Q: Does this finally distinguish you from "American Idol"? A: It's a very different show. [Creator] John de Mol made sure there was no humiliation in "The Voice." People said this kind of show would never work ... We're back tomorrow night [with season 5]. We want to be No. 1 again. Q: Five seasons in, do you feel like you've found the right formula? A: It's a brilliant format. Look at tonight's Emmys. "The Voice" is like producing an award show twice or three times a week. It's just a matter of keeping it fresh.
