The Voice vs. American Idol: Adam Levine Responds to Randy Jackson's Diss on Ellen

Oh snap! It's about to get real!

The Voice's Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine stopped by Ellen (airing tomorrow) to chat about their upcoming second season, when Ellen DeGeneres mentioned that other singing show that's really popular on TV...you know, the one with Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler?

Yes, American Idol. Well, it seems as though judge Randy Jackson had some not-so-nice things to say about the competition.

"So Randy Jackson said basically, because there are bunch of singing competitions on the air right now. Randy said that The Voice is basically kind of a second-chance place. People that don't get in someplace else go to The Voice," Ellen told the group.

Levine had something to say to that.

"I heard about this," he explained. "Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that, because he out of anybody should know that if you're in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances. So we love and embrace that being part of the show.

You know, god bless Randy. He was a working musician for a long time and had a lot of success and then the show Idol kind of blew him out of the water. And he is a household name now. It was an irresponsible thing to say that."

(E! and NBC's The Voice are part of the NBCUniversal family.)

Do you think Randy's comment was on target or uncalled for? Sound off in the comments!
