The Voice Coaches React to American Idol Judge Drama

The Voice Adam Taylor/NBC

Since American Idol is reportedly considering replacing Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, are the coaches of The Voice tempted to switch shows?

After last night's live show, we couldn't resist bringing up the rumors that Fox might be cleaning house on Idol. After Adam Levine responded with a spirited "Oh, snap," Blake Shelton was quick to insist that they could not be coaxed over to Idol.

"We're not available. We are not available for any other shows," Shelton promises.

As much as The Voice coaches are happy with their current gig, Levine defended Idol.

"Let's not forget, American Idol has been around for a long time and it's extraordinarily successful. We could only be so lucky to be around that long," Levine says. "[The Voice] is a fun way to choose talent. I think that's what makes the show extremely unique, is that you have your backs turned. I think that is the biggest thing that makes a difference. Also, we're all singers. Sometimes they don't have singers on other shows, and you're like, ‘Oh, interesting.'"
