We thought it was a big deal yesterday when Kelly Clarkson was announced as a new personality on NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice, but it turns out Kells was actually small potatoes. She’s on there, sure, but sure are seven other new super-famous people, as NBC has now added two celebrity assistants for each of their four lead mentors on the show. Kelly joins Miranda Lambert in helping out Lambert’s hubby Blake Shelton (third wheel, anyone?) while Cee Lo gets a boost from Ne-Yo and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Adam Levine is lent a hand by Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke (dream team!) and Christina Aguilera gets to yodel-off with Jewel and Lionel Richie.
We’re not sure what the exact number of records sold between the 12 stars now involved with The Voice is, but conservative estimates puts the number somewhere in the 3 to 5 kajizillion range. Let it never be said that NBC wasn’t doing its absolute damnedest to protect its investment with its only real hit of the last 12 months—if the show falters in its second season, it certainly won’t be for lack of networking. Plus, they’re only about three pop stars away from being able to do a full-on “We Are the World” redo—that 30th anniversary is only a couple years away, you know.
