As long as the host of The Voice has his way, we may never see the end of the popular singing show. In fact, Carson Daly believes that the show has all of the right stuff to “outlive us all.”
For those who don’t know, Carson Daly is a co-host of the NBC News Today show. And in addition, he is also the current host and producer of NBC’s The Voice. Speaking of which, the popular singing competition will be returning on Monday, September 20. This year will mark the 21st season of the show NBC. And not only that, but the show will hit its 500th episode this fall as well.
But despite being on the air for as long as The Voice has been, host Carson Daly thinks they are really just getting started. When asked where he saw the show going in the future, Daly had a bold response.
“The format is so strong, it could outlive any of us,” he revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.
Daly thinks that since the show is moving to just one season per year, it will help keep fans more invested than perhaps in the past.
“Now we’re on once a year, so maybe we won’t be in people’s faces as much,” he said. “So, there’ll be more of an appetite when we are on.”
And as for his own personal hosting goals, he will no doubt be the host when the series hits the iconic 500-episode mark. However, he is hoping that he’s still hosting the show when episode 1,000 rolls around.
“I hope I’m hosting it for show 1,000 if there’s a God in heaven.”
‘The Voice’ Is Likely Going to Continue Changing Over the Years
If The Voice does go on for as long as host Carson Daly hopes it does, then it will most definitely continue to see turnover with the contestants and coaches.
After all, as the old saying goes, the only constant in the world is change. And for NBC’s The Voice, that has certainly been no exception. Year in and year out, fans of the popular singing show have a whole new group of contestants to cheer for. Not only that but this year there will also be a new coach.
Popstar Ariana Grande is without a doubt one of the biggest names in music. And now she will be joining country star Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend as the newest member on the panel of The Voice.
Some people may consider the turnover among coaches on the show a bad thing. But Carson Daly actually thinks the opposite. He says it’s a strength.
“I think our revolving door of coaches has been a big secret of our success.”
