Usually, TV competitions are quiet about their network competitors. TV reality is arguably the most self-centered exercise in entertainment, and accordingly, acknowledging the competition is wasted words, since they're not on your own show.
Sometimes though, egos get the best of people. In this case, American Idol's Randy Jackson commented to the Television Critics Association that NBC's The Voice was for 'second chance people'. "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," he quipped, referring the first season's winner.
Adam Levine, the Maroon-5 front-man and judge on The Voice said to Ellen on her eponymous show afterwards, "Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that. Because he of anybody should know that if you're in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances. So we love and embrace having that being part of the show."
