Blake Shelton: “The Voice”
Country Star Blake Shelton is known for judging the NBC reality competition The Voice, but he’s still committed to his day job; Blake recently racked up five Country Music Award nominations. He joined Kelly and Michael on Live! September 10 for an interview, and when Kelly congratulated him, Blake (somewhat) humbly bowed to the crowd in appreciation.
Blake Shelton: Country Music Awards
In all seriousness, Blake explained that it’s always a surprise when an artist receives such recognition for his work. “I’m not sure how that happens,” Blake admitted, when discussing being nominated for awards. He and his wife, Miranda Lambert, are both nominated this year at the CMAs. They are going head-to-head in the Song of the Year category, where Miranda is nominated for a song that they wrote together, “Over You.” Blake hopes that his wife wins, but Kelly’s hoping for a tie.
Blake Shelton: Cheers It’s Christmas
Since it’s Cutest Kid Week on Live!, Kelly and Michael showed off some adorable baby pictures of Blake. Then, they discussed Blake’s Christmas album, Cheers It’s Christmas. On the album, Blake collaborates with huge stars such as Kelly Clarkson, Michael Buble, and Reba McEntire; however, the biggest star of all is Blake’s mom, who sings with him on a track.
Of working with his mom, Blake said that it’s still a normal mother-son relationship. However, she did ask Blake one favor, which was “to not sound like such a hick.”
Blake Shelton: “The Voice” 3-Night Premiere
Blake is a judge on The Voice, along with Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine. The three-night premiere kicks off on Monday, September 10 2012. Kelly wanted to know, what can we expect from the new season?
Blake admitted that the notoriously quarrelsome judges sometimes get along with each other (gasp!) this season, and we got to watch a sneak-peek where Blake and Christina actually agree on a contestant. Plus, there are now sixteen artists per team, which keep the judges busy!
Don’t miss the new season of The Voice starting September 10 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
