In Touch (USA) - - In the Know -

There’s no short­age of drama on the set of The Voice this sea­son. In Touch has learned that new coaches Miley Cyrus, 23, and Alicia Keys, 35, have clashed since day one — and it’s got­ten so bad that the two can’t stand to be around each other. “They are con­stantly bick­er­ing and com­pet­ing for at­ten­tion and cam­era time,” says a show in­sider, adding that the women’s on-cam­era digs are noth­ing com­pared to the war go­ing on be­hind the scenes. “Alicia doesn’t take Miley se­ri­ously and is con­stantly rolling her eyes and rais­ing her eye­brows when she speaks.” Mean­while, adds a source, “Miley thinks Alicia is way too up­tight and se­ri­ous.” But the fact that they are so dif­fer­ent is the very rea­son why NBC ex­ecs thought it would be a good idea to put them to­gether on the show. “They come from to­tally dif­fer­ent worlds with such dif­fer­ent fan bases,” says the in­sider. While con­tes­tants seem to re­spect Alicia’s tal­ent more (she’s a 15-time Grammy win­ner), the crew can’t get enough of Miley’s funlov­ing per­son­al­ity. “They think she’s the most fun judge they’ve ever had and know fans are go­ing to love her this sea­son,” says the in­sider, adding that the fa­voritism only irks Alicia more. “There is def­i­nite com­pe­ti­tion and ten­sion be­tween these two, and it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore it ex­plodes.”

“The Voice has be­come the Miley and Alicia show,” says a source.
