The Voice mentors aren't looking to find a star
BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) - The mentors on The Voice may be superstars, but the consensus is it's not on them that the singing competition show has failed to find big stars such as themselves.
Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and the show's host and producer Carson Daly addressed journalists at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. The remaining mentor, Blake Shelton, did not attend because he's on tour.
During Saturday's panel, Levine said finding a star "would be really nice" but it's not the goal.
"A lot of things have to happen in order for that to take place," he said. "I think the goal of the show is to do what we can do for these amazing singers while they're on the show ... I think that we all know that the lightning in a bottle you have to capture in order to be successful in this business is extraordinarily difficult. I'm not sure that that is the overall mission statement of the show."
