Blake Shelton Is REALLY Good At What He Does
It’s kind of become a joke at this point that Blake Shelton wins The Voice almost all of the time. That what certainly true last night when he and Chloe Kohanski took home the disembodied-hand-making-a-V-sign-while-holding-a-microphone statue. This time it wasn’t even for a country artist since Chloe is most definitely a rock singer. Why is Blake so good at this?
Well, first of all he’s been doing it for a long time. He and Adam have done the show 13 times already. But it’s more than that. In a way, Blake is a lot like Simon Cowell. He’s much nicer, sure, but they both have an eye for talent. It’s easy to pigeonhole Blake into the country lane and only see him as that. But the story is more complex. Remember, Chloe was originally on team Miley but Miley cut her loose. Blake quickly stole her because he knew she could be a winner. As great as Chloe was with Miley she exploded once she was under Blake’s tutelage.
This in spite of the fact that musically Chloe is more similar to Miley or Adam. But Blake knows talent when he sees it and knows how to present it, shape it, and bring it forward. Would Chloe have won if she had stayed on team Miley? Perhaps. But once she was under Blake’s fleshy wing, I knew she had it made.
