Miley Cyrus promises there won’t be any catfights between her and Alicia Keys when they join The Voice coaches panel for season 11 in the fall.
The singer told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Wednesday night that she was “really excited” to mentor artists on The Voice.
“It’s the first year there’s been two girls [on the panel],” explained Miley. “I think everyone loves to see Blake [Shelton] and Adam [Levine] go back and forth. We are actually very much the opposite.”
The two were together at the NBC upfronts Wednesday morning and according to Miley, she and Alicia could not have gotten along better. “It’s like a total love fest,” she said. “Her and I are both extremely mellow.”
Miley added: “I think when people put girls on TV they expect–this is how we’re going to get the ratings. There’s going to be drama. There’s going to be cat fights. They think we’re going to bring the dramatics to the show.” But Miley insists, “We couldn’t be more opposite. We both just love music.”
Miley believes both she and Alicia have a chance to win the competition because they both have a “fresh start” on a show that’s 10 seasons in. “We’re actually really excited to go in. We haven’t done this for so long…we really want to work with each artist for as long as we can.”
Cat fights between Miley and Alicia aren’t a thing I am expecting. If Miley stirs up trouble with anybody, it will probably be with the vets, Blake and Adam, who have been on the show since season 1. “Blake made a joke that he knows why I always have my tongue out,” shared Miley, “It’s always tired because I never stop talking!”
There are already rumors that Miley and Adam butted heads during her time as a superstar advisor during the season 10 knockout rounds. Miley’s quest to be the center of attention could rub her territorial panelists the wrong way.
Miley goes on to say that she’s was surprised that the singers weren’t all ringers. “It wasn’t ever set up,” she said of the talent. “The kids weren’t secretly…in Opera houses in Germany. They are actually random-ass people from around the country!”
After next week’s season 10 finale, airing Monday May 23 and Tuesday May 24, the show is set to return to NBC this fall for an 11th featuring newbies Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys joining veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on the coaches panel. Carson Daly will return as host.
