Producers of the hit show “The Voice” have been tossing around the idea of filming back-to-back seasons. However, one of the judges isn’t a huge fan of the idea.
On Friday night following his CMA Music Festival performance at LP Field, Blake Shelton expressed his concerns with the idea of shooting two seasons a year. “At some point, something’s gotta give,” he said. “I’ve been very vocal with the network and Mark Burnett’s production company.”
Blake added, “It’s like ‘Man, this sucks, because the reason that you want the four of us is because we’re viable artists right now-current. And we can’t do both, if we do back-to-back seasons.’ I’ve been hammering ‘em about it.”
He said that loves doing the show, but wants to be able to tour and make music for his fans. “I look forward to that,” he explained. “I love it, and I can’t imagine not being a part of ‘The Voice,’ ever. I mean, I’d love to do it from now on. But it just needs to work in a way that I can still come out here and see these people that are here (attending the CMA Festival) tonight across the country and do that at the same time.”
Blake is already getting ready to work on the fall season of “The Voice.” “We are gonna do this fall. We’ve already committed to that. And in fact we start in a week or two, filming it again.”
We hope that Blake and producers can work out a compromise!
