While 'The Voice' may be winning the ratings battle right now, the show has been criticized for not having a major success story like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood from 'American Idol.' Every week, millions of fans are tuning in to The Voice to see who advances to the next round and ultimately, who wins.

But, what does winning The Voice really get you?

On Oprah's Next Chapter, Oprah asked host Carson Daly why we haven't seen these great Kelly Clarkson-type success stories coming out of The Voice.

"Oprah, when did the endgame become success?" Carson replied. "And what does it mean to be successful? What does it mean to be a breakout star?"

Usher also chimed in, adding that "they've come close..."

Unfortunately for the aspiring artists, "close" doesn't always cut it.

While the winners of The Voice and American Idol both receive recording contracts, the latter definitely seems to have bred more success stories.

If you were an aspiring singer, which show would you rather try out for?
