’s been able to develop a strong bond and playful rapport with Levine, Shelton, and some of the frequently returning coaches such as Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani.

Carson Confesses Which Coach Is His Favorite

Just as Voice viewers have their favorite coach or coaches, Daly is no exception. He recently let it slip on-air which coach is his favorite, and it may not be who you expected!

We’ll give you a hint, it’s one of the current coaches from Season 15…

While you would think Daly’s favorite coach would be Levine or Shelton just based on how long they’ve been on the show, that’s not the case.

It turns out his favorite coach is none other than Kelly Clarkson, who just wrapped up her second season of coaching!

Daly let the confession slip while welcoming the coaches to the stage during one episode of The Voice. As Daly said the coaches’ names, Clarkson rushed up to him and gave him a big hug, prompting Daly to introduce her as “my favorite, Kelly Clarkson.”

Kelly Rocks In Her Role As Coach

We can’t blame Daly for being such a big fan of Clarkson.

She has rocked as a coach on The Voice, scoring her first-ever win during her first season. She won yet again in Season 15, this time with young country singer Chevel Shepherd.

Based on Shepherd’s performances of country staples such as “Blue,” we always had a feeling her chances to win looked good.

What do y’all think of Daly’s confession? Do you have a favorite coach? It could be anyone from any season. Let us know!
