People concentrating may not sound like the makings for scintillating television. Yet watch the coaches on The Voice in the simple act of listening, and you’re drawn in. NBC’s talent contest, now in its 15th season, remains a staple on the primetime line-up for good reason: it’s fun. Being in on the moment a star is born is exciting. Over seven-and-a-half years some of the biggest stars in the music business, including Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, CeeLo Green, Gwen Stefani, Usher, Christina Aguilera and, now, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson – along with the original dynamic duo of Blake Shelton and Adam Levine -- have carefully listened and without benefit of visuals tried to lure the best singers to their teams.
