While the news may have broken that two of the coaches on NBC’s The Voice are dating, that doesn’t mean that they will let that distract them from trying to take home a trophy from the competition. Especially if Blake Shelton has anything to say about it…
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone Country, the “Sangria” singer plainly confessed that he still has his eyes on the prize. Nothing’s better than a little friendly competition, right?
“No matter how kind I may be to Gwen when it’s just her versus Adam, I’m still in this thing to win it.” Shelton tells RS.
Following airings of taped shows for weeks on end, elimination rounds, and battles, Shelton still gets nervous when the end of the season rolls around. The first live round and finale are the most nerve-wrecking for him “because you find out what your team is really made of as far as this kind of pressure”.
“This is life, it’s raw, there’s no editing. And if you’re lucky enough to have someone in the finale, by then you’re attached and you’re so invested in that person, you really want them to win.”
Shelton has won “The Voice” four times already with an equal number of team members taking the runner up spot.
Who do you think will be the winner of season nine?
