Kelly Clarkson to Help Mentor Blake Shelton’s Team on ‘The Voice’
Kelly Clarkson, the original reality television success story, may soon be lending a hand to contestants on the hottest new singing competition program. Clarkson is said to be in line to help Blake Shelton mentor his singers on NBC’s ‘The Voice.’
The original ‘American Idol‘ would only appear on the show for one episode, which the New York Post says will air in late March or early April. By then, the four coaches — including Shelton, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera — will be done with the swiveling chairs and have moved on to grooming a successor to season one winner Javier Colon.
Clarkson has professed her love for the show in the past. Last September, she told the Post that she’d love to audition for the show, just to see if she can get the chairs to turn around. “The thing I love about ‘The Voice’ is that they’re more mentors — they’re not judges. I would never really want to be a judge, just because I don’t want to break people’s hearts.”
The ‘Because of You’ singer (and Jason Aldean‘s ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ duet partner) spent New Year’s weekend with Shelton and Miranda Lambert. The two ladies crashed Shelton’s show in Oklahoma, performing Joan Jett‘s ‘I Love Rock and Roll.’ The Post reports that Levine was also on hand for the weekend fun.
