“The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon made a surprise appearance on NBC’s “The Voice” this week to send Coach Blake. Shelton left with a slight musical tantrum.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum, the talented impressionist, was urged by host Carson Daly during Tuesday’s session. He took the stage to perform a 1982 cover of Michael McDonald’s “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near)” for Shelton and fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper. during the blind audition of a singing competition As Fallon performs, Clarkson, Horan and Chance all ring the doorbell to turn their chairs in their favor — only to realize they’ve been tricked by the late night host.
But Shelton didn’t give up easily. Patiently listening to Fallon’s audition with skepticism. When Fallon learns that country stars aren’t playing too. He walked over to Shelton’s chair and rang the bell for him.
“You can’t do that,” Shelton said and laughed. “You broke the rules.”
“I have to,” Fallon replied. “Hello everyone! I love you! I was across the street from the parking lot doing ‘That’s My Jam,’ and I texted Carson, and I said, ‘I need to come over here and say hey, Buddy.’ Twenty-three seasons. Congrats. You’re a legend.”
The longest-serving coach on the Emmy-winning show. Shelton is leaving the show after a 12-year stint in hopes of doing so. “A Little Thing,” the Grammy-nominated country star, has been a regular on the show since its debut in 2011 and announced her departure from “The Voice” in October 2022.
As for Fallon’s stunts, Shelton, 46, said he knew what was going on. And there’s no way he’s hitting the button for this performance. meanwhile Clarkson said she took the lead. So Fallon had to be on her team.
“It didn’t take long for me to realize it was Jimmy Fallon and there was no way I could press the button. He doesn’t deserve a chair on this list,” Shelton said in the testimonial. “Jimmy’s imitation is the equivalent of walking up to Michael McDonald and slapping him in the face as hard as you can.”
