Adam Levine is terrified of Christina Aguilera's chances to win The Voice this season. (After Alisan Porter's performance last night, can you blame him?)
The coach told E! News last week that he's very scared that Aguilera's team is so formidable this season. But it wouldn't be so bad if a female coach won for the very first time—especially the show's original female coach.
"I'm worried, and I'm not because A. I would love for a female to win," he said. "B. I would love for that female to win because she's here from the beginning. This girl deserves it. She's definitely got the best team. I can't lie about that."
For her part, Aguilera is also excited about her prospects this year (she's got quite the deep bench with Porter, Bryan Bautista and Nick Hagelin)—but she doesn't want Levine's statements to jinx anything.
"Don't jinx me, Adam! I know what they're doing," she joked. "I know what they're trying to do, setting me up for a fall!"
After the top 12 singers of season 10 were selected, Team Sexy told E! News why their coach deserved to win.
"Christina's been on the show since the beginning. She's Christina, which gives her that, and I just think it's her turn and we're all capable," says Porter.
Bautista says it's Aguilera's musical knowledge that helps him and his teammates the most.
"She's intelligent, she's great, but if she doesn't know how to tell you what to do, she'll ultimately show you how to do it because she's that great of a singer," he says. "I feel like that's incredible. When you have a coach like that, I just feel like that's winner material. That's how you win a competition, when you're able to take what you know and pass it on to your students. We're all students in the game."
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
