BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - The mentors on "The Voice" may be superstars but the consensus is it's not on them that the singing competition show has failed to find big stars such as themselves.

Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and the show's host and producer Carson Daly addressed journalists at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Blake Shelton did not attend because he's on tour.

During Saturday's panel, Levine said finding a star "would be really nice" but it's not the goal.

Aguilera says it's unrealistic to expect someone to turn into an overnight sensation and cites her own career as an example.

"The Voice" returns for its fifth season on Sept. 23.
