Just before The Voice top 10 singers face f on Monday (May 7), Adam Levine stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about his newborn baby girl — and who he thinks may be the victorious coach for Season 14.
“I will win,” the Maroon 5 frontman declared, but in a not-so-confident manner. “For me to say I have any clue at this point, because I've seen so many different scenarios, I honestly have no idea. But I hope it's me, our team.”
In her very Ellen way, the host pushed Levine to confess which coach he thinks will really come out on top. Of course, his response involved a jab at Blake Shelton (“I think that Blake has got a chance — I hate him,” he quipped), but actually showed some favoritism for the rookie the coach crew.
“I kind , in a weird way, wouldn't mind if Kelly Clarkson won. First all, I love her to pieces — don't you love her so much?” he said to the audience, resulting in enthusiastic cheers. “It'd be cool if she kind came in first season and just like, boom. That's what I did.”
Clarkson and Levine each have two artists left in the running: Brynn Cartelli and Kaleb Lee on Team Kelly, and Rayshun LaMarr and Jackie Verna on Team Adam. Levine has been the winning coach for three his 13 seasons, and if he wins this season, he'll tie Shelton's record four wins.
Before playing a hilarious game “Smash Hits,” Levine also chatted with DeGeneres about the newest addition to his family — a baby girl named Gio — and how his first-born daughter Dusty Rose is actually quite thrilled about having a little sister. “She's obsessed with Gio to the point where like, every morning she wakes up the first thing she says is 'Gio Gio Gio,'” he gushed.
