Explaining her coaching outlook, Aguilera said: “There is no good and bad. This isn’t about tearing people down. I want to bring these people up.”
The new twist in this vocal show is that judges will sit in big red chairs, their backs turned to the singers while they perform.
“The Voice really does stand for what it says,” said Aguilera. “Instinctually, you can judge people based on the way they look. I love that fact we get to sit here with our backs turned away from these people and completely use just one sense to hear these voices. I’m not looking for vocal acrobatics, who has biggest range [of] high and low. I’m looking forward to getting moved.”
“I mean, look at me,” she added. “Up here. You think any record exec would look at this face full of bloat, regret and shifty eyes that suggest I’ve woken up in a strange bed filled with my own urine? So I just want to bring these people up, you know? Pump them full of hope and optimism and then go back to my mansion as that hope bounces them from rejection after rejection because I told them talent actually matters. It’ll be a beautiful, moving experience. Are you going to eat that baby?”
