Coaches on The Voice are responsible for more than just witty commentary and pressing that magic “I Choose You” button. They also help contestants develop into what the show hopes will be the next big thing in the music industry. With Alicia Keys announcing that this will be her final season on the show, we can’t help but wonder about other stars who would make great coaches.
9. Kelly Clarkson
Who else would have amazing advice to give contestants other than an artist who not only won American Idol but also went on to have a successful career after. We witnessed Clarkson’s excellent coaching abilities as a mentor in the second season during the Battle Rounds. With Clarkson’s 8th studio album set to be released sometime in 2017, who knows, maybe a coaching gig could help with her transition back to the forefront of the pop-rock genre.
