Before season 15 of The Voice kicks off later this month, coaches Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson sat down with each other to discuss their respective post-American Idol careers.
“I watched you win,” J-Hud tells Kelly in the exclusive video on Billboard. “You were my inspiration, and to think I did not win, and then to be able to sit here with you…”
“I think you won in life,” Kelly tells her. “Yeah, I think that’s what matters.”
They both talk about the different perspectives they can bring to the contestants, being that they’ve gone through a singing competition show themselves. Kelly, of course, won the first season, and Jennifer placed seventh in season three.
“You can get a perspective of ‘Yes, you can win,’ and I can get the other perspective of ‘You don’t have to win, it’s a matter of what you take and do with your opportunity,'” Jennifer says.
The two will be joining coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton when The Voice returns September 24 on NBC.
