‘The Voice’ Fans Are Noticing This Contestant Looks a Lot like Blake Shelton’s Ex, Miranda Lambert
Fans are also noticing more than just the contestants’ pitch and voice. There is one person fans believe looks like Blake Shelton’s ex-wife and country star, Miranda Lambert. Find out what they’re saying and more.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got a divorce in 2015
Shelton and Lambert were married from 2011 to 2015. Their divorce ended up bringing Shelton closer to Gwen Stefani because she was going through the same thing.
“That’s kind of how our friendship and bond started, that day,” the country singer told Billboard. “It went from that, to checking in on each other once a week through email — ‘This sh*t happened to me, what happened to you?’ — to maybe three times a week, then every day, to ‘Hey, here’s my phone number if you ever want to text.’”
He then said, “Next thing I know, I wake up and she’s all I care about, and I’m wondering if she feels the same about me.”
Lambert is now married to Brendan McLoughlin
Lambert has moved on too by getting married to NYPD officer, Brendan McLoughlin. They surprisingly got married in a secret ceremony.
“When you truly find someone that loves you for who you are, and that you genuinely are smiling, it’s like a smile from the inside,” she told ET Online. “It’s a light that kind of clicks on, that you really didn’t know was off.”
The songwriter joked that being “too happy” could affect her work. She said she still needs to write some sad songs.
Fans think Marybeth Byrd looks like Miranda Lambert
One fan tweeted a picture of the contestant next to a picture of Lambert. She tweeted, “After all these weeks watching #TheVoice, I just figured out who Marybeth Byrd looks like: Miranda Lambert. Awkward!”
Other fans commented underneath also seeing the similarities. “Yesss! I’ve been trying to figure out who she reminded me of. Thanks for figuring it out,” one person wrote. Another fan wrote, “That’s kinda nuts and I can’t believe I didn’t notice it.”
Byrd is on Team John Legend. She has sang different genres but she is mostly tied to country. Earlier in the season she bonded with Shelton over her song choice of “Go Rest High on That Mountain” by Vince Gill. She dedicated it to her grandfather who just passed away.
“I was just talking about that particular song today and what it meant to me through the memory of my dad, so I know how you feel trying to get through it,” Shelton told her on the show according to Yahoo. “I can’t even listen to it sometimes, because it’s so heartbreaking. Great job, sis.”
Fans will have to wait and see how far Byrd will go this season. But it’s an interesting coincidence that her famous doppleganger could be Lambert.
