The Voice Celebrates Blake Shelton’s 12 Year Run
This evening’s show began with a pre-recorded segment of Shelton walking out of his dressing room, and high fiving fans leading all the way to the stage. Once on stage, Adam Levine greeted Shelton by giving him a hug. If you’ve been watching this show for a while, this moment truly made you get in your feels.
Then, Ceelo Green took the stage to perform an ’80’s medley for Shelton. For those who may have missed it, Green and Levine’s involvement is truly a throwback, since they were the original coaches alongside Shelton. Unfortunately, the third original coach, Christina Aguilera, was not one of the special guests on tonight’s episode.
Later, there was a compilation of Shelton and Gwen Stefani‘s cutest moment on the series. This included an old video of the two meeting on set for the first time.
Later, a jean jacket listing Shelton’s winning seasons was propelled into the rafters of the sound stage. In addition, they revealed that Stefani got Shelton’s red chair shipped to their home, so he could always have it. The show veteran joked about it, saying he finally won something from the show.
Near the end of the episode, all former popular Team Blake members came to the stage singing “Time Of Your Life” by Green Day. The incredible line up included Cassadee Pope, Jermaine Paul, Sundance Head, Todd Tilghman, and more!
