Rolling Stones ‘Start Me Up’ Is Coaches’ Choice to Launch ‘The Voice’ Season 3
Is there a better kickoff song for anything than the Rolling Stones‘ ‘Start Me Up’? In this case, the track was the perfect selection for the coaches of The Voice to start the season on a rocking note.
While the show primarily focuses on those competing for ‘The Voice’ title each year, on occasion the stellar musical talents serving as the coaches unite to provide their own group performance, and as we’ve seen in the previous two years, even though all of them are singers, they can create a pretty formidable band.
In the version that aired tonight, we got to see Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine handling guitar duties, while soulful singer Cee-Lo Green emerged from backstage belting Mick Jagger‘s memorable words. He would soon join Levine onstage as both gave full voice to the “You make a grown man cry” lyric.
As for the other two coaches, the often bickering Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera looked awfully chummy as Aguilera sat in Shelton’s lap and played up to her charming cohort while Shelton’s chair spun around to greet Levine and Green face-to-face. At this point, all four coaches were chiming in on the 1981 classic.
