One of the criticisms about the US reality singing competition “The Voice” is that, for its past three seasons, the show has highlighted celebrity coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton more than the contestants. Also, that the drama—rivalries, bickering, goofing around—among the four has been the main selling point instead of the competition.
