And then, I ran across this article that doesn't paint a very flattering picture, with more details on the contracts and how producers are able to manipulate voting if they so choose. According to this, producers can give any contestant the boot at any time.

The website has several other blog posts on The Voice. It's an entertainment website, so I don't know how reliable the information really is. Nevertheless, I found them interesting to read when taken with a grain of salt!

I also ran across the Christina article, and found the wardrobe comment hard to believe. They all seem to wear "whatever" with the exception being Blake. He's fairly consistent with his cowboy attire. 

 

This article was published in Billboard recently. It gives a little more information on the inner workings of the show. I didn't realize that contestants were compensated, along with having their expenses paid. It doesn't go into much detail, but the contracts are huge.

I was never really that keen on her as a person and find it hard to believe that she didn't know what she was signing up for considering she has done more than one stint as a coach on The Voice!

It rubs me the wrong way that she NOW is bad-mouthing the show. Why did she wait so long?

Control over clothing? Huh? Yes, Astraea, some of Miley's ensembles have been pretty wild!Cat LOL

Isn't all TV about making "good moments?"

I still love the show and realize we may hit a bad season or two.

Good points.  I still like the show. I am just aggravated with the voting issues and losing my two favs early.  I also had Sharane.  Sigh.

@ASTRAEAwrote:

@nyadrn - I heard that she'd made negative comments, but I actually thought they were about her fellow coaches, not the show's rules! I was surprised to read her comments about NBC's control over clothing, because I thought Miley Cyrus had relatively free rein. Her other comments don't surprise me at all.


@ASTRAEA @catwoman500@MaVolta  I cannot believe they control wardrobe.  Adam wears concert wear street clothes whatever. Nd it sure looks like the women do.  Maybe it is sour grapes on not being invited back??

Here is an interesting interview.  Did not expect this of Christina

 

 

THIS IS THE VOICE! 10:50 am Christina Aguilera, Former Voice Coach, Now Believes It’s a Bad Music Show

By Devon Ivie@devonsaysrelax Share

The Voice — where singers are blindly judged by a quartet of famous musicians in the hopes of getting a sweet, sweet cash prize and record deal — has been a mainstay in American reality television programming since its debut in 2011. There have been a few rotations of judges throughout the years, with Christina Aguilera being one of them from 2011–2016. (Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, meanwhile, will likely stay for all of eternity.) However, looking back at her time at NBC, Aguilera has a pretty sour taste in her mouth — and says she’ll never return to that “churning hamster wheel” of a show if asked. “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one,” she explained to Billboard. “You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.”

By the time she left, Aguilera says, her energy and spirit were totally depleted due to NBC’s strict brand control — which in turn dictated how she presented herself on The Voice. “I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules],” she continued. “Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet.” With new music coming out soon, she’ll be back to being in control.
