How Did Kelly Clarkson Do on Her First Night as 'The Voice' Coach? (POLL)
In her debut, the original American Idol winner used her singing competition show experience to her advantage, convincing contestants to join her team for that very reason.
Her roots as a singing-competition champ give the Grammy winner a leg up.
Joining existing Voice coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys in the red chairs for blind auditions, she made quite the impression. The show also introduced a new feature—the block button—which allows one coach to prevent another from gaining a team member. "I feel like you all invented that because I'm coming," Clarkson noted, pointing out that the other coaches may have been intimidated by her.
Clarkson didn't directly refer to Idol, but she did stress to one of the contestants her strengths when it comes to competition. "I know Blake has won a lot and I'm the rookie, but I'm just saying, I have won a competition."
Clarkson joins coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys for Season 14.
Overall it was a fun night of coach banter and inspiring contestant stories, building up an impressive start of the season. Clarkson's first appearance as a coach has received an enthusiastic response thus far—but would you expect anything less from gem like her?
