THE VOICE
February 26, 2018  | By David Bianculli

NBC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: A new cycle of The Voice begins with a new judge – the best judge, I’m predicting, in the history of this and all other reality competition shows. That’s because the new judge joining The Voice tonight is former American Idol contestant, and winner, Kelly Clarkson.  Yes, I know, Jennifer Hudson, another Idol contestant, appeared on the most recent cycle of The Voice, but Hudson never seemed to fully warm up to the proceedings, and was more about herself, at times, than her team members. Clarkson, who won Idol the first time around (see photo; Hudson was a semifinalist), I expect – from her prior appearances as a guest adviser – has her heart and focus in the right place, and will come to The Voice all in.
