NBC’s The Voice season 13 promo: Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton silliness

Voice season 13 promoNBC has unleashed on us the first The Voice season 13 promo, though in between Miley Cyrus and the other coaches, it’s fairly expected.

In the video below (which you can see via Mjsbigblog), the likes of Miley, new coach Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton are all seen goofing off with one another as they hype up the launch of the newest edition of the competition. This is a preview that is really all about the coaches, which shouldn’t actually surprise anyone when this is the sort of thing that the show does more often than not in order to promote the show. They know that they are the selling points going in more so than the contestants, so this is how they get you in the door.

Now that we’ve thrown that out there, the reality here still very much remains that the show could do a little bit more to promote the artists themselves when the show actually gets into the thick of things. These previews are great when it comes to getting people to watch the show for the first few weeks, but as it is, The Voice is fighting a losing game. It’s the same thing roughly every season, and it’s forgetting that one of the big things that American Idol had going for it was credibility. It may not have been necessarily the more entertaining show, but you watched it for many years with the presumption that someday, people would be famous and go on to sell records. That doesn’t happen here. You’re lucky if you even remember the prior winners a year or two after the season just because there’s not a whole lot of effort made to make you remember them. Until the record companies after the fact do a better job of actually working to make things better for artists, we don’t think the problem’s going to turn around for the show.

Did we just become a total Debbie downer in the midst of an article all about the show trying to do something fun and pleasant in their new promo? Pretty much, but this is the reality the show faces. It’s nice that there is a new coach in the mix in Hudson, but there are still some other elements far beyond the panel that need to be fixed. We’ll enjoy the show as entertainment this fall, but we’ll still have that frustration bubbling underneath, knowing that it could be so much more. If there were just a few changes made such as giving the contestants more time performing and less time doing derivative segments, that’d be a really-great start.

Excited for The Voice season 13?
