blake shelton on "the voice"

i caught some of
the voice this past week, the newest singing competition show on tv (nbc to be exact, but of course, i caught a rerun of this ryan seacrest production on e!). four judges slash coaches decide the fate of these hopeful songbirds, who i will add are VERY impressive. and i don't dole out support on a regular basis, so that's saying something! on the episode i watched, there was just one girl that i'd call a bit pitchy, but everyone else could definitely kick some american idol butt!

anyway, the judges are christina aguilera, maroon 5's adam levine, cee lo green (of grammy feather suit fame), and our very own mr. miranda-lambert-to-be, BLAKE SHELTON! i'm so excited that country music is being represented in such a prime time way! in fact, nbc's executive vp of alternative programming, paul telegdy, said, "we couldn't have a panel that represented the hottest american music without a strong country presence." if that doesn't get a YEEEEE-HAW i don't know what does.

get ready for even more country fun when reba mcentire joins her good friend blake to help coach the talented wannabes. reba and blake co-hosted this year's academy of country music awards and, more importantly, are joining forces this month for a tornado relief concert in oklahoma. in fact, they recently added a second show when the first one sold out in less than 2 hours!
