As season 14 of “The Voice” just entered the third stage of the competition — the knockout round — it is a good time to take a look at rookie coach Kelly Clarkson is faring. She is coming off a stint as an advisor on Season 13. The first winner of “American Idol” used her experience on that reality competition series to mentor artists during the make-or-break knockouts. Clarkson returned to the show to perform on the finale that saw Chloe Kohanksi become the sixth winner for coach Blake Shelton.
Clarkson has moved effortlessly from the role of advisor to that of mentor. She has strong opinions and holds her own against both Shelton and three-time champ Adam Levine, who have been with the show since it began in 2011. She has connected with the other woman on the panel, Alicia Keys, who is back in the chair for a third stint, coming off a win in spring 2017.
Is one of these fearsome foursome your favorite coach of all time on “The Voice? Or perhaps you prefer one of the other original coaches – Christina Aguilera — who had to wait till season 11 before her first and only (to date) win. Other one-time winning coaches were Usher (season 6) and Pharrell Williams (season 8).
And don’t forget those coaches who may never have had the winning contestant but still made the show must see TV like Miley Cyrus, Cee Lo Green, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira and Gwen Stefani.
