Blake Shelton Shares a Gift From Adam Levine

Blake Shelton Adam Levine

Blake Shelton has been rather quiet since Season 5 of The Voice came to an end. Fear not! Blake is alive, well, and hasn’t changed a bit since you last heard from him. Well, strike that. He is a bit more blessed than he was before, as the Shelton/Lambert household gained another member.

In a video, Blake explained to fans that he missed being outdoors and has kept a low profile lately to enjoy some time in nature. He also promised everyone that his excessive drinker status is accurate and not just made for TV. Most importantly, Blake discussed his bromance with fellow The Voice judge, Adam Levine.

Miranda Lambert Returns To Mentor On ‘The Voice’

Miranda Lambert is back to mentor on The Voice next season, but not for the team you may think.

That’s right… Lambert will not be with her hubby, Blake Shelton, but with Team Shakira as reported by US Weekly.

Shakira and Usher will return to join Blake and Adam for the next run. We expect it to be a great competition as always, and probably a lot of fun trash-talking for the Lambert-Shelton household.

The current season is down to the Top 8 contestants, and airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.

Season 6 will begin Spring 2014!

“The Voice” Returns For Season 5

The Voice Season 5 Promo

The Voice returns on September 23rd! Raise your hand if you’re excited. Did you do it? Ok, good!

The original gang is back together for Season 5… Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, & CeeLo Green all return to their awesomely cool spin chairs.

NBC also just announced the teams’ advisors for this cycle. Music legend Cher will assist Blake, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder will join Adam, Ed Sheeran will work with Christina, and Miguel will team up with CeeLo.

Shelton has won the past three season of The Voice. The only other coach to take home a win is Levine for Season 1. Can Blake do it again?!

Tune into NBC on Sept. 23rd for the new season of The Voice.

And in the meantime, check out this hilarious promo:

Blake Shelton is Keepin’ It Country on The Voice!

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 9.13.11 PM

With auditions, battle, and knockout rounds complete, The Voice will be moving on to live competition next week.

This week, Blake, Adam, Shakira, & Usher each chose a final four to represent their teams. The competition is fierce this season and is sure to be great entertainment.

Our very own country rep, Mr. Shelton, is a 2-time Voice champ and reigning winner. He’s kept it pretty diverse in the past, but he is country strong with Team Blake moving forward.

The remaining team members are Danielle Bradbery, Holly Tucker, Justin Rivers, and The Swon Brothers. While there was a great deal of talented artists, I definitely think Blake got it right this week.

There really is only one artist on the original Team Blake that I hoped would have made it to the playoffs, and that is Caroline Glaser. I wish Blake had decided not to pair her and Danielle against each other in the battle rounds. I would have liked to have seen both of them representing Team Blake in the live shows. However, Caroline is with Team Adam now, and that really is the beauty of the steal. It allows the coaches to keep talent that maybe would have been let go too soon.

Will Blake and his country crew make it a 3-peat this season? There are some powerhouses this year, especially on Team Adam. While we know that Blake’s buddy, Mr. Levine, is always gunning to take the title from him, Shakira and Usher are definitely equally determined to win it all. The next few weeks should be a good battle!

The live rounds kick off on Monday night on NBC at 8/7c. Don’t miss it!

Team Blake!

“The Voice” Is Back

The Voice

Let’s talk The Voice!

The hit singing competition is back for season 4, and it’s better than ever.

With Usher and Shakira filling Cee Lo and Christina’s spots, we have some new personalities in the mix. And that mix works amazingly well. The four coaches seem to have a great chemistry and a friendly competitive rivalry. We know we love Blake and Adam, but Usher and Shakira might be the perfect additions. The banter is funny and witty, and there just seems to be a genuine respect among the group. I like it… a lot.

First, let’s look at our country boy’s team. So far, Blake has picked up 3 team members: Cara & Rhian Morgan (The Morgan Twins), Danielle Bradbery, and Christian Porter.

The Morgan girls are the first set of twins to ever appear on The Voice. With their harmonized runs on Alicia Keys’ “Fallin’,” they got all four coaches to turn around.

@morgan_twins: Still in Awe that 4 chairs turned around! We feel so blessed! Thank you for the love! #thevoice

Danielle is a 16-year-old country singer, who impressed us with her version of Taylor Swift’s “Mean.” Danielle is one of my favorites so far, and I see her doing very well on Blake’s team.

@dbradbery: I’d like to say Thank you so much to everyone, y’all have no idea how much this all means to me, I feel so blessed!! Y’all are amazing <3

Christian is a singer-songwriter from Pennsylvania who caught everyone’s attention with his cover of  LMFAO’s “Sexy And I know It.”

@porterchristian: Thank you guys so much! I can’t even handle the support and all the tweets!

Congratulations to Team Blake! We’re excited to watch.

However, there was one country girl that I felt Blake missed out on. You know I’m talking about Tawnya Reynolds. I was surprised that Blake did not turn his chair for her, but he only has so many spots and needs a diverse team so I get that he has to let some country talent go in the process. Anyway, Tawnya will be just fine and is with Team Shakira!

All of the auditioners did a really great job, but two people stood out for me so far… Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill. Both girls chose Adam… I must say that Team Adam has some powerhouses already.

Audition episodes will continue for the next couple of weeks before they head into the Battle Rounds. Tune in Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC!

The Voice Renewed for 2 More Seasons

Looks like Blake Shelton will be staying at home on NBC for a little while longer. NBC announced that The Voice will have a fourth and fifth season this week, but with some big changes… superstars Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green will take a break in the fourth season, but are expected to return for the fifth. Replacing them for a season will be Shakira and Usher. Blake and Adam Levine will remain as coaches throughout the next two seasons.

NBC will be sticking to two seasons a year of The Voice – so it may be some sad news hoping to see Blake on-tour next year.

“With the addition of Usher and Shakira as rotating coaches to join Christina, , Adam and Blake in the next cycle, we know that this incredibly addictive program will remain even more relevant as we move forward through this exciting season,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt said. “My hat is off to John de Mol, Mark Burnett, and everyone who produces this classy and highly entertaining show for us.”

 

The Voice’s third season is on-air now. What team do you think is the strongest so far? Do you think Team Blake has it in them to win the title for the second year in a row?

Recap: The Voice – Episode 3: Boybanders, Mamas and Domo, Oh My!

Voice judges
First off, NBC, THREE nights in a row? I love Adam, Christina, Blake and CeeLo as much as the next person, but three in a row was a bit much.

Our first singer of the night is Samuel Mouton, a guy who cooks pizzas and washes dishes in Colorado, but hopefully not at the same time. He looks like a dirty skateboarding, short-haired Shaun White-type, but then opens his mouth and sounds like Bob Marley. It’s an odd disconnect as he sings “Redemption Song,” but Adam is the first to turn around, followed quickly by CeeLo and Christina. It’s an easy choice for Samuel, who joins Team Adam.

Next up is Chris Trousdale, a very pretty boy who was formerly a member of the boy band Dreamstreet. Don’t judge me, but I’m pretty sure I once saw Dreamstreet in concert. Anyway, Chris was basically the JC Chasez to Jesse McCartney’s Justin Timberlake. Unlike JC, however, his voice is surprisingly weak and shaky and we learn that he now works in a Sushi restaurant. Also, for a former boybander, he made a terrible song choice with “Glad You Came” by 2012 boy band, The Wanted. Although none of the judges turn around for Chris, he does get Blake Shelton on stage to “moonwalk” in his cowboy boots. I’m sure that Gif is all over Tumblr by now.
 

Recap: The Voice: Episode 2 – Meet Harry Potter & The Music Man

I’ll blame it on technical difficulties, but I may or may not have missed most of the first episode of “The Voice.” I just assumed (and you know what happens when you assume…) that my DVR would record the show, but alas, that wasn’t the case. I’ll be attempting to catch a repeat sometime soon, but, on to episode two!
 
Luckily for slackers like me, we get a brief recap of the first episode and I learn that each judge – Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine & Blake Shelton – will get teams of 16! Holy cow, what is this, pee-wee soccer?! They each grabbed two contestants in the season premiere, including a guy who sings “Listen” better than Beyonce and a bunch of other random people who sing, cry and have REALLY sad histories. 

 
Our first contestant tonight is 22-year-old Brooklynite, Adriana Louise. I can tell immediately by her tight dress and judges’-chair-matching lipstick that she’s going to garner a creepy CeeLo smile. She wails through Jessie J‘s “Domino,” and all of the judges turn around. CeeLo makes some weird comments about a wedding, but it’s Christina’s finger-wiggling and debut CD (the first Adriana ever bought) that convince her to join “Team XTina.” 

The Voice Releases New Promo Ad

If your summer has felt a little dry in the singing show department, fear not because the drought is almost over. In a little over a month, the Fab 4 of “The Voice” will be back on your TV screens, and they are all out for blood. In this new promo released by NBC, Christina, Adam, Cee-Lo and Blake perform some Matrix-esque stunts. Although we’re not sure what this has to do with singing, we’re more than happy to watch Adam Levine do pretty much…anything on TV.

“The Voice” returns to NBC on September 10th, and although we have yet to hear any contestants, we’re going to back our country boy and officially declare ourselves “Team Blake.”

The Voice Earns 4 Emmy Nominations

thevoice

Congratulations to Blake Shelton and everyone at NBC’s The Voice! They’ve racked up four Emmy nominations at this year’s award show. It’s the first Emmy nomination for Blake, who celebrated in his own special way on Twitter earlier:


 

What’s made it interesting is that The Voice beat out American Id0l in one category – for Best Competition Reality Show, who didn’t even get a nomination in the category. Looks like our prediction from earlier this year of The Voice becoming the new King of reality tv may be right on. The other three categories the show racked up nominations in are for: Outstanding Art Direction For Variety Or Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Hairstyling For A Multi-Camera Series Or Special, and, Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media – Enhancement To A Television Program or Series.

The 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 23rd live from the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles on ABC. Good luck to The Voice!
