Randy Jackson Clarifies His Comments About The Voice

February 23, 2012 02:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Randy Jackson, of FOX‘s American Idol, recently criticized the contestants of NBC‘s The Voice, which left Adam Levine annoyed with his friend. In a new interview, Randy Jackson clarified his comments, in what we think was a truce effort. Read on for more…

“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 Jackson recently stated, as he accused The Voice of being a “second chance” for the contestants. After Jackson’s comments, Adam Levine fired back, with a big “shame on you” to Randy, and now Randy Jackson would like to clarify some of his comments, as he feels he was misunderstood.

Randy Jackson spoke to Ellen DeGeneres recently, where he clarified: “I think The Voice is a great show and what they do is great. I was just saying that I’d actually worked with Javier. Nobody knew Kelly Clarkson before, nobody knew Carrie Underwood before. What I was trying to say was the premise of our show is about finding the next undiscovered talent, the great undiscovered talent in America.”

Randy Jackson went on to add that there is no bad blood between he and Adam Levine over the comments, explaining: “It’s all love. Adam is a friend of mine. He and I, and Ryan Seacrest have hung out a zillion times, there is no disrespect.” Of course, no matter how much Randy tried to clarify his original comments, he did end up pointing out that Scotty McCreery now has a platinum album, which feels o us like he is rubbing that in Adam Levine’s face.

    Welllll, Randy told the truth right?? Scotty does have a Platinum album and I’ve never heard anything about Javier after he won the Voice contest. Scotty is touring with Brad Paisley to glowing reviews. He’s also got 2 Gold singles besides his Plat. Album and now he’s nominated for an ACM Award. His album also debuted at #1 on Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. Maybe Randy didn’t mean to rub anything in Adam’s face, but I certainly am doing so. So there!!! LOL
