Because a group of scantily clad models frolicking on the tropical sands of Puerto Rico wasn’t enough, the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special added Maroon 5 to the show.

In a world full of reality show competitions, The Voice, entering its eighth season, has risen above the rest, due in large part to the appeal of the music superstars that are in the judgesâ€™ chairs, every season. Granted, the artists vying for spots on the show are incredibly talented, but their coaches are undeniably at the top of their game and can provide a wealth of advice and support until itâ€™s up to America to pick the ultimate winner.
This season, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera will be battling it out amongst each other to put together teams of the strongest vocalists from across the country. During a recent conference to promote the new season, the foursome talked about what it takes to find a winning contestant, learning from each season, whether itâ€™s significant that the show hasnâ€™t had a real break-out artist, making sure your singing sounds as good as possible, rebuilding confidence in such a tough business, and why this show is enjoying continued success when their competitors have struggled.
Christina and Pharrell, what are you guys going to do this year to beat Adam and Blake?
CHRISTINA AGUILERA: With different coaches, you get different flavors and different styles and different talent that come on the show. Iâ€™m always like, â€śOkay, maybe this time.â€ť I know these guys have been on for eight seasons. And then, I wasnâ€™t on the season that Usher actually won. Honestly, I just want to have a good time, listen to great singers and great music, and just use my instincts, as usual. Everything happens for a reason. Iâ€™m sure that my time will come. But, itâ€™s not just about us. Itâ€™s great that you can share and feel proud of somebody that youâ€™ve supported through this journey, which is crazy and itâ€™s a lot of work for them, and you get to see what they go through. Itâ€™s a competitive format, which I love and hate. I donâ€™t like music to be so competitive. But itâ€™s exciting and itâ€™s a great training ground to prep them for what comes in the future, once they are not on the show. Itâ€™s an amazing training camp, in general.
PHARRELL WILLIAMS: Weâ€™ll continue to fight. Youâ€™ve got to fight.
AGUILERA: Somebodyâ€™s going to take it.
WILLIAMS: Adam is so swift. And Blake is so convincing. Aside from their experience, theyâ€™re just really talented people who have done really well, in their own careers. Artists are going to listen to them, so we just have to continue to fight. I havenâ€™t won, but I have enjoyed it so much. You see these kids light up when they see something different in themselves. Not that you brought out, but you may have just pointed at it, and they see it and are able to retrieve it and take it to another level. That, in itself, is a win for me, but it doesnâ€™t win the show. I remain content with that, but I also remain winless.

It’s only the second night of Season 8, but the coaches have taken off the gloves. With so much talent taking the stage, Christina, Pharrell, Blake and Adam must rely on their ears and instincts before pushing their buttons – and then turn on their charm to land the very best. As is the case every season, talent wonâ€™t be the issue; it’s about how each coach can mold a raw artist into a new superstar.

Season 8 arrives with a bang. Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams welcome back Ms. Christina Aguilera, and then they proceed to rock the rafters of Universal Studios Stage 12 to Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way.” The coach performance is a Voice tradition, and the coaches are clearly enjoying a chance to command the stage before getting down to business in their big red chairs. The two-hour premiere is often a bellwether of the season to come. If Monday night is any indication, here are some themes to watch.
