The answer might surprise you. Months after the first season of The Voice has ended, who would have thought that Blake Shelton would still be in regular contact with his contestants from Team Blake? After Blake was the one to give both Xenia and Dia Frampton the confidence they needed to make it to the top two of his team, he now credits Dia with giving him the passion to record music again, Taste Of Country reports. What other reality competition judge or “coach” would stay in contact after so long?
“I still keep in touch with both of them,” Shelton tells Taste of Country. “I talk to both of them a couple of times every week. I really embarrass Dia a lot — still — to this day. Every time I see her, I just gush over her. I’ll start drinking and get drunk, and send her these sappy emails about how she made me excited about music again and I love her. She’s always [replying back with] ‘Thanks …’ [laughs].” – Blake to Taste of Country
It’s great to see that someone generally cares about the people he meets on a reality singing competition. The Voice returns for a second season on NBC right after The Superbowl next year. Good luck Blake!
