    Blake Shelton: AI Not Responsible for Producing Superstars (Carrie mention)

    Blake Shelton: American Idol Not Responsible for Producing Superstars

    All 4 The Voice coaches sat down last night with BuzzFeed before the performance episode for a live stream chat. When the group was asked the inevitable question about the show failing to produce a Kelly Clarkson/Carrie Underwood level superstar, Blake Shelton had an interesting answer:

    “I think mostly because people like that are one in a million,” Shelton told BuzzFeed News. “The odds of American Idol having done that are astronomical. I don’t think it’s … because of that show — it was just luck of the draw that those two girls came strolling through those auditions. If it was just the result of a show, then there would be 30 superstars right now that have come out of all these shows. But it’s not. It’s just people, whether it’s on one of these shows, or YouTube, or somebody who got a record deal and got on the radio. You never know where they’re going to come from, and it just so happens that they had a couple.”

    lol talk about a deflection of the truth: The Voice hasn't produced a single "star" much less a superstar or Carrie or Kelly's stature. lol

    Sour grapes. The Voice can boast about how they are the "cooler" "sleeker" show, but the fact is that it hasn't produced a single star. Adam Levine at least admitted to that earlier this year.

    I honestly don't understand why people keep going to the voice auditions! lol

    American Idol is so much better with the winner after the show ends.

    Phillip Phillips is a bigger star than anyone The Voice has ever produced and he isn't even in Top 5 of people AI has produced.

    I actually understand a little bit of Blake's point although he isn't giving Idol enough credit or accepting the shortcomings of his own show. Idol did not make Carrie or Kelly great, they truly are one in a million, but Idol certainly gave them the exposure to let their greatness shine. As for The Voice, I've read the argument that the reason they haven't produced a star is because they are more focused on the coaches than the singers, which is I think a valid point.

    We don't even know Carrie without Idol. She was done chasing her music dream, and Idol was her last try before starting a career in journalism. People say Carrie would've made it without idol because her voice was so good, but Carrie doesn't make it if she gives up on the dream which she almost did.

    There's just so many that have found success post idol. Jennifer, Fantasia, Kat McPhee, heck even skeevy Constantine has a Tony nomination.

    In my honest opinion, I don't think these shows do make people a star. They're a means to an end - they can give people a kick start to a national Mainstream career - which sometimes has lasting success, and often doesn't.

    But it's what they do afterwards that determines whether they're going to be thought of as a star.

    Well of course

    none the less Idol had the auditions those ladies strolled into and without Idol we would not be posting on a Carrie Underwood Fans website right now. They deserve some credit.Blake doesn't seem to want to give them any.

    I wish Blake Shelton would shut up for once because this isn't the first time that Blake had to mention Carrie in the same sentence (remember back in 2007-ish where Blake had to say that Carrie don't like Country Music and Carrie went on the Grammy's after she won Best New Artist and proudly said She Loves Country Music..

    I agree with this somewhat. Carrie got her start because of Idol. She has been around for 10 years because of her talent and a lot of hard work. But there is one thing both Kelly and Carrie got out of winning Idol and that was being managed by Simon Fuller. For Carrie, having Simon Fuller and Ann Edelblute for management gave her opportunities that present day talent show contestants don't have.

    It's because he's jealous that's why he don't care about anyone but himself. I agree we all wouldn't be here if Carrie didn't go onto Idol and win and be 2-time Entertainer of the year and Grand Ole Opry member and have millions of records sold and countless hits one after an another...So i think Blake needs to watch what he says cause its going to come back and hunt you. Once someone pushes my buttons, i won't stop saying what i think.

    Carrie Underwood is here because us fans care so much about her.
    Kelly Clarkson is here because her fans care so much about her too.

    Of course he has to knock the one show that has discovered true superstars because his schtick and his show are wearing thin now. The public is growing tired of both shows but at the end of the day Idol has given the music world true superstar talent. The Voice not so much!

    American Idol was "too" responsible for Carrie's and Kelly's career in the music business and if it wasn't for Idol, we would never ever got a chance of hearing Carrie and Kelly.

    Carrie and Kelly are American Idols most prominent stars in the music industry. Jennifer Hudson has obviously reached a high pinnacle with her Academy Award and her subsequent acting career. Even other Idol stars that have had moderate success like Jordin Sparks, Adam Lambert, David Cook and Katherine McPhee are more known than anyone that has come off of The Voice. His comment was more on AI than Carrie or Kelly. He was basically implying that if they had auditioned for any singing competition (The Voice, X Factor) they would have the same successful careers that they have now. I think Blake also takes exception when people always point out that The Voice has not produced any super starts because the majority of the winners have come from his teams.
