Country superstar Blake Shelton sent fans into a judgmental frenzy after he posted a video to his Facebook explaining what his “pre-show ritual”consists of.
In the video Shelton explains his ritual hasn’t changed in the 15 years he’s been performing. The country star enjoys throwing a few drinks back before stepping out on stage to help him relax and match the energy of the crowd.
“I like to have a drink or two before I go on stage,” says Shelton. “I like to be relaxed. I like to feel like I’m on the same level as that crowd out there…I wanna be having a good time.”
Shelton says while his ritual hasn’t changed, what he drinks often does. Currently he enjoys a Smithswork vodka to help loosen him up before stepping out on stage. Shelton also went on to explain that he cranks up the radio of “whatever he’s into” at the moment to complete his ritual.
Some fans took to the comment section on Facebook to express their concerns, but regardless of people’s opinion of what he does before stepping on stage, everyone can agree the man knows how to put on a show.
