The Voice coaches are well-versed in the art of provoking one another.
Without the lively discussion from the rotating cast of music business big hitters, the competition would feel quite different.

During one of Season 21’s Blind Auditions, the very gifted vocalist BrittanyBree stunned the panel of judges. Regular viewers of The Voice know that a 4-chair turn always sparks a competitive spirit among the coaches.

In termRegardingcountry singers, “Kelly is probably my major rival,” Shelton said. Do you know what I mean? She believes she is, but she’s not.
Even Adam Levine had to jump in and provide advice on how to handle Shelton.
Don’t be sucked by his crap,” the Maroon 5 singer warned. “He’s about to hurl some poison in your direction. Watch him do it in front of me. Put your eyes away from him!”
