Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton are really getting into it on this season of The Voice. They used their blocks on each other (and didn’t even get the artist in either case), and then in Tuesday’s episode, Blake played a pretty elaborate prank on Kelly. The bickering tunred physical and somewhat out of control as you will see in the video.
The little trick backfired, of course, and Blake ended up being chastised by not only Kelly, but also his girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Find out what made her call him a “liar and a cheater.” Here’s the full story:
Blake Shelton Pranks Kelly Clarkson
While Kelly was critiquing artist Marybeth Byrd, No Doubt’s song “Don’t Speak” suddenly started playing, and none of the coaches seemed to know where it came from. “Somebody’s trying to cheat for me,” Gwen said.
It happened again a few seconds later, and Kelly accused Blake of doing it. He sarcastically denied it, but when it happened again shortly after, it became pretty clear he had something to do with it.
Later, after Kiara Brown’s audition, Blake accidentally revealed himself by hitting his button and starting the song. He still tried to deny it, until John Legend hit the button again and proved it.
Are ‘Kelly And Blake’ The New ‘Adam And Blake’?
The prank inspired Kelly to walk over and playfully punch Blake in the arm, telling him, “You sit on a throne of lies!” Gwen said she couldn’t believe Blake had lied to her, to which he responded, “No, I love you!”
The incident has us wondering if Kelly is the new Adam. When Adam Levine left the show, we assumed Gwen and Blake would be the new entertaining pair, but maybe we thought wrong. In fact, maybe it’s actually Kelly and Gwen vs. Blake, while John laughs.
As Johnny Bliss pointed out in this week’s Talent Recap show, Kelly is in Adam’s chair this season. He added his belief that her and Blake’s bickering feels natural and not forced. What do you think? Are you enjoying Kelly vs. Blake, or do you wish the coaches would just focus on the talent?
