If you have been watching this season’s "The Voice", you could easily tell that there is tension between coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. Some people may think of it as just to improve the rating, but it is real as the tension is even greater when they are not in front of the cameras. Aguilera is the outspoken judge while Levine always plays as the nice guy.
Reports claimed that as Aguilera opted out of the red carpet at yesterday's NBC Upfronts, during which Levine tweeted, "I thrive on awkward moments." Levine was too far away from Aguilera during the official presentation.
It turned out that the two started having some conflict this season when contestant Tony Lucca got picked by Levine. Lucca was once a Mickey Mouse Club member, just like Christina Aguilera.
As the feud heightens, it becomes a running theme of the season, so much so that by the finals, Levine, anticipating Aguilera's criticism of his contestant's final competitive performance, wore a glittering "Team Xtina" T-shirt under his flannel and bared it when the pop star expectedly started talking thrash against the singer-songwriter.
Reports claimed that this is not just a gimmick since it is more uncomfortable behind the scenes. A question arises if Levine and Lucca pick Jay-Z's "99 Problems" for his final song as one last dig at Aguilera. Rumor has it that Christina apparently has a crush on Lucca when they were younger.
Fans surely concerned about the trouble that is going on between the two judges of NBC singing talent reality show. Yesterday, the network announced air two cycles during the 2012-2013 TV seasons (both fall and spring) with a September 9 return date already revealed. Beginning in July, there are some auditions the filming of the blind audition will start in early August ahead of the premiere.
The premier of the reality show is just a few months away from hitting the TV screen, and if the Christina’s past feuds with Kelly Osborne and Mariah Carey are any indication, she is not the type that will forgive and forget. Being a fan of the show, I do not think that the feud between Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera will help the ratings of The Voice. They must concentrate on their job, which is to criticizes or praise the performance of the talents. They are not being paid to spend months engaged in passive-aggressive taunts in order to satisfy a personal vendetta for which they seem both guilty.
