Adam Levine to Randy Jackson: Shame On You!

February 05, 2012 11:53 AM by Shayla Perry

Say what you will about the format of The Voice versus FOX‘s American Idol, but don’t criticize the contestants of the NBC reality show; especially not around coach Adam Levine. In a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the outspoken Maroon 5 frontman addressed Randy Jackson‘s snide comments slamming the show and its Season 1 winner, Javier Colon. What did Randy say that got Adam so fired up?

Talking to reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour back in January, Jackson said that The Voice was for “second chance people,” then went on to slam the Season 1 winner, Javier Colon, who was coached by Levine throughout the show.

“The winner of The Voice, I will remind you, was an artist who had a deal at Capitol Records for several years, a failed contract,” Randy added.

And Levine’s response?

“Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that,” Adam told Ellen DeGeneres on Friday’s (February 3) show. “Because he of anybody should know that if you’re in this business you need second, third, fourth, and fifth chances. So we love and embrace having that being part of the show.”

Levine went on to point out that American Idol has served as a “second chance” for Jackson, who had a very successful music career, but is now a household name because of his involvement with the show.

    I think Adam Levine has so much more class than Randy Jackson. The music business is difficult enough, why not offer a talented artist a second chance? Also, the talent on the voice far outweighs the talent on American Idol. Last year’s Idol was such a drag, I quit watching half way through and I haven’t even bothered tuning this year. On the other hand, this is my second night in a row watching “The Voice.”
