The debut of season two of The Voice is just around the corner and to celebrate, the folks over at Rolling Stone have decided to feature the four coaches and team leaders on their cover. Looking sharp are Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton photographed by Mark Seliger. In the issue that hits stands on February 16, RS takes a deeper look inside the walls of the hit talent search show that is attempting to give Idol and X Factor a run for their money.
At the heart of this entertainment phenomenon is a game show with rules that Rolling Stone lays out quite clearly. Try not to wince when blind auditions trick you into picking an unsightly singer; always declare it “heartbreaking” to choose the winner of a vocal battle, no matter how easy the decision actually is; and most importantly, never, ever interrupt Christina Aguilera when she is speaking.
In the interview, Aguilera reveals that her team dukes out in a battle with an interesting song that not many would expect from the blonde bombshell. “In one of my battles, this girl and guy are doing Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box,’ and I’m not sure if people would even expect that from me…” This is true. One thing is certain, Christina holds her own in group full of men and proves that she’s not to be messed with. Who knew that four artists, all unalike in every way would come together to create such a television spectacle. “Just look at the four of us,” says Adam Levine. “It’s just so wrong and so amazing.” Check out the full Rolling Stone cover below.
