Talking about the Idol alum Kelly Clarkson, who headed to The Voice to act as a guest adviser, Mike Darnell, the president of alternative entertainment said, "It's a compliment to Idol. Other shows want to use our stars for their shows. We're not hiring a lot of people from The Voice to be on our show."
Executive producer Ken Warwick said, "This is the show that produces the stars." And he added an extra oomph to his statement by calling British X Factor winner Leona Lewis a "one-and-a-half-hit wonder." Meanwhile, Judge Randy Jackson said, "It's like second-chance theater over there (The Voice)."
