The coaches on The Voice have seen their fair share of interesting performers throughout the show's nine seasons, but never one like this.
Actor and Broadway star Neil Patrick Harris, most famous for his role on the television series How I Met Your Mother, decided to play a prank on The Voice judges for his new show Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris.
Harris went undercover on the set of The Voice, dressed as a host of the Austrian version of the show.
He starts off by interviewing the judges, and the entire experience is nothing less than awkward.
Harris interviews judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine at the same time, telling each of them that they are his favorite coach. Anyone who is a fan of the show knows that Shelton and Levine have a very competitive relationship, so Harris's statements definitely sparked up those feelings.
However, Harris wasn't satisfied with simply interviewing the coaches. He also decided to take to The Voice stage to participate in a blind audition, still wearing his disguise.
Before Harris starts singing, the coaches seem excited for what they are about to hear. "I can already tell this is a good one," Shelton says, his hand poised over his button in anticipation.
But when Harris starts singing the coaches' excitement turns to that of sheer displeasure, with coach Pharrell Williams wrinkling up his face in disgust. Although the crowd cheers loudly for Harris throughout his performance, he doesn't manage to turn a single chair.
When the coaches do turn around after Harris finishes the song, they are surprised to see that the Austrian host who interviewed them earlier has now decided to audition.
Harris lets the judges ramble on for a little while before he finally interrupts them and reveals his identity. As to be expected, the judges were quite shocked that the awkward Austrian host was actually a big-time superstar.
"You know what's really crazy is that you're a great singer and that was intentionally the worst thing ever," said Levine.
The judges can't stop laughing, even after Harris jumps off the stage and disappears into the crowd.
We also found ourselves unable to stop laughing after watching Harris's hilarious prank, and we're sure that the same will be true for you.
