FWIW, the exception to this case is if the mixing engineer has intentionally built a sound stage where the performers/singers/actors etc. have been panned to be in different places acoustically.  It's not usually done with a single vocalist, but for something like a round-table multi-party interview it makes some sense.  Likewise the technique might be found in some music recordings with backup singers, etc.

In such cases, an audio vector scope (as John Stortz mentions) may show an unbalanced off-axis line with mono speech, and it would shift around as different speakers are heard (though it would be tougher to see with stereo audio effects as typically heard during musical selections).

There's definitely an art to soundscaping and mixing audio.  Too much, and it's unnatural and distracting; none makes it just as uninteresting (and therefore non-distracting) as the last spoken selection before it.
