We knew there would be some friendly competition emerging between these two reality-singing competition television shows.
The Voice's Adam Levine was the first to fire a verbal shot when he said on the last episode:
"The people that we're not turning our chairs around for could win American Idol."
Oooo! Burnnnn! Ha!
Somehow, we doubt that, but it was a low-blow nonetheless!
Randy Jackson has quickly responded to the blow below the belt, saying:
"It's a great thing when talent can be simple, honest and revered as opposed to spinning around with gimmicky chairs. Maybe Simon Cowell should have people opening doors. Like, 'Knock, knock; Who's singing? I can't see you!'"
He's not taking Maroon 5's frontman's comments too seriously though because he knows American Idol started it all, explaining:
"Look, none of these other shows could exist without somebody forging the path before them. I'm happy to say that Idol did that and paved the way."
However, Randy seems to actually have a legitimate concern for his genre of reality show, as he continued:
"My only fear is that with all these shows coming is that people don't tire of the format. I don't know how much singing at you the public can take."
Good point! Just wait until X Factor gets in the fight! This could get messy, folks.
Do U think the talent getting rejected on The Voice would be accepted on American Idol?
