‘The Voice’: Blake Shelton Gets Caught Using Gwen Stefani’s Song to Mess with Other Coaches
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are reunited on season 17 of The Voice. The country singer isn’t afraid to mess with his fellow coaches to get in their heads.
This latest episode showed Shelton playing a trick on them. Find out how he was caught using Stefani’s song and more.
Blake Shelton previously said he isn’t going to let Gwen Stefani win ‘The Voice’
Shelton has the most wins on The Voice under his belt, but he hasn’t won since season 13. He talked about not going easy on Stefani this season.
“I’m glad that she’s already feeling competitive,” he said according to People. “Of course, I’m not going to let her win. I’m going to have to win, but I’m going to have to do it in a way that she doesn’t feel like I beat her.”
He continued, “I don’t know if that’s possible or not because I definitely don’t want to upset her — that’s not going to pay off for me in the long run. This will be her fourth time on the show, so she’s no stranger to it. She knows what she’s doing.”
Now the new season has started and we are seeing their strategies. The couple isn’t holding any punches.
Stefani danced to beat Shelton
It looks like most of the coaches are trying anything at least once to win over the best vocalists. In a previous episode, Stefani made sure to take attention away from Shelton.
She first did this when all four coaches turned around for country singer, Brennan Lassiter. Stefani argued that Shelton is her best friend and would help her team if she asked. When things still didn’t look like it was going in her favor she walked over to Shelton.
“What are you doing?” he asked her. Stefani then begged, “I really want her.” It didn’t matter in the end because Lassiter picked Clarkson.
Stefani also competed with Shelton for Royce Lovett. When Shelton hit his button she got up and started dancing to get the attention back on her.
Shelton isn’t against going the extra mile during the blind auditions. He pulled a dirty trick in the third part of them this week.
Shelton played ‘Don’t Speak’ while Clarkson was talking
Kelly Clarkson and Stefani turned around for Marybeth Byrd. “Don’t Speak” was oddly playing while Clarkson was making her case.
“Oh, somebody’s trying to cheat for me!” Stefani said. However, no one was able to figure out who was playing the music until later. Shelton accidentally pressed his button while talking to Kiara Brown and the song began playing again.
“You’re a liar and a cheater!” Stefani yelled at him because he previously denied interrupting Clarkson. “I don’t know how Gwen could be in a relationship with someone who has such a problem with telling the truth,” John Legend added.
In the end, Stefani won Brown and Byrd chose Legend. Fans will have to wait and see if Shelton will be up to anymore tricks to mess with the other teams this season.
