The Voice 2016 will be back with a new set of mentors. When it returns this September, Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus will join long-time coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. But with the entrance of Keys and Cyrus, what changes will they bring to the show?
The arrival of Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys on the show marks history as two women will take their seats on the iconic red swivel chairs. Last season, Christina Aguilera made history as she became the first female coach to bring victory on the show. With Keys and Cyrus joining in, fans are expecting and looking forward to bigger and greater things.
“Two women coaches is what The Voice needs,” Keys told People Magazine. “I’m looking forward to rooting people on and being here for the dreamers like me. You’re able to hear someone true for who they are, and that’s what music is,” she further added.
Likewise, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker also highly believes in the power of female coaches on the show. Moreover, she promised that she and Keys will “keep the bickering to a minimum”. She even joked that they’d leave the “girl cat fight” scenario to the male coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
This seems to be contrary to previous reports on Cyrus. Earlier reports revealed a rumoured feud between the singer and the Maroon 5 frontman. According to a previous report, Adam Levine and Miley Cyrus weren’t getting along well on set. A source claimed that the two have short attention span. Hence, Levine feels “agitated” when Cyrus cuts him off. Cyrus on the other hand, enjoys “getting under his skin,” the source claimed.
For Shelton and Cyrus, things are better, the source reported at the time. Cyrus, however, jokingly threatened Shelton that she’ll win this season. But, Shelton’s current beau Gwen Stefani doesn’t feel comfortable with Shelton and Cyrus working together. While she trusts her boyfriend, a source claimed that Stefani thinks Miley can be “very flirty”.
The Voice 2016 will premiere in September 19 on NBC.
